Summary TLDR - I have finally found an official fashion style for one of my oldest characters and because of it, I have finally solidified her personality and it's been SO FRIGGIN FUN getting to re-know her. SHE FEELS LIKE A BRAND NEW CHARACTER!!! I'm about to launch into a giant story for of her creation to the point we're at right now so if you wanna know more about her pls read on - if not, please just enjoy!!!

-------------------

Chelsea has been a character of mine since 2006. Starting as a Code Lyoko fancharacter, she has now developed almost 10 years later into a person of her very own with her very own story. While the story itself takes place in a world more akin to Firefly in terms of fashion and technology, I currently have AUs with her where I roleplay with her and write her in "modern" our world setting.

Over the years I have struggled to work with her as the character she was initially. When I made her, I had a really base example of what made a "cool" female character so Chelsea was angry, social, flirty, she hit people when she was mad at them, she was easy to pick on, she was mouthy and she was stubborn. She'd give off mixed signals to the boy she liked, and only seemed to be peaceful when she was running, saving the world, or one-on-one with someone. While all of these traits are interesting and can make a good character, they were honestly just traits I had stitched together without any real thought or motivation behind her actions.  I couldn't connect with that person anymore. Even with the new world she's in currently and the new characters that she interacts with, it was still hard to connect with her when I was keeping all of those personality traits in mind.

It wasn't until I started seeing photosets of Kristen Stewart and finding the inspiration for Chelsea's fashion that I decided to really work on it - that I decided I could work on it. The journey was fun and now I'd love to re-introduce you to my baby as she is now - shy, socially awkward, hates PDA, reserved, kind, empathetic, playful, etc. 

--------------------

OKAY I ACTUALLY REALLY HATE LISTING TRAITS because I feel like they do a poor sum up of a person and that's only a small package so there's always gonna be more you wanna share but YEAH. HERE SHE IS.

I also took the opportunity to solidify her features. She's had the upturned nose a while, but I had never drawn her with her dimples or with her trademark blush (this is how Faustus nicknames her sweetcheeks for Pete's sake!) or biting her lip (another trademark since I made her. So I was really excited to do that.

THANK YOU IF YOU READ ALL THIS LMAO I JUST NEEDED TO SHARE. But yeah, I love her, I'm so excited to take her story from here on out and I'm really pumped to draw even more!

Ugh I missed this man so SO MUCH. I adore him.

I had fun lining these in my sketchbook and adding color. Also you get a look at "Dante vision" or what he sees since he's a necromancer.

I'll talk more about that some other time though.

FOR NOW PLEASE JUST ENOY MY HANDSOME MAN I LOVE HIM

Someone really needs to invent a tablet pen you can "contact" or "call" by pressing a button on the tablet itself. It'd certainly make it easier to find when they inevitably go missing. 8|

Sorry Bee, I know that reminds you of that OC but it's 4 in the morning and I can't think of anything else. :<

ANYWAYS THIS IS A PICTURE OF ELLIEL AND NAELIA THAT I DID TRADITIONAL INKS FOR WHEN Tyshea and Ai-Bee were visiting me for a couple weeks. I threw some colors on it because I'm obsessed, I know there's anatomy issues but YEAH I YEAAAAH. I think it's cute.

You know, one of the most inspiring things for me to do is to look through my photobucket. I started that thing when I got a deviantART and it is packed to the BRIM full of WIPs of huge pieces or sketches and drawings that made it here. Looking through my old stuff is kind of exciting for me because I remember what it was like to be that friggin excited over a piece and to look at how ambitious I was because I would just throw myself at stuff that was way beyond my skill level. Stuff didn't always turn out that well, but I don't think I would even be where I'm at if I hadn't done that kinda stuff.

I feel like I'm starting to get back into that lately? I feel ambitious. I feel like if I try something, even though it intimidates me, I can still do it, ya know?

I finished the color meme challenge this year. I finished Inktober (didn't post everything cause I wasn't pleased with it but STILL). Started a kiss meme challenge. I have played with new styles a lot this year and completed a lot of work and characters designs that I didn't know I was capable of doing.

I'm looking forward to another year of doing this you know?

I'm going to kick ass.
