So yeah, I'm drawing the comic and all these little tidbits about the comic pop through my head and I realize that there are somethings that I would probably never mention in the comic, but I think would be interesting to know. So this thread is for me to share some random bits of Candi info
whenever I get the urge to. Enjoy!
*All facts subject to change
(These were copied from the old NightStar thread)
-Alex's hair changes direction on a whim. It just does. No explanation for it.
-Candi wears contacts lenses. She puts on glasses every once in a while. But its rare.
-Candi's middle name is Jane.
-Candi and Jon went on 1 date in 9th grade. Although she thought about it, Candi wasn't interested in him after that. She does know, however, that Jon still likes her. She chooses to ignore it.
-Jon's had several girlfriends in high school, so he's not totally just pinning for Candi.
-Candi's original hair color was light green. But pink looked better.
-Candi's hair is naturally pink within the story context. Her mom has darker red hair and her dad had blonde hair. So its a weird mix of color theory and genetics.
-Linda got blue hair because the girl I based her on liked Disney's Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) in the blue dress at the end of the movie. I preferred her in the pink one. We argued about this for over an hour.
-I can't explain Trevor's hair. I assume its genetics too because his dad has blue-ish hair, and his mother, has brown... but, Trevor is also the kind of character who would like dying his hair like that.
I initially gave Trevor that hair because the guy I based him off of liked the idea of it.
Jon- Soap and something sweet
Jess- Cocoa Butter or Baby oil
Alex- Detergent and After-shave
Laura tends to wear things in purple. It's her thing.
Candi prefers light pastel colors. She likes green and pinks.
Jessica likes bright solid colors. Lots of red.
Linda tends to stick with the blue range.
Trevor prefers dark colors, blues, and greys.
Alex likes solid 'old' colors. Like brick reds, mustard yellows, navy blue... etc.
Jon prefer blues and greens.
I originally had another strip with this conversation written out to follow March 25, 2005 's
's strip. But I had scratched it because I wanted to move the story along faster. (This is why I need to try and make it a daily comic). But anyway, here's the missing strip's dialogue:
P1- Alex (on phone): What was that?
Candi: Jon said he'd go with me.
P2- Alex: Oh! Well then there you go. Problem fixed.
Candi (on phone): Well, yeah. But I wanted you to go...
P3. Alex: Why? You think Jon will try something?
Candi (while looking at Jon read his book): No, he wouldn't. You know that.
P4. Alex: So... then what's the big deal?
Candi: I just... you know, nevermind. It's okay. I know you need to study...
