Literature
Woolyne - Oh, NO (Write gift)
Aquila was starting to realize that 'adventure' was not all it was made to be, if for no other reason than the fact it was either harder to find than she'd initially thought, or something had clearly been lost in translation in her grandmother's stories. She had not yet lost hope, given that honestly, Hope was the last thing anyone, specially an adventurer, should lose, but a damper had been thrown on top of her dreams at least. Magni's appearance had been the perfect excuse to leave, and she'd latched on ever since (Who could have known that riding a ship would be so utterly impossible for her).
It'd been an easy ticket out, and the fact he was a warrior in training seemed to go hand in hand with her own aspirations of being a Magi - clearly it was meant to be, and Aquila had taken it as a sign from above that she was on the right path; the path to something GREAT! Something important and legendary that she may, in turn, recount in poorly embellished stories to kittens or her grandkit

(Odyssey) Seifer Horne
(guess what font Fire Alpaca doesn't have)


Name: Seifer Horne
Race: (Senjeun
Age: 30
Gender: Male
Height: 5'10
Weight: 155 lb

Class: Ranger
Occupation: Ranger
Elemental Types: Wind, Nature, ???
Weapon(s): Longbow
Armor: Leather Armor
Magical Items: (Check what your class starts you with)
Magic/Techniques: 

Spell/Technique 1: Wind Dash - You empower yourself or an ally with the wind element making them light and granting them increased movement speed for several minutes. Those empowered will fall slowly and take less damage when falling from high places.  

Spell/Technique 2: The Wild Ways: Seifer channels the power of nature magic to move quietly and in a difficult to detect state through untamed areas, leaving little or no scent or trace of passing. Does not work in cultivated areas or cities, can be disrupted with decay magic. Does not boost attack rolls, only stealth. 

Spell/Technique 3: Mark of the Hunter - A passive skill where you dedicate yourself to one target, when hunting said target you deal additional damage.

Spell/Technique 4: Rejoin the hunt: Sacrifices a bolt from Seifer's quiver to imbue with powerful nature magic, it looses it's use as a regular arrow, though it continues to look like a normal arrow from a distance, though up close the shaft of the arrow becomes damp with sap, and the arrow head seems to become a shard of bark. The target of this unusual arrow is struck with a burst of healing energy, and the arrow itself dissolves into something that looks like pollen and petals or leaves after it strikes the target. Cannot revive the dead, can be disrupted by fire and may not work on creatures strongly attuned to decay. The target does feel the impact of the arrow but none of the associated pain of being shot, though none of this means they're necessarily going to be thrilled. 

Likes: Wild places, strong drinks, story telling, singing (privately)
Dislikes: Watered down drinks, Crowded city spaces, 
Personality: 
 +Analytical
 -Cynical
 + Loyal
 -Rude
 +Caring
 -Self destructive

On first impression, Seifer tends to come across as cynical and rude, and occasionally drunk, but given time to open up and relax, he's a cheerful story teller with a knack for elaborating things into a sort of colorful oral history of past encounters or mythology he happens to remember. Not that any of this stops him from referring to others in rude terms, and seeming to be completely oblivious as to how they could possibly be offended by them.  (See his nicknames for his closest friends.)

 Cynicism and a shade of depression aside, Seifer is a man who wants, deeply, to believe, or rather... he does believe that the gods exist, that there's good in all things and a place for them in nature, but struggles to have faith that mortals (especially humans)  are important enough to them to help, or that even if there is an answer to the blight, that they'd share it rather than just casually watch things burn and start over, the way one might watch the embers of a campfire go out and start over. He wants to be proven wrong, but doesn't know how or where to even start, and has a bad tendency to try and drown out his worse rounds of overthinking by looking for alcohol or other means of drowning out the roaring of his own fears and sense of helplessness. 

 In spite of being rude and prone to melancholy, Seifer is, remarkably, capable of deep loyalty and friendships, though he never stops using dismissive nicknames in person, there's a polite reverence that comes out when he sits down to tell stories, frequently crafted from an outsider perspective on the feats accomplished by those he cares about. 


