Leigh and I really were looking through a binder that was filled with my old art. The stuff there dated as far back as 2000 and ended around my junior year of high school (2006) - I think that was because after that, I made sure to keep my drawings in notebooks.
Anyway, this was just ONE thing we noticed while looking through the loose papers. The most obvious joke, too. I had many OCs with the “sickle bangs”. Vemika here happens to be the oldest OC I have. She’s gone through many design changes (and three name changes…), and the one here was one of her more modern looks before I toned her down…and got rid of some excessive decorations (dem Gundam-esque, superfluous shoulderpads).
