Grena the Dentie
This is Grena, she's a tooth fairy (aka a "Dentie").
As you can see, the idea and what sparked that concept was to create a savage woman tooth fairy, which wound up not just resulting in the creation of her, but the race of tooth fairies aka Denties in the Last Legend and the connected canon's lore.
She's intended to be playable on Concrete Jungle.

Grena can manipulate her size, fly around, teleport, and is just admittedly violent with her affinity for teeth collecting. XD
She wields an oversized molar tied on the end of a big stick like a hammer (more on that further below). 
Grena can emit a fragrance which paralyzes or makes her enemies numb, working like anesthesia and novocain so she can make you at least feel less pain...which she beats the everlovin' shit outta ya to add some more teeth to her collection.
She's nice like that, ya know.

She can also repair various things, kinda like how dentists do with filler.

Her weapon's a tad bit magical.
How so?
Well, it's essentially like a magical Swiss Army dentist tool hammer thing.
It doubles as multiple dentist tools.
The end of it (bottom part) in particular changes into different things.
The scraper, drill, the water cleaning thing, the vacuum, filler, and scissors, but the microscope pops up as an attachment behind the giant molar hammer part.

And obviously all those different things would be tied into her method of attack.
The water cleaning thing would send out a long range water jet stream attack, filler can fix things that she then can utilize to then attack with, and the vacuum sucks her opponent's closer into her.

To harken back to the teleport I mentioned, she'd have a teleport of sorts, where she turns super small, like a lightning bug and flies passed/behind her opponent super fast leaving a light trail and then reverts back to "standard size", since that just makes too much sense to not have her be able to do.

Before you ask or wonder, hell yes, her hair was totally inspired by and simulates the look of toothpaste.
I just thought that'd be unique and fun to do with her design.
And in case you were wondering, her name is pronounced "Grinna". :D

Hyrule Warriors of Wisdom, Courage, and Power
To preface this, I loved the hell outta Hyrule Warriors. Me and my brother grew up playing Zelda games since we were really little (I literally grew up on it since I can even legitimately remember, because he's 4 1/2 years older than me) and Hyrule Warriors in particular was of course the most recent, albeit a spinoff, and we've put over 500 hours into it.
Being a completionist is fun sometimes, I tell ya hwhat. Only thing even left to do is finish up Cucco's Fury (kinda intentionally dragging that out since that's the last thing to do, and max everyone out if we want to).

Now then, I've been workin' on this for the passed like 2 or so days now (honestly lost track LOL) and FINALLY FINISHED IT.
I kinda neglected and put off sleep to get it done today in particular because once I really get started and goin' on somethin' and am on a roll and not "stuck" at some part, it usually starts to come along fairly quick or at a decent pace at least.
But anyways, my sleep deprivation and insomnia aside...
There's a bit of a backstory for how this came to be.

My friend :iconvicious-kurai: drew this on the miiverse:…
And I thought it'd be cool to take that and basically just go ahead and color it in.
Well, for whatever reason in my head, I thought it was going to be a fairly quick color job, but oh hell no, I'm too meticulous for that to happen and be the case, so it turned into a full blown recreation and project I put it upon myself to do. XD 

So YEEEEEAH! (read that line in Link's voice for extra entertainment) I'm happy with how it turned out.
Or I just need sleep and it looks better than it should and I'm gonna wanna fix something on it later, but hopefully not. LOL

Oh, and while workin' on this, for some fun facts: Hell yes I did listen to the Hyrule Warriors soundtrack and other Zelda soundtracks and metal covers of Zelda music that I fuckin' love to inspire me and have me fueled to get in that whole mindset and mood while working on this throughout. :D

Zelda, Link, and Ganondorf are owned by Nintendo.
Their Hyrule Warriors designs are likely joint owned by Koei Tecmo as well, I'm sure, so credits to Koei Tecmo as well.
Mash-Up Theatre presents Poison Peach
Ok so, there's obviously a story behind this.
So here'a we go!!!
When I was playing through Super Mario 3D World I noticed something hilarious that I never did before, and don't think anyone else ever caught onto before...
Peach and Poison have almost like the SAME damn hairstyle minus that middle section of the bangs (WHICH POISON ACTUALLY HAS THOUGH ON SNK vs CAPCOM: CHAOS).

