Character Design Contest ♯114- On The Rogue Again

For our penultimate Fantasy RPG class, we're going to be focusing on rogues. For anyone who doesn't know what that entails, you're basically looking at the sneaky characters. Thieves, assassins, ninjas are all fair game here, anyone who uses stealth and speed over raw power classifies. However, we're not looking at people who would be best suited to laying traps or dealing long range damage, that's for next week, you want to be as up close and personal, preferably without being noticed in the process. Bonus points go to anyone who can get onto the poll without me noticing. 😉

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

  1. Entry #1
    Satyr Ninja
    Heh I just recently did this for my own entertainment.
    This is a redo of one of my earliest HM3s.
    But since Rogues includes Ninjas, I thought I would enter it.
    The satyr leg pose had brought to mind a marital artist, so I made one into a ninja.
    My friend John, thought it was one of the goofiest things he’s seen, but I countered with, if 4 pizza munching ooze mutated teenage turtles named after classical artists can be ninjas, why not a satyr?

    Entry #2
    “Spider”

    Born in the slums to Erica Nyde an alcoholic unwed prostitute, she named her son Erik Nyde.

    It;s been said that Erica was bit by the spiders in her two room shake, which is what gave Erik his resistance to spider venom.

    Erik learned at a very early age to move silently, hide, climb, jump and set traps watching the spiders in their two room shake while his mother plied her profession in the next room at night.

    Erik wears a gold spider necklace which was the first thing he ever stole, of a non food nature, which coupled with his sneakiness and “sticky fingers” ended up giving him his nickname “Spider” among the city residents and his victims.

    He wears a black mask resembling a spider, a black body suit and spider silk rope around his waist, wrists and legs.

    He has Slippers of Spider Climbing and a Dagger of Venom, the blade is etched with a spider, and the hilt is capped with a round red crystal vial which holds deadly venom which can be unscrewed and refilled.

    He was recruited by the spider-centric druid recluse Loxo Celes and joined his band along with Aranea the Spider Mage and Taren Tula the Araknight as they fought Loth’s minions lead by Nidia, the 6 armed priestess of Loth, in a cavernous cave complex deep in the web thick woods not far from the farming/textile village Weaver’s Way

    Entry #3
    Slyfox
    Slyfox is a Sylvan Elf theif turned vampire hunter through circumstances.
    His original parents were killed by a giant lynx and the child was raised by a Cooshie for several years. The village found him and named him Two Paws, since he was more canine than Elf.
    He lived and slept with the village dogs, although one night he was found in the arms of a Drow.
    Two Paws was banished. They used a Forget spell on him to make him forget his past, Hypnosis to make him believe his family and village was killed by a green dragon and polymorphed to look different to keep him from ever realizing who he really was and giving him the new name Swiftfox to match his red hair and quickness.
    Not realizing the life he now knew was a lie, he lived a happy carefree nieve existence.
    On the road he called himself Slyfox.
    His eventual companions consisted of
    Aierendriel a Slyph Mage,
    Alyssa a High Elf Cleric, Jaxx a Sylvan Elf Fighter vampire slayer with lacanthrapy, Slate a Human Cavalier wearing black armor trimmed in red weilding his father’s unholy defender. and Avi Darkstar a homo magi.
    Jaxx called Slyfox “Brother” and Avi called him “Puppy” due to his large expressive eyes and innocent nature and his tendency to follow Avi around like the loyal lovesick pup he was.
    The party ran across various undead and made it their job to eradicate them.

    (I won’t be posting as many as the Clerics, but still have a couple more to do)

  2. Well here are two of my most recent pics, Kemuri and Unsanmushou, ninjas from the Leauge of Shadows.
    Kemuri:

    I may have one more up my sleeve, we’ll see, if it’ll come out again.

  3. Right, this is maybe a bit more my speed.

    As usual I’m focusing on character design/ideas rather than flashy effects/poses so keep in mind they’re more that than that full on scenes/set pieces.

    Entry #1: Naziha Jezmina Drew

    http://i.imgur.com/uXsiqqp.png

    Royal guard, bounty hunter, detective, crime fighting ninja… a woman of many talents and many mysteries, who roams the streets in night in search of those in need, or those who’d harm the Amira she’s been charged to protect. Is also secretly a giant spider. The swords she wield have a special “venom”; a shock blast that can paralyse people.

