This was originally just a quick character sketch that got waaaay out of hand. This young lady is Coraline Lee, who takes a liking to odd makeup, poetry, and is in denial. She also, like the rest of her peers, has a fantastical power - she can rip open time and space to create a portal to another dimension, in which she is god. However, this can only be done on reflective surfaces, such as a mirror, and objects created in her dimension will disappear when returning to this one. So what's a teenage girl to do when you're god in your own little world? Why, use it to create a world where her twin sister Annabel never drowned of course. Sadly, Coraline must eventually face the truth that her world is a lie - it is simply a representation of what she imagines or wishes to be true - and with that, face the fact that her sister is dead, and she must deal with the consequences of her wish.
(... The references are strong in this one...)
In A Kingdom By The Sea...
I love that cocky grin Coraline has. I can imagine nearly ever word to come out of her mouth being sarcastic and condescending. I noticed the duality of her and her twin right away, but it was only after you mentioned reflective surfaces that I noticed the glare surrounding the ghost girl as if she was on a window or mirror. I wish I could say I got the reference but I don't!May 19, 2015
