(ya know, 'cause it's Fall? :B )


RPGateway wants to feature
YOUR original roleplay character





August's MFC theme will be the winner of the last MFC's character:

Image

    Name: Reika

    Species: Shigami of Fire

    Appearance: She has long red hair in multiple pony tails, and amber eyes. She's about 5' 7 with an athletic body. In artistic pictures of her from her country, she wears a red and gold Japanese style kimono, but she prefers to wear brown shorts, a red Chinese styled top, and a brown arm bands.

    Personality: Reika is short tempered, witty, and quite indifferent toward anything not directly concerning her, or her current master. She can come off as smug, arrogant and rude at times, but she's quite warm hearted when it comes to people she loves, her friends, and kids. She's fairly laid back as long as she's not angry, or around Vada (the Shigami of Water). She also hates wizards. Reika tends to act tough around the other Shigami and people ever since the betrayal, but she's really a very soft person at heart, and is still extremely angry at Randalf, her best friend who cursed and betrayed them.

    Brief Bio: Reika is the Shigami of Fire, and has the ability to manipulate, create, and at times even become fire. She is one of the four immortal beings called the Shigami. 500 years ago there was a great war between the four nations, that forced the involvement of the Shigami. Once the war was over however, the people feared their protectors' awesome power. Reika was betrayed by her best friend, who was a wizard, and he placed a powerful curse on the four to ensure the safety of the people. The Shigami are cursed to be the slaves of the humans who find them, and to serve them. Reika has been the Shigami who was found to most, for her power. In 500 years she's fought more than 200 wars. She's a weapon, and warfare expert.


Image

Re: MFC August: Rise of Reika

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby MEGAcya on Sun Aug 03, 2008 3:57 pm

Okay, here's my entry. I've got a picture with and without colour. I have to post links, cause they're a little big..
Outline.
Coloured.



    Name: Niamh ('neev') Anaïs ('ah-nay-iss') Wilson.
    Roleplay: Hope For The Future.
    Species: Human.
    Appearance: Niamh has long, blonde hair that falls down to about 3 inches past the shoulders. Before the country was taken over, it was her pride and joy; always glossy and well cared for, but now it has become tangled, matted and out of control. Her eyes are an olive-green colour, and surrounded by dark, smudged make-up. She is slim, to the point where she is almost too thin, but that is not uncommon for people in her position. Niamh only has one set of clothes- A low-cut vest of black lace, and a short black skirt. On her feet, she wears simple black canvas-slip ons.
    Personality: Niamh comes across as quite a quiet person, rarely speaking to anyone. 8 years ago though, this was not the case. She used to have lots of close friends, who she loved to spend time laughing and joking with.
    Brief Biography: Half Irish, half French, Niamh grew up in the 'posh end' of London. Up until the take over, her mother was a fashion designer and her father worked as a bank manager. However, in the year 2008, a man called Henry Dorshul 'relieved the queen of her duties', turning england upside down overnight. Women became second-class citizens, young men were forced to join the army, you had to pay a toll to be out in the streets...it was chaos.

    Under his instruction, soldiers took away all the family's possessions, forcing them to live on the streets. Like all other homeless people in the city, they found it impossible to pay the taxes for being out in the street, and both Niamh and her mother had to go into prostitution to pay the fees, otherwise all three of them would face the newly reinstated death penalty.

    A few days ago, she woke up in the middle of the night to find the barrel of a gun in her face, and her parents dead beside her. Somewhere in the midst of her panic, she managed to get away from the solider and ran as fast as she could, not daring to look back.

    When she was looking for a place to lay low, Niamh wandered into an old apartment building, and met a guy called Eamon, who had been hiding there. He told her that the united states had made an announcement, offering to treat any English people who managed to get there as refugees. The two of them, along with several other young people, are planning to make their escape to America on a huge boat, due to set sail first thing in the morning.

Yami, I LOVE the outfit design, and the fire swirling all around her. Great job!

Good coloring, Mega, and clean lines, too! <3

I may have to get in on these again. Now that I moved and don't have cable, I am not a lazy bum flipping channels on the tube. Expect something from me for this contest fo' sho'.

EDIT: Okay. So as soon as I was about to leave for work, I got inspired to draw. I printed out Reika's description, and drew her before getting ready to go to my fiance's house, which is where I have to speed to now. >_> The coloring isn't great...I used colored pencils since I've yet to get around to learning Photoshop. Without cable, maybe I'll finally do that. if my fiance ever gives my laptop back. >=/ The coloring looks even worse since I scanned it, and it cut off part of the picture on the left, but not much. The background is randomly green, because I'm OCD and the lack of any cold colors was driving me nuts.

Anywho, so yeah, this is my submission. <3

I'll edit this post with a bio later as I'm late for a very important date!

Today, Friday, October 10, 2009, is my last day on RolePlayGateway.com.
Everyone give me lots of love, because I shall be handing lots out. <3

Since I don't like the way that picture turned out scanned, my fiance and I are going to work on it in PhotoShop this weekend. He's going to teach me how to use PhotoShop and we're gonna make it all purty and awesome, so don't count that first entry as final! :)

And I don't want to enter the contest--this is just a special present for Kohananinja. :) But I wish I could show it in person. It looks much better in person, because the black is richer. And it's acrylics. Yay! Reika's so cool!

I am simply speechless, daughterofdon. Wow. You are the consummate artist. Plus, it's lovely that you don't want to enter the contest too--saves us mods from some messy deliberating!

I also love MEGAcya's, Yami-Dokuro's, and Angel_Melfina's entries. You all are really pulling out the stops with the fire effects and costume designs! Good luck!

Ooooo!!! That's gorgeous! I was just thinking that someone should do a more traditional rendering of Reika (as mentioned in the profile). And you fooled me with the calligraphy for a moment. :) And the texture of the background adds a lot.
