So this is partially a true story.
The true part: This has happened to me now and then. I realize I don’t really know what a character looks like; I make a doodle of them that doesn’t really come out how I planned; I nevertheless start imagining them the way they came out of my pen, and from then on I just go with it when I’m inserting descriptions in the story.
The false part: The specific characters I included in the comic actually did pretty much come out how I planned. :X
These guys are from my new short story “Aquarius” and I think they’re pretty damn cute. Here’s the finished drawing.
