ray jay 2k14 character refresh by R-WOLFE ray jay 2k14 character refresh by R-WOLFE
completed ref  
ray jay yout [2014 ref] by R-WOLFE

its a new year n stuff, ive been through a lot and am still going through a lot.  ray jay holds a lot of meaning to me as a fursona because theyve been my longest held fursona.  weve been together for at least four years now. theyve changed and grown like i have, and im actually incredibly proud of how consistent its design has stayed over the years

i felt its time to refresh ray again, still holding up what makes ray jay essentially what it is, but bringing it with me still as a representative of myself as a person

this year im going to give the addition of a differing facial option, one being something more naturalistic and bird-like, but also keeping ray jay with ears as theyve always had since the beginning.  ray jay is also going to get a new hairstyle(featherstyle?) to reflect my hair irl, it looks like a quail tuft which i think is just fantastic



the sketches are arranged as the refreshed design was being developed, sketches closer to the previous design are at the top, moving down to sketches getting a more cohesive refreshed design and final full body drawing to the bottom.  these drawings were all drawn the same day tho so theyre all current

Lining up all these iterations would make for an interesting experiment. Kind of like when I paw through old sketchbooks; it's nice to see where you come from and how you've evolved and grown.

gathering older drawings over the years of this character would be a fun thing to do to see how its come along

thank you ;o;

ye i think how its gunna end up is twitter gets sketches first, or exclusively without being posted to art sites at all so its a good idea to follow that business
