I have heard that many of you would like to know more about the chinese girl from theflyinghamsters new pics.
First of all, this girl is an open source characters, so anyone can use her in stories or drawing or use her in requests/commissions for other artists without asking me first.
All I ask is that you give me links to the works featuring her, so I can admire what you come up with.
I read about this concept at willgeorge's page here on da (feet/tickling artist with a fantastic style, check him out) and I think it's an interesting concept, so I'll give it a try.
But now, let's get to the info.
The whole idea to this character come from a movie scene.
As you can see, it's about two young girls doing some sort of performance. The scene is only a couple of seconds long, but I loved the pose and the whole idea.
So I asked flyinghamster to do his own interpretation of her in cartoon style and draw some tickling pics with her.
At first it was just supposed to be a single pic with the handstand scene from the movie, but then creativity hit us and we discussed all kinds of ideas till we settled for the ones flyinghamster is posting the results of now.
Because of this I wouldn't actually consider her as my own character, since I hadn't much part in the creative process of creating her.
The main thing I did was coming up with a name, mostly because I wanted to use her in an rp.
I settled for Mai Lin (her first name, I haven't bothered to give her a family name yet.
Her homeland is China.
And now the info you're probably all waiting for: She's BAREFOOT ALL THE TIME (aside from winter).
In the rp I did about hershe was a former street acrobat working at teahouse / inn, but she doesn't have a real biography.
Things like being a martial arts trainee (she comes from a martial arts movie after all) or a circus acrobat/gymnast or thief would fit her well, too.
She would fit for a setting in modern times just as well as for a historical setting (the movies she's from plays in a time some centuries back).
Reg. her personality, I imagine her to be an outgoing and courageous, and cheeky, too. Maybe a bit tomboyish, more the likes of Merida from brave than Akana from Ranma 1/2 if you get what I mean.
In total flyinghamster has done 7 pics of her for me, so you can look forward to 2 more.
Aside from that she'll be getting a rest for a while, I now focus my attention on african girls for now.
But I loved the pics, so there might come a sequel in the future.
Have a nice day,
