Hey guys!

I'm beginning to lay out the foundations for the graphic novel (though it will take many months). The first step, I thought, was to give the characters unique, definable designs that allow a reader to easily recognize a character, while keeping them somewhat natural (no sparkledogs). Here you can post permission for me to create a design for your character. You can let me know any colors or markings you would like me to include, or just let me go crazy with it. :p For those of you that have foxes, there's not just red - there's platinum, silver, pearl, shadow, all kinds! Here you can find a color chart... my personal favorite is the Platinum Cross (: If you don't want me to mess with a design, or if you don't like one I posted, speak up! I won't be offended at all. After all, it IS your character.

I'll be posting some soon (Kendra has given me permission to do a design for Shira). Let me know what you think!

SHIRA
NANOOK

I don't really have a big roll in the story, but if you still need my character, I can get the design for you. (I just have to rethink it)

if you have a pic already I'd like to see it. if you've got a general color scheme in mind (say you want your character to be a reddish coloring, or focusing mainly around a scheme of grays) I can figure that out. Also if you want the design to be rather simple or a little more elaborate.

I don't have a specific image but I do like the structure of the American Grey Wolf and I do like the gray color scheme but I feel like it needs a little red at the tips of the hair (On his back.). Since Tazio was Originally suppose to be a pup I think a more simpler style should suffice. Is that good.

Sure! I'll see if I can make the red fit in. The template I have drawn already is for an older wolf so I'll work on sketching a new one. In the mean time, the two I have done have been posted at the top.

As small of a part my characters had, (Like what, two, maybe three pages?) I guess I have to ask; Are they going to be involved in the graphic novel?

Well then, since you're more familiar with both foxes and the world these live in, I think it would be best if you came up with the design. The only details I can come up would be some scruffy fur here and there since they were on their own for a while, maybe some nicks and cuts from fights and misadventures, and since they're twins they should probably have similar fur coloring and patterns, with a few details to tell them apart.

Other than that, the basics are that they're cubs, just old enough to be independent, but still naive and vulnerable. Ako's kinda mean, but only to be tough, while Haro's more innocent, less willing to get into a fight.

I have no idea what other info you might need, so please ask.

Do you mind if they're something other than red foxes? Technically they would be a mutation of red fox like in that color chart. xD

I'd love it if they were a different color, but I leave the choice up to you.

KT, I posted them on the front page. I chose to do cross foxes... which was probably a bad idea. The first design was horrific, so I saved it and printed it so I could throw tomatoes at it. After a bunch of designs that's what I came up with. Sorry for the genetic poses, just needed something to show the basic coloring and markings... I can add the little scratches and nicks when you decide on the design. If there's anything you want to change about it, or if you don't like the coloring at all [I know it's an either love or hate relationship xp] don't be afraid to tell me. The colors are all on one layer so it makes it easy to change anything you want.

Tri-O yours is in progress.

I hate pointing out things I don't like about something someone else drew. That being said, something strikes me as...off, about the main color, like it needs to be a bit darker or something. I can't quite put my finger on it. The only other issue I have is Haro's polka dots on his front ankles. I like the idea, but is their anything you can put there besides dots? It doesn't bother me as much as the color, and neither really bug me all that much, but I feel like something like a symbol or a bit or tribal would look better. Yes, I realize tribal designs are not found on normal foxes, but anything other than dots!


Other than those two things, I love them! It means a lot to me when a friend makes a piece of artwork that brings my characters to life.

no prob. Cross foxes tend to have a dull colored orange but there's a huge range of shades. Would you want the color as dark as Shira or not quite? Also, I'll take out the dots, haha. The fox I happened to be referencing from had speckles up its legs.

Maybe a few shades darker, but not as dark as Shira's.

I feel like I'm being overly picky, like when I spend ten minutes or so picking out a color for a car in a game.

Reposted the designs. Again, don't be afraid to be picky. Let me know if you want to have their color lean a little more toward red/orange or if you don't like the little crescents on the ankles, or if you want some little things to be switched [e.g. the black chest tuft]. They're your characters. :p

They remind me of Halloween colors...

Ooh, yes, I love that color, and the crescents. And now that you bring it up, maybe the black chest tuft would be better on Ako. (He always tends to be the darker character.)

And Halloween is my favorite time of year, maybe that influenced things a bit...

Tri-O I'll continue working on yours soon. I'm leaving for Oregon tomorrow so that's pretty much going to take up my entire weekend.

Front page has been updated with Ratri [gold] and Razi [silver], with LS5's permission of course. Sometime. :p look em over and see if there's anything you'd change about them... colors, markings, etc. I might be playing around with Ratri's coloring a bit more later, but other than that those are good for now. Tri-O I'm working on making Tziar less foxy-looking.
