Oh how I wish I was 5' 10" and didn't give a "hoot" about what people thought of my actions. Neshima, just one of many incarnation of my other me who is never allowed to see the light of day.

Current Residence: California
Favourite cartoon character: Too many!
New journal because, primarily, I need to get a new journal up. 

I'm doing about as well as can be expected but as my last submission reveals, I still have my down days.

Now on to the reason for this journal.

As some of you know, I have been acquiring quite a few characters designs over the past few months.  Since I have reached a slow down point, there are still few talented beings whom I struggle in vain to resist, I am now in the process of creating character cards for them.  These cards will have the original artwork, some information about them, and then my artwork of the character.  My artwork is to cover any design tweaking that may be required.  However, since many characters are fine as is, it also acts to standardize their images.  Since I adopted from 74 different artists (Yes, I know how many artists I adopted from; found that out last night when I was making the "Designed by-" logos for this project Isuzu Slamming Head Icon ) they all naturally have their own styles and bases when making adopts.  Also it will allow me to draw them in different clothing if necessary.  Some of the adopts were in modern clothes and there is nothing modern about this project. 

Why I am telling you all this is because for the next few weeks I will be submitting these character cards and the number will be somewhere between 250 and 300 Amara-skpTwichplz-9 SD.

Yes, I'm crazyGIF My Little Pony - Crazy!.  Yes, this ballooned out of control  tard and balloon .  Yes, the story they are apart of has gone epic Yato (I'm fabulous) [V1].  That is typically what happens to anything I write.

The world they live in has been broken into four or five plots and the characters are being divided between them.

Some of the characters I acquired demanded special treatment.

Saihyou by Black-Wren Saihyou had been around a few years and even participated in another story.  Being an established character, and my favorite, this project originally centered around him.

Desert Warrior Auction - CLOSED by Melixion CLOSED / 10 / Adopt Auction by Yusa-pi Xeno is also an established character but, unlike Saihyou, he was not an adopt.  An old man in the earlier story, the appearance of the young Arabian warrior became the young Xeno design and opened up a new possibility.  The acquisition of Chibus sealed the deal and opened up a whole new chapter in the world completely separate from Saihyou's new story.

CLOSED / 12 / Adopt Auction by Yusa-pi  When this guy stepped onto the scene it was buy first and figure out later.  The quirky personality of the design made him impossible to pass up.  With his acquisition the horns of Ragnarok were sounded for Saihyou's original backstory.  Until then Saihyou had been working with what had occurred in "Forgotten", the story that contained his original role.  Kenrei Reiu took the place of Reihane Kaikiboufuu Inuyasha and so Forgotten's plot was freed of the constraints of being a fanfic prequel.  Subsequently, while major events remained the same, various minor events and details were changed radically.  This also allowed Saihyou to have a development period that didn't originally exist and grant more depth to parts of his personality and choices.

Adoptable 1 [SET PRICE][CLOSED] by shoku-panFox Reen (1) by Black-Wren  Raan was acquired early in the adoption spree but remained a mystery girl even in the early drafts of November.  It wasn't until the later adoption of her twin brother, Reen, did her origins settle.  Reen's personality was quickly established and it caused Saihyou, Mr. Perfect and Self-Righteous to obtain a wilder more disreputable past, turned around by cruel realities of war.  Reen quickly demanded some serious attention.  While he does eventually hook up with his father, Saihyou, he soon enough becomes the focus of the expanding story line.

Half-Dragon Link by Black-Wren Fox Kongo by Black-WrenLink was adopted during my mad dash to acquire Tengu compatible designs.  However, everything about him demanded he be the center of attention and not some side character.  His name Link is because of the Zelda games.  I was binging on Hyrule Warriors at the time I was trying to figure out what to do with him and the name stuck.  Link's adventure will be in a different setting from Saihyou's, though, eventually, the two will cross paths.  Kongo was adopted only a couple of days ago and, thanks to the extra headshot, got himself branded as Saihyou's older brother, a character that hadn't existed prior to that moment.  His part is still being ironed out but he is definitely teamed up with Link and his personality is already established.

As you can see things have gotten well out of hand and I will probably be working on it for years.  That it is an original work has gotten me excited, I haven't been able to write original stories since high school.  Here's the cover for the first story.  While I can't seem to figure out a proper title for it, I am working on it.  Hopefully, I can start posting it before summer.

Heya! I've been noticing you around the adopt auctions a bunch. You've bought a lot of cool designs! Do you have any stories or stuff with them? (You seem to have very good taste so I'm interested to see how you build on them xD)
Black-Wren Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2016
Working on it.  A little writing project has ballooned into a major undertaking.  I'm looking at five possible stories in the same world and I'm still working out who does what where.  This detail affects whether their designs get tweaked a little or stay as is.  I did start writing back in November but for personal reasons had to stop for a bit.  I'm starting to attack the details again.  I do plant to start drawing everyone in character sheets in the near future.  Saihyou, Genie, And Shado by FanasY    This was a cover I had commissioned for the first story.