Ergo, I went ahead and did this and made Peach dressed like Poison. XD

I edited these sprites from Super Princess Peach, because it originally started off as just a quick idea, but then it became full blown, so I said fuck it and here's the product of that.

This is also the first installment of something I call "Mash-Up Theatre".
Which means there shall be more funny things like this later on down the line!
Might even do Mario as Haggar now. XD

Poison and the Street Fighter series are owned by CAPCOM.
Princess Peach and the Super Mario and Super Princess Peach series are owned by Nintendo.
Tea'El's a character from Last Legend.
She's a mischievous little rogue. A thief, possibly a pirate, maybe an entrepreneur?
Check the list for all above!
She's funny and quirky, albeit mostly unintentional.

She joins up with you at first to help you break into Cyperion...under one condition:
You locate the "Idol", Tiamat.
Something that her intel on such is still questionable. But you have no other choice but to accept her terms and conditions for entry.

Her main abilities are to Steal (she can steal items, but also has the option to steal defense, buffs, HP, MP, EXP, and IP aka Idol Points from an enemy) and Cloak, where she turns invisible.
Though, she also has a third ability, used for non-battle purposes, which utilizes Cloak and "Scrounger Sense".
Scrounger Sense allows her to see invisible items, doors, stairs, ect. and is completely passive. Sometimes she has to use Cloak to do so in-game, depending on the scenario.

Though the inquiry remains lingering about Tea'El's mysterious nature, knowledge, and appearance...

Oh, you know you want a plasma scarf and that stylish cat themed hat and goggles combo like she has too.

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

Hey! :wave: I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for adding my Stained Glass Midna piece to your favorites. :D I'm glad to see you liked it and I appreciate the fav. :heart: Thanks again!
Annyngton Featured By Owner May 18, 2015  Student General Artist
Thank you so much for the fav mate, means a world to me! :meow: Beautiful stuff you have here!!
TheSixthSaint Featured By Owner May 18, 2015   General Artist
You're truly welcome! :D
That Link picture was AMAZING! Seriously.
I loved how you tied in his different items into the picture adorned on him like that. That was unique because I sure as hell don't see that much.
Hell, the only picture I can even recall off-hand that ever did that was an old artwork from the original Legend of Zelda:…
If that inspired you to do what you did, then that makes it even cooler and wittier that you went and did that and referenced that in a roundabout way.

I'm honored that you think my work is beautiful and I love yours as well.
That whole macabre-esque feel to some of yours is really cool and you did well with that.
Overall, you have a really interesting style and your most recent work is seriously commendable lately, especially.
I wound up addin' ya and became a watcher as you probably saw, I totally had to. :3
I hope you're doing fine all's well with you and everything, by the way!
Annyngton Featured By Owner May 19, 2015  Student General Artist
Whaat oh my, I don't know what is more beautiful, your art or your words! ;_;
Haha, the inspiration came originally when I wondered with my friend where on earth Link actually puts his stuff he carries! One day I will make another version with literally every item, just for the fun, but this was a bit more serious take to the idea. xD I did some research while idealizing and that indeed was the one piece that helped me the most. Although every bit of original The Legend of Zelda artwork is holy to me, I don't really understand how all that stuff stays in his back. :D 

I thank you from the bottom of my heart, you can't imagine how happy it makes me to hear that! I think that I'm living the most active years of developing my own art style and overall artistic growth, so such compliments will always inspire me to keep aiming even higher and higher. Also thank you for wanting to see my work in the future, I shall work even harder to not disappoint you. :D
I'm more than happy to watch you back, I certainly enjoy seeing some marvelous pixel work and sprites and everything with such gorgeous creativity, video games can be so amazingly inspiring.
I hope all the best for you too dear, may the sun shine upon your path and summer bring all it's joyful breeze! :heart:

