Character 3

Character 4

  1. Roleplay Type: World of Equestria Name: Hogo-sha no Arashi Doro Nickname: Hogo-Sha, Sha, Stormy Weather Sex: Male Age: Young Adult (By yokai standards) Species: Yokai (Okami) Eye color: Pale Yellow Coat: Black with small arcs of yellow lightning flowing through it. Mane/Tail: Long and wispy, glows in the dark. Physique: Diamond Dog Okami Residence: Wanders around Occupation: Adventurer, Bodyguard, Do-gooder, occasional singer Cutie Mark: N/A Unique Traits: Supernatural Sense of Smell: Like others in his family, Hogosha posesses an incredibly acute sense of smell. Is capable of sniffing out anything and anyone provided he’s caught their scent once before… and the weather is good and his allergies aren’t acting up. Magic Condition: As a Yokai, Magic is an inherent part of his being. This often manifests as the glow and bolts of ethereal lightning that shoot across his fur, but also is shown through great shows of speed strength and healing. Storm Magic: Can conjure storm clouds at will and can even walk on them and use them for quick transportation. Can also temporarily turn his body into stormclouds for short periods of time. Windy Breath and Lung Capacity: Is able to hold his breath for long periods of time without need to inhale again. Can produce howling gales of wind by blowing or just by holwing. Spell Beads: Six Beads that hover around Hogo-sha’s neck. If he bites down on one it grants him a magical boon with different benefits and drawbacks. Wall Walking: A passive magical aura that lets Hogo-sha run and walk on almost any solid surface as if gravity had been altered. Sturdiness: Increases his endurance and lets him redirect potent forces away from himself. Stormcloud: Makes himself intangible for a short time and can turn himself into a stormcloud in the same shape and size of his default form. Lightning generation: enhances his electrical magics, can make his fur shocking to the touch, and can bark lightning strikes at a maximum of six times. Alter Sword: Can alter the properties of his weapon, typically leaving it as a Bokken in most situations. When needed he will turn it to normal (if incredibly sturdy) sword. Can only change and reshape his custom sword made by a family friend. Bigger and Badder: Sacrifice his storm and illusion magics to increase his size, strength and speed. Disliked using it as it locks him into the form for hours in exchange for the massive change. Only makes him larger than a carriage but smaller than a medium sized building. Shapeshifting: Capable of switching between his two forms easily in most circumstances. Currently, stays in a diamond dog guise most of the time but is working on a pony one. Well Read: Is a big bookworm. The dwelling he had back in the mountain was essentially a small library that took up most of the space. Has deep knowledge of both eastern and equestrian poetry and literature. Not to the same degree as a professional scholar, but still very informed. Musical knowledge: Has been taught how to play bass guitar by his twin brother, tends to listen to a lot of jazz or occasionall jazz fusion. History: Hogo-Sha Was born to litter in a forest in Neighpon to pair of proud parents and several siblings (one of whom was lost). His Mother was Nijurkuya, a former delinquent Yokai and skilled mage from the city who seemed to adore seeking out trouble. The pup’s father was a well known Okami of Legend who had been born before Neighpon had even been formed. Not long after he was born, Hogo-sha earned his name when he proved to be an oddly fussy and protective pup when it came to his family. Even when at his smallest he would nip and growl when an unfamiliar scent approached him or his family. At the age when his eyes were barely opened his bark proved worse than his bite. Like the rest of his siblings, Hogo-sha was raised on the mysterious Green Mist Mountains: A secluded Mountain peak in Northeastern Neighpon. Despite being the most competitive among his siblings he was also the most protective of them. When one of them came back home late he would continuously badger his parents to let him help scent them out. Even when they told him no he would still go out to search on his own. When he was out exploring the mountains one day, Hogo-sha went exploring by the river. Having seen his parents catch fish when they visited down here, he decided to attempt to catch some himself. He stepped further and further into the stream until he went too deep and was snatched up by the current. Lucky for the pup, one of his brothers was present and managed to save him from drowning. Since then he gained an intense fear of water… and thanks to growing closer to the sibling who saved him: a deep appreciation of music. Around his late teens, Hogo-sha began to travel outside with his mother and father on visits to the countryside and cities. On most of their visits, he would often spend long periods of time in libraries or bookstores. Mostly he would buy stories of folktales, mythology, history, samurai hoofbooks and… more than a few poetry collections. On the rides home, he would quietly read and absorb the information. One day he noticed that His Father was in a few of these, with many stories to his name. Stories of a disagreement with a trio of Katakirauwa, A great battle against an ancient Bear Yokai, Even leading a small army of yokai against caribou invaders in the not too distant past. These stories instilled in the young wolf the desire to forge stories of his own… hopefully not so many as silly as his fathers but more of the thrilling kind. He often would badger his father to tell him first paw accounts of the stories, asking him how those adventures ever got him excited. The answer was almost always something along the lines of making him exhausted just thinking about them. On one visit he caught a glimpse of an old newspaper he discovered that Taira had gone on a short rampage across the countryside near Polohama… back when he and his siblings were born. When he confronted him