Doodle time! These two are twin sister characters that Ongaku88 created a looooong time ago. A few years back we were trying to take all of the little characters we created together to make a webcomic called Figments, but it didn’t get off the ground. In any case, I suddenly felt like doodling them, and here we are! While more or less visually identical, their personalities are pretty different. Ellie (on the right) is more quiet and sensitive, while Arienette (Ari) is outspoken, confident, and a little self important. Their dresses are monogramed with an L and R, based on childhood nicknames and running jokes about being a matching set. I’m sure Ari is sniggering over some off color joke she cracked, catching Ellie (famously) off guard.
This is my first time using watercolors aside from the ones everyone plays around with elementary school. I bought a set at the Ghibli museum, and I’ve been itching to try them out since. I’ve got a lot to learn but I like how it came out!
