''Pumpkin Witch'' Varoona
This is The Pumpkin Witch, Varoona! She's a goblin, and a character that would originally be introduced on Last Legend, and playable on Concrete Jungle.
Varoona was an orphan girl that would talk to Xera through the window, after one day hearing her pretend to be a witch.
Xera would never actually go outside or let her in.
Varoona would speak of wanting to become a famous witch, playing with pumpkins and old books, acting like she would turn them into things and other such tomfoolery.
"I'll be the greatest witch of all time! No one can beat the pumpkin witch, Varoona!"
Xera laughed at the girl, but she respected her determination.
Varoona told her of how she's an orphan and that her parents were killed, and her not getting on with goblins or humans, or anyone, really, and doesn't have any friends because they all make fun or her for not looking like goblins usually do. Especially due to her tall, more "human-esque" build had her labeled a freak, but she hopes to learn magic someday so she can protect not just herself, but others someday.
The passion in how she conveyed her words was obvious, and would be an inspiration to others to see her fiery determination burning bright.
Though Xera was still unwavered, despite seeing the girl's spirit. She found her amusing, if nothing else.
Xera did see a bit of herself in Varoona, however, so she took a shine to her company.
Alas, everyday that girl came to her, and fought imaginary monsters outside her window...until a real one came back for Xera.

Mothiposa came back to the Ophidian village of Umbri to claim more lives.
Varoona was swept up and taken by the beast.
Xera saw this, and she was afflicted. She wanted so desperately to help, but how could she?
Xera realized that Varoona shared that same sentiment.
She had to act fast if she wanted to save her life.
She opened her door, ran outside and something inside her clicked when she saw Varoona screaming for help.
It was similar to her situation when Mothiposa last attacked, when Nilgam saved her at the expense of his own life.
Xera fought the beast head on, and meshed magic attacks against it.
She got Varoona free of its grasp.
But the Idol, Mothiposa...managed to kill her, and Varoona lie extremely wounded.

Xera laid there, dead and motionless...yet with magical aura surrounding her body, she then arose from the ground and resurrected back to life, creating a healing field that cured her and Varoona back to perfect condition.

Mothiposa astounded, Xera then created a magical attack infusing all the magic types she's mastered at once to annihilate the beast.
She avenged her master, friend, and father figure, Nilgam.
No more did Xera feel useless.
Upon killing Mothiposa, in its dying moments, it reveals to Xera who she is...
It was actually her only friend that she grew up with as a child, before she was kicked out of Cyperion for not being able to utilize her magic cauldron blood and conjure up spells.
It was called Larvilla, and it felt betrayed by her, but furthermore, it grew jealous of her for being able to leave Cyperion (truth is that Larvilla didn't know she was forcibly kicked out). So it envied and detested her, for leaving her behind.
After the revelation that her childhood friend wound up being her worst enemy, she reveals the truth to Larvilla, now called Mothiposa in its current form.

Mothiposa feels dreadful regret, living a lie and letting Cyperion manipulate her to do terrible things for them, and they only even sent her out to find and check up on her, and see if she ever learned or mastered her abilities, and to hypnotize her to bring her back to Cyperion if so, but Mothiposa wasn't interested in bringing her back.
She just wanted to make her life miserable and spite her, then ultimately kill her.
But Mothiposa felt that not only did she live a life of regret, but one of heinous actions that can only be redeemed in another metamorphosis...a life after death that allowed her to be reunited with and part of her only friend she ever bind her soul to fuse with and reside in Xera.
It's after the fusion of Mothiposa binding and fusing her soul with Xera's that she become part of Xera's armor.
Which thus outwardly expresses her own new metamorphosis, both outwardly outfit-wise, but more importantly, personally.
Ability-wise, due to the fusion, she gains the power of telepathy and telekinesis.

It was because of this that she accepts Varoona as a student, and opened up a magic school for orphans that she'd run out of her house, teaching only one student at a time, though.
Still, Xera remained a hermit, caring not for the outside world other than helping those kids be able to defend themselves, the same way she always wished that she could.
The orphans come to class telling her of their lives and what's going on in the outside world and the government, so on so forth. Those children brighten her day when the darkness still resides within her for revenge.
Word of Xera's magic school is heard by your crew on Last Legend.
They seek her out to help them harness magic (and Nazarus to further understand magic meshing), plus learn about the power of the Idols further, since she not only defeated, but fused with one.
Furthermore, you also can give her the means to go back to Cyperion, so the offer is too tempting for her to pass up on assisting you...

Varoona on the other hand, had been spending her time and life going on her own journey.
Varoona was essentially a child Xera would wind up raising, and encouraged Varoona to go out and live a life of her own and spread her teachings to others.
And even more importantly, find friends. True friends, finally.
Varoona winds up befriending Pumky (the flying monkey) and Bookat (the black cat grimoire), and her own hat, even.
The bittersweet part of it all is that she actually wound up giving life to the latter two via magic...
Varoona heads to the Concrete Jungle after be given a mysterious letter about her parent's death, in it it asks if she wanted to finally find out who killed them and why.
If so, she should come to the Concrete Jungle.
Varoona with Pumky and Bookat in tow, head to the Concrete Jungle...

