CLOSED BECAUSE I DID THIS FOR 27 PEOPLE AND I CAN DO NO MORE.
Just because everyone else is doing it. I guess I'll do it too...
-> For each of the first 20 people to comment "BUTTS" to this journal, I will feature one of their characters. I'll also tell you what I like about them.
-> If you comment, please do the same in your journal, putting the tagger on in the first slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!
1) Yeltsin Slike
Ok this was a REALLY HARD ONE. It was honestly a toss up between Ximun and Hale (I mean c'mon, you cant separate the two), Yeltsin, Li Fang, and Taskill. Anyways... WHY DIS I GO WITH YELTSIN? Whats not to love about a drunk russian informant dragon? Exactly. I always loved his design, the back sail-fin is really creative and different. His personality is just so loveable you can easily forgive him for what he's done in his past. He's very different in this way in contrast to some of Cynth's other characters (all of whom are amazing). Also his drunken relationship with Raziel MAY have swayed the vote.
I have a soft spot for demons. You can't say you're surprised. I chose him mainly because of the few RP scenarios that I've done involving Serbaru. He was always such a doll, being tortured yet unfamiliar to such new settings. I'm also a fan of his New layen colour scheme more than his older colour scheme. It's just a shame I never got to see him in much action. Then again, not much action happened in Layen.
He's a tiny pink blob with giant grey eyes and he's a total butthead to all his workers. Sounds like a recipe to fun if you ask me. I've always liked the con-man, cheapskate, authority figure archetype and with Orville it just works.
I'll be honest I don't know all of your characters too much so I choose mainly of which design would catch my eye the most. And then I saw this banette. And I friggen love banette, you have no freaking clue. AND ON TOP OF THAT, he's got a Phantom mask, which is pretty rad because of the refence BUT ALSO that it works for the characters design to make him different from other banette pokemon.
First let me just say that I love the simple colour scheme of black and neon orange. Its simple and it REALLY sticks out. The choice to make her have a more beefy appearance rather than the typical sexualized vicious vixen really makes Fusiona a breath of fresh air. (Not to say the latter is a bad thing, it is just used so SO often. You might as well start a bloody pageant.) Also, to boot her powers make her an absolute beast in battle. Wish she popped up in more DU challenges.
6) The Snowman
I never thought I'd ever take a snowman seriously until I saw this guy. He actually freaks me out a bit! He's quite the dastardly villain with a colourful backstory to boot! He definitely isn't a one-shot villain or anything. He's definitely here to stay and try to thwart Wildman's heroics! I'm also a big fan of the cryokinesis, and his snowy minions. As if he wasn't evil enough~
7) Krevor Regicide
Oh my god. Krevor motherfriggen Regicide. I loved him SO MUCH in godfall you have no idea. He's such a great character! He's got such a vibrant, vulgar personality so SO FITTING of someone of his mightiness. A powerful telepath, a general shit disturber, and a tyranical...tyrant. I love everything about Krevor, I really do. For a giant mass of yellow energy he sure has left an impression! Oh god now I'm just gushing....
That is a great name. Oh my god. I cracked up a bit when I first saw him to be honest. Not because I didn't take him seriously, but just at how brilliant the name was considering the design, which by the way, is pretty rad. It's hard to make an elephant design look menacing AND on a humanoid figure no less. Kudos bro.
Oh Kakei, how I will never pronounce that correctly... I know this is an older reference for her and I'm not sure if its the one thats currently up to date but...man...I love her clothes. So sophisticated but it also gives her a real presence. That and I've always liked her species since seeing her in your gallery from the first BR OCT. (Even though that isn't who you used, I loved the Etea). AND SHE HAS WINGS.
10) Mosa Belkan
Mosa has a really special place in my heart. This is because I remember ALL of his incarnations and redesigns over the years and through all of them he's been loveble and STROONNGGG. So so manly, yet a giant scaley (sometimes mechanized) teddy bear. Not only is this guy a POWERHOUSE. He is also (or was, I'm not sure anymore) a master chef who owned his own restaurant chain and it was great fun! MOSA SMASSSHHHHH!
I loved her in AFL 5. She was so cunning an devious! I'm not usually a fan of the more...revealing outfits but this design in particular is really quite nice with the twisted armour and tail! The long flowing neon purple hair is also really neat. It helps give her the 'human looking but otherworldly' feel to her. YES THAT WAS SPECIFIC BUT I KNOW YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
12) Diamond Fire
I have to stop choosing villain characters. GEE I WONDER WHAT TYPE OF CHARACTER I LIKE. BET YOU CANT GUESS. Anyways, Both his powers and his appearance are just so...eerie to me. He looks extremely buff yet lithe an ethereal all at the same time. I think it's the face I really like. He looks like he's ready to kick your ass before you can point out he looks nude.
