...because saying she is a "bonkers" sounds really awkward.
soooooooooo yeah. I noticed there was a despicable lack of bonkers fan art on dA, so I decided to fix that. also decided to trade in the hammer for bombs. why? because I can.
I based her coloring off of suggestions from friends and bonkers EX from return to dreamland.
really had no idea how to even start drawing fur, so I went crazy.
HEY LOOK MORE GOLD BUCKLES.
and I have her with fumu there just to show the size difference, it does not mean that she actually picked fumu up like that.
and yes. she is flashing the "L" sign at you, loser.
you know what else I found out while designing her? BONKERS IS FRICKIN HARD TO DRAW.
just as a warning, Im going completely crash and burn with this bio, so please forgive little inconsistencies. edit
: unaru is a recent addition to this bio. he is another oc of mine. find him here
species: popstar gorilla
quote: "Bakuda wants big boom!"
appearance: bakuda has dark red-brown fur that covers most of her body, other than her face, stomach, fingers, palms, and feet. her large ears are slightly pointed, and her right ear is pierced with a small gold ring. some of her hair is tied back in a small ponytail, held by a grey band. she has large, heavy grey armor covering her chest, shoulders, and wrists. navy blue jeans with ragged ends are held in place with a grey belt with a gold buckle. she taller than king dedede, although she tends to slump over. her eyes are covered in shadows.
history: living in popstar's jungle areas, bakuda began to take interest in the outside world when she saw another gorilla (bonkers) traveling away on his unknown mission. curious, but unwilling to leave the only home she has every known, she observed the circus that bonkers had escaped from and was fascinated with the strange creatures in silly clothing. everyday, she watched them, learning their movements, habits, and even began to understand their language. but when they started making plans to capture more "crazy big apes" for their circus, she took the hint and ran, but not before she raided the clowns' supplies and set a good amount of the circus on fire. it was here that she found fireworks of all kinds, as well as the ingredients to make them. not quite sure what they were, but also sure that they would be missed, she grabbed the lot and took off before they saw her. while she travelled without any real destination in mind, she dabbled with the stuff that she stole. it didn't take long for her to figure out how the fireworks reacted to fire, and how mixing different materials created different colored explosions. over the years during her wanderings, she perfected the art of fireworks (and bombs). eventually she started visiting villages (not pupu village yet) and once the cappies got over their initial terror, she made a good amount of money selling her excellent fireworks.
when traveling into pupupu land, she came across a strange, large egg. thinking she found dinner, she cracked it open... and a baby ice dragon feel out! she was instantly smitten by the feisty little lizard, and after feeding it, the newly named Unaru warmed up to her too. he has been traveling with her for 3 years now.
personality: bakuda is quite the teenager! completely carefree, she isn't afraid to throw her weight (literally) around when others are badmouthing her. despite her rather slow demeanor, bakuda is actually quite intelligent, and also extremely self-confident. unfortunately, she doesn't have language down yet, and is often taken for a fool when she cant understand others. she also has the tendency to speak in third person. she doesn't seem to have "laws" down either, but what can the police do about it? rather gullible, she is easily talked into scams and has been cheated of her money in the past. of course, once she realizes this, well, lets just say that those conmen will be spending their stolen cash on hospital bills. clearly, she doesn't have the most controlled temper, nor does she like things that she doesn't understand, and usually remedies this by taking whatever it is apart. while she shows blatant disrespect for anyone older than her, she enjoys being with younger children and showing off her (smaller) rockets.
weapon(s): bakuda's first means of attack are her fists. her sheer physical strength is astonishing, as well as shattering. she is surprisingly agile and flexible as well, and easily performs flips and jumps to evade enemy attack. but just to back her up, she has a seemingly unlimited supply of bombs, ranging from small but loud firecrackers to massive explosives.
weaknesses: while she has very thick armor covering her chest, shoulder, and wrists, her hide certainly isn't invulnerable, not to mention she is a huge target that's almost impossible to miss. her rather "explosive temper" (pardon the pun) also tends to get her in trouble. she is extremely overprotective of unaru, and he can be considered a weakness of hers.
likes: creating fireworks; showing off; figuring out how something works; having free time; ignoring the authorities; clowning around; blowing things up
dislikes: rules; being called stupid (a word she now understands very well); not understanding conversations; being left out; clowns
she is a bit of a grease monkey, and loves working on anything mechanical. she has become a bit of a handyman/woman, able to fix anything, just so long as her hands fit around it.
bakuda has never actually met bonkers, but he has become a symbol of change to her.
she has moved to pupu village, and is currently selling her fireworks.
she absolutely dotes on unaru, often treating him like a doll. he seems to both enjoy this, and be alarmed by it.
I am dead.
ill fix this pile of crap in the morning. along with my comic page, if I can.
