This is SO important for people to realize…so often i have had people ask me why they are the same weight as myself or someone else, but they wear a different size, or complain that they look so very different. Body composition people, and skeletal structure. We are each unique. Don’t ever compare yourself to someone else in a negative way.

   Hi Gigi! I wanted to ask you a question about colors! I have a problem with choosing colors when there is drastic lighting, whether its really bright light or if the characters are in a really dark, dimly lit place. I’m not sure how to choose the colors that fit the characters (that make them look like they’re themselves, and not different. I hope that makes sense!) So, how do you choose your colors when doing that sort of lighting in your comics?
