    Mother and Child

    Hey there.

    Was doodling a little today, trying to come up with character designs for my little pet project, my comic, and somehow ended up with this. A mother and her 8-10 year old daughter.

    Any comments and such are much appreciated, especially since I've never worked too much with children's physiques before.

    Cheers.

    Hiya there!

    This is actually quite a nice peice of work! I dont really see much of a problem with it, I mean,the line quality is great and apparent. Kudos to that!

    Though one thing I cant help but notice is how the daughter's foot looks like its UNDER the mothers, not behind. Perhaps a way to fix this would maybe move either the daugher behind more, so that only a bit more of her foot would show and that it wouldnt look like she was being stepped on, OR, you can pivot either the mother or the girl so that her feet or the mother's feet would face another way and what not to make space for either foot. OR if you would prefer change the position of hte foot...whichever.

    Also, nice character design. Im guess the little girl is a bit shy, perhaps sheltered by her mother? Her mother then perhaps would be a gentle and warm mother, almost like the "perfect mother figure"?
    Im just trying to infer from your depiction. From what I know characters should show their character's personality through appearance, in comics at least.Unless of course youre throwing in a red herring. Anyway its more of an add in, dont mind it so much if you wish not to--just my personal view. Like I said though, nice characters!

    Kudos man.

    Cheers guys. Didn't see that about the feet.. heh, poor girl. Tried to fix that without having to redo too much of it. Their feet are still pretty close, but at least not blatantly stepping on each other.

    Dished
    , you're fairly close with your interpretation. The girl is maybe not shy, more rattled by nightmares, and being comforted by her mother, who is meant to be a very strong as well as warm character.

    Thanks for taking the time.

    Still on the last drawing the front foot is still trying to hug the child's foot. It stands out of perspective me thinks :|.

    Greetz!
