I’ve been struggling with the aesthetic of the characters for a while now and I’ve constantly asked myself How should I bond the character with it’s character poetry? I’ve gone from numbering each line of poetry and printing its corresponding number on the back of the characters, to simply writing down the poem in a book. This is the newest why I’ve decided to present the character’s background story with the character. However, it interrupts the view of the character itself, but then again in real life the character’s back story does interrupt the way they are seen.
I’m curious though, for the those of you who have been following the series for a while, what do you think? Do you prefer the old characters without words obstructing their view? Or do you like the new aesthetic of the words printed on?
I might even use both styles: that way the characters with words upset the stasis of the other characters.
