I originally created this design of Aphrodite in Bruce Timm’s style as a final project for my Character Design portfolio. Tonight I went back and touch it up and tried out an alternate color pallet for her dress. Below are the two new versions, I’m not sure which I like more. The lavender makes me think of royalty and sensualness, as only the very wealthy could afford the dye to make purple in ancient times. As a plus, it also contrasts with her hair really well.
I also tried the turquoise-blue hue based on the triad rule. It brings out her eyes more and makes me think of life and her vibrancy. For more detailed notes, click here in the gallery.