about this, the old wolf confessed that one of the pups had been captured by poachers not long after being born and had been taken to a Pony city. Taira tried to track down the pup but thanks to the skill of the poachers they managed to hide her scent and disappear into the urban jungle. Hogo-sha was shocked and disheartened. He promised not to share the story with his brothers and sisters, but the knowledge left him with a feeling of betrayal and broke the pedestal he put his father on. Once he was old enough he departed the mountain range and promised both his parents he’d only return occasionally until he’d made a legend for himself and became powerful enough to protect all the pack on his own. As an adult, he ended up traveling across the land and beyond in order to hone his skills in any way he could. He had focused so much on his other types of magic that his shapeshifting wasn’t yet as reliable. To make up for that skill deficiency he took on the form of a creature that wasn’t too different from his normal form: A diamond dog. In this shape, he would travel across Neighpon challenging various dojos to test his skill and even finding a master to teach him other forms of martial arts and swordsmareship. In time he did manage to make a reputation for himself, a rumor of a diamond dog who would come into dojo’s across the east and battle various masters. He won many times and lost just as much, but still, he constantly strives to better himself through the conflicts. After a while, some even began seeking him out to teach them what he knew as he grew. Was Recently seen fighting in the Sarvaarberg Arena as a Diamond Dog. Character Personality: Hogo-sha is at his heart a well meaning but overly enthusiastic Yokai. Deeply concerned with protecting the things he loves, he often buries himself in absurd challenges and tasks to make himself stronger. In pursuit of this goal he has already managed to travel across the lands of Neighpon, Long Guo, and has recently began to test himself in the savage lands of Whitescar. Comparing Hogo-sha to your typical strong, silent warrior type may seem accurate at first. However, he often shows a more relaxed if occasionally awkward side to himself once befriended. While he prefers to keep things simple, he isn’t the type to turn down a chance at merriment or a good meal. He almost always carries a book with him on his person, typically it will be some sort of mystery fiction or romance novel he has found himself engrossed in. When he has some form of down he can be found visiting Jazz clubs or in the company of his brother when he runs into him. Hogo-sha may act brave in most situations, but he actually has a couple notable fears. His most prominent being a fear of deep waters. When traveling on boats, he has been known to stay in his cabin and refuse to come out until they meet the land. If in the presence of spiders he tends to do one of two things: Freeze up or panic. Sometimes he may one after the other! The more personal fear he has is letting others down. Character Summary: A somewhat dorky traveling swordswolf who wants to protect what matters to him and hopes to find more things that matter on the path he goes!
  2. Name: Ra’nu Senshi Sex: Male Age: Ancient Species: Okami (Typically disguised as a kirin) Eye Color: Red, glowing in his true form. Character Color: His true form is black in color, though there are white parts. Most notably, most of the fur on his head is white, giving the impression of a lion-like mane of white hair surrounding his face. His pony form is green in color, with sky blue horns, scales, and hooves. Mane/Tail: His pony form boasts a mane and beard combo that obtains much the same effect as the white parts of his fur in his wolf form. Somewhat wild and long, the mane almost seems to flow into the beard to encircle his face. His tail is fairly short in comparison, mostly just a tuft of hair. Both are a pure white in color. Physique: Just as physically imposing as his pack leader Taira, if not more. He is stocky and muscular, also sporting an impressive height. Also like his leader, he sports bits of cloud flowing off his limbs around the ankles. He also has an ethereal scarf floating near him that is red in color. Residence: Green Mist Mountains Occupation: Guardian. Currently wandering in search of his son. Cutie Mark: His pony form has a cutie mark of three gray gears interlocked and turning. Unique Traits: Keen Senses: Being an okami allows him to utilize a better sense of smell and hearing than most others. Magic: His magic mostly consists of shield spells as well as levitation and the occasional offensive blast. Equipment: He tends to carry around a pair of katanas that are rather unremarkable. Scarf: While it is always present in his true form, he has learned to hide it in his pony form, making it invisible while he is disguised. History: While his childhood was good and fun, and this tended to transfer into his adult life as a guardian for the tribe, there were some ups and downs. He met his wife, Nise, when she stumbled upon the mountain pack and he was part of the group that greeted her. He knew from his first look at her that she was the one, and they led a happy life together, even birthing and raising a son. That happiness was was not to last though, as one day while he was out performing his duties, his son was stolen from him. Enraged, Ra’nu was about to go on a rampage to get him back. His wife managed to calm him down though, sending him off on a rescue mission with a calmer and more focused mind. She even went with him to provide support. Though he has yet to find his son, he will not stop until his family is reunited once more. Personality: He is a rather serious individual when it comes to protecting others, but he can be a real sweetheart to those he cares about. He is friendly, all in all, and willing to take any number of hits if it means keeping those he cares about safe. He will give his all to save everyone, but he also knows that can be impossible at times.

