You know that project I wanted to do? The one that involved drawing a Las Almejas comic? Yeah… like most of my ideas it went nowhere. So I’m forced to create my characters with the Scott Pilgrim character generator:

Jennifer Rodriguez

Lauren Rodriguez

Fiona Gainsbourgh

If I did do my own comic, they might look kind of like this. But I’d hope I’d have my own style. I loved Scott Pilgrim, but I don’t want to rip it off, obviously. But overall, they turned out pretty well. Funny, I don’t think I ever gave Fiona a permanent last name. Well, that has changed. I’m sure when I come up with one I like better it will change it. Without explanation. And the floating storyline will remain intact. Huzzah!

The only things I’d change would be 1) Lauren would have Lisa Loeb glasses. Sadly the character generator did not allow for this. And 2) Lauren and Jennifer would be a lot curvier. They’re Mexican chicas, not skinny white girls! They have big butts, and hips, and big booooo-beeees and yet slim waists. But overall, close enough. They also probably have darker skin, but I had a hard time coming up with realistic skin tone in the generator as well. Fiona is a natural redhead. Again, maybe not the most realistic hair color, but it’s not dyed.

So, now you know what the barely legal punk rock heroes of El Paso look like.