At least thats what I think his/her name is. It was hard to navigate your gallery... Anywho, I enjoy the creepy skeletal parts mixed in with the flesh and fur. Devious grin, evil eye, boney tail. What's not to love am i right? Same thing with Shiny, I don't know your characters very well so I chose the one that stuck out the most, and this was it.
This design is pretty neat! At first you think, oh cool, such vibrant colours on a villain? He looks so retro. But then you realize it is piloted by a fetus and then you think OH MAN WHAT THE F-. Thats what I love about the design. I wanted to be able to draw Fetor in my DU challenge a few months back but...guidelines wouldn't allow it. Oh well. Great villain!
15) Hawk Ignis
I chose him because I remember him from AFL 5. I liked the whole blood being able to be any weapon idea. It's gruesome yet convenient if a little bit unnecessary. You'd never expect so much from someone like this guy. Dark powers and fire powers too?! Oh my~~
DRAW HIM MORE. DRAW HIM BEING HIS GRUESOME, MEAN, ALMOST HEARTLESS SELF. Sorry I had to make that clear because I DO miss it. I was always a fan of the design and his immense power. Not to mention he's kind of a good guy. Kind of. At least from what I remember. That mask is still as intimidating as ever.
There is so much mystery to this man, I swear to god. I had to write for him in my Nuketown entries of old and I still don't know too much about that guy. I guess that is what appeals to me the most. What is behind the mask? WHAT IS BEHIND THE MASK? WHAT IS BEHIND THE MASK?!
Ever since I first laid eyes on your gallery a few years ago I have always and will never stop loving ABLE. Jesus christ. She's so immensely powerful and can do all these crazy things to utter destroy your everything and she's do it before you can even ask her name. I love the colour scheme, overall design, and I even love her personality. I swear I can go rambling about how much I love ABLE.
19) Andrew Humpfrey
I MISS HIM VERY MUCH. This cat bat alligator hybrid is both charming, polite, and totally and indiscriminately BRUTAL. A face you just wanna hug and yet run away from as fast as you friggen can. A deadly combo to say the least. I love he managed to find a suit that could fit his size and body type. Don't ask him what flavour the tea is, you may not like it.
20) Lord Order
I gotta choose him man, he's the first character of yours I've ever encountered and RP'd with for a little bit. And in that little span of time he was ABLE TO DESTROY THE HOMEWORLD OF FEW OF MY CHARACTERS. Yeah, not only is Lord Order powerful in his own right but he has got an entire armada at his back supporting him every step of the way. Good gravy. I enjoy characters that have such a presence when they are around.
I know her the most so thats why she's gotta be my fave. In Layen she'd always poke a bit of fun at Gadreel, which was always fun, and not everyone has the courage to do that to the guy. She's got a nice simple design but there is so much more to her, like the fact she's a healer who rides a broomstick! Exactly!
I like him because the few times I saw him in the deviant universe he shares a similar personality to a cocky, teenage Spiderman, but at the same time having totally wicked powers of metal manipulation. I'm not a fan of the typical superheroesque spandex suits but with Mercury it just WORKS on the guy. He looks like he's made of metal in that suit. Maybe he is? Not sure.
I was THIS close to choosing Adam. really. But... I throughly enjoyed a half asleep Wayblue just murdering her opponents in BR2 like it was only a nuisance. Yeah, don't mess with her! Such a simple design with the outstanding feature of the really long blue hair is a really great touch! I miss her though...
AHHHHH HE's SO CUTE AND HE HAS A SKULLFACE. I am a real sucker for designs with skull or skull like faces. I also really dig the hood as well as the colour choices. Oh my god he;s so adorable though! <3
Diago's got a bit of a special place in my heart. When I would lurk AFL (Starting with AFL 3) There were only a few fighters fights I would really follow til the end. And one of those was Diago's fights. He's great! He can kick ass, make a good joke, and get drunk all the same. Sometimes even scoring a one night stand.
I am unconditionally in love his design. You have absolutely no idea. The knight armour is fabulous and his cyclops head is quite adorable! He may have similar powers to one of my own characters but Alpha has it to his own dynamic which I think is really neat!
....you vultures, the lot of ya.
