More new characters

Here is another Young and Old comparison set drawings of some more consistant characters. Ginger of corse is in here. Not much changes with her except having children brought her body down to a confortable sag. What woman doesn't loose her pep through life, even the happiest of ones?

Now the two other characters are best excamples of background characters that I've given a little more depth. Sadly these two don't have names yet either. I have quite a few characters that I havn't felt like giving names yet but usually most people know who I'm talking about (it's sad when I have a name of a character and people don't know who I'm talking about). For now I'll called them Joe and FiFi

Joe is like a two tone Fry (furturama), just a normal guy hanging around a bunch of freaks. He would see Rokko and his friends running around town causing trouble and just wanted to be apart of it. When his friends and family ask why he hangs around such crazy people he just says "They make me laugh!" Occassionally he get involved with Rokko schemes but ends up getting in trouble in the end. When WW1 started, Joe was the only one of the boys to get drafted into the war. Tooki and Gilbur were 4F'd because of deformities, unlike Rokko they wanted to go off to fight. Rokko and Crikkit did everything they could to get out of being drafted and to a point of fakeing thier deaths. When Rokko heard that Joe was drafted he gathered all the guys together to go out to Europe to save Joe from the germans. They hired a captain to take them to Europe but they were attacked by a Krakken along the way. With great luck Rokko servived but got separated from his friends but desided to go look for Joe on his own. With Crazy luck Rokko stubbled into a battlefeild were Joe was stationed at...Right in the middle of a air raid. So here comes Rokko stumbbling into the trenches and dragging Joe to "Safety". After many arugements about patriotic duty and "saving ones own ass", Joe left with Rokko over the French contry side to find Rokko's missing friends. It wasn't long before the army found Joe and Rokko and court marshell'd them both. They were tacken to an army base where they ran into all of Rokko's lost friends, who had been picked up by the French Navy and tacken to the same base. There, they were all put up as entertainment, and met up with FiFi.
FiFi doesn't talk much, she laughs and yells but mostly she doesn't talk (probally because she doesn't speak english well). Originally I was going to have Rokko met Ginger while in Europe but I desised that this would be a better chance to introduce FiFi. While Joe is 18 FiFi is about 16-17 when they 1st met her. She did like Rokko alot at the time and when Ginger came into the picture she was jelious but she got along better with Joe. Even when Rokko was womanizing he never once tried to go after FiFi, she would hit him and drop heavey things on him while giggling. He didn't get the idea that she liked him at all. After a while her desire for him died and she fell in love with Joe. The two of them are the oldest looking of all of Rokko's friends. Not Sure why they aged more then the others over the years but it's always nice to have old looking characters.
