Jiku's Reference Chart (With Color Palette) by LuckyJiku Jiku's Reference Chart (With Color Palette) by LuckyJiku
I needed to get this uploaded for a chorus ^ ^ This is my new persona reference! ^ ^ I tried to make it simple, but it was so much fun designing her! ^ ^ Hope this works for you guys! ^ ^'' 

EDIT: Her shoes are black and white tennis shoes! ^ ^ 

EDIT 2: Here are things I have added/changed:

~ Hair Clip of one side with white feathers with a swept side long bang on the other side.

~ Heart shaped Italian flag necklace

~ Bangles/Bracelets with the colors of the necklace (in order of the Italian flag) (Bracelet reference [does not need details]:…

~ Blue polka dots on orange shirt along with a music note

~ Black cargo pants with macaroni/yellow-orange pockets (Cargo pants reference:…

~ Black and white shoes with orange shoelaces (Shoes reference:… [No branddddd please~])

Please tell me if the links do not work~ ^ ^''

"Shirt secondary" is her tank top under her shirt! ^ ^

EDIT 3: Please ignore what I said about hair colors being a blend of blue and brown. I was tired when this ref was made and I meant to say that the hair is the same color brown but with those blue and black streaks still in them~ ^ ^'

Thank you so much for this! It really helps me see what I need to use/do xDDD because sometimes it can get confusing and people end up not liking the results! (Oh and this is Sho, the artist in charge :3)  It looks good btw, the drawing! Keep it up! <3

Oh thanks! ^ ^ <3 And no problem! I had a lot of groups that needed this so I felt it needed to be made! ^ ^'

Hey Jiku so I noticed something... >w> I've decided to do simplified everything and now i'm only doing fancy chibis for everyone (mostly due to deadline and not enough time) And I've encountered this problem .-.  Everyone has this fancy outfit and your OC's a bit out of place when in line with everybody else.  So I was going to ask you if you want to change anything and send it to me or do you want to leave it up to me? ^^;; I think it might need a bit of changes though.  It doesn't have to be much only a little. Like maybe making teh jeans a bit baggy/put pockets/put pattern here and there, etc.  Something like that, same with the shirt. I'm very sorry to do this, but I really need to keep a balance in everyone //runs and hides b4 you beat me up// .-.

I just need an example of someone else's persona and then I can see what you mean.... Q ^ Q

(I am not that great of an artist.... so I don't know what more I can do to help. But I can try to do a re-do of this redone reference....)

I'm a bit out of place? Q u Q 

Just a question... does everyone have like super complex detail in their refs? Because I'm not that great of an artist and stuff so my details are minor. XD 

But, I don't know what I could change to make it look better.... Q ^ Q I mean you explained it pretty clearly.... but I just dunno what more I can do. I kept her simple because I'm kinda simple myself.... but if she's out of place, then I guess you can change it. I just need to know what changes you make so I can help a bit.

EDIT! FORGET ABOUT THE CRAP IF YOU NEED TO >w< I really feel like i'm pushing you too far and that makes me feel very bad so .-. *crawls*  I'll figure something out ^^ dw about it too much

Heyyy nooo I actually kinda liked what you did there....… << With that I mean.... Lemme just see what I can do with the advice ya gave! ^ ^'

Her necklace is the Italian flag so maybe if you did bracelets, maybe bangles... like this (but keeping the Italian flag colors [So like maybe three red, three white, three green? XD])?:…

As for the pockets, that does kinda make it pop. But only having the one set of baggy pockets kinda messes with my OCD in a way XD. Perhaps we can do something like cargo pants? Something like this perhaps?:… But having the jeans be a checkered pattern might not match very well.... Especially since orange and blue already clash as is. Perhaps maybe even doing black cargo pants might help that? Q u Q Oooor even more change, perhaps there could be orange pockets? Or white pockets. Whatever looks better~ ^ ^'' 

For her shoes, maybe we can do black and white shoes, but with orange laces if that can be possible? Perhaps something like this (just brandless? XD):…

Now I see you said the shirt looks fine.... This might not need any changing.... Maybe, however, if her shirt had like white polka dots? Or possibly even blueeeee? Kinda like this, but keeping the style of shirt she has in the ref?:…

I kinda like the blue polka dots though! ^ ^

Ahhh! And maybe she can have a clip in her hair somewhere with white feathers? I might be going too far there.... take that out if you need to XD

Sorry if the post is a bit hard to follow! ^ ^'' I just kinda typed ideas as I went. I might change her design to this thing I just typed XD

So here's the recap of her design that I have come up with (from top to bottom). I'd love to hear what you think:
~ Hair clip with feathers (opt.)
~ Italian flag in a heart on a necklace
~ Blue polka dots on the shirt (to give it a bit more of a pop.)
~ Bangles with the colors of the Italian flag (three of each color in the order of green, white, red [from top to bottom]
~ Black cargo pants (with white or orange pockets depending on what looks better [probably white])
~ Black and white tennis shoes with orange shoe laces (if possible)

And that's all~ And I'd prefer to keep the music note on her shirt even with the polka dots! ^ ^''

OOkie dokie~ I gotcha!~ <33 And don't worry I kind of tend to type as i think so so I can decode it 8)

Okay so here's what's going to happen.  (Btw I'm just doing a chibis for everyone BUT! if I have time to digitize some full body drawings,  I will include a group picture ^o^)  And I say this beforehand because sometimes, there are much less details on a chibi than a full body as we all know >w>'' Especially like the shoe laces and the details of bangles, but the color will be there though, just maybe with less details.

So here's what I'll go with (If you want to add anything at all and does not approve, just say so ^^):

~Hair Clip of one side with feathers with a swept side long bang on the other side.  ( i think it might look cool with feathers a bit and not too messy) BTw what color do you want of the feather?  White? Blue (light)? Turquoise?
~ Heart shaped Italian flag necklace (CHECKED)
~Blue polka dots on shirt along with a music note somewhere adjustable (CHECKED) <---- love that idea btw xD
~Black cargo pants with white pockets (I don't think Orange would suit BUT! it could be like a yellow orange because black and yellow just booms)
~Black tennis shoes with orange laces (CHECKED)

I think that'll be all ^O^ hope this goes well~ <3 THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS BTW!

~ The feather would definitely be white because she has blue streaks in her hair
~ Can the music note stay where it's at? * u * 
~ Can it be a macaroni yellow-orange color for her pockets? Would that look awkward? If it does, just go with white!

Hope it goes well too~ Good luck~ ^ ^

UwU I'm so sowie.  I know how you feel.  >w> I'm quite simple myself.   The most i'd do is wear wear a nicer t-shirt and better jeans lol. xDD And oh! dw about drawing another ref. for me.  you can just give me some details. And here are some examples of what i'm talking about:…,… And I've doen a few more, but they're not colored so it might be better if i showed you these two xD  They're not like SUPER COMPLEX so it should be fine, but maybe...idk UwU I just want you to stand out as much as everyone.  I'm sorry if I'm makign you uncomfortable.  If it is, just say so and I'll go with whta you gave me from the start.

Also, these are apps/forms I have received so far and maybe looking at them might help a bit?…

My suggestion honestly would be not to change much but keeping you simple and unique at the same time.  For example, you could make your jeans a checker pattern, or make it a bit of a brighter color, or just add some baggy pockets.  And for the top, what if I made the shirt a little something like this?
