Nycteris : The 30 Characters Challenge

Author Archive: Nycteris

Born at an early age, Rachel soon discovered pencils and began doodling fantastical things in her spare time. And sometimes her non-spare time.

I DID IT!

#23, 24, 25, 26 Fairy Panda & Steampunk Man

| November 29, 2012 | 0 Comments

A Peppermint Panda, a Steampunk guy, a confused Naga, and various other stuff.

I am forever playing catch-up. Gah.

 

#22 – Cubby.

| November 26, 2012 | 0 Comments

It’s a lion cub named cubby.

Apparently his parents had no imagination, and/or were secretly wishing for a bear.

#21 – Nathaniel Wolverton

| November 26, 2012 | 0 Comments

Even though I’m not sure if those wingy-bits are part of his shirt, he is probably a fae creature of some sort, since his proportions are so weird.  But no one else would form a band, so he has formed his own – parading and trumpeting day and night.
No one has the heart to tell him how bad he is.

#20 – Zola

| November 26, 2012 | 0 Comments

I wanted an idea, and my friend invented Zola – she’s with a band.
I think it’s playing chiptunes.

#17, 18, 19 – still not caught up!? argh.

#14, 15, 16

| November 22, 2012 | 0 Comments

 

Buttons the Monkey says “Ook” with authority.
Cosmo is the man, and Barney is the dog – but sometimes they swap names to screw people up!

#5 (recolored) Avanelle Avens now with color

| November 21, 2012 | 0 Comments

Number five on the 19th? I have troubles.

Flailing…

| November 16, 2012 | 0 Comments

I only have 6 characters uploaded so far!
Maybe this weekend… waters closing over head… all going dark…

#6 – Contemplative Crowned Sphinx

| November 7, 2012 | 0 Comments

Reclining Sphinx

#5 – Avanelle Avens

| November 6, 2012 | 0 Comments

Avanelle Avens looks sour, because not enough people have been complimenting her new outfit.

And she won’t forget the poor souls who weren’t impressed…

Avanelle Avens and her Parasol

 

#4 – Magellian Caldwell

| November 4, 2012 | 0 Comments

Magellian Caldwell is bored.

A Child on a Stump

#3 – Arnold Palmer

| November 4, 2012 | 0 Comments

It's a sort of anthro crow.

Arnold Palmer picked his name when he saw it on the side of a can.

He’s a very curious … whatever he is.

#2 – The Melancholy Inkwarden

| November 3, 2012 | 0 Comments

Some days it’s just a tiring job. (Though I’m not sure what he does, exactly…)

#1 – The Balloongardener

Returning Challenger 2012: Rachel Ross

| October 19, 2012 | 1 Comment

Steampunk GoodnessHi, my name is Rachel.

I played along last year, and managed to get 30 characters done – but a lot of them were “pretty terrible”.

So this year, I want to churn out 30 characters that are “less terrible”.

I’ve been practicing, but not as much as I should!

Here’s my website, where I will cross-post these characters: Glimmerville

 

#23 thru #30 – Procrastination Collection

| December 1, 2011 | 0 Comments

These are “Ran-out-of-time-colored”.

Well, at least I have 30, even if they aren’t awesome ones.

#21 & 22 – Mortimer and Milton

| November 24, 2011 | 0 Comments

Mortimer is the beast, Milton is the boy.
Giddyap!

#20 – The Antlered Macaw

| November 24, 2011 | 0 Comments

Ah, the extremely rare antlered macaw…
First described by Sir Archibalderdash Higgs in 1836.
Often frequents Japanese bath-houses, which are hard to find in the Amazon. Its cry sounds like a microwave’s buzz, and it smells vaguely of sweat and figs. It lays two eggs per clutch, one of which is always blue. The blue one is inevitably devoured by predators, owing to its conspicuous color, so no one knows if the blue egg is fertile. No antlered macaws have ever been successfully raised in captivity.
Squaaawk!

#19 – Mei-Mei the Red Pandadragon.

| November 23, 2011 | 0 Comments

This did not turn out as cute as I wanted it to.
Mmmm bamboo

#18 – This Won’t Hurt

| November 22, 2011 | 0 Comments

A mad-scientist/medic/interrogator gnome, on a gnomish airship (erm, airship not shown).
What could possibly go wrong?
I really mean to color these things…

OH GNOME YOU DIDN'T (also a fun board game)

#15 #16 #17 (Catchup)

| November 19, 2011 | 0 Comments

I was severely lacking in my “drawing guys” skills.
This doesn’t make up for it, but it was good exercise.

Also now I’m only TWO days behind. Go me.

#13 (and maybe #14) – Robinson and Tilly

| November 14, 2011 | 0 Comments

I am going to be busy tomorrow so this MIGHT count for two. Not sure…

I went back in and colored it.

#12 – Barden Torque

| November 13, 2011 | 0 Comments

A little bit cliché but I don’t mind.
I’m just happy I’m not falling behind on these things!

Though I should have taken a few more seconds on those shoes… gah.
He's under a spreading chestnut tree.

#11 – Tovi

| November 12, 2011 | 0 Comments

He sure looks happy! :)

#10 – Stellaria

| November 12, 2011 | 0 Comments

I should have colored all the little stars but I just didn’t have the patience. I’ve got to draw three characters tonight to catch up!
Stellaria is also the genus of the weedy plant "Chickweed"
