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.

A good character, I should think. Though I'd have to see her in action to really know. ;)

*looks at a certain comment left on this piece* oh, wow......

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.

You care WAY too much about this. It's just a name... for fun... for a world that is IMAGINARY. Stop being such a freakin' grammar troll, dude.
