Character design of some families in my comic.
I absolutely love designing families!! It’s fun to create characters out of a few basic prompts (family resemblances), while keeping them individual. How I do it is that I start with the base character, identify their features, and remix them in various ways for their relatives
(for the deCordobas, I started with Zeynel, who has eyelids that curve downwards, and a generally sensual (romantic?) look. Then I designed his parents - Efraim is the one with the downwards eyelids,the long face, and… well, he’s his son’s father. Zeyneb is the one who provided the dark eyes and the sensuality. Once I figured them out it’s easier to design the siblings, and move backwards to the previous generation.)
Anyway genetics is fun and wild.
Here are everyone’s silhouettes since I am a sucker for that kind of thing
