Long time no see.
[ https://youtu.be/Dlr90NLDp-0 ]

While this song, verbatim, doesn't exist in-setting, it's a good example of the chant she enjoys.
In lieu of the thread's theme of originality, I will go over aspects of her creation.
!! Longcat Ahead !!
I set the groundwork to begin:
>typical animu titty-monster
>high raw power, high available energy, knows some rare in-setting techniques like flight & skill stealing
>mascot for her faction
>poster-girl for various, basic energy skills I would devise
I balanced her out with some negative traits:
>no control over her energy once released (aka no remote manipulation)
>no grasp on weaving simple energy patterns (equivalent to just throwing straight punches in our world)
>her lack of refined technique suggests a coddled childhood
I added a hobby, & thought about her past & family:
>she enjoys chant
>so, she's religious & her family is too
>but, I don't want her to be a preachy bible-thumper or one of those secretly slutty girls from a private sorority, so she's introverted
>this means she prays & chants in private, & she's shy about her voice, regardless of her talent
>this also means she's socially awkward & didn't figure out her sexuality until adulthood. This raised questions for me.
>if she's religious, why is she a lesbian?
>what does this mean for the religions in-setting?
>does this push her into SJW territory, despite being an "ideal model?"
I think her flaws, her shyness/humility, & her religious outlook separates her from most SJW characters.
Where in-setting religion goes, all I've worked out is that it's nebulous like it is in our world.
All this branches from just a few simple concepts; there are still many things I haven't covered/answered.
While my shitty Dragon Ball rip-off isn't award-winning storytelling, I hope it gives insight on how even the slightest bit of thought can explode & fractal into an original setting/characters.

How do you make a not shitty oc? Is it all about keeping it simple?
>>
>>575507
Good fucking fuck, do I have to wear a wig to smash now?
>>
>>575508
I would say putting in the effort to make a compelling character reduces their shittiness. You can have simple characters be good, like Frodo or Sam for instance, but also complex characters too. Where OCs are concerned, keeping them an acceptable distance from whatever inspired them can increase their quality.
These are all subjective, though, and I have no idea how to make a character objectively not shitty.
Of course, all this is coming from someone who makes his inspirations a little too visible & rambles on forever like an autist. ;^)
>>
>>575509
Well... canonically she's a lesbian, but according to string theory, there's nothing stopping you from fantasizing an alternate-universe version giving you a hot tit-job!

Character is based on a tardigrade. Literal strongest character but his job is basically being a janitor/ groundskeeper.

It's been a while since I've posted, but like gets in the way sometimes. Just sorta getting back in the drawing saddle, so just a sketch for this character.

Hellknight Furica Arette may not be the strongest demon, but will certainly fight to the end no matter how dire a situation becomes. She wields the devil-spear Requiem, the Burgeoning Cacophony, a terrible weapon capable of evoking lightning and damaging sound.
While valourous in combat, Furica is rather shy when outside of armor, and is uncomfortable in large crowds. Since the age of warring between angels and demons has long since passed, Furica acts as an Enforcer, one of the few higher-ranking demons tasked with keeping infernal society as tame as possible.
Furica has the miraculous ability to ‘mutate’ a touched creature’s ability, altering one or more of its properties. For example, it may cause a regenerative creature to produce extraneous biological material when regenerating, or give a clairvoyant creature the ability to see into alternate dimensions.
If I had to pick a song, it would be https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wWHZE14hP8
Requiem emits a sound like a brass instrument, and would be best described as powerful, yet mournful. Still have yet to finalize Requiem's design, hence its absence in the picture.

Is edge necessarily bad, or do people just laugh at it now because of 12-year-old deviantart users? I've been getting into midwest emo music recently and it's influencing my colors (blacks, whites, grays, browns) when I draw. My story is already kinda edge anyway, so I'm kinda worried I'm going overboard

>>575601
Another excellent, high-detail piece. I love the armor & the ambiguity of the character; you don't even use pronouns for them! Wasn't expecting Lufia for their theme, but that's not a bad thing.

>>575602
I unironically don't see the problem. Sure, edge can be hilarious or trite, but the point of this thread is making something that's yours.

And? You guys have a rough story planned out for your characters you'll never write?
>>
>>575525
Thank you!
>>
>>575623
The main goal is the drawing of the character, any story is secondary but helps setting up context.
Writing a novel is on an entirely different level than creating a single character, so I don't see what the issue is.

Here's an old one of mine named Pawn. He could control various objects to do his dirty work. Basically he could make Chess themed golems.
>>
>>575623
ok sure i'll post mine

This is Lucia. She's went through a million name, character, and story changes. The original story idea thinking back on it was a bit of a rip off from naruto. (blonde haired ninja), whereas now i'm thinking of a more traditional fantasy referencing real history. I'll probs just use it for pathfinder or d&d tho at best.


