Making Halloween characters for a Halloween comic (yes I know Halloween is quite far but I thought the earlier the better to do since I still need to see what a comic layout looks like lol XD....
These are Halloween characters: Astrophel (Nick named as Astroph) and Lunette
Astrophel is the skull gentle man you see on the left side.
His name means "star lover". You might recognize this name from Phillip Sidney's sonnet collection - Astrophel and Stella.
Lunette on the right is literally a full blown out kitty cat character. So no humanoid halfkin or anything (think like the sonic characters lol).
Lunette's name literally means 'little moon' as well as derived from the name Luna.
There will be a character that has a name derived from the sun.
There is a pattern with their names since it also goes with their personality.
Astrophel being a STARRY lover (likes star gazing)
Lunette being as white as the moon itself while also being the typical cat that ventures at night but often her little adventure gets her into trouble.
Astrophel's design is based on:
lysandre's outfit from pokemon x and y.
Mystery skulls ghost character - his head floating.
Kcalb from the gray garden.
Lunette designed is based of my old gaia online character with small alterations:
Having 2 pony tails instead of 4
Wearing a black dress to fit with the grim theme
wearing her usual torn mini cape.
Having a big animal nose
Different hair bang
And her signature/favorite flower being the calla lily.
They're two different beings: Felinian (pun feline/cat) and a skullossus (word mix of 'skull' and 'colossus')
Synapsis: Because of the family's strict traditional routine, Lunette leaves occasionally on her own to vent out her usual stress. This night she got a little cocky and decided to venture in a certain area where she should not be in. Luckily saved by a cold yet strange gentlemen who made her night frightening and confusing as the scene itself.
