Growing Up Gecko

Updated 2/5/13

This project has turned out to be taking a lot longer than I had originally hoped/anticipated.  I've gone through several different cycles of thoughts and opinions on how I should handle the girls here - regarding time spans, ages, etc.  There's a bit of a disconnect between what I'd personally prefer to see portrayed in the link between growing up while transforming and the reality that if I want any chance at *possibly* making back a small portion of what I spend commissioning the art for this...I need to approach the entire thing a little differently.

That said, I do still hope to be able to "develop" these girls further as characters and subjects in the near future.  Support and feedback certainly help.

The Main Attraction:

The first pic of Mac and Meg by Solios:  Sandvich Interruptus (gotta give him all the credit for that title)


Really, as I've mentioned elsewhere - the development process with Solios is truly mind-blowing - a simple idea can turn into a life-time's worth of character development, sequential image ideas and almost anything else when working with this guy - I'm really impressed.  And his style is unquestionable!

Jacques00: Sweatin' It


I had started developing these ladies as characters at this point, but I just wanted another pic of them by another artist (non-canonical really) - and Jacques00 stuff is tight as well!  Look for more by him on this site in the future.
 
A quick pin-up shot by Izra.



Quick color shot by Balitiger23.



Two brand new reference-type pin-ups by Solios.  This is how I truly envision the "girls" looking at during the general setting of the story (most of the initial project will be a "scrapbook" format showing them growing up and transforming) - I guess I'd place them at age 23-25 in these pics.

Meg:





Mac and Meg again - basic pic.

Two pinups of the girls by Wrenzephyr2 - not a bad style.




More "standard" art of Mac and Meg by CallMePo.  I have been working on more supporting characters for the prequel, but not ready to share any of those images yet.  Need to buckle down and get the script in place....
