Three words to describe her; spunky, tiny mom. Unlike Beneri who’s of the same gnome-statured race, Laurel views the world less as a place out to get her, but rather a world waiting to be cut to her own stature/size! Monsters are just par for the course. As a stepmom she didn’t exactly plan to adopt Abbey and Terra (oh so that’s where Terra got the kickassery) when it happened but she did see herself as the only one suited for the job and swiftly took them under her wing.
This would be the second time I’ve ever drawn her, but despite that it appears my hands are somewhat getting a pattern going on with drawing her. If I had the ability to draw more intense/actiony poses, you get I would sooo be drawing Laurel cracking monsters to bits!
A beegirl you may be familiar with (albeit without the crown and with a nose scar). Another OC passed down to me by Soranova (damn girl you spoil me), this OC has more personality and spunk compared to Lavadee.
Ribble’s a neutral character in her world that’s divided by factions- mainly cause she can’t choose between the good cuisine/alcohols between the factions, “Look buddy, I love your pollenbread so I won’t turn against you, but I can’t help you battle that guy next door, they just makes too good of nectar booze man”. Besides that she has a big stinger that takes way too much energy/resources to use in battle unless it’s a last ditch strike. She has both a sweet tooth and a big thing for alcohols (bees in RL are capable of getting drunk so I thought eh why not).
A Lavender Gijinka, Lavadee is a dozy laid-back character that is asleep 90% of the time. Living the dream some of us dream; relaxing/napping 24/7 lmao. I wish I drew her more, but it’s hard to make opportunity of anything when all your character does is sleep. Might need to fix that sometime, cause sleepiness is not all a character should be. Anyways she was originally created by Soranova, who passed Lavadee (at the time unnamed) onto me along with some other un-coloured characters for me to do whatever I wanted with them. So I coloured her with colours acquired from a photo of a Lavender plant and bam; Lavender girl.
There was another time I had drawn her in greater frequency; illustrations for a children’s book (for Children’s Literature in College) as a cute little child. Nowadays I prefer to draw her as an adult instead, but I love Lavadee adult, child, or otherwise. She’s my little sleepyhead.

Second OC ever who was created after Terra (if not created along with Terra), she’s in some ways the bubbly opposite of Terra. Happy go lucky, always seeming to be a big ball of smiley sunshine, it’s hard to believe that such an innocent character originally was not that at all; in her initial first design, she was a two-faced villain, a character to appose and toy-around with Terra. Now instead she’s a 100% good friend and apprentice of Terra’s and also happen to have a big crush on Terra as well.
As the third sketch implies, she’s quite the heavy-lifter, capable of lifting/carrying weight at points that even she doesn’t realize she can do. Funnily she thinks of herself as quite weak, when it couldn’t be farther from the truth.
One thing I wish I could get right with Kayla when I draw her is her body type. While Terra is supposed to be lean and athletic in build, Kayla supposed to be a bit on the plump side, almost like Rose from Steven Universe, but everrrrr so slightly thinner. Though behind that fat is true bulky muscle!
