This is Marina, named after the Marina Del Rey considering her stripes remind me of water, her sisters

finding a headcanon voice for her, at first it was pearl, then it was Marina Lambrini Diamandis aka the singer

Bio:
Marina Ray is a quiet and reserved shapeshifter. She is sociable with her sister. When in a fight or argument, she prefers to talk her opponents down rather than duel, but you can count on her defending herself. She has rather biting insults, and can say some hateful things, but only when she must. Her insults are usually directed at those doing terrible things.

"Blind but will still fuck you up"

I find this to be a rather vague term. :( (Sad)  If you're speaking in the manner she doesn't like being made fun of for being blind and will defend herself in a fight, it's better to put things like that in the description so you don't have to limit your writing space. If you're speaking in the sense she just goes around hurting people, that's a rather marry sueish stereotype. That will definitely drive away many people from your art. I could help you type up a neater bio and such if you want.

In all technicality, a shapeshifter is a creature of its own with the ability to change its appearance into other beings. A shapeshifting ability is that same thing, but the being in question's species is not a shapeshifter. Blind creature's pupils can still be seen, they are just milky in color, not green. Unless of course, she has glass eyes...

I do like her overall design, the colors are pleasing, and you have some very solid line art. I also like how you mentioned she hates loud noises, this would make sense considering not having the use of her eyes. This could use some overall improvement and depth, but I think its very good and has potential to be the base of something great! :D (Big Grin) 

I find this design to be incredibly interesting, would you mind if I drew her?

Actually, shes not usually made fun of for being blind, the storyline she fits in is that humans and shapeshifters/anthros/hyprids or as i abbreviate ASH's are separate from eachother, marina doesnt usually go outside, unless shes in human form of course. What I meant by "she will fuck you up" is that even though she's not really the fighter type, she'll still make you feel bad if you did something horrible? Like she'd never really hurt a person, but she will kinda, i guess? talk you down? idk how to word it, basically if you argue with her, she'll usually be right, arguing skills. I usually try not to make my characters overpowered, and usually will take one of those "is your character a mary sue" kinda quizzes, not that it'd help to much, but its good to be a little comforted. Also, if you wanted to try making a neater bio for her, I'd love that!

In this universe being a shapeshifter basically means you have two forms you can be, usually human and animal, although one of the characters is feral to anthro. Also I didnt make her eyes that way for the purpose of showing she was blind, her sisters eyes are the same way (except blue) and shes not blind at all.

I wish I could say thank you for complimenting her design but I didnt completely design her, she was an adopt, and although I changed the marking placement a bit, shes still pretty close to the original. Thanks for the other stuff though, I try my best. 

and, if you wish to draw her go right ahead, I'd love that > w<
