I finally finished my character sheet, but she's still nameless, so for now she's just Beach Bun haha. I've been showing slow progress of her in the WIP thread. I don't get much time for my art so she took a while.

You did a fantastic job of improving the surfboard! The shape (flat tail, straight sides) is called the alaia. Her choice of board implies a lot about her personality:
  • She doesn't follow the crowd. Not many surfers ride alaias.
  • She has a reverence for and curiosity towards the past. Alaias are the most ancient type of surfboard, used by Hawaiian nobility for a thousand years.
  • She wants to advertise her above-average skill. Alaias can be quite difficult to control (due to the absence of fins), but an expert surfer can get perfect tube rides if they have good sense of the water. It's the equivalent of the "Luke, you've switched off your targeting computer" moment from Star Wars, where raw skill allows one to discard technological crutches.
  • She is environmentally conscious. Alaia boards are made from sustainably-grown wood, avoiding the harmful byproducts of epoxy and fiberglass.
  • She may have a DIY streak. These boards can be made with simple (non-power) tools.

If you want to know more, here's an interview with Tom Wegener, a shaper who makes alaias.
It makes the character really stand out, I love it!

The first one is an oc I made based on some guy on TicToc's botched explanation of what a dalmatian is. The second one is inspired by LavenderTowne's YouTube video about turning nursery rhymes into creepy characters.
