Elaine's changing eye color

posted by ATMachine on - last edited - Viewed by 828 users
So... not that I'm complaining or anything, but why have Elaine's eyes changed color from blue to green?

Her eyes were blue in the VGA version of MI1:

And blue again in CMI:

Now they're green:

So why the change?

Perhaps Elaine's TMI look was partly based on Steve Purcell's MI movie Elaine design (with green eyes)?

    I'd imagine that it was a color coordination thing -- doing what looked good. It's a continuity goof, I suppose (though as pointed out, her eye color has changed before), but hopefully a forgivable one.

    It's ok... but Guybrush really should have noticed. Typical man!

    I forgive you, too. Happened before, no big, just made me wonder.

    Like he noticed her different voice in EMI? :p
  • I like her green eyes better.... When I painted her I gave her green eyes too.

    Looks like she's had just about every eye colour there is to have!

    I like the green eyes / red hair combo. Telltale did a great job with their main character designs.
  • Its possible she had them changed with a minor voodoo curse.... you can explain anything with voodoo.
