I just now realize that Lillian's nose was way smaller than the "final design" (is there such a thing).
Ah, the reluctance/laziness of making female faces diverse, it's a virus contaminating many of us artists, even today. Just look at disney's female characters and you'll see where I'm getting at. Though it's not just them that have fallen to the big-eyes small-nose oval-face virus!
Not that there's anything wrong with that per say, but there's just soooo muuuch of it already. The more I grow as an artist, the more I relish in different body types and faces! It's such an extra-ordinary treasure, to have that chance at diversity at your disposal, it seems a waste not to use it! Thick necks, square jaws, big noses, shaved head, just mix it all up and give me characters that feel unique and alive! Though it did take me a few years before realizing that myself.
Anyway. Roomie and Lillian, ahem, yes. I wonder if Roomie would have continued apologizing for other things if Lillian hadn't ~gently~ stopped her in her track?
