Wanted to make my magical girls more magical so I redesigned their outfits. Drew inspiration from tonnnnnns of magical girls, mostly those from the 60-80s.
I named them; Amina and her companion Batteau. Beatrice and her companion Harro. Aubrey and her companion Elsie.
They’re all 12 years old, and in the 6th grade. Amina is your typical snooty tween that wants to be a big kid and do teenager stuff like flirt with boys and do her nails but only so she can keep up her reputation as a cool kid. She’s secretly a nerd. Beatrix is kind and sweet and loves to draw. Her room is covered in boyband posters. Aubrey is really shy at school but when she goes home she loves to run and play in the mud with her brothers and sisters.
Characters from the novel Throne of Glass. Queen Elena and the creepy rotting guy from when Celaena got poisoned. That’s it!
Part of the reason why I chose this book to do for my term project in class was that the characters were really diverse. Yes there are a lot of pretty people. It’s a YA novel what do you expect? But there are uglies as well, and supernatural characters which makes it fun to draw :)
In honor of albinwonderland reblogging street harassment posts lately, I rebloged this minicomic I made a while ago.
Yeah. I’ve been sexually harassed on the street, just like almost every girl. It started as early as 15 years old and I was just walking home from high school. I would always feel like I was asking for it even though I wasn’t. Why anybody would catcall to a chubby, pimple-faced, conservatively-dressed teenager is beyond me. It happened most notably when I went through my “goth” faze, and wore cute blouses/dresses, tights and boots all the time. Eventually I had to change the way I dressed because I was, of course, asking for it.
Here is an accurate representation of me in high school.
Yes asking for it. I mean, this is the image of “slut that wants to be hit on by dirty old men in gardening trucks”. I’m being sarcastic or maybe I’m not. The point is, I changed the way I looked, eventually, because of the harassment. I blamed myself, my poor 15 year old self for the bad behavior of other people. I started wearing big sweaters, baggy pants, wearing less makeup, and guess what? It did nothing to deter the whistling. What I still don’t know, to this day, is why guys (and girls I guess) still do it? The catcalls. Has there ever been a positive reaction to a guy saying “nice titties, slut.” They had to be encouraged at some point but I don’t know a single girl that accepts that kind of behavior and actually likes it? Can we find these people and put them on an island?
