Nameless by flakycake Nameless by flakycake
Birthday gift to myself~ I officially have one year left to become a child prodigy. (haha)

It didn't turn out quite as I'd hoped, but I've had no time to do anything anymore...blaaah...

This is my character. He doesn't have a name, but that's because he refuses to take one. He's part spirit, hence the semi-dead look. I'm afraid that this picture is kind of confusing and chaotic...but he's smoking and a dragon is coming from it. No, it's not a literal representation of the story.

Nameless never sleeps. Ever. He can't 'cause he's too afraid. And he sawed off his left antler and strips the scales from his skin (hence the bandages everywhere.) But he's not emo. He's not. He's very practical and logical and non-angsty. I promise. I just put him through a lot of psychological junk, is all.

Anyways, don't mind me, just spamming your inbox...

P.S. I will DEFINITELY be touching this up later.

Birthday Resolutions:
1. Take time on pieces. No more quantity, go for quality.
2. Develop a unique style.
3. Be inventive.

I can't believe I only just found this. It looks very cool, with the stylized clouds in the bottom. Are you going to draw more of this character?

Thanks! Oooh, I'm so attached to him. I'm one of those crazy people that thinks their characters are people. >___>

Actually, I draw him all the time. At least once a week. (Usually in the same pose.) I think I can find some sketches...hmm... [link] [link] [link]

His face likes to change a lot. I'll figure that one out eventually. Maybe I'll make actual pieces with him in it some time. :D maybe maybe.

What you did say of Nameless's backstory has me hooked. I WANT TO KNOW MORE NOW. |D

Reaaaaaally? :D Well...I could tell you SOME....but even that is...very long, and a bit R rated at some points. D: Do you still want to know a little?

Hmm...okaaaay!

In his world, left-handed people are regarded as evil. You see, spirits are able to change humans into spirits as long as they're left-handed. Nameless just happens to be left-handed, naturally. Things happen, and somehow, a spirit takes him against his will and the process of transformation begins...but he's entirely p.o.'d about this (and scared) so he refuses to become a spirit. As long as he doesn't sleep, he won't transform. So he smokes things to keep him awake, and has general issues in no longer being human. (Like cutting off his antler.) And no matter what he does, his scales always come back, so he takes a knife to them to strip them off...but then he has to wear bandages all the time because he can't heal if he doesn't sleep. He's already changed so much, though. His hair used to be curly and brown, he used to be really short (not 7 feet tall.) and his skin wasn't nearly as pale. D: Poor little guy just doesn't know what to do. On top of that, he wears the color red (which spirits just DO NOT do. It's a human color.)

There's so much backstory, actually, that I still haven't figured out the actual, current story. Haha. ;D But I'm working on it. This isn't even a fourth of it.

Oh man. He's going to get sick like that (or do spirits not catch illnesses)? Anyway.

All that backstory's up in your head, huh? I never feel like writing any of my own characters' backstories down, even though it'd probably help. Oops.

Haha, yeah. Most of it is locked up tight in that crazy place I call my mind. He does eventually get really sick, 'cause he's being waaaay too stubborn.

Sweetass dragon, man. I like its facial features. So reptilian and yet swirly-traditional... I think the lankiness really works well on the boy too.

What an interesting character. You must draw more of him.

I love the style of this. It reminds me of the wind in "Zelda: Windwaker" or the swirly stuff in xxxHolic. Of course, if you've never heard of either then you won't know what I'm talking about. In fact, you might not even know what I'm talking about even if you have heard of them. Ugh, whatever, I'm complimenting you, OK?

Oh, and you're already a prodigy in my eyes, flakycake. (aww, ain't I sweet?)

Remember, kids, don't smoke or a freaking fire dragon will eat your face and then strangle you 'till your antlers fall off.

Best anti-smoking ad ever.
