Portway and Allgreen Crossing. by Muckamuck Portway and Allgreen Crossing. by Muckamuck
Wow, it's been 8 months since my last uploaded drawing. I finished this one last night, with an actual background to my surprise.

from left to right: Gedin Uesugi, Beetle Gray, (unnamed dog), Hitomi Bukimina, Hanada Kurosawa, Doburo Waltz (front), Soma Kurosawa (back), Hester Chodai (close-up)

Looking back on this, the overall character designs have really matured over the past 3 or 4 years. While I haven't gotten around to completing the first actual chapter of the story, I've been working on fleshing out their designs, their personalities, their psychological and sociological aspects, and more. In its simplicity is a feeling grounded in the retrospective.

Gedin Uesugi - He's gotten bulkier physically as a character, but not much has changed. His overall friendship with Beetle has gotten stronger.
Beetle Gray - I've made him older, but he still holds a rather optimistic, almost childish outlook on the world, and I've fleshed out his change in point of view as the story goes.
Hitomi Bukimina - I realized her older design comes off as very stupid and childish, which became evident the moment she spoke at all. My first thought was to make her stronger, more individual, and more experienced. So now she's been around the world and back, and she no longer has a pirate crew or ship behind her.
Hanada Kurosawa - Hanada's grown from an angst-filled, angry kid to a more calm, collected, and light-hearted swordsman, still balancing out the trio between him, Beetle, and Hitomi. I also thought about the feasibility of his original background, and now I'm working to change it.
Hester Chodai - He evolved from an introverted mad scientist to a cool, stylish, and witty skateboarding researcher and inventor. His initial design had a bad case of "fish lips;" hopefully, I've toned this down and focused on his teeth instead.

I feel there's been much improvement since this deviation: [link] (with the exception of Gedin, Doburo, Soma, and Hester)
