FIRST 15 PEOPLE TO COMMENT I will pick a character I like from your gallery and write about it or something idfk HAVE AT THEE and do this too I DONT KNOW? WHATEVER!
1. 's AMELIA
OK SHUT UP I KNOW YOUR OTHER CHARACTERS I JUST REALLY LIKE AMELIA OK
BUT NO seriously, Amelia is a wonderful character- especially as the year has passed, my opinion of her has really only gotten better since the first time I saw her, which is saying quite a bit. I'll preface this by saying that I first saw Amelia under the pretenses of scrutiny, attempting to find people for a tournament that I was running- which, though it's a little critical, seems to be the best way I've really gotten to know a lot of characters by picking them for flaws.
In the beginning she was kind of your typical Lara Croft badass type adventure heroine- fair enough, she was part of a tournament after all. But as her character developed through Andrew Martin D's entries, she really found a stupid place in my heart :c There was a really relatable quality to her. I guess even though we're not all from some apocalyptic wasteland militaristic shitstorm humanity that Amelia comes from, there's always something really heart warming about finding compassion in the most unexpected places. I think the fact that Amelia is such a sweetheart, despite her, you know, badassery, is a really grounding aspect of her character. Coupled with Andrew Martin D's absolutely gripping story telling, I admit that his round entries usually make me cry, because he's an asshole, and I love Amelia. A lot. It's been such a pleasure knowing her and her creator and I'm sad to see Aurora come to an end but it's been such a great run and thank you for everything <3
I DIDNT MEAN TO WRITE SO FUCKING MUCH GODDAMN
2. 's KREVOR this is my favorite page ever
KREVOR I BET YOU DIDNT EXPECT THAT DID YOUsob
SHUT UP TOO I JUST REALLY LIKE KREVOR STOP JUDGING ME
I WAS introduced to Devicon in probably a way worse than Amelia, instead of being a JUDGE OF A COMPETITION, I came to know Krevor and Malware as, well, *rougeFetus 's opponents in a competition. I mean have you seen me at basketball games? Don't let me near the opposing team. Or a shot gun.
Or children. With either or all three.
But fucking Devicon just couldn't let me hate the shit out of him. You had to be good at writing, DIDNT YOU? YOU HAD TO MAKE KREVOR, DIDN'T YOU?! I FUCKING LOVE KREVOR. CAN I GET A T-SHIRT?
But in all seriousness, I really enjoy him as that side of TRUE EVIL. Also he's kind of a dick. But he represents things outside of being awesome and a dick. To me, he represents power- (I mean, Regicide, duh ) but wholly, the exploitation and the corruption of it. There's that saying that absolute power corrupts absolutely. I like that idea that something such as that can completely take someone over, corrupt them as absolutely on the inside and outside. He's such an intriguging character because he retains all these human flaws, despite being, well, fucking immortal. Krevor doesn't pussy out on being a complete asshole either. He's evil. And sexy.
ALSO HE WOULD BE A KICKASS JAVERT
3. 's TURNER
OKAY I KNOW EVERYONE has been picking Turner but that's because he's kind of freakign adorable. There isn't a whole lot about his character but uh yeah you might know I have a soft spot for 1) bandits 2)cowboys 3) old style tropey vilgilantes BECAUSE IN FACT I HAVE ONE [link] YEAH SO HE AND FELIX SHOULD BE BROS BECAUSE CUTES. in terms of character design He's adorable and he's got a really cute color scheme. Plus I love the hat feather.
4. 's JOKER AND QUEDAR
I ACTUALLY REALLY LOVE JOKER. I was stuck between Joker and Quedar.
I'LL GET TO THIS IN A LATER ENTRY -shot- BUT I.. was not allowed to JUDGE your Entry to aurora, Joker. BECAUSE IM A NOTORIOUS HAL FAN GIRL. I LOVE HAL SOBS so naturally I admit I would be biased if I allowed myself to judge your round. But I didn't. I DID HOWEVER CRITQUE IT LATER, WHICH IS A TOTALLY DIFFERENT THING, but that being said, I...
absolutely love Joker. Okay. Even next to Hal I ADORE JOKER. HE'S SO WHIMSICAL AND CUTE AND JUST-- He has such a naiive perspective of the world, and such a sweet, cutie pie. I like how he hasn't really grown up- and sometimes you'd expect him to not be able to think things through, but he's surprises you in his random bouts of clarity. It's adorable.
BUT WHILE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT JOKER LETS TALK ABOUT QUEDAR YES SINCE YOU PICKED TWO IM PICKING TWO
QUEDAR IS SO FUCKING CUTE I JUST HE'S SOOOOOO ADORABLE
HE'S AWKWARD AND WELL MANNERED AND HE LIKES BAKING AND HE'S SUCH A GOOD PERSON
and he can put the moves on the ladies. aww yeah
lol no he cant
5. 's GHOST SAMURAI
THIS IS sincerely actually a very cool character. I think if you imagined this guy rendered realistically, he'd be fucking scary as fucking fuck. I'd really like to draw him now. I love creepy things. SECRETLY I've been trying to make a samurai myself! But I hadn't thought of doing it QUITE LIKE THIS, SO KUDOS THIS IS VERY CREATIVEhrgidurghd I LIKE THIS THEME of DRIFTING , since he kind of drifts like Drifter. It gives them kind of like a purposelessness which is FUCKING CREEPY.
6. 's PEEPERS
HEY MAN DO YOU WANNA DO AN ART TRADE SOME TIME? YEAH? COOL
no FIRST OF ALL I CANT GET OVER YOUR STYLE
second of all LOOK AT THIS NIGGA OMG drhgdrghdiug OK Peepers is adorable. look at his little suit and hat and that collar UGH. He's like a little journalist. And extremely cartoony and cute. I really like the style, and I get what sort of thing you're going for, it's very looney toonsey and adorable.
