So I got tired of writing. I am flighty this way. So I instead decided to work on the picture of the adventuring group I started drawing, um, three visits to Carmen ago? She was still living at her old place anyway...

Whatevs, my inability to draw a picture in under two years is not what's being discussed anyway. Line art finally done and inked and scanned and converted to RGB and everything!

I am sort of finished with the flat colors. Finished, as in only Athena's earring hasn't got any color to it, but you will not notice. Sort of, as in hey, poll the audience time. Some color choices are up for change. Such as, like, all of Athena. Because I have no idea what her color scheme is. And Crunch. Because I just used the same colors I did as the last picture of him. (Except with a shirt this time. Classy.) Carmen can suggest colors for herself, but maybe I shouldn't do that because she will be silly and say her knee patch should be magenta. So maybe everyone but Carmen should suggest colors instead. (Unless you will also say magenta, in which case you are vetoed as well.)

Ignore the gradient background. I didn't want it to be solid and slapped something on just for you guys.

How about polka dots, then? :D

You can't go wrong with greens, browns, and greys for Carmen. Maybe grey for those Boots of Spiderclimb? Though for a splash of color I think I did always pretend her belt was sky-blue.

Polka dots are a no-no. Every time.

I'll have to test out dark green for her jacket. (I like the brown shirt too much.) I possibly Homestuck themed the spider boots. Sigh. I will go looking up spiders and finding more exciting colors for them. (Long story short, the spider-themed girl in HS has dark blue for her color of choice.)

Also, Lee pointed out lack of braid. It's not so much as I forgot it, as I figured I got tired of continually redrawing it trying to get it to look right. So now there is tiny portion of braid to wonder at. (I suppose it wouldn't look as funny if I didn't draw people with my hair- ie. super thick.)

Green jacket work better for you?

I figured that the braid was just hidden, no worries. :)

And I am well pleased with the green jacket. And the boots are great now. (Sorry I didn't get back to you about Athena's boots - I just didn't know the answer. I was going to say, "go with whatever color 'fawn' means to you," but it was a second hellishly busy day at work and I clean forgot.)

The only other nigglings I would make are to say that the belt buckle should be a duller color (not to reflect light, you see), perhaps bronze; and while I don't dislike the color of the pants (it's well within Carmen's earthy color palette), Carmen would probably wear something darker, both to disguise any need to wash them, and to make it easier to hide in shadows.

But I love the whole thing anyway.

And haha, if you were looking for a way to get your thematic red ribbon/string stuff onto Carmen also, it could fit nicely as a tie for the top of the braid, nape of the neck, there.

I went even better and made it into an actual lengthy string wound about her hair. (Complete with a slip at the end with some hair peaking through.) It may not look *braidy* enough, but it looks like it's got a bit of weight to it to use as a secondary weapon. XD (The way it falls, it looks kinda herringbone braid.)

Made belt buckle a little more rust colored (though still too far into the gold spectrum to be a good orange-y rust).

Darkened the pants up some. I don't want to get the color too close to the shirt or else she'll look like she's in a jumpsuit. =/

There's something wrong with jumpsuits, I take it? >.>

Jumpsuits are prison-wear.

....I wore a purple floral-print jumpsuit in my first- or second-grade school photos.

I did also really like the rusty color of the original jacket. Perhaps that color can come back for the knee patch? Carmen's gotta have her some green somewhere, but the original jacket color is a good one too. You made good choices imo.
