So this Summer, I have decided that I am going to work on a comic. Now, coming from a procrastinator like me, it probably seems hard to believe... But I need to work on something or I will rot away and .. rot. :c
Okay, so here's the deal.
Design a character to be in my upcoming comic <insert name here>. The character will be used as one of the main characters. There are two main characters in each clan. You can design one of these characters! The leaders of the clans are not main characters, you do not design them.
The peaceful world of Taerra, a place where all creatures co-existed, soon became shrouded in shadow, as unknown monsters started to attack the planet and the life that it held.
These vile creatures resembled demons, filled with hatred and despair. Their only means were to kill and torture the innocents of Taerra. As the massacre went on, the four clan leaders decided it was best to retreat, and save as many of Taerra's inhabitants as they could.
The survivors stowed away underground and high in the mountains, but feared the demons would soon reach them. But as their hopes lowered, help; in the form of a shining bird came to their calls. The light that came from its feathers tore apart the beasts of Hell, and left Taerra in peace once again.
Even though the massacre had stopped, the four clan leaders began to argue. They blamed each other for the corruption of the world and the sadness of their followers. As they continued to argue, they also began to fight. Soon, all four clans were at war with each other, and the massacre started all over again; but with the innocent fighting the innocent.
The Bird of the Light rose again, again to end the war. But this time all of the inhabitants of Taerra were killed with the Lightbringer's song.
Only eight; two of the Air clan, two of the Earth clan, two of the Fire clan and two of the Water clan, were left to survive.
With the planet dying, and no one to help them, the eight survivors must do what they can to protect Taerra from incoming demons, and find the four Shards of Light to bring the planet back together, and hopefully the innocent, too, that the Great Bird put to sleep.
The character can only be a feline or canine. Domestic dog or cat species are not allowed. You may use lineart as long as you credit the owner. Only one entry per Clan. You may enter a design for either the Water, Fire or Air clan (Earth is taken by moi).
Things you may like to know
The leader of the Air clan is the dragon, Azeru. He is a polite elder, who has lived for a long time.
The leader of the Fire clan is the lion, Kodiak. His firey personality and stubbornness fits his clan name perfectly.
The leader of the Water clan is the lioness, Latii. Her calm attitude towards others makes her seem very elegant and bold, even though she is fairly young.
The leader of the Earth clan is the wolf, Zane. Not many people are close to him, as he is not very open, but appears to be a strong leader.
