If this ask was of a purely technical nature, the answer is that I vary, depending on what kind of picture it is. I’m not very impressed by the eyes I usually make; they mostly seem to consist of five lines or so.
The thought process for them is more important to me. That way I can at least try to get a good variation and give each character their own snowflake look. Above is a very boiled down version of what goes on in my mind when I draw the eyes. I’m more sure about some characters than others…
Alex, Martin and Aaron belongs to xhakhal The rest are mine.
I made a lot of people! Forty-seven, to be precise, and they have been flipped over and over again so if something buttons the wrong way or a logotype is mirrored, that’s why. I’m sorry. They’re all from the same world, thought different layers of it, and all are part of a project of mine and and xhakhal’s (tag “Spinal”). Three of the pictures has logotypes (mine) in the top right corner and the people on those pictures are all involved in the company in question in one way or another.
Names, from top to bottom, going from left to right (all characters in italicsbelong to xhakhal, the rest are mine) Some characters appear more than once, in different stages of their life:
#1 - Shield 1 Erik Morhenge, Francis Nowell, Alexander Roos, Tove Mochizuki, Jona Eide, Lisp (Isabela Buabueng), Khima Nikai, Nadja Dahir
#2 - Morrow Enterprises Immanuel Martínez, Nima Quriós Kahveci, Jona Eide, Aaron Whittaker, Ester Morrow, Samuel Vaughan, Tere Cairéz, Tracy Beckett, Terry Beckett
#3 - Shield 2 Adrian Kucharskij, Henry Rosenberg, Zacharias Sabelfeldt, Lisp (teenager), Aaron Whittaker, Ian Glaive
#4 - Leichter Selai Roos, Jonatan Roos, Tove Mochizuki (older), Alexander Roos Jona Eide, Lisp, Jasper Jones, Sara Ward
#5 - Various Sky Jasper Jones, Elizabeth Abravanel, Toya Mochizuki, Samir Gallamore Khelán Gallamore Alkourashi, Jeremiah Skies, Malin Eide, Erik Morhenge, Alicia Roos
#6 - Joann Nicolas Debonlier, Mette Grip, Joann Grip, Jonathan Grip, Olivia Lewis-Grip, Liv Bialek-Grip, Cala al-Qadi
Writing their stories here would get too long. I won’t tag all characters this time, just some. No werewolves in this universe.
This comic is a follow-up to a nsfw-picture I posted on my nsfw-blog (drop me an ask if you want the url) so I can’t post it all here! It’s about not getting away unnoticed with finding time to do other things than work in utility rooms.
Martin (freckles) and Aaron (stubble) belongs to xhakhal Nima (duffel bag), Gallamore (longest hair) and Jona (omg) are mine
I’ve been very uninspired and drawing has been really difficult lately, but I managed to squeeze these somewhat lazy things out.
• First picture is Jona and Khelán, building things with straws and boxes. It’s actually pretty important business. • Second is a much younger Khelán, before she needed hearing aid, and Samir. They’re half-siblings, about twenty years apart. He’s a good brother…