    5th chibi is done! This one was oddly nostalgic since I used to draw nothing but wolves back in the day. Nensho belongs to PyroBlaze

    After the previous picture, the inevitable follow came as a, "where's the other one?" I like how the Celestia one came out more, especially the hair - I thought working with Luna's hair would be easier, but the lack of different colors actually made it a lot harder. Still, not too bad I don't think. Luna © Hasbro

    Just kinda felt like drawing something cute and simple, so here's a baby Ochiru, how she might have looked right after her cherry blossom grove first bloomed. Featuring special summer edition! I like to think the mask that serves as her face was able to mimic facial expressions so that her feelings could be conveyed like a normal pony/Yokai, but it became blank and still after her grove was destroyed. So now she has a perpetually empty expression on her face. Maybe if she ever gets some of her power back though, her mask will be able to smile like this again.
  6. Name: Taira-No-Yamamoto or “Yamato Taira” Sex: Male Age: Younger than you think, older than you’d hope. Species: Okami (Wolf Yokai) Eye Colour: Bright Green Coat: A rich, Beige shade of brown. Mane & Tail: Has a rather full mane of grey hair, with curious streaks of minty green only visible in some light at certain angles. Physique: Stocky and muscular Kirin Form True Form: Residence: Considers a large mountain range north of Mount Kaminichi his and his family’s territory, known commonly as the Green Mist mountains. Currently has a small shack at the base of the mountain by a town closer to civilization where he will meet with tourists who wish to see the area (in pony form of course). Occupation: Mountain Guide. Cutie Mark: Has no natural one but in his qilin form he makes use of a mark depicting two mountain peaks partly shrouded by mist. Unique Traits: Mist Manipulation: As a yokai native to the mountains, Taira is very familiar with mists, clouds and high altitudes. As he grew he shaped his magical power to become more intune with them until he was able to generate his own mist from within himself and even have it come off of his fur like a great cape of glowing vapor. After lifetimes of training and effort and more than a few life or death struggles, Taira has managed to make the mists he summons a tactical boon, a weapon, and a utility at once. When outside his territory he is able to create mist-screens that can cover more than an acre of land to hide himself or his allies, or at the cost of lessening the mist’s coverage he can create forms of living mists capable of following simple orders, but being very easily dissipated and fragile. For other occasions he is capable of shaping mist into other forms and making them tough enough to serve as shields or soft enough to cushion a great fall. He has even conjured some around his paws that let him run through the skies. Supernatural Sense of Smell: As a wolf Taira’s nose is exceptionally sharp, as an okami his nose is better than even the best normal wolf. In his own territory he has proven able to smell intruders from miles away on his best days. His nose has proven the bane of many a mage trying to explore many ruins on the mountains as he is able to smell through most forms of magic and track down casters just by being in the area where they last used a spell of some-kind. However a sense of smell is just that, a sense of smell: and can be outwitted by anyone masking their scent well or just by overwhelming him with powerful scents. Territorial Empowerment: For reasons even he is not entirely understanding of, Taira’s degree of power is greatly tied to his native territory and that of his pack. While in the mountain range he calls home, he is powerful enough to completely cover the tops of the mountains in his own magical mists and hide it from view of any who might try to spy on his kin. When he leaves the area in order to bring back food however his power can fade rapidly. At his most magical weakened state he would say he is reduced to the level of a highly trained breath magic practitioner, but the amount of mist he can produce is greatly diminished and he is left with his more physically bound endowments. Supernatural Athleticism: Being a being with inborn magic has it’s perks. His long life and exercises allow Taira immense stamina and incredible degree of speed, combined with a lesser, but still impressive degree of strength. Hitodama Conjuration: While Taira is in no way as gifted as foxes are with the mysterious flames, the old wolf is capable of summoning and generating several wisps at once, one large one flaring up above his head in his true form most of the time. These flames however are completely harmless and only serve to give him an interesting light show once in awhile. Breathing and Lung Capacity: Taira has learned the hard way that he is capable of holding his breath for incredibly long amounts of time, having been able to survive being submerged underwater for several hours while wounded. This has proven to be quite useful as well as a way to get the drop on potential meals or just help cleaning around the house. Sometimes he wonders if his lungs are bigger on the inside. Overwhelming Presence: Being a powerful magical entity even outside of his territory, Taira has a sort magical presence that can be felt by those well versed in magic or other yokai. Most average ponies are unable to feel it unless Taira either unintentionally or willingly lets it loose. The best way to describe this presence is almost like a beacon that will broadcast any particularly powerful emotions he is experiencing in a large radius around him. While it doesn’t cause any damage or harm anyone, it can greatly unnerve many creatures, such as birds in trees suddenly flying off, the hair on someone’s neck standing on end, or just switching on a fight or flight reflex. The most intense this presence has gotten was during the time Niju and his pup was stolen by the hunters, where Taira’s rampage and malicious anger was able to felt across the countryside