Okay, no matter how much I try, these links will not show up in the previous post:
 
Bobby - the blonde one
Kraysch - the concept picture, which I'm using as the reference to send people to

And again, with the last link.  What the heck is up with the forums at the moment?

That's odd.  The links work fine for me.  But, here you go:
 
Jessica Mason: http://www.thefallenangel.co.uk/highmaintenance/?id=1
 
Bobby: http://www.thefallenangel.co.uk/highmaintenance/?id=25 (the blonde one–he's the Oracle to Jessica Mason's Batman, though he is not disabled)
 
Kraysch: http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o253/Azzamacazza/Kraysch.png
 
Also, I wanted to remind people that my username is shortened to Shasta.  The B24 is separate.  It is not that I was the 24th person to take the name Shastab.  That, or call me Ave.

Gah! I hate the current posting system.  I wasn't even trying to post links, and I had three up there.
 
Okay, let's try the other two.
 
Bobby (the blonde one–he's the Oracle to Jessica Mason's Batman, though he is not disabled): http://www.thefallenangel.co.uk/highmaintenance/?id=25 (the blonde one–he's the Oracle to Jessica Mason's Batman, though he is not disabled)
 
I'm putting this one inbetween to see if it actually works better like this.

Lemniskate brought up something I just hadn't remembered to do: there need to be good references for Jenny Everywhere and Jenny Nowhere. Threfore, I shall offer these:

Jenny Everywhere - I think Diana Nock drew a good version (and this is the Wikipedia image). That is below.


She would not have the bag. Her features are somewhere between Asian and Native American. Blue jeans, green coat, red scarf. Also, the original picture can still be drawn from:


By this, I mean the thing in her hair. Just a little touch of detail for those who want to include it.

Jenny Nowhere - Of course, it's easy to draw off the original drawing.


Though she is encouraged by the Jenny Eveywhere community to change from one appearance to another, it would be nice to maintain some familiarity, and this was the look I was thinking of when I wrote the script (especially the cigarette). I would say she has pale blond (almost white) hair and very untanned Caucasian skin. Her sleeves go down all the way, complimented by full gloves. Her pants go to her knees before the rest of them are covered by her boots, which are very tight and end in a slight heel (a juxtaposition to Jenny Everywhere's sensible boots). It's more of a simple black outfit than anything.

But what do you guys think? If anybody has already drawn their versions, I would like to see what they have come up with. Maybe there's a better (or more original) design out there.

I'd like to add a pigtail or plait to Jenny Nowhere, like on Scorpio from Zodiac.

Go ahead. And a revised picture of Jenny Nowhere on this thread would be appreciated–even if it's a cropped version of the page you're doing.

Since Macattack is likely a bit busy due to the wiki and the contest he recently set up, I thought I'd post the reference for Shock I downloaded before the server move:

 
Also, Lemniskate is finished with his portion, and it looks amazing.  Any artists wanting a reference to how he set up the scene can ask me (or him, of course).

melsr007: Please make your pages on Going Green/Seeing Red http://www.drunkduck.com/forum/topic/173618 your top priority for now, since that's the comic that's updated next.

Yeah, I can wait.  The Ecotist story is one I've been anticipating, too, because I drew a page.

Note that with Fractal, I didn't draw the character nor color the
costume (or draw a second glove, but that's because I didn't have room
as I drew Eiderdown first). This is because the character is in a
constant state of flux, shifting between genders and skin color, as well
as hair-styles and heights. The color of the costume is actually a
fractal pattern, which in itself is not really constant. Fractal can
make energy constructs (a la Green Lantern) which have a fractal pattern
to them.

@ shastab24you got back to me over at the HA forum, thanks!
…my pages are in
progress, although with your description of FRACTAl I'm a little unsure
how to draw or color him/her…
Can anyone share a pic of how they handled Fractal? Final
question…I'm assuming that by the time my scenes rolls around (pages
45 and 46) the church interior is more or less trashed and in disrepair
(I know someone crashed thru the roof earlier but I didn't see any other
mention of destruction until after the fighting was over). Thanks

Actually, Lemniskate drew it rather intact, for what it's worth.
 
And Fractal's defining aspect (and why I only drew the costume) is change.  The character is constantly shifting to different genders, races, etc. and the costume also has a variable fractal pattern on it.  Obviously this is not exactly the easiest character to make iconic, but it does allow for a great degree of flexibility when the character is drawn from page to page (and panel to panel, actually).  Interesting fact, though: Fractal's secret identity is an ambiguously brown androgynous one and takes much effort to maintain (the changing of form is just a natural aspect of Fractal's nature).  Overall, though, I think I created Fractal in part because I am not consistent in drawing characters from one panel to another, and if I ever draw a comic with the character, I don't have to worry so much about consistency.
 
In such an event, Fractal is the one character where it does not matter what other people have drawn in order to depict hir (unless I had included the civilian form, which I didn't).

Whoops, yeah, didn't think about how much and how long the fighting has already been going on, so… intact. But since I didn't depict the front part of the church (the wall opposite to the altar, i.e. the wall with the entrance), from my side there are no restrictions on how much destruction happened there.

Thanks for the info Lemniskate!!
I've got another question for all of you about Bobby and Jess. All the ref pics at the HM website are in black and white. Even the covers are in black and white! I'm assuming Jess is wearing all black, and has black hair with white streaks (and red war paint under her eyes…sometimes). I'm assuming Bobby is blonde. Not a big deal b/c I can always adjust the colors later if I'm wrong. 
My question is about what Bobby is wearing. Jess has an iconic (black?) outfit. But Bobby is a civilian without any standard set of clothes. So just what is Bobby wearing for this occasion?
Thanks.

Jess's hair is all black, as far as I can tell.  The white looks like a way to highlight it, as you can't really shade black.  And the paint also goes above her eyes:

 
I've always seen Bobby as blond, as well.  I shall promptly ask Angel about that, and what he'd be wearing.

Angel got back to me:
“Yes, Bobby's hair is blonde  :)
Attire - that would be a tux / suit on top with shorts and sneakers (think
beach-bum, he's definitely a comfort over fashion kinda person)

Hope that helps, looking forward to seeing things!”

Important note: I bumped the deadline to November.  This is because the Ectotist story still is a priority and obviously not finished yet.  So you now have more time for this story.
