So while working on story element for my own projects. I was thinking a lot about some of the Shows and Movies I've seen. And the characters those stories focus on and around.

What makes a character interesting? What is it about them that helps draw you into the story? What makes you care about their triumphs and struggles?

For me it's more their interactions with the world around them and how the world reacts to them that makes a character interesting. I've never really found my self being drawn away from or bored of a character solely because of their personality alone. At least that doesn't happen often. There are some rare cases where I can't stand them. Usually only when the "Idiot Hero/Heroine" trope is taken a little too far. For example, Spongebob and Patrick during and after Season 3 of the show.

What about all of you? What do you feel makes a character interesting and why?

Siren Gale NPU 2015 SKHQ
"This character is a Demon Succubus. In my D-Resonate game projects which this character is a part of. Demons are able to breed with either other demons, humans, or Ani-Humans. This game series version of Beast People. Siren is mixed. Part Demon Succubus and part Ani-Human. Since Succubus in both the original lore and in my game series can change their appearance.Siren chooses to change her wings into demonic looking ones and shows her horns. "

A Nude Digital sketch I made a few months ago. Mainly to see just how quickly I could get these done. A little better then the last attempt using her sister.

D-Resonate, Sonata of the Phantasm (Win/Mac/Linux)

Gameplay:
A 2D Hybrid Metroidvania Platformer powered by Unity2D. While the game is seemingly a open metroidvania. It's structured as a hybrid between metroidvania style exploration and semi-linear platformer. While there is a hub map, players are able to explore and play through most of the areas in the game in any order desired. Each with branching pathways making each play through unique. More on the gameplay later. The planned release window is 2016/2017.

Story:
 Strange disappearances have occurred throughout The Sleeping Islands. From the deep and vast Waking Forest, to the bright and vivid Lucid City. From their homes, off the streets, out of stores, and even from their cars, people, Humans and Ani-Humans alike, have been vanishing one by one. And sightings of fabled and once thought peaceful spirits known as Phantasms have been reported all across the isles in an increasing number. Believing there might be a connection between the two. Many Guilds from all over the isles have traveled to the Black Towers. A mystical, abandoned structure rumored to be a door way to the legendary castle of dreams Castle Somnus. One legend claims it to be a paradise where the boundary between dream and reality no longer exists. While another claims it to be a nightmarish castle that shallows up anyone foolish enough to venture within. On one cold night varies guilds each ventured into to the Black Towers. One by one, hoping to find the entrance to this fabled Castle of Dreams, and prepared to face the Phantasms. The creatures once thought to be peaceful spirits.

It's been one week since the guilds set out to reach Castle Somnus. Worried about the safety of his son/daughter. A wealthy middle-aged man drives to Phantom Mansion located in deeper parts of the Waking Forest. Home of Silvia Phantom, a well-known Caster and leader of Lumina Guild. However upon arriving, he soon finds out that she is away on an errand. And the only members of lumina guild available, are her daughters Sarina Phantom and Xaniras Phantom. Itching for a chance for fame and fortune, Sarina takes up the job despite her sister's and her butler Annette's protest. And ensures her now desperate employer that, his child will be back by sunrise. Without a moment's hesitation Sarina dashes into the night. Prepared to face the challenges that await her.



Oh wow I can't believe I didn't have this info posted in a journal yet. XD 

Rookie mistake on my part. Currently working on my Resume as well because I need money and being a self employed Digital Artist alone isn't quite enough. Especially when I still haven't gotten any new commissions in yet. By the way yes Commissions are still open for those interested.

Update Skit 1 by Kyanbu
Update Skit 1
Currently still working on the player(s) and enemy sprites. As well as NPCs too. I also recently made a base sprite to base humanoid NPCs off of to ensure consistency. I don't know why I didn't do that sooner. XD Makes draw them much easier.

More to come soon. Xaniras is next along with an enemy Phantasm.

 No promises on if a second playable character will actually happen though

Remember this? kyanbu.deviantart.com/art/Crim…

May not be as epic in terms of flames everywhere but still a big improvement non the less. Also Xaniras's design is almost finalized. Only minor changes will be made between now and this game's release. 

He last name was changed to match Sarina's (her sister). Because it would be odd for her to have the same living biological mother (Silvia Phantom) and father (Volin Phantom) as her sister but have a different name. Even though they are both still a couple. As oppose to the old "Mischief Knights" project where her relation to Sarina is still the same but their parent are separated (dead mother) and she's raised by their grand parents as part of the "Vandalia" House hold away from Sarina.

Her Bust was also sized down compared to what it use to be and is a bit more balanced out waist to bust wise, she's intended to be plus size/heavy set after all.

And last but not least a new rough draft bio for the new and current project "D-Resonate, Sonata of the Phantasm". Will be cleaned up later. It's very sloppy in it's current state. Honestly, it's hard to really describe 3 Dimensional Characters.

Age: 18
Gender: Female
Job Class: Edge Caster
Bio:
An Aristocrat trained since a young age along side her sister "Sarina Phantom" by their mother "Silvia Phantom" and is a member of her family's guild "Lumina Guild". Xaniras is a skilled Caster who specializes in fire spells and attacks. A calm young woman with an obsession for fire, she spends her free time studying to fine tune her skills. Focusing on defensive tactics centered around the nature of Fire. To make up for not being as physically capable or as agile as her sister. Trying her best to live up to her mother's expectations. Xaniras is also able to teleport short distances to spots she's familiar with. A rare and difficult spell to learn. Her weapon of choice is "Crimson Heart", a Odachi Sword used primarily for spells. Although she is capable of attacking with it normally or as a heat blade. 

Personality Tropes:
At her best she's Reasonable and very knowledgeable. Willing to help out whenever she can. At her worst she has a tendency to be too dependent on fire, and bossy towards others when on duty. Usually she's very distant, prefers reading books and stories over spending time with others.
