Meet Jessica "Jess" Acosta 18 yrs old, high school senior, 5'8"
Jess is: + Charming, social, suave + Intelligent, observant, down-to-earth + Handles life with calm efficiency - Vain with an ego to match - Passive and aloof - Lost track of herself at the expense of others
Please, ladies and gents, there is enough Jess for everyone.
Omg. Jess, Y U take so long to finish?? Щ(ºДºщ) I mean REALLY! I know you need to be perfect at every moment but I can only draw handsome girls for so long before I start thinking about drawing smut! wait what Stella/Mona will probably have less content in the way of side characters... because well, I haven't thought of any yet. Next up should be Stella, and she and Mona should both be done this month.
Eh, I've been with a girl like her before, and I think I handled her quite well, if I do say so myself
Seriously though, I really love her, all yours and Ty's characters, your styles and portrayal of them is lovely. I know that a lot of people have said that they want the comic now, but I actually think waiting like this is a far better plan. It enables us, the readers, to get to know the characters as they develop in your minds, something I don't think many comics do these days.
Your work is really inspiring to artists like me, I know I personally have taken inspiration from your work to pick up the pencil again and start on some fan art that'll do your babies justice, specifically some of Jay and Jess who happen to be my favorite couple as of right now ^^
Speaking of Jay, I'd bet she'd probably chase after me if I took her Jess away from her, that protective lil pup :3
Gah, aside from the late reply (sorry ahh!) You don't know how much that means to both of us. We honestly didn't really think it'd end up this way, because they were supposed to only be one chapter... Things tend to grow on their own, I guess- but it is kind of exciting to be able to share growth of our characters with everyone- it's really something, even if it can be sort of daunting at times. We really want to make sure we're not disappointing anyone after all this hype, but I can't deny we're improving so fast it shocks even a perfectionist like me.. X//D So here's to hoping it's all worth the wait and the toil!
Also, gah, if you do fanart, we'd absolutely love to see!! And wahah, that's pretty spot on, Puppy!Jay wouldn't be none too happy.
OMG. YAY! I have no regrets for making you crush on them, sorry! It just means you get to hang out and enjoy the ride with us and jess is happy to have you on board : D Thank you so much though! We're having a blast with this and hope to post more soon!
And I have no regrets for crushing on them! XD I'm really excited for this one, really, lol So I'm glad you have me along for the ride. I'm just really glad I decided to check these stories out, if only because I like the art at first. But after that, I looked into your characters and the plots and relationships and...
Yeah, I'm kind of stalking your art folders now XD But I'm certainly looking forward to more. You're doing Sam and Sara's story first, right? (I can't wait for the angst cake that is Sam ) And I'm glad you're having fun with it!
(And Jess is happy to have me on board? Ohohoho, I assure you, I'm glad to BE on board )
If she had pink hair, she would be Utena. And I love her for it. BUH! It's so hard to decide who I like the most. They each have adorable/cool/amazing qualities that make me fangirl like a nut! # ~# Can't decide so I will take one of each!
If you haven't seen or read Revolutionary Girl Utena, this might not make much sense, but... ...I was looking at this picture and remembering all the girls swooning over Utena and calling her "Prince" and "Utena-sama". Jess is like Utena but with all the suave charm in the world and less bright red bike shorts.
...Then I remembered Jay, and that's she paired with Jess. Imagine Jay in the Rose Bride dress, at Ohtori. That hypersonic explosion you just heard was my brain detonating inside my skull.
Now I can't wait for these stories cos Jess and Jay are gonna be *epic* beyond measure. I'm ordering a whole new brain in case you guys end up blowing that up too
I still really need to see that series- I have it ready to watch, I just haven't found the time. @__@ I really want to though. I've got two Jess-Utena or so, it makes me giggle! Jay in Anthy's dress... Ahh. She'd do it. BD Honestly, Jess could fill every LadyPrince role ever, Utena, Strawberry Panic's Amane, A Host in Ouran, Sailor Uranus, the list goes on. The only difference is, well, she gets Jay. *CACKLES* We hope to make their story the most humorous, more or less, mostly because Jay's personality disallows too much angst. THANK GOODNESS. I hope that new brain has an extended warranty... :'D
Oh, thank you so much! It's that kind of support that really thrills us and motivates us with this project. I definitely know the feeling with poor lgbt lit... especially in webcomics and graphic novels.
I can't give any specific dates, but we're nearing completion (maybe 80%?) of the plot, so we'll probably be taking off with pages after that, which we've already started. We'll keep everyone updated though, for sure!