and resulted in many villager fleeing their towns until he finally retreated. Shapeshifting: While very old and skilled in many ways, Shape-shifting haunt been a strong suit for Taira. Most of his forms will always have some aspect of his true form 'leaking' into his disguise. With some assistance and lessons from Niju however he has managed to perfect a kirin disguise that doesn't require him to hide his horns as much. No matter what form he takes he will almost always have bright green eyes, and the scars of the past on him. History: A long time ago in ancient Neighpon… Before the rise of cities and magitech, before the great shogunate, and before even the war that shook the land… there was pack of okami who lived on a misty mountain range north Mount Kaminichi. Here is where Taira’s story begins. This pup was born quiet, so much that at first they worried he may not have made it. It turned out the puppy was merely peaceful, and so the parents give him a name that matched. As a pup Taira was a curious and despite his peacefulness at birth he showed a fondness for play fights of youth. Often he would travel down the mountains, further north to see what laid beyond the mists. When he ventured down one day he what looked like a great brown hill climbing up the mountain and towards his homeland. Choosing to investigate he along with a sibling discovered this hill was actually another yokai, a bear, but this one was… different. It barely spoke, acted more feral than any of their mystical kind and didn’t hesitate to attack the pair, stalking the two pups through the woods until they were cornered. Soon though the pack had seen the commotion and defended their home… At least they tried to, the great bear was fought but its immense size combined with its raw magical might drove back the pack and forced them to retreat to the base of the mountains. This demon bear was not a problem only to the wolves it seemed: Various other yokai had been driven out of their territory and forced to fall back and make new homes in unfamiliar places. At the bottom of the mountain, Taira learned the beast’s name: Shinku-no-Kabuto. The pup took that name to heart. In some way Taira felt responsible for what had happened in that he had attempted to communicate with Shinku… and as a result the pack had to move away from it’s place of power. Now they were all left scattered at the base of the mountains in unfamiliar forests. The first few months were turbulent to say the least. Many of the smaller yokai were already not fond of wolves and the pack barely got any sympathy from their closest relatives of the Inugami and Ha-Inu. There was a small group of Taira’s pack that were planning to try and take back the mountains, even though by this point they could tell that the land had no more of their natural magics in it: having been replaced by Shinku’s corrupting influence. They learned more bears had been moving to the mountain tops… surely becoming the monster bear’s minions and guards for his territory. Soon the small presence in the pack spread beyond it. A union of various yokai had joined together… and even a few of ponies coming to the lands had decided to help the yokai reclaim their territory. Taira lended his aid by borrowing books on conflict from some of mortal traders. The now ‘teenage’ wolf took the knowledge within to heart and lead several smaller packs to sabotage many routes the bears would take and stage traps for them. Usually Taira was the bait seeing as he was the fastest runner and could hide his friends in mist. As lesser minions of the great bear on the mountain grew few and far between, a great roar echoed across the lands below. All of the yokai in the alliance knew what it was: a challenge. Taira figured that it was most likely to end in a battle at the peak of the tallest mountain near mount Kaminichi. When the allied Yokai came and fought they had learned Shinku had left his strongest lieutenants in the path of the armies to slow their advance and weaken them before they reached him. Shinku declared this challenge on the night of a great blizzard so turning back would be nearly impossible for those involved… except maybe the kamaitachi. The Night seemed to go on forever. Many Yokai having fallen and others joining to take on demon bear in one final match to decide the future of the mountain range and northern neighpon. Various Yokai groups fought against the bear territory guards, drawing Shinku’s forces thin enough that a ‘small’ force of the best fighters could slip deeper into the mountains and confront Shinku in his great palace of stone. There were a hundred of them and by the night’s end they would lose ninety percent of their ranks.. One of the casualties of the nightlong battle was actually the pack’s alpha male who wound up taking a swipe meant for Taira by Shinku himself. The second alpha managed to wound him only be smashed into the snow, but survive. Eventually Taira and a few mismatched yokai, and one earth pony were left. The earth pony had brought some product of Neighponese engineering with him: Some sort of fireworks launcher. He’d managed to miraculously keep it dry enough to still function. A small tactical retreat turned into a very rushed plan to end the demon bear once and for all. Taira and the last surviving alpha struck great gashes at the beast with their teeth, Shinku being a great red beast of malice leaving a trail of crimson across the snow. Still he was not slowed down. The two wolves continued their battle until they drew Shinku to a cave whose mouth they had covered in thin layer of Taira’s Mist. In order to keep the enraged yokai from noticing what laid inside the hidden cave Taira was going to have to keep focused even as his wounds made him woozy. He managed to keep the shroud up long enough for Shinku to position his chest over the cave mouth and the pony to fire several fireworks into the beast’s belly, just as the bear delivered a swipe to Taira’s chest sending the wolf flying several yards away. With smoke rising from Shinku’s gut the group breathed a sigh of relief , believing