When Pie was designing the set he's on I remember her mentioning "Pyro" shark.
Well. Fire is something that makes me uncomfortable. I had a house fire in 2010 and as much as I like to believe that I've healed, I have a long way to go.
Speaking a lightly about those things just puts a bad taste in my life. I never thought lightly of fires in my life, but since the house fire, just thinking about a making a joke even in good spirits would rid me with guilt.
Anyways. I saw Ares, and I just knew I needed him to join my babies and I feel like he's also a bit of a healer for me, a reminder that fantasy is fantasy and that it is ok to enjoy life, and that I need to let myself move on from the fire just like ever bad thing that came my way.
XD Seriousness aside, here is his profile.
Personality: Fawner - Spiteful
Usual Mood: Blank
Marking Type: Sugar Freckle
Eye type: Animalistic
Ear type: Droopy
A sneaky shark that has an odd fixation with fire. He comes off as a dedicated lacky when he's taking orders, but little does everyone know, he's playing every side to get ahead. He has a pretty good position in Thetis' syndicate, helping make sure money and product are moved safely, but he puts it all on the line by sharing information with rival groups.
Hi there guys! there goes a image done a couple of years ago for a book series. This time the Orisha/Yoruba god of paths: Eshu.
PSCS/bamboo/6hours/music: Demon's Crest - Beyond the Colosseum [link]
Èṣù (other names include Exu, Eshu Eleggua, Esu Elegbara, Eshu Elegbara, Elegba, Legba, Papa Legba and Eleda) is both an orisha and one of the most well-known deities of the Yoruba mythology and its related New World traditions.
He has a wide range of responsibilities: the protector of travelers, deity of roads, particularly crossroads, the deity with the power over fortune and misfortune, and the personification of death, a psychopomp. Èṣù is involved within the Orisa (also spelt Orisha or Orixa)-Ifá system of the Yoruba as well as in African diasporic faiths like Santería/Lukumi and Candomblé developed by the descendants of enslaved West Africans in the Americas, where Èṣù was and is still sometimes identified with Saint Anthony of Padua, Saint Michael or Santo Niño de Atocha, depending on the situation or location. He is often identified by the number three, and the colours red & black or white & black, and his caminos or paths (Avatar) are often represented carrying a cane or shepherd's crook, as well as smoking a pipe.
Èṣù is a spirit of Chaos and Trickery, and plays frequently by leading mortals to temptation and possible tribulation in the hopes that the experience will lead ultimately to their maturation. In this way he is certainly a difficult teacher, but in the end is usually found to be a good one. As an example of this, let us look at one of his patakis or stories of the faith. Èṣù was walking down a road one day, wearing a hat that was red on one side and black on the other. Sometime after he entered a village which the road went through, the villagers who had seen him began arguing about whether the stranger's hat was black or red. The villagers on one side of the road had only been capable of seeing the black side, and the villagers on the other side had only been capable of seeing the red one. They soon came to blows over the disagreement which caused him to turn back and rebuke them, revealing to them how one's perspective can be as correct as another person's even when they appear to be diametrically opposed to each other. He then left them with a stern warning about how closed-mindedness can cause one to be made a fool. In other versions of this tale, the two halves of the village were not stopped short of extreme violence; they actually annihilated each other, and Èṣù laughed at the result, saying "Bringing strife is my greatest joy".
In Brazil, the female counterpart of Exus are called Pomba Gira. Èṣùs are constantly related to Hermes/Mercury for their heraldic function.
Hi there guys! a pic done a long time ago in a livestream session. This time Viracocha or Wiracocha, the creator of the pre-inca world, want to know more about him?
based on the classical representation in the inca world [link]
Let´s wikiattack! Viracocha is the great creator god in the pre-Inca and Inca mythology in the Andes region of South America. Full name and some spelling alternatives are Apu Qun Tiqsi Wiraqutra and Con-Tici (also spelled Kon-Tiki) Viracocha. Viracocha was one of the most important deities in the Inca pantheon and seen as the creator of all things, or the substance from which all things are created, and intimately associated with the sea. Viracocha created the universe, sun, moon and stars, time (by commanding the sun to move over the sky) and civilization itself. Viracocha was worshipped as god of the sun and of storms. He was represented as wearing the sun for a crown, with thunderbolts in his hands, and tears descending from his eyes as rain.
Viracocha rose from Lake Titicaca during the time of darkness to bring forth light. He made the sun, moon, and the stars. He made mankind by breathing into stones, but his first creation were brainless giants that displeased him. So he destroyed it with a flood and made a new, better one from smaller stones. Viracocha eventually disappeared across the Pacific Ocean, walking on the water, and never returned. He wandered the earth disguised as a beggar, teaching his new creations the basics of civilization, as well as working numerous miracles. He wept when he saw the plight of the creatures he had created. It was thought that Viracocha would re-appear in times of trouble.

