Paige’s Redesign

It’s amazing to me, as I’ve written and rewritten my manuscript, how many things have changed since that first draft. Before I’d so much as put a sentence on paper, I drew each of my characters individually so I could see their faces in my mind. But as so many other things have evolved in my manuscript through editing, my characters have changed as well. I realized that, in some ways, those early concepts didn’t necessarily capture the character I’d come to know. That being said, I’ve decided to go ahead and give them all makeovers.

First up is Paige the Genie. In overall appearance and costuming, Paige hasn’t really changed that much from her original design, except to say that I wanted to exaggerate her figure by pushing and pulling certain areas of her anatomy. Also, as I’ve begun to establish an overall “feel” in my story, I wanted an artistic style to reflect that.

I still might try to push for brighter colors, and Paige probably looks a tad older than she’s supposed to be in this picture, but I think it’s heading in the right direction. What do you think? Do you like this new design better, or are there things about the old design that you prefer? Thanks in advance for your input!

P.S. Yes, I’ve tried to mimic this pose, and no, I don’t think it’s physically possible.

  1. I’ve been re-writing as well, and it’s really strange how characters I’ve known for almost a decade have become different people. Maybe because I’ve become a different person, but they’ve changed so much more than I thought they would.

    I love Paige’s new look 🙂 Her hair is amazing!

    • Thank you! I’m so glad that you like it. It really is amazing how much characters can change, even when I tried so hard to get to know them before I started writing!

    • Thank you! I appreciate it. I like the colors too. I’ve tried to include a lot of purple because, for some reason, I think it matches the “feel” of the book.
