    I figured this section would be more suitable than Utau Discussion ^^

    Hmm, so lately I've been brainstorming a new character who I just may make into an Utau(if I can get a voice) and I'd like to hear some thoughts on her so far, along with how she appears, what voice do you think she'd have/voice that fits her best, etc.

    So I named her 'Pearl'. She's an idol/singer who displays a lot of confidence and enthusiasm on stage, but offstage she seems standoffish and aloof, making her appear rather stuck-up. However, she's actually quite kind but is more concerned with making money to support her family; she is rather poor and uses the funds she makes from her career as well as other jobs to do so. She is also a tad prideful, since she doesn't let anyone know about her circumstances, being rather ashamed of her situation.

    This art I did some days ago, just casual clothing since I have yet to make an outfit design for her(feel free to drop any ideas about that if you'd like :smile:)

    She looks good on characterization side.But i have a critique on the design if you don't mind.
    Her hair color doesn't seem to go well with her skin tone..
    They both are in dark brown which makes it hard too see her face, maybe changing her hair to another color/her skin tone lighter might help 'u'

    Thanks! Do you think you could elaborate a bit..? When I look her skin is dark brown, and her hair is a light brown, almost caramel in color

    You're welcome..it's just a small critique tho ^^
    I see them dark brown here, eventho i can tell the hair is lighter but i couldn't notice that at the first glance...The difference is pretty thin.
    It can be our monitor that give different result or maybe the colors a lil too close to each other.

    Maybe colors like your pro pic's shirt and yukata can be good colors for Pearl? They look so good and they support each other in the monitor here 'w'

    With the blue, now your utau could be mines cousin lol.

    Her brown skin can go with any color of her hair honestly. I liked the hair before , but its the more so the outfit that you really want to focus on when making them. I can help you do some concept art if you'd like :smile:. Is there a particular theme/personality you have for her?

    Oh lol Me and my friend were talking about it and decided she may be good as mint chocolate chip(the brown color mixed with the green color a bit)

    And oh, that'd be nice!! She's pretty confident/sassy onstage, offstage she's more reserved and kind of snooty/aloof. Maybe a sweater type thing would work....?

    I am so slow and I apologize, but this is what I have so far. I know that she is more reserved and that this pose shows more of her performance side, but what do you think so far?

    The picture isn't cleaned up all the way, but I hope you can see the mint chocolate going on.

    Holy moly this is one good design+piece of artwork!! It's really nice and I like how u captured her personality+the idol bit :smile:

    One thing, though, is that I'd like her design to incorporate pearls, like in my sketch where she had Pearl hair-ties. I'll also try to get in some design elements and see if we can combine mine and yours ^=^ Still, awesome work!!
