Weeeeell, I told my mom that I want to become a vegetarian today. I finally worked up the guts to do it. It was kind of like when I came out to her, only less difficult. She nodded and said that was okay. I told her that I got a book from a library called Vegetarianism for Teens, and she said that she'd like to read it when I was done with it. I guess she's okay with the vegetarian thing, although it was kind of hard to tell.
She just cooked lunch for my siblings and I. The meal included chicken strips. I ate the chicken, because how else am I going to get any protein until my mom buys me some tofu products and such? Mom asked me if the chicken was good while I was helping her clean up afterwards. I said it was, even though it tasted kind of funny to me.
But enough of that. On a different note, I have made three more drawings for everyone to look at! I drew them all yesterday and today. I'm on a drawing roll, I swear. :D The drawings are of three characters I just thought of yesterday. Yesterday I got an idea for a comic book, and the three characters I drew are the main characters. There's one more main character that I haven't drawn yet, but I plan to soon.
This is my main protagonist, Kassandra Caesar. She's a tomboyish lesbian with a big chip on her shoulder. She's a mama's girl, though. (Not that she'll admit it.) She absolutely loves her mother. Her mom's really spoiled her, I think.
In this drawing, I tried to draw jeans properly. I just bought a book on how to draw manga from Barnes & Noble, and it shows how to draw jeans, so I tried to draw some realistic-looking jeans. Did I do well, or is there something I need to improve?
This is Kelly Kimura, Kassandra's sidekick-ish person. She's gay too, and to be honest, she's also kind of a ditz. She's curious and always sticking her nose into things. She's also really hyper/chipper, like she's on a constant sugar high.
I don't really like how I drew her skirt in this drawing. I have no idea why. Can anyone give me some feedback on what I did wrong? (If I actually did do anything wrong, that is.)
This is my villain, Libitina. I named her after the Roman goddess of corpses, funerals, and the dead. You can find the goddess' page on Wikipedia here. It might give you a little more background on Libitina (the goddess, not the character). I think she's my favorite character so far. She's actually a pretty tragic figure. I think she's the kind of person you want to hug and make her forget all her troubles. She acts mean and bitchy all the time, especially towards Kassandra and Kelly, but she's really screwed up on the inside. I like how I did her face. I think it really shows her vulnerability when she's alone and tears off the tough mask she shows around others. I should draw a picture of her when she's around Kassandra and acting mean to her. I don't know why, but it's been forever since I've drawn an angry person.
What does everyone think about how I drew the folds on her dress? I don't know how well I did it. (I resorted to my new book on how to draw manga in order to get some tips on how to draw folds.)
Any feedback on the drawings would be appreciated! Also, if anyone on here is a vegetarian and has some tips to give me while I'm becoming one, that would be nice, too. I mean specific meat substitutes that I can buy, how to help my family get used to my becoming a vegetarian, and pretty much anything, really.
