Well I finally finished this today! My customer was the best and basically gave me complete freedom to do whatever I wanted. These characters are really beautiful I had so much fun with them!
Noiz is a very quiet child, sometimes too quiet, Aoba encourages him to be more lively…
SO tonight I just had to draw my oldest otp. Bobbi and Yam, I used to draw them a lot back in my oekaki days, I think I created them both around 2006? Anyway Yam (bottom) badly needed a revamp so I changed her body type a little, gave her glasses and thicker eyebrows, and made her hair a little darker. Bobbi didnt change much, but he did get a mohawk and freckles. They are kemonimimi and..yknow, VAGUELY vaguely based on a poodle (Bobbi) and a bedlington terrier, I used to draw them as Actual Dogs too but I havent done that in years and years.
Bobbi is pretty shy, I originally made him mute, and a couple years ago I made the decision having him be deaf, hes incredibly smart and easily distracted, he likes to read and research interesting topics for fun. Yam is very enthusiastic and a typical dork I guess, she likes to solve puzzles (sudoku, candy crush, etc), shes really into logic problems and likes to play video games, she doesnt like to take things too seriously and doesnt like to make plans, she prefers to do things impulsively.
Ever since I first created them their ages havent been static, I draw them at different points in their lives, but Yam is 2 years older than Bobbi.
