Look familiar?

Ehem...I was watching Sister Hood of the Traveling Pants (first movie) and I couldn't help but notice one of Tibby Rollins' (Amber Tamblyn) outfits resembled very much to Gwen's. The Blue and Green shirt were exact! Call me overly observent or just plain old obsessed, but I couldn't help question whether or not Gwen's persona was based after that of Ann Brashares' Tibby Rollins

Good eye Reina Mai!
Not sure about the attitude of Tibby -- but Todd was definitely inspired by Tibby's costume when he was designing way back when the show was still called Camp TV. You might notice that Beth looks a little bit like America Ferrera too -- Ugly Betty hadn't even come out out yet -- but trailers at the time showed a character who's attitude was very similar to what was being written for Beth. Designers are always looking for visual clues that help describe a character instantly. Todd does lots of research before he draws his characters.

That's REALLY cool. You should show us what the other characters designs and personalatys were based off of.

That's really interesting! Ugly Betty is a lot like Beth now that you mention it. Trent's always reminded me of Jake Ryan but I can be totally off on that one. I know Chris's design came from Jeff Probst but he likes to talk about Ryan Seacrest a lot doesnt' he?

Todd just reminded me that Beth's visual design was mostly based on Drew Barrymore's character in Never Been Kissed -- maybe with a pinch of Ugly Betty

Hey, this is actually really cool! And Beth's character does remind me a bit of Ugly Betty...also, I'm wondering if you could post Camp TV scenes, or at least the colored-in Camp TV character designs. Or maybe Camp TV locations? =P
I hope you post something Camp TV-ish. Please respond.

Wow, they're very simmilar indeed ^_^. And is true, Beth kinda reminds me of Betty: The attitude, the appearance, the fact that both end up paired with a handsome guy...

I'd love to see more of these if there are any. These are great. <3 Love spotting the similarities in between not only how they look but their personalities. Post more please?

I always though that Gwen's design was based on Rogue from X-Men Evolution
