Puella Magi Toshi by lythweird Puella Magi Toshi by lythweird
It's been forever since I've posted anything on here. I suppose that's what happens when you have an art block added with crippling emotional turmoil, though.

But I finally finished this after months of trying to get this done with said artblock. Anyway, Toshi Oda is my Puella Magi OC, a blind girl from a well-off family who formed a contract to become a Puella Magi in order to cure her blindness.
While it's a miracle at first, she quickly learns that sight isn't as great as she wished for -- being able to witness all of the sufferings and cruelties of the world with her own eyes; which eventually leads to her own fall into despair and transformation into the witch Cecilia.

Because of her disability (before becoming a Puella Magi), her parents often went beyond to do what they could to make their child happy to make up for that (getting her presents, trying to over-gratify her, etc), which I imagine eventually tired her upon realizing that they were only doing it to make her feel better/special. Spending all of her life not being able to see a thing probably made her frustrated on dozens of occasions, despite the fact she accepted that was just how things were for her. She also picked up cello-playing at a young age, finding pleasure in music and the fact she could do something useful without having to see.

Her design is heavily based on a “lady knight”, which I have a huuuge weakness for. It's also very floral/nature-esque because of her green-colour scheme. I'm super happy with her design, though.

Enjoy, and please leave feedback.

Wonderful. Especially love the shading on the cape. It makes it look like the petals on some kind of flower. Keep up the good work!
