I actually finished this like, 3 months agoish?? But I forgot to post it!;;
This is my character Arrow, re-designed, although, she has been even further redesigned since 3 months ago, lol... but if you want you draw her, this will still suffice as a reference for now. uvu
Her new name is Evie. I am creating a whole new series for the story formally known as "Carriers"! (Which was an original work I abandoned a couple of years ago 。┰ω┰。)

Re-posted from my Tumblr; more about my OCs and story:

All this talk about idols made me want to share my story I’ve been thinking about for awhile.
Some people who follow me might know of Arrow and my series ‘Carriers’. I’ve been thinking about this for awhile, but I’ve finally decided what I want to do with that story. ^v^
(I’m actually really nervous to put this out here but!…)

I have kept all the original characters of Carriers, but I am renaming them and their setting. The story is similar to Carriers in the sense that the main characters discover ‘government secrets’, I guess I could say.

The original setting of Carriers was a military setting. I still really love military settings and all that, but I don’t think it’s something I know enough about to draw an write a story for it. Guns, uniforms, bases, etc; the setting is still really cool to me but I am not very good at conveying it the way I want.

Obviously I’m very into cute fluffy idols. *uwu* So I have turned my main characters into an idol group.

The setting is now something of a dystopia. I want the story to revolve around the idea of a landmass/population similar to North America, having the same kind of culture and society of Japan (although, the world I am writing about is purely fictional).
Japan’s culture is very rich and unique, but there’s a lot of it I want to explore and bring to the light. It’s kind of a story I want people to think at first, “wow, this could be really cool [in real life]", but diving into the ‘behind-the-scenes’ of that culture and society, would make people think otherwise. As dystopian settings are.

The idol group is ‘Les Petites Fleurs’, which if I’m correct means ‘The Little Flowers’ in French. uwu (In turn, it's also the new name for the series)
They now have horns instead of cat ears, and are called Nymphs instead of Zoomorphs.

The story basically follows the girls’ idol lives as they discover government secrets within their society~! (?)

I don’t know when I will be able to start this story. I’ve honestly been meaning to for years, but I am usually busy doing work for other people so I can support my food and rent, so I don’t have time for personal work. But any time I get the chance, I’d love to.</i>

As I look at this image, the thought in my mind is to ask: Is Evie getting ready to jump away from me?  To bolt and run?  Why?

I like the image.......

This is stunning! I absolutely love the back-lighting on this, especially on her hair ^ ^ Gorgeous color palette as well!

This plot idea itself sounds absolutely epic, kinda like the Macross (Roboteck) series but darker (at least conspiracies-wise). I like the name change from Zoomorphs (which sounds kind of childish) to Nymphs (which sounds a lot more fantasy-like and mysterious) as well as the switch from cat ears to horns. I have to agree that Japanese culture is absolutely adorable, I love writing about it and sharing it with others (although it has its flaws, of course ;D)

tbh I chose zoomorphs because they were actually the scientific kind of name for that creature.. I hated the name too TT 7 TT;
but I guess fantasy is the way to go uvu
