Concept art for younger versions of Mae, Dolly, Noble, and Anthony.

I finally made an actual reference sheet for myself for the designs of character when they’re younger, before I was just going off of memory.

Before Joel gave Mae her signature purple scarf, she had a long white and blue scarf she’s been wearing since she first started school. Mae is really attached to it, and she tends to stroke it when she gets anxious (the fact that she started wearing Joel’s scarf instead of this one means that she really appreciated him…).

Dolly made her signature pink dress herself when she got into high school, but before that she wore the pink and green dress her mom bought her.

When Noble was little his parents quickly found out that certain fabrics would irritate him, so they settled with dressing him in a loose nightgown.
