I don't want to be another Piro. Or the next Poe. Or a new Tycho or Gabe. I want to be the first Jenni. I want to have my own, recognizable style. I want to have people trying to be the next me. I want them to love my characters and empathize with them as much as I do.. which means I want my audience to suffer, but that's another story. While I'm at it, I'd also like a pony.
Michael is complaining (loudly) that I'm drawing Kaen too girly.
Michael, dear... have you seen the majority of the men I draw? Many would think they're women... Even the ones with short hair are disturbingly pretty. I've tried to get away from this, but it's difficult. Very, very difficult. *sigh*
A lot of it is merely in the translation of the character... Michael has a very hard, sketchy, angular style to his drawings.. and I can't draw a straight line to save my life. all my lines are curvy and flowy - which tends to lend itself to the characters also being curvy and flowy. Kaen is suppoesd to be good-looking, but not pretty. >_< problem is, with me, it tends to be one and the same... urk!
