Additional Info: She's an only child so she basically gets what she wants, As confident as she is, she's mostly known for as harsh as it is, she will be 100% honest with you regardless if it hurts your feelings. She can be pretty rough sometimes and hard to get along with but she's an overall good person that will always stand up for what's right. If your an shy maiden who's getting bullied or being harassed she will step in to show them who's boss but she will grill you about being a target so she puts salt in wounds. She often gets “In trouble” for her mouth.
Character: Confident, Spicy, Intelligent, Kind Hearted, Strong sense of Justice, Rarely bites her tongue, Honest, Competitive, Both Dainty-Tomboyish
History: Bridgette is apart of a very prestigious family engaging in the best schools money had to offer and making few friends that she could call thus. Her mother is of french origin and her father is that of Haitian Origin.
while she loves her mother dearly. Her coldness towards her father is pretty evident and this is because her father in an desperate attempt to gain more publicity and sonority he has turned to the underground including blackmailing, illegal and corrupt business. She respects him as a father but not of a man. When her father was first starting out he made sure that he would do it the cleanliest way possible, but over the years his greed for more has turned him into a corrupt man whom she takes no part off.
The heartbreak, as she looked up to her father so, but in another matter she has a strong sense of justice and that's just something she cannot forgive not even from her own father. Should he turn over to do right she would accept him again in due time, but if he does not she will ignore him and look down on his corrupt acts that she is so strongly against.
Her mother has taken the good with the bad, and while she feels it is wrong for him to do such dirty things, screw over people, steal money and the like, it is her husband so she will stand by him regardless.
Such a weak...or perhaps, way to much of a submissive choice she has seen her mother make she feels a bit agitated by it. No matter how much you love someone and want the marriage to work you should never condone wrong. However, her mother does not see this as so and just lives with it. Bridgette is somewhat bitter at her mother for choosing a side but it doesn't bother her as much seeing as how that's just how she is and only people that want to change will do so so harping on it, would not do as much. With these feelings she does not speak many words to her father, the causally “Hello good day father” and other automatic words but other then that it's virtually not much.
Her father doesn't seemed bother by it, and if he does he doesn't show it. It seems even though he feels sorry about such things, he still chooses to do what he wants to do and so that will just force them on a different path, that may or may not intertwine.
Other Notes: She really adores sports including those of soccer, horseback riding, Fencing she is by far a Great Debater and other hobby includes Tea time, Story reading, Puzzles games, Stimulating Games.
She has little patience, for Negative people, Problem starters, Drama queens and Wrong-Doers.
Side Note: She once fell for a girl that was horribly wishy-washy and didn't know what she wanted. She finds herself not liking girls who can't make up there minds, and are fickle in regards to love and affection. She's cautious on who she falls for now. Although she's had many crushes she doesn't pursue all of them, rarely a little them unless she feels that it will work or at least won't be a waste of time.
Hello! I am going to base this critique solely on the drawing itself, rather than the character as you've described her in the description. first and foremost, I think that she is an interesting character! I like her design, and her body is very sexy. we don't often see such full-figured OCs, and I like that you took that into account when creating someone unique. There are a couple of ways that you could strengthen this piece, and I hope that I'm able to give you ample advice in order to do so. the first thing I would recommend is to study anatomy rigorously. your proportions aren't too terribly off, but some of the little mistakes draw attention to themselves and hence weaken the drawing. If we look at the hip area where they flare out from the waist, we see that it is asymmetrical, and a little unnatural. As well, the shape of the legs is off and the structure of the feet does not look realistic. A good way to fix this is to study anatomy, as I said before. I would like to challenge you to sit down for at least an hour a day and study, read books, and do gesture drawings/30 second drawings. when you do these excersizes it isn't necessarily for the sake of accuracy, but to get in the groove of drawing human bodies. try to draw angles that make you feel intimidated, but most of all try to understand the structure of the body. if you understand the underlying muscles, how joints work and so on then drawing bodies will be 100000x easier! note me if you want some material to help you study. studying anatomy also will help you to draw clothes that fall on the body realistically!
As far as the drawing technique goes, I see that you did this digitally. I don't know if you used a tablet, but if you only have a mouse then drawing digital line art is nothing short of rigorous. If you did use a mouse then it was probably even harder to get good proportions. but, whether using a mouse or a tablet it is VITAL to take your time. don't be afraid to undo lines that are incorrect. you may undo a line 30x before you get it perfect, but through practice it will become easier. let me know if you used a tablet, and I can give you more in depth advice. as far as using flat colors go, since this was a reference I don't think its necessary to lay down shadows, but if you're going for some sort of aesthetic appeal then i would recommend adding shadows. once again, study anatomy in order to know how to place shadows correctly.
lastly, one side note I wanted to give you is about making our character fit into this drawing without the white background attached. I don't know if you used photoshop, but if you did then you can select the magic eraser tool and then click on the white background around her and it'll disappear. or, what you could do is set the layer that Bridgette is on to multiply, which would also make the background clear, however since her dress is white it will show through so that probably isn't for best. All in all, this is a very nice picture and your character is interesting, so I hope you develop a comic with her or that you draw her more!
Thank you thank you~!! YEY<3 I can't wait! AHHHH I hope they can become good friends to~!<3 Well yeah~! ;3~! They can still find places were all of the girls from different schools meet up at one place.
IKR! Thank you on such a compliment!! WOW O//x//o!! THANK you so much. I Worked really hard to draw very curvy ladies ;x; because to many people draw not curvy ladies, and the same stick figure proportions, I want to draw different body types of women, because not everyone is like that! Lookit me ^^ Keep Practicing! You'll get it.
^-^! Thank youuuu<3 I willll we need more diversty in body languages oxo! I want to help encourage that. Not saying smaller people have lesser value but 99% of anime already has small body types, and the 1% is other body types D: Because they ignorantly portray "bigger" as not attractive, as not sexy, give them the short end of the stick and don't make them attractive -x-! which I find myself not liking, Japanese anime isn't diverse in ethnicity or body sizes, Once in a lifetime you will get Diversty here and there, but..that's rare -x-! Like Michiko No Hatchin, Or Cowboy Bebop, but these newer ones don't really show it either.
Thank you thank you for such the sweet compliment! ^^ You don't have to be a plump lady to only draw plump girls<3 I just hope you share the diversity as well in body types and different ethnicity, it's so lacking -x-!
HER UNIFORM AND HER HAIR ARE JUST FAR TOO CUTE AHHH ;A; i really like her back story... i think ill really enjoy her as a character, but im not sure if i met her irl id like her LOL but i love that you gave reasons for her personality traits... like you can see how she got to be like that from her mother and father. awesome job ~
THANK YOUUUUUUU ;A;!! Ahh I wanted everything to fit in with her personality because people don't just be a certain way just cause? lol It's events that happen in there life, that they grow into a personality trait or display.
HA. well, Character wise she is quite a card, and she would be quite the card too in real life, I would probably be her friend in RL.
YESSS<3 These are a plus for creating characters Thank you thank you
