The Phoenix
Oh, I started as an ember
Who was meant for kerosene
And now I'm raging like a fire, burning up
Through everything I see

Phoenix isn't her real name. She got it from her habit of jumping on flaming pirate ships, completely wiping out the crew, and then leaving unscathed. Casually. She may also have a slightly unsettling love of fire (that clearly doesn't come from the author at all).

Do... do you know how hard it is to find good tutorials/references for shading dark skin? And then vitiligo, on top of that? I mean I'm kind of pleased with how I did, but honestly I think I could do better. I just... ugh. Also, dreadlocks! Not pleased with how I drew those, either. Oh well.

I'm gonna try and draw one of these up for each of the main four PoV characters. We'll see how far I get, especially since I don't have that clear of an idea on one of them's appearance.

Phoenix is one of the four PoV characters in One Siren's Soul, a work in progress novel by yours truly! If you're interested in finding out more, let me know! (I will take any excuse to talk about my book, so please do. o-o)
I took this as an excuse to practice writing my characters, so... 'tis very long, my apologies. ^^'

1. Pick one of your OC's
2. Fill in the questions/statements as if you were the chosen OC.
3. Tag at least 3 people to do this meme

Character used: Celestine Martínez from One Siren's Soul (Also Phoenix! Because Celestine wouldn't answer anything otherwise~)

        Elbow propped up on the table's surface, her chin in her palm, Celestine eyed the little glowing device distrustfully. She poked it.
        Flinching back when the screen flickered alight, she clung to the back of the chair to prevent herself from falling, hissing loudly.

1. What is your name?
        Gaze wide, she stared incredulously at the display as it spoke forth. She blinked and swiftly recovered, eye narrowing to a slit.
        She growled, "And why should I tell you that?"
        "Oh come on, C, just answer the darned thin'." Phoenix leaned up against the door frame a few meters away, her only response to the other's glare a smirk. The smaller of the two shifted her jaw before whipping back around to the screen.
        "Fine," she huffed, "Allison Raines. 'S not like it's actually any of your busine--"
        "Yer real name."
        "... Celestine Martínez."

2. Do you know why are you named that?
        "'Cause the celestial heavens are just as pretty as she i--"
        "THESE QUESTIONS ARE NOT FOR YOU." Phoenix rolled her eyes as Celestine lowered her head, scowling, attempting to hide the dark blush spreading across her face behind her scarf. After a short pause to recover, Celestine sighed, "I was given the name likely for my eye colour. It's also just a Spanish name, and I'm Spanish, so..."

3. Are you single or taken?
        Celestine squinted. "What kind of questio--"
        "I'd say she's taken," Phoenix interjected assuredly. Celestine gave her a curious look.

4. Have any abilities or powers?
        "That also is none of your business." (OOC: I'd answer here but that's a pretty big spoiler! You'll have to wait for the book. ^^)

5. Stop being Mary Sue.
        Celestine blinked, expression blank. "What is with these weird English phrases?"
        "Actually, I ain't got a clue what this one means, either."

6. What's your eye colour?
        Phoenix chuckled, "The prettiest blue-grey. Like the swirlin' colours in the clouds of a great storm."
        "You're making me sick."

7. What's your hair colour?
        "That... depends." Celestine hesitated, reaching up to twist one of her dark curls around her finger. "Dark brown. Probably."

8. Have any family members?
        "Yer bein' real curt there, ain'tcha?"
        "I have nothing else to say, here."

9. How about pets?
        Celestine paused, glancing back towards Phoenix. "Does Wysote count?"
        Phoenix laughed, "I'd 'spose so, at this point!"

10.  That's cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don't like.
        "She ain't right kiddin', either. Well--" Phoenix cocked her head, a wide smirk crossing her face. "--almost. That ain't includin' everyone, now, izzit?"
        "Yes. I hate everything and everyone."
        "Ye wound me, Celestine. Ye really do."

