Character Design: Morticia Addams/Clown

My challenge for this character design class was to draw a clown with the personality of Morticia Addams. First I narrowed down traits I associate with Morticia Addams; gothic, sensual and elegant. I then imagined these traits in the form of a clown.
After talking to Justin, we discussed how to make the design more elegant and feel more like Morticia.
I tried to replicate Morticia's iconic dress using big, baggy trousers and pointed shoes, and Justin suggested having her hair swept back as above, so it was both over the top and clown-like, while still being elegant.
