Another one for ~kiva-sama. This one's better, in my opinion.

So here's Liz (left) and Helen (right). They started out as classmates when me and ~kiva-sama thought those two up. But as their development progressed, I think we subconsciously felt Helen was becoming way dark, and Liz was becoming too ditzy. We decided to make them good friends. And then their relationship sort of deepened and... well, you know what happened.

OK, enough of the romantic crap, the next pic I submit is gonna be fun, I promise.

While you're here, check out this song. Really great stuff, listened to the guy's discography when drawing this.

Thank you!
Oh, yeah... Well, they don't have a solidly developed backstory, just snippets of various occurences in their lives. Like I mentioned in another comment, Helen's this socially awkward kid in class who spends lunch breaks sitting at the school yard, all alone and smoking a cigarette, while Liz is a fairly popular, cheerful girl with a head full of imaginary inferiorities. I never really thought about how they met, but I suppose that would help me with their development. But anyway, the turning point in their friendship was when Helen received a kitschy pink Eiffel tower keychain from Liz (who's obsessed with France and everything French), not a gift she'd have dreamed of but she holds it close to her heart, because she knows the intetion. I consider it the point where Helen starts developing romantic feelings for her. It takes a long time for Liz to do the same, but she eventually does. I created these characters with ~kiva-sama, who writes about them, but sadly only in Polish. A sort of running gag between us is to have Liz treating Helen like a boyfriend, rather than a girlfriend (which is not that hard to do, given her demeanor and looks xD).

tl;dr Interesting characters, and probably my best designs, but I wouldn't use them for animation - they'd bore you to death.

Ahhh, yeah I can see how that would be a little hard to fit together in a solid story <:
Haha I saw that pic~ Aww, that's really cute x3 Aw, shame :/ Oh well, I'll just have to keep an eye out for your pics then (:
And haha yeah I can see how that would work out xD
Ah, but Helen for her character sheet looks like she would be fun to see animated o:
