    Ever since ancient times, the high priest of Amun, Amenemhet, has watched over the Amulet of Divine Power. The amulet (which takes the shape of an Ankh, the symbol of life) bestows its wearer with the powers of Amun himself and transforms them into their ideal form, so they can better fight back the forces of evil. For over 4000 years Amenemhet has guarded and passed down the amulet, granting it to one whom is deemed worthy. The current wearer of the amulet is Kiera Mccarthy. She met Amenemhet when she was still living as a man, but was transformed into her ideal female self upon wearing the amulet. Never having chosen a female champion before, Amenemhet gave her the name of Amunet, after Amun’s female counterpart. However, the amulet cannot be used indefinately, it has a limited amount of power and has to recharge after a certain length of use. The plus side for Kiera is that, after each use, she transforms back to find her normal self becoming slightly more female. She just has to make sure that she can survive the wrath of Suetekh long enough to complete her transition.

    Born with metallic skin, Chelsea Hyde is essentially invulnerable. Her skin can’t be scratched or pierced, though it can be dented (however, it takes an enormous amount of force to do so, in everyday life nothing short of a car crash could hurt her). However, despite her superpowers, Chelsea just wants to live a normal life, well, as normal as a girl with metal skin can live anyway. Problem is, superhero stuff just seems to keep happening around her.

    Also, I’ve done a few variations of this character. If people could let me know which one they prefer, that’d be great. Cheers.

    A legendary hunter of the supernatural around 200 years ago, at a time when a great scourge of creatures plagued humanity, Evangaline Gascoigne was the innovator of many hunting techniques still used to this day. The first woman to earn recognition for her hunting prowess, she forced her peers to respect her skill, even in a time when women joining hunts was not just frowned upon but actively laughed at. Her ferocity when hunting made her feared, even by her compatriots, and she refused to give up hunting even after she lost use of her left arm from a particularly vicious fight with a beast. However, it is not just her skill and temprement that made Evangaline a legend. Much like all good legends, there is a mystery. Evangaline Gascoigne disappeared one night , when out on a hunt. Nobody knows what happened to her. Some speculate that she finally met her match, but the fact that the scourge died down after her disappearance led others to say that she found out where the beasts where coming from and is still there, holding back the tide.

    Anyway, moving away from Lili and Danni stuff and back to the SRC.

    Last year I posted this character (who you can find on page 121 of my gallery) as a secondary character for the SRC. Well, as I’ve revamped the SRC since then, I thought I’d revamp her as well (well, revamp her beast form, because I wasn’t all that happy with it, her human form didn’t need any changes, other than a costume update). I thought I’d also take the chance to introduce her younger siblings as well, as I mentioned her family (most notably her brother, pictured here) in passing last time out.

    Cameron Harvey

    Keegan Harvey

    Rowan Harvey

    The Harvey family are known for their shapeshifting ability. Each member of the Harvey family is able to take on some of animalian alternate form (known as a anima), each family members form being unique to them, only sharing certain noticable simularities, which include their horns, white fur and blue eyes (the later of which carry over from their human forms and their hair is white in human form also). It is unknown how her family gained their unusual ability, but family lore claims that the ability stretches back over 10 generations, possibly further, meaning that if the ability isn’t natural, it is most likely down to magic. What we do know is that when in their anima form, their strength, reflexes, endurance, speed and senses are increased in accordance to the abilities of the animals that their anima has traits of (so an anima with traits of a bull would have greater strength than an anima with traits of a wolf, for example), whilst also gaining a notable resistance to magic (making the magic origin theory more plausable). It is also interesting that, without fail, the female members of the family always have larger anima than the male members and, in fact, the family does tend to have mainly female children (whether this is connected to their abilites or is an entirely unconnected coincidence is another unknown).

