Today during my work I was listening to video walkthroughs of Danger by Design, and pondered a question someone asked me about JJ Ling. I went searching for the answer, (and found it) but discovered concept art of the characters I hadn’t seen before! So I have to share them with you!
I love the diversity of our Nancy Drew characters! They are a mix of everything; cliche’s, stereotypes, stereotypes that are broken, characters with simple backstories and characters with complicated backstories. I love it all.
Jing Jing Ling is an interesting one – she has an Australian accent, is a plus-size model, but is of mixed race. In her notes for the game it just says to make her “exotic” looking, so the character designer combined many things for her look.
Minette, of course, is a quirky character. In the game notes for her, it says Minette’s original name was Tammy Burns. I’m not sure if this fact is even in the game, but it’s still cool!
Spoiler: if you have played the game, click here to view an extra picture of her concept art. 😉
Who’s art do you like best?
