Yay! I filled my own meme.

The original, blank one is here.

So I tried for a weird combinatory setting.... grim steampunk fantasy horror... I imagine a lot of steampunk-like technology that incorporates magic elements. There are outright mages, but they're a rare, secretive sect - so of course there's two of them in the main cast. In the end, I think the character I like the less is the Hero himself. Still, the grumpy badass inventor always tweaking his steampunk sword for enhanced badassery is a cool concept... I just hate his looks! ...he was actually even worse before I completely redrew his face.

I don't think I'll do anything with these guys (and girls), but it was fun! YOU should all do it too ;) ...you wouldn't want to make the eeevil mage cross, would you?

EDIT 2017/05/20: I've been thinking a it about this thing lately, and decided to retroactively give all these character NAMES, because names are good.
The hero/inventor is Eddigan Lowson.
The sidekick/sister is Lenney Lowson.
The third wheel/mage is Benticar Fairkey.
The love interest/rival is
Vannice Shelleigh.
The romantic rival/ex-husband is
Jacquen Jostier.
The sidekick's romance/waif is Sylthia.
The big bad is Zulter Thrumm.
The lieutenant is Yiltash - since I know these two combine later, I made his name an anagram of Sylthia
Their combined form is still Sylthia.
So there you go!

This is awesome! I love the third wheel. And the second love interest is really pretty :meow: Did you ever create anything with this awesome? I would love to see it :D The last two panels are awesome. Great composition.

Cool :D
Also, I guess that would mean the Hero has to kill his sister's love interest to save the world?! D:

Awesome.

And the REAL hero turns out to be... the tomboyish little sister!

FÉLIX WHY ARE YOU AWESOME. I wish I could read a book/comic of this. Or play a game of it. Any of the above.

I love the eeevil mage's skeletal hand (since he has a normalish human appearance).

I'm sorry you're not all that happy with the hero's appearance. Since he looks a bit broody and has facial hair, he LOOKS like he might be a villain -- which is why I like that he is the hero.

I imagine his and the love interest's competition/romantic tension would be witty and snarky and awesome.

The love interest reminds me a little of Beatrice from Umineko no Naku Koro ni. [link] I wonder if you'd enjoy reading Umineko...

Mad scientist woman with cigars = win. Now all she needs is an overly elaborate steampunk monocle.

Nice. I'll definitely add this to my faves.

I love these character creation sheets because they always make me either reevaluate a bad decision I've made with one or more of my characters, or to reinforce the good ones.
