This is my version of Doctor Frankenstein.

From a young age she showed promise, excelling in building simple contraptions at the age of 5. Her father was never impressed and never showed even a smile in her presence, having wished for a son. Her mother died during birth, for which her father blamed her. Eventually in a drunken, depressed stupor he attempted to kill her via a knife to the heart, then preceded to take his own miserable life. She was found with a knife left in her chest, miraculously still alive, by an old war veteran who took her in. Once she was able to move again, she then turned her entire life into a driven blur of study. Though only at 20 years old, she has lived long past her years as she sleeps little more than an hour or two a night. As her friend and adopted guardian begins to become weaker in age, she turns her attention to creating a figure to protect her beyond his death. She creates her creature, her abomination, her guardian.

As far as symbolism in her outfit. She keeps her chest open to remind herself that nothing is impossible, if she could survive that. She wears a sun dress under her coat to represent innocence under a shell of torment. She seldom bathes as she figures it a waist of time, so her hair has become dreads. Her coat is that of a man so it its closed on the male side.

Exellent piece

However in the comments you say she is very thin. Like other said, she looks a bit on the chubby side. Even though she might be wearing many clothes, there could be other clues to tell me her figure. If I look at her exposed parts, the lower arms, hands, chest and face, they don't look thin. I would expect more angles, more pronounced bone structure like knucles, cheekbones and colar bones. You could perhaps make tighten up the belt and lower her shoulders a bit or elevate her head.
As it is, I like it very much, especially with the story to go with it.

Well well,well.

Thats really creative its nice. :) Lets give it a 3 points.But!,Her face doesnt fit to her body and her outfit,its kinda something old. And btw i red the author commented that she was really thin but she just has a big utility belt around her natural waist ok so that explanation worked that well but,she looks kinda fat,and as I said it doesnt fit to the face the face of the girl is kinda like something like a warior(girl) and not something like just selling in the street :| and for that i will give it points,and but, I really like its work but theres just something kinda diff. thing that I didnt like,and for that i will give it 5 points. ;) Ok so lets add all the points 3 points+2 points+5 points=9 points!Excellent work ;)
