Attempts at Designing a New Character by GingerOpal Attempts at Designing a New Character by GingerOpal
In order from the first drawings to the last. I never could find a design I thought fit the character just right, and in the end was thankful when I discovered her character was not needed in the story after all so I didn't have to finalize her look. Hooray for scratching troublesome characters out of the plot! How I wish I could say that about other difficult-to-design characters mumblegrumblewhyiscreativitysofickle.

I really admire your design process. You got some wonderful variation in there, with constant character.

Wow! I love how you showed your progress through creating a character. It's so interesting to see how she looked when you started, and then how she finally ended up looking.

Thank you! I plan to post similar (and more drastic) character designing in the future, so it's good to know it's appreciated. :D

I can't wait to see it! Also, I finally got around to reading the snippets from your story. They're fantastic! They're even better then I imagined! I love that you're writing a novel, and like I already said I can't wait to read it! I also have a story that I'm writing and plan on getting published, but I don't have everything for it in my gallery yet. You can see what I have got though in a folder titled, "Starlit Skye Story", if you like.

I had a cat named Juniper once.

True story.

Juniper is just a great name. Since I'm not using this character I'm saving the name for a main character in a different story. :D
