I identified with Gretchen as an Awkward Tall Girl so much. They all look perfect!

not to be a bother or whatnot, but i don't really see the original designs translating into what you chose to design them as.  I do see many similarities, but the recess characters were drawn in a very cartoony way that showed off some of the main features that a lot of kids would feel bad about, but then they saw a show that showed them and made it seem okay.  Most importantly Gretchen, who had buck teeth and was as thin as a pole, and TJ who was somewhat overweight, and Spinelli was super aggressive but didn't look too girly other than her lips, and Gus was this little "shrimp" looking kid and people made fun of him but he overcame it. I can understand you making a drawing of them later in their lives, but in grade school they certainly looked awkward, and for me that was the drawing point of recess, that you didn't have to look fantastic to be considered as someone who could change anything, or be a primary character so to speak. Mickey was heavy set and had a belly but here he just looks like a buff guy.  That definitely takes away from a lot of experiences that he had as a kid.  Most of these models look like expectations we already see, not like poor kids trying to show their peers that they are just as awesome as they are.  The drawings are cool, but the point is moot.

Did you miss Mikey's belly?  He's still fat in the picture.  He's just older.

Didn't you used to have backstories of the characters in the description or am I thinking of something else?