the day finally won. Instead the beast rose once more, and crushed the firework cannon and knock the wind out of second alpha of the pack, Taira rose up once last time. Seeing the great bear’s movements were slow and clumsy and delivered on last attack that finished off the menace of the mountains. WIth the previous alphas gone the pack chose Taira to lead them for the foreseeable future. With what he thought was the worst of it behind him and his pack, Taira made it personal mission to remove every last shred of Shinku’s trace for the Green Mist Mountains and allowed many yokai who had joined the alliance free passage through the mountains. The members of his pack left got to work and within a year's time the only trace left of Shinku was in his palace and in the spot where he was finished. Taira’s days at the top of the mountain with his clan was one of the favorite times in his life. These days lasted only a few short years… well, short for taira in retrospective. During his time as a unchallenged alpha he caught the strangest scent and commotion from the edge of the mountains. He had heard that many of the ponies and some visitors from the east who had dragon features, were having trouble with these strange horned invaders from somewhere very cold. These ‘Care-eh-boo’ were beginning to come closer and closer to the mountains. They brought engines and things of strange wood to the base and soon there was noise! The horned invaders were attempting to hollow out the side of his pack’s mountain in a mining operation. This insult to his pack’s territory would not stand and an avalanche that destroyed a great deal of the caribou’s operation would signal the start of another war for Taira to fight in. This time however he was much older and more powerful than when he’d fought Shinku. Still, he lead and directed his pack along with volunteers from other yokai species in attacks and sabotage against the caribou contingents sent to conquer the north. ON the few times Taira and his forces met the caribou in open battle, Taira would often manage to out maneuver the leader of the northern invasion, yet still meet him several times on the battlefield. This Caribou was a fearsome creature, someone who fought with ferocity and cunning. In their final confrontation he managed to get a good cut in across Taira’s snout, Taira however would wind up taking off one of the general’s hind legs. With his forces in shambles and already the invasion forces in the southern portions of the island country being driven back by a united Neighpon, The general would flee back to his homeland. When he war with Whitescar ended Taira learned that several of the yokai and the ponies who’d helped get them this far calling him something with a nice ring to it: Ookami-No-Taisho (The Wolf General … or if read a certain way ‘Great Spirit General’) This was a name that spread across the region in time, while Taira simply desired to return home and contemplate some things about himself and his pack as a whole. These wars had gone on for a long time and he’d lost many a good wolf, leaving more than a few parentless pups. Taira had also heard of an increase in poaching of his kind. Apparently the mortals had a soft spot for the fur of his species… and were keen to take it by force. Taira requested that his pack try to stay in the mountains as long as they could for their own safety. Such a request however wasn’t one many of the younger wolves could hope to follow. Soon Taira knew only that most of his pack had left the mountains and with all the other yokai busy licking their wounds he could tell no one was going to attempt to take the mountains while he was gone. Eventually even Taira had felt an urge to wander: To see the world he had managed to help preserve through his actions. In his travels, Taira came to learn more about these ponies. They were clever! He still owed the defeat of Shinku to their ingenuity in the past and now some of the things he was seeing were even more impressive… if somewhat off putting for him to see. While he wandered, he was far from understanding of local customs. Most of the time the villagers would think he was some mad pony who would stumble through their villages, get things to eat, watching them work and then leave. In some of the villages however there were moments his true form was exposed in one situation or another. ONe of his least glamorous moments was when a trio of pig yokai (katakirauwa) Who decided to give him a sample of of sake for the first time in his life… Taira wound up drunk enough that he engaged in a playful chase with the three pigs. By the time the sun came up he’d woken up to see he’s blown down all three of their dwellings and they demanded some form of recompense. Taira, being both hungover and superbly embarrassed offered them a place of sanctuary among his mountain range if they ever got into any trouble. The event that night had been seen by the villagers of that town however and many of them remember the day a giant wolf covered in green mist chased a trio of one eared, pigs with glowing eyes through the streets of their home. One time on a day when hunting wasn’t going well and he was desperate for something to eat, Taira would see a small kirin filly traveling alone through the woods. As she hopped she would drop small bits of fragrant treats and carefully, Taira would trail behind her to snap them up until she reached a hutt in the middle of the forests. Inside was an elderly kirin who was seemingly stuck in bed. She looked rather small so he was sure there was no way that the two could finish all the food they had, So he popped his head up from the window and asked if he could try some… only to forget he’d not taken his disguise and in a panic the two kirn would bolt from the cabin and leave the food. Finders keepers! He thought before eagerly digging in and leaving just as they returned with a stallion brandishing something mean looking. Hoping to keep from starting an unnecessary fights from home, He allowed the stallion a strike to his side and hurled himself into a river where