Empty Skies Part 2

A lot has changed already since last time. Here are the updates:

+ The story is finally fully understood in terms of the 'big picture' (See Paragraph for Synopsis)

+ The Game Mechanics are understood in terms of the 'big picture'

+ All the primary characters have at least their design and their full story/character going.

+ There is a Map in Progress

+ Minus the text, the character Marcelo's poster is done.

+All the playable characters are complete.

Seren Poster update:

The composition needed a huge re-do. The background is also a lot nicer and more simplistic. The description of who he is has been condensed from last time.

The Character Calamity finally has a poster. I'll still need to update it as I forgot the shadows. But other than that he is done. Calamity was originally meant to be the main antagonist of the story. But as time goes on he is more of a tragic character similar to Seren in that he does not know his purpose. It turns out the two were actually meant to be brothers and Calamity the original Keeper of the Stars. But... well the new main antagonist interfered with all of that. Calamity is however, the main antagonist for the most of the story, or so your character you play as (Seren) is lead to believe. And while it's true Calamity is bringing harm to people when he goes out of his mind, he isn't trying to conquer the world or anything. He's just so desperate to do anything to find out what he was meant for. As Calamity is a shape shifter, the black form or "Raw Form" on the right is his natural form, a result of never having been born or transferred to the planet properly. The form on the left is the form he stole from Seren. While Seren still has his own form, Calamity now has his own variation of it. It's the most comforting, as it is the form he stole from his would be twin brother, and thus the closest to his own form that would have been. Calamity does eventually join your party. He has four forms he shifts between. Seren form is his favorite and he chooses to be his new natural form. It's his most balanced form. The Raw form is used for espionage and scouting ahead, as he can be invisible

Kyros has been developing as one of the more Slavic inspired characters in terms of physical appearance. So far I have two drawings of him. One is below, the other is  a sketch book drawing which focuses more on his armor. Kyros is one of the playable characters in your party. He's the swordsman tank type character. Very strong, fun, free spirited sort of guy. He is sort of like a father to Seren and instills a strong sense of helping others. Kyros however is a bit of a flirt and a go-with-the-flow sort. 


Kiva has only come to me in the last day or so. She's the oldest of the main party characters you can play as in terms of physical age and life experience. (Seren and Calamity are older, but they'd be the equivalent to normal 16 year olds.) She is harsh on Kyros when he is slacking or flirting. In general she is a domineering warrior. She fights with a staph/sicthe sort of thing for medium distance. (As opposed to long distance Seren and close up Kyros). She's also the magic/healing one. To Seren she can be sweet and motherly, as the lad has absolutely no life experience despite his age

We also have Marcelo. He is a powerful Wizard that protected all major cities in artificial light when the starts and sun were taken away. He's kind of clutzy and childlike. He actually draws children, including Seren, to him with his personality. (He kind of can't really help it) He tries to show them all sorts of cool things. In the case of Seren, he is a mentor and guides the characters through their adventures with leads and ideas. He says if you collect the stars he can restore them.

A map in progress. Showing a lot of the 'Sunspots" Marcelo the Magician has made. Still a WIP.

Annnddd because everything else are sketches that I don't have scanned in, have this silliness I made with a friend. Seren is in pink. The blue character is my friend's character, who was created and developed around the exact same time as Seren.
