I recently put up a new short story
featuring April Parisotto, who I plan to make one of the recurring characters in my Ubris Arcana
series. I've posted sketches of her in the scraps folder, but now, you'll get to see her in action. So to speak.
This story is a bit of a departure for me. I wanted to create something romantic. Something cute. Something that riffed on romantic misunderstandings so prevalent in the romantic comedies. But since, at the end of the day, I'm a shipper at heart, it wasn't that
drastic of a departure.
I go a bit into design process behind April in the descriptions for the sketches I've linked to below. I would just add that,
like many Urbis Arcana
characters, April has a real-life counterpart. Well, counterparts. She's a sort of merger of two different women I knew, with a few traits from a woman I knew a bit less spliced in. It was an interesting process, trying to create a single character out of three similar, but different people. Hopefully, it worked.
As always, comments and all manner of criticsm are very much encouraged.
