Courtney ref by artbirchly Courtney ref by artbirchly

Some more ref for my OC, Courtney. Would love to do a story for her at some point but I don’t know when or how oh nooo. But yeah, general background meanwhile, some of which I've alluded to before:

The Brushmarke family of energy tycoons has accrued impressive wealth and legacy over the years, along with a fair bit of resentment. No matter what lengths modern skunks go to to avoid their well-known pungency, they cannot avoid the prejudice of other animals… except by avoiding the animals themselves. Hence, the Brushmarkes are a lonely lot.

Courtney’s older brothers are jolly, lazy jokers. Her mother is a beauty-fixated depressive, and the less said about her father, the better.

Like all teenagers, Teenage Court knew she was different, even if she couldn’t say why. Inside there was a sweetness and curiosity that she had no model for nurturing. After learning some hard lessons about what being different could cost her, she set aside her yearning for connection and focused on building on an independent life.

So it was that with the lessons of her mother and the power of her name that she broke onto the modeling scene. She learned that the body she’d been ashamed of could be a highly effective tool. One of her greatest coups was her own successful line of perfume, a blow she intended to strike against the prejudice her species faced.

Now in her mid-twenties, the fear and resentment her father gifted her still hides inside, holding her back, chilling her blood. The more success she attains for herself, even as she prepares to leave her family behind, the more she awakens to her own frightening emptiness. If it makes her the first in her family, she intends to fight it and win.

Very nice work! I love how you've retained such realistically skunkish proportions and details while still making her anthropomorphic! Is this through simply trying to follow the Zootopia character style? That tail just doesn't quit! @.@ Silly wolf.

Wonderful, if somewhat tragic background for Courtney, having her own injustices of species perceived by others simply because skunks are stereotyped for foul odours. She's akin to Nick in adapting to that philosophy of "if the world thinks we stink, I'll just have an attitude that stinks even worse so they won't ever mess with me." Her taking up smoking is a mix of that unfortunate destructive habit (if they even exist in Zootopia), along with the unpleasant odour that tobacco creates, adding to her image. It's depressing that, deep down, she longs for something better, but is backed up against the wall in the face of stereotypical adversity of others. Hopefully she will be able to find others who look past her species' traits that cause most to back away, and to see what goodness may still linger, and help bring it out.
