"Theda was a goddess of death, who took responsibility to bring the dead into the underworld. She repeated a boring job day by day and existed as a fading shadow with no memory, no present, no idea what the future will be. Life in darkness would seem meaningless if Theda did not meet the soul of an artist who gave her a pamphlet and pencil and suggested her to create new memories by drawing any soul she meets. Since then, she finally had a new ideal passion: portraying the souls which led to the underworld by her. She drew and memorized the souls, among them had many artists who were willing to share with her more experiences in painting. Day after day, Theda kept more and more paintings, which contained new memories that made her sorrowful life become happier and more meaningful ..."

Theda is my original character that portray my attitude in Art in my real life. I used to be surrounded by things I didn't like and don't want to do. One day I met a person who guided me to the path of art industry. He showed me the drawing tablet and taught me how to draw, from sketch, line to coloring ... Gradually, I improved. I took drawing classes, improving myself by studying from real photos, studying anatomy, learning perspective ... When I made progress, I got my first commission, my first salary, my first project... They all comes from drawing.
This is just the beginning, and I think with my endeavors in art, there are many things still waiting for me to explore in the future.

This is such a charming OC and backstory!

Art-wise I like how you used deep thick tones to create a sense of ominous dark while still having modicum of light & hope, also Theda's two-tone hair & lensed heterochromia is distinctively beautiful.

Story-wise I find it really touching how you incorporates your history of growth and evolving into Theda's, and, combined with the juxtaposition of extremes (death to life, despair to hope) really makes one motivated to be grateful of living right now and live it to the best. ○

Thanks So Much for sharing your story through this!

Looks amazing! Realistic, yet stylish at the same time. The effects and shading are a nice touch without being too overdone, which is a testament to some awesome skill =)
