To make the ends meet Iisjah searches for some extra cash in many different places. Underground fighting maybe not be the first option but it's an option nontheless - Iisjah may not be the strongest guy around but he has a few tricks up his sleve.
This got a bit bigger than I anticipated as I just wanted to paint a portrait xD I kinda like the paint style I used here I'm so proud of that wall
Finally I can upload it! (together with *rejlan we had an idea to upload them together for all LKL team but it's too hard coordinating everyone so finally we decided to post them anyway)
Iisjah O'Riley in all his current glory Please ask away if you have any questions about him - love them x3
The animals on his arms are pigeon Muddle the Magnificent and rat Peanut :3
Iisjah is first and foremost an opportunistic happy-go-lucky guy bursting with energy with enough bad luck to give an army He tries to look at the good sides of life even if it chews him and spits him back. He's greedy as they get, but seems to not to be able to hold onto any money for long. He's immensely curious of everything. Combined with his stubbornness it got him in a heap lot of trouble many times (but who can resist a closed chest or a cursed letter? ) He prides himself in his thieving abilities (even if due to his bad luck they fail when he most needs them), his agility, which helps him get out from dangerous situations and his skills with knives. He's surprisingly good with children and apart from his two kids which he takes care of on weekends he's a nanny for his niece and his crime bosses daughter. He can get dangerous when he means business although he won't kill if he has any other options. He's also a really good singer. Sometimes still suffers from PTSD symptoms (post traumatic stress disorder) after an event back from his teens
He's half-alive. He can be outside in a sunny day or eat and drink normally, his heart beats and his organs work normally. But he still has difficulties crossing flowing water (that's why he wears his green necklace with his gvare dirt inside) and he can't swim in salt water. He also needs blood and has any other vampire peeves. He generally tries not to kill people for blood (as his master taught him). He can change his shape into every living thing he just ate (provided it had blood). He also can change into a dirt pile, piglet and a female version of himself.
Born into a family of sailors he always wanted to go in his fathers footsteps but he never got the opportunity. He run away from school at an early age (partly because he felt neglected by his parents partly because he got into a bad crowd) and started living of off thievery. He was turned into a vampire when he was 17 by Sanet de Anuvar with whom he lived for five years, finally going on his own at the age of 22. He fixed his relations with his family and married year after he went on his own from his master. He had twins - Suzanne and Zoltan. Unfortunately his marriage lasted only a year longer. Now he has an ongoing romance with *Smoludozerkas Blady Berlakin [link] (that's the really short version - if you need any details ask away x3)
Due to his bad luck and the dangerous life he's living he's scarred all over, making him look a bit like patchwork when you think about it. The most prominent scar is that on the right side of his face, around his neck and two around his wrists. Other are quite random. They can be seen here [link] Has hair all over his body, and a few days old moustache and a beard - he likes the bad guy look they give him He has 5 tattoos on his body -empty parchment on his right arm and two towers combined by a bridge on his left (his city's crest) with a background of a sea wave, a giant cockroach on his back, a circle on his bellybutton and the 'insert here' joke tattoo over his left buttock xD His clothes always look a bit tattered - he just can't get them to stay new and undamaged for longer than few days. He mostly wears city fashion clothing - shirts, vests, nice leather shoes (think something alongside steampunk or USA fashion from 1900-1910 (can have a modern twist)). Loves flashy colours - can wear them all (likes yellow, pink and blue the most) His ears move and emote (like dogs do) He always wears the green bead necklace - he has his grave dirt inside of them which protects him from certain things.
Yesterday in comic school we were given the task to redesign any character you wished... so I picked The Groke and tried to make her even more terrifying than she already is.
Maybe she became so desperate for love and warmth that she would go to any lengths to get what she wanted, even kill... and eventually she became nothing more than a soulless bloodthirsty being. And she would gain the ability to shoot icy spikes out of the ground as well, to spear her victims... what do you mean, i'm not a sadist The stitches with cold steam seeping out of the holes in her body were added mostly for a cool effect, but I always imagined that her body was a some sort of dress or at least made of cloth, so maybe her seams started to burst because all that anger and coldness inside of her is too much for her body to handle? or something i'm just speculating...
My teacher liked it so much that he took a picture of it and he was even interested in knowing what a Hattifnatter would look like in an alternate universe like this... (i did sketch one up but i didn't get the chance to show him)
