Alright. Another new character to add to the other newer ones as of late.

~bountyDBZ liked this character design though, and even told me to pay more attention to her. So I decided to keep her, but a a side character which wouldn't be focused on too often.
[Edit]: ~Rein-Pudding managed to spot an earlier mistake in one of my initial sketches of this character: I forgot to add in her tattoo at the side of her face. All the more obvious that I hate drawing this character.

Andia is a 19 year old Grim Reaper Substitute. Being the oldest girl in her squad in the neighbourhood, she was given an order by the leader of the squad to take care of the other two girls: Li Xiang and Mist.

But she hates both of them.

She finds Li Xiang to be someone "incompetent" as she's nearly blind. Unfortunately, Li Xiang is let out on the field to reap souls, and Andia is responsible for Li Xiang's actions...including failures.
She also finds Mist to be one of the worst aimers she's ever met in her lifetime. Especially after numerous times of shooting her darts at Li Xiang.

It's still her job to take care of both of them, so she does try to make the best out of it, by torturing both of them with their training sessions. Both Li Xiang and Mist usually end up in the hospital after every training session with broken arms and legs, sometimes worse.
Andia's explanation to the leader: I was only trying to test their limits.

Oh yeah, her weapon is a traditional scythe, which means it can't shrink itself into the small keychain that Li Xiang keeps with her (pictures in gallery). She hates carrying that "heavy bulky chopping knife" with her 24/7, so she has a habit of leaving it in her room.

She wouldn't settle for any other weapon; they bring back horrible memories.

Explaining the picture on the extreme right: At times, Andia has a sort of "motherly" role with Mist and Li Xiang.
If Mist comes to her with a scratch on her arms, legs or face, Andia would usually ask "What did Li Xiang do to you this time?"
If Li Xiang comes to her with darts on her back, Andia would ask "What did Mist do to you this time?"
Yeah...Mist and Li Xiang hate each other. Hope I made it quite obvious here.
Actually they all hate each other...haha.

You know what, this is just a sketch. Screw anatomy, I hated drawing this character anyway, so drawing this reference sheet was PAINFUL.

Tools used:
Pilot Colour Eno mech. pencil, 0.7mm, Dark Blue for sketching
Staedtler, Mars Lumograph 6B pencil for finalizing

why do you hate drawing her so much? i think she's moderately interesting, but it's cool, to have more varied characters. i like how they "all hate each other".
