CAW: Desarmement Characters

Still using Lunaii’s Dollmaker. It’s just very easy to use.

This preview only shows three characters. A surprise compared to the other two I posted.

That’s because Desarmement has fewer recurring characters presently. There are two reasons for that: this story is less romance and group inclusive, and because Adrienne does not take note of many people.

Adrienne is the main character, Soroth is an acquaintance/friend/partner of hers, and Rana is a friend/employee of hers.

Soroth looks far more effeminate in this picture than he should. He also looks far more attractive than he should. He is not ugly, but he is also not traditionally handsome. He is simply charming enough that no one cares.

Rana actually looks pretty good, considering she was the latest addition to the group. She’s a cambion and perhaps the most eccentric of the group.

CAW: Adrienne Inspiration Meme

After all of those avatars of the Noble Bard and Exiled setting races, I decided that it might be a good time to sneak Adrienne in.

This is an inspiration chart. They’re cycling all over Deviantart, courtesy of IzzyWinkle.

This shows some of the characters that I was inspired by when creating Adrienne. No, their size has little to do with how much they inspired the character.

I have realized that I could add more characters to this. Including Black Widow (Avengers), and a few more.

Can’t remember the others at the moment, but you get the idea.

You may recognize the artwork from a previous post. It is a coloured version of that sketch.

When to Introduce the Story

So I realized with Adrienne’s story, I have a question for my readers. So far, her story is set after she has already developed a good deal of skills. Her story is not a coming of age story. It is not about her become a stronger what-have-you.

Not that there isn’t any character development. It is as much character-driven as plot driven.

But. Perhaps I’m too used to writing fan-fictions.

I almost feel as if I -can’t- introduce her, introduce the story, at the point I intend to, because she would seem to powerful.

So, after all the preamble…

Do you have to introduce your character before they become ‘powerful’?

Desarmement Teaser

London is a cesspool of the “supernatural” as if the entire fae realm and all those surrounding decided that the city was perfect for their own devices. It sat very near one of the largest gates to the fae realm. It didn’t help that corruption and chaos ran rampant through the streets, attracting the otherkin like moths to a flame. The whole of the world had been changed. Innocence became an antiquated term for the masses, those who still treasured the attribute isolated in hidden alcoves of the world. Far away from the desecrated grounds of London. It had been five years since the gates had opened and the world had shifted, slowly falling into madness. Five years and Adrienne knew that she had played a role in these events.
The entire month of March had been wiped from her mind. Not a single image would drift past her eyes. Not a single memory of any sort came from that time. Her only recollection at all was when she ‘awoke’ on the last day of the month, a mere moment before the first of April, covered in blood. Dried, crusted and a rusted brown, it had entirely ruined the elegant dress she had been wearing. No bodies, however, none that she could find, at least. Just blood and the heavy emptiness in the pit of her stomach that she couldn’t quite name. The night was quickly pushed to the back of her memory as she went on as if everything was normal. Which, of course, it wasn’t. Not anymore.

CAW: Another Adrienne Sketch

Adrienne again. Like I said, I have a lot of artwork stored up for her, and so far, this isn’t even half of it, to be honest. A lot of the requested art or fanart may not be coming up because I can’t find artist links.

This is one of the first drawings of Adrienne when I started her own story, Desarmement. She is an adult in this picture, in her early twenties.

While the previous artwork has been mostly EGL style (Elegant Gothic Lolita), this is a more Victorian look.

This is largely due to the setting change. Adrienne’s story is now set in a more Victorian setting rather than a modern(ish) setting, such as Harry Potter.

This is her current design.

CAW: Mini Adrienne

Another short post this week. A very small picture of Adrienne!

This picture is very small and actually part of an art style I rarely use. I call it mini-chibi. It’s a typical chibi style drawing, but smaller. I draw it at a size where the head starts as the size of a dime.

So yes, that picture is actual size. If not a bit bigger, actually. Hm. I’ll have to compare to be sure. But there is an uncoloured version of her (and the other characters from HPH) if you click the small Adrienne.