he held his breath for several hours until the family left and he could sneak away. AFter leaving more than a few tales of both funny and thrilling exploits all over the north and some of the south, Taira would return to the mountains. Many of his his stories are told today as folktales and the like, and he is in no hurry to prove them true or false, nor was he back when he returned to the mountain range. While there Taira would find peace and quiet among its peaked and in the large grove hidden among them. Here he spent many days in quiet contemplation even as more of his pack left to see the rest of the world. There were dull moments of course, but he still had a few friends from other yokai species would come by. Soon though something new arrived. Another wolf. One different from the kinds he’d met before. She was a bit on the small side and she smelled of the city. That loud and busy place south of of the mountains. Her name was Nijurkuya Hane and she was a bit odd. He’d not met a wolf who’d come so far in his territory for no reason other than to play. He let her stay and with most of his old pack gone they had the range to themselves. This time together eventually lead to love. SHe convinced him to go out again and see some of the changes in the world since he last roamed it and he agreed. The two wandered the countryside and visited many places together, her teaching him some easier ways to fit in amongst the equines. Before they had finished their trip, Niju was expecting pups. Taira, was at first panicking seeing as they were already far from their territory and he didn’t know if he could sufficiently protect her while they were born. During this time Taira and Niju discovered they were being tracked by okai poachers… He and niju tried to find a safe spot to deliver and while it was very touch and go, soon the pups were born. WHile Taira went out to get food for niju though, the hunters had found them again and managed to snatch one of the pups from Niju while they rested just AS taira arrived. The hunters tried to get more but the large wolf made short work of them. The time they bought for the other hunter however put him far out of reach and Taira didn't want to risk more coming. Thankfully, it turned out they were in the area of a forest Okami by the name of KamiKakushi no Shinrin. Taira requested that his mate and her pups stay with the spirit while he tried to capture the stolen runt of the litter. KamiKakushi agreed but only at the cost of a set of plates that they couple had brought back from their travels around Neighpon. THe two gave him the plates and Taira went on something of a rampage around the countryside in search of his daughter, scaring more than a few inhabitants and eventually tracking down the hunter who sold her. She told him that she’d already sold the runt to some wealthy city pony. No One is sure of what happened to that poache. Taira went to the city and tried his best to scent his daughter out, but all the smells and odors of the city threw him off. Unable to find her he could only go back to Niju and hope that they could care for the pups they had. In time sadness would fade and the family would move on. Now, Taira, Niju and their pups live mostly on the mountains. Some of their children left to see the world, others stay and assist their father in protecting the mountain and one day wish to call this territory theirs and lead the pack. Truthfully Taira is eager for the day one of his pups will knock him from the top of the mountain as the he could actually relax and not worry so much about keeping them out of trouble all the time. In order to help feed his family, Taira has taken up a few side jobs. His most enjoyed one is something he admits could be considered somewhat stereotypical: His profession as a mountain guide. He has also considered expanding his territory so he can build a fishing business near the coastline so he can better feed the pack.For now though he is content to show over excited tourists or ambitious adventurers his territory for a fee and try to steer them out of harm's way. Summary: Taira is a old wolf (relatively) with a long history and many a story about him being told in the countryside of Northern Neighpon. He has a lived a long life and had quite a few adventures and forged a number of bonds across the country with some of the older Yokai. Nowadays he merely wishes for a quiet, occasionally lively life with his family. Around friends and the previously mentioned family, Taira is a generally cordial and curious wolf. Rather than a battle hardened, stoic, veteran of ancient wars. Taira can be described as something of a pleasant goof. He’s generally eager to get to experience new things, food especially and can be something of a klutz while in his kirin form. On his downtime he rather enjoys fishing, both the natural way and in the ponies’ way. He enjoys going out drinking, even though he is horrible at holding his sake and can be rendered completely drunk from two cups alone. This wolf’s less desireable traits might be his tendency to get somewhat caught up in the past when wounds from it reopen. If he’d learned about that he left something unfinished or something important behind on his many adventures in his long life he is consumed by an urge to gain a degree of closure around those events. Along with that minor compulsion, Another fault of his would be a strange temper: He’s very much a wolf who is very slow to anger, but when is angry he can stay that way for much longer. While Taira has improved from his early days of equine and dragonpony interaction, he still experiences slip ups and will accidently keep some lupine mannerisms. One example is he still tends to sniff new acquaintances unless stopped by someone more experienced blending in (usually Niju). Some of the events in his past have left a degree of scarring upon him, not just in the physical sense. The events of the conflict with Shinku leave him deeply disturbed and uncomfortable about the snow. To this day as well, He is still very wary and untrusting of bears or bear youkai.

