Ara Janzek Redesign by jmsnooks Ara Janzek Redesign by jmsnooks
My redesign of ~neocoolstar's character Ara Janzek. You can see her original design here: [link]

Anyways, I offered to redesign the character for her so I came up with some designs that, to me, felt right based upon the descriptions she sent me, while also retaining some elements from the original design. Obviously I colored it digitally. I'm not nearly so good at digital coloring as some of my friends on DA, nor do I find it to be a time saver, but it does save money, and until I get a new scannar it's all I can do. At any rate, I plan on doing my comics in digital because it's way too draining on my markers. I guess this is practice.

Anyways ~neocoolstar, here you go, I even redesigned the weapon. I came up with two variant designs, you're welcome to use them, not use them, modify them, or mix and match them.

Fantastic! BTW, are you thinking about fashion design (without joking) ?

I've actually given it some serious thought. I think they could benifit from my designs. BTW, sorry about not commenting on your recent uploads, I'm way behind in my watch.

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this!!!! I love it so much! I'll be taking elements from each one and mixing them together I think...I'm not sure just yet. I'll figure it out as I go along.

Thank you again!!!! :icongrin--plz:

Cool, glad I could help. I probably could have come up with an infinite set of varieties but I just wanted to get an idea across. It should be interesting to see what you do with it.

Wow, she looks... between ten and fifteen years older.

Actually, I thought the top of the original design had some cool ideas in it, it was mostly the pants that were kinda boring. I think I like the pants on the one on the left more, though sandals are a pain...

Hmm, out of curiosity, were you in a hurry drawing this? It doesn't seem up to your usual standards, and I don't just mean the coloring. :/

And truthfully, I actually thought the anatomy was an improvement.

Hmm, really? I think I was just seeing the hands and feet seem a bit more awkward this time.

That could be, those are the hardest parts to draw.

Yea I suppose...

The pants were the main thing, but I wanted to get rid of the hood also.

Wow, no I wasn't actually. I haven't been feeling like my usual self too much lately though, didn't think it would spill over into my art.

Hmm... well, um, feel better, I suppose. (*Is realizing how awkward that sounds.*)
