Picture This
By *Tyshea and *Ai-Bee
A collection of short stories about love between girls.



WOW, HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY PT!

I know it's a little late, but things have been really busy lately, and we just whipped this up over the weekend, yikes! Hope you guys like it though :)
It's so nice to see them all together like this again, haha...and they've all changed so much since last we saw em, huh?
CRAZY CHARACTER DEVELOPMENTS, BATMAN



We really wanted to talk about and incorporate two tumblr asks we got recently, which were:
"Which of the girls has changed the most since you announced the project and how? Who's changed the least? Why do you think this is?"
and
"What kind of flowers do you think represent the girls?"

On my side (side B), flowers and changes:

:bulletyellow:Sam: has gotten much more innocent and youthful. She used to be really broody and even a little sarcastic, more fake and surrounded by her own masks. She's a lot more well-meaning, still two-faced and dishonest because of her situations, but it's "white lies" now (because she can't help but be the good guy for everyone). It still bites her in the butt, but she's become a total boy-scout LOL (I think the superman comparisons effected that decision..oops).
- Visually, she's gotten a lot more focus on her legs. All my anatomy used to be really same-y and generally thin, and while Sam is still kind of on the skinny side, I've become a lot more comfortable with her musculature and body type. I really wanted her to look more athletic, especially in her lower body, and it's definitely coming along!
- Her flower is the sunflower. She's generally sun-themed, so it might be expected, but I really like them for their simple but memorable appearance. They're more cute than pretty, and not overly elegant, so there's a sense of androgyny to it. And sunflower seeds are healthy and Sam would totally love them LOL

:bulletgreen:Jay: HAS BECOME A BIT LESS STUPID LOL. She used to be too much of a joke character, but she's matured a lot. Don't get me wrong, she's still really positive and hilarious, which I love, because Allah knows I need some more uppity characters. But since developing Jay's family and friends, I feel like she's become more well-rounded and real.
- I used to be scared to make her too buff, because you know...gender expectations for girls, but I recently decided to say "fuck that" and make her unabashedly muscular (for a high school student), and her lack of height is more noticeable now because of it! I love it. I've also pushed her Greek features more, like her nose bridge (it's more hooked now) and her curlier hair. I remember someone mentioning that we didn't have any curly hair in our mains, so I fixed it!
- I don't know why the Marigold stuck out to me so much, maybe because it's so attention grabbing. They kinda look like fireworks to me, so it's like an explosion in flower form LOL. If that's not totally Jay, I don't know what is.

:bulletred:Gale: she's actually become a little more goofy, haha! Still a suave fucker, but I think more people are attracted to playboys who are a little funny and down-to-earth, willing to make fun of themselves. I wouldn't say Gale ever had a macho-complex, but I've started to push the fact that she's actually kind of a coward and would avoid confrontations if she can help it. Idk, it might be a turnoff for a lot of girls, but I think it's really endearing.
- She hasn't changed much visually, but I did make the conscious decision to give her more of a chest! I know plenty of punky girls who still pull off the look with an obvious chest... and both Sam and Jay are pretty flat, so it evens out a little. Shame you can't really see it in this picture, but in one of my doodles of her earlier this year, you can definitely see it. IT'S A SMALL THING BUT IT MAKES ME PROUD
- Other than the red, the poinsettia stuck out to me for the quirkiness, and like Sam's flower, there's a sense of androgyny about it because they look more like leaves than flowers. ...They also look like stars, which might have effected my decision. Also also they originate in Mexico. It's just too perfect dammit.

:bulletorange:Su-Mi: has become more grounded. She used to be too flighty and head-in-the-clouds/dreamy... I think I've translated that into more of her unconventional and philosophical mentality. And sarcasm, she's become really sarcastic HAHAHA. I think it's the hipster thing, but I like it. I'm still trying to figure out how she ticks 100%, but she's making good progress. I'm sure she'll be ready when her and Mona's story comes around.
- Like Gale, she' hasn't changed much visually. I think the more important thing is how I've started to approach her when I draw. She's become more increasingly feminine, thicker eyelashes, more pronounced lips, posture more elegant, all that jazz. I look forward to seeing how she grows in the future
- Orchids have always been a theme for Su, she's even got them as tattoos! I think I like them for their elegance but really weird anatomy. There's a weird kind of beauty to them. One of my personal favorite flowers too, so that might be effecting my decision making skills BUT OH WELL

Be sure to support it in Bee's gallery too! Since it was a 50/50 collab :D
(also you get to read her thoughts on the Side A girls!)



I'll reply to all my messages and emails soon, sorry for everyone waiting!

I thought I saw a different version of this drawing somewhere on deviantArt once; where all the couples were in the rectangles, not each character by themselves. I'm not exactly sure, though > . <

Hihi! I was just curious, what personal pronouns do they use? Do all of them identify as female?? (Sorry is that an offensive question?)