Hi there guys! Today is September 16th, an important day in Mexico, "El Grito de Dolores"....Wait! what is that? you dont speak spanish or known anything of mexico aside taco, burrito and cojones? SHAME ON YOU! .... today we will take a bit of Mexico history
This is an image done later 2009, for a commisioner in Mexico, I was provided with a sketch to use as base. ------------------------------------------------------------------------
Miguel Gregorio Maria Antonio Ignacio Hidalgo-Costilla y Gallaga Mandarte Villaseñor[ (8 May 1753 – 30 July 1811), more commonly known as Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla or simply Miguel Hidalgo, was a Mexican priest and a leader of the Mexican War of Independence.
As a Mexican priest, Miguel Hidalgo was assigned to a church in Dolores, Mexico. After his arrival, he was shocked by the poverty he found. He tried to help the poor by showing them how to grow olives and grapes, but in Mexico it was discouraged to grow those crops because of Spanish imports of the items(Mexico: From Independence to Revolution, 1810-1910 edited by W. Dirk Raat page 21). In 1810 he gave the famous speech, "El Grito de Dolores" ("Cry of Dolores") also known as El Grito de la Independencia ("Cry of Independence"), was uttered from the small town of Dolores, near Guanajuato on September 16, 1810. It is the event that marks the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence. As he then marched across Mexico, he gathered an army of nearly 90,000 poor farmers and Mexican civilians in his rebellion against Spanish rule. They attacked and killed Spanish soldiers in small groups along the way. But Hidalgo's army lacked training and was poorly armed. Eventually, Hidalgo's army ran into a clan of 6,000 Spanish troops which were well trained and armed. Much of Hidalgo's army fled or was killed. Hidalgo himself was later executed by a firing squad on July 30, 1811
Since October 1825, the anniversary of the event is celebrated as Mexican Independence Day.
Mexicans! Long live the heroes that gave us the Fatherland! Long live Hidalgo! Long live Morelos! Long live Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez! Long live Allende! Long live Galena and the Bravos! Long live Aldama and Matamoros! Long live National Independence! Long Live Mexico! Long Live Mexico! Long Live Mexico!
¡Mexicanos! ¡Vivan los héroes que nos dieron patria! ¡Víva Hidalgo! ¡Viva Morelos! ¡Viva Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez! ¡Viva Allende! ¡Vivan Aldama y Matamoros! ¡Viva la independencia nacional! ¡Viva México! ¡Viva México! ¡Viva México!
▫ Name: Sakari De Nola ▫ Age: 32 ▫ Gender: Male ▫ Height: 179 cm ▫ Birthplace: Venice, Italy ▫ Occupation: Bookprinter and moneylender. Does assassinations for the templars on the side. ▫ Sexuallity: Pansexual (the term pansexual didn't exist during the renaissance, but let's just say that he lives by the saying "love has no gender")
▫ Likes: Money, telling stories, men/women, swords of all kinds
▫ Dislikes: The backside of everything, because everything good comes with a backside.
Sakari has grown bitter due to the life situation he has had and has always needed to be able to stand up for himself, causing him to show a rather cocky approach to certain people. He is sly and mischievous when it comes to business but in private he is a pretty kind, sweet and talky guy with a burning desire to know more about pretty much everything.
▫ Biography: Born to an Italian-Turkish merchant from Constantinople and a Venetian Jewish woman Sakari grew up in Venice with four siblings. The mother died during childbirth and the father was hanged for reasons never explained, leaving Sakari to take care of his siblings alone as the oldest brother disappeared without a word. To provide the remaining family with what they needed to survive Sakari did what he had to. He started to lend money to christians from the family’s savings with a brutally high fee. It is a rather profitable business as Christians are not allowed to lend money themselves as it is seen as a dirty business and leaves that to the Jewish population instead.
Sakari has always had a special liking for swords and has with time and training become rather skilled when it comes to handling the blades, though more like toys than weapons. He fell into the Templar order via Njal, the blacksmith behind most of his swords, and has with his silver tongue managed to talk himself into becoming an apprentice under the ex-assassin’s mentorship.
▫ Additional info: - He wears a templar cross just to show his loyalty.
- Fluently speaker of Italian, Turkish and Hebrew.
- Has a natural way of handling/playing with swords.
Name: Evan Mac Bhriain Age: 15 Height : 167 cm. / 5'4'' ft.
