my aesthetic is lime being a smoothie, looking endearingly at mochi and when she notices he just winks at her and then she cant look him in the eye for the next 2 days
also bouncing off the last ask, taffys name being after saltwater taffy is a lil nod to the fact that later on he essentially becomes a part of mochis family..,.
oh yeah!!! (i just refer to them as the main cast djksnj) but yeah all their families share a name theme!!! (thats not necessarily related to their design) but yes the first four (mochi, lime, coco, taffy) were named after food!!!! but after a while i shifted the pattern a bit, so now each family has a name theme!!
cocos full name is coconut chai!! her little cousins are sencha and matcha, so her family is named after tea!!
limes family named after food, and mochis family obviously after desserts/sweets
oscars full name is oscar doryman!! his brothers are pike (older) and i wanna name the younger one guppy but i might feel bad about it LOL so his family is named after fish!! (technically oscar is kind of a food.,..ive read you CAN eat oscars even though theyre mostly kept as pets apparently) good catch though!!!
OOH IF HE JUST WENT FULL CLAUDE!!!! 😭😭😭😭😭
aaa thats super cute actually!!!!! i was thinking of doing something with a braid since i really also like her side-braid hairstyle!!! and adding the flowers would be adorable!!!! ;;A;;
(jkdkd it really is though.,..im torn if i should even give them timeskip designs or just leave them as-is..,,,)
what stresses me out is…..timeskip designs…….because i know its a good opportunity to use any alternate designs and it would be cool to see the kids change as they grow, but im so ATTACHED to how they look now i …,,dont wanna change them.,…for the timeskip…
AA ASHUJDKF THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!! UWAAAA I LOVE GETTING MESSAGES LIKE THESE!!!!!!!!!!! 😭😭😭😭😭 i was actually motivated and inspired by another artists ocs so im glad i can be that for you!!!!!!!! (also thats super cute LEMON!!!!!! )
HE REALLY DOES!!!!!!!! and yes!!! i really REALLY love taffy and mochis friendship..,,.
but in the meantime hes gonna be a good half-villan half-anti-hero character. theres actually gonna be an episode (or two??) where he has to team up with mochi to go save coco LMFAOOHFD. (THEY HATE EACH OTHER)
AAAA THAT WOULD BE SO CUTE ACTUALLY!!!!!!!! but i think taffy is fairly out of touch with the real world when hes first introduced, and i see him playing animal crossing after coco (or the rest of the gang) introduces him to it!!!
BUT i DO have a scene where shes humming SOMETHING, sitting on the doorstep looking out at the ocean, and when he asks her why shes humming/singing (or tells her to shut up) she replies something like “Theres a 50/50 chance im gonna die in this old shack, so im gonna do what i want. bite me.” and keeps doing it, but her voice is kind of pretty, and its a nice song, so he sits on the doorstep too (a bit away from her) and just listens. soft moment
im starting the taffy support squad who wants to join,,
YEAH…,….out of all the characters, taffys life sucks the most.,,..
basically, taffys story is that he’s cursed with water magic, but the curse is latched in his lungs, so his lungs are slowly filling with water that he coughs up periodically like TB..,.
eventually, the curse will drown him, and the only way to kill the magic is to kill the cat witch, so he’s after her to save his own life!!!!
WRONG ur #4.,……because #3….is me…(waves coco flag)
oh myg dojf i…i was about to list them, but as i was going through it i couldnt decide. i just love ALL the outfits i draw her in. THEYRE ALL CUTE AND I WISH I OWNED THEM
yeah!!! hes has the most issues. stuff like his toxic obsession with killing mochi (and refusing to listen to reason regarding it), his general paranoia and distrust of everyone he meets, being unable to understand/process a lot of emotions besides anger, his feeling of not belonging anywhere, or not deserving to be happy (even after everything is done and forgiven), his caution to physical contact (since all hes ever known from it is pain)
and then on his ability side, his magic is very chaotic, disorganized, sloppy, and hindered, because he never had anyone to properly teach him
on a funnier note, his social awkwardness, and on a softer note, he tends to latch too heavily onto those who manage to get close because hes never known friendship or kindness before
complete with those shoulder tassel things, a fake sword and a lil crown 👀💦
