I managed to get something done after all. ^_^
Name: Ginifer (pronounced - gin not jen) Jenson
Personality: High-strung, emotional, anti-social. Does everything herself, never asking for help, since she's very distrustful.
Background: Ginifer Jenson's parents were just trying to be clever when they used a non-traditional spelling for their first child's name. Five very active siblings, combined with crowded public schools made Ginifer's life a constant joke. She was constantly called by various nicknames, playing off of the unfortunate phonetics of her name - Gin-Jen. Ginifer withdrew from the attempts at comfort from her parents and became very bitter.
Leaving home in California for upstate Maine as soon as she graduated, Ginifer started working various minimum wage jobs to pay for a one room apartment and online college courses. Gaining a degree in business at 21, she started her own internet referal business. When the business surprisingly took off, Ginifer found that despite her attempts to deny it, she needed help.
Ginifer reluctantly hired the son of some of her parent's friends, who had recently graduated from business college himself - Jason Redding. Little did she know that this shy young man, two years her senior, would turn her life upside down. Jason's pleasant personality and quiet refusal to fight with her was utterly confusing to Ginifer.
As December rolled around, Ginifer found herself in a state she had thought could never happen to her - her constant anger was starting to seem out of place, and she found herself completely confused when it came to Jason. One bright afternoon, Ginifer's confusion came to a head and she ran from the small office that she and Jason worked at on the edge of town.
She quickly slowed to a walk, as the crisp winter air was bitingly cold, and walked on, listening to the crunch of the snow under her feet, thinking things over in her head. Ever since coming to Maine, Ginifer had loved winter, secretly enjoying the comforting solace the snow brought. Big changes were going to be happening.
Sorry it's so long. ^^ I was having a bit too much fun with the story.
The picture was a bit of an adventure - I've drawn with my tablet quite a bit, but always over scanned pencil sketches. This was my first attempt at drawing solely with the tablet.
We had a pretty good turn-out this month, looks like. I don't think I've commented on everyone's drawings, so here goes:
That Dude - very lovely pencil shading, and great job all around with her face.
Aka-chan - evil Frosty made me giggle pretty hard, and I love your inking, nice textures
CreatureArt - very cute, Chloe looks like such a personality, and the penguins are too cute. I ate snow all the time as a tot, and have survived this long with no noticable problems... wait...
Kokoro Daisuke - lovely coloring job, and nicely done on his hair. Alex looks like someone you wouldn't want to meet on a dark and snowy back road... ^^
ChristianRonin - very nice coloring job - having fun with the new tablet? Stick Monkey is adorable, and I love the texture you used on Brendan's hair.
ShadowCat - very cute ^^ - that's pretty much my reaction to yellow snow too, heh.
