Uh, page one of the story of how three characters created for the current Seventh Sanctum contest [link] meet. They are, in order of apearance, my own seventh sanctum contest entry Chaos Sunrise, 's character Midnight Rouge, and (eventually) 's Drake Legend. Inspired by the cross over image here [link] Why would three such disparate personalities come together as a group and hunt for treasure? I didn't know either, but here is the first page of the story of why.
All the art and coloring is mine. I have no idea what I'm doing, but I'm having fun with layers, I'll tell you that much. Also, I'm beginning to regret giving Chaos such a multicolored outfit.
This is an entry for the Characters - Extreme! contest for Seventh Sanctum [link]
So let me introduce you to Chaos Sunrise: This gentleman has droopy blood-red eyes. He has neck-length, straight, royal purple hair which has a form that reminds you of a pair of wings. His body is rather sleek. You can't help but compare him to a cobra waiting to strike. He has prominent cheekbones. (bishotron) This sword's guard is arc-shaped. Its grip is formed like a chimney with smoke coming out of it. (sword generator) Purple Pendant of Muteness and Charisma. Spirit's Armguard of the Screamer (magic item generator)
So, this guy has a nice tattoo on his right arm, and also lots of layers, tight bell bottoms, and also he can't talk because of the pendant that he can't take off. It's CURSED! Ooo. The armband was an attempt to counteract the pendant. It doesn't work but he likes how it looks. I took the chimney smoke idea literally. I tried to use dawn colors in his clothing and in the background.
What's this? It's not shitty (not deliberately, at least), and it's got nothing to do with Working Men!
Instead, this is an entry for Seventh Sanctum's Extreme Character Contest. The Fantasy Name Generator Extreme gave me "Drake Legend", and the Bishotron gave me the character description, which I've cunningly included within the image itself.
Drake Legend is a badass pirate mage. You will note that his cutlass is roughly as long as he is tall, and that he can shoot fire from his left hand. He can also wreathe the whole thing in flames and straight punch scurvy bilgerats, which is why he keeps it bare. Also pictured is his totally bitchin' armband, which is enchanted to make him waterproof. Guy can swim around with his arm on fire and not even give a care because that's how he rolls.
I'm actually damn proud of how it turned out, after about six hours of off-and-on work on it. Especially the hands. Look at those hands. I used my own for reference, which is why they're so beautiful. :3
UPDATE: Furthermore, if you want to follow the amazing adventures of Drake Legend and two of his extreme peers, you should totally check out ~SuperAshBro's fanart ([link]) and ~persephone-the-fish's fantastic comic-in-progress, starting here: [link]
Next page of the story of how three characters created for the current Seventh Sanctum contest [link] meet. They are, in order of apearance, my own seventh sanctum contest entry Chaos Sunrise, 's character Midnight Rouge, and (eventually) 's Drake Legend. At last an explanation of how that shadow works. I made it up. An awkward silence now will ensue, as that is Chaos's greatest skill given that he can't talk.
Exposition time! See, the myth of Drake Legend is a little bit like the myth of Robin Hood: there's a couple possibilities for a historical basis, but a lot of it is amalgamation of actual events and made up stuff.
Third page of the story of how three characters created for the current Seventh Sanctum contest [link] meet. They are, in order of apearance, my own seventh sanctum contest entry Chaos Sunrise, 's character Midnight Rouge, and (eventually) 's Drake Legend. More talking and a magic flashlight.
Why indeed. I am enjoying the statue painting, by the way. And also the usage of YEE OLDEE ENGLISHE up there. Sorry about that. Also, I hope likes what I've done to his character in terms of design, as my current drawing style is a bit different than his. I have a feeling I'm going to hate painting his clothes almost as much as I hate painting Chaos. Like I've said, it's not the drawing that gets annoying, its gimping up these things using a fucking mouse. PAIN IN THE ASS.
