Organized by Artist
Inspired by Super Mario RPG, Star Ocean: The Second Story, and many more of my fondest memories playing role-playing games as a kid. These are the kinds of characters I would design if I was making a mecha-themed fantasy RPG. My goals were to be funny, draw inventive designs with a lot of personality, and be a bit bolder and more unusual with color usage. Thanks goes to Paul Segal for suggesting the "Gems of Castelaria" name.

This new series of submissions has a few new characters added to the roster, as well as reworkings of previous designs. (Yes, I know there wouldn't be staples visible in ALL of these spreads, but I like the staples.)

Which ones are your favorite?

My goal was to be funny, draw inventive designs with a lot of personality, and be a bit bolder and more unusual with color schemes.

Basically, these are the kinds of characters I would make if I was making a mecha-themed fantasy RPG :D

Please disregard the run animation in my previous deviation, I've got much better ones here!

Fairly self exlanatory this, just click them buttons! The first two just loop, the last one has a bit more to it.

The quality of the videos suffer in this format, as does the framerate. Not sure what's going on with that, the raw movies are smoother than are shown in this little flash animation!

Edit: to watch the final movie that these animations were created for, go here: [link]

A long overdue update of the second Zoid I ever designed, the Blue Sovereign is a huge transport Zoid capable of underwater, surface, air and (gasp!) interplanetary travel. Although a transporter, the Sovereign is well defended. The most notable are the verging-on-excessive three-barrelled cannons situated on the top deck and the broadsides along the 'seam' of the Zoid.

Aerial Zoids are launched off the dual runways at the front, and larger birds can take-off and land from the hangar/pad thing in front of the dorsal fin. The dorsal tower is a two-deck command centre and bridge. Land/sea zoids can be deployed from the mouth and another ramp extends out the back. The huge main engine cluster provides thrust and when required can punt the whale Zoid into space. The Zoid is capable of vertical take off and landing - the pectoral fins swivel down, as do the six separate engine pods to the sides of the main engine cluster.

The Blue Sovereign also has a whole host of support Zoids, more on those to come! I'll also be doing some close ups and maybe even some battle scenes when I'm totally sure I'm happy with the design. Modelled and rendered in the NX CAD package. This project was originally just meant as an update of an earlier Zoid (the Blue Emperor) but it quickly became its own thing.

The good thing about the Zelda universe is that it's technically possible to create alternate stories with relative ease..and that led me to think...what if the hero and villain roles were reversed?!

Link has been raised his whole life with the knowledge that he is the chosen hero.. a fact that has given rise to a massive ego. His naturally cunning mind has developed into a manipulative, scheming mechanism bent on getting exactly what he wants.

This was made for the recent Catalyst Game Labs book/PDF "TRO: Prototypes".

this is an Ultra Protomech, not a full-sized mech.

It's an original visual design made to fit in with the other protomechs. I did not work on the stats or back story.

:bulletgreen:BIOMETAL SNIPER JOE
While not all of the features of the Protoman Biometal could be mass-produced, this so-called inferior model proved to be just as much a successful weapon for WASP as it also possesses the Absolute Defense ability. Interestingly enough all of the Biometal Sniper Joe users are in fact female.

:bulletyellow:BIOMETAL PICKET JOE
A disguised varient of the Sniper Joe designed to infiltrate zones where military units are not allowed such as construction sites or mining areas, the idea being immediate response to threats in areas not typically under secure conditions. However because of their covert status they cannot use firearms and are reduced to only utilizing a boomerang pick ax. All users of this Biometal also happen to be female.

:bulletgreen:BIOMETAL HAMMER JOE
A more heavy artillery class unit that unfortunately cannot utilize the Absolute Defense shield due to budget restrictions, instead spinning their mighty hammers to duplicate the effect with the cords. Turns out all users of this Biometal are male.

:bulletyellow:METALL
A small armored drone used for security in several areas and facilities. While very weak their helmets are indestructable.

:bulletred:SHIELD ATTACKER
An armored drone used for instant deployment in combat scenarios, able to fly at incredible speedramming into targets with their indestructable shells.

:bulletblack:BATTON
A camera drone that is meant only for recon, however faulty programming will often result in them relentlessly chasing down targets. Their design is more organic compared to most robots so that they can better blend in with natural settings.