    Her design is influenced by Jessica Drew/Spiderwoman – a similar colour scheme, but I gave it more earthy tones. Her outfit is based on some old Saudi Arabian traditional dress; some of which had that slightly more diagonal/asymmetrical look. I didn’t go overboard with patterns, so it could keep a bit more of a superhero/ninja-ish look(of course when she’s being an actual ninja she’d wear darker colours) though I thought the Spider-web print headscarf/hijab was a nice touch. I haven’t seen many muslim/middle eastern characters so I thought it would nice to enter her!

    I did a little bit of touching up for the competition as I’d been meaning to do it for a while(her arms were exposed in the previous version and I wanted to give her full hijab, it looks better this way I think).

  4. Entry #2: Penelope Dreadful

    http://i.imgur.com/7FlBKzJ.jpg

    Penny is a half-succubus who was magically engineered to become a master Thief & Assassin. Not only is she a shapeshifter; but she also can teleport from almost anywhere to almost anywhere, skipping through the edges of the far realms using a mystical music box attuned to her natural abilities. She receives her instructions from a mechanical doll she carries with her, often telling her which artefact to steal next, or who to kill and can be hired for a steep price, if you can find her.

    Currently being deprogrammed and starring in my Nine Tales University fics, where she looks a bit more like this:

    Think the personalities of Wednesday Addams, and Helena from Orphan Black(when she loses control), with the skillset of HG Wells from Warehouse 13. Now she’s in therapy, she’s more teen April Ludgate which the occasional unstable episode…

  5. What happens when you mix a Wraith with an Assassin? This.
    http://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Dark-Duelist.jpg

  9. Fae Insurgent

    The peasants blame the Fae for bad crops and call unruly children changelings. The nobles scorn their folklore and superstition. But the castle guards know there is no shame in drawing one’s blade at long shadows, cast by flames buffeted in the night gusts funneled down the stone corridors. For, if you wait to see the torchlight gleaming off of ivory hair and opaque eyes; you have already failed to register the prick of the needle and the eldritch poison coursing through your veins has already rendered you incapable of raising the alarm.

    Just your run-of-the-mill master ninja.

  11. Hawk, a picture of a “Run of the Mill” Master Ninja is kind of like the old picture of “Two Navajo Scouts in the Desert”! {Sand, Cacti, a few rocks… you don’t see either of the Navajo!} 😉

  12. I thought I had a chance until AMS showed up. I think you’re going to win. 😛

  13. Ubiquitous Pixel

    I was going to make something…then I looked at Skoul’s first entry and then ams…now I am looking out a window thinking what on earth could I do to make something worth being thrown into the ring with those characters…

  14. You’ll never see, hear, feel him coming until his fists knock you out and /or his knife cuts through you.

  15. @Ubiquitous Pixel

    That’s how I ALWAYS feel. I just enter these contests for the the fun of it, not to win. 🙂

  16. Thomas Martin

    Nobody knows just why the Empress gave Arthur Ballentyne an estate on the shore of Crescent Lake, or why she created the office of Imperial Dancing Master for him. Some speculate that they are lovers, others that he blackmailed the Empress. His dancing skills, while very good, aren’t good enough to warrant a title and lands. Neither are his sometimes lengthy absences from court, nor are his highly serviceable weapons in keeping with a glorified dancing instructor. In truth, the title is a cover. Arthur Ballentyne is whatever the Empress needs him to be. He has spied on members of the court and foreign powers alike, stolen documents, hunted for artifacts at the edge of the world, killed men and women, and brought back other people for justice. The loyalty Arthur bears for his Empress is boundless and simple. She is the one who puts bread on his table, she is the only one who cares if he lives or dies. He would fight the reaper for her, he would let the world burn to keep her warm. And he would do it all with a smile.

    As always any feedback on the art or story is appreciated. Thank you.

  17. So many great entries.
    But I’m still entering, I had a lot of fun creating these 3 characters:

    A futuristic elf rogue:

    That’s how I ALWAYS feel. I just enter these contests for the the fun of it, not to win.

    Yeah I hear ya! My creative neurons are firing away and brewing up a ninja that will slice and dice his way to the ranks of honorable mentions at least!

