OC Quiz

Mon Aug 27, 2018, 11:50 AM

Sooooo....I don't normally do this, but I got tagged by :iconamaranthinerain: in an OC quiz, and she requested Madam Night, so I decided to create my own OC quiz questions - and yes, I will tag others! Mwahahha!

Leda Lockwood AKA: Madam Night

'I am so high, I can hear heaven' by InkyRose

Favourite toy growing up:

 Probably one of those creepy china dolls with one eye that seems to be permanently winking...

The playground bully (Playground equivalent) was:

 Millicent Jones- the girl with the best curls in class. She had a habit of cutting plaits off other girls or tipping ink down the back of their dresses when the teacher wasn't looking.

Did your OC get their revenge? If so- how?

Yes she did, she spread a rumour that Millicent had headlice and so her mother cut all her curls off...yes, Leda does not come off well out of this story! 

When your OC was young, what did they want to be when they grew up?

An explorer to the Amazon rainforest- before she was told it just wasn't seemly for a girl to do that. 

What did your OC end up becoming when they grew up?

A widow, an asylum escapee and a masked vigilante- as well as the richest woman in the city. 

What’s the best thing that’s happened to your OC?

Meeting her now deceased husband, William Grey. 

What’s the worst thing that’s happened to your OC?

Being locked in the asylum after being framed for William's murder. 

Does/did your OC have a love interest?/ Crush?/ The one that got away? If so- who?

(See above). Also in my collaboration project 'LockTurn' with :iconsleyf: she is the love interest of Waloga- (correction- he is her love interest!) this isn't much of a giveaway if you look at old artwork, so no real spoiler alert needed!

If your OC was on death-row, what would their final meal be?

Lobster soup followed by salmon in a lemon sauce and blueberry pana cotta. 

Does your OC have any allergies?

 Shellfish and blueberries...

What would their party trick be?

She can run and jump in's harder than it looks.
She's also done it a few times wearing a corset- not that she'd recommend it! 

What is your OC’s biggest achievement?

Founding her own businesses across the city, including her nightclub: The Black Cat Club. 

What is your OC’s biggest regret?

That she didn't have more time with her husband. 

One more random fact:

She has a diamond shaped birth-mark on her lower back.

Now it's my turn to tag people *cackles in evil glee*
Feel free to ignore tagging- and you don't have to create your own journal entry, if you want to just answer in the comment section below, feel free!

:iconsleyf: Waloga and Ilswetht (sorry! Couldn't decide which one!)
:iconladypep: Edith
:iconratprince: Master Magpie
:iconakitku: Sebastian
:iconhelevornart: Yngvar (had to!)
:iconsaylem: Hannah
:iconcharcoalfeather: Nurana
:iconcaptain-savvy: Alora
:icondragondoodle: Iolanthe

  • Eating: Nada
  • Drinking: water...boring...


So I've been working on this for the past month and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out! Meet Lady Elysande Mortmain, the main character of my NaNoWriMo project this year, a sequel to my fantasy story 'Roar of Doves.' (The artwork of which you can find in my gallery).  Elysande is the descendant of Elysia (who appears in the tapestry behind her...for my old followers, you can tell it's not exactly an accurate portrayal!) and like her ancestress, she is a spy. She is also a courtier and a heretic with a thorough knowledge of herbs...and poisons. In the story she's caught between a rock and a hard place serving at the court of Partene's descendant, a troubled and somewhat tyrannical king...but can she survive? 

(Sorry for my absence on here this month, NaNoWriMo has kind of taken over my life!)

Dark Halo
My final piece for Inktober- I did intend to do more but we've been busy with a massive campaign at work.
This is a scene from my collab project with :iconsleyf: called 'LockTurn.' (A victorian superhero story). In this scene, my heroine (almost anti-heroine) Leda Lockwood is forced to dance with my arch-villain, Lucius Light-Crown at a masquerade ball. (I didn't draw them wearing their masks so that I could better capture their expressions) Lucius has a proposal for her, and it's an offer she cannot refuse...

:iconsleyf: also captured this scene - and far better too!

Leda's transformation
'After the initial surrender, it came easily.

In a glorious, dark rush.

Heat and ice and storm clouds tumbling through her veins, out of her fingertips, dripping from her eyes. Flowing like ink but as dry and choking as smoke.'

So here's my first Inktober piece for this year- I apologise if the quality isn't the best, I had to user a scanner app on my phone!
This is from a scene in my upcoming collab with :iconsleyf: called 'LockTurn' which is a Victorian superhero story.
This particular scene is where Leda Lockwood, aka: Madam Night discovers/surrenders to her abilities.

At this point in the story she's technically bald and in a straight jacket, but I couldn't resist taking a bit of dramatic license. ;)

Want to find out more about LockTurn? Sleyf and I will be uploading chapters to our shared account next month- :iconlock-turn: thanks everyone for their patience and interest!
