:new: Updated: New Artwork, Character design updates and a new outfit!

I want to say "new character alert" but in good conscious I can't call her "new" since I've had this character for over 14 years...CONFUSED!?

Get the full story here


I just could not leave her on the cutting room floor, especially now she has a purpose! To cause Ripper grief ! So I breathed new life into her! 14 years is a long time, especially considering a good portion of people who are into Monster High haven’t even been alive for 14 years :*( BUT on an up note I am very pleased with how this image came out- THIS is the closest I feel I have gotten to Monster High style accuracy so far. My only issue with it now is the calves need to be shorter and feet need to be bigger.

As for Karen herself she was in need of a bit of an update. See when I first made her I suffered from something called Special Snowflake Syndrome and I apparently thought that “popular” girls went to school every day dressed up in club kid mini skirts.

Karen as a character has always been the popular/trendy girl and since what is popular now is vastly different than when I first made her. I had to change her...but how?...I tried to put myself back in high school, what’s popular now and what would be my worst enemy if I was 16? The answer was almost too obvious. And just like that, Karen became a scene kid. She has gotten the biggest overhaul I’ve even given an “old” character. But it was necessary to keep her relevant. Scene just fits her attitude of unwarranted self importance and drama queen so well, her hair was a pain in the ass to draw though, I don’t understand scene hair it’s like a dandelion puff with tentacles hanging from it :shrug:. Since she’s not socially awkward like Ripper or socially retarded like Ox she actually has lots of friends. BUT in the mean time until she gets some who have names. I just stuck some background characters from the MH web series into her friends list to express that she’s a social butterfly, they consist mostly of boys & other Cyclopes, who’s surprised?

Who knows…maybe Karen won’t be the only one I bring back from the dead. I might bring back some of her flock of bitches as well…or maybe I’ll see if any of other of my MH peeps have any bitches who want to be in her flock. Every popular girl needs a flock- it’s a rule.

aside from the blue eye shadow I don't think any of this was popular in the 80's

it's more of what WE think the 80's was than actually 80's.

but thank you.

HAVENT HAD THE CHANCE TO SAY, but I really love Karen's new look. Like SO much. I love her eyeball accessories, the new hair cut and the fact that she has a horn! Her shorts are probably my favourite part of her outfit, with the little dino on them :)

awww thank you! I felt it was time for an update and I wanted to go the route of more Old school cyclops like clash of the titans. so I gave her a horn, made her ears pointy and gave her bottom fangs. just to remove her more form the thought of "human with one eye"

Oh, updated!
She looks younger now, very pretty! And her horn is finally growing! I bet she'll find a way to make it look VERY fashionable :D
I like how you updated her outfit and kept the scene fashion at the same time, without making it look too generic.

Ps. I love her eye.

That not what I meant- I mean that some people are just mean.

But I don't think you know her well enough to say that she is mean all the time.

1. I KNOW that people are sometimes mean, that's normal, but Karen has her special 'victims' and that sucks

2. I don't own her or know her perfectly, but i know, that she isn't nice or kind AT ALL.

Pretty much every person whose mean in high school has a select few targets.

and THAT right there, shows me how little you know about Karen- she has the potential to be nice. it's just to the people who likes...like the ones on her friends list.

Awesome...Well, her Character isn't the best! And it's true, but i don't wanna fight because of a Monster High OC...Sorry, but i'm mature

:iconcandy2021:
Candy2021 Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2012  Student Digital Artist
whose fighting? we are having a discussion. if you can't disagree with someone and have a civil discussion about your different point of view then it does not sound to me like you are very mature.

and you can't say someone's character "isn't the best" when you don't even know them. and what's true? I don't understand what you mean by that. I know if she's mean all the time- I made her.

maturity is not making judgments about someone until you know them inside and out.
