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.
