Character Variety Meme by Altalamatox Character Variety Meme by Altalamatox
Edit: Did this again with my younger female leads.

Oh maaan, I had such hopes for catching up on dA stuff and then I spent last night puking up EVERYTHING IN MY SCRAWNY LITTLE BODY and haven't quite recovered. I hope you never have to throw up blackberries. Very unfun. Colorful, though. [/too much information]

SO THIS MEME.

Oh my god, first of all, if you have OCs and any time to spare DO TRY THIS MEME. I highly recommend it, a very good way to get character similarities and differences down and organized and just feels like a nice 'do you even know your own characters' challenge. (Thank you =Fyuvix for the excellent meme!)

That aside, I've always gotten a fair amount of criticism my characters look too similar. I'd like to say now that I hate you people that have told me so but THANK YOU for doing it and for pissing me off and making me drive their designs apart. It is so much more rewarding to see variety in your cast than a bunch of comfort-zone clones. I could obviously push them much farther, maybe one day I'll relax into a more cartoony style and do wild and crazy things to them, but for now I kind of like where they are. I feel like I can be less neurotic about their designs after having done this and proven to myself they're not just accessorized clones.

I'm not gonna do tags but I'd be very interested to see some of my friends give this a try with their peeps!

OMIGOSH I love Morgan so much XD.
Seriously though, not to sound creepy, but I've been going through your gallery for like, the past couple of hours. And it is amazing. Your characters seem really well characterized, and your art style is just plain wonderful! And Morgan, he/it is amazing. Ridiculously over-the-top and yet not un-relatable, and just SO much fun to see!
Okay, mini-fan-girl-ism over. :)

If your characters ever ever even vaguely looked too similar, I'd just like to say that what first attracted me to your gallery was when I saw a thumbnail of your sketch dumps and I was immediately caught by how many different silhouettes there were. I love the way you draw your OC's and I now especially like Morgan haha! He makes me smile. He's so rebellious here.

Just from this, I think I like Morgan best. But I'd probably feel the same way even if I knew more about them all.XD
