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.......
Love

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

Amazing!! You are an absolute artist! Everything about this picture is just beautiful-- the body doesn't have horribly drawn limbs, the shading is amazing, the eyes and eyebrows give off perfect emotion, and for the eye that's showing, when I look at it, I can't look away; it's like the eye contains the universe within it-- and for every little detail in this, I can't make up my mind on what part of this master piece to stare at!! :iconsobeautifulplz:

ALSO, your new storyline sounds REALLY FANTASTIC! *u* I'm REALLY into conspiracies and fucked up societies (especially after doing an entire unit on it in gr 12. You totally should read 1984 btw, it's the BEST on that kinda shit!)
As all of your fans, I REALLY can't wait to see more of this idol manga~
I can just smell all the moe desu art I'll be seeing in my inbox :iconheplz:

I always love seeing original content from artists. Sure, their style can be pretty appealing and nice to look at, but I'm also eager to see their ideas and stories. I think that's probably why I don't draw fanart or do commissions very much as my motivation to draw comes from the inspiration of my own ideas.

That sounds awesome Ocean! ^__^ I know what it's like to start something and then redesign it and start alllll ooover! X_X I myself worked on a project, then figured I wanted to revamp the entire thing to make it more interesting. <3 I do love this picture though, it's so cute and the expression really feels like there's more to the story than what you see there. I hope you do get around to it!
