Monster High OC: Mariana Hemos by holhez21 Monster High OC: Mariana Hemos by holhez21
As promised, I present......MARIANA HEMOS, finally complete and colored. =D

I'm REALLY happy with how she turned out in the end; in fact, I think she's (currently) my favorite out of the bunch in terms of final product. I love them all to death (no pun intented), but I'm just really pleased with how Mariana especially came all together.

If you may notice she appears to have specks of very faint brown all ove rher skin. This is a small reference to Mariana's past/history:

Centuries ago, a teenager named Mariana Hemos, had been born disabled. She was blind, and therefore unable to see anything at all. Mariana suffered through life as she grew accustomed to her blindness, and her parents - Dean and Marie - were always there to support her.

However, when Mariana turned sixteen, she was walking home from a friend's house. It was winter, and the weather was bitter cold and the wind fierce. Mariana grew confused, and was lost to wander in the darkness. When discovered in the morning lying almost frozen in a ditch, doctors feared the worst. They did not realize that Mariana was simply in a coma. Heartbroken, Mariana's parents buried their daughter. But still they had hope that she was alive, and so they left a bell next to her grave, which was attached to Mariana by a string. If she were alive and awoke, she would ring the bell, and her parents would unbury her. Her parents went to sleep that night, praying that their daughter was not dead...

The next morning, though, the two discovered that during the night, the string attached to the bell had broken. Someone had been pulling on it, and hard. Mariana's parents, fearing the worst, unburied her...

They opened the coffin to see their daughter, dead. The top of the coffin was bloody. When the string had not worked, Mariana had tried desperately to claw her way out of her grave. She had tried so desperately, her fingernails had ripped off...and her hands were covered on blood.

If you are bold - or foolish - enough to summon her, you need only say “Bloody Mary” three times while turning before a mirror. If you hear a bell ring, Mariana's spirit will appear before you. And that is the last thing you will see, for she will scratch your eyes out with her bloody hands...


As a result of being buried alive, when Mariana was "born" into her Bloody Mary spirit form, her immortal self still contains a part of her living life. She cannot remove the dirt from her body, and it is almost like a scar that she will always have to live with.

She also has bell earrings to pay homage to her little life story as well. The bells will ring whenever someone foolish enough to do so summons Mariana (she is her mother's apprentice, so she answers to "Bloody Mary" as opposed to "Bloody Mariana" ...for now), at which point she must scratch their eyes out. However, if you're familiar with her bio (see here: [link]), Mariana absolutely hates blood, and it disturbs her something terrible. Soooo, her pet falcon Cruor does most of the eye-scratching for her. ;) He's also the reason her jeggings are ripped... Let's just say that Cruor is a very tempermental falcon.

The pattern/textures on her shirt and pants were taken from Google; I do not have the skills to create those. ^^;

P.S. The wonderful ~evilnat123 is the genius behind Mariana's original history. I changed a few things, but the bell (essential part) was their idea, and thus they inspired a prominent part of Mariana's design.

Hope you like her!

That's actually not even the full story. The whole of it is a lot more violent and heartbreaking. It can be found here ([link]), but it's got some mild references to sexual themes and gore/violence. So if you're not comfrtable with that sort of stuff, I advise you don't read it.

And thanks! She's one of my favorite MHOCs (of my own, of course),so I'd extra glad you like her.

Very nice, although next time I'd resize the image before uploading. :P
It's a rather dramatic story, but somehow fitting. ^^

She's a "Bloody Mary" ghost/spirit. ;) I should really include links to their bios when I post their artwork...especially since there's literally months that pass between when I post bios and when sketches/colored drawings appear. ^^;

And thanks very much. =D

I've never watched Ghost Whisperer, so any similarities are completely coincidental.

I prefer to watch what some would call the more "scary/manly" (:rofl: :XD:) version of Ghost Whisperer......Supernatural. ;)

I'm glad you think so. I was most worried about that, since too much red would've looked kind of stupid personally. Even if she's a bloody mary :XD:
