Unique Character Design Tips
In my opinion, these are the most important factors in any character design: color, concept, shape, simplicity, cohesiveness, repeatability, personality and uniqueness.
Color: Any design with colors all over the place creates too many places for the eye to look. Keep your color design very simple and zen. Looking at the colors shouldn't be jarring or confusing. This isn't to say only use one color, not at all, but try to make sure the ones you use are harmonious. Avoid mixing and matching different saturations of the same color or picking colors that clash with one another.
My rule of thumb: Stick to no more than three base colors and some value variations.
Concept: Your design should have inspiration, even if the inspiration is just your intended character's personality or an interesting object that represents them. Your character could be a bookworm, and that would impact her posture, her clothing, her hairstyle...pretty much everything about her! You can design

suddenly swamped and suddenly popular, courtesy of the lovely fans of HamletMachine's starfighter duo...thanks guys! <3!

of course i'm going to use this new-found popularity to introduce you all to my new love:
the grey project.
it was officially born last week.  since then, a facebook group has also been created, along with a and of course, a deviantart group!  everything is looking mighty bare, but as we get the army built up and more of the planning...planned, more will be revealed.  
if you're curious, it's like a karma army.  join me, in any or all locations (more coming as soon as i can talk people into giving me their grey project account names) and see how you can get involved.

aside from that, things are coming to a crazy apex and i have much to do.  i wanna draw so bad, but there is no time.  nanaho is leaving for japan next week.  pennigan has officially graduated kindergarten.  

i'm using precious sleeping time to write this, but the best part of all is tomorrow, i get to sleep in past 6am.  WOOT.
