Cameo Brainstorming

Re: Cameo Brainstorming

Postby Guilty Carrion » Sun Oct 29, 2017 1:26 am

I've got a few base images I'm tossing around, but these two are already going to be in, methinks.

For general hair and eyes:

And thinking to base her helmet around something like Anubis:

Am currently shopping around for armor references and more ideas for her build, so not much more than these two. Being picky never helps in the creation process. xD

Oh wow, nice. I have to confess, I love the whole Anubis aesthetic. Nice choice, Guilty.

Very cool.

So would it be a modification of the helmet that Quain's bodyguards wear? http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive/20 ... 17p014.jpg

Yeah, is kinda what I was thinking, Kern basically said that it'd be a fairly simply modification since Sarghs already have dog helmets. Roma simply goes further for she is the wolf lord.

Chosen role: Legion
Character Name: Romakela
Clan: Sarghress
Martial ability: War Wolves, Reinforced Gauntlets
Mana ability: Blood, utilized for tracking
Race: Drow’lath
Eye color: Gold
Hair color: Black, very long, like a Val.
Favorite expression: Wolfish Grin
Favorite things to say: “Sic Em.”
Favorite activity: Hunting
Quirks, characters flaws and odd behaviors (very important):

A former slave, Romakela embraces and revels in her freedom with a reckless and wild abandon. Some suspect this is why the wolves like her so much.

Roma takes immaculate care of herself, from her hair to her fitness, viewing her body as something akin to a temple and feeling great pride in how she’s built it.

Romakela will never be shackled again, and would sooner gore herself on enemy spears than risk being a slave once more. Any threat to her freedom should be hunted down swiftly, and brutally snuffed out. Regardless of rank or birth.

Adores being in charge, and as befitting an Alpha, tends to take over when she’s left unsupervised. Sometimes even when she is supervised.

Dislikes weapons. Hates the idea of being disarmed, much preferring to make herself into the killing machine.


Equipments , armor and clothes references if any, simple description with chosen colors if not: (Helmet) Sarghress gear, with modified helmet and reinforced armour for the gauntlets and arms. Armour has signs of battle wear, chipped and scraped, likely a repaired hand-me-down from a fallen soldier. Small trophies from ‘hunts’(Beast, Fae and Goblin alike.)
Paired with, if any:
Inspiration pictures, if any , that remind you of the character: (Hair/Face/Personality) (The Pack)
The character’s owner name that you wish to see display in the public database: GuiltyCarrion

Romakela is starting to take shape! She might end up being fairly sympathetic if I play my cards right, despite trying to kill folks.

Changed one of her basis pictures to - Image

Better captures the personality and wild side, I think, whilst still keeping her more Anubis styled aesthetic for armour. Might even make her take hearts during the hunts.

She is shaping up nicely, it will be good to see her in action.

Anyway, in addition to bringing back Nergui, I splurged and bought a legion cameo as well:

-Chosen role: legion
-Character name: Xen’ophon “Tions” Val'Sullisin'rune
-Character former clan if any: Sul
-Martial ability (weapon of choice): falcata and shield (http://ilarge.lisimg.com/image/1793694/ ... rtwork.jpg
https://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/or ... hektor.jpg
https://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/or ... aeneas.jpg)
-Mana ability (Affinity of choice.): Empathy (likes to fill his troops with courage)
-Race : Drowlath
-Eye color : One blue, one orange/red, like Ash’warren
-hair color: Blue, with some red at the tips
-Favorite expression: A wide and toothy grim
-Favorite things to say: “Jolly good then, let’s have a go!”
-Favorite activity: Playing chess (or the drowtales version of it)
-Quirks , characters flaws and odd behaviors (very important):
1. Equally proud of his Sul and Sarghress ancestry, particularly the Tions ancestry that gives him his mutton chops that he loves.
2. Devote follower of the Nine Glories, looks down on Sharess worshipers
3. Incapable of holding a grudge over anything. If he was killed, he would compliment his killer.
4. Loves to sing, not as good at it as he thinks he is.
-Equipements , armor and clothes references if any, simple description with chosen colors if not: Sulisrune clan armor, similar to http://wiki.drowtales.com/images/6/69/A ... ncept.jpeg
customized with painted red tiger stripes, a red sash cloak, and skirt, and a monocle.
-Paired with , if any: None.
-Inspiration pictures, if any , that remind you of the character: http://www.lasplash.com/uploads//5/Pira ... view-3.jpg

I'm confused how do sponsored cameos work? I mean are they cameos people come up with and pay for to be added or are they something the creator adds in and we vote upon or what? I'm a little lost on how this goes, also I'm trying to figure out if this is a good thing or not.

