trying to design a dryad character who identifies as female but am also trying to avoid sexy tree lady tropes
oh god what do i do
Maybe it would help if you think of her as female first and a dryad second? What is her personality like? Is she out going? Withdrawn? Does she care what others think of her? What sort of society did she grow up in? Does she conform to the norms of this society? Does she resist them?
Uhhh dunno if that’s helpful but that’s my best guess, haha. Also, the twisting branches of huge oak trees like this one are really cool. Maybe you could try using shapes like that in the design?
