--> For each of the first 20 people to comment on this journal, I will feature one of their characters. I'll also tell you what I like about them. (don't link me to one, I'll go and snoop and find one I like <3 If you have a folder or collection of chars do link me to that though!)
--> If you comment, please do the same in your journal, putting the tagger on in the first slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!
ELMA MY BABY WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE CRAP THAT YOU WENT THROUGH!?!? You don't deserve it, you poor beautiful cyborg tough motherfucker. Seriously, ever since I saw her design, I've been absolutely in love with her. If I could draw anything robotic worth a dime, I would be drawing her constantly, but maybe in the future, eh? I meant to wenter that contest for her past but I really never had time or drive to actually sit down and work on it T.T. Anyway the design is beautiful, and that tragic backstory FFFFF. I can never resist a character with a tragic backstory. It makes me want to make another character and roleplay with them. Anyway Dees you make such lovely characters, it was so hard to choose, but I love Elma to death <33
I thought I was gonna choose Stormrise just because she's an awesome character, but I FREAKING LOVE TERRORFACE OK!?!? This is one of the first ref sheets I've seen you make, and I thought it was freaking awesome cause I remember talking about Terrorface before. Poor kitty, he seems like such a swell guy, but with that name of his he sounds like he should be some sort of major supervillain. I love how you colored his paw pads to all be different splotches of black. And JEEZ DAT HETEROCHROMIA! There are a lot of times that I think heterochromia makes a cat look really awkward and off-balance but I've found that green and blue work well together. And poor baby, all those scars. Let me love him <333
AHAHAHAHAHAHA LUCIAN HELL YEAH! This is my favorite picture of him and SNEAKY SNEAKY, ISLI'S IN IT TOO! Anyway yeah, everything about him makes me totally and completely in love with everything that makes this hot dark sexy warrior man Lucian. Even though Isli has trust issues deeper than the Marianas Trench, WHO CAN HELP BUT TO ADORE THIS DRAGONSLAYER!?!? His design, his eyes, his personality, his hair, his backstory, his EVERYTHING just makes me want to kill Isli violently and make Lucian love me instead. Seriously.
You know I had such a hard time choosing between Tule and Neera, but you know how much I love Tule and everything about him. And I looked up their apps and Tule has WEIRD EARS and oh my gosh they're so adorable. I can't believe I was the first person to roleplay with this adorable tom. He has SO MANY PERSONALITY TRAITS ON HIS APP and I love it so much, he's so complex and your roleplays are fantastic. I'm sorry D'ialia left such a bad impression on him. We really need to fix that because Tule is one awesome bamf,
I know this isn't Raver Jayy's actual reference, but goddamn I'm in love with this picture. I think what initially drew me in was that he had an orange crop of hair just like my Darky, AND THEN I SAW THAT HE WAS WALKING PAWPRINTS OF BLOOD AND CRYING. Yep, that got me. Anyway he looks so awesome, and this "darker side of Jayy" makes me think that this character has some layers to him! I like the colors to him, the light markings, the purple eyes. Yeah, I'm a sucker for purple eyes. And that TAIL! The short spiky tail of awesomeness!!! Wonderful character!
LOOK at that amazing design!! There are so few snake characters out there, or at least in my immediate circle of friends. There are so many animals that have potential for awesome designs but they're not as in favor as wolves and cats. I love characters who are different species. Yanobi just looks so awesome, especially with that ruff thing around his head! The glowing eyes, the lighting of this artwork, the ferocity in the pose, everything all adds up to make an awesome-looking character! The reds contrast so wonderfully against the dark base coloring, and I love the name as well! I love names that have meanings, rather than one that's just randomly picked (like most of mine XD)
I was just talking about how much I love characters that aren't feline or canine, and this is DEFINITELY one of my favorite bird designs! Cranes are so beautiful and graceful, I love the way they look, and man Iwo is just beautiful!! Her name is so pretty, and I think it suits her really well, from what I read of her personality. I love the way she's drawn here because she looks like a total sweetheart just from her design and the way she looks. And I ADORE the flowers that are all over her, especially the ones on her beautiful flowy tail feathers <3
MY biggest problem with pokemon OCs is that it's hard to stay with the species design (since they all pretty much look the same) while still making the character unique! But I love what you did with this one--the heterochromia, the expression, the green earring, and all! The style reminds me a little of Tim Burton, and you can never go wrong with that, especially when trying to up the creepy factor! :3
