HEY FOLKS Super weird question out of the blue (and hi there, by the way! Happy holidays, make sure you guys are taking care of yourselves <3) but I've got a question regarding the always unfortunate, ever-present Josh - my human character that you guys may or may not see floating around!
Turns out he's becoming a little recognizable (and I wholly apologize for this,) and as I've been ticking over his design more than ever (he's well overdue for a bit of overhaul!) I've noticed that his eyes are red for almost no good reason. (There is a reason, but not a necessarily good one.*) So in lieu of having another thing about the guy to explain away (I do NOT need more of those |D) I've been thinking of changing the color to something more natural, like a brown or even a gray. If you guys have no idea who/what I'm talking about, feel free to vote - basically, "do I abandon 5 years of (unnecessarily) red eyes?", or "do I stick to the originals, for originality's sake?" - this has been eating at me for SEVERAL weeks, shamefully, and I though I might ask you lovely people for your thoughts!
(Alternatively: if there is a chance that you guys have ideas - where should I put the red instead? Is his design red enough to make up for it? Or should I be implementing that elsewhere? Thank you guys for listening to my endless rambling and for (hopefully!) sharing your thoughts!)
(*In his early design stages, he had 3 colors - black, white, and a small accent of red (in the form of a symbol that floated above his head) - when I turned him into a human, the white went to the coat, the black went to the pants and accents, and the red went to the eyes!)
(Side note: there's almost no doubt that those red eyes, if changed, will stay as an alternative palette option..!)
(..By the way, why is it so hard to make red eye color match, like, anything? (My panic here mostly comes from the fact that in any iterations that I have found, red irises never look unspectacular. And by god, this guy is meant to be as unspectacular as possible, certainly in appearance - let alone that it never quite looks natural or tangible... which is unfortunately what the mind is trying to wander to lately. UGH.) Pinterest can't even save me now!)
