This is Miki. One in a long line of proto-Mickis? Or so I’ve realised looking through these older characters. Also from the early 2000s.
She was based off of a toy of mine. I strapped a flute to her back and gave her a fountain pen for a spear and that was her character! I wrote a small (illustrated) story about her that I never finished, too. I think I had it planned to be some grand adventure of nature vs technology, kind of like a Ghibli but y’know… like written by a nine year old
Artistically, I was going for a vague 80s anime look. Most of it’s in the face.
