Leica Blizzard Ver.4
An Electric Hearts Character
In old versions she had different names as I develop her character: Enka Phoenix / Yanhua Phoenix / Aeon Xing and more. Her former color schemes are red-white-black. It has been a long way and she is now a totally different character.
Cloud was originally designed as a fox android, but as the main character is going to be an Alice, I decided to make him a rabbit.
This is Cloud’s normal form which he has his arms detached from his
main body, much like Rayman. Except Cloud’s arms can fly far away and
act as child machines rather than a pair of hands that invisibly
attached to the main body.
Cloud is a shape-shifter, such concept had been explored once in one of my old version 2 design sheet. I will give Cloud a complete set of other modes in version 4.

This small tutorial is written as online supplement to Lindsay
Cibos’s how-to-art book: Furry Furever. In the book I wrote the
character design section, covering both conventional furry character and
cyber-anthro characters. I hope my part in the book becomes helpful!
Big thanks to Lindsay for inviting me to the project!