Moveset-wise, Varoona fights with all sorts of fun magic and assisted attacks with her pals.
Varoona does elemental spells that look like or have Jack-O-Lantern effects to them, and can turn things (like people) into other things and put spells on her opponents, token witch style.
Which can be over-the-top, like turning the opponent into a frog and then teeing off with her broom hitting them with the bristle end of the broom like a golf ball.
Bookat being a grimoire and all, will do spells by opening himself up, hissing, and screeching spells at opponents.
Pumky goons around, does sweeping attacks (think Firebrand), headbutts, slashes, double-team attacks with Bookat, and eats a health diet of candy to power himself up for more effective helping.

Oh, and one last thing...HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! :D
''The Floodhound'' Diamond Eyes Darrell
This is Diamond Eyes Darrell, a character for Pale Blue Dawn.
Does this one have any relation to its upload date?
Ya damn right it does!
Today's the legendary guitarist from Pantera (and others bands but that obviously gets the seniority), Dimebag Darrell's birthday!
I've had this character planned for years now, and started the sprite quite a few ago too, but never got around to finishing it.
But, I figured today was a nice deadline to give myself to have it finished by.

Now then, his name, Diamond Eyes Darrell, has its meaning and purpose.
Dime was originally known as "Diamond Darrell" if you didn't know.
But, the reasoning storyline and character design-wise is mainly because his irises shimmer like diamonds.
Think of it like as if you could wear contacts made of diamonds, but instead they're real.
That's his trademark in-game. Once you see his eyes, you know who the hell it is, and it's time to walk home, boy.
Why's that, you ask?
Diamond Eyes Darrell is a Lycanthrope/Synergy Vampire (He can absorb Energy and Souls) by staring into your eyes. And turn into a wolfman by getting wet (hence the "Floodhound" moniker).

And by "wet" it'll be as in "any moisture" hitting him it could be a comedic thing like just 1 drop of sweat from someone else turns him. Or washing his hands, getting sneezed on, just BAM! Floodhound transformation. lmao
And he would carry a water bottle around and does the Triple H thing and spews it in the air and when it falls down he's transformed.
Then he'll bury the shit out of you.
Hence why he carries the coffin around, right? XD

For some additional abilities...He can telepathically move objects as well, due to telekinesis and can particularly utilize magnetic manipulation mentally as part of that ability.
Which, enables him magnetic flight, which is essentially the ability to fly due only to magnetism.

Now, if you're curious about the ornate coffin case, there's obviously a fun story about that incoming!
He carries a coffin case (usually strapped to his back, but he has it planted in the ground behind him in this depiction) that has the trademark lightning bolts on it like the Dimebolt guitar.
But then I threw in a diamond that the bolts are coming out of and surrounding, just to make it stand out more and further.
About the coffin's actually just a giant fuckin' gun that works like a Proton Cannon, grenade launcher, shoots lasers, bullets, and missiles.
Oh, and it can also turn into an actual guitar.
Get'cha pull on that futuristic technology!

Also, I made his hair fade to neon red instead of his beard to make him far more of a tribute rather than being TOO "exact", as you can see...ya know, if the clothing and Fist of the North Star body build I gave him didn't tip ya off. XD
Oh, and if ya can't see, I even gave him the token razor blade necklace.

To see the other members of Statera, click these here:
Elvatch is a character for Pale Blue Dawn. She's a Yeti/Sasquatch/Bigfoot. She's also a musician, thought to have died.
Sightings of her are rare, essentially thought to have been some kinda hoax...and some are as people put on elaborate hoaxes faking footage.
Given there's thoughts of conspiracies afoot as to whether she's dead or not, this becomes a challenge to try and track her down...the REAL Elvatcha.
And yes, there will also be impersonators.

If you haven't already pieced it together, she's s cross between Bigfoot and Elvis. XD
She'll even have some Elvis poses and mannerisms that she'll do (if the sprite didn't tip you off on that already).

You all shook up yet?
Tomcleo and Purrot
This is Tomcleo and Purrot (Tomcleo's the lion and Purrot's the girl). Purrot's name is pronounced "Purr-O".
They're characters intended for Concrete Jungle.
Between this duo here, Purrot uses a megaphone, and instead of an actual whip, she uses handkerchiefs tied together and uses it as a whip, makes balloon animals that have sentience that can attack for her, among other clowny things, and Tomcleo helps her fight as she is a lion tamer, after all.

I was thinking of changing Purrot's arm that's next to Tomcleo to her holding a bunch of handkerchiefs tied together like a whip as mentioned, hangin' down on the ground, but was too excited to upload this in the meantime before I do that.
I'll update this later with that.

And before you mention that they're terrifying, well, that was a point. XD
There's a reason why I made sure to pick October for the month of finally focusing on designin' them.
And in case you were wondering, yes, they are the start in a "Month of Halloween themed designs" to fit this month that I intend to do! :D
Super Starlight Sentainel Red, Vermilia Rouxby! by TheSixthSaint
Super Starlight Sentainel Red, Vermilia Rouxby!
Vermilia Rouxby is a member of the Super Starlight Sentainels, a division of The Super STAR CORPS.
Just what are The Super STAR CORPS?
They are the...


