Read an Excerpt

When you're working with multiple characters, it's important to create more than just a unifying visual theme, but differences as well. You don't want them to blend together to such an extent that they lose their individual personalities.
One way to do this is to vary the height of the characters. Varying the heights forces the eye to travel up and down while scanning the image, which makes the eye slow down and take more time to soak in the image. When the charactesr are all the same height, the eye tends to skim the image quickly, as one whole clump, without looking at each character individually, which is a disadvantage for the artist, who has worked hard to draw each figure.

Dear Elizabeth and Leah, XD You two are such great friends. XD I love you guys like sisters. I wish we were sisters. XD I remember the first day we met. Kiki you wanted to kill me. XD Looking back, I'm glad you didn't. XD I have noticed I use XD so much. XD Kiki you would be proud of me. I'm using proper grammar and spelling. :b XD Oh ya! I used a face in my letter. XD Athena, you never told me about Ben after the play. Poor Ben! :( I hope you gave him a good excuse for not going. XD Leelee, I was reading a foodNetwork magazine and I saw a wonderful coconut cake recipe. XD I wrote it down but I can't find the stupid paper. Oh well. XD And, "Hey Nikki! Hey hey hey Nikki! You're so fine you blow my mind." XD I'm so sorry for forgetting about you. I'm so stupid. XD You know the day that Pete was on and you two were posting lyrics to "SEXAY AND I KNOW IT"! I thought I was going to die from laughter. You two were so funny. And remember when I would do what I call the "Nikki chant" and you would go behind me and post, "Hey Nikki! You're so fine you blow my mind. Hey, Nikki. Hey hey Nikki." XD All three of you guys are my greatest bffs ever. XD I read a poem but it's too long so I picked some stanzas. "Weep not, weep not, She is not dead; She's resting in the bosom of Jesus. Heart-broken husband (dash) weep no more; Grief-stricken son (dash) weep no more; Left-lonesome daughter (dash) weep no more; She's only just gone home. Day before yesterday morning, God was looking down from his great, high heaven, Looking down on all his children, And his eye fell on Sister Caroline, Tossing on her bed of pain. And Jesus took his own hand and wiped away her tears." You guys I'm always gona be here. Kiki, I hope you and Frenchy get married in France. XD LOL! Leelee, I hop Ben will just grow a pair and ask you out. Who cares about the "no dating" policy of your youth group. :p XD And to Nikki. XD You were so as you put it HYPER HYPER HYPER. XD I hope you're ok. XD I love all of you guys and KEEP SMILING! XD I DID ALL CAPS AGAIN! XD WE ROCK! OH YA! I'm tired right now so I'm gona take a nap. You three are the best! XD LOL :) YAY! Love your FRIEND, Sara. P.S. HEY KIKI! I FORGOT! "And he walks with with me and he talks with me. And he tells me I am his own." XD Frenchy and you are so cute! XD Also tell Natsu not to give up writing songs. I love you guys! XD
