Oh-h-h, 7th grade. ^^ Interesting, I would have guessed they were older, but now that I’ve got the information, it works this way too. Also, I love Ashlynn’s face in these panels. She seems to have a whole lot of character…it’s like pouring off of her right now. There’s something quintessentially middle/high school about her, somehow.
Yeah, drawing kids this age is tough. Ash and most of the class is 12, but Baldwin is 14. Small detail, but age difference makes more of a difference when you’re that young. 12 is right there with the start of puberty, 14 is more into it. Either way, not an easy stage to depict, even with reference.
Really glad to hear about the expressions, this is that page where I realized I knew the characters so well personality-wise I could draw the nuances in their expressions, in any situation. Now I just need to draw them enough that I don’t get really hung up when they look slightly off.
To anyone reading through the comments, the grade was changed from 7th to 8th, and Ashlynn is 13, and Baldwin 15 now.
