Creating characters is interesting.
They start with a vague idea, generally, and oh so gradually. you feel their personality, maybe even imagine how they talk. But I can’t see them except in words. “Japanese-American, brown hair, spiky because she cuts it herself, height, 151 cm., thin, maybe close to malnourished. And an attitude … ”
You get that in the Barren Areas.
I received a preliminary sketch only this morning. Golly gosh, she’s cute! Would you have expected that from the description? But I don’t want to jinx the final result.
So here is an early sketch of
a character that is not mine, ahaha.
and the final result … well, it’s like someone else said:
“This has been for me like watching my daughter being born.”
So. I’ll probably be the same.
