Designing a New Character - ANGEL by simpleCOMICS Designing a New Character - ANGEL by simpleCOMICS
Please forgive all the typos. This is what happens when I don't proof it before posting. I'm a typo-maniac on the first draft.

I mentioned in the artist comments of an earlier comic in "An Aquarius Thanksgiving" about the fact that I had a lot of trouble designing this particular character. Well today, the 20th person asked me to see the other designs so I decided to give the people what they want. (Although I'm surprised. I didn't think you guys cared about the behind-the-scenes stuff.)

I actually had about fifty different variations, but these are the highlights of the process I went through.

And yes, Angel will be a new main character in December.

Interesting to see how one of your circles comes together - much more difficult than most people would think, too! Nice work. :thumbsup:

Most of them aren't this difficult actually. It's because I needed her to be "attractive" is why this particular character was so hard. Most of the time I get one I like in four steps or less.

I really like Angel's design :) I'm also glad she isn't a Zoe/Belle recolor...

Huh. I know you don't have much trouble with character designs, but it's nice to see how you came up with this one. Kind of like a look inside your mind. Very cool. ^_^

Wow, it took me a while to come to my current design for Dan, too. (By a while, I mean at least five years. :XD:)

Yeah, it's not always as straight-forward as a circle with two eyes. Although, Angel was the most difficulty I ever had.

It normally isn't, but I wanted this character be obviously pretty from the first glance and that was tricky without designing a normal human being.
