It's been 7 years since i created my main character Taratsu and she went through a lot of changes through all those years.
Here's a lil bit of history: When i first created Tara she was just one of many unoriginal sonic fan characters of mine and her name was Katsumi...lol
a year later i decided to join DA and i thought i need a main character for myself so i decided to pick Katsumi out of 10 or 20 of my other characters XD I choose her since she was one of my favourite characters but i also wanted to redesign her and give her the name of my other character cuz i liked the name Taratsu more
Tara went through lots of hairstyles and outfits since then
after those couple of years of being a sonic fan character i decided it's time to move on and create my own style. I redesigned Tara again so she wouldn't look like a female Knuckles ripoff and i made her a doggie since i love dogs alot. From now on i made her wear different clothes everytime i was drawing her cuz i like designing cute outfits
then there was another big change. I gave her a light yellowish - peach fur color and different markings also i made her a different type of species, she was still a dog but i made her a mountain moon dog (and no that doesn't mean she comes from the moon XD) ....and it seems i was fascinated with multiple colored hair for some reason back then XD
after that she didn't change that much just a couple of different hairstyles and maybe a more lighter fur color
and finally Tara's current design the only thing that changed was her hairstyle.
Well that's the whole thing, so far i'm not planning on redesigning her anytime soon.
I would also like to ask you guys not to give me comments like "I liked the older Tara more" that's not the reason why i made this it's just to show how much she changed through all those years please respect that
oh and no critics i know what i did wrong and i don't need it pointed out to me
I really like her current design a lot. I also like how you posted a timeline for us, showing her how she started out and where she is now. I also respect that you give her a new outift everytime you draw her. That's takes lots of creativity, and I really really think it's an awesome idea!
I always like to see things like this, a quick browse through a characters history and the changes it went through :3 IMO it shows the love and care the creator has for its character, and dedication to keep it alive~
Thats so cool to know the whole history!! I think i met and knew you by the 4th tara design! I even remember drawing her several times hhaah!! And then i drew the newer tara in human form! I miss those days <3
Heh, I remember the second version of Tara! I love the one you have now. She's too adorable! My character has undergone some vash evolutionary stages but it's not illegal. XD Mine was also from a sonic character.
and here I am, only thinking that her boobs went from normal to big to normal to average big *slappedinface*
No, really, I like this sort of things! its always nice to see character development....or in this case evolvement
She was purple at first? I never knew that still, she was indeed just your regulair sonic chara, though even you have to admit she at least stood out in the crowd.
THe second one has a pointy nose X3 otherwise, she looks fine
The third is where I started watching you I think I at least remember seeing pics of her like that in my mailbox...
I think in this pic I really like the fourth one's pose best....the thong and butt came out perfectly =3 *smackmurderkilled*
You know the last three have pretty much a lot in common, this mostly due to the fact they all have the same fur colour for starters... and the happy go lucky smile is still active till this day, which is a smile trademarked by you XD
I like it I did something like this a long time ago...perhaps I should do one again...though in my comic [link] you can also see his development
I like to see these kinds of things, it's so neat to see how a character grows over time until an Artist is content with there design. The way a character grows WITH the artist, i love it, i should do one of these haha. but i don't think i could, i have ONE chara i've had for about fiiive years now, and she hasn't changed a whole aweful lot
