RotLDC Day 1: Zene Ashmen by The-Knick
RotLDC Day 1: Zene Ashmen

Rise of the Living Dead Characters — Day 1: Zene Ashmen (Original Guardian Saga)


The oldest character from this list, Zene has been around for a very long time, even competing against Knick as one of my oldest characters ever. The original iteration for my game concept, Guardian Saga/GSX (first named “Destiny Dream Saga”), and Zene were started back when I was a JRPG nerd and had a ridiculous game crush on Final Fantasy 7.

GSX lived on for a very long time, but it eventually died when the game was replaced with a fresher story, new characters, and a more FF9-inspired theme. I’ve pretty much dropped all the characters BUT ONE from that game. For that reason, Zene is the first character of this art jam.

However, he still lives on a little in the new hero of Guardian Saga, Tralin Doris, and probably a lot in Niko from Heartblade.

Mydhilde: Damage Input and Death

Damage and death is now something that doesn’t only apply to you!

The Loxes would be running away right now if they were programmed to understand fear.

Mydhilde Update Sneak Peek by The-Knick
Mydhilde Update Sneak Peek

Sneak peak into this Saturday’s Mydhilde update, which will reveal some new tools! SO INTENSE.

As much as I wanted to, I really had to refrain from using any puns in this post because they'd all just blow it.

Getting back into the swing of Flash animation.
New Niko 2 by The-Knick
New Niko 2
I just didn't like the pose and poor lineart on the last one. This one better fits Niko's character.

Starting this Friday, I’m doing a 1-Week Art Jam called "Rise of the Living Dead Characters". A halloween-themed art jam giving tribute to the mystical art of necromancy. I’m taking 7 of my favorite characters who’s projects have been totally cancelled and have very little chance of coming back and drawing 1 a day.

I was originally planning to do this for a whole month, but I got too busy. I even still have the list of 31 characters… Oh well.
