So, I was looking for references on Google to help aid in drawing manga, and a manga character popped up who looks EXACTLY LIKE ELIAS! And from CLAMP, no less!! Basically, CLAMP stole Elias and put him in a shojo manga!!!!!!!!!

Elias looks pretty studly in a shojo manga, doesn't he?? And THIS would be Elias if Bert could draw well!!!!!!!!!! *Cough* Anyway, I had never heard of this series, so I started looking into it... I feel obligated to read it now that fake Elias is in there. Pfffft!!!

Bert, these are my Watchman reference pics I used to create the characters for my book/pics/cover...even somewhat their personalities. However, now I have a great foundation for my manga characters.

Sidney Tamiia Portier my Delah ref. 67697
Jeremy London my Paul ref. Jeremy-London-299x538-21kb-media-444-media-0054[1]
Warehouse1 gal my Nelly ref. JoanneKelly3
Teeabu ref I can't find the pics he's between Keanu Reeves and another Indian/Italian guy. I even made up Teeabu's name after Keanu...they have the same sound. Click below...that's where I uploaded a lot of my pics of them for you.

Waaaaaaaaah!! That's so awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can definitely see the similarities for them! Although Warehouse1 gal looks absolutely freestyle gorgeous, whereas all the Nelly pictures I've seen of her have her looking very rigid with a bun! Hahahaha! Those similarities I cannot see!! I need to see more of her, I think. *Sweatdrop* .....................HINT. *Wink*

:clap: THANKIES!!! Well, the deal is I love some of her expressions. She bring the character to life. Nelly's got spunk...the drawings I have right now of her are few and far between. But she's really prevalent in the written story and matches the Warehouse gal (she banters with Paul, which will be fun). Her hair is lighter red in my story, but she has a commanding presence like Warehouse gal (She tells off one of the main Alliance security men when he nastily tries to come on to her...she even at one point tries to slap Teeabu...for good reason...I mean we don't blame her! But she has a big heart, really a good gal.)