If there's a problem, they'll solve it on foot or by mecha.
They're comprised of androids, too, 'cause that's kind of important.

The other members of The Super Starlight Sentainels are Azurao (the leader), Fuchsia, Blackwing, and Viridio.

When they combine their Starmor suits, it becomes a Super Starmor named Mondo Supernova Sentainel Rekaizer X!

Personality-wise, Rouxby has a funloving and take-nothing-seriously attitude, almost to a fault.

Rouxby's mech, or rather, Starmor Suit Red is called "Starlet".

To repeat what I said on Azurao's description, here's where things get interesting. They're 5 characters in one (Azurao, Blackwing, Fuchsia, Viridio, and Vermilia Rouxby).
They have moves where you can do assist based moves (which can utilize anywhere from 1, 2, 3, or all 5 working together at once) and can switch out who's in (think of it like playing Marvel vs Capcom 2 or 3 for instance, but instead a 5 person team). And obviously all 5 of theirs mechas would be tied into their moveset.

The idea is to put them on Concrete Jungle, Hybrids of Steel, and make their first canonical appearance be on Last Legend.
Rouxby's moves as part of the moveset would be inspired by and kind of a mix between Doctrine Dark and Jun the Swan, Volnutt's weapon swapping and Saki from Tatsunoko vs Capcom.
Which, yes, she'd even bring out a BFG similar to how Saki has. A fun thing she'd use are Yo-Yo grenades. The string of which can electrocute enemies, too.
Her weapons would work like how Iron Man's Proton Cannon comes into being all digitized looking. So, I guess from the scientific aspect, it's like hammer space based tech for her.

And as a side note, I have it in mind that her voice would be kinda like how Rogue's is in X-Men cartoons and such.

Now then, if you wanna see Azurao and Fuchsia, I've uploaded art of them so far too, so check those out right here!……

And so ye know, this was a collaboration with
She drew it traditional originally, and then I kinda went crazy in SAI and edited a lot of it (completely redid the face, tweaked the outfit, colors, ect.)


No journal entries yet.


TheSixthSaint's Profile Picture
Artist | Varied
United States
By now, at least ya should, know my name is Masamune.
Though I go by the following names too:
The Sixth Saint, Sixth, SS Masamune, SSM, and Mr. Thou.

Simply put, what'cha see is what'cha get and what'cha don't is better yet.
Art in general is my life and without it, I'd probably be dead or one even more eccentric son of a bitch.
The brunt of my uploads are characters for different stories and various series I'm writing and workin' on, but I do dabble in some fun fan art like the "Mini Sprites" you'll see in my gallery from time to time.

So yessah, I'm a writer and a character designer (if you haven't guessed that already) and my goal is to make said stories and the characters shown off on here into actual games someday, but I will obviously require a team to do so, especially considering how I want them adapted and accomplished.
But I know I can make it happen! :D

Now, to get back to the more "about me" profiley descripshits!
I love and appreciate the things that I hold closest to me.
To borrow a phrase that I live by
"The things I believe in most are my family, my friends and music. They haven't let me down yet." - Dave Williams

I believe in loyalty. To your family, to your friends, and to the things you love in the lives we're livin'.

I tend to create new words and coin phrases way more often than not.
I jokingly have my own language referred to as Masamunese. You should learn it. Enrollment is now open!

For a "fun facts": I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs.
Never have, never will.
The altered state of mind ain't my way of life.
I mean come on, man, you don't need drugs when you can already hallucinate sober, with or without lack of sleep. XD
I've had enough health problems over the years as is, so I choose to take care of my health.
I don't discriminate or honestly care if you do any of that, whatever makes you happy I say.
So long as it isn't negatively effecting yours or anyone else's lives, ya know.

Now then, one thing you will quickly find out about me if you're someone I consider a friend (which, if I add ya on here, I do consider you a friend to some extent or degree) and that is, I like to bring out the best in and inspire people.
Maybe you're next.
Only one way to find out!
Not only that, but I enjoy helping people in general.
Through empathy I love doing so.

Personally, I'd like everyone to be happy and live up to their full potential and realize their dreams.
And with the synergy of a nudge in the direction coupled with drive, passion, and inspiration, you CAN.
Don't ever think you can't because whatever bullshit reason someone throws your way.
Seriously. Never let "can't" poison your passion and creativity.

I grew up around a bunch of inspiring things all around me.
I'm very visionary and imaginative I think, because of this.
I always push myself to push the envelope.
From character designs, video games, stories, to the music that I listen to, to art of all kinds, I was surrounded and interested in so many intriguing things.
Thus causing me to give myself that extra creative kick in the ass when needed to produce the same to have that simply timeless and long withstanding effect.
It's pretty damn sad to see that people are "tapped out" of new ideas for art and the outlets of creativity nowadays.
To those I say, always remember where you came from, who you are as a person and as an artist, and what drove you to do what you do.
No one reveres the plagiarist, for it's the innovator that's truly remembered in time.
If you follow your heart, your mind will follow not too far behind.

Enjoy your stay! :D
