Wasabi character design

While the printed book project is doing good progress, I started writing the next episode 34. It's not an easy scenario and it still require a lot of attention (but thanks to a solid proofread team, I'm also doing good progress here). The big outline of the scenario starts to appear: it will finally explore a bit more the land of Shichimi and her magic school. So, here is a screenshot while searching for how Wasabi −master of Shichimi− would look. It feels good to put back my hand on Krita after almost a full week of only pre-press work with Scribus/Imagemagick/Bash and writing in a world of Git/Markdown. I also adopted the new watercolor brushes made by Ramon Miranda built-in Krita 4.3.

I like the hair accessory and also the water color wash. Nice design.

She seems to me too young to be a master.

I made myself the exact same reflection.

But, maybe her appearance is not related to her age :)

If her story is anything like Chicory's (https://davidrevoy.com/article737), founding a school may be something of a whirlwind process at least initially.

Yes, her young eternal appearance is special. I understand this will put a lot of question on her (that was also the first question from my wife). It will be explained in future episodes (and I'll need a pack of them to flesh Wasabi correctly in all her complexity).

「わさび」 I can make sign for her school if you need it.

I love this design, and Shichimi is probably my favorite witch in the group.

How I can make this kind of background in Krita? It looks like a paper with texture. I like it very much.

Hi Andreas! Sorry for late reply, your comment was posted just one hour before the release and got eclipsed by it.
The paper texture is a simple sheet of paper I scan and put with a blending mode over a single color.
Here is a Krita file for you with the paper setting I made for this artwork, consider it public-domain:

Have fun doing art on it!