  19. Entry # 6
    Thumper
    is an Elven Theif/Scout and Messenger.

    After many years of adventuring with the orange mohawked Giant Slayer Dwarf “Savage Sam The Dwarf I Am” Thumper ended up mated to Savage Sam and thanks to a mishap with a Girdle of Masculinity/Femininity Thumper eventually became pregnant.
    During their travels Thumper discovered a scroll with Remove Curse. However he didn’t want to abort his and Savage Sam’s baby, so he stashed it for later.
    Eventurally Thumper gave birth to their child a Dwarf/Elf, a Dwelf, they named Flint.
    Almost immediately after Thumper used the saved Remove Curse scroll, got the magic girdle off and slapped it onto Savage Sam The Dwarf I Am so Sam could nurse Flint
    (Warhammer Fantasy)

  20. @skoul
    Kemuri and Unsanmushou, ninjas from the Leauge of Shadows are both very cool and classic looking.

    @Roseweave
    Entry #1: Naziha Jezmina Drew
    Very nice costume and a lovely face. She definately has an ethnic look to her. Kewl for using Jessica as some of your inspiration. Kewl on the dark moon too.

    @Roguejakx52
    The unknown Assassin
    I like the face and those are some wicked blade. Is it just me or does the red symbol look like a styalized antelope? Kewl regardless.

    @Roseweave
    Entry #2: Penelope Dreadful
    I am all over this name, I just love it!
    And the character is wonderful as well. I mean a theif/assassing who can shapeshift and teleport, There is no stopping her. And having an obvious Wednesday Addams influence, I mean come on what’s not to love?

    @hawk007
    Dark Duelist
    Being a AD&D 1st & 2nd Edition guy, I’m not familur wiht the class of Dark Duelist, but it sounds kewl.
    and very kewl fading effect, not to mention the red eyes and very slight light gray highlights on the black. I almost missed it with my eyesight, till I clicked and seen the bigger version.

    @Fae Insurgent
    She looks lovely from what I can tell.
    But with my eyesight she’s a shade too dark. heh heh.

    @hawk007
    Xadrill reminds me of a mindless automaton slayer. Not someone I would enjoy meeting, I’m sure.

    @ams
    ROGUE NINJA
    I always love seeing your work. Talk about raising the bar! She really is exquisite.

    @hawk007
    You have a good chance of making it, you pic is very good too.

    @Ubiquitous Pixel
    Go ahead and post! I admit it’s great to win, but its also just great to share your creativity concepts and execution of it.

    @Madpac
    Rogue
    Very kewl nice and simple, but then you don’t need a lot to blend in and kill things right?

    @Sabrina
    So girl where is your entry? Come on!

    @Thomas Martin
    Arthur Good background, leaves ya hungry for the answers to the question of if they are lovers or not.
    And with looks like that, why wouldn’t they be? 😀

    @AlexanPT
    Good work and you don’t need backgrounds, it’s just fun.
    My favorite is your 3rd one from his headrag to his armored boot tops.

    @Ubiquitous Pixel
    Dominus is not only great costuming and shaded but great violent effect.

    @JR
    So a thief who is proficient with throwing blades should hold off till next weeks contest right?
    And I am gathering from some of the entries that we are not limited to mideval type fantasy but also cyberpunk, urban fantasy and current crime.

  21. ReL Thumper and Savage Sam!
    I found some game notes and journal entries from 2005 and I had mis-remembered something.
    Thumper had a dream that his god Rabbit told him he needed to father children .. then Savage Sam woke up saying he had a belly ache and felt pregnant.
    Then at some point in a dungeon Sam found a belt and put it on and changed gender.
    So it was Savage Sam that gave birth to Flint the Dwelf.
    then used the Remove Curse scroll and slapped the Girdle of Masculinity/Femininity on Thumper and told him to nurse the kid.
    Kind of important distinction there.

  22. @Cliff- Technically thieves are included in this weeks contest. For next week, I was thinking more archers when I said ranged weapons.

  23. Name: Reynard

    http://pre00.deviantart.net/a189/th/pre/f/2015/085/b/9/reynard_by_vadnik-d8n767e.jpg

    Reynard is the child of a vicious union between Fenrir and a ljósálfr queen. Disheartened that his son was cut off from the world, Loki arranged to take Fenrir’s place in captivity for 24 hours. Loki transformed into a wolf, and Fenrir into a man. However, Fenrir was still a beast on the inside, ever hungry, ever savage. He raged in sprees of violence with the berserkers and hunted beside giants. In the final hours of his freedom, Fenrir sneaked into the land of the Light Elves as the sun was setting. Entering the chamber of the Light Elf Queen, Fenrir used the dark to his advantaged and tricked her into believing he was the elven king. At midnight, the queen awoke to the howl of a wolf; the man beside her had vanished, and the deceit was discovered.

