Is it wrong that I read Gastro in Bobby Hill's voice? Also, Ornitho is supposed to be "played" by Duke Red, yes?
It’s not wrong. You can make him sound like anyone you want! Bobby Hill is kind of a starting point for Gastro’s personality, but not the end goal. I picture Gastro’s voice more like Otto from Time Squad, who has the exact same voice actress as Bobby. But he could just as easily be voiced by Cree Summer. Mania/Krphxyzwlps is voiced by Phil Hartman.
I’d be lying if I said Ornitho’s design wasn’t influenced a little by Duke Red, but he’s not him. He’s just supposed to look bird-like.
Yo that sphinx is adorable, how hard was it for you to get her design down?
In Trivia’s first appearance, she looked a little different, but you could say the same thing about main characters like Klepto, Krphxyzwlps, and even Phobia. Of course, I spend some time coming up with initial character designs, but I have no qualms about changing them.
Part of her cuteness is from how small she is. I read somewhere that (now extinct) European lions were smaller than African lions and went with that. Her current haircut is taken from Sapphire of Osamu Tezuka’s Princess Knight (my favorite Tezuka book), who has a very cute haircut. She has kitty whiskers too, but I keep forgetting to draw them. Maybe I’ll go back and fix that before having volume 3 printed.
If I was redesigning her from scratch, I’d probably make her look more like sphinxes are portrayed in Greek pottery and statuary, with abstracted wings and feathery torsos. She looks more Roman, I think.
