Over the summer, I've been brainstorming ideas for something that'll probably end up being an internet comic book/manga/whatever. Here's a couple of current designs for main characters (copy and paste URLs): http://www.freewebs.com/orangesodaonline/orangesoda.jpg http://www.freewebs.com/orangesodaonline/cherry.jpg Naturally, Orange Soda is a fictional representation of myself. And Cherry is his friend that isn't based on anyone real. I wanted a simple look, because something simple would be easy to reproduce. I also wanted to get away from the typical anime look, because everyone and their dog does that. So I opted to look like the DC animated universe. I stuck my KidsWB recording into the VCR and watched Static Shock to get some idea. Then, after trying to make the eyes look like those eyes, I thought about trying rectangle eyes. That looked cool, so I stuck with it. Other characters on the horizon will probably include: Count Spatula: vampire-starfish. Gravy monster: mindless cafeteria creature. Grape Soda: evil clone of Orange Soda. So-and-such Celebrity: Generic female celebrity. Justin Time: Son of Father Time, older brother of the New Year's baby. Is resentful of the human population because everyone thinks that making a "Just in time!" joke in his presense is funny. ACRONYM: A secret, evil organization dedicated to a purpose that I will currently not reveal.