--Chosen role: Ssu colonists

--Character name: Shinhwa Kyorl'solenurn

--Character former clan if any: n/a

--Martial ability (weapon of choice): Staff

--Mana ability (Affinity of choice. Summoning, sealing and golems engineering if chosen will take priority over basic affinity): Spellsong

--Race : pureblood Drowussu. Her skin is pale white in the light.

--Eye color : pink

--hair color: lavender.

--Favorite expression: shy and unsure, clutching a note in the snow

--Favorite things to say:
"The surface is beautiful, but why is it so coooold?!"
"The Holy Mother will be the downfall of our people!"
"Will... Will you help me find Sharess again?"

--Favorite activity: learning about the surface, singing hymns every morning

--Quirks , characters flaws and odd behaviors (very important):

* Shinhwa is like a lost lamb since Kyuusei's death. She was adopted by Kyuusei, who had saved Shinhwa from the slums because of her affinity

* Order of Purity's teachings of racial purity are still in her head. She may be difficult to get along with at first.

* Shinhwa does not like Anahid or her policies, who will destroy what keeps the clan alive through drowolath chaos.

* She was given an invitation by a mystery person to find out why she believes in Sharess, in the colony, as a new arrival. Shinhwa is clueless about how to live there. Literally, "????"

--Equipements , armor and clothes references if any, simple description with chosen colors if not:

Her colors on her clothes are a white and black theme.

She wears white earmuffs and black gloves

She still carries her satchel of leaflets, as a reminder of her adoptive father's service

--Paired with , if any: none yet

--Inspiration pictures, if any , that remind you of the character:

Her original concept: http://wiki.drowtales.com/index.php/File:Shinhwacon.jpg

Her expression:

Her hairstyle:

We pay for them to appear in each chapter

Regular cameos are characters fans make to have them appear in the story. These are generally "back ground" rolls where Kern would normally make supporting "one off" characters for the story. Sometimes these guys are enduring to the fans at large & the artists (like say, Tsuris was), or they are the characters from other members of the studio (like say, Anahid) and thus they become reoccurring secondary cast. In the former's case however, they're still paid for by their creator each time they appear.

This story was already ridiculously cast heavy, and so minus the loss of some of the Kern generated secondary cast (like Melodia) its pretty much a good thing, or at the very least, not a negative thing. A case could be made for it adding extra pages to the story, and thus dragging it out but eh? It was pretty much always an open narrative, and its almost over so you cant really complain about that. Hell chapter 48 was a completely sponsored part of the story (Khorra paid to have it centered around the Belds) and while at first I was like, meh, who cares about the shadow Clan with 4 members, its hard to argue that it didnt add something of value to the story. After that, I pretty much feel the same way about the cameos. -I dont care about most of them personally -thats for their creators to do, but they do make the DTs universe seem slightly more alive.

Sponsored cameos are Kern's characters that fans pay to see more of in a certain chapter. Its a way for the fans to have a "normal" character favorite appear in a more extensive roll* IF they fit into the story line. A good example of this would be Ky'ovarde. Its also a nice way for fans to support Drowtales and I cant think of any negatives. Technically you could sponsor Ariel if you wanted to.

Okay thanks for explaining that. Now I wonder if I had a thousand or so dollars if it was possible to sponsor a short story intermission. (JK.)

For a lot more than that, actually, yes. It's been done, the Beld chapter, as smoke mentioned.

Yeah which is kind of why I said JK as in joke, considering I'd have to raise a lot of money to make that happen.
I could probably buy a used car with the amount of money I'd need to commission that.

So you're looking to bring a jovial side to the violent proceedings? Should be an amusing figure to contrast the inherently dark scenario we find ourselves in. xD
