I thought of Time For You a couple years ago. Not in its entirety, just the start, the end and patches in-between. When I first thought up Akane (Pictured above), she didn't have much of a role in the story. She was just going to be a baddie that got in the way of the MC's adventure. That all changed when I began working on her model.
I had patches in the story at the time where I knew something was missing, I just didn't know what exactly that was. While working on Akane; particularly her eyes, it almost felt like the story flowed into me. Her back story, characteristics and temperament, along with various conversations she would have in the game. It was phenomenal. She started to fill up the empty patches, and make the story whole.
Anyway, hope you like her because you'll be seeing a lot of her :3
