I like the way you draw them as teens and the relationship timeline part of it too
Especially Helga’s look because sometimes people describe her with crazy style but I’ve also always seen her in between a tomboy and girly and I can’t picture her dying her hair etc so yeah I like how you do it lol
Aah, thank you! One of my favorite things about Helga is that she’s a mix of both. She wears pink, a dress, and a big old bow and is a giant romantic but she’ll throw down the second someone pisses her off enough, she’ll get down and dirty/play any sport, she spits and stomps and scowls, but she still chooses to look the way she does. And I like to keep that in in some way.
I see the pink and bow retiring when Arnold moves (in my timeline and as u can see in the pic, he actually ends up with it but even if he didn’t it’d still be put away), as a way to start stepping back from having him consume her entire world. She goes more towards her favorite color, which I see as purple. Not to say she won’t still wear pink occasionally but it isn’t the main color anymore.
As for dying her hair, I can see it, I’m just not sure when she’d do it, but like, I’m sure she’d try it out at least once and keep it for a bit.
