i aimed to make a drawing like the group shots where most or all of the characters are some color other than white. i tried to capture how they can’t laugh or have fun properly.
dave is obligatorily black with a yellow poof on his head. he has a weird bulging nose to imitate avoiding drawing natural black features like a broad nose and big lips. jade is just nondescript brown with frazzled hair and a big body and the also obligatory leg hair. rose is the one who looks the most white to play off of how the races of the pairs of siblings aren’t properly matched. shes probably some made up middle-east race. shes jumping or leaning up to jade. john is asian yellow.
improvement could be that the heights arent clear enough. dave is supposed to be tiny and jade is fairly huge, and the other two about normal, but that probably doesnt come off well enough. but i didnt want jade to tower over the others. i think i had about the right amount of diverse elements. ill do a few more passes to improve the lines and shade perhaps
