|First Character Design|
|Background 2 (Nightime*)|
I like drawing fat, brown people, so that's how I came up with my first character. She doesn't have a name, just a random girl. She is missing her left arm and lives near a dock, which is where she spends a lot of her time. I think I've set this to take place during the summer, otherwise she'd have better things to do than sit on the dock all day. The first background I've posted is during the day, so she's wearing a prosthetic arm. However, at night (the second background) she doesn't wear the arm, I guess since that's when she sleeps.
The second character came up because I like to draw mermaids a lot. I needed a villain, so I thought that a giant angler fish would be perfect for that. The story is that this angler fish usually eats mermaids, and over time its lure has evolved to look more like a human/mermaid face.
The overall story is that the tides got unusually high that night, the angler fish was caught in the tides which is why it's at the surface of the water, and the girl just so happened to be at the dock that night (being unable to sleep). It's not the best, or most realistic story, but I don't think I can really do any better. After learning more about angler fish I don't think that any angler fish would ever be caught in a situation where it would be at the surface of water (unless dead).