    Reynard is the child of this union, and his dual nature was apparent from birth. The queen knew she could not keep him and fostered him off to mortal parents. Reynard, named because of his peculiar, foxlike appearance, grew up in the cities and townships of Midgard. Keen on arts, music, and poetry, Reynard was equally defined by a vein of cruelty that would occasionally bubble up into spurts of ultra-violence. His skills in learning and the arts led him to become a courtier, teaching, entertaining, and advising member of the upper-class. This was only cover up for a more sinister role, that as royal assassin. Sporting a mask made from the skull of his first kill, Reynard is a fearsome enemy, who will sneak up like a ghost, and with a deceptively elegant swish of the blade, cuts down his patron’s enemies. But is the occasional hit enough to quell the anger in his blood? If the king lost his power over Reynard, or worse, if Reynard lost control of himself, who knows what disasters would ensue.

  25. Entry #7

    (I had wanted to do a lockpicker, and a theif scaling a wall, but my leg has been acting up and I need to keep it up. So this one my be my last entry for this contest)

    “Dartaleon”
    Davy Labouret

    the son of Alexander Labouret, a former General of the Calvery, and the current Captain of the Elite Guard the First Sons of the City
    all offspring of the City Council

    Marie Célette, Davy’s mother was a healer and apothacary, the daughter of Dumo, an innkeeper of The Watering Hole

    Alexander was a loving but stern father.

    Davy learned to
    Hear Noise
    Move Silently
    Hide In Shadows
    Find/Remove Traps
    Open Locks
    Climb Walls
    to sneak out at night

    Grigori was Davy’s childhood friend who lived next to the Watering Hole, which is how they met.

    Davy learned and excelled in playing darts with Grigori at his grandfather’s inn The Watering Hole

    this skill bled over into him learning and being proficient with all sorts of thrown objects including throwing knives

    New gang boss Victor Vittorio called “Victorious Vittorio” and “Vic Viscous” behind his back wanted to rule the city, coming from a place known for its conquerors, sent his
    gang of Lupus Nocte wolf masked members, after the City Guard

    City guards were attacked and eventually some were killed

    City guard cracked down on the gangs, particularly the Night Wolves.

    More City Guards were attacked and killed

    The elite First Sons were brought in
    and after some gang losses
    the Guards were ambushed by large numbers of the Lupus Nocte and a couple of the Guards were killed as were quite a few of the Wolves

    Capt Labouret redoubled efforts to stop the Lupus Nocte

    Vic Vicious decided to attack the Capt Labouret of the First Sons
    sending warnings to stop his persecution of the Lupus Nocte

    Marie Célette’s Mortar & Pestle apothecary shop was broke into and wrecked

    The Watering Hole pub set on fire by flaming arrow and was a total loss due to amount of flammable alcohol on the premises.
    Grigori was one of the one’s killed in the blaze. Alexander thought it best that is was thought that it was Davy that had been killed and he was hidden away.

    Marie Célette’s Mortar & Pestle apothacary shop was also set on fire

    Davy’s mother Marie Célette was attacked and kidnaped

    Marie Célette was eventually raped and killed

    Alexander renewed efforts
    letting his anger and desire for revenge to cloud his better judgement.

    Davy’s father Alexander was killed by Lupus Nocte archers

    and their house burned to ashes.

    Davy came out of hiding and pretended to be a young angry theif named Darteleon or Dart to join the Lupus Nocte gang.

    His skills earned him a quick membership.

    Dart worked within the Lupus Nocte for many months.

    Dart set up the Lupus Nocte members leaking plans to the First Sons when he could.

    After a year Dart became an important member of Lupus Nocte

    the new Captain of the First Sons wanted to rush things and tried to stage an attack

    he and 2 of the First Sons were killed.

    Dart eventually took revenge on the Vic Vicious entering his room as the man ate, pretending to have an important message and throwing three well places blades, one in Vic Vicious head/eye?, one in his throat, and one in his heart .

