The female character inThirsty was one of the hardest designs to nail down. The Kid rocker I thought of as SOON as I saw the photo it was based off of, but how do you turn this...
At first I was thinking - maybe its his mom and they were lost on the way to the beach? No. Older sister? Not really. Girlfriend? Too old! So what then? This is a collage of about three days worth of sketchbook exploration. The one on the far right is the design I ultimately went with - having drawn it Sunday evening just before I began production on the boards.
She went through a LOT of iterations, before ultimately settling on the rocker-chick counterpart to the kid.
Here it is in its final incarnation. She has a Gibson Les Paul, whereas the kid has a Gibson Futura.
