For as long as I’ve had this blog I’ve kept the characters’ appearances as vague as possible because I wanted readers to be able to imagine them however they wanted. And that’s cool. Because of the subject matter, I think it’s important that your country looks like someone you can relate to. But I also know that having a set appearance for a character (and then expressing that through art/illustrations/etc.) helps that character become a memorable icon.
So, here’s an open question to all my readers and whomever it may concern: should I keep the characters’ appearances “anonymous” or not?
In other words, are you happy imagining them on your own, or would you have more fun if you could see established characters?