It's true, though! I'm flattered and grateful by your compliment there as well, but seriously.
Your work and style is so damn good. That Link picture is fantastic.
Oh shit, that's gonna be hilarious once you do that version with ALL of his items ever. XD
The serious take turned out damn fine and exceeded any and all expectations I would've had if I knew about it beforehand.
It was? I KNEW IT! Well, kinda. XD
I love all the original Zelda artwork and Zelda art in general, and the art style design of "Classic Link".
I kinda miss his iconic pompadour coif hairstyle that seems to be specifically be only the handheld games nowadays.
Logically, I imagine that Link just has some kind of magical bag they never state that he has, that he just puts all the shit into...but then that's negated by other things he has that he has to acquire for bigger bombs and arrows and such, so I guess there goes my theory. LOL
Oh hey, I found something a few months ago that you'd probably appreciate. I'm not sure if you know about this, but here's a collection of Zelda artwork through all the year's games (and even the manga).…

You're welcome. :)
I understand completely. And if I can at all and in any way help, or introduce you to an artist or artists that you might've never heard before that may just inspire you and your style, things to take from to incorporate into your own and whatnot, I can always offer some inspiration in that aspect for sure.
I'm sure I know at least an artist or two that may just be beneficial to your continued evolution as an artist that you'd really dig, probably.
But either way, at the present moment, you're doin' an damn good and amazing job really with your current art style and how that's comin' along and will continue to be, I say.
Oh, I know you won't disappoint. You're too determined and talented for that to happen.
All it comes down to is persistence, drive, determination, and passion, and you have all of those in spades.
So however good you want to be someday, and whatever goals you have artistically, I'm more than certain you'll wind up accomplishing them in time. Just keep to it and you will. Believe me. :D 
And if you ever want to work on something together someday, a collaboration or something like that. Even designing a character together, you know whatever, really, I'm open to it if you are.
I think that'd be really cool and fun to do if you wanted to do something like that.

Thanks for the watch, bai za whey! :D
That made me smile to read that. Seriously.
I love being able to make other people happy and if I can do that with my art, that's the best damn feeling.
If I can inspire people and captivate them with something I create, that means the world to me. Not even kiddin'. That's like the best feeling in the world to me to have other people enjoy something I do and be like "I've never seen something like that before!" and present something new and different to people, such things like that. Throughout my everyday life, I'm always observing life and seeing certain things and an idea will just pop into my head and it's like "I GOTTA DO SOMETHIN' WITH THAT NOW!"
That's the best way I can even explain it. Ideas just come from outta nowhere sometimes, or just by happenstance by something someone else would probably never even think of, but the best way I can put it is, hey, the shit made sense to me at the time. So I ran with it. XD
I'm sure you probably know and could deduce, but my main, big goal in life is to make video games.
The only thing I'm really lacking in making that a reality is I can't program for shit, so I need to meet a programmer or programmers. Just having one REALLY good programmer would suffice to help everything get further off the ground. But, I know I'll meet one eventually.
It's actually kinda dumb how hard it is for me to meet a programmer yet. Like, I don't understand how it's so hard. LOL
I have met some, it's not like I never have. But not one who's not already busy doing something else, or thinks "that's too ambitious of a project" and I'm all like *shakes fistu*. XD
But yessah! I'll figure it out.
I MUST! Dignity laugh 

Same to ya! And yes I totally do need the sun shine upon my path and summer bring all its joyful breeze, 'cause we've had some seriously shitty weather here in Texas for like the passed month or so now.
Got woken up today to the sounds and feeling of a groundshaking storm accompanied with pissdown rainpour. Denton, which ain't too far from here got a flood AND a tornado back-to-back about 2 weeks ago. The weather here for the passed month has just been storms and rain daily. It's honestly been "unusual" to finally have 24 hours of it not happening on the few days where it hasn't.
I know the whole "April showers bring May flowers" line exists, but dude, it's fuckin' May. So I guess Mother Nature didn't buy a calendar for 2015, I guess. XD
