So this is a character I've come up with to base a game design around in my 3rd year animation for gaming program. In the future a mysterious affliction begins plaguing people after a meteorite crashes onto their planet. It contains a dual life form known as the 'Helix Virus', a symbiotic entity that has a stable existence until it contacts a third living organism.
Coming in contact with the virus is fatal within about an hour, during which the host experiences an enormous strength increase and fantastic psychic powers. Civilians afflicted by it have nearly no chance for survival without immediate amputation of the affected area, but the military has created containment units to allow for the creation of super soldiers by taking advantage of the Helix's side effects. Soldiers willingly accept the virus and are fitted with armors which keep the side effects mostly under control.
So that's this guy's story. He's in more of a robed attire because he takes more advantage of the magical than the physical aspects of Helix effects, and should be light on his feet instead of heavily defended. All of that will be up to the player in the end, this is just one variation.
Uzziel the Sword of Heaven. Fighting for God against the hordes of Hell, he carries with him the sash his wife made for him. His wife was one of many who died in the Great Flood after God became angry that angels and humans were having children together. He carries it to remind him of his wife, and to remind him not to disobey his creator again. During a battle against Hell's army, he becomes cursed by both sides while fighting Lucifer enraged by the death of his son and is cast out of Heaven but not into Hell, instead to earth, where he works to regain his place in Heaven.
This is just the beginning, I'll go into more detail with more drawings of this character I do, that's if people like the story and the drawing... I can always change the story if people don't like it... so any comments and constructive criticism people have, I'm eager to hear.
Hope you all like the drawing, took some time to do.. I tried to do a "Sin City" kinda thing and I only colored the sash... whether it was a good idea.. I don't know..
Full view please, you can see more of the detail.
Please note: the story on here is entirely made up.
Name: Im going to say that he doesnt remeber his name so he stuck with a name he made up when sum1 asked him for it. Age: 22 Gender: duuude Height: Fairly tall.. But NOT short and NOT 2 tall... lol thats not very helpful.. Eyes: Lightish hazelly brown almost yellow Hair: Mousy brown Skinlive, generous tan Nationality: Hes english/irish but he doesnt remember that Sword: I called it vice coz its super cool and bad ass. Its got a butterfly at the crook of the hilt (does that make sense?) Its a basic looking sword (aside from the crook) and the colour is a light green and glassy looking.His hilts are changable. They come in a case his chick carrys for him. Look: He doesnt wear shirt coz he sweats like a tired dog (when fighting) i like drawing shirtless guys (i haaate folds in clothes).
History: The Irish catholics were unhappy with the penal laws that were taking place in Ireland and so 40 catholic priests came together in secret hoping they could resolve the issue of the english taking over their government by sending american merchants to england where they kidnapped the first son of some very royal young man (and his hot wife) who was in line to the throne (or close to it) and then bought him bak to ireland where he was raised by nuns, tutored by the catholic priests and trained by americans influenced by the east (ie like they fight as bad ass as the japanese samurais) since he was old enough to stand. All for the purpose of having him grow up to assasinate the royal family and sabatarge the english so that they can let the irish run their own government. The preists felt he would be suitable for the job at the age of 20 and so he left on a ship with an escort of 100 men and sum nuns. Unfortunatly the nuns didnt want to see their little boy they raised (and/or grew up with) to do scary evil things and so they seized him in his sleep or in the bathroom or wotever and locked him in a barrel half full of rum. The nuns had it planned for a while that another ship pretending to be like pirates or 'wrong doers' with canons and physco weapons that the men on their own ship couldnt deal with, would try to take over their ship and steal their treasures and so the nuns would conveniently hand over the barrels of rum (one containing the boy) to the other ship and then safely sail bak to ireland where the nuns could look after him once more (coz they wuved him) However, a bunch of other men in a massive industrial sized ship wanting to migrate to russia (lol random) came across the ship instead and demanded all the liquer and so the barrals were handed over. the nuns thought it was part of the set up and were very upset later wen they found out it was the wrong ship. And so this guy is off his face intoxicated inside this barrel on a random ship set for russia until a large swell from a tropical cyclone causes inconvenient tossing and tilting of the boat- and since the barrals were still on the deck because the crew were stupid- the barrels rolled away toward the edge. luckliy they were all saved by the crew except for one. unluckily that one barrel that wasnt saved had this guy inside. Long story short- the dude comes to japan in a rum barral. is found by the natives. has the crap beaten out of him coz hes foreign and they were illegal at that time i think but was luckily saved by sum nice buddist priests and got to stay in their temple for sum time where he learned to speak some japanese and impressed them with his western/eastern style of fighting. They teach him some of their ways of life too. Coz buddists are peaceful and nice. the rum and the beatings cleared his memory of who he was and what his life purpose was but he still remembers how to fight (he thinks he irish coz his accent is tainted with it). And is given the last name oriley. he goes off on his merry little way to get out of japan before he is killed (felt bad at the temple coz the priests wud get in trouble for letting him live there) until he meets a south african chick who also wants to get out of japan. she happens to be lugging around a sword that was left to her to pass on to someone that would use it good and so they meet up and he (being a nice guy and all) keep the baddies away with his sweet skills and so she gave hiiim the sword and made up a story that it was destined for his use and he was like all stoked and shit and had a change of mind and decided to stay in japan and get better at fighting with his sword. She carries the changable hilts for the sword and he carrys the can-do attitude. While the catholics are freaking out about their boy not making it to england.
p.s the south african chick is random but she would be an awesome character.
Okay that whole story is a crock of shit and im not entirely sure about some of the history in that and i doubt someone could stay alive inside a barrel out in the sea long enough for it to reach japan and rum is bad but not bad enough to kill that much memory. I just thought itd be interesting to have a royal white boy hanging out in japan. Also my character is supposed to have a background or something. cooouldnt think of anything elseee. Soory its so long.
Okay, the original idea of the look of the character...
He's a VERY classical canon looking guy:
Helm- horned, eyes flashing from under it, face can't be seen.
Armor- black, spiky, heavy, with skulls here and there. Has glowing symbols.
I hope I've managed to do it.
Kurkach is an NPC character from a RPG I'm dungeonmastering (is that a verb?)
Now here's his profile:
He's from the North, likes "roaring" musical instruments and can scream and roar very professionally. Likes wearing black and metal things. His favourite activity is cutting, smashing, cleaving, tearing and you-name-it things that can bleed. He relaxes from this with a lot of alcohol and things with breasts. He is also recently very popular for his wonderfully artistic performances with senceless screaming and guitar. Can exhalt the croud to the point they start smashing things with almost as much passion as he.
And yes, his name is Kurkach (people from BG will get it), and his family are barbarians He didn't want to be called simply Kurkach the Barbarian though, so he left home in a quest to become (in)famous.
