Casey Canola Character Sheet by RedBlooper Casey Canola Character Sheet by RedBlooper
Hey guys, who's up for some original art? I've been wanting to return to drawing comics again, and finally kick-start my Catastrophe Casey comic. Before I do that, though, I want you guys to get to know my characters and their personalities a bit.

First off, here's the main protagonist of the series, Casey!

She lives with her big sister in a big coastal town (which I haven't come up with a name for, yet -_-) and is the town's "superhero", always catching criminals in the form of thieves, pirates, rouge sailors, etc. She helps keep the town peaceful with the help of her utility belt and "flying socks", which let her fly and do a couple more things which will be shown later on in the comic. It may seem like an unfair advantage to be able to fly, but most of the crooks Casey encounters are anything but ordinary: her universe is filled with weird creatures and animal/human hybrids (shark men, talking lobster sailors, goblins, etc.), and she's always up against interesting foes.

Personality-wise, she's quite impulsive, and is always getting herself in dangerous situations for not coming up with a decent plan of action. She really gets into a case when she's close to getting the crook she's looking for, but immediately becomes disillusioned and low in spirits when she arrives at a dead end or fails to catch her guy. She keeps a record of all the criminals she's caught and has a "rouge's gallery" of crooks currently at large in her room that she's constantly updating. She's a big slacker when it's a slow day for crime, but her ears prick up as soon as she hears a cry for help or the sounds of a major slug-fest coming from the pub down the road.

If you guys have any other questions about this character, feel free to ask!

Next: Casey's big sister, Marine Canola!

An original character now? Gasp! She is really cute, and your expressions and structure are good as always. I like the shape of her entire face. Your poses are something else, she has a very bendy body structure, it's fun and good to look at. Colour is also very good, I like her green eyes and darker blonde hair, it stands out and of course, is very cute. I think that cartoons are meant to be stylish but do not need a complete perfection. There's a point when cartoons are fully developed and have no truly negative qualities to their appearance, it seems you've reached this point. I hope you feel as accomplished with character design as I think you should. I'd be able to recognize your cartoons in a crowd, and I am glad you are finally making unique ideas of your own.
What do you think?

Dude, your design is baller. She's really appealing and "simple"... in a totally "less is more" sorta way! As in, she's recognizable and your art style is really noodel-y and very fun to look at.
She's really cute and the added expressions and poses really convey her character. And as far as character references go, this is really clean, easy to see, easy to read. I've seen a few ref. sheets where everything is everywhere and nothing is useful. (And what's with the short stories I see on them sometimes? I don't wanna read your dude's awful life story.)

I also love the way you used the coloured outline on her hair and belt. It keeps her looking really soft, in a way.

Rad S-curve in her standing pose, and the poses in the middle have brilliant silhouettes and read very well.


She's precious! Good stuff. c:

I really enjoy how expressive your characters are, and you have a wonderful toony style. Such is the case here with Casey. She has a very nice character design, and the tooniness (not a word) of your style gives her charm. Grand work on the individual expressions, too, as all of them are quite lively and full of character. You did a great job on the coloring and shading, as well, with a colorful mix of yellowish orange..

I have never been too keen on superhero stories and the like, truthfully. But your artwork, characters and style has certainly caught my interest. I hope to see more of this character and the comic she is in soon.

Great work!

Awwwwww, she's such a playful looking little sweetheart!

I love the design and backstory. Very polished.

Her design has a lot of little things I like; especially the black and white striped socks!

As with all your work, the poses and expressions are incredible!

Not gonna lie, I really like this and I wish I had this when I drew your commission. OH WELL. I am doing way better now, if I ever get the chance to do more artwork for/with you, that would be awesome.

And it would appear that I have gone on a tangent. OOPS.

I think you should add a few more vantage points as well. Sides and back would be cool~

There really isn't much to show of her back. This is more of a basic model sheet to show some of Casey's features. If she had additional details that you could only see if she were facing backwards, I would show them.

How do get the lines so smooth and straight?

Long, quick strokes are what help me keep my lines smooth. I also connect lines together as smooth as possible.

Plus I work at a high resolution, so any small imperfections in my linework are cleaned up when it's posted here.
