She now has an official last name. Beznă, Romanian meaning: dark/gloomy/midnight.
Here is her everyday sort of look, inspired by a bit of RP. She was going with a classmate to get payment out of a vampire, so the Castlevania shirt is a subtle dig. It wasn't until they were on they're way that she learned that the particular vampire they were going to see was her own sister.
And, even though she's afraid of her sister... in an odd turn of events, she came out to her. I wasn't expecting it, the GM wasn't expecting it. I was in the character's head. She hadn't told ANYBODY that she was gay, so the secret was part of why she's so grumpy. (She comes across as a bit mean, so far.)
I'm loving this character so much! Though I'm going to *try* and render somebody else now. Lol. I've been bouncing between game stuff, so it must be time for another artsy piece, right?
I think the rapier is going to play a bigger part. Like, she's actually from outer space. I think maybe she was found with the sword, and when her adopted father gave it to her, it was because he understood it was part of her heritage. Maybe it will act as a focus for her powers. Could be cool. And gives me an excuse to render a glowy sword in the future.
Now, for the details. Obviously, I added the Castlevania art to the shirt. It's X-Fashion Sophisticated Jacket Outfit (Top) Jacket and boots are from Classic Bikers and Classic Bikers Two. The pants are from the Blue Angel for G3f and G8F from RPublishing. I opened up the base texture in GIMP, made it black and white, and then lowered the brightness to get a faded black denim look. I rather like how it turned out, myself.
The sword is Falcontruth's, again. This time with the included belt. This time I did the hilt a little different, not entirely with hot it turned out in the last one. I think this is better. Vintage Enamal shaders for the scabbard, and gold shader from Homestyle Shaders Two.
I found a neat silhouette of Dracula's Castle from Castlevania online, and turned it red. Then added in the Castlevania logo. I wasn't sure it would look good, but now I want a T-Shirt like this, lol.
Should be up to commenting later today or tomorrow. I know, for a while there I was leaving comments on EVERYTHING! If the sitemail was working, I probably still would. The breakdown, however, has given me a chance to step back a bit, and maybe that's not such a bad thing.
Love to you all. Hope you are having a wonderful day. And if you aren't? There's lots of pretty art here to look at!
P.S. The GM's reaction to her "coming out" was excellent. He already knew that she was gay, but I didn't think it was going to come up in game. It's set in 1993, which is a lot less enlightened than today, let me tell you. As she conversed with her sister, she just... couldn't keep the secret anymore. She still hasn't said anything about her powers, but she did tell her sister that she was gay. It played out over several tense moments as she worked up the nerve
And me... well, the GM does come from a conservative family. I'm sweating bullets because I don't want to make him uncomfortable. Yet, I'm also in the character's head and can't really stop it. I swear... I'm not role-playing. I'm channeling spirits. Her sister just says, "I'm a vampire. You really think that kind of thing bothers me any more? Life is too long not to have fun. I thought you were going to tell me you have powers or something..... But I will say boys are way easier to play." She laughs.
Like... pretty much perfect response. And we talked about it later. He surprised himself, and that? THAT is awesome. Because, folks. It's a mark of progress. Pretty sure if that scene played out and it really was 1993, I'd probably be shown the digital door.

Thanks! A girl's gotta look good.
She's about to graduate from a boarding school for the scions of villains, politicians, and lawyers. She, however, has no intention of getting into any of those fields. Just trying to keep her head down the best she can.

She is looking seriously badass here, and I love her attitude! And that's one classy blade she's toting; you can tell even in the scabbard. And she's bringing back big hair! Good for her! 😄👍
Most excellent work on her, my friend!

the color of the hair contrasts with the color of her skin, which makes the character even more attractive, pretty

Your characters and their detailed back stories are always a joy to read. The way they come to life for you is wonderful. It would seem there’s a bit of us that always gets transferred into our characters. At least for me that is the case. Well done.