11. Do you have any activities/hobbies that you like to do?
        "Not doing this." Phoenix raised an eyebrow, prompting her to continue. Celestine sniffed, crossing her arms. "Okay, well. Maybe... writing up new schematics? I work with metal and magic, inventing new things. That's a hobby, right?"
        "That's what we call work, but... that's prolly the best yer gonna get fer an answer."

12. Have you ever hurt anyone in any way?
        An eerie smile split Celestine's face as she tilted her head. "What do you think, hmm?"

13. Ever... killed anyone?
        "No one that didn't deserve it."
        Phoenix's soft tone, her gaze distant, clashed completely with the atmosphere Celestine's statement caused. "Kinda hard not to, when yer dealin' with pirates, unfortunately."

14. What kind of animal are you?
        "Are you... are you trying to say that I'm some kind of animal?" Celestine snapped, the teeth she bared pointed like fangs. Phoenix stepped forward, raising a hand in alarm.
        "Whoa! Whoa, no C, I think they're askin' what ye would be. Ye know... if ye... weren't human...?" Celestine huffed, crossing her arms, gaze down to the side.
        "I'm not an animal," she grumbled quietly. "I dunno."
        "Well, there is that thin' Dio calls ye." Celestine's eye widened.
        "No. No! That is not a th--"
        Phoenix brought two loose fists up to her cheeks, splaying her fingers openly and away before making a gesture like she was pulling two strings from the edges of her mouth, smirking all the while. Celestine glared, seething in her seat. She hissed.
        "'M not a 'hissy cat'..."

15. Name your worst habits.
        "Not sleepin'. Not eatin'." Phoenix wobbled her head from side to side, considering other possibilities. She shrugged, glancing down at a not-very-amused Celestine. "Ye know, ye should really try it sometime, havin' a proper sleep schedule, a proper diet. Might make ye less crabb--"
        "Those are choices, not habits."

16.  Do you look up to anyone at all?
        Neither of them spoke at first, Phoenix's smirk obvious and Celestine's glare cold.
        "I'd say she looks up t--"
        "You say another word, it will be your last."
        (Celestine is ~150 cm (4'11). Phoenix is ~205 cm (6'9). Make of this what you will.)

17. What is your sexuality? Are you straight? Gay? Bi?
        "What? What does this..." Celestine stared at the screen, rolling her eyes as she glanced away in confused annoyance. "Well, I'm certainly not gay. This is just about the most boring thing ever, why would I be?"
        ("Gay" to someone from the 1700s would mean something quite different! In reality, Celestine actually is pretty gay: in technical terms I would say she's gynephilic? Maybe? Phoenix is pan.)

18.  Do you go to school?
        "I finished my schooling a long time ago."

19. Ever want to get married and have kids one day?
        "That is...! Absolutely! NONE of yoUR BUSINESS."
        Phoenix stepped closer, leaning down beside Celestine's chair with a cocked head and a wide smirk. "That ain't a no~" Celestine's face was almost entirely hidden in her scarf. That didn't hide the vivid blush.
        "It's not a yes, EITHER!"

20. Do you have any fangirls/fanboys?
        Celestine had yet to recover from the previous question. Phoenix answered instead, pulling up a chair to sit beside her.

21. What are you most afraid of?
        "Nothing," the bundle of scarf vaguely shaped like a head grumbled, curls of brown falling from the highest folds.
        "Aww, yer not gonna be sappy and say 'losin' me'?" Celestine lowered the scarf enough to reveal her narrowed eye, returning Phoenix's smug gaze with a frigid glare.

22. What clothes do you usually wear?
        "Dresses and scarves are the easiest. Unfortunately, it means everyone mistakes me for a little girl." Celestine rubbed her cheek, her gaze drifting down to the side. "Though, from prior experience I've also found they're not the best for being on a... a ship, so in that case I wear your usual deck boy's things." She shrugged. "I don't care much about my clothes. As long as they cover my neck and arms, and aren't too tight, they're fine."

