Probably some of the most popular pictures in my gallery are my designs for Ego Trip Dexter's Lab characters - and drawing characters in a different timeline (grown up, teens, etc.) is fun because I like trying to incorporate the original design to still fit my purposes - so it's recognizably "X" character but it's also a believable older character.
So anyway I was wanting to ask your advice, when designing older characters, what aspects do you think should stay most? Hairstyles, hair color or (especially) clothing colors (since characters are designed to be recognizable based on a certain color palette, but sometimes that's too immature for an older character)? I'd just kind of like to hear your thoughts on this although I admit I'm not sure if this journal makes much sense. XD
Anyway, please comment!
