Nightingale Dump by Yamino Nightingale Dump by Yamino
Sofie, Emily, and Charlie from :iconiamingrid: and my upcoming comic, "Nightingale." It's about a blind, Dutch superheroine living in Amsterdam. Emily is her half-American biracial cousin, BFF, and sidekick. And Charlie is a Filipina popstar who happens to get wrapped up in their adventures.

I am extremely rusty. I have a lot of practice to do before I get accustomed to this style! (And I’m still not entirely sure I know what the “style” of this comic is.)

Hmm... Emily looks more like a dude with her shorter, curlier hair. When I saw the first pic of her like this, I totally thought she was a new character.

There's a pretty significant height difference between Emily and Sofie. I have to wonder if Emily teases her about the height difference. I think Emily's about 5' 10", correct? So Sofie as to be around 5' tops.

Emily knows not to bring it up. It's a sore topic for Sofie, since everyone treats her like a kid. Emily's one of the only people who doesn't. =)

(But that doesn't mean everyone else doesn't comment on it all the time, much to Sofie's chagrin...)

It makes sense. Maybe if Sofie's lucky, she's still due in for one more growth spurt. She's 15 years old, so there is still a small chance she has some time left to grow.

It makes me wonder if her becoming a crime fighting superhero of sorts is partially fueled by the desire to be seen as something other than someone who is cute and helpless.

Um, I'm pretty sure 'mulatto' is considered offensive in some parts of the world >_> (That's what they told us when I was a kid, never call someone a mulatto; it was used by colonizers --at least in Puerto Rico-- with derogatory intentions).

That said, I love especially the profile pics. You can really tell each character from their facial structure and design :D

I call myself mulatto on occasion, I haven't heard anyone be offended by it thus far.

Well, I've never heard anyone using it, outside of one comment after mine and you. Like I said, I was taught in school to never use it because of its historical implications. So I never have and never will, unless I write a historical story or something where it'd make sense for people to use the word ^^; I'm actually surprised no one else seems to have been taught about the word in a historical sense in school, and the fact that no one has a problem with it :shrug: Oh, well. xD

Oh I've learned about it historically. Hm, I guess it's just a reappropriation of words thing, like f****t or dy*e or n****r. =/

I just checked it out, here: [link]
And it seems that the term is generally accepted as non-offensive. You're right though, I should probably change it and refer to her as "mixed" or "biracial" instead. o-o

Ah then, never mind. I personally will avoid using it though, just in case XD;;

I think "mixed race" sounds cooler X3

Both. Sofie is practically a midget, and Emily is tall- they're comically mismatched. XD

I love the pose you've drawn in the bottom right corner :heart: so sweet!
And the "nyeh" is adorable =D
I think you do have a style, different from Sister Claire, for this comic. It's more mature and suiting for the story!
