[Vivid Black] A little highlight on Camille ⟦NSFW⟧

I've been having a sudden urge to draw my character Camille (from my project story called Vivid Black) lately, and it's a good thing, as I sadly leave her alone in a corner way too much (her and Luca, too).

Knowing me, the only reason why this is happening (and this, for both characters), is that they have rather simple looks and personalities, and also, they both have settled lives in the story. They're much more mature than the three others (Donovan / Toya / Jin), and they're factually older by a 6 year average.

Anyway, I don't like Camille less than my other characters (I'm a pretty crazy creator and I treat them like real life kids, my best friend could tell you, she endures it on a daily basis), but like I said, I guess that she's 'constructed' enough in my head, it's like she doesn't need any touch-ups nor real work on her. It seems that I mention that every time I talk of drawing since a while, but ever since I went back to drawing after my long Art-block, most my characters needed to be re-drawn, and while the Donovan/Toya/Jin trio went through a whole lot a changes both in appearance and personality, Luca and Camille didn't. My way of drawing them has changed, but not the characters themselves.

 

 

Actually, this is something I might have not talked about on here so far, it's not so surprising that I feel these two are 'finished' in terms of creation, as they both come from my early teens. I might have first drawn Luca around 12 or so, and Camille arrived when I was 14/15 I guess, which means they have more than 10 years already. They originally weren't from the same story; I was into Mangas before and would create a new comic each month, I swear but a few stuck with me through the years, and eventually, I started reuniting characters I was attached to and thought could live alongside in a new comic/project, and that's how Vivid Black was born.

It was in 2009, and it changed so much since then I wouldn't have enough time on my hand to list the differences (not that you want to know, though *ahem*), but yes, the big one remaining that I transformed it into a an actual novel instead of a comic.

I don't think I'm an excellent writer, but I think I'd be a way poorer comic-artist, that's for sure. Also, the way I picture Vivid Black doesn't fit the requirements for a good comic, it would mean forget a lot of scenes and focus on some I don't want to especially showcase in the story (—but would be more visual), so, yeah, this seemed like the good compromise. I've always been writing it all like a novel from the beginning (as some sort of guide/aid for the comic) but when I came back to drawing for good, the decision to stop the comic was final. I only draw illustrations, too, so this fits.

 

Anyway, back to Camille.

In the story, she’s the main female character and only girl of the dancing crew, and she also represents the Transgender community, as she is a male to female Transgender (another precision of you don’t follow me; Vivid Black happens to be focused on LGBTQ+ individuals).

She is French born but of Japanese descent, and has a boyfriend called Maxime whom I wanted to draw her with lately, as I actually haven’t done so until then. But also, I wanted a simple little something with her alone, and this happened on a little piece of paper I wasn't even going to use at first :

As for the couple drawings, things turned out unexpectedly rated (well, maybe not so unexpectedly /coughs/) and they aren’t exactly safe for work.

Well, still pretty SFW compared to most my Toya/Donovan pieces, but also, Camille just doesn’t have the same kind of relationship with her boyfriend as these two dogs have together. No matter what, I wouldn’t go too far with her in term of graphic images, that’s for sure. :)
