Anyway another early Guess Who for :iconoc-training:. Even though I was working pretty slowly for my standards lol. I gave myself shortcuts like allowing a liberal use of the line and curve vector tools in SAI, hence the inconsistencies with the lineart. BUT THEN. I also decided to do colored lineart and took the time to painstakingly color the separate sections in. All this is made even more difficult with both my brain and my body working against me as of late. Dealing with feelings of inferiority and inadequacy that hit in full force is not fun but eh I'll get over it. That and some other irrational thoughts and feelings which on their own are enough of a bitch but coupled with the fact that I've been inexplicably tired for the past week makes shit all the more frustrating. But again. I'll deal. #justquarantinethings I guess? Lol.

And I've got a bunch of doubts as to whether or not this is the best way to tackle the prompt, and throughout the drawing process I've been tempted to start over with something else. But I finished it anyway, and I think I've exhausted myself on this piece enough that I'm ready to move onto other things and not waffle on the quality of this particular drawing. And I can be content that this is miles better than my poor excuse of a Guess Who for Lev last round. And it's better than Lena's as well. Also I seem to have a running theme of making all my pieces have poor lighting lol. I'll do something fun another time I swear.

Okay, I think I've run my mouth enough for now. I'll say more once I post the profile task. And no, that one's not happening early lol. Oh yeah, enrollments for Round 12 are still open and will be open until June, so if anyone wants to join in there's still time. The group is great if you've got a character in need of development or if you just want to get your character out there and meet other content creators.

Update: the reveal.

Family is clearly important to her. I assume the framed picture is her with her parents and her older sibling while the pictures on the cork board are of her friends. All of which would remind her why she's working such late hours on a personal project.. If hacking into sensitive information and releasing it to the public can count as a personal project lol. She looks like she's counting down to something, either something work related that happens every 3 days, or something hacking related, or maybe just something medical related. She seems to be taking a biometric reading of some kind which could be the result of whatever coverup she's trying to expose.

Family is definitely important to her! And yes, the pictures are of family and friends. She's not really counting down to anything in this picture, and there's nothing medical related here. She's a hacker working against the government.

Alright, I'm gonna guess that Jisoo is a Korean vigilante who spreads news of cover ups and other shady government things but they are always written off by the media as fake news. They are from a sci-fi setting where the earth is a little farther away from the sun so it takes 42 days for a month to pass instead of 30. It appears they are planning to go from cyber hacker attacks to actually breaking into a server room. I wonder what they have planned for the digital news world this time. As for their character, they are a hyper organized person with an inconsistent schedule at their day job. They seem to have several friends who they like to take unsuspecting photo's of.

Jisoo is a Korean hacker. Yes, she is working against the government, and the media is discrediting her actions. The setting is actually a planet that orbits a bit closer to its parent star than the Earth orbits the sun. Jisoo is an organized person, and she does like taking photos of her friends. Thanks for guessing!

That's so cool that you even though about the location of her planet to her sun! So, why is she working against the government? Did they do something to her?

Well she's definitely largely motivated by personal reasons, but her long term goal is to change how the administration is run, particularly with regards to her people.

Really nice perspective! It's very well done x3

She seems really interesting and I look forward to learning more about her~

So many little details! Very impressive! I'd guess that Jisoo is some kind of biohacker, who is working incognito to hack government secrets. The photos on her desk and bulletin board make me wonder if perhaps she has a personal vendetta she is working from, maybe the people she is hacking hurt her family or friends? Perhaps she has some sort of special genetic ability to connect to the databases. I'm excited to learn her story!

Thank you! Jisoo is indeed a hacker, though she's just a regular human with no special edge. Her motives are linked to her family, namely her older brother and their late parents.

I love the details of the scene! She appears to be a talented hacker ready to take down a group or government, possibly because of what they did to her family.

Thanks! She is indeed a hacker, and her family is indeed tied to her motivations.

A hacker gathering information for a mysterious, nameless organization. She has a family which could be a motivator for why she does what she does. Organized and intelligent, Jisoo is working hard to either reveal or protect something...

Yeap, pretty much!

My guess is... she's a student of some kind, either medical or technical. Or... she's working to uncover a big conspiracy.

Mm ... not quite.

Ooh, I love the perspective of the shot here! Excellent job with this piece! Jisoo works in technology, more specifically, she is a hacker. The mask is interesting to note as it also appears in the news article too, so I'm guessing she's a vigilante hacker with another identity. The pictures on her desk and hanging up on the corkboard are photos of family and friends. She also appears to have a family with her husband and she's a mother of two. The calendar is a peculiar detail with it's 6-day-weeks, which makes me wonder if this setting is on another planet or another universe.

Thank you! Jisoo is indeed a hacker, though vigilante isn't quite the right descriptor for what she does. She's not a mother of two, but given her role in her friend group she may as well be sometimes. The setting is a different planet in a different star system, though I wouldn't really say a different universe. Unless by another universe you mean a fictional version of our universe.

Jisoo is an mother of two, and possibly quite adept at technology... In fact I would say given by the mask and the matching mask on the news that she is a hacker of sorts. (A wonderful perspective you drew this in BTW) She's got the streets and a server room mapped out so she's going to strike again.

I would say she could be a freelancer but I think that would be a reach. (Photographer maybe)

Lol she's not actually a mother of two, though I guess given her role in her friend group she could probably think of that as being a mother of two. She's definitely a hacker, though! Thanks for guessing.

Jisoo is a busy person. A professional. Everything in her environment is neat and tidy, her life is well organised. That makes me think of anankastic personality a bit (if You don't know what I mean look up here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obsessive%E2%80%93compulsive_personality_disorder

I'm a medicine student planning to become a psychiatrist, so I see psychiatry nearly everywhere, sorry ;)).

Back to Jisoo, she is very skillful with computers, she is a hacker. Now she is probably preparing for new attack. But on the other hand she has a casual work. So she earns a living "legally" and hacks for a kind of ideal, "for greater good". I look forward to learning for what :)

Jisoo is indeed an organized person, though not to the point of obsession. She's indeed a hacker who also has a day job. Thanks for guessing!
