"IT IS I! THE BEST IS HERE!"
This...is SHAHARASHALA! A character for Last Legend and Concrete Jungle.
The former of which he'd be introduced and be part of a boss fight, and the latter of which where he'd be a sub-boss and playable.
His name is an onomatopoeia, it's the sounds of waves crashing, specifically against rocks. And as you could probably tell, he looks like and is inspired by the Moai Easter Island heads. Now then, as for details, he's part of an evil god trio that were essentially "False Idols" that used and enslaved people, and the trio were eventually sealed away by an Idol (not sure which I'll use to do the honors) but the only thing that can break the seal is fear.
Well, with how the world ends up being in a state of fear and chaos it accelerates the process of freeing them. The leader of the trio will be named Shratakatoom.
Since Shratakatoom uses sound/soundwaves and lightning as his power (Shratakatoom is an onomatopoeia of a lightning bolt), Shaharashala will use water and also earth/rocks (which will be a multipurpose reference, because of the Easter Island inspiration, the sound of what his name makes and is based on, and sedimentary rocks) and can also turn invisible temporarily.
So, to cover:
* Shratakatoom = Sound/shockwaves and Lightning/General electricity powers
* Shaharashala = Water (and earth/rock-based abilities) and invisibility
And for a "the more you know" moment, the upside down triangle on his outfit, belt, and forehead is actually because it's the alchemical symbol for water.
For two specific moves worth mentioning right now, he can do a boulder throw, and another where 3 Moai Heads pop up outta the ground, one after another, and then he can cause a crashing wave to drown the opponent and hit them into them and then afterwards chuck them at his opponent.
I still need to sprite out Shratakatoom, but I have a general idea already planned out, so I'll get to that soon. But he has a Tiki man theme to him.
As for the 3rd False Idol, I figure he'll be fire based. Might do like a firewood/petrified wood thing with him, and his thematic be based on either Native American totem poles or African idol statues.
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!
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.
AT ANY RATE FASTER THAN 55...
Enjoy your stay!
