First of all, thanks for all of your support. Some people have accused me from thinking this whole thing up, just as some kind of sick way to gain attention.

My only intention was to inform people why I wouldn't be posting messages/art for the next few weeks (or whatever time it takes them to get the issue solved).

Characters in General
A character's look should already say something about them. Everything from color to how they stand and move to the kinds of shapes used. 
As some basic stuff for starters, a good-hearted/protagonistic character shouldn't have a ton of aggressive angles and points in them. Most main characters are either round or at least boxy. Vise-versa, an antagonistic/bad character should look like they are dangerous. 
Optimus Prime vs. Megatron
Sturdy and Strong 
vs. Sharp points galore

I have nothing to fill this journal with. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I just hated the idea of people looking at the other one the moment they stepped onto my page, but I don't want to delete it for whatever reason.