    New Okami picture, for new Neighponese royal! I'm glad to see Ryuichi's family has expanded a fair bit. I've always loved having OCs that are a part of a played OC family. Akarui here is the father, and he's so Iroh that it hurts. In a good way~ Akarui Yozora (c) Mudbug

    Wow it's been a while since I've uploaded, or even drawn, any art. Luckily, a certain someone was kind enough to remind me that there was a Neighponese royal who didn't have any Okami art yet...a fact that had to be quickly rectified. Bellosh's character Kaze is Ryuichi's youngest sibling, and she's utterly adorable and full of Daw. This is not opinion, this is fact, kthx! Jiyūna Soyokaze (c) Bellosh

    Normally I put the character log artwork of my characters into compilation posts every so often, rather than posting them all separately. But I decided to upload Kakushi's log/post banner by itself, because I really love how this one turned out. I even like it a lot better than the original art I drew of him - there's something about it that just looks both more wolfish and more ethereal/mystical to me.
  10. From the album: OC Art

    Was thinking to myself the other day, that the last handful of pictures I've uploaded to my gallery have all had white backgrounds. I try to make sure I draw some pictures with non-white backgrounds every once in a while, just so I don't get in the habit of not bothering with backgrounds, and also because it's nice to see something other than blinding white when I'm browsing the pictures I've uploaded. Which is when I decided to do another Okami picture, because I haven't done one in a while. And my new character helped with the inspiration, whaddya know! Considering the different layers Xiu's mane has, I'm fairly pleased with how this one turned out. The simplistic background, too, I thought melded well into the "Okami" style feel. So overall, I'm happy with the result!
  11. From the album: The Character Corner (Color!)

    Wow this took some time, I haven't drawn a wolf in years. Anyhoo, This is my yokai character with her shapeshifting/glamour off. She has a more G rated form that she's gotten by in but I'll link that another time.

    From the album: OC Art

    Do the colors look familiar? They should! I had originally written Kamikakushi no Shinrin, my Yokai wolf pupper, to be more akin to an isolated spirit that random travelers met when passing through his forest. Originally, he was even too prideful to use a disguise and remained in his true form all the time. But as we all know, WoE is a social area, so unless I planned very specific threads with very specific characters, there really was no point in having an isolated character who always hid himself from others. So, I did some brainstorming and decided I needed to change some details, while Dio gave me an idea as to what those exact details might be. Thus came about this pony disguise of Kakushi's, an attractive stallion who's become so renowned in the modeling world that he can simply waltz into a studio and model for a bit then walk back out. No one knows how to get in contact with him, but he's always able to take whatever job he wants whenever he deigns to show up. Because of the wolf cutie mark the disguise has, said disguise has gotten himself known as... *drumroll* Ōkami. *regrets nothing!*

    Dat preview picture tho... Newest OC, an Okami Yokai by the name of Kamikakushi no Shinrin (who will probably start going by a nickname of some sort once he meets some ponies, but until then, Kamikakushi no Shinrin it is). Ever since the extended canon species thing started, I had the vague notion of apping a Kitsune. The idea died down quick enough, but randomly resurfaced with a vengeance the other day, and had morphed into an idea for an Okami. I like foxes, but wolves even more so, which is how I began a sketch that eventually morphed into this. I also wanted to give him a look that wasn't completely wolf, since Yokai are not really animals, so I ended up drawing some inspiration from the Pokemon Suicune and Okami (the video game) for his design. Also kinda realized late that Kamikakushi no Shinrin's tail colors are eerily reminiscent of Yin's, at least the highlighted sections...BUT by the time I realized, it was too late. Ah well, still happy with the way he turned out!

