Bo-Peep by Kiwifie Bo-Peep by Kiwifie
MagicalGirlAlliance is currently having an oc design contest, so I figured since I have a stupid amount of magical girl characters I'd try my luck and enter. C:

----

Amber was 14 when she transferred to Hart Academy. Not expecting much excitement from the prestigious school, she was ecstatic when she discovered that it was protected by a real live magical girl. Being a massive weaboo she decided to stalk investigate, and inadvertently got herself teleported to the warring fairytale world monsters had been escaping from. Luckily for her, just as she was about to be killed by a wolf, the trapped spirit of Little Bo Peep appeared and leant her her powers. In her magical girl form Amber is considerably faster than the average human. She also has the ability to summon sheep bombs, which will explode a few seconds after being hit.

To most of those who know her Amber comes across as friendly and optimistic, with an obsession for anything anime, which makes her quite genre savvy in a magical girl plot. She can also be very stubborn and manipulative to get what she wants however, and isn't above making threats if she thinks it will work out for the greater good. Despite this, she's fiercely loyal to the people she considers friends, and will do whatever it takes to protect them.

The lineart is just gorgeous! So clean and crisp, I love it! The colors are also extremely pleasant, as well as the design and concept.

To critique, it's a bit of a detail maybe but I'm thinking the image might be a little bit overcrowded. With the lighting being fairly flat (in itself isn't a bad thing, but it reduces perspective) and so many elements spread out all around the image, it's hard to find a point to focus to. I assume normally you'd want the face of the subject to be the focus, but in this case the circle composition makes my eyes loop endlessly. One more tiny detail, her right hand (left side of the picture) doesn't look very much like it's holding the staff, I think you could extend the fingers a little bit more to show they're not stopping at the edge of the staff but beyond and behind.

But in the end, I just feel jealous of your super-expressive and clean lineart!!

Thank you!
I definitely think you're critique is on point looking back.  I've actually been planning on redrawing it since it's been a while, so I'll be sure to keep these in mind when I do!

1. This style is insanely adorable and I think it works well for a magical girl type character.
2. I'm surprised no one mentioned the text in the background, I really like the use of the story in the hills.
3. The color scheme adds to the cute nature of the character.
4. Exploding sheep!

Thanks! <3
The style is pretty new and still a bit of a wip, I've been trying to come up with something more unique than my old stuff. >A<
And it's cool that you noticed the text! I wanted to give it a sorta storybook feel. C:

It really does add a storybook feel to it, that was the first thing I noticed. But the text on the sheep sorta drew the eye to the other text, which is really neat. Its always fun to work on a new style. ^^

I haven't actually seen that one yet! I probably should though, it looks super adorable. ;w;
The other three magical girls are Snow White, Cinderella, and Alice (Who I guess isn't technically a fairytale character, but seems to be grouped with them.) And I might draw the Queen of Hearts, the main villain, and the Frog Prince, the mascot... thing. xD

Ohgosh you have no idea how happy that would make me! QwQ I would seriously love you forever. xD

It is super adorable. AND THEIR SONG IS SO CUTE IT'LL BE STUCK IN YOUR HEAD FOREVER. It had snow white, cinderella, and the moon princess.
Such a weakness for idol magical girls.
And alice is a fairytale character and it'll be adorable, and *cries* F-Frog prince? ilu. Yes yes yes to the queen or wait.

WHat if she was group mentor? Like a veteran magical girl. Her being the villain would be the more common route. What if maybe, the fairy godmother/good witch was sick of her powers being used and turned bad?
idk. I just like your concept alot.

But I have no scanner and I'm horrible at digital art so no.
Maybe stories. I can do good one-shots.

I'll have to add it to my list of things to watch! I've found so many series lately that I want to watch but haven't had much time for. ;___;

You actually got pretty close to what my plan for the plot is! Hold on I'm gonna ramble a bit. XD Basically the first half of the story would be fairly stereotypical magical girl stuff, with a bit of lampshading/deconstruction just due to the character's personalities. But about halfway through they discover that the whole thing was set up by the Queen of Hearts and Frog Prince working together to create a real-life magical girl scenario. So basically the Queen of Hearts was just playing the role of a villain because the story needed a stereotypical over-the-top evil antagonist. :P This eventually goes horribly wrong though and the original Alice (who gave the main character her powers) decides that SHE wants to become queen of the fairytale world and the real world and ends up being the real villain. It's really a pretty silly plot though, and I'm probably not explaining it very well oops. xD

I'll still be really happy just with comments! I'm not very popular on DA so any kind of feedback is exciting for me. ;w;
