Patience LePine and her Tortoise, Tim by k00k3y Patience LePine and her Tortoise, Tim by k00k3y
Ahhh, I designed a new character that I like but... I dont have anywhere to use her :iconlazycryplz:. perhaps someone knows an rp group that she would fit in at? Either way, I thought I'd post a pic and a quick blurb on her personality.

Patience LÚpine
:bulletyellow: does everything at her own pace, which just so happens to be incredibly slow. 
:bulletorange: Loves painting scenery, and can spend weeks just trying to find the ideal scene to paint
:bulletyellow: Has had her pet tortoise, Tim, ever since she was a baby
:bulletorange: Manages to get paint EVERYWHERE- even on her little tortoise friend
:bulletyellow: has had a slew of part time jobs- most of which she gets fired from for moving too slow. 
 +Patient (hurr durr) +Good memory and attention to detail - Stubborn - Becomes fixated on things easily

I wanted to emphasize her wide hips with the high-waisted shorts, so hopefully that comes across. And I was happy to find that naming her was really easy. Seeing as how Patience is a French name, I wanted to get a surname of the same origin. For some reason, I had the last Nmae "Pine" stuck in my head- then I found the surname LÚpine (different pronunciation but eh) and discovered that there was a French landscape artist named Stanislas  LÚpine. so yay happy coincidences!

Gopher Tortoise (Since they're local to North America)
Likes eating and digging holes. 
Probably about ten years older than Patience. (Making him around 30)

Ahh what can I say- who doesnt love a good animal sidekick? I was actually really inspired by a friend of mine who was telling me recently about how she wanted a pet turtle- and how she would walk it around on the leash if she got one. i was going to draw Patience holding a leash, but then I read that you really aren't supposed to walk turtles >.>

So that's all I have! But yeah. Maybe I'll be able to use her and tim in the future- hopefully! = v=

A tortoise pet for a slowpoke...
Sounds fitting :o I wonder why Patience has a slow pace.

LOL I was inspired by the tortoise pet to make her a slowpoke. And then her character kind of fell into place. I dont know, I imagine shes someone who sets her mind to things and likes to do them right- so she takes her time. Thats why painting is such an ideal hobby for her I think- no rush.

Me sees.
I thought she was overly slow at everything :P As in, slow-motion kind of slow.

Slow-motion pace could've been a problem :o

Ahhh! She's so cute! And so is Tim! I love that he gets dripped on, my feels for that tortoise. I bet he looks like a grumpy old man every time like siiiigh. It would be great if you found her a place to live! And the hips are working too. Totally Bodacious.

HAhahahha I definitely imagine as an old soul with a temper that's grumpier beyond his years. Im gonna look around for an rp group maybe. :] Ahhh yess! I think they could have used a bit more emphasis (As her torso proportions in general need some tweaking) but yay for the bodacious comment ahhahaha :eyes:
