Ive by StringlessKite Ive by StringlessKite
An app for 6XL [link]
Watercolor, pencil, copics, lotsa time.

Name: Ive
Age: 22
Height: 5'8"
Not your good, friendly neighbour. She tends to ignore people unless they intrigue her or can be manipulated into getting her what she needs. She is very resourceful as she lives on the swamp. Not in a village or town, she just moves around the unfriendly land with the huge fang she has tucked in her skirt, the Beartic skin she sleeps on, some herbs she smokes or chews and a drum. While she obviously wouldn't admit it, Ive loves her team and would jump into fire for their sake. Their everyday relations look a bit less cordial tho...

Brief history:
As a child, Ive lived with her mom in a very small, secluded village on the swamp. Well, more precisely, they lived next to it, since her mother was exiled, and as far as Ive understood, it was because of Ive's father. The poor girl could never approach other people and as she grew older the exile was getting a heavy burden.
When she was 12, her mother died of a fever and Ive decided to wander alone rather than seek help from people who rejected her and her mother.
Reading and writing aren't neccessary to survive in a jungle, unlike the knowledge of edible fruit, herbs and potential dangers, scrupulously taught to the little girl...

Cheeba the Vileplume:
Ive began her journey, which turned out to be more difficult than she expected. Unable to find any food, she started digging for roots... and found an Oddish instead. Startled Pokemon sprayed her with poisonous powder, but desperate girl chased it despite any attacks aimed at her. Ever since Cheeba the Pushover hanged out with Ive. Vileplume does not fully understand the greatness of the power it posseses, her values are brought out by Ive. It's easier to survive together, right?

Sol the Volcarona:
Iva and Cheeba were travelling together when they found some suspicious ruins/abandoned village. After investigating it for any useful goods, they found an egg. What hatched was a Pokemon clearly believing that he was designed for something better than wandering on a swamp. Well too bad. Hangs out, because it learned to appreciate the small things, like finding a bit of water when thirsty or a berry when hungry. Still, loves to act like a Primadonna. Loves to eat paper, as you can see on the app...

Xango the Glaceon:
The team ventured into the mountains, but the weather conditions got harsh unexpectedly. Tired, scared and starving, Ive saw a Glaceon eating some half-frozen prey. As her Pokemon were already exhausted, Ive decided to fight over the food on her own. Glaceon could not believe it, he could finish her any time he wanted, yet the girl still risked everything for her team. Moved by such behavior, Xango took care of the three of them until the blizzard stopped and in the end, decided to join them. Harsh but caring, really reliable and experienced. The leader of the pack.

:new:Ogoun the Haxorus:
Sex: Male
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Mold Breaker
Characteristics: Quick-tempered
Aqua Tail

Great battle instincts, strength, agility... But he isn't the smartest one out there alright. He decides what he wants on a whim (I wouldn't say he ever thinks anything through) and once the choice was made he will pursue the goal. Wouldn't let anybody boss him around - Ive manipulates him into doing things that would benefit her (rarely takes a lot to get him into fighting mood). Having said that she acknowledges Haxorus as a part of her team and always considers his wellbeing in her schemes. Ogoun joined the team in the first place because of Ive's manipulation.
He likes timid Cheeba but doesn't get along that well with Sol. Acknowledged Xango as the leader of the team only after losing to him in a duel.

Reason to join:
Even Ive, who hates people has to visit a town sometimes. It just so happened, that everybody was talking about a great tournament, prizes, fame, travelling to faraway provinces... And man, isn't it nice to kick some sorry @** once in a while?

Woah, what a striking style! A fellow Moeras factionier too! ~
StringlessKite Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Haha thank you :) Though I believe there is a LOT that needs to be improved still
Pepelu-Haruhara Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012
oooh..! A watercolor artist..! It's such a delight to have another traditional artist on board! o// v //o
StringlessKite Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Haha I'm delighted as well, though they're quite a bothersome tool to use ^^" I hope I can get better at it throughout the competition! Out of sheer curiosity, is there anyone else using watercolors?
Pepelu-Haruhara Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2012
So far the only other contestant I've seen who uses watercolors is ~QuiXoticProphet. ` v `
(although I could be wrong...I've seen so many contestants come in..! ):icondizzyplz:

wow I wasn't expecting you to make up a character like Ive, its such a contrasts from your BFOI app, its awesome, the watercolors on Cheeba came out great and the red lineart on Xango suits its colouring perfectly.
You named your Volcarona Sol, I've heard that name before.... I wonder where ;P
that name suits it well, them flaming red wings.
The group looks interesting too if only i knew about it earlier, i would have loved to have had our characters interact.
Oh well, ill be cheering for you!! :iconcheerplz:

Hello Synced! Long time no see!
Well I just thought the tournament could be more fun if I used a new char, new set of facial expressions, different interactions than what Ascot does :D

I'll try getting the watercolors to listen to me as I go, many of the 'effects' you see there are accidental + I learned about the tournament only a couple of days ago... But I'm really glad you like it!

Hehehe... I wondered if you'd notice. Apart from Volcarona being the sun pokemon, it was THE Sol that made me choose the name ;P

I guess you might not wanna make an NPC, so how about I let you know if a round opens for new trainer apps or something? If I last that long that is? I'd love to interact with your char as well! I bet you'd come up with something amazing, I can expect everything from you ever since I saw Turbinekomon~

Thanks for the encouragement, I'll root for your Digimon entry! :tighthug:
Rawrkeeper Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012
Watercolors are so hard i applaud you for using them.
Heh, Sol fits it perfectly.
Yeah I have to be part of the main contestants to have to motivation to produce proper artwork for the group, please do let me know.
Oh you :iconshaplz:
I, unfortunately, didn't go through the digimon competition, its all good though
StringlessKite Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hold your horses, I guess I'll deserve some applause if I manage to paint something really awesome :D

Haha I totally understand, I don't think I could submit NPC stuff either.

Sucks the Digimon thing didn't work out for you, but that made me think: There is a ton of OCTs going on all the time: [link] will start in a few months I guess. There is BFOI2 as well, even though the 1st edition was a pain in the butt, maybe the next one will be better?
How about we make a collab app/2 separate applications with related characters when an interesting OCT shows up? Like lovers or siblings or something along those lines?
I think it might be motivating if you have somebody else out there for ya and it would be fun to collab with you again ^_^
Rawrkeeper Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2012
You want a lot of applauses lol
yeah i'll skip on BFOI this time like you said it was bit of a pain in the but.
Hah, sure that sounds like a great idea.