Not an offensive question at all :)
They all use female pronouns, though Jay and Jess both respond to male ones too

I ALWAYS FEEL A LITTLE BIT BETTER ABOUT THE FURIES TAKING FOREVER WHEN I SEE YOU GUYS SLOWLY TRUCKING AT PT. A lot of advice I get about webcomics is to just DO IT but the Furies is like a BABY and that verse between me and Maggie is so damn precious so like. YOU GUYS REALLY TRYING TO TAKE YOUR TIME WITH PT IS ACTUALLY REALLY ENCOURAGING BECAUSE IT'S NOT JUST A RACE TO GET A WEBCOMIC OUT AND IT'S OKAY TO TAKE A WHILE TRYING TO MAKE IT WHAT YOU WANT SO THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY.

Now on to the - ya know, actually picture. THIS IS REALLY GREAT, you both make me so happy with how you work together (the whole YOUR STYLES COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER thing) and this just proves it more. I really like when you pick things for the characters like their flower of representation or I think you did candies one time and then you did accessories. It's always really fun to get more insight to the characters and the discovery for you two as artists must be really cool too because it's like you're getting to know people when you have to sit there and think WHAT FLOWER WOULD MATCH WHO FOR WHY.

ANYWAYS I THINK MY FAVORITES ARE SAM AND MONA BECAUSE UGH CAN YOU GUYS BE ANY MORE PRESHU??? Also I was not expecting that kind of adorable from Jay and it makes me shriek really loudly. No but really I'm kind of stuck on Mona and her curves and her loveliness and ugisdjlaskdf;llasdlgf/

ANYWAYS I LOVE THIS, I'M LEAVING YOU BOTH THIS COMMENT BECAUSE YOU BOTH NEED IT AND YEAH.

I ALWAYS WORRY WE'RE TAKING TOO LONG AND I SEE THAT ADVICE TOO, AND I GET IT AND ALL, BUT I JUST DON'T THINK IT WORKS FOR EVERYONE AND JUST THANKS FOR THIS COMMENT /CRY

AUUGH YOU TOTES FEEL ME THO, it's like they're my friends and I'm getting to know them better and helping be their fashion consultant and it's a really interesting process and I love sharing and getting this kind of feedback and it's just like WAVELENGTHS EVERYWHERE IT'S GREAT.
ALSO I LOVE THAT YOU LOVE THE BLONDE SWEETHEARTS (me and Bee always joke that Sam and Mona were separated at birth)

THANK YOU MY DEAR <3333

I think I'm looking forward to Jay and Jess more now than I was before the character sketchdumps and all.  For a while, they were probably the only girls I wasn't getting much of a vibe from, but Jay's definitely coming out into her own, and admittedly she even looks less like a joke character now than before (not sure if that was intentional, but it worked anyhow :XD:). I think I'm still looking forward to Stella and Gale the most, but Jay's definitely becoming more interesting lately and hopefully Jess will follow suit when their story rolls around. =)

Somehow I always find myself reading the entire description, because every single damn time, it's so personal and insightful and you just can't help loving those girls. I personally love your little notes on the visual development, because it shows that good character development incorporates every side of writing and drawing and you (and Bee, of course) always deliver that and more!
Good luck with the girls, they're wonderful!

I love them I love them I love them!!! I can't wait for more! Sam's changes seem much more like her to me somehow, but that's just me. And I love how you guys have pushed boundaries with Jess and Jay's character designs and characters in general. But I have one major question:........ Is Jay still a Primeape? *intense puppy eyes*
Reply
:icontyshea:
Tyshea Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
JAY WILL ALWAYS BE A PRIMEAPE

HAHA, but seriously, thank you so much! I feel like Sam really fell into herself too, design and personality wise. She really needed that click, and I'm glad I didn't push her too much into an archetype she was never meant to be. :)
Happy you like Jay and Jess's redesigns too! I love how far they've both come

Sam wouldn't have been good as the typical popular sweetheart. She needed a little more to her and I'm glad she got there. Everyone comes so far as I see it, and I can't wait to learn more about them.

Keep it up!

I have to appreciate the great relationship between Su's feminine appearance and the masculine message of orchids. The word "orchid" shares the same root in Ancient Greek as "testicles". And orchids were named such because, you know, because the bulbs look like... Yeah, you get it.

I find it little ironic, which would probably please her hipster sensibilities.

Whoo I approve of bigger boobs! Or, well, I approve of all of this, but I remember a while ago being disappointed by the relative flatness of the main cast. I'm super androgynous/masculine in style and personality, and I also have super obvious large bustage. You're generally fantastic at celebrating a large variety of body types, and that's always great to see!

I can't help to like that little firecracker... seriously, why you make her so great! (and fun too)
One can see you and Bee have gone through a lot of moments while processing the story. Like every single moment given to it, it's just out of love and quality and all the process of change and redesign and everything it just show us how much energy and thought you put into this. I think the process of creating this characters and making them believable, making them... so human, it's what makes it so popular, but that comes out of you both giving nothing but the best in your designs.
I'm happy I found this project. I'm happy I found you both and all the great people who are fans and friends of you. 
and I'm happy I could see the process of creating it, so when it's done, i'll finally see how much everyone has grown alongside it. Specially you both :D

Ahhhh~ They're all looking really great so far! ;u; It's awesome to see how much has changed and how much has stayed the same with them both design and personality-wise over the past two years.

It's been quite fun watching the progress, and I look forward to seeing even more as the years go by~ Congrats, you two! <3
