Remember Me by tbdoll Remember Me by tbdoll
So, tomorrow, the 27th, is the birthday that I gave my killjoys: Captain Phantom and Commander Cutlass.

I started this family portrait a while ago and really wanted to finish it before their birthday, so I'm glad I finally sat down and did so. I've also started quite a few of them when they were younger and never finished any until now.

Cutlass and Phantom are about thirteen here, and this is probably the last time they saw their parents. Obviously a lot has changed since then. I almost gave Cutlass a little scruff but thought it worked better without it. Phantom's figure hasn't really come in yet (she was a late bloomer~) and of course she has both eyes.

I hope I showed the age differences all right. Their parents were pretty young when the twins were born so I didn't want to make them look too old.

Are you ready to learn their real names? Some of you already know them but here you go, from left to right:

Thomas Adustio (Later Known as Commander Cutlass), Stella Adustio (Later Known as Captain Phantom), Nick Adustio (AKA Jailhouse Ghost), and Luna Adustio (AKA Darling Riddle).

There's also a story to go with this picture! Holy shit!

Also, drawing four figures is exhausting. I'm not totally happy with Luna but it'll do.

Luna is so cuuuute XD I love it. [: I like how you did the aging on them. I mean the parents don't look TOO old but you can still tell that they've been through the ringer. And I love that you toned down Cutlass and Phantom's cheek bones and gave them baby chubby cheeks. Great as always~

XD Thank you! And yes, have to love baby face/no tattoos Phantom and Cutlass, haha. Before they grew up and got all malnourished and modified.

You're welcome. XD Oh yes lol, back when they were well fed and didn't have abandonment issues.

Back in the good ol' days! Well actually they weren't really that great back then either. Let's face it, they were doomed.

Nice detail as always (like the Captain America shirt, haha.) Like how their dad (I assume he's the one on the right) looks a lot like Commander, too. Nice touch there.

But if I can give some constructive criticism-- maybe you could work on the ages a little? Like, make the twins look a little younger and their parents look a little older. They all look like they're 17-20. (I actually thought this was a group of teenagers when I first saw it.) I've seen some age charts around DA so that could help you.

Thank you! Cutlass is a secret comic nerd, lol. Yes, their dad is on the right, I listed them out in order in the description. =]

I totally agree on the ages, it was something I struggled with throughout. As their parents are only supposed to be early thirties I didn't want to make them look TOO old but I fear I made them look too young in the process. I tried referencing the aging section of my human head book but I think I went about it too subtly.
