Skins Chapter 2, Page 1 by LJ-Phillips Skins Chapter 2, Page 1 by LJ-Phillips
Previous fav.me/d6vlr4j

Chapter Two is set about 9 months after Tyr's fight with Aces. We'll be seeing the fight in flashback in this chapter.

Final design of Rachel. Quite different from my original concept of the character but when suddenly a character stops being a mere abstraction on paper and starts to breath, I'm not going to argue.

Rachel is quite a bit older then the rest of the characters. It's part of the reason Vinnie disapproved of Rabbit's relationship with her. Rabbit was only eighteen at the time and she was his supervisor. 

What do you think of the age gap between Rabbit and Rachel?

Back when she was part of the Coven, Rachel acted as the supervisor for all the main characters at one point or another- a kind of mentor/counselor.  She trained Jordan. 

So she has a far deeper insight into them then most people - she knows exactly where their insecurities and fears lie. And I think her betrayal of the Coven struck them more deeply - with the exception of Vinnie, they all trusted her. 

Notes: Rachel's been the character with the most changes etc. I have three notebooks with sketches and notes on her - all with slightly different looks, occupations and origin. Then I was literally stuck with inspiration out the blue. It all came together and I knew the character.

You have a good sense of people. Yep, she's not a flexible person at all and she was a bit of a control freak.
But at least Jordan has empathy and morals!
You're right - she'd make a frightening enemy!

hehe I really good at times to have a sense on some people, not always though, you did her with such expression that made me think that way about her, good frighten first impression for people that read here 

wow control freak? didn't have another control freak here? XD

yeah, Jordan laugh and make fun at times, by what I see of her, a very delightful kind of person to be friend with, I guess not have any kind of person that hates her :3

I for sure don't want her as a enemy, or not any of my characters XD
