Vultyr (The Vulture Valkyrie)
This is Vultyr, The Vulture Valkyrie for a series of mine I'm workin' on called Thor's Blood.
Which is Norse mythology themed, but focused moreover on valkyries, and all the valkyries have different flying animals and mythological monsters, creatures, and beings as their motifs.
Which, as you can see, Vultyr's is a Vulture. Turkey Vulture if being super specific.

She's very expressive as you can see. Annnd absolutely fuckin' nuts. XD
But that's what makes her so entertaining!
She wields a double-ended Kusarigama (like Axl Low from Guilty Gear) but hers are made entirely of bone.

When in battle, she's never one much for getting miffed or offended by being left scraps...if anything, that's her favorite part, to be able to finish off or pick apart whatever and whoever's left.

Now, as for the gameplay style idea I have in mind for Thor's Blood, my idea is a mix between Sengoku Basara, the Warriors/Musou games, Bayonetta, Kid Icarus: Uprising, and Panzer Dragoon. But it will have parts where stages seamlessly shift to a 2D plane beat-'em-up style with some specific things that alter the gameplay like finding hidden things and such aside from just combat (think Castle Crashers in that aspect).
This is Kaliva, a character for Last Legend.
She's a clairvoyant, and will join the party because she sees into the future with her crystal ball (if you haven't guessed, she wears it on her hat) and prophesizes "the end of the world".
So she joins in hopes that she can prevent it.
But if she cannot, she still wants to take pictures of the world as it was.

She can be equipped with any weapon in the game, as well as using a camera to fight with and cards (she's holding a tarot card for death pictured above), which are specific to her.
She can be equipped in all 6 of her hands, including two handed weapons if you wanna go that route.
Which, you could even do 3 one handed weapons.
And she has elastic limbs and such like Dhalsim and Mr. Fantastic.

Oh, and if you have her in your active party, she can go around and can take pictures, which will obviously have sidequest potential.
Think of it as channeling how the picture taking was in Pokemon Snap and Wind Waker. XD
She'll have sidequests you can do by utilizing her camera to take pictures of things, monsters, monuments, ect. for rewards.

And, if you didn't realize, her camera (which is a living creature named Katmra) can be used as a weapon similar to Saiga on Speed Grapher.
It makes things go flash boom!
If you have a camera equipped to fight with, it either just hits enemies normally OR has a chance to blind the enemy, to autokill them, or steal their soul.
If it steals their soul, it makes the enemy or enemies not attack anymore, they just stay there for the rest of the battle without motivation.

Kaliva's battle abilities are:
*Snapshot: Learns skills of other party members (think Gogo on Final Fantasy VI) and can learn specific "special moves" from enemies (think Gau's Rages and Strago's Lores, also from Final Fantasy VI).

*Prati: Copy a party member's actions. Mimic style.

For anyone curious, my friend :iconserjssoda: has drawn three great pictures of her that I'd like to share here, 'cause why the hell not, right? :D………
Volt and Riff
A man some of you may know (and you should take this as an opportunity to get acquainted with his work if you don't) named :iconheavymetalhanzo: is a friend o' mine and I thought it'd be cool to do this for him and in the process get the word out on his original work called "Volt!"

I was gonna do it as a surprise originally, but I was too excited about doin' this, so I spoiled it early to him. XD
I do believe I'm even officially the first to ever do fanart for Volt! yet.

The poses are based off of his picture of them here…

Anyways, I hope y'all dig it, and aside from checking out and watching him, if you liked this and are interested to see more about and of Volt!, go ahead and add the official Volt! group on here:

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
