Claudia Reference Sheet by Neolucky Claudia Reference Sheet by Neolucky
You may remember a while ago I drew a little chilly drowned ghostie with a sad story! This is what she becomes after a good friend decides to build her a physical body and transfer her into it (through some help of other pals of course). Before this, her body was frail and thin, fair skin with straw blond hair and dark brown eyes - quite the difference! Of course, the first thing she asked for from Edmund was to make her a buxom woman since she could never -quite- pull it off with her previous body.

So here we go! Meet Claudia. In the same world alongside Edmund, Mako, Zeia and a few other goofball monsters.

I love that yellow dress! It's like a cute little jellyfish or something. =p At first I was just looking at the art and thinking "ok, so that's a bodysuit to 'censor' and then that's like with one stocking and ... glove? OH, FRANKENGIRL! *smack*" ^^; The left portrait is so pretty.... her eyes are so gentle.

Very cute.  Never seen such a cute frankenstein's monster type character before, I love it.  Also glad to hear that sad little ghost gal is getting another run at things. :)

Cool concept! I really like the placement of the stitching, as well as those icy blue eyes! And "Frankenstein Monster" can totally be a race! I mean, how many real life creatures are named after the person who discovered them? Seems legit to me. Some people are just too stuffy and jealous for social conduct. XD

Thanks! Haha, yeah I'm not worried about it really. It's a choice term I rather like as the story of Frankenstein's Monster is super great and appears a MILLION times in media regardless. It's an homage of love <3.

ANYWAY, she looks awesome! Love the outfits you came up with for her. I really love the painterly portrait and the profile images especially. Nice looking character sheet design as always, GOSH.

"Frankenstein Monster" is not a race.
It's "Frankenstein's Monster", and he was a one off.

A better term would be a 'stitched corpse', 'stitched monster' or something to that effect, something indicating it's reanimated status, and multiple body-part donors.
I know it's a convenient shortcut, but using it is a disservice to the English language, and culture in general.

I appreciate your urgency to try and "educate me" (and insult) but it is in vain, as I am not only aware of the story, I've actually -read it-. I am a large fan of horror genre and it's multiple forays into media both antique and recent.

I should have possibly used "A Modern Promethus" but that is not a term many younger generations know or can relate to. "Frankenstein" is, I choose something easily identifiable in story and concept. To call her just a stitched corpse would be taking away the human aspect of 'Adam' Frankenstein and his creator Victor in the story (Calling -anyone- just a corpse is insulting in our own lives, is it not? It's no different for this fictional world) . Adam wasn't just a corpse, he was something more and in the world written for Claudia other reanimated characters are as well.

In their world "monster" is a relative and useless status to be called as -everyone- is a monster. So why belabor the fact she's a monster? Why not choose the one type of monster that is easily identifiable both in looks and story?
It was not a shortcut. It is not a disservice to English or culture. It is a very thought out choice made by a simple artist displaying a trait of this character in order to condense things down for easy reading. If it is not to your liking them you are free to simply leave well enough alone.

So tl;dr:

Duh, no shit. Culture and Language have nothing to do with it, and you're hella reaching.

If I wanted to insult you, I'd most certainly reach for lower hanging fruit.
Implying malicious intent where any number of other causes can be valid(the educative one being somewhat accurate), is nothing short of rude.

Also:
"not a shortcut"
and
"trying to condense"
Pick one, it can't be both, and it illustrates my point.

Both sides of the Frankenstein Monster thing. You know, it being technically improper but still a valid usage. The validation/insultation (not a word, I know, but I live in the world of English where the walls are more nebulous than the blank space in an ellipsis) inherent in the term. You know. Things like that.

It's a discussion I can argue both sides of all too well, so I'm just glad other people are doing it instead of me. >_> You know?

Sorry to be vague.

It's just a pointless waste of time x_x and frustrating over an image I made and wanted to share. But I suppose I should rethink that?

Nah. You shouldn't let comments bring you down, negative or positive (becomes sometimes even positive comments are terrible things). ^_^ You're a talented artist with some real skill and you're a good-enough person that you actually respond (and thoughtfully at that) to comments on your work, which is more than can be said about a lot of artists. If you want to share it, share it. Don't ever let other people dictate what you want to do with your art (except for maybe commissioners who pay you extra ;) And even then only for that one piece).

Unless you meant rethinking it being a waste of time, in which case I can only say that some people do enjoys the discussions sparked from such things, and other people really are just trying to clear up things. ^_^ Not to excuse what happened, just saying.

Well... that's just, like, your opinion, man...

The idea behind calling them 'Frankenstein monster' is sort of a slang term for reanimated corpse. Both Neolucky and I know full well that, in Mary Shelley's book, Dr. Frankenstein created one monster... And in our silly fictional world of monsters, he was the first person to do it... So, as a result, it's sort of a general term used. Personally I like it better than your suggestions.

Even if the shortcut can stand, which it is obviously free to do, the "-'s" should still be applied.

It's not Frankenstein that's the monster(in a literal sense at least) here.
It's a monster of Frankenstein's design.

You must be a riot at parties.

Considering it's just a slang/nickname, I don't really see the problem with it. She's not a 'Frankenstein's monster' because Frankenstein didn't make her and that would be confusing. And I'm sorry but a 'monster of Frankenstein's design' doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. I mean... In the movie Hotel Transylvania, the actual monster is named Frankenstein. Are you going to write a heated letter to Genndy Tartakovsky about it? I mean, he's doing SUCH a disservice to our language and culture after all. :B
