This is my favorite assignment for character design class. Our instructor asked us to draw a mother and father and to give the children attributes from both of them. The daughter was to resemble the father and the son was to resemble the mother. This coincided perfectly with a story that I am currently working on. In that story, Apheidas is one of the main characters, and all of his sisters are actually dryads. In the actual Greek tale, Arcas saved the Hamadryad Chrysopeleia and the two of them actually had two sons. For this assignment, I invented a sister for him based on another one of Arcas’ human daughters.
