Design a Character // Day 1

day1_01

A few months ago, I wrote down this idea for a comic:

Girl reluctantly gets job at a pet shop. She’s not a fan of animals (for one thing she’s allergic) but she needs the money and doesn’t have any other employment options at the moment. Work is boring, so she amuses herself by observing the regular customers that come into the shop and imagining what kind of lives they lead.

LOL. What was I even thinking? Anyway, I’m using this challenge to flesh out that main character. I still haven’t decided on her final appearance, but I know that I want her to have red hair and freckles. I’m also trying to work with a square-ish jawline because I’m trying to draw characters with more variation.

She doesn’t have a name yet. As for personality, she’s pragmatic and kind of cynical. Most of the time she has an “I’m-so-done-with-everyone-else’s-shenanigans” expression.
