So okay, Joelinne is pretty much entirely my character, but he started off as a Ratatouille OC and was a part of the fanfic I wrote based off that movie, so that is why this is submitted under fanart. 8'DD
Anyhow, Joelinne is a very.... umm, unique... character. He's insanely bipolar, meaning he can switch from uncontrollable hyperness into nearly suicidal depression all within the short time span of usually 3-4 days. His half-sister is Colette Tatou (the female chef on Ratatouille for those who aren't well-versed in their Pixar trivia) and his half-brother is Horst Joliet (the German sous-chef with a huge forehead.... the last name isn't from Ratatouille, I made it up...), and you can see him talking to her in the second sketch.
Chibi Joelinne = pointless randomness. As the text implies, you only wish he were that happy and cute. xDD;;;
Oh, and Mallory is his father, if you were wondering. I might expound Mallory's criminal background some other time.....
The very last sketch of him with his hair trimmed and wearing a suit and tie actually never happens. It's more of an alternate reality deal, because he actually never lives to be that old (about 20 or so). He dies of a suicidal overdose just before his 19th birthday (which actually would have been last Saturday, September 5.... 8'C His birthday would have been on September 17). The reason for the suit, tie and haircut is because if he had lived, he would have become a concert pianist. I mean, his fingers could fly. (And Pierre was the one who trimmed his hair, btw. ;D)
Soooo...... yeah. I have to say, Joelinne has to be one of the deepest characters I've ever made up. I wish I could tell you more about him but it would take forever!! Hopefully this will help you understand a bit more about him.... if you have any more questions, just ask.
Well, a lot of it has to do with the events leading up to it... of course, his mental behavior has a lot do to with it as well. [link] I explained a lot about him in this random old journal entry which was a detailed OC bio thing by *CurlyHairedDemon. I think I explain a lot more about him there. ^^
Awwww, why thank you! 8'DD I think so too kdsjaf if only he had lived longer and become a concert pianist, I would have totally dated him. xDDD;;
Yeah, the poor kid had horrible self-image issues. It wasn't until he was 18 he figured out his father was one of the most well-known criminals in Paris, and he realized that he had only followed in the steps of his horrible father and felt that he wasn't worth it. 8'C
I'm hoping to do more of him, too; kinda explain his story in better detail. He's such a fun character, when he's not all suicidal and depressed... so, yeah! 8'DD