Personality: Evan is a diligent guy who is a little self-conscious, but wants to keep a positive attitude so he takes a light-hearted approch to most situations by poking fun at stuff and being a goof in general. He is very active and hardly ever stops moving, it makes him spontaneous and unpredictable but it also makes him really bad at subtlety, something which he's aiming to fix. At his very core there is fiery intensity and heartfelt emotion but it's clouded by guilt since he feels it brings the worst out him, so he can't bring himself to be very serious on purpose. When he's not being playful however, there's a chance a more serious side might show.
Background: Evan used to travel though different places, simply letting life take its own course, until a certain gruesome "incident" left him feeling in distress and lost. After going through some rough times which still don't let him sleep well, Evan wants his life to have a goal, to know he's doing things for a cause and not just wandering around aimlessly, and have some reassurance. He likes to trick his enemies, making them think they have the upper hand. He runs very fast and knows some parkour, prefers combat without a weapon but can handle a knife well too. He knows that letting panic take over is a big risk, so he tries to cheer up any tense situations.
For This group looked like fun and with nice people, so I wanted to join :'D I'm looking forward to see what happens in it since it's my first time joining something like this XD
Warlock: Lochan is courteous and friendly to both acquaintances and strangers. He offers hospitality and shelter to those who visit his place. However, his curiosity is inmense, so he will insist on making coversations with different people and ask them about their life even if it gets a little uncomfortable, simply because he's genuinely interested. The thing he loves the most is gathering knowledge and curious facts.
He's naturally very charismatic so it's not hard to chat with him, but even if you decide not to talk to him he still has ways to check up on you. It just so happens that he has "eyes" in many places within his forest, and they watch people's every moves. Especially when it's people he's never seen before. Despite Lochan's bad habit of looking at people without their knowledge, he's not the type to judge. He believes that everyone has interesting quirks and is content with everyone being different in their own way.
He doesn't like conflict, but he won't criticize you if you need to cause it. Doesn't matter to him if you end up causing damage to his house, since material possesions are easily replaceable. His friends however, are irreplaceable, and he will not be as forgiving if you cause harm to them. He lives in a big fancy house located on a hill in a forest owned by his family, but with very little population other than animals, lots of plant life, himself and his butler. He comes from a high class family that was born in Weisteria. They don't keep in touch a lot with him, which is part of the reason he likes to spend time with other people.
Personality: -Watchful, mindful. (Paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally) (Bringing one’s complete attention to the present experience on a moment-to-moment basis) -Likely to help others at least a little. -Curious. Talks with people and likes to know them. -Unlikely to get angry, but trying to test his limits might build up resentment over time. -Not afraid to take the first step and take action. -Will show antagonism towards anyone who threatens someone he cares about. However, most of the time this antagonism is not shown in the form of physical harm. He'd rather be subtle. -Appreciates taking good care of one's image. -Observes others a lot and takes note of anything relevant.
Positive traits: Sensitive (Having or displaying a quick and delicate appreciation of others' feelings.), takes the iniciative, observant. Negative traits: Meddlesome, resentful, a little imprudent. Fears: Imprisonment Goals: Experiencing the world. Random life things: Fancy clothed outside but sloopy clothed at home, makes pillow fortresses, does gardening at home himself, doesn't eat beef. Appearance: Fancy, soft and clean.
Abilities: Using magic he makes little critters out of nature, like tree leaves and grass, that can move around and observe people as if they were cameras. They record what they see and show it to Lochan in real-time, through a magical interface. He also makes critters that speak out loud about what they have recorded. All critters blend really well with nature, so they are a bit hard to find. They can be made of leaves, flowers, sticks and even tree bark.
Warlock deal: He exchanges secrets for secrets. If you tell him a secret about yourself, he will tell you something you want to know about another person of your choice. Secrets are really hard to find though, so your own secret should be good enough to exchange for it. The deeper secrets you have to tell, the better secrets he will tell you in exchange. He is willing to bargain though, so if you don't have any deep secrets, you could tell him a good amount of regular secrets and he might exchange it for a good one.
Lochan's butler familiar: He is in charge of taking care of the house and attending Lochan. He's been working for him since Lochan was born and will protect him with his life. He doesn't particularly like strangers so he might look at them menacingly, but he won't do anything to them if Lochan is not in danger. Lochan considers him his closest friend. Espen finds joy in the simple things in life. He values prudence and good judgement and appreciates it when people show these qualities. But if necessary, he's not afraid to be a little rough. In fact, he's willing to get really violent if it's for Lochan's sake. It can be messy though, so he'd prefer it if the guests tried to behave, because he has a bit of a short temper for unpleasant guests. He refers to Lochan as "Young gentleman Millward". By nature, Espen is a vegetarian.