    The family are generally neutral, prefering to keep to themselves and stay out of trouble. Some of the younger generations have been known to get noticed by authorities however, especially the children of Landon Harvey. This trio consists of the eldest; Cameron (whose anima takes on traits of a bear and a wolverine), Keegan (whose anima is primate-like in many of its traits), the middle child, and the youngest; Rowan (whose anima has many traits of various big cats, most notably a lion). Cameron and Keegan always had a typical brother-sister relationship, they would annoy each other, get into fights, be ultra competitive, you know, sibling stuff. Keegan has always been self-concious that his anima is smaller than either of his sisters (even though this is true for any male member of the family) and Cameron doesn’t ever let an opportunity pass to remind him of the fact. Keegan often tries to make up for his self-percieved shortcomings by being reckless (he has transformed whilst drunk before, which will invariably cause a panic if he does it in public), an it’s often down to his sisters to reign him in. Rowan never gets involved in her siblings squabbling and usually puts an end to things if they both get too out of hand (despite being the youngest, Rowan has the largest anima of the three and is almost as strong as Cameron and quicker than either).

    I mean, why not right?

    Not particularly happy with the squat lift one, her legs are way too big and she doesn’t look entirely balanced right, but I was trying something different, can’t expect it to work out perfectly every time.

    Well, I mentioned her in Trinity’s bio, so here she is, Trinity’s younger sister Maisie. As mentioned previously, Maisie is hard of hearing, for all intents and purposes she is deaf. Though she does have hearing aids that help her, she will never be able to hear in the same way that someone with normally functioning ears would. But moving past that, Maisie is an incredibly upbeat person, she is very genuine and wears her heart on her sleeve most of the time. It’s very easy to tell how Maisie is feeling, she doesn’t hide her emotions very well at all, but she’s also very good at telling how other people are feeling and if people are lying. Because she can’t hear peoples voices, she picks up non-verbal cues much quicker than most other people. She can also speak in sign language at approximately a million miles an hour, even Trinity has trouble keeping up with her sometimes, which doesn’t help if Trinity is having to translate for someone who can’t read sign language.
    Also, Maisie has, let’s say, dubious fashion sense. When Trinity first started to transition, she went out shopping with Maisie to get some more feminine clothes. As one might expect, Maisie’s choices were appauling and didn’t get picked at all.

    Yeah, I dunno either. Just felt fancy. Turns out doing a dress for a character in a wheelchair is a pain in the ass. That’s the main take away from this.

    Also, which costume do people prefer for each character? I’m pretty sure of which I prefer on one character (Sarah in a suit tho…. I mean, it just looks good), but the others it’s a toss up really.

    You know how I mentioned that the girls play D&D. Yeah, that idea got way too stuck in my head for this not to happen. So, these are the characters they all tend to play (also, this is going to be the only time I’m ever going to portray Lauren standing, because this is obviously a fantasy setting within the canon). Lili plays an Elf Ranger, Danni plays a Human Cleric (she had absolutely no idea what she was doing when creating her character, so Lili and Trinity essentially made the character for her), Sarah plays a Human Paladin, Lauren plays a half-elf bard (and is the player most likely to try and ruin the game for the DM) and Trinity usually DM’s (otherwise it’s Lili) but when she doesn’t she plays a Tiefling Sorcerer. Lili was also the one who designed the characters costumes.

    Note: I had to custom build so much for this. Lili’s quiver, Danni’s shield, Sarah’s sword (I’m pretty proud of that one) and the clasps on Trinity’s top (which took ages), plus getting Lili to hold the bow right was a pain.
    Oh and in case it wasn’t obvious, I don’t know the first thing about D&D, never played it, so I just went onto the D&D guide and read enough to roughly guess what would make sense. If I ever get round to doing more Lili and Danni stories, lose my mind and decide to write one of these games as a story I’m gonna need a LOT of help.

