I’m working on Lizzy a little still. I’m trying to get her where I want her look to be. It’s a bit closer in this strip, but I still have a little bit to go. Panel 3 is pretty close, but I still want to push her curves a little more. When I introduced her, she was a lot thinner… but as I’ve figured out what role I want her to play– adding a few pound to her design makes sense to me.
I’ve mentioned that I have wanted to add a plus sized girl to the strip… but I didn’t want her to come across as that’s just her thing. I want her to be a character first, but have a shape that’s different from Glenda, Zoey, or Lyn. If I can do that and make Lizzy even more special at the same time, that’s a win/win.
