I'm not impressed enough with the suggestion to favor it over the current. The "wild card" character is the only one that's clear in the SOTTP pic; in the current, it's fairly clear that each one is represented; it's just a YMMV on who fits which role if you're not familiar with the cast.
Actually, the current could use a caption with the characters' names and roles to make that more clear.
I'm guessing not having anything to add means that you agree with Willbyr. I know I'm biased because I've seen SOTTP but I don't know how the characters can be confused for each other. You can't say they all look the same because they're dressed according to their personalities.
In the current, if it was clear that each one is represented it wouldn't be YMMV on who fits which role if you're not familiar with the cast. If we need a caption to tell us the character's names and roles it's Just a Face and a Caption.
Are you two talking about two different pictures? Willbyr was talking about the Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants picture so you're asking who's manish, sexy, and 'first one' in that, right Duck? As I said in my first post, I can tell that the one with the baseball bat in the current must be the manish/tomboyish one. Being able to tell only one out of four is pretty bad though.
I say the SotTP one just so the article doesn't describe "sexy" and "Really Gets Around" anywhere near people who look underage, even if thanks to the art style they're Older Than They Look.
EDIT: keep forgetting about CamelCase. argh.
I didn't know there was a name for CamelCase.
The sexy one is the tall blonde. The Woman in Black and red is the manish one. If by 'first one' you mean the sweet-naive girl, it's the Proper Lady like one with the light blue outfit, long skirt, long sleeves and high neckline.
Oh, you meant the first of what you said, not the first on the page. You don't see anyone who looks remotely manish? It's the one who's not in pink or baby blue. The streaks in her black hair also give her away. I would think most people would see that as punk and not traditionally sexy. The admirable one is in pink pants. I know admirable is difficult to see but you can be sure that she isn't manish so that helps to narrow it down.
I don't see all four temperaments in the Sisterhood picture - it looks more like sweet/naive, sexy/glamorous, sweet/naive, admirable-but-could-also-be-glamorous, from left to right to me.
That is slightly better than the current, which appears to be sweet/naive/possibly admirable, mannish, mannish, sweet/naive.
Seeing two roles in four characters is an explanation of how a picture doesn't fit. Maybe the Sisterhood pic isn't especially better than the current. If someone can find something that shows a lot of difference between the girls that would be helpful. They should have different clothes or be holding different objects. The admirable one is really difficult to show (as it varies so much) but the other three can be done clearly.
As I mentioned in the other discussion, the Four Girl Ensemble is represented to me best by ROD:TV (though I am not sure anyone has actually added it in the examples yet). I went looking for pictures that had all the Paper Sisters and Nenene. There were a few, but most of them did not show a lot of diversity in the characters. The best I could find was this one◊.
It has the Team Mom in the center and three other girls who at least have different expressions on their faces and clothes that speak a little to each of their personalities. It is not perfect, but it might do until we find a stronger collage of four other girls.