:bulletgreen:CRAZY RAZY
A humanoid attack drone that has the unique ability to seperate into two halves if heavily damaged, the top half has advanced hovering ability allowing it to pursue targets more effectively.

:bulletred:BUNBY TANK
More or less the Crazy Razy robot with a different body, its hovering ability in its split form is not as advanced but the trade off is that it actually has firepower with its dual napalm guns.

DECEPTICON PRIMARY INFANTRY UNIT THE SEEKERS
ALTERNATE MODE; Varies
ENERGON ABILITY; Psycho Scream

It is sickening enough that these creatures are created from captured Autobots stripped of their spark or just straight up corpses lifted from the battlefield, but then there are those among the Decepticon fold who willingly allow themselves to be stripped of all they were to become one of the many purely for the decepticon cause. However a Seeker is "born" it is just one more worker drone for Megatron and his generals to use however they please.

Expendible assets to their core they only know to carry out their orders without any regard for their own existence, they will wingly sacrifice themselves by their own hands if it will further Megatron's agenda. All they have to live for is Megatron, he is all they have to die for, and sadly they couldn't be happier....
___________________________________

Following suit with Beast Machines and TFPrime I went and made a Decepticon "mook", in this case a fembot who looks like a H.R.Giger creature in Cybertronian form and instill terror upon first sight in their otherwise feminine appearance and feminine movement.

The younger twin brother of Arcee. There was a time when he was known by Wheelie, taking the form of a speedy velocitron almost the mirror image of his sister. But then he was sent to a jungle planet, his skills as one of Cybertron's greatest programmers needed in the Autobot research convoy, over the course of many stellar cycles he found himself finding his more organic surroundings to be his true calling. And now here he is sporting a beast mode, bringing with it new skills and capabilities that he never knew he would possess right into the fight against the Decepticons. He was late for the party but now rejoined with his sister Arcee he serves in Optimus' unit as its residential wild animal......and computer nerd.

Nice to get back on some video game work! Kinda missed it! Anyway, made a collage of my favorite video game villains that I've come across in games! Also, just for the fun of it, why dont you guys comment and tell me who your favorites are? Each of these masters of darkness and evil have all played a role in some of my favorite games. Tormenting the heroes of the game, and giving them a reason to BE a hero. What would we do without you guys? Evil never looked so good. >:)

What if video game characters were dinosaurs? With this series you can find it out. On today's episode: Super Mario Bros.

Plumbasaurus malleo: (Mario Plumber Lizard)
----------------------------
A stocky pachycephalosaur that lived during the very end of the Cretaceous period. Its' diet consisted mainly of red and green mushrooms, and the youngsters of the species ate many of these mushrooms each day to double their size until reaching adulthood. They also ate the feces of larger herbivores, and would often travel to the places where giant dinos buried their waste - the sewers of the Cretaceous - thus earning them the title of "plumber lizards". The remains of P. malleo were discovered both in the Mushroom Kingdom and in Brooklyn, New York, suggesting that these two places were once part of the same landmass.

Plumbasaurus weege: (Luigi Plumber Lizard)
----------------------------
A species closely related to P. malleo, but taller and lankier like most pachycephalosaurs. It shared the same habitats, and probably the same habits, as P. malleo, but was far more abundant. This find led the charismatic Septimus, the mysterious leader of the notorious Cult of Weegee, to declare the P. weegee a sacred animal and an incarnation of the god Weegee. Furthermore, Septimus claimed that the reason P. weegee was more common than P. malleo is that this animal, like the god himself, could turn other dinosaurs into weegees by staring into their eyes, thus expanding its' population exponentially. But of course, such a feat is biologically impossible... Right?

Innoxiotyrannus flagellolingua: (Whip-tongued Innocent Tyrant)
----------------------------
An unsung relative of Tyrannosaurus rex, I. flagellolingua was much smaller than its' famous cousin - about the size of a horse at most - and was an omnivore, using its lashing tongue to catch fruit and small animals and deliver them into its' waiting jaws. Its' favorite prey are tortoises, which ironically are the Plumbasaurs' greatest enemies due to competing on the same food resources. It has been speculated that the Plumbasaur populations centered around the the Innoxiotyrannus' territories, and perhaps even tamed the beasts.

