This was the second concept I drew.  This wasn’t Ishar, not yet, anyway.  Following the original concept, I tried to keep the big chest and oddly skinny waist, but I dropped the waist shortly after because it looked like she would snap in half if she tried to move.  Of the three faces I drew, the one on the left was appealing to me – I drew her several times more and she eventually became the acolyte Ishar.  The one on the right popped up a couple more times as well; she eventually became Lai.  The one on the top never showed up again.

The little skyborne concepts over to the side show my original idea that the male and female skyborne looked different.  I dropped that pretty quickly though.
