Neige by gamera1985 Neige by gamera1985
Neige is a character from an unpublished story, who was heavily abused as a child, leaving her ugly and disformed. When she was rescued from the stable she was forced to live in, an experimental treatment involving the albino gene restored her to her original beauty, although its side-effects left her skin and hair white as snow, her eyes ruby red.

Neige doesn't remember her suffering, or much else for that matter - her mind is almost completely incapable of retaining memories, and especially bad memories melt away like snowflakes in the sun. Because of this, she has a very childish, innocent demeanor, unable to understand concepts such as lies, lust, anger, deceit, and rejoices in every new day as she continually rediscovers all the beautiful things in life.

As her foster father is an elderly tailor, Neige has somehow managed to learn a bit of his trade, and enjoys sewing dresses a lot. But when asked, she gladly acts as a mannequin for him, content to stand still for hours while he works. When she's not wearing one of their creations, she prefers this simple white dress that's easy to take off.

Neige means "snow" in french by the way...

The character concept is very original, I love it

The drawing itself is beautiful; my favorite part is how you can see her body through the shirt

Wonderful picture Gamera, she really turned out as beautiful and innocent as I envisioned her.

I'm to blame for asking him to draw such a 'normal' girl (and I'm glad to see most of you can forgive poor Gamera for it, haha), and I feel it's also my responsibility to say that my story involving her probably won't be finished for a long while, isn't quite as innocent as this girl and only features her as a side character - it'd be too difficult to write a good story about a girl who keeps forgetting things, heh. I'm happy to hear you like her bio, though.

And rest assured that the people who abused her (believing her to be retarded and worthless) have already been dealt with, even though Neige herself would've never wished harm upon them. Since the few precious memories she manages to keep are good ones, she lives a very happy life now.

She so elegant and hevenly. Her beauty is beyond words. The dress she wears is so angelic and flowy that it really gives that feeling that she's some kind angel in human form..

Innocence comes with a price, as does beauty. Such a life I would revile, had I the ability to realize my plight. In this, ignorance is truly bliss.

Superbly beautiful. :wow:

Beautiful... Simply beautiful.

On a side note, after reading her backstory, I feel a strong urge to inflict massive agony upon someone (or maybe "someones") right now... Death would be too kind a punishment.

Yeah... I was thinking of dumping them in a slow-acting acid pool, take them out when they're near-dead, regenerate their flesh, revitalize them, and then dunk them in the pool again, ad infinitum.

Very interesting concept. I like how you wrote it up. Backstory is quite good. I'd like to see more of her.

Oh, and, of course, the picture is awesome. That dress is a bit shorter than I'd expect, but I like it. Great pose. I can imagine her standing like a statue while the tailor works. It seems like a very cute concept.