    Name: Trinity Foster
    Birthday: 28th June
    Height: 5.7ft/ 1.73m
    Occupation: Contracts and Rights Assistant (Literary Publishing)
    Personality: Shy, Reserved, Inquisitive, Mainly Chill But Very Passionate About Things That Are Important To Her
    Likes: Fantasy & Sci-Fi, Reading, Video Games, Drawing, Heavy Music (Metal/Goth/Emo/Hardcore)
    Dislikes: Really Sweet Food, Horror Movies, Bigots (obvs)

    Extra Facts:
    -Trinity is really, really into Fantasy. Books, games, films, you name it, if it’s fantasy, she likes it. Her favourite games of all time are Skyrim and the Dark Souls series (yes, even DS2), and she is a big Tolkien nerd. She also loves DnD. She even managed to get Lili and Lauren into it, then one thing led to another, Danni and Sarah got dragged in (in Danni’s case literally. I don’t think any of the girls could drag Sarah if they tried) and now Trinity hoasts a DnD evening every Thursday at her house.
    -Trinity has a younger sister called Maisie, who is deaf. As such, Trinity learnt sign language from a very young age. She is very close with her sister and Maisie was actually the first person Trinity came out to. It was only through Maisie’s support that Trinity found the strength to come out to her parents and Maisie was excellent emotional support throughout Trinity’s transition.
    -Trinity used to be in a band in school. They were a metal band and she was the singer. Unfortunately, they didn’t get far, their style of music wasn’t exactly very popular around the school and Trinity never felt comfotable performing in front of all of the teachers and students, because she was afraid people would laugh at her. She looks back on this period of her life with some embaressment now, both because it was before she tranistioned and because, well, they were pretty rubbish.

    Name: Lauren Keiler
    Birthday: April 7th
    Height: 5.4ft/ 1.67m (Standing)
    Occupation: Wheelchair Sports Instructor
    Personality: Optimistic, Honest, Open To New Experiances, Compassionate, Good Listener, Patient
    Likes: Being Active, Dancing, Anime/Manga, Trying New Things, Sushi, Chinese Food
    Dislikes: Close-Minded People, Places With No Wheelchair Access, Having Her Legs Touched

    Extra Facts:
    -Lauren was left wheelchair bound after she was hit by a drunk driver on her 19th birthday. The crash left her with damage to her L1-L5 vertebrae as well as a severely fractured pelvis and varying levels of temporary and permenant damage done to her legs. She isn’t paralyzed, but her lower body motor functions are highly impared. She could technically walk, with the aid of crutches and with someone around to help her, but the amount of effort she has to go through to make even a couple of steps makes a wheelchair her prefered way of getting around. The accident also left her dealing with a nasty bout of depression which she only really started to overcome when she discovered wheelchair sports and her current job.
    -Lauren, being a massive weeb, loves going to anime and gaming conventions. She goes to any she can get time off to go to (sometimes she’ll take one of the other girls too, if they aren’t busy). She has always wanted to go to a convention in cosplay, but buying costumes is expensive (especially when you’re going to conventions on her salary) and she cannot sew to save her life, so making her own costumes is out of the question.
    -Lauren is bi and actually kinda has a crush on Sarah. She realised this when she lived with Sarah. Because the house didn’t have a ground floor bedroom, Sarah would sometimes carry Lauren up the stairs. At first Lauren was a bit uncomfortable and a little resentful having someone else assist her in doing something so trivial, but those feelings were soon replaced by  confusion of how much she was enjoying the experiance. After a while, she stopped fighting it althogether, but Sarah, being Sarah, never noticed.

    Name: Sarah Williams
    Birthday: June 7th
    Height: 6.3ft/ 1.92m
    Occupation: Fitness Instructor/ Personal Trainer
    Personality: Cheerful, Outgoing, Confident, Motivated, Stubborn, Assertive
    Likes: Working Out, Dogs, Punk Rock, Action Movies, Cold Weather
    Dislikes: Bugs, Unsolicited Remarks About Her Body, Will Ferrell movies, Hot Weather

    Extra Facts:
    -Sarah was the one who introduced Lili and Danni. She has been Danni’s friend since childhood (their mothers where old school friends) and she met and became friends with Lili at uni (through Sarah’s then boyfriend).
    -Sarah has an unfortunate habit of saying the first thing that comes to her mind sometimes. Normal it isn’t a problem, but she has an unfortunate habit of doing it at the worst possible time. For example, when she first found out that Trinity was trans the first thing she did was ask if she still had a penis. She has yet to live that one down (though, at least, Trinity did forgive her).
    -Lili made the very stupid mistake of hiring Sarah as her personal trainer. As good of friends as they may be, when it comes to work, Sarah is a hard taskmaster. Problem is, because they’re friends, Sarah knows all of Lili’s bad habits which means Lili can’t get away with anything. At least the training is showing results, although Lili isn’t planning on going quite as far as Sarah with the whole “getting in shape” thing.

