How did you visualize Jarraba?

Post by ButterscotchCherrie » 03 Jan 2018, 11:21

I didn't have a clear visual image of him when he first appeared, but once he turned out to be more benevolent, he fully took on the form of Shrek in my mind's eye. This was partly because his good side was revealed along with his wife and family, and I totally visualized Cerrinity as Fiona. Anyone else?

Yes! I thought it was random and I was the only one!

I couldn't really picture him at all. He was just big and tall and non-human to me.

I believe that this character needs more depth. I could not identify with him at all. :techie-studyinggray:

I kind of visualized him as Hagrid, though the image of Shrek would be funny too.

I could visualise him as something similar to the big friendly giant. That's my best way to visualise him. Big, tall and something one needed a special type of imagination to think about

I totally agree, now that you say it. It is a good comparison.

I visualize him as a friend and a great companion who will always be there for help. I also predict of such friends in my life

I kind of pictured him like Grawp, Hagrid's half-brother from the harry potter movies. Big tall, intimating to look at but fiercely loyal and a real softie when it comes down to it.

It was blurry at first, to envision him, but as his character was revealed more and more, it became easy.

The Big Friendly Giant was the comparison I developed as I read. I can see the Hagrid comparison now that it's been mentioned.
