Concept - Contortionist Twins

Sorry it's been a while since I posted anything ~ no excuses, I'm just crap D:

Anywho, I was thinking about the twins today and I thought I'd doodle a little.

I'm still really unsure about clothing and colours (I suck with colours, you're going to have to help me there), but I think I know how they will look. I was picturing very doll-like and thin, perhaps a bit dead-looking - what do you think? Our level is going to be rather stylized I'm guessing, so I was thinking elongated and pale? Almost like tall dolls in make-up (though I haven't decided on their masks yet...)

Anyway, I thought I'd draw out a base for them, something I can stick clothes and accessories to:

Sorry it's sketchy, I promise I'll refine it once I've settled on a final look.

Anyway, I spent a bit of time cropping and editing some photos of fashion, and sticking on props, mostly for idea generation. This sort of thing:

And then some colours.... *sigh*

I have no idea. Colours are difficult! They look like circus cheerleaders >_>

It's hard having madly-shaped clothes for contortionists. I'm trying to think practically - they have to be able to move and bend quite freely...

Anyway, I'll get some clothing ideas drawn up soon. If you have any ideas (especially with colours) I'd love to hear em :D

  1. I think it would be awesome if they wore laced clothing, but balance it out with that kind of creepy innocent child twins look. Especially with their make up, pale with blank facial expressions
