Roxanne Ref by Yo-Angie Roxanne Ref by Yo-Angie
I'm not sure how many people would remember Roxanne/Roxi, as I don't draw her all that often.
She's a character I've had since I was a young teen(15ish?), her original name was Michi, but then I changed it to Roxanne about 2 years ago.

Anyway, I hope you all like her C:
I've been trying to focus on drawing more humans, I've been sketching them a lot in my sketch book I hope my anatomy is improving aha.

~More info on Roxanne~

Roxanne is a fun loving girl, but tends to get herself into a lot of trouble, especially at school and with her Dad(who is now a single parent). She's quick to anger and is stubborn about her opinions. Because of her anger issues she fights a lot with everyone.
She stays at her boyfriend's house a lot because she's constantly fighting with her dad(I feel bad for her father btw :C Just sayin cuz like, he's widowed and his daughter is such a punk, poor guy). Roxi and Tobias fight constantly over really stupid stuff, but always make up in the end(lol make up sex ouo).
Once Roxi befriends somebody it's hard to get rid of her. She's extremely loyal.
It's really hard for her to relate to anyone, so she sticks around if she gets an emotional attachment(this is one of the reasons she's still with Tobias, despite the constant arguments). She can be quite deceptive though, and will pretend to be friends with somebody to find out gossip/information or to gain any other benefits she can(gets other people to do her homework etc).
She avoids responsibility like the plague, and fails most of her school assignments.

Carrie and Roxanne have been friends since they were kids, they're practically sisters. Roxi relies on Carrie for a lot of emotional support.
This makes the friendship rather difficult for Carrie, especially because she doesn't understand/support a lot of the stuff that Roxanne does.
Luckily though, Carrie has her friend Charlie to vent to about this kind of thing. Charlie and Roxanne don't really get along, mostly because Charlie resents Roxi for depending on Carrie so much and Roxanne doesn't like having to compete with Charlie for Carrie's attention.

Roxanne's mother, Reign, died in a car crash when Roxi was only 12 years old.
Not knowing who to turn to, she shut herself away from the world and became addicted to the internet(dun duun duuunn), she didn't talk to anyone at school and generally just avoided people, except for Carrie.
Then when they started highschool Carrie met Charlie and they became friends instantly.

One night Charlie invited Carrie to a party at her brother's house. Carrie drags Roxanne to this(despite her objections), where Charlie introduces Carrie and Roxanne to her boyfriend, Drake, and his brother Tobias. Roxanne falls for Tobias almost straight away and spends the whole party following him around.
Since then Tobias hasn't been able to get rid of Roxanne.

That's about all I've got so far x'D
I've been trying to work out a proper back story for my characters ;u;
Especially since Roxanne used to have a horrible backstory where she was a werewolf/catgirl/vampire/lesbian XD;

I'm not even sure if anyone would be interested in reading all of that anyway, but I have put a lot of effort into it so far. Any suggestions on storylines would be cool too, cuz right now I've been working on character development and back stories and don't really have any idea what to write as an actual story for them. (I probably will never post the story to dA, cuz I'm not a very good writer- I just do it for my own entertainment).

Oh, also, her fav colour is yellow, idk if that's obvious or not haha

Some more images of Roxi can be seen here;
