Wanted to basically get their clothes designs down as well as the colour range so I don't have to bounce between reference pics. Here they are ten years old with both subtle and noticeable changes. Helga is more lean, Arnold has grown just lightly, Phoebe's hair is longer and Gerald is filling out. They won't be full body in the game but I just wanted to get the ideas down and share them with you guys.
Helga's outfit is inspired from the episode 'Summer Love' with a few small tweaks. Arnold I decided to darken a bit since his role in the game is serious. Phoebe I wanted to bring out of her shell a bit while keeping her style oriental based with the baggy pants and headband and Gerald I decided to give a street-smart touch with the basketball style wife-beater and chain decorated pants and belt. Arnold's clothes are based off
's designs. Thanks for giving me permission!
Oh, and if you wanted to know what the brightly coloured substance is on their cheeks, it is called Zinc. Zinc is a popular sun screen here in Australia that comes in many neon colours. I wanted to add an Australian touch, even if it's just a little.
Again this art isn't meant to be serious. I just wanted to get my ideas down on paper.
