A vampire so old that she took up the sword’s name instead. The sword’s made of space gallium that’s contained within a special refrigerated sheath that keeps it at optimal temperature.
Shapeshifting synthetic being, only able to take the form of characters portrayed by Nicolas Cage. Powers unlocked through phrases such as “Not the bees!”, “Put…the bunny….back…in the box.”, or “I can eat a peach for hours.”
Grindelia is a spitfire lion-dragon. She’s also very flirty, and doesn’t care about what race or gender – or lack thereof – you are. What matters to her, is character depth and interest. And intelligence. Like her great-aunt, the Sphinx, Grindelia loves riddles. She also loves deep philosophical discussions and ponders the great expanse of the universe on a daily basis. Her favorite beverage is orange-banana smoothies, and her favorite food is cream-cheese-iced brownies. She is so fond of the brownies, especially, that she has been known to forgive even the most extreme of grudges with a batch or two offered up in apology. She cannot fly, and envies her dragon-kin who can. Though few have hair as luxurious as hers, so she seeks solace in that fact and is known to be at least a little vain. On that note, she is sometimes plagued by worries about her appearance.
After seeing saulone’s great monochrome pieces, I wanted to stray away from color today and work with value and contrast. I also wanted to keep away from the aliens that have plagued my imagination lately, and also stay away from a humanoid character – so I got an idea for a dragon-like creature and went with it. I let my lines flow and grow on their own. Grindelia evolved organically from a roughed-in head shape, which grew a wandering neck, which perched atop almost-crossed arms, with a large hump of a rump behind her and a snaking tail to allude to her playfulness. I have not yet mastered the use of mid-tone backgrounds (I’ve got years of working on white paper with dark graphite) but I think this was a hugely successful attempt! If you have any suggestions or tips for working both additively and subtractively on a midtone background without going too crazy on either the highlights or shadows, I’d love to hear them!
Gary could not understand why the kids suddenly started copying his wardrobe.
An “experiment” in creating a series of small killer robots. Each robot would have its own set of weapons, should the experiment be successful. This one in particular, was rushed mid-production, and as a result he may would up being rather useless. This one appears to have been recently activated.
Sitting on a bench in the locker room with his head in his hands Jim knew he should have seen this coming. Unlike school locker rooms that had the odor of sports this was a blue-collar cesspool of long hours and questionable decisions.
On the floor lost in the trash and grime was Jim’s 20-year service pin, now three years out of date. The decorative trim was bent and tarnished, the crystal covered with scratches. The Forman had asked Jim to wear it “Help show the younger workers the meaning of dedication,” what a joke that had become.
The Rat Pack was the governing body on the production floor. Management turned a blind eye as long as work was completed on time and under budget.
Jim was no fool; there was black and white in the world. After spending his time in Europe liberating shackled countries from the oppression of Germany he only wanted a quiet life to raise a family. Today however the quiet life was disrupted as The Quiet Man as he was known on the floor was now the fall guy.
Collecting the only personal item from his locker that mattered, a picture of his daughter he walked out onto the floor towards the exit, escorted by security. The hard working men and woman kept their eyes downcast, non brave enough to speak up. Jim did not blame them, he understood. They had families to care for and sometimes you had to look the other way to keep food on the table.
The Rat Pack on the other had were all smiles, chest pushed out strutting around like peacocks during mating season. “We’ll miss you Jimbo” the ringleader called out even though he was only two feet away.
Stopping momentarily Jim looked at the pompous fool, but to the ringleaders disappointment he did not look angry, or even resentful. To everyone’s surprise Jim reached out his right hand, the move of a gentlemen, something unknown in this workman’s world.
Cautiously the proud peacock extended and received a firm but not overbearing salutation. For a brief moment the hint of shame was felt as their eyes connected and The Quiet Man asked, “Did I ever tell you what my job was in Europe? No, I don’t think we ever had that conversation. That’s to bad.”
Releasing hands Jim walked to the time clock, selected his card and punched it for the last time.
He’s a high-tech hacker criminal with a colorful background as well as a colorful taste in clothing.
I’m terrible at names. But I managed to color this one! She is a high-class femme fatale that likes the finer things in life, like jewelry, flowing dresses and murder.
Andy Dandy likes to put his best foot forward… but the fact that he’s a mutant fly person seems to be standing in the way of his full potential… you could say that Andy’s kinda thick about that point… he doesn’t get what’s so obvious to everyone else… the fact that he throws up all over lunch before devouring it is just how business is done!
Amy Diamond is a student at a normal highschool of Nth New York (the namers stopped counting after 89th destruction through shenanigans) – a city full of life and lights. She is almost blind and cannot ever recover her vision, but she still keeps being cheerful and likes to be around people, despite the occasional bullying. She studies to become a captain of a starship and dreams of commanding one of her own – just like her father did.
TomBOT is a small A.I. robot who accompanies Amy wherever she goes. It was a gift from Amy’s father before his disappearance. It has a cheerful, yet a little naivë look at things and often fails to realise it is in danger. It tries it’s best to be the best helper and friend for Amy. TomBOT mostly functions as eyes for Amy, but does other tasks as well, like cooking, shopping and cleaning. It manages all chores with it’s small arms usually hidden in the circular compratments.
History is full of stories of wild men. From the Native American Skinwalker to the modern Bigfoot, there seems to be something fundamentally frightening about a person who is more animal than human. When that line becomes blurred, we can no longer be certain if we’re predator or prey.
Amila is a preteen witch and Wisp is her sarcastic talking horse familiar.

An adventurer. A seeker of relics. His most recent find: A pair of Rocket Boots.He was quite pleased, burned cloak be damned.
So for today’s viewing pleasure we have Loralie the Witch. I’m not sure why I made her aqua, but I have a feeling its from all the magic she uses tainting her skin *shrugs*. I had fun making a non-gruesome witch.
The 3rd King, or the Twilight Emperor as he prefers to be called, rules the 3rd World, Crepusculum. With the power of light in his right hand, the dark in his left, and his mighty sword, The Monolith, he actively governs his domain. With his booming voice, and large size, his presence alone is a commanding force.He leans far more towards aggressive tactics in the politics of the 9 Kings, But even he is yet to attempt to take charge of another King’s dominion.
As a little reference, his sword The Monolith, stands from the tip of its blade to the base of the hilt, at a staggering 7 feet.

The Character here is Death itself even if I just draw one of it´s faces.
