The three elders by artisticTaurean The three elders by artisticTaurean
That's right, folks, three of my oldest characters. Who actually IS the oldest is a toss-up between Troie and CJ. I'd say CJ is the oldest, though. I think I was writing RKA fanfiction long before anything Sonic-related (which is where Troie is from).

Anyway. Have had this done for over a week now, but hesitated to upload it because I don't like it. I like the background. I like/want Ani's rainbow belt. I like Troie's pose. I think my problem is with CJ. Something about her is off... I think it's her eyes. Or maybe I'm just looking too closely at the whole thing because it's mine. ^^;

Their clothes... Ani's clothes are nearly identical to what she was wearing the very first time I drew her. CJ is wearing different clothes, except that shirt with the red swirl is from an old design. Troie, on the other hand, is shown in complete-revamp style. I should draw her the way I used to sometime... She's really changed. Easily the girliest character I have.

CJ's not short, the others are just tall. XD;

Ani, CJ, and Troie are mine, no yoinking.

Well. They all look downright gorgeous, if you don't mind my sayin'. ^_^ Troie, too. Troie especially, actually.

Girliest character, you say? Yeah, I notice she has a soft and happy look about her...which seems a bit different from the 100th image special, where she seemed to have a "hard-edged" and rambunctiously energetic sort of look. Same basic appearance, I know, but they give off different auras. Somewhat.

She definitely looks more like the impish character she usually is in the older pic. She's a lot softer here... She's definitely still inclined towards mischief, but she's not in that mode here, I guess. ^_^

CJ STILL drives me nuts. I still like her shirt, though. ^^;

Drives you nuts, huh? How come? (I really like her design here, myself. ^_^ I also like how she was designed in the older pic.)

I don't know... Ani and Troie look fine to me (Troie is my favorite in this drawing), but I think it's something about CJ's face that seems off to me. I'm being critical, I guess... ^^;

It's possible, but lemme take a look at 'er for a sec; see if I find anything. Note, though, that you shouldn't necessarily take my observations to heart; I'm no artist, and certainly no judge of what makes pictures look good (or characters, for that matter). Lessee here...

Is it possible it might be her eye? Her left one, the eyeball on our right; it seems just a tiny bit too large in comparison to her other one. All three characters have eyes of uneven size, but they're balanced enough to look natural, so nothing stands out about them. CJ's looks just a little bit bigger than it should. Maybe. A similar thing happened in the CJ Christmas picture.

Her head shape -- and this is particularly notable when you focus on the forehead -- is a bit broad and squat compared to the other two ladies, but maybe it's supposed to be. The spark of emotion/life essence in her eyes is also not as pronounced as the others. You can tell from the eyes alone that Troie's a spirited one, whilst Ani is calm, serene, and gently serious. (Did I mention that I love that about her in this pic? I do. :love:) Both of them appear vibrant. CJ's, by comparison, is...I want to say "artificial," but I'm worried about how harsh that'll sound. :(

I'm pretty much fishing in the dark here, so if you know what you're doing and I happen to be dead wrong, don't be afraid to tell me so. I'm just looking for something that might help. I have to really, really focus on CJ to come to the above revelations anyway, so it's not like they're noticable upon first glance.

You hit the nail on the head, though. ^_^ I think it's the shape of her head. It looks like it's thrown the whole thing off in my eyes. ^^;

Okay first of all ... the puffballs on Troie's boots? LOVE. Ahaha they look so ... puffy. CJ's outfit is wicked - I always love that shirt-and-vest look. Super job. 8O

I had to add the puffs XD Her shirt has a fringe in the sketch... but I never added it to the CG, hehe. Troie's my favorite here.

If I ever make any t-shirts, I'm making CJ's swirl and Ani's star. Just because. X3
