Ty, Tyyyyy~ its V from livestream, anyway, have you drawn any new Brandon? We've seen all the girls with their new looks and various others but I was just curious about him. Also thought I'd remind you you're awesome. *Hug*
Hi V, very good question!
Ever since you asked this, I’ve been thinking about it.
Brandon needed a redesign big time, and I started by looking at different breeds of fish, specifically looking for ones that swim really fast.
Since he’s a competitive swimmer, I decided to just go with the fastest species of fish alive, the sailfish.
See the thing is, sailfish are very commonly found in the Indian Ocean, and you know what that means!
Brandon is now South Asian/Indian.
It was always in his personality to be a preppy (but smart!) surfer guy who loved Chemistry. Even though that was originally based on a white friend of mine, I also know a lot of people who go to the university where I live that fit this description who are also Desi/South Asian.
Diversity never hurt anyone, right?
Also, I always planned on his mom being a lesbian and civil rights activist, and I love seeing brown queer people represented in stories.
I know a lot of people won’t be happy with his change (a lot of them weren’t happy with the main fours’ redesigns…especially Ren lol) but that’s never stopped me, now has it? ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
ALSO I JUST LOOKED IT UP AND MERMAIDS/MERMEN FIRST APPEARED IN NEAR EASTERN MYTHOLOGY. AM I GOOD AT THIS SHIT OR WHAT

If you haven’t read SalaDay’s, when its back up I suggest you do a search for it on DA. Its currently on Hiatus but its amazing.
My character is a dragon :) I’m stoked. Her name is Torrid (Torri) and she’s sarcastic, a prankster and obsessed with Britain. I’m happy :)
omg ash is filipina now and she’s so pretty in ty’s new art style i’m gonna dieeee
and i love mint’s body type uwaaah
and doggybone so cute <3
I just love when she does saladays stuff because I remember when i first found her work and her art style was totally different but still really cool and just seeing her work and practicing helped me become better at creating diversity in body types and nationalities and i’m just getting really emotional right now.
