Dia de los Muertos Character Design

Here is a sketch I did to help with some costume and character design.  It was really fun putting it all together in the flesh and I made the can can skirt from scratch which I’m super chuffed with.  I started with a square bit of fabric and made a circle skirt thus discovering that ‘three’ can sod off: it seems pi is the magic number.  I was a little upset that despite following a love of art and creative activites, math still has to wangle its way in somewhere.  But despite treacherous navigation of school math, I produced a fully functioning can can skirt, yay!
