Vanessa Fly Trap Comics: Get Out There

This week is the first Vanessa Fly Trap Comic I did, “Get Out There”. I made it with the intent of establishing the relationship between Vanessa and her brother Victor. Victor doesn’t like particularly like other people and certainly doesn’t go out of his way to accommodate them or go out to meet them. He would much rather spend his time at home reading books, browsing the web, or working on an invention. His sister is basically the polar opposite and is constantly trying to get him outside and bring him along when she goes to see her friends. This comic plays with that particular dynamic show how each sibling tries to work with the other, Enjoy!

Vanessa Fly Trap Comics: Cover Page

Hello there fellow readers! Some of you might know I’ve been working on writing and drawing my children’s book but what if I told you that I actually drew a few comic pages revolving around the main characters. This week I will be showing 1 per day with a brief look into what I was thinking at the time. If those get a lot of comments, likes or support, I might start drawing more comics with more characters from this project.

So with further ado, the cover page of the comic I made all the way back in 2012, unedited with the old logo.

Appearance

She is yellow-green with green leaves and has brown hair, usually with a purple flower adorned on top. Her casual wear consists of a purple turtle-neck sweater, blue jeans, and orange topped white sneakers. Being a flytrap is much shorter than people her age, being the size of a five-year old even though she is 12 years of age.

Personality

Vanessa takes pride in knowing about the people that enjoys being in her company and is particularly happy about herself when she predicts someone’s actions accurately or find gifts that they really like. This makes her a person that generally pleasent to be around.

And she enjoys making new friends out of unfamiliar faces and planning activities with those familiar. It gives her a joy that she want’s to share with her brother, Victor, who is less outgoing than her.

Although she is generally uses humor like understatements and puns to diffuse a problem with those she knows, she can become very frustrated and sarcastic with those who give her a bad impression due to stubbornness and similar traits. Most often she reacts to people and things she dislikes with exaggerated confusion (and sometimes sadness or disappointment, or less often, outrage).

At times she can also be self-centered in that she will often assume that her ideas are the best course of action in a situation. Typically this is when she sets her mind on an outing or adventure for everyone and expects it go pretty much as she pictures it.

!Skills

As a Venus Fly Trap, Vanessa can make her own food with only sunlight and water. She can also eat a variety of insects but hates roaches and says she never eats them. She can also stay submerged in water up to an hour due to being a swamp plant. She is also pretty fire resistant for a plant,  and moreso than most people.
