Oh God I hope this was ok I swear this isn't to say anything bad about the og I just thought this would be fun.
I wanted to putz around with Doby and his design, try to keep to his character while also fitting him into the conventions I've set for proxies in my universe. I imagine he's from a different gaggle of Poor Bastards in West Virginia, which is why he's using the word cousins instead of siblings. Proxy culture n all that, different post different time.
Design was easy, I mostly just thought about keeping his outfit simple and sensible while still being visibly fun and a little flamboyant. My little brother did baseball so I kept his outfit in mind while drawing him. Cleats were a must, good for stomping! Getting to wear something other than jeans and a hoodie or jacket is a luxury for proxies and Doby is living the high life. While working on his design I started thinking about his name and character, maybe Doby is short for Doberman. His crew used to call him Rich or Cap before seeing how vicious he could get on assignments, especially when one of the others were in trouble, and started comparing him to the guard dog breed. You can tell hes in trouble bc his family will call him Doberman or Rich, and hes REALLY in trouble if anyone calls him Richard. I think he's managed to become one of the major decision makers in his family despite being a little baby man by being loud and fighty. Annoying Little Sibling: Argumentative Edition!
Doby was created by @krayolacolor! Go support the og character and his creator, he was created for and by the fandom and they've worked hard to establish this boy and deserves recognition for it!
