As promised, here are some South Park style portraits of how the youthful cast members from The Riveras appear in the minds of the authors. Kevin and Oscar were designed by me; all the others were designed by Rosey.

Kevin and Oscar http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -618940274

Lucy and Jandro, Kevin's new friends from his seventh grade class http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -624686631

Michael and Ella, two more seventh graders who have started to make their presence felt in Kevin's life http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -624688294

Catherine and Stephanie, seventh grade gal-pals to a T http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -624689119

Martin and Phoebe, the ninth grade's most enthusiastic practitioners of pastoral care for the younger kids http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -624689750

I admit, when I saw the name "Ella" I was wondering if it was going to be a reboot of Ella Stevens, one of Rosey's GBOT characters (A member of Oscar's band Mood Slime) but once I read the story obviously not. (Or at least, it's not obviously the same character)

Thanks for posting these; helps some people (like me) get a feel for the characters more easily.

This Ella began with my need for Michael to have a girlfriend, and I envisioned a girl who happened to have some similarities to the original Ella, which is probably why the name sprang to mind. The surname Williams is very much in the same vein as Stevens, which is not deliberate; I just needed her to be last on the register (or roll call, if you prefer). They're not particularly intended to be the same character, but equally they could be, so that's very much open to interpretation.

That's very much the aim of them. Thanks for your comments, Fritz. :)

I have often wished that I could draw fantastic illustrations of various scenes in the stories I have written over the years, but this is something that I know to be far beyond my capabilities. Recently, however, I have been enjoying myself a great deal creating some more South Park style illustrations of Kevin and his contemporaries, attempting to use the props, clothes and facial expressions available on the South Park Character Creator to evoke some of the scenes from our new 'Collinsverse'.

Thanks to the fact that the available elements are not limitless, some aspects of the pictures may be more illustrative than literally recreating exactly what the text describes, but personally I find the finished results no less fun for that. I am hosting the pictures on my DeviantArt account, as you can probably tell from the links below. These are all the illustrations for the stories that have been released so far, but there will certainly be more in the future.

From the tail end of our first virtual season, Kevin develops an insatiable thirst for the blood of young men when he is possessed by Lamia ('Midnight at Glens Falls') and Oscar finds that his mind is no longer his own after he looks into the dead eyes of Vigo ('Back in the Picture') http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -674030300

From 'August: A Friend in Need', Kevin and Oscar are kitted out to spend the night together in Kevin's room, much to Carl's chagrin http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -674030851

From 'September: Just Thinking About Tomorrow', Kevin steps in to help when Ella gets into a heated debate over her crop top http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -674074185 and Ella is pleased to be wearing Kevin's jacket, but Michael is furious about the situation http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -674075412

From 'December: Christmas Yet to Come', Ebenezer Scrooge (Kevin) has his heart strings pulled when he pays a ghostly visit to the house of his faithful clerk, Bob Cratchit (Jandro) http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -674109943 and after the play, Lucy and Kevin talk about their feelings and cement their close friendship http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -674111132

From 'January: Friends For Life', Michael is pleased with his contribution to the group geography project, but Kevin is far from convinced that Michael has done any work at all http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -674111863

From 'February: Affairs of the Heart', Kevin and Michael have a quick punch-up in the boys' restroom before finally cementing their friendship http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -674228129 and in afternoon homeroom, Kevin worries that Ella has misinterpreted his intentions towards her http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -674228434

From 'March: Boys Will Be Boys', Oscar is on hand with moral support when Kevin thinks of the past and upsets himself http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -674228625 and Kevin is on hand with practical support when Oscar slices his right thigh open http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -674228866

From 'April: Girls' Night Out':

In this illustration, designed by Rosey, Lucy is surprised (and slightly unnerved) by Ella's definition of normal night attire http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -677957112

Here is my take on what Kevin, Michael and Jandro looked like once kitted out and ready for their boys' sleepover http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -677957965 and the next morning, Kevin is pleased to see that Lucy and Ella have apparently enjoyed their girls' sleepover http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -678766968

From 'June: Milestones':

In the boys' locker room, Jandro's state of mind starts to worry Kevin http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -689595275

Pacey the dog looks on with growing concern as Jandro becomes more and more drunk, and Lucy starts to feel more and more out of her depth http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -689596092

Having phoned their families to explain why they won't be coming home until the next morning, Kevin and Lucy share a heartfelt moment in Jandro's hallway http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -689596652

Early the next morning, Kevin and Lucy provide Jandro with the support and understanding that he has recently been feeling deprived of http://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art/ ... -689597323

In Part 2, Ella and Michael are seriously worried that Kevin and Oscar's tardiness is going to make them miss the start of the movie https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -719703546 and Kevin and Lucy give each other some much needed emotional support in the school library https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -719703822

In Part 3, Oscar finally reveals the true extent of his feelings to Kevin https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -722418484 and Jandro looks on with anticipation as Kevin makes a very important phone call https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -722418819

Jandro & Lucy https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -691251393

From 'Mikey's Girl', designed by Rosey:

When Eduardo enters the room, Pagan attempts to elicit jealousy by doing a number on Jandro's testicles, Ella goes all girly, and Michael seethes with jealousy https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -731569496

From 'Best Friends', designed by Rosey:

In the girls' locker room, Ella and Lucy comfortably display their underwear as a natural part of their changing routine, little suspecting the sequence of events that is about to be set in motion as a result https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -738373304

Stephanie is dismayed at the results of her own careless talk in the girls' bathroom, but an outraged Ella has no sympathy for her https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -738373994

Lucy provides Catherine with some much-needed emotional support, and learns her greatest secret in the process https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -738374675

Lucy and Ella's light-hearted antics with a pencil and a hairbrush lead to a scene that Michael will be reliving over and over again in his mind for quite some time https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -738375340

Additionally, these are the first two entries in my 'The Riveras Abed' series, in which I've used a simple (but I think fairly effective) process in Paint to show a bird's-eye view of two (or sometimes more than two!) characters in bed together. We start off with a couple of anomalously chaste scenes, as the girls enjoy some laughter-filled sleepovers in their best-friend pairs:

Ella and Lucy https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -738180684

Stephanie and Catherine https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -738181083

Michael almost hugs Kevin, but dashes back into his apartment before going through with it https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -742505951

Over a glass of Sunny D, Kevin and Jandro share an intimate moment that leads to an unspoken agreement between them never to act on their significant mutual physical attraction, but stick with their very nice friendship instead https://theeyeshield.deviantart.com/art ... -742507139
