re-designing Luke by oomizuao re-designing Luke by oomizuao
Not sure if you remember this guy, but here's the first version of him that I made:

At that point, I really wasn't sure what to do with this character. I did have an idea for him, that he would be Lillith's ex boyfriend (and her first boyfriend), but he looked more like someone's dad than a teenager.. :XD:
So, I re-designed him just now, rather quickly. I still sort of want him to be Lillith's ex-boyfriend. She fell for him because he was in a band and stuff, but he turned out to be a real douche, and she sort of lost faith in men.. :p at least she didn't try to get any boyfriends after that relationship.

Fun fact: Luke's hair was originally made to look like Spike's hair, so that Lillith would like Luke because he reminded her of Spike. But I abandoned that idea, and thus changed his hairstyle a bit. His hairstyle is actually inspired by the hairstyle of Jason Butler, lead singer of Letlive (if you haven't heard of them, check them out! they're kick ass awesome! :D ). I didn't base Luke on J.B. though, at all. So I hope no one thinks that ^^; I just needed a cool haircut for my character XD I mean, even if Luke is a jerk, he can look like he's not, right? :3
It's like Charles... Even if he's a horrible guy, he doesn't have to look as ugly on the outside as he's on the inside. Looks can deceive. ;p


aw, I'm rambling again... xD sorry!


Also, I'm sorry if you guys don't like the thought of Lillith having an ex.. But I felt it would make her a little more realistic, since a lot of people have exes they kinda wish they didn't have, you know?
And she can't be all 100% happy with no negative things ever having happened to her, because that's just... not very realistic or easy to relate to. But despite having gone through some struggles in her life, she's a strong and happy girl who loves life (and music) :) So she doesn't let bad things bring her down :D

aaand I keep ranting XD god, I gotta stop that! :B
I'm just working on Lillith as a character, and developing a background story for her, you see. And I just felt like sharing some of it ^^;


anyways..

Is Lillith herself some sort of musician or just a fan?

Im digging the haircut and his colors remind me of coffee for some reason. Is he a coffee person? The yellow eyes are a nice touch and it's nice to see some color in your characters. I'm not saying I don't enjoy it, I love all your characters, but it's nice to have a change once in a while :)

in a live stream u were talking about how u had some troubles and now love life and what not, aand u love music, u express that ALOT, and i so i assume that u gave lilith character traits that you have, so in a way lilith is basically you. which is pretty neat actually how you subliminally oncorporate yourself into one of your books which stars another character its pretty cool. thats if im right at least...

I... didn't mean to incorporate myself into the "SPIKE" novel. That was never my intention. ^^;
Lillith and I have a lot in common, but we're not the same. When I first created her, she had the same personality and music interest as she has now, and she was everything I wanted to be. I was very insecure and not like her at all back then, but in the later years it seems I've caught up with her a bit, so I'm apparently not that different from her anymore. But she's stayed the same. The only thing I've changed/added is her background story.
Lillith has been nothing more than a character I could look up to, she was never meant to be me. But back when I first made her, I made sure she would be someone I'd like as a person, hence the music interest, rocker style, blue hair, etc...
I've added her in the story, not as a self-insert, but because I needed a strong female character in it, and didn't feel the need to create a new one when I already had one that would fit.
I've become more similar to her, that's all. She's stayed the same for years. :)

that is still really neat being able to see the background, background of your characters. i love how u explained why u made lilith and why u gave her, her traits and characteristics. i love how u are able to create characters that you are able to look up to, absolutely a great idea. i also love how u know who u are as a person enough to know what u value in role models, or in other people as well. and for quite a few months i have been looking up to saunders and trying to be in a way like him. because i dont have a dad anymore and cuz my mom is always at work i basically raise my little brother steven who is 13 and is capable of doing alot of things on his own. but i used to not really care about what his interests were and what he was doing etc. and then i saw how saunders cares so much and how much i wish i had a dad like that and just how awesome saunders is, i really felt like i should try to be a saunders except a older brother version and give steve a person to look up to in a positive way. and im also REALLY planning on naming my kid saunders when i become of age that way i am able to constantly remind myself to be a good dad, cuz my dad was a charles and i can really relate to spike like i have said before. (just no molestation but i believe the abuse was heavier) and my goal in life ever sence i was a wee little lad was to be a saunders, you just portrayed what i want to be epicly in your book. good god this was one hell of a reply. and PLEASE reply to my NOTE that i sent you. (sorry for caps i just really need the info quickly before it tis too late)

hmmm.... I like the old hairdo better. I like that you gave im a moustache though.

So he's Lillith's Ex boyfriend? What's the likelyhood of Luke and Spike meeting?

Question (and one I would like to have answered): Is Luke some kind of hybrid? because he looks like a Canine/Feline hybrid. kind of like Artie except... different....

He is a very attractive character, I must say.
I shall uncover the secret of this with a simple formula:
Facial Hair = Instant sexy.

Otherwise... He does sound like a douche. xD

Awesome job! I do like the new hairstyle as well!

As for your story, you do a good job making your characters very believable, but I woul like to suggest adding in facts like, "wow, didn't see that one coming" to your characters!!A real attention grabber!!!

Oomi, you keep up the good work!

I'm totally excited to hear more about your story SPIKE!!!

If you think he looks more like a dad than a teenager, why not make his age 20-ish. That way he's not a teenager, but not very old either.

In his first version he looks like an expert in computing (but not a nerd). Now he doesn't look like a computing expert. I like him anyway, but he seems different.

When I first saw his original design, he seemed a bit Saunders-ish... if you know what I mean, ha, you know, all rough looking but a cuddly bunny on the inside, although Saunders is a bit cuddly inside and out :3 This is amazing though! Really wish I could draw like you D: haha. Practice practice I shall~ :3
