Old Sci-Fi Characters by Inonibird Old Sci-Fi Characters by Inonibird
SO HEY, remember when I drew that pic with 24 characters for my 24th birthday? I scrounged up one particular character from an old sci-fi RP I was a part of back in 2005 (eek, oldness :dead:), and recently decided to go back and read it.

Definitely a trip down nostalgia lane. Fun enough for me to try my hand at drawing a few of the characters I played, at least! (my old drawings are laughably awful v_v) The plot was...erm...well, just the shenanigans of college students in a space university. :shrug:

Top left: Aglar Ewen! I loved him even then, but probably even more, now...gahh, the personality/quirks/etc.! Tall, quiet fellow, majoring in Parapsychology, quite psychic/telepathic/telekinetic/all that jazz. Always wore that big fluffy coat...I guess his home planet must've been warm. He usually didn't say anything (and pretty much refused to talk to anyone he didn't like 8I), but when he did speak, it was usually to impart a gentle warning of something just about to happen, or to provide enigmatic wisdom. I dunno, he was pretty cool. Favourite moment happened when a character, having found out he was psychic, asked: "What am I gonna say next?" and Aglar replied, "'Wow'." XD (although there was another touching scene when a character hugged him for being so helpful and understanding x3)

Top right: Kaeden Lezra. What a strange character. He was the first I created for the RP, and was intended to be one of the more important characters, but as he developed it became clear that he was a bit of jerk and not terribly sympathetic. Super-strong, mildly psychic, majoring in Holographic Design, he was incredibly aloof and pretty self-centered. Most of the female characters (and then some) had crushes on him of varying degrees, but it turned out --and he never bothered to share this with anyone-- that he was engaged, with his fiancee back on his home planet. Aglar refused to address him directly, even though they were roommates, if that says anything. 9_9 At the same time, though, it seemed like he was actually a bit socially awkward, and did want to become friends with the other characters...he just wasn't that great at it.

Bottom left: Miral Canskastis. Hrm. I'm not sure why I drew her. She was one of my most boring, underdeveloped characters in the story. I think she was a history major or something? @_@ But yeah, she was a bookworm, very shy, super sweet, and...frankly dull. But she looked like a foxgirl. Maybe that's why I drew her. :P (actually yeah, I've only drawn humanoids here; the other female character I played, Valerie, who was VASTLY more interesting/entertaining, looked like a weird dinosaur/dragon thing, so...I dunno, didn't feel like drawing that ^^;)

Bottom right: Irimsha, aka Ish! Oh, Ish. He rapidly became the favourite and most-oft featured character in the story. How did I describe him in that "Two Dozen Characters" pic again? "Transgender vampiric alien pirate art student". Yeah. He was best pals and roommates with the aforementioned Valerie (which was OK, 'cuz she was nonhumanoid and he was pretty much sexless), and dear god...those two...the dynamic...I dunno, it was just flamboyantly hilarious. xD Anyway, Ish's species was some sort of awful scourge that was ostensibly tamed (by medication o_O), which is why he could attend the university, but he could still woo and feed on his fellow classmates, it would seem. And there was something about a sponge-like personality-- in the sense that he took on the characteristics of the people he hung out with, so hardly anyone knew his real personality, including himself (kinda sad). But yeah. Ish, man. If there's a character I would want to revisit and adapt to a new story, it's definitely Ish.

Okay, done reminiscing~ xD Back to CURRENT projects!

If you ever got the time I'd love to see more of this, and I'm sure that everyone else would :meow:

Irimsha has a lot of Puck (from gargoyles) going on. Inspiration much? :P

Nope. Didn't watch Gargoyles until, gosh, '08? A friend showed me an episode, and that was enough for me to check out the rest. :shrug: And...what, is it the hair? Actually, that reminds me more of Hyena! (weird, they used that style with the two locks hanging in the front for a few characters, didn't they)

It was the hair and a little bit his expression. The channel that broadcasted Gargoyles here didn't do the entire series and most episodes from the first season and a half were rerun a lot. So Puck was the first one I thought of (having taped 'the mirror' and watching it extensively didn't exactly help either *brentspinercrushinmyyouth*). I need to watch the series again.

That's a GREAT episode! The animation was top-notch~ And yeah, I rewatched the whole series shortly after watching for the first time, lol. Then again (partially) sometime this past year. XD (goooooood stuff)

Ish should appear in CLM as some overly cheery vampire, that got on Saz's nerves. But, then again, everyone gets on his nerves...:giggle:

Ahh, memories. Old projects are always a little weird to go back to... like revisiting places you went on holiday to as a kid, or replaying old games.

Aglar is mah favourite, but Ish does sound pretty awesome. If you ever see a suitable place in a story, regenerate him right up. =D

Yeah, Aglar is a VERY close second favourite~ He was just never as developed as Ish, but meh! If he were regenerated, he could actually get more depth, heh.

He has those adorable babby seal eyes. :meow:

Yay for regeneration! It works for just about every character, after all.

except the Master, lol