Espen's buffalo form: This is Espen's true form. It's really strong but he only uses it if it's demeed necessary and with Lochan's permission.
's ocs are mysteriously interesting~ But it turned out I destroyed her ocs..... Especially the chief girl... I even forgot of "what you want me to draw" thing like you want simple background, but I overdo it by using many types of brushes..... x'P so... is it also categorized in half-body? o3o There are way too many mistakes. Need more practice. Either way, thank you for commission with me. It was very fun learning something new.... The variety of characters and also colouring style... I hope you like it.
Inspiration: my lovely sensei, my inspired artist~ You guys should check her gallery~ Laces:
That's right punks. We pulled the old switcheroo on you, instead of Layla and Barrel, me and are using AU! Amelia and Cherry!! THIS TIME IT'S PERSONAL
Name Amelia Atom
Weight ?? lbs (what do you care!?)
Age 20 (and knows everything about the world)
This is a very different Amelia folks. In this alternate universe there was no war on Amelia's world. So her dear old pop headed a very successful sweater making company called GWAND. She grew up like a spoiled rich girl, with her parents just being the nicest people you could imagine. The spoiled 16-year old brat that she was, Amelia Atom (as she changed her last name) ran (spaced) away from home as soon as she could pilot a lazer-bike!
Nowadays she spends all her time living out all her wildest fantasies. Like being a space outlaw, and picking up bounties with a girl she partnered up with a few years back Cherry Bomb
She's cold, calculating, and mean as hell. Swears more than the average sailor (just like the regular Amelia you'd be used to seeing) BUT she hasn't quite gotten the whole sympathy thing down. She's self-centered, and reckless. Rarely caring about others besides herself and what she can gain. It's possible deep deep DEEEP down she' has a good heart still, but hell if anyone other than Cherry would have seen that old thing.
She's a bounty hunter by trade, and a fierce fighter regardless. She's excellent in up close fighting (preferring to just punch and kick to victory) and has a couple of Guns she managed to keep after the bike exploded! (in the audition) A pistol that fires quickly, and a grade 3 plasma rifle, able to fire large bursts of energy!
Under all that Bad-ass exterior is an average human. If she's not careful (and reckless as often as she is) She can be shot, stabbed, electrocuted, burnt, kicked, punched, and all that jazz. If you try to fist fight her though be warned, she was probably that bully in school that beat up everyone.
Name: Guy Fox Age: Young for a detective Show Name: The Law Personality: Guy is a bitter, tired old cop. He's not really that old though he's just a little dramatic about the stuff he's seen and the things he's had to do (I think he injured a guy once) But he's still angry and mad all the same, and tries his darndest to uphold the law in the Terrace. Together with his eager ammo he puts a stop to anyone trying to put the town, or the mayor in danger. Weapon: "The Cleaner" his trusy side-arm Skills: Catching trouble before it starts, playing the good cop-bad cop routine by himself
Jazz (as she prefers to be called) Was born on an Earth colony in the furthest reaches of the Theta Quadrant. Living in such a remote place was difficult, but became quite impossible when slavers and crooks started mining the planet's ZERLOT supply. The planet quickly died, and due to a series of unfortunate accidents (she doesn't like to talk about it) She ended up without a family, and without a home by the age of 14.
The first good thing to happen to her life was being picked up by Galactic Police, where she eventually became one of their best and most promising recruits, (thanks to the diligent efforts of Manny when it came to written exams of course) She protects and serves the galaxy so that others can have what she lacked for most of her life.
Jazz is optimistic, hard headed, friendly, and reckless. She almost always tends to act first and think later, and it's gotten her into tons of trouble, but her heroic efforts have nabbed her tons of respect and admiration by the police force (as well as many citizens around the galaxy) She is extremely kind however, and always tries to do the right thing at great personal risk. Although she isn't opposed to it, she has police code ingrained in her training, so she'll try to subdue the culprit before she'll try to kill them.
Lastly she's a huge dork and loves to tease/flirt/mess with people.
She's had specialized officer training. Pretty good at hand-to-hand combat, excellent shot, and quick to the draw, she's also pretty acrobatic. Able to use her jet boots with great ease and precision, (she couldv'e gone pro man! If there was a pro for that kind of thing!)
Other than that her abilities only extend to what the average/below average human could do in any other category. She's a tough cookie, but she isn't gonna be solving the toughest problems without Space-Google.
She has a soft-spot for the under-privileged and homeless. So much so that it can blind her judgment in certain cases. As much as she teases Manny, in the same light she is rather protective of him and he could be seen as a weakness if it's used against her.
Physically she's a skinny human, so she could get squished pretty easily.
