We don't have any artists at the time I'm posting this, but by the time we get some, you should have seen the sketches of how we're picturing the characters to look. Four of the five main girls also change drastically after the meteor shower, losing any animalistic qualities and becoming regular humans. Syrene probably won't need a new character sprite since you won't really see much of her legs, but she'll have to wear normal clothes from then on.
In terms of expressions we're going to need these ones on the main characters for sure:
Neutral (will be different depending on which character it is)
For these next ones, I'm not sure if every main will need them, but there's a chance they will:
I'm not sure how hard it is to do, but embarrassed and the crying ones might be achievable with a blushing and tear effect that can just be applied to one of the other expressions.
And then these ones are probably more character-specific:
As of right now, poses will be left up to the artist's discretion unless any of the writers feels strongly about something they want. From my point of view, I would rather see how you interpret the characters' personalities through their poses and expressions before we collectively decide if that's the look we're going for.

*Carina may only need one of these
If you go over to the characters thread, there's more description about what each character should look and act like.
They all look great so far! I'm curious to see what Rena's hair would look like if it were more orangey than red, mostly for comparison's sake.
Ashe's skin could use some complexion. She should be fairly pale, but right now she looks too much like a ghost or apparition, which makes sense since she's technically the soul of the tree, but the whiteness is a bit much. Other than that, though, her design is really nice.
The others don't tend to post on here super often (mostly because there's no reason for them to just yet), so you'll probably get some more opinions at the writer meetings and whenever we can get the artist meetings set up.
