The first of five character sheets for all the main characters in In the Vale, the webcomic my husband and I are currently working on the first update for. (Website should be live in the next few days with concept art and character bios and stuff like that. I'll make a journal post when it happens~) This one is really a re-do of this old one. I've been calling her Tinder for a few years now because it's her nickname in the comic (partly because of her last name and party because of her temperament), but I should start calling her Delica also, since that’s what a select few characters in the comic will call her, since they know her by her first name.
I once thought she’d dual wield short swords, but I decided against that and now she uses only one, which is named Auradaine. She’s the only member of the outrunners with an officially named weapon, which well-outranks her status. We’ll find out more about her locket and sword in the first couple issues. Her belt buckles are inspired by real findings and stuff from around the middle ages.
Thank you so so much!! Yeah, I'm a bit of a sucker for detail. xD; I told Alan this was gonna be a model sheet and he was like "Uh, you're gonna draw every single one of those little details in every page???" Haha yeaaaah, I have to tell myself I can't do that because it'll take me a month to finish one page. x_x;
SUPER Gorgeous! Your outfits are so stylish and lovely! Those boots are just fantastic! All of them! Her fancy getup is lovely! And all those details of hers!! Beautiful! Can't wait to see the ones for the other characters!
she looks like the type a girl that'd be kicking butt alotta the time (mainly cause'a all the men that'd be chasing her tail) she came out very lovely above all else, and looks like she's gonna be an interesting character with (me hopin') an interesting background.( middle desighn: love thoes boots, so cute! XD) by the way, interesting name. made me think of cinderella for a moment, too. good job!
Haha I was cruel! xD Actually, the flower isn't pictured here. It's a finding on the side of her belt where her sword hilt would hang. Haha, I included it here mainly for theme. She has trefoils (a three-leaved plant, which stands for the strawberry leaves in her case) and the flower is a cinquefoil (five-petals), which is the flower on a strawberry plant~
If you start calling her Delica, nobody will know who you're talking about! Maybe she's called Tinder as a nickname (for her temper)? Perhaps she can dual-wield sword and dagger but keeps that little trick to herself in case of emergency? Random commentary aside, I can't wait to see the comic about the adventures of these beautifully-rendered characters.
I have to rephrase my reply! lol MOST characters in the comic will refer to her as Tinder. (: But there are a select few characters who will call her by her first name because that's how they know her~ I should've said that I need to start referring to her as Delica (as well as Tinder) so that people will know that Tinder is a nickname!
Yeah, that's why Tinder is her nickname, because of her attitude. And her last name, since she's in the military and being referred to by your last name is quite normal. But she will be primarily called Delica, so I'll need to start calling her that. And we've actually got her weapons all planned out now. x) Thanks for being interested! Hope the comic won't disappoint!
