jane the river spirit
jane, our river spirit, has arrived!
i wanted to play around a little more with the different spirits and i didn’t think any of the trees i found fit her so i made her a water spirit instead.
i decided to go with a river spirit as opposed to like a lake or something because of the "like a river runs dry and leaves it's scars behind” part of heart of stone. also the blue color scheme works surprisingly well for jane.
there she is! (this picrew) i don’t really have a reference pic for her so...just imagine a big old river. i was a little bit skeptical about having her skin be that shade of blue but it actually works really damn well. most of the design choices i made for her were literally just cause they looked pretty but i wanted her to have a tattoo like anne and kitty to mark her as a spirit. this was the only other option for tattoos so i decided that it represents the shape of her river if you were to look at it from a bird’s eye view. her necklace was also a gift...from a human that meant a lot to her so she treasures it a lot. (ooooo look at me teasing plot)
as a river spirit, she has control over basically everywhere her river flows and it’s banks. considering the fact that her river is actually pretty long, jane’s (relatively) a lot stronger than either of her cousins. however, if she is a far distance away from her river, jane gets weaker and more dehydrated, with the water from her river being the only thing that can quench her thirst, especially in situations where she’s been really far away or has been away for a long time. jane’s health is reflected upon her river and vice versa. jane’s got a cold? well, let’s not go wading today, it’s freezing. part of the river is blocked up for whatever reason, be it natural or manmade? jane can’t feel her leg today, and won’t be able to until it’s cleared. like all typical water spirits, jane has really strong healing powers, but they’re pretty draining to use so she leaves the smaller stuff to kitty. the water in the river itself is really medicinal and pure, so animals are often found near its banks. in emergency situations, jane can even redirect the path of her river and create small streams that branch out from it, but it takes a lot out of her so she tries not to do that. her tattoo changes accordingly when she does this.
jane just wants to see the people she cares about be ok. that is what she strives for everyday. being a water spirit, it’s in her nature to care about others, especially her family. she’ll do anything to protect those she cares about, plain and simple. jane can usually be found wandering along her river, making sure it’s in good condition, singing songs she’s made up. if she’s not there, she’s spending time with kitty and/or anne, probably egging anne on to do something dumb (but we don’t talk about that, she has an image to uphold). jane also keeps a garden that she tends to very meticulously. she is a firm believer that talking to your plants will help them grow and does so often, either through songs or just by retelling what she did that day. she’s proudest of a white poplar she named edward; it was on the verge of dying when she redirected her river for it and revived it. she constructed her entire garden around it. she is quite devoted, to both her cousins and plants.
alright, that’s it for jane for now!! i’ll probably throw out random tidbits here and there as it comes to me, but thanks for reading!!

It's sad your store launch didn't go as planned but THANK YOU for being so communicative about it! You did all the right things given the circumstances and I hope you're not too much in the hole. We love you for making and sharing your art, even if we can't legally wear it on our bodies 💞 💗💓
no no THANK YOU for being so understanding about this whole debacle! I always want to be transparent about my business because i know i’d want that from other businesses. I apologize if I came across a little unprofessional, but i’m a human being and this was like my worst case scenario come to life. Luckily, printful is refunding me the money i paid upfront so i don’t think i’ll be losing too much, and I was able to refund everyone for their shirt/sweatshirt purchases.
at least now that the worst that could happen... happened, nothing can really get worse *knocks on wood* but i was so stressed about this whole thing that i never got the chance to see that I nearly sold out of my sticker packs which !!! i’m so happy! thank you everyone who has supported me and who will continue to support me even though this terrible situation happened. i love you all so much you have no idea