    Dart gave the signal and the First Sons swept in and
    apprehend the rest of the Lupus Nocte gang, although some escaped.

    Dart was offered the position of Captain of the First Sons

    but he refused it deciding to haunt the streets and alleys for scrambling vermin his own way and distribute his own brand of vengeance.

    (the proper spelling of Darteleon is in the background, the one in the link was a typo, but that’s what I unknowingly uploaded it as)

  26. Liselle: Scarlet Veil leader (aka Veiled Agents); assassin and spy by trade (works for a Chamberlain but dabbles in some counter intelligence when he’s not looking)

  27. Thanks so much for the kind words Cliff. I’ll check out your entries when I get the chance.

  28. I like Spider and the Satyr Ninja is a cool idea that worked out looking good. “Death” looks like it would make for a really good D&D miniature.

  29. Entry #8

    Metal (pronounced Mee Tahl)

    Metal was one of my earliest 1st Ed AD&D characters

    Metal is a bard and an Elven princess named Metal Wobnair du Quamon of the cresent Elven continant of Ehlspire.
    During her years of adventuring becoming a bard, she first went through Theif training, then Fighter (which is backwards from most) and finally actual Druidic Bard training.
    During that adventuring she also became known as the “prostitute princess” wearing her blue Elven silk blouse and pink Elven silk pants and high heel white boots and carrying a golden harp or sometimes a well crafted mandolin,
    But here she is during her beginning theif training, breaking into a rich merchants who’s been cheating people.

    Entry #9
    Promethekles in an ancient Greek theif, actually a burgeler.

    When the boy child was born to Kleitos a popular senetor and his wife Kallistrate, it was as if the child had stole the fire from the Gods in Olympus and warmed his parents heart with his smile. So they named him Promethekles “glory of Prometheus.”

    Even as a child Promethekles excelled in climbing, running, jumping and tumbling with his friends.

    Promethekles skills eventually included Hear Noise, Hide In Shadows and Move Silently as he regularly snuck out at night to get into mischeif with his friends.

    Even as a youth he was invited to his father’s drinking symposiums with other men of importance, so Kleitos could show him off. From these get togethers Promethekles learned and honed his skills of Ettiquette, Local History, Connesuir, and Appraisel.

    he grew up to be a handsome, muscular if somewhat rakish youth. His natural charm and good looks serving him well when it came to Charm and Seduction

    Impulsively curious to get into things he shouldn’t he grew to learn Find/Remove Traps and Open Locks, Rope Work and Appraisel

    Left to his own devices after his classes he has an extensive Area Knowledge of the city.

    It was at a symposium that he saw a particular dancing boy, which he became interested in. As he wanted to met the boy, Kleitos bought the slave boy for Promethekles much to his mixed horror and joy.
    That night the dancing boy Krimon became Promethekles personal attendant.
    Promethekles was nice to the beautiful boy showering him with expensive clothes and gifts. They boy had been taught well to serve his masters, once again making Promethekles feel guilty and yet happy. It wasn’t long before Promethekles treated Krimon as a lover and not a mere slave to take care of his every whim.
    Once Kleitos discovered his son was behaving as an equal to the dancer slave, Kleitos sold Krimon to a friend from the symposiums. Promethekles was heartbroken as well as furious with his father.

    Promethekles took his father to court saying the boy had been given to him then stolen away. However the jury quickly sided with Kleitos the father saying it was his right to save his son from himself keeping him from lowering his himself and his station with a slave.

    Promethekles started to take things from his father to sell to make money to buy back Krimon at twice his price, with plans to free him and run away together. He also started to break into Kleitos friend’s homes during busy hosted symposiums, to steal from them, knowing their residences well from various previuossymposiums they hosted and had invited young Promethekles.

    Prometekles not only did well, but he did very well.
    It was Krimon who first suggested Promethekles give money to a starving lame begger on the street.
    Soon, although it took longer to gain Krimon’s slave price, Promethekles, with Kriimon’s encouragement, began to give some of his money to the poor and starving who were worse off than many slaves of the weathy.

    Promethekles eventually did buy Krimon back and freed him, giving him a small fortune of his own.

    Promethekles is tall, with dark brown hair, and dark brown eyes, he has a handsome face and very toned body. He wears a toga, girdle, sandles and several bags of tools and empty bags for loot. They did set up residence together, but Promethekles kept burgeling the rich and giving to the poor.