Koopasaurus testudineus: (Tortoise-shelled Koopa Lizard)
----------------------------
Named after the Kappa, a turtle-like creature from Japanese mythology, this giant ankylosaur had a spiky armor, like a snapping turtle's shell. Its' remains were discovered in regions which were low on Plumbasaurus fossils and high on tortoise fossils, leading several biologists to speculate that the Koopasaurs' bad temper had driven the Plumbasaurs away, and that it may have had a symbiotic relationship with the tortoises, though of which nature is yet unclear. Unlike other ankylosaurs, its' belly was not unprotected but rather covered in bony armor, making this herbivore nearly invincible.

Rhincodonorisaurus purpureus: (Purple Whale Shark-mouthed Lizard)
---------------------------------------
This theropod, unlike any other known land animal, had a gaping, filtered mouth that resembled that of a whale shark. As such a mouth was extremely inefficient for hunting, the animal may have used it to filter insects, birds and small pterosaurs from the air, or fish, krill and shrimp out of the water. Strangely enough, this animal also had no cloaca, leaving the mouth as the sole orifice for eating, egg-laying, storage of reproductive organs, and excreting of waste - an evolutionary inconvenience which may have led to its' demise.

What if video game characters were dinosaurs? With this series you can find it out. On today's episode: Minecraft.

Fabrivenator excidus: (Miner-Crafter-Hunter)
---------------------------
Following the mass extinction event at the end of the Mesozoic, the world was almost empty. Only a few dinosaurs survived, among which was the F.excidus. They survived by becoming omnivores-willing to eat anything to stay alive- and thanks to their resourcefulness; they were, in fact, the only animals at the time that built tools and homes, in a similar fashion to early people. The fossil record shows they were mostly solitary, rarely forming tribes to erect greater buildings, and that they also learned to farm plants and tame some of the mammals which had only begun to diversify. Their reign, however, was short lived, and they became extinct after a meager 1.5 million years. The reason for this remained unknown, until recently, a wealthy game developer, only known by his alias "Fissure", had claimed during a press conference that he was an F.excidus in a past incarnation, and that his species was fighting a losing battle against mutant and undead dinosaurs created by the meteor's radiation. He did not, however, provide sufficient evidence to his claims.

Correposaurus deformis: (Deformed Creeping Lizard)
-------------------------------
When the first specimen of this creature was unearthed, the fossilized bones turned to ash as soon as they touched sunlight. When the second specimen was discovered, at midnight, the scientists were puzzled as the front limbs were missing, and instead there were two pairs of hind legs sprouting from the hips. At first, it was believed that the bones were mixed; but as more and more discoveries were made, it became clear that this is what the animal looks like, probably due to an odd mutation. Chemical analysis of the bones showed they contained, when the animal was alive, high amounts of sulfur, phosphorus and other explosive chemicals, making this creature a walking, smelly, slimy living bomb. All C.deformis fossils so far were discovered near F.excidus settlements, implying that the two species shared the same habitat and even fought each other, each contributing to the other's extinction.

Globodraco hades: (Spherical Dragon from Hades)
------------------------
Another creature that survived the K-T extinction, it in fact thrived in the destruction created by the meteorite. This peculiar descendant of Carnotaurus was well adapted to volcanic regions; Bladders full of hydrogen in the animal's abdomen allowed it to float safely in the hot air currents above the lava flows and catch pterosaurs in flight. The same bladders also gave it the ability to breathe fire; perhaps for locomotion in mid air but also as a weapon, to roast and kill fleeing dinosaurs which it would then descend to eat. Eventually, however, it became extinct when temperatures dropped, and the volcanoes in which it made its' home shut down.

Aegriraptor luctificus: (Grief-Causing Robber)
--------------------------
Another famous K-T survivor, these swift hunters lived alongside F.excidus, and in fact were their greatest enemies. While they undoubtedly actively preyed on F.excidus, the fossils discovered so far indicate that they were more interested in destroying their homes- perhaps a clever hunting strategy meant to decrease the victims' chances of survival against harsh weather and other threats, in order to get more easy meals. They also, thanks to their thumbs, were able to manipulate their victims' tools, though they were unable to invent anything on their own. Although A.luctificus were smaller in numbers than F.excidus, a single A.luctificus was able to tear down an entire F.excidus village, possibly by luring C.deformis swarms into the villages or by extensive use of TNT. The F.excidus had their own ways of getting back at their assailants, often by imprisoning them in confined rock chambers and leaving them to starve. Both species became extinct at the same time, as one was dependent on the other- though they probably wouldn't have wanted to admit it.
