HB: Cast ~2012 by The-Knick HB: Cast ~2012 by The-Knick
UPDATE; 9-10-2012: WHOA MAJOR UPDATE. 16 new characters and 3 redraws.

Redrawn: Dinx, Pecilia, and Ikky

New characters: Motte, Befemon, Vlaaxim, Attacus, Maruca, Uruiz, Quarus, Penta, Medusa, Kelp, Master Weifao, Ian, Stella and Astell, Coby, and Chloreene!

UPDATE; 7-12-2012: There! That's about all the characters I'm going to draw here. There's quite a bit more, but they're less important/I don't feel like drawing them in this style.

New designs for Heartblade's characters.

:bulletgreen: Despite Buffie being further into the less main characters, she'll actually be with Niko's group almost all the time (and is a valuable asset).
:bulletgreen: Disciples are no longer demigods, but powerful mortals who have become one with their corresponding element, thus having immense power and wisdom.
:bulletgreen: Kiki looks more well-dressed than the rest of her direct family, because while the rest are mechanics and laborers, Kiki is a student of a high-profile school in Empirion (which is a big deal for anyone, especially for a Wyndellian family)
:bulletgreen: Lex is blind, but that doesn't mean he can't see you.
:bulletgreen: Dr. Freaksworth is an Automotogist (engineer) - one who studies automatons (machines). He's also into other studies...
:bulletgreen: Coby Bagel used to be married, until his wife was killed. He then became a paranormal investigator.
:bulletgreen: Chloreene is Coby's wife's younger sister, and now lives with Coby because she has no family left to turn to.

It's cool to see Ikky back, though I do miss her flaming hoodie.
The-Knick Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I miss it too, but I had to change it up to fit her into HB's theme.
