Keith Thompson: Barber's Daughter

The most alluring thing about this character is the eyes. Even from a distance, they draw you in and you notice that she is not just an innocent girl. A lot of the time the eyes tell a story, when people talk to one another we make eye contact so we are mostly drawn to that specific place. The pale skin and the darkened eyes really contrast against one another, makes the girl almost ghost like. This goes along with the story of the character: "...the barber's soul was transferred into the body of his young daughter."

The idea of a female character for me, is far more interesting. For starters, not many people would suspect a female, especially not a young girl. I find that the shape of the body flows much better with clothing and when done right, even just a plain face can be really striking.