    So, since I’ve redesigned Lili, Danni and Sarah, I thought I’d add Lauren in, make a new character and throw them all in to a group shot so we can compare heights and all that jazz. Also, as Sarah and Lauren aren’t that well developed compared to Lili and Danni (who, in fairness, are my most developed characters) and we have a new character to introduce, I thought I’d do 5 facts for each of the non-Lili/Danni girls. There might also be an extra bonus fact for one of the girls hidden in the picture for you to find. I’ll be interested to see if anyone does get it.

    Anyway, Facts:

    Sarah Williams

    -Sarah is very awkward when it comes to public displays of affection. For someone so outgoing and confident, she can be very easily flustered by romantic gestures and flirting especially, even when it’s not serious or done in a joking fashion. Lili is especially good at getting under Sarah’s skin like this, she knows exactly what pushes her buttons. It even got so far as Lili kissing Sarah once (it was a bet), which ended with Lili on the floor with the force of Sarah pushing her away.

    -Sarah is really into crossfit. She works out every day, on top of her job as a personal trainer, and makes absolutely sure that she eats as healthy possible. She also practices Tae Kwon Do and is a black belt in Judo. As one might expect, her size and lifestyle have earned her the affectionate nickname of “She-Hulk” from the rest of the girls.

    -Sarah is actually one of the shorter members of her family. Her father is 6 foot 5 and her brother is even taller. Only her mother is under 6 foot tall and even then, she’s only a couple of inches under. Sarah used to find her height a hinderance, she got picked on as a kid for being lanky and at uni she would find it hard to find guys who weren’t intimidated by her height. But since she started getting more into working out, she’s leaned into it. Being big and buff really scares off more annoying guys.

    -Sarah used to surf when she was a teenager. However, when she moved away to uni she found she had less time to do so anymore (plus a lack of anywhere to surf was a big problem). She has tried to get back into it every so often, but more recent interests tend to take precedent.

    -Sarah loves dogs, especially big dogs. She has a German Shepard called Roman and she spoils him rotten. He’s a big mummies boy and loves his cuddles. He also adores Danni and whenever she’s round he will snuggle up to her on the sofa and rest his head on her lap for her to fuss him. He does have a habit of charging at people and almost tackling them to the ground when he’s happy to see them, which always seems to be a problem for Danni, because Roman can legitimately knock her over, and Lauren has caught a few accidental headbutts as well.

    Lauren Keiler

    -Lauren can speak fluent French. Her Grandmother (mother’s mother) was originally from Lille and fled France with her parents when the Germans invaded in 1940. All of the family on that side speak French and family holidays were often taken in various parts of France.

    -Before the accident that led to her being in a wheelchair, Lauren used to love to dance. She did ballet as a child and learned many different types of classical and contemporary dance styles in specialist dance classes growing up. Since her accident, she learned how to do wheelchair dancing and helps run a local group specialising in wheelchair based physical activities such as sports and dance. She did also once try to take up Wheelchair Freestyle (doing tircks on skate ramps in a wheelchair), but that ended with her in the hospital and a hard ban on her ever trying again from pretty much everyone in her life.

    -Lauren is a total weeb. She loves anime, collects manga, she’s trying to teach herself Japanese (she isn’t as successful at it as with French, possibly because she doesn’t have too many people to practice with). She even once wrote a short story where a totally-not-a-self-insert-character girl in a wheelchair gained magical powers from a mystical samurai ghost and fought all kinds of demons. It wasn’t very good.

