I kinda suck at drawing my own characters consistently.

I have been getting better at this, and hopefully I’ll be actually good soon.

Haeh, tell me about it. Let me tell you, though, these characters are a lot more consistent than my old ones. You'd be shocked.

Isn't viewer gender confusion just the worst? I'd probably defeat it easily if I put heaps of effort in, but I'm quite averse to using tertiary female characteristics (eyelashes and such).

So yeah. I have to subscribe to this because I have no idea how this will turn out.

Well, actually I do not care all that much about viewer gender confusion. I mean, on two different occasions a friend thought Owen was a girl, and on both occasions I did get annoyed by that, but only slightly. (Both friends also happened to be female.)

On the second one, though, I told my friend I wasn’t going to change my main character’s design just because some people might think he looks like a girl. Some guys look feminine, and that’s fine.

Now, about the tertiary sexual characteristics. Although I dislike some of them a lot, I don’t mind the eyelashes one. After all, real life women do often wear makeup that is designed to make their eyelashes look longer or otherwise more, erm... eye-catching. Mascara is pretty much the most used cosmetic.

Also, I draw in a style that is heavily influenced by manga, and the use of eyelashes to differentiate female characters from male ones just happens to be one of the style conventions.

And since we’re using TV Tropes terminology, remember that Tropes Are Not Bad.

Huh, só vi teu comentário agora. A webcomic tava em hiato e eu não loguei no site esse tempo todo.

De qualquer forma, valeu!
