Hello, again! It's been a while. Sort of. Not really.

I feel like I've just accomplished something. It started simply enough... a bunch of female characters from Flaky Pastry... a bunch of male characters from the same... a grid... and for each pairing, imagine what their child would look like. An interesting experiment... Thanks again to arger for her meme base, which is where I began.

I have to say, I didn't know for sure whether I would finish this, back then. When was it again? March 9th 2014! I was so not sure I would finish that I started by posting an unfinished version, then updated it progressively as I advanced...

Just finishing the initial portrait grid took nearly the rest of the month... but hey, when something is fun, you keep going :D Was that enough? OF COURSE NOT. The next phase took almost a year! Taking each of these portraits and making them into a full-body picture? Yeah. DAUNTING. But here we are.. look at them now!

The Flaky Gene: Line-up by falingard

What can I say? I love designing characters. It is the greatest thing. Better than chocolate. Now that this particular project is done, I'm gonna have to find a new one. Design more characters. But don't worry, I'll figure something out. And you're sure to see it here in the coming months. Unless I get lazy and uninspired. That happens sometimes.

I hope you guys enjoyed this crazy thing I did. I know I did! It. And enjoy it. Also.

CURIOSITY
While I appreciate "Wow!" and "Good job!" comments, I also enjoy more in-depth ones... Just for fun, why don't you answer one or some or even all of the following questions... if you have the time and inclination, of course.
Bullet; Green Which of these offspring is your favourite, or which would you like to see more of? Did that change since the portraits stage?
Bullet; Green Which do you wish had turned out differently? Or which do you just not like?
Bullet; Green Which is the most different from what you had imagined with just the portrait?
Bullet; Green Which pair(s) would you ship? :eyes:
Bullet; Green Which three would make the most interesting room mates? Y'know... like in Flaky Pastry :B
Bullet; Green Name a type of contest (Fighting Tournament, Dance-Off, Spelling Bee, etc.) and explain which of them would win. You can also talk about the runner-up, or the one in last place, etc.
Bullet; Green What other question should I suggest people discuss?

I wonder how a 3rd generation of the flaky gene would turn out...
