Had to get these character designs done so I could send them to a friend to draw them for me. Original characters from something I will probably never actually make into a comic. You can read the full spiel about them on tumblr: [link]
I love the colors on Illo, and Lady's just got an awesome personality (no I'm serious!) as you can tell from her expression. I would TOTALLY read a comic with these two, just from looking at their designs!
Did you ever play that game "A boy and his blob"? This is like a way cooler, hotter version of that. Love the designs. I feel like I had a good read of the characters before even reading your description on tumblr. Oh and Porn with plot is the only kind I like. It's so rare, and I just don't understand it. So if you ever make this a book you'll have at least one hardcore reader.
Man, I did play that game! And now that you mention it these dudes ARE kinda similar since Illo can turn himself into weapons and armor and shit for her. Granted in my head both of those things end in fucking, and I'm pretty sure that wasn't in the original game...tho I'm sure it was Rule 34'd somewhere on the web anyway... Yeah I prefer my porn to have a plot too, I think a lot of ladies do and I think thats a lot of why BL is so popular, however a straight couple probably wouldnt appeal to the BL crowd because- boobs.
Oh man this is awesome OAO! There anatomy is divine and I love there colour palette!<3 I love her leg! I readdddd what you said about the porn and plot and if you try to put it together it's a no-go Sometimes they have to really work in order for them to be liked I guess it's like gambling when you think about it!
I REALLY like the shine on them-- it really gives them this rounded and bouncy feel. That reflects well with the colour pallet and adds some great juxtaposition with their expressions and what I'm to assume is one bad-ass scar on her neck! These characters are wonderful and really show your strength in drawing expressions.
Aw thanks bro! "Squishy" is how I'd describe both of them, her cause of her thick legs and him cause, well, he's made of slime, so I'm really happy they feel bouncy to you! Ah and yeah it is a scar on her neck She was hanged, but it didn't take.
Already saw these on tumblr, but since I couldn't comment there, I'll just say here that Illo is a major cutie and Lady seems like pretty scary lady (tho I was kind of hoping she'd had beaten the demon who took her leg with said leg...). Their story seems pretty interesting too.
Aw thanks babe. Lady's kind of a dork really, she's just like, the straight man in the story so everyone else plays off her serious-face-ness. The only way I could do their story as a comic were if it were like, a porn with plot but thats a really hard sell (no pun intended). People either want porn OR a plot, put them together and it's a no go lol.
Hey, dorks are fine too she sounds like a fan character. Ah, yeah, porn with plot sounds a bit unusual, but who knows? Maybe it'd go well :,D tho, maybe you could add them as side-characters to some other chara's story? That's what I tend to do when I don't think a character could hold their own story XD
A fan character of what? or do you mean like a Mary Sue? I think of Mary Sues as being like, kira kira pretty and popular with all the boys, but Lady's kinda a loner and the only boy that likes her is a ball of goo, does that still count?
