Mona is: + Friendly, charming, happy- Wanting to see the best of life + Kind but firm, very worldly and down-to-earth- Can be quite the leader + Secretly a hopeless romantic, with her own stash of sappy (but well written!!) novels. - Not immune to the judgmental looks and comments of others. - Can only tolerate so much of settling for less and compromising. - Easily stressed out or frustrated, sometimes short tempered, but bottles it all up
You want to stick around? (chuckle) Okay then, keep me company.
(┛◉Д◉)┛彡┻━┻ ┻━┻ /DOUBLE TABLEFLIP OF JOY AND I'M DONE. I'M SO DONE. FINALLY. DAYS BEFORE THE NEW YEAR. /collapses into a pile I didn't have a clue why mine took so long, but looking back on Ty's side, I realize I probably cluttered mine together twice as much with drawings and more text. Muhbad. I'm proud to say Mona's flavor text changed the most from her first version- for the better, as well. She's become more confident and focused in just the time between my Side A drawing and now, when she started out so gentle and angelic. Which I suppose you could say she is... Sometimes. Alas, I do feel bad to report that this Meet Me bio is really only Mona oriented. I have not designed any of her side characters, antags or otherwise... u///u; So you just get a lot of Mona looking pretty. Not too pleased with that, but I assure you, when the time comes, she will get all the fleshing out she needs.
She is definitely my favourite chary because I can relate o her on a certain level,I envy her, even. She's beautiful and despite being big (like myself) she loves herself. She also knows when to ignore the twig porcelain bitches (UNlike me)
I love this character! Despite being big, she's very beautiful and fashionable! Normally, I like to draw skinny characters... (SHAME ON YOU! //slaps self) But the introduction of Mona had made me appreciate body types and more.
And YES. Fashion industry is sometimes... "EVIL" for advertizing super skinny women...
Atta girl, Mona! Ignore those bitches! I bet they don't have enough calories to support their own health. (OOOOH! BURN!)
I used to also exclusively draw skinny characters as well, so this was a really good opportunity to explore more body diversity
And I definitely wanted her in fashion BECAUSE of the skinny-only (or "curvy only") sort of attitude they have about fashion.
And as an aside, she's just beautiful- you don't have to say 'despite' (her weight) I totally get that's not what you meant to say, it's hard for me to unlearn dialogue like that even now too. Just remember it for later!
Thank you very much! I bought a little name book I keep around, but you can google baby names too! I like babynames.com, babynamesworld.com, thinkbabynames.com, 20000-names.com for starters ! The rest is narrowing down your search and making a list of favorites. Or if you ever see or hear a name you like, write it down for safe keeping later somewhere. Hope it helps!
I have to say that Mona is one of my favorite characters of yours so far. She reminds me alot of my own character Courtney because they are both insecure about their bodies, very friendly, and oppstimistic.
