I’m not sure if there’s a lot of Petunia in me. I try to prevent my characters from becoming too much like anyone, especially myself. Still, I think it’s impossible not to add a little of yourself into your stories and characters.
When I outlined Petunia as a character a while ago some of her defining characteristics were: motivated, loyal, and serious. I guess I would also add romantic and damaged to that list now…
I really wonder how other people interpret these characters. I don’t think I’m really pushing a lot of their traits town your throat, am I? Someone told me once that they all seem pretty normal, despite the weird stuff going on. I suppose that’s good! I want them to be relatable, but I also don’t want them to be boring. Let me know if you have any feedback.
OH, and I really want to know what people think Petunia’s eye and hair colors are. I heard one interpretation and was very surprised. I guess that can happen when a comic is in black and white.
