Dextra Character Design by YoriNarpati Dextra Character Design by YoriNarpati

I haven't posted anything for a while, thought I'd just make a sketch dump of my OC, Dextra, for a steampunk sci-fi story I'm working on with my sister *bon2410. These are just some studies of her I've been doing, and also some experimentation with her clothing and hair. I haven't chosen an exact design yet.

Comments and faves are appreciated! I'd love to hear what you think, and your suggestions on what I should improve/change. Thank you! :D

As soon as I saw this I thought 'steam punk.. awesome!'
she seems pretty cool, love the expressions and poses. I wanna know more about her!
Hehe.. Thank you! Glad you like 'em! Yes you will soon! I'm still trying to develop the story more with my sister, if enough people are interested, I might consider doing an online comic for it. :D

Ooh! I like all your poses very much. That's something I've been trying to work on more as of late, and I tip my hat to you for excelling so much at it. :) It's funny, I've also been working on a steampunk/scifi story too, hoping to make a comic. Anyway, awesome sketchdump! Keep at it!
Thank you! Glad you think so. :D
I know I said steampunk/sci-fi, but as of late, I'm not really sure if it's really in that genre anymore. It might just change to only sci-fi, more of a Dystopian future kind of thing. Not really sure yet. I wish I can develop the story more with my sister, but she's extremely busy right now. Anyway, if enough people are interested with the story, I might consider making an online comic for it.
As for your story, I'd love to give it a look! :D

Ooh, dystopian future is cool too! I think my story is more of a regular futuristic with some steampunk influences, not quiiite full-scale steampunk due to the existence of things like electricity and zippers. XD
And oh my goodness, I had no idea you'd be interested in it! *blushes* Okay, weeell, I've posted a sketchdump of a few of the characters here: [link] The basics of the plot is that this little hacker kid named Wick lives on the streets making a living by using his skills as a form of thievery, until he's found by a (rather unusual) family who apparently mistakes him for their long lost little brother and he kind of gets sucked into the family and has to decide what to do about it.
This story, like yours, is kind of on hold at the moment though. My co-writer/co-illustrater's been quite busy too, so I've been working on other stuff as of late. Good luck with yours though, you certainly have my interest!
