DRAWING IS HARD, GUYS.

Also what is this? RWBY fan characters? Has it come to this?
Yes. Yes, it has.
(you should watch this series, btw)

Drawing might be hard, but coming up with characters is really easy!

Myrtle Tort
Concept: Southern Belle/Vampire
Female human
Myrtle is very lady-like and charming, but also quite cultured with a strategist's mind. She can do just as much with her smile as she can with her weapon. She is very confident in her abilities and wears her heart on her sleeve, to the point where those are both exploitable flaws.
Semblance: Haemokinesis. You can think of it as blood-bending, though not to the point of taking over another person's body. She mainly uses it to control her OWN body, enhancing her speed and strength (she's stronger than her team mate, Tempest). If there's ever any visible blood (which rarely if ever happens in the RWBY universe, because of Aura) she can move it around and make shapes out of it.
Weapon: It's a giant, collapsible pie shovel. Nothing much more to it! She can use it as a really heavy spear or buster sword with ease because of her semblance.
Likes: Books, long walks, shade, Shade, desserts (especially ones with gooey berry filling, hmm!)
Dislikes: Bullies, boring clothes

Ink Darling
Concept: Goth Peter Pan
Nonbinary human
Ink is an introverted, creative person. Ink fights for the romanticism of it, to make a good story. So pretty often, Ink can't be bothered, and might sit on the sidelines, contemplating, only joining a battle to make Ink's teammates' nagging stop.
Semblance: Repulsion. Ink can move any sort of object mentally with great force, but only AWAY from Ink's body. Makes it easy to avoid hits in battle, though something as fast as a bullet is likely to still get through. A favourite trick is repelling the ground, making Ink hover.
Weapon: A Dust quill, can be used to "write" various spell effects in the air. They say it's mightier than a sword.
Likes: Books, writing poetry, daydreaming, art, tattoos
Dislikes: Adult stuff, loud and nosy people, being referred to as male, being referred to as female

Shade Loa
Concept: Voodoo Priestess/Gunslinger
Female human
Shade cultivates an air of mystery and is always in control, always knowing more than she maybe should. She'll sometimes use that to manipulate people, though she won't abuse it unless the victim did something to deserve it. Her only weakness is Myrtle.
Semblance: Psychometry. Touching an object gives her a psychic impression of its owner. In battle, carrying something belonging to her opponent gives her an edge for tracking them, predicting their movements, and aiming at them, among other things. Her weapon is useful here.
Weapon: It's a pair of revolver/scissors! Aside from the obvious shooting/slashing, she also likes to use them to cut off a piece of hair or clothing from opponents, if she can. The better to use her semblance.
Likes: Meditation, gossip, dolls, Myrtle
Dislikes: Being left out of the loop, being cheated, assholes

Tempest Wendigo
Concept: Gentle Giant/His last name
Male faunus (wolf)
Tempest is naturally big and strong and tough, but doesn't like to fight. He'll prefer a nonviolent solution to problems if there is one. He'll definitely fight to protect his team, innocents, and the natural world, though. Nobody's seen him angry, but most everybody imagines it'd be really scary. (Calm before the storm, anyone?)
Semblance: Healing. He can directly heal through touch, though that tends to be lengthy and draining in battle. More practical is how he can put a little bit of himself (his Aura, you sickos) into food as he cooks, granting that food healing properties.
Weapon: His gauntlets act a lot like Yang's weapon, though they send blasts of wind instead of fire. They can thus be used to just knock people down without hurting them too much.
Likes: Cooking, nature, rock climbing
Dislikes: Violence, confined spaces

The description of Tempest Wendigo makes me remember the saying:

 There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.

The big peoples who are tend to be so 
nonviolent, mostly have a fear to hurt others against their intentions - but when someone convince them to do it (by angered them enough), then the gods help those poor, unforutnate souls! ;)

Shade Loa is my favourite. It is VERY inspireing. The others are cool, too, but it inspires me not that much. But it is random what inspires me. She is very strong, in many ways, like color, silhouette and shapes

Interesting characters. Can't draw, but can come up with characters far too easily. Only have 2 RWBY OC so far, an Aussie guy who hunted for a year anyway who absorbs other's power (either passively or offensively) then uses it either as they do or in other ways & hates company, as well as a girl who it terrified of her power, isn't wanted anywhere because of it's side effect, so is sent for training...

Anyone can draw! But... well, like I said, drawing is hard! :dummy:
Even people who can draw well can't always draw well! ;_;

Always fun to see familiar faces in the FNDM. ;)

So, are these supposed to be contemporaries of the main cast?

Haha! FNDM. Neat name. Hadn't heard that one. I'm not habitually part of any fandoms :XD:

And I haven't given much thought to these guys' place in the world... I think they're probably from another kingdom, though since we don't know much about the other kingdoms, it's hard to figure out which it could be!

Well, based on the end of Vol 3, looks like we will get a look at Haven, and maybe Atlas...

But great looking team, just like all your stuff. Keep up the good work.

One of my favourite artists drawing fan characters from one of my favourite series? This.. This.. *faints from awesomeoverload*

Omg! These are great! I LOVE seeing fan-characters from all kinds of things, but RWBY is a series that holds a very dear place in my heart (I was such a huge fan of Monty years before he made the show), and I've been literally running around in circles ever since the ending of Volume 3, along with random sobbing every now and then. The RWBY withdrawals are so horrible. v.v But this. This is helping. *w* :heart: I love their designs! Do you have background info on them, and their weapons/fighting style? I want to knoooow~

And yes, I do have all these characters thought out, I just didn't think people would be interested enough to bother writing it out ;) BUT, since you asked...

Well, of course we want to know more about your creations! That's one of the main reasons for why I follow your work (along with your art, and yoru sense of humour), after all. And these descriptions are amazing! You are such a talented character creator! *o* My biggest problem right now is picking a favourite, cause they're all awesome. It's a very well-rounded team, both in fighting style and weapons, as well as personalities and appearances. I think you really outdid yourself on these ones! :la: :heart:

I get magenta, sienna, and teal, but what color is represented by "I"?

I do, but RWBY does not just represent the characters' names, but also the dominant color scheme.

Ruby - red
Weiss - white
Blake - black
Yang - yellow

Myrtle - magenta
Ink - ?????
Shade - sienna
Tempest - teal

The name "Ink" doesn't evoke a colour for you?
And you don't think the character has an obvious dominant colour scheme? ^^;

I am puzzled, frankly.

Also there's no teal at all on Tempest. His colour is more of a bluish light grey.

I'm starting to think you believe characters' names somehow have to start with the same letter as their colour! But aside from team RWBY itself, that's not really the case anywhere in the franchise.

I never got into RWBY the way I did with Red vs. Blue.  And yes, I did think that they had to start with the same letter.  Yes, Ink evokes black, but black didn't start with an 'i'
