<b><u>Character Name:</b></u>
Sarena Kimura




110 lb


<b><u>Grade Level:</u></b>
2nd Year [Sophomore]

<b><u>Powers/ Abilities</b></u>
Sarena has always been great with using her fists, so her abilities focus on pure strength. Also, she wears a punching glove on each hand, enabling her to use the elements of fire and ice. Fire comes from her right fist, while ice comes from her left fist. The only negatives about these elements are Sarena's lack of experience, as well the cost. If she uses these elements too often, it may put her life-spand in danger, so she rarely uses the elements.

Sarena has attempted sword training before, but never actually got the chance to have a sword of her own. So Sarena has little experience with them. She does have a pocket knife, though, which she uses only in the case of self-defense.

Sarena is more of a quick fighter. She will move quickly to throw her punches, using short and slightly weaker punches, compared to slow and stronger punches. She always keeps her weakness a secret, and has never actually told anyone of it: her scar on her right eye. If the scar is tampered with at all, she will undergo severe pain within her head. Even if someone merely touches the scar, it will cause her to flinch. This is why Sarena has kept this weakness a secret from everyone she has ever met.

Sarena's elemental punches usually take much more time to power up than her normal style of quick and fast punches. The elemental punches, although taking the time to power up, deal much more damage. (aka, more like Falcon Punches, rather than Mario punches) This is th reason for them possibly taking away some of her life-span.

<b><u>Personality Description:</b></u>
Sarena is a friendly girl who will always look out for those around her. She is the selfless type who will put others before herself for the most part. She can sometimes be very clueless, especially when it comes to her worse subjects, like Science or History. She is very happy-go-lucky, but can be very clumsy. She is good at sharing and standing up for her beliefs and opinions, but will not always have skills when it comes to debating.

Sarena is very modest, and doesn't like to cause trouble, but instead she likes obeying her elders, and is a great listener. Although she loves talking, meeting new people, and mingling with friends, she also likes to have alone time to think or draw by herself. Sarena is very persistant as well as keeping promises and following out whatever she says she will do.

<b><u>Personal History:</b></u>
As a little girl, Sarena lived with her two parents and her older brother. She lived in a large city where all was busy, but she was still too young to attend school. She only lived here until she was two-years-old. On her second birthday, her parents got into a car crash on the way home from their work, and her and her brother were forced to attend an orphanage in small nearby village.

Sarena had always looked up to her brother, and believed everything that he said or did was right. So the two of them lived at the orphanage, and were provided education for six years. The two of them became very attache



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


The face and neck are too fat for her body. Way to wide. Just re-doing the face and neck alone would make this drawing so much better.

I like how you've incorporated her possesions into the background, and the coloring/shading isn't half bad.

Buy one of those little wooden mannequins, and practice drawing the human figure from all angles. After you have sketched out the basic proportions, then you can start to draw on clothes and details. Apply this method of working to your anime style characters, and you will find the end result is more natural looking.

Practice makes perfect :)
