I have never forgotten about my TΛB project! I’ll finish all my commissions after the convention next weekend but from now and afterwards, I would REALLY like to focus on TΛB.
Here I just busted out a couple of concept drawings for secondary characters that revolve around Hana. Hana’s character doesn’t drive the story much since her relation is simply with one of the three main protagonists but her character arc has some pretty big potential. I have a lot of ideas running through my head for her!
The guy doesn’t have a name yet but I think I want the girl on the right to be named “Babs” or “Barbie”; some nickname for Barbara. I hope their looks and clothing can tell you a bit about them because I’m not gonna go into any more depth on this post so feel free to speculate
Unlike many of the people before me I don't that Hana looks too skinny or anorexic. I think that this painting really shows off her figure compared to Babs and the un-named guy. Yes, she does look thin but I think that this really shows off her thinner figure.
Aside from my mini rant I think that they look great! I'm exited to see more TΛB!
this is so incredibly weird. only yesterday i was thinking, "gee, it would be so much easier to have a holster instead of a traditional shoulder-purse" and then here Hana's got one, down to the hip-belt and the leg-strap. freeeeeaaaaky. O_o
Hana seems to have gone from young and slender to nearly anorexic. This picture doesn't convey as much feeling for the character as your earlier work. Perhaps that comes from trying to bring out the character of the other two. This is still excellent, but just feels a bit lacking. Sorry to not be more specific.
It's ok, I appreciate the honesty! You're not totally wrong or anything for a few reasons, one of them being Hana's not meant to be that skinny but standing next to Babs since I did reduce the legs for distinguishable body types (although I do have a character who is naturally skinny and saying she's "nearly anorexic" may be an offensive description compared to just "really skinny").
I'm really surprised that Hana isn't actually a main character As for the other girl, I have a friend Barbara who hates her name, she goes by Bobbi. Just thought I'd point it out as I feel like it suits the character
