I am also very near to my goal of a town full of different bird characters. I am 9 for 10, with the last being a really flamboyant boy unicorn, who I am growing fond of. Might let him stay and call it a win. - Update on that... let him move to a friends town and almost got a penguin till some $%*& pig moved in onto the middle of one of my paths.
So to celebrate my almost achievement, I thought I would do a town portrait.
I sketched out the characters in groups, and then put us all together. There is actually quite a bit of interplay that happens between the residents without you even being involved. Frienships form, rumors start, they hang out at each others houses and take walks together. It's there to see, if you look.
So the groups are: Miranda, Friga and Freckles
Me, Gladys and Phoebe
Peck and Joey
And the loner types: Ken,
Julian and Avery
|Cleaned sketch in Illustrator.|
Gladys and Phoebe have been with me from the start. They are my go-to girls.
Peck is the jock in town and thinks himself all that. When Joey moved in he found a "little brother" to protect.
Ken is solid as a rock and kind of the older down to earth resident who wanders around in his own world. He lives off by himself near the campgrounds.
Julian is in his own world of gossip, glitter and glitz. He's probably where Miranda and Friga get their gossip, but spends most of his time in the town square and looking mysterious at Stonehenge where his house was.
Avery is the newest in town. I feel like he could round out the Peck and Joey friendship with his quiet and strong ways, but he also seems like a bit of a loner at the moment. He has problems talking to people so we connected right off the bat.
Maybe I will color this one day... for now... nah.