Backstory: Seifer isn't as far descended from humans who comfortably live as far into the domed cities as they can manage as he would prefer, though if he had his way, people would think he was born wild and raised by feral wolves.
While this started at one point as a way to put distance between himself and the adults he couldn't quite seem to connect with, an otherwise patient, not unloving Senjeun couple interested in magecraft, order, and the glory days of the Senjeun's power and ingenuity... he found something like peace in studying nature, and a sort of comfort in the fact that while he's only a small part of the world, he still has a place in it that has nothing to do with artificial comforts and status.
 This love of nature drove him to the god of Nature, and while he has a tattoo of a bear to honor the God that most humans, including his parents, tend to look to, he made a point of getting the white stag in the hardest place to hide, right on his temple, after having a dream (which he is quick to point out was probably just a dream, even if he would like it to be more.)  of seeing the stag striding through an endless forest, glowing softly against the night sky.  

Were he less prone to being analytical and cynical, maybe he'd have been able to just walk away and be content as a ranger and not thinking too much further than his current task. Instead, over time he's only become quietly more full of doubts and worry, and the thought that believing in the gods is not enough, or else surely there'd be some sign for what triggered the blight, or what they might do to stop it after it's caused so much harm. Or what if the only answer is impossible to reach, at the heart of the place the blight started? What if it follows the Senjeun themselves? What if he himself plants seeds of it in the wild places he loves? 
Trivia: Good at singing, though he shows as little inclination to pursue any bard like skill as he would be inclined to pursue flight. Likes whittling, but is less good at this. 

Relationships: "Cow" and "Cat", not their real names, but barring story telling, the closest you'll get out of Seifer most of the time. 
Roleplay Information: docs.google.com/document/d/16k…



Other: (Does actually have a shirt, lol) -Starting EQ: Leather Armor, Two knives, Longbow and Quiver with arrows. 
 Animal Companion: Gyrfalcon, not yet named.

With the moon in his antlers
 I swear I don't have a stag hangup (though you'd think so between this and the Xerneas picture) but when someone presents me with an amazing lore and fantasy mythos with an glowing white stag... you know I've gotta draw it, and bring in my former D and D character, Seifer. 
Loading...
Oren
Finally I manage to draw something I really like again, in this case my Wolftaur Oren, who was purchased from the now defunct Okhong shop and has been waiting for his chance to play again. (and I'm pretty sure we've found the perfect setting.) He even gets an outfit change! I think it kind of suits him. 

 This started out me just trying to get back into drawing him, but Oren being Oren, decided that he wasn't going to settle for that, and here we are!

Just an FYI for a very scammy little artist out there that my friend Velynx ran into:

www.deviantart.com/velnyx/stat…

The issue was resolved but only AFTER screenshots were posted and attention drawn to the issue, and they're now insisting they made a 'mistake'. Because you know you -accidently- try and rip people off like, all the time. I just can't count the number of times I've accidently robbed people. Oh wait I can. The number of times is zero. That is exactly the number of times it should be.

Revision charges:

I want you to be happy, and I want me to be happy, I want everyone to be happy with this, and I know this sometimes means making some changes, like the pattern on a coat, or a hair style, expressions and the like. This does not mean “I changed my mind, we’re doing something entirely different.”

I will work with you to make sure you’re happy and make changes, but after two rounds of suggested revisions (please be as clear with me as possible) there will be a 20$ extra charge for further changes past the first two rounds, so please please be clear. I like money, but I think we’ll all be happier if I don’t make this money.



I maintain the right to refuse a commission for any reason, and I do not do well with machines. I’ll try, but I’d prefer to avoid them if I can.


What I need:

A description of what you want: If you have a very specific pose, tell me and I’ll do my best, but I can work from a description of the mood you want and go from there.


References: References are great. References are fantastic. I can actually work from a detailed written description but I’d prefer color swatches to hex codes.

Tell me about the personality of the characters, this will help me try and capture the nuances of their personality. I want to know who I’m drawing, it really helps.

Outfit references are also fantastic but I can do some outfit designs within reason, just give me a scope of what you’re looking for and I’ll work with you.

Backgrounds: Please give me some reference ideas, I don’t want to fall back on the same vague ideas, so if you want a background, give me something to go on.
