See the word play I did there?

Totally related to Heart of the Dead... as in, they're all the same characters, but SUBTLY DIFFERENT.

Whereas the original designs of Heart of the Dead were simpler, cuter, meant for a pre-teen romantic comedy sort of setting, these HEATed designs are sexier, darker and edgier, meant more for an action setting. I got the idea after watching One Piece for a while, haha.

I am fully prepared for people to hate these designs and prefer the old ones, as well as for people to love these over the old ones, or anything in between. I can't say either version is the "real" design for these characters, as I can't say I'll be doing anything with them either way. It was an experiment in character design. A fun one!

And one I might try with your character (for free) - see Journal.

I always find it interesting to take old characters and give them a new look. It's fun to try and match them up to the old ones as well and see how close and yet how different you can make them. FUN TIMES BY ALL!!

Cool! I liked the old designs, but these are pretty awesome too. They're just a bit different. :) That does sound like a fun experiment to try with one's characters.

I think these are pretty nifty! But what I'm really impressed with is how much your experimenting with styles; very cool. The two witches are easily my faves : D

The sad thing is... I already had a tab open. It was TvTropes that linked me to DeviantArt. [link]

Love 'em all, though I do prefer the old Isabel and Arianna. Annaira is probably my favorite in both sets, however.

I have to say I like both versions of most of them...but sexier, darker, and edgier is always what I try for my characters too, so these guys are more up my alley.

Excellent work.

Though I like both sets of designs, I have to profess my love for the Zarelle redesign. It's very striking, capturing my eye and imagination immediately. Great work :D

Glad you like Zarelle! I was quite ambivalent about getting rid of her hair :XD:

It works very well, as does the tattooing. It's also somehow feels very appropriate, considering her title...

Well, I like how it's pretty clear who's who. (Unless I'm just plain wrong about some. ^^;)

Certaily the shy and wild werewolves look VERY different from each other in this one. :o
