Let's see.

Looks really good.!!!

Thank you.

Cen is missing his ponytail and glasses! It's all wrong. Everything is a lie. Cartoony characters never change!

Angle. Also, Cen really does whatever he likes, including forgetting his glasses at home. Which is somewhat amusing, since he can't see properly without them, but... it happens.
Sadly, also in real life.

It's only fair I learn Danish to make puns.

Danish puns aren't that good.

WHY DO PEOPLE GET THEM CONFUSED? They are not even the same gender.

No idea. I think it's the name and the silly coloured hair, though Kai's is actually natural (for his species).
Sadly, there isn't really much to do about any of that, since Sai does what she likes to her hair, and their names are their names.

Never heard of Lyra, or I just don't remember her. You seem to be the only blond there, is that why you look mad?

Lyra has about as long a story as Cen for various reasons. So she has been around for quite a while, I just don't draw her very often, because I have a hard time dealing with her facial features.
And Cen always looks a bit mad in one way or another.
(Since there's a difference between Cen and I: Actual me would be the one found on the last ASC entry, I am not blonde as much as having the most dull greyish brown haircolour. Presumably the reason all my characters don't.)

...Makeover?

A few of the AU versions actually do have short(er) hair, but Cen, as he is, would not cut his hair. He has some issues...

Lyra looks a bit off-standish compared to the others.

I don't draw her very often, and her canon story does not even make her a real, physical character, as much as a dreambeing, so I don't think you can blame her for not fitting in right.

Hold your bunnies man! I think you are getting Cen confused with Librarian Cen. Obviously two different people, like Ninja Strop and Doctor Strop.

Cen's actually a lot nicer when he works.
/weird fact

I both fear her and think that she'd be able to hold up an intelligible conversation, based upon relooking at her design.

Well, I did have to flesh her out a bit over the last long while. Though she still looks a bit like a doll when wearing a dress. Might be a trick of hers to lull you into false security before she tears you apart.

One thing that I appreciate with your characters, Cen, is that they all have varied body types. This is something I do not seem to be able to get the handle of. Hopefully I'll figure out how to make separate body types look proportional, anyhow.

It will come one day. If nothing, practising in these proportions instead of more realistic ones tend to do the trick some of the way.
Also glad you noticed.

Was that all? Indeed, good.
Now, what else to draw.

Or not.
Very well.

Why does Kai not have shoes on? :D

He doesn't like them. Of all things. Besides that, he does enjoy the cold more than feeling a bit warmer, so not wearing shoes does help that.
He's a bit of a kind.

Probably the intent, she's not looking at "us", (yes I'm aware that Sai isn't either, but Sai is in the middle of the picture, so it would be hard to call her stand-offish.

Probably. Besides, Sai does look a bit pissy, while Lyra looks shy or uncomfortable, might as well be that.
The extrovert-introvert dilemma.

Besides, based on this picture alone, (I've not seen any of Cen's other drawings within reason because I'm not one to browse through art threads) Lyra seems like somewhat awkward with Cen, yknow when you see someone you like but want to avoid and you kind of step a bit to the side to avoid conversation? Yeahhh...
Crush/used to date? :D
If not; it's an idea.

Daaaw.
They are just awkward around each other, Cen is just a better actor.
Anything else to explain would end up in a weird twisted and long story line, which I am not sure would do well for people who does not already know it. Anything AU-related, pretty much the same.

There we are.

Nobody seems to have noticed this, so I shall comment:

Everybody else has these pencil thin squiggles. But not Cen, no. Cen has MANLY EYEBROWS.

This is probably the dumbest question ever, but does your character Cen act like you at all? Is he supposed to?

ooh, ooh, pick me, pick me!

I'd say yes. He's almost your archetypal lancer* through and through. And I am ninja so I know everything :3

See Strop's reply.

Even if there is more to it, it seems like the simplest reply around.

Christmas, usually.
And, well, it's not like I actually have nothing to draw. I have way too much to draw, so once again I sit here, drawing nothing, because my imagination is filled with stories I can't do anything about.

To add onto your too much stuff to draw and complete nothingness, now you should totally draw Cen wearing a kransekage and juggling aebleskiver while eating klejner!
