Failed Camicazi by Cafcow Failed Camicazi by Cafcow
I didn't like how this was turning out, I didn't even finish with all the details. ]XD;;

This was an attempt of trying to craw Camicazi from the How to Train Your Dragon book series.

In the books she's from a tribe called the Bog-Burglars, so I wanted to look like she carried a lot of stuff around (hence all the belts). She's a good sword fighter, so I gave her a sword and I also gave her a dagger. She also has a bad for carried stuff around, and some sort of animal tail hanging off her belt (Why? I don't know).
I hate her outfit, I just could not come up with anything good. >]: |

I know in the books she has blond hair, but since Ruffnut and Astrid both have blond hair I thought to make her's brown. I then stumbled onto some article talking about how blond what the preferred color back then and that girls that had darker color hair would some times bleach it to make it light. So that's what I decided to do, she had darker hair, but used whatever to make it lighter.
In the picture it also looked like her hair was brushed back, like she pushes it back to keep it out of her face all the time, so that's what I tried to get across here.
The picture also showed her wearing jewelry, I figured since she was a burger and quite pleased with herself I figured she'd wear it to flaunt her prizes.

Again, I really don't like this, but I thought I would post it anyhow since I said I would yesterday.

I'm currently working on another version. >]:3

If you want to see more stuff like this then please comment to let me know. ]:3

Like I stated in the artist comments "I know in the books she has blond hair, but since Ruffnut and Astrid both have blond hair I thought to make her's brown. I then stumbled onto some article talking about how blond was the preferred color back then and that girls that had darker color hair would some times bleach it to make it light.

That's why she's a strawberry blond here. ]:3

Well it's because on the main HTTYD book site the picture of her shows her having blond hair. If you read the artist's note it says why I gave her strawberry blond hair. ]:3

Failed Camicazi? What the heck? This looks fine! I don't think it's a failure at all!

I especially love how you did her hair... I don't know why. I'm not a fan of the strawberry blonde, because I see her with really yellow-blonde hair, but her hair looks amazing all the same. It's so pretty and flowy. ;u; (That's not a word, I know. xDD)

And what is so wrong with that outfit? Honestly you're too hard on yourself. xDDDD

The only piece of advice/critique I'll offer is that her legs/hips don't seem to be aligned with her shoulders, thus making it look like she's standing a little bit lopsided. Other than that, this looks fantastic and I don't see why you don't like it! D:

Aw, thank you so very much!

Yeah, I don't care for the hair either, but like the Artist comments says I did it because something I read.

Eh, I just didn't care for how it came out. ]XD;;

Yeah, she was supposed to be leaning with one hip higher, bus when I cleaned it it came out looking funky and by that point I just wanted to get it done.

She looks quite older here. Maybe you should use this as part of a "Camicazi ages" art. Well, except that she's a redhead and not a blonde as the book showed.

To be honest, mine is based on your's and Kahmi-chan versions of Camicazi together. Do you think my Camicazi is a fail (I mean the update version, not the prototype)?
