DracoPhobos's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Film & Animation
I'm an animator, painter, and a character designer. I draw influence from 50's and 60's era Disney shorts while trying to put some of my own stylistic spin on it. I'm slowly working towards producing a pilot cartoon with some of my characters. I also dabble in game design, and I have a game project that I started in 2015 that I work on from time to time, including mechanics, quest and character design, and soundtrack. I prefer to work traditionally simply because I have the most experience with it, but I'm slowly acclimatizing myself to working more with digital tools.



seriously what's up with the tanked page traffic? other friends of mine said they've been getting this too, like i only have 3 ideas for why this is:

1: whatever updates that deviantart has been implementing in the background have changed the way tags or search results work

2: July is an international off-season for deviantart

3: (and the most ridiculous) deviantart specifically somehow tanked our individual site presence and relevance a la YouTube

wowo my page traffic is shit this last week

I love your character designs, they are exceptionally unique and intriguing, and offer a view into a world that I want to see more of! I would be honored to extend an invitation to you to claim one of the remaining slots in the FTO Kaleo Spirit Trials, if you are interested! I think your skill with creating characters in unique worlds will be exceptionally beautiful to see in the group, and more importantly, that you could have a lot of fun during the Trials with your own Fledgeling if you are interested!

If you think you would enjoy receiving a Fledgeling Kaleo of your own and joining in the adventure of the Spirit Trials that will be beginning later today, let me know so I can create you a Kaleo Fledgeling with randomized traits that you can design however you want for the Trials. Kaleos are a closed species created by Comet-Draws, and this is the first FTO event we are running to allow people to receive one for free and have an adventure that gets them into the world of Kanu in the process. We've been working really hard so we can make the event thrilling and memorable. Here is a reference and info on the Kaleo species, showcasing a standard, common trait Kaleo, though there are many other common and rarer traits and variations as well with many different rarities you could get through the process of the random generation.
Kaleo Info - Edited by Comet-Draws 
If you choose to sign up, you will be given a Fledgeling (adolescent) Kaleo that I will livestream or record for you (whichever you prefer!) to show you the process. it uses a random number generator to create traits, which can be anything from common to all the Ultra Rare traits and mutations that normally cost quite a bit of money. This is to encourage diversity and to make the species population feel like it has genetic variation and distribution in it that imitates real species' populations. 

Once you have your Fledgeling's traits, you can design your Kaleo however you want: color, gender, size, personality, everything is up to you! The trials are dangerous and exciting adventures that all Fledgeling Kaleo set out on when they are on the verge of adulthood, and those who complete the journey and survive find new things about themselves and grow into fully accepted official adults in the Kaleo-Junction group that you can keep as an official character and use however you want in the group!

There are four different journeys your Fledgeling can choose to set out on; East, the trial of Wind and storms in the towering trees. South, the Trial of Fire and vast plains full of lumbering beasts. West, the trial of gathering Waters and of the restless and deep Western Sea. And last, North, the Trial of Earth and blizzarding Mountains, and of cold. Whichever direction your Kaleo chooses will offer drastically different challenges on the journey to survive, and will challenge your fledgeling's ingenuity, intelligence, perseverance, strength, and will. Whatever their strengths and weaknesses are, they will all be tested to the fullest during their trials. 

For more info on this, the Elder Kaleo of the Trials gives a deeper description of each of the trials and what they entail. 
Spirit Trial #1: 20 FTO Slots (BEGINS JUNE 1st)TRIALS START JUNE 1ST
Admin Note:
Only newcomers (people without a Kaleo) can claim a slot and will have one month after claiming to complete the trials. If you do not complete the trials in that time frame, the slot is no longer valid. If you have family issues, sports, or other activities that prevent you from completing the trials on time, our trial master Casma will sort things out (message either Nobody, Nobody or Nobody). We will generate a Fledgling Kaleo for each participant in the slot using the Kaleo randomizer. Thus, the Kaleo will be assigned random traits to ensure diversity, while the owner can choose any other aspect of design they wish within guidelines, such as color, size, gender, name, personality, etc. If the owner wants to purchase traits with a higher rarity, they can do this at any time using the potions. All Fledgling Kaleos will not become officially registered into the master list until they complete the Trial of Spirit. For the d

Let me know if you are interested, have any questions, or want me to generate a Kaleo for you so you can get started on the design!