Kingdom of Celestia

Lucia is a sorcerer princess with actually glowing blond hair.

Under their jurisdiction, it is against the law (and tradition) for anyone to begin their name with "lu", this is a privilege reserved only for the royal family.
Here's all the lu names I could think of. Lucille, Luther, Lucia, Luisa, Lucella, Luphona, Luther, Luke, Luka, Lucas, Louis, Lüdrick, Lunaire, Lucester, Lustae, Lury, Lume, Lutzar, Lupe, Luanna, Lupin, Luflora, Lufiora, Luria ,Lustepher, Lustinian, Lum.


Some ideas are: A "mundane-esque" world with a proper magic economy that makes sense, and doesn't necessarily out compete mundane methods of food and military production due to the stresses, energy, and expertise involved in magic (though it does assist where it can).
The world is finite, material, and mundane like ours (no extra dimensions, though there is a god and demons, you generally won't interact with them). Holy relics are instead the greatest source of mystery and power, though they aren't magical. Story takes place during a type on the industrial revolution, except with magic instead of factories (production is still done by artisans). For example "back in my day fireball used to be wee big (holds hands eh size), but these days the fire is all the way from over here to over there." Militarizes are finding that mass infantry formations no longer works due to the increased magical firepower, and are instead opting for smaller companies distributed across a front line (hint hint, adventurer parties). This is especially feasible with the improvements to telepathic magic.
>>
>>575643
shid, here p i c c

I think of the magical revolution as being akin to the discovery of a method of purification of magical ingredients, meaning a higher level of precision and allowing you to do things that simply were not possible before. What is happening is the cascading effect of discoveries emanating from this, revolutionizing warfare.

(loosely analogous to the development of precision machining, thanks to new polishing techniques that create the flat surfaces necessary for precise work)

And here are some other drawings I did a few days ago to get the concept down. I posted the worm dude in the last thread. He was intended to be the main character, but I decided to make him sorta the sidekick that would contrast the skele guy's attitude by being more chaotic and impulsive. He's supposed to use an automatic. I've never really made ocs before so some criticism would be nice too

It's quite easy to make connections to other series when the character's key features are a pompadour and a flashy vibe, something you only see on a select few characters.
I'd rather let people have fun and make that connection (to other characters they like, mind you) than take offense to it.

For what it's worth, I don't have a problem with him. Yes, I did compare him to Metaton, but I don't have an issue with him. It's mostly the colors, the sparklies, the eyes, and the heart belt-buckle.
I think, if anything, he's unique in the fact there haven't been other flamboyant dudes being posted here, and I welcome the variety.

Haven’t drawn much recently but these threads always give me an excuse.
Pictured here is a villain I’ve been working on: Yomi. In a world of magic and mystery, her greatest strength is...
Keeping her eyes open. But with a good pair of eyes, blistering speed, sharp wits, and finely tuned skill, she has just about all she needs to become one of the deadliest serial killers in history, even without magic. Her origins are shrouded in mystery, and many believe she’s not even human, but a force of nature. But really, she’s about as human as anyone else. What she seeks is simply comfort, which, in her mind, is knowing she can survive; knowing that she can kill whenever the itch to do so arises, and get away with it. And the best way to do that is to become such a potent threat that even the best mages couldn’t stop her. But that same desire for comfort could potentially be exploitable, if things didn’t go according to plan, for example...

This is a sudden jump in quality! Now we know that Limill- I mean Lucia- I mean Ionic compound- I mean Ionia canonically has torpedo tit armor. God it's been too long.

Gremory is the 56th of the 72 Spirits of Solomon. In life, she was a duchess, and would often torture revolting commoners by slathering them with honey and sugar and tieing them to trees so insects would slowly eat away at them.
She grew a deep fondness for insects.
Eventually, she was overthrown, and the same torture method she had inflicted on countless people had been done to her. It's said that she would smile as she was being eaten alive by her favorite creatures.

Just as ruthless in death as she was in life, she had been honored as a great duke of hell.

Also I'm bad at drawing guns but she uses a pepperbox revolver and all of her bullets look like bees.

I really thought posing would be one of the last things I'd have to worry about, not the very first.

No, no, no no nononononono. Wrong. Wrong. Read it again.

I establish "canon" underwear for characters sometimes, depending on their likability. For example, undressing a 19 year old Daedalus of his coat would leave him with a green t-shirt, and Przybetta always had a purple sports bra.

Your character design has improved a lot over the years. Also it's interesting, your girlfriend's influence on your style is really apparent, though I wanna make it clear I'm not saying that's a bad thing.