23. What's one food that tempts you?
        Celestine closed her eye in thought, murmuring dreamily, "Good food. Mmmm... One? Pancakes are good. Phoenix's pancakes are amazing."
        "Oh, so ye like me pancakes, but not me?" Celestine's response was a simple, slow nod, her smile pleasant. Phoenix chuckled, rolling her eyes.

24. Am I annoying you?

25. Well, it's still not over yet!
        Celestine opened her eye to present the screen an absolutely murderous glare.
        "How wonderful."

26. What class are you (low/middle/high)?
        Phoenix smirked. "I believe stealin' as a form 'a income means 'low'."
        "It's not stealing. It's borrowing. And if I just so forget to give it back, it's their fault for not reminding me."

27. How many friends do you have?
        "Friends are unnecessary and a risk," Celestine stated coldly. Phoenix winced.

28. What are your thoughts on pie?
        A small smile appeared on Celestine's face as she gently rubbed the sides of her arms. "Pie is... good. Good food is good." Phoenix cocked her head.
        "Ye really like yer food, don'tcha?"
        "So why don'tcha eat more, huh?"
        "... Because. Who has time for eating? I'm working all the time."
        "... 'Xactly me point."

29. Favourite drink?
        Celestine flinched. Phoenix winced.
        "I am not answering this."
        "That's... fair..."

30. What's your favourite place?
        "Somewhere dry. Far away from water. Maybe a desert. I hear those are nice." Phoenix tilted her head.
        "Ye know... a desert'd prolly kill ye, right?"
        "Even better."

31. Are you interested in anyone?
        "I'm most interested in this being over."
        Phoenix simply sighed.

32. That was a stupid question.
        "Yes! Now you're understanding."
        "They said it first."

33.  Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean?
        Celestine's gaze was wide as she stared frozen at the screen. She flinched when Phoenix's hand set gently on her shoulder, lowering her head as her eye flicked away.
        "Can we just..." Her voice was small, barely audible. "... Move onto the next question...?"
        "Yeah," Phoenix replied softly, "Yeah, we can do that."

34. What's your type?
        "Type of... what?" Phoenix gave Celestine's confused expression a glance before winking at the display.
        "Me." Celestine's typical self was back. She curled her lip, irritated in her bewilderment.
        "There are types of you?"

35. Camping or outdoors? 
        "Can I just... not be outdoors? Is that an option? I'd choose that."
        "That ain't one 'a th--... nevermind."

36. Any fetishes? 
        "No. Most definitely not." Celestine's face was darkened red with blush, her eye wide with disgust. "NO! No." Phoenix shook her head gently, chuckling.
        "How d'ye know that word, but none 'a the others?"
        "For... for reasons! It doesn't matter!"
        The screen flickered once before fading out entirely. Celestine blinked in disbelief.
        "That. That was the last question!?"

The Green-Eyed Sea Witch

Endlessly lost from dusk till dawn
Orphan before you were ever young
By crawl lights lead you on and on
Breathing in worlds that you don't belong

Dione Nikolaeva, aka the edgy sea witch that just wishes she could be left alone to write poetry all day.

Something new to try and kick me out of a pretty bad art slump, let me know what you think! I drew heavy inspiration from one of my absolute favourite artists, Laura Hollingsworth, creator of The Silver Eye. You can check out some of the tutorials I used here!

Dio's eyes are purposefully highly unrealistic for magic story reasons, this is her with her natural colour. You can assume that there will be a lot of character art from OSS from me in the future and you would likely be correct.
... Sorry. ^^'

Dione is one of the four PoV characters in One Siren's Soul, a work in progress novel by yours truly! If you're interested in finding out more, let me know! (I will take any excuse to talk about my book, so please do. o-o)

They/Them pronouns please. ^^

Just a starting artist who draws and writes in their free time. None of my works are going to be especially good, for I'm more here for improving my skills and learning from the more experienced.

I'm currently really into the show Steven Universe, so don't be surprised if a lot of my art has to do with that.

Also. Dragons are amazing. I love dragons. And space. Space is awesome.

And... obviously clouds. I know quite a bit about clouds... So floofy. o.o

Cloudy out.
