#1 – Ulrike Sommerheim

| November 3, 2011 | 0 Comments

Agidyne! Hi everyone,

I’ll use this as my introductory post.  I know I’m a day behind but I won’t be in a moment!  I decided to participate in this challenge just because it sounded like a lot of fun and I really am enjoying not only the creative part of it, but also keeping up with everyone’s posts so far.  Anyway, I don’t really consider myself an artist but I don’t think I’m horrible either.  I’m a writer by trade and can always use some good characters so hopefully after this I’ll have close to 30 usable ones.

I was a little stumped on what to do to start this off.  I really wanted to go into it ‘pure’ and not create a character I’ve already thought about or something and it was getting hard to figure out where to start.  So as a warm up I decided to create a character for the Persona series of games…which I’m totally obsessed with…I think she would fit right in on Inaba, in case anyone sees this and wants to totally redo “The Golden” before it comes out.

Ulrike is a German transfer student (not a foreign exchange student as her family has moved here).  She is on the tennis team and uses the tools of her trade as ranged weapons against the shadows inside the TV.  I couldn’t stop laughing when I thought about her serving the tarot card to summon her persona so that’s what I decided to go with for her image here.  I like to think that she’d be of the Star Arcana and when you spend time social linking with her you learn that she’s struggling with whether she wants to devote more of herself to tennis and become a professional or play less competitively and more for fun.  I like to think she and Rise would get along really well, but she won’t be as mean to Kanji as Rise is.  When she gets a crit with her Racket and ball she volleys the ball back at the shadows a few times until it comes back to her and goes out so she gets the point.