    Ahahaha you thought I was done well guess what I'll never be done Ahem. Another Okami picture featuring Ryuichi's brother Ishi, the newly made Ōmetsuke of Neighpon. I know, the angle is a bit wonky - it's like, stuck halfway between a front view and a side view - but overall I like how this one came out. I tried to make him a bit pudgier looking than the way I usually draw ponies because the character leans more towards the heavy side, but I don't know if that came across. Still - YAY OKAMI.

    Been having a lot of fun with these Okami drawings again, but I wasn't sure what character to draw next. I do have two other dragon ponies to draw, but neither of them are prominent enough for me to really have a desire to Okami-fy them. So, I wafted a bit, until I got a request to see Prince Blueblood from the show in this style. I thusly present to you said Prince, in all his magnificent, rose-tinted, sparkling visage, with the rose petals dancing in the wind behind him. Such sparkle, much wow. This was actually a really easy one to do, I sketched and finished it in like...an hour? Maybe not even an hour. It's always a chore trying to keep the overall look and "feel" of a hair style when it's billowing and waving in the wind, but I think I managed a pretty good job in this one!

    Yay, more Okami pictures with more eastern-themed characters. The hair kind of came out wonky on this one, but I decided to just leave be. When Mei lets her hair down, it falls in a straight line, so it's kind of hard to draw it billowing in the wind with the twisty brush I use for the mane and tail. Still, I like it better than my first attempt. I had initially planned to draw Mei with her hair done up and wearing an Empress' crown, because or her tendency to daydream she's an empress and such - but then I figured an Okami picture should be true to the character themselves, rather than what that particular character wishes they were, if that makes sense. It should be a picture solely of Mei, not a picture of what Mei wishes she were like. But that's all hooplah. The important thing is Ooookaaaamiii!
  17. From the album: OC Art

    Woooooah now. Been a long while since I uploaded one of these. But I figured, seeing how the art style is Japanese in origin, that I needed to draw at least one of my eastern characters in the style, and I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with the result. For anyone not familiar with the series, I drew a bunch of cast characters in the style of the Okami games a while ago, trying to mimic an ink and paint feel. I still haven't really figured out how to do that with solid lines (still searching for a good "ink" brush) but the hair usually turns out great thanks to a really neat brush I found that twists and bends around on itself. In this instance, I chose Ryuichi as my test subject because Neighpon and Shogun, but I had a lot of fun with this. I might try drawing my other eastern-themed characters in this style, because playing around with that twisty brush is just too much fun not to use it again and again and again!

    Been wanting to try my hand at an Okami-style drawing for a long time now, and finally got around to it. Of course I needed to draw a character with long, flowing hair so I could cover up a myriad of mistakes, and that decision turned into this. Not too bad for a first attempt I think, especially when trying to replicate a unique art style. Need to work on the body outlining, it's too thick and doesn't taper enough in areas. Still, I like it. Celestia © Hasbro

    This one came out better than the Luna one - the different hair colors really help layer themselves, despite Cadence's hair not being as free-flowing as the other two. Also opted not to give her the swirly shoulder things, since I think it gives her a younger look. Cadence © Hasbro

    Here is the actual fourth Okami drawing. Pretty obvious who the subject was going to be, though I still maintain that Prince Inkbrand is still the true 'Fourth' (for completely objective reasons, of course). I like how most of this one came out, even if I'm still iffy on the face. Frontal perspective for ponies has never been my strong point, but I wanted to try something different from the other three. Overall, I think it turned out pretty well. Twilight Sparkle © Hasbro

    M'not even trying to make a funny. Seriously, this one was difficult. Partly because of Discord's unique shape/colors, mostly because I couldn't figure out what to do to the picture other than just drawing the character. Got carried away with the background, so it doesn't really look 'Okami', more like a random gallery upload. On the plus side, I'm seriously having way too much fun with these Okami drawings, so much so that I'm neglecting RPs a bit. There's still a bunch more I want to draw, too. Discord © Hasbro

    Yet another character I've never drawn, because I don't really draw cast characters, ever. But I like how she turned out, even if I couldn't really get a good 'bouncing' pose going. Her hair is as wild as Rarity's, but it was a lot of fun to draw! Pinkie Pie © Hasbro

    Mmm... Mixed feelings about how this one turned out, but, happy that I tried something new and different for myself. The rainbow color schemes, from her mane/tail and the trail she's leaving behind, all sort of melded together. I have to say, as much as I tend to dislike rainbow color schemes on ponies, the mane and tail were fun to draw. Rainbow Dash © Hasbro
