I was inspired by
's Monster High profiles to try one of my own!
->I haven't designed her friends yet, hence the blank spaces!
I came up with Rhoda since most of the MH monsters are "children of", which made me think of Children of the Damned
, and by extension, Village of the Damned
. Ya know, the creepy British kids?Yes, the "We Know All Your Secrets" ones from the Simpsons... sort of. Also it made me think of Children of the Corn, but they aren't as easy to turn into cartoon form since they don't all look exactly alike.
I chose to do my extended essay last year on children in horror cinema, so I had a lot of info whirling about my brain.
This wasn't the weirdest thing I came up with by far...There was this crazy idea I had where Carrie ended up at Bates Motel and ended up becoming BFFs with Norman. Then Samara comes out of the TV, and we have a sitcom! So, Rhoda:
Her name is taken from the main character of "The Bad Seed", possibly one of the first creepy children in horror cinema. [link]And boy, was she crazy!
Zellaby, of course, is the surname of the main characters in Village of the Damned
This is my first time trying out the style, so I decided to do this for funsies. I usually draw black and white characters as simply being black and white, even if everyone else is in colour. Watching the movie, I imagined these kids were
supposed to be B&W, the remake backs this up somewhat.
I tried to keep her personality in-line with the children from the movie, I even made up a little voice for her to help me write. I threw in the line about chocolate since the kids in the movie go into the sweet shop every day - to buy sweets, naturally (creeping the woman at the counter out by being so damn polite), and since Midwich is in England, she'd be used to the sweeter chocolate we have in Europe. Anywhoo, comments?
