I am aware that my art suffers a bit from the same face syndrome, especially for these three. So I made a comparison chart.

There will be stand-alone comic page at New Year, before the new chapter begins.

Pffft, flokatiheads...

Captain Camilla though is easily as wicked as them, and she is definitely not a flokatihead... ;-)

I don't mind wickedness. But I added the three blondes on my very-very own page, too.

“Grim”, ”Crazay”, and “Smug”

And to dismiss blondes arbitrarily is not prudent.

The Bad, the Other Bad, and the Beautiful (but also Bad)...

And well, as the alt-text says, I still have the very blonde Mirabell on the good side...

But seriously, I recommend taking a look at messing with their posture, proportions, and mannerisms. I think the old saw about being able to tell your characters apart even when they're in profile would apply here.

(Her difference from most of my characters is one of the reasons I like drawing Wildebees, BTW.)

That's sound advice!

For some of my characters I have relatively clear images in my head, but unfortunately that doesn't mean that I always manage to get this across adequately in the drawings.
(Here for example, I am a bit dissatisfied in how Ytterbium turned out.)
