Catgirl Rival Concept Art

Assets and concept work for the rival character, Katiya, in my student capstone game Mocha Magic.

Mocha Magic is a cafe-sim bartending novel in which you seek to create the "perfect drink" and in doing so make connections to the customers that come into your shop. It can be played here: https://catpawgames.itch.io/mocha-magic

Katiya is the owner of a rival cafe, whose cold elegance and strict adherance to precise recipes acts as a foil to the main character.
Her ending CG can be seen here: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/oA3Gqw

Visual Novel Sprites:
In total, there are 8 expression sheets for Katiya, the neutral and embarrassed are pictured.

Concept:
After each pass was a feedback round in which the whole team gave their thoughts on the various designs; I narrowed things down to 3 or 4 favorites, then iterated new further variations of those few designs.
