Alexa + Colette WIP by Pyrosity Alexa + Colette WIP by Pyrosity
Alexa and her sister, Colette.

Sort of considering making a few small changes to Alexa's markings to make them a bit more interesting. Very much undecided on the particulars for her, but I think I like how Colette's coming along so far.

All a work in progress in any case

At some point not too long ago I decided she should have an older sister. Someone left for her to share a familial connection with whom she actually had time to bond with (she has at least some extended family still living—after her hometown was razed, she lived with her Aunts for awhile but they weren't especially close to her) and serve as a contrast to how hard her life has been—a more stable, confident character. She'll be more suited to filling out some of the plot of Alexa's story that I have laid out (albeit roughly) than some other characters I had sort of just squeezed in there. As well, if I start the story with their meeting (still undecided on that) they will have the chance to convey some natural exposition, as they've been separated for many years since.


Also it gave me a chance to have fun designing a new character. They were born to different mothers, but they share a father—so there is both some genetic heritage and some separation. To that end, I gave Colette here some distinct Hyedi influences (specifically from the Hyet, which are Hyedi who share a lot of visual similarity with African Painted Wolves).

Looking at their designs makes me think that Alexa is a bit insecure, whether its about her body or something else entirely. She gives off that kind of vibe when I look at this, while Colette gives off a sort of more outgoing aura.

I'm glad to see that come across in their body language; Alexa definitely has some issues with insecurity with her body and otherwise, while Colette is a much more confident individual. It echoes the differences in how they were both raised and the lives they've lived separate from each other.

She looks just fine to me.  Honestly, girls and their self image these days, but I confess for a while, I myself was insecure with my body until I like, lost 50lbs in two years; again, she looks just fine.  Both look great, and I hope to see more of them in the future.  How old are they if you don't mind me asking?

She's mostly self-conscious of her fur; her markings and coloration are unusual for most other Reiden and there's a specific social stigma surrounding those with white-furred forearms, so for a long time she tries to cover them up. Eventually she gains the confidence to not have to worry about it though.


Alexa here is in her early 20s, while Colette would be in her late 20s.