    -When Lauren moved out of her parents house, she managed to find a perfect rental property close to her work that was wheelchair accessable. She couldn’t believe her luck. And then, after a year, the landlord decided to sell and gave Lauren 2 months (the minimum amount of time legally allowed) to get out. Unable to find a new house sutible, Lauren was looking at either moving back in with her parents miles away from her work and having to give up her job, or living on the streets. However, Sarah offered to put her up at her house until she managed to get her situation sorted. Lauren has taken it upon herself to try and find some act of kindness of comparable size to pay Sarah back, which Sarah just greats with amused bemusement.

    -It takes a lot to make Lauren angry, she has a very even temper and a positive disposition. But when she gets angry, keep back, she’s vicious. Also, she really doesn’t like having her legs touched. The easiest way to get Lauren pissed is to touch her legs. Don’t do it if you value your life. Even Roman knows not to jump onto Laurens lap, he just sits next to her wheelchair like a good boy.

    Trinity Foster

    -Trinity is trans and started to transition as soon as she hit 16. She’s been living as a woman for 10 years now and lots of her friends don’t even know she is trans. Of course, it was hard for her to come out to her parents, they did have a bit of a hard time accepting it (her Dad more-so than her Mum), but they are supportive of her at least.

    -Trinity is an artist and she met Lili online when Lili retweeted a fan-art Trinity had done of a video game. One thing led to another and they got talking, bonding over their shared love of video games and their simular music tastes. When they realised they lived not too far appart, a meet up had to happen and the rest is history.

    -Trinity can do screamo vocals. She doesn’t show it off much because a) it’s really awkward to do in public without music and b) it makes her kinda self-conscious doing something that she associates with sounding masculine (even though she really doesn’t sound masculine at all when she does scream). Of course, Lili absolutely loves it and is constantly encouraging Trinity to work on her vocals.

    -Trinity chose her name because she was a big fan of the Matrix films when she was younger. She’s kinda embarressed by that fact now.

    -Trinity, up until recently, worked at a publishing house, working in the copyright department. However, she was quietly let go a few days after making a formal complaint (and an informal tweet) about one of the publishers biggest selling writers transphobic tweets.

    I actually got something done for Pride month. Woop.

    So, if I’d planned, I’d have posted my PRIDE redesigns this month, but I did them early and then didn’t have anything else to post, so they went up early. Then I had planned a special commission for this Pride month, but I wanted a specific person to do it and they weren’t available, so that was out (though, hopefully, that is still in the pipeline. Also, speaking of which, if you want to see any of the art I’ve previously commissioned, check out my Deviantart Page (same username). I tend not to post it here because it isn’t Heromachine stuff). So instead, I went back to a very old and well trodden path.

    Also, people may have notice that some rather major reversions have happened, alongside some more sublte changes. Yup, I got rid of pretty much all of Lili’s tattoos. As much as I loved the floral sleeve, it was too unweildy if I was going to do any poses that didn’t involve Lili having her arm in one position and one position only. So I reverted back to original Lili (including hair) and changed her original tattoo to something that didn’t involve any work beyond one thing being masked.

    As for the more subtle changes, well, both girls now have unique body shapes. Lili has a much shallower waist without being super thin and I’ve changed up Danni’s stomach area and done a little trick on her legs and hips to give her a much fuller figure (not that you can really tell all that much after costumes have been added, but oh well). Also, another reason for the changes/ simplification is that, well, these guys might be another thing I look at getting a commission done for and I know from the last time I got these guys done that Lili’s sleeve is no bueno. I can’t believe Cat didn’t kill me for making her draw all those freaking flowers.

    Oh, and I put Danni in the wash on too high a setting and she shrunk….
    Yeah, I adjusted their heights, Lili’s now probably around 5’11 to 6’1 and Danni is between 5’3 to 5’5. Dunno why, I just think the size difference is cute I guess.

    Ok, considering this thread has become somewhat of a magnet for spam bots, I’m going to lock it. The thread will still be accessable to read, but nobody will be able to reply.
