Post Moving ever-closer...
After the last picture, I relized I really needed to sit down and figure out how my characters compared to each other. So, I started trying to draw all 6 of my characters standing in a row. After about 4 failed attempts, due to the fact that I couldn't get proportions to work out correctly at all, I went super precise and busted out the ruler and calculator, figuring out exactly where on the page all of the tops of their heads should be, and then drew from there. After screwing up Darlos and Ricka the first time, I erased them and decided to start with Ricka instead, since I seem to have more a "feel" for what she should look like. And, it came out rather well from there on:


And there you have it. All six of those characters in perfect proportion to one another. Now with this as a reference, I think I can comfortably continue my comic.

But first! College finals. Sigh...

Post Very good, but...
I really like it J, it looks like a suspect line-up in a cop show or what not... :wink: The only thing I would worry about is the fact that Ricka and Maria are not standing up completely stright, they're legs are bent which would make a difference in real-life. However, if it works for you, cool.

Usually others have done this like so:

I'll find more example and put them up, my computer and memory of other's comics have many things floating about... :roll: :wink: :D
