MIX IT UP (Sign up from April 1st-15th)

For the TAC Spring '11 Art Exchange, we're going to



Those wings sure are pretty, but you sure are looking a lil under the weather. Did you remember to eat today little fairy? Why are you looking at me like that? Oh dear, I think she just said "Brains"! That cute little thing is a zombie ahhhhh!

So you say you're a pirate, eh? Well what about those fangs? Ohh you're a vampire, too? Well, I guess that makes -you- a vampirate, and -me- outta here!



Aww what cute little pixie wings! Wait a sec, what is that on the side of your head? And why do you have a third eye pulsating in the middle of your forehead? Argh! It's a pix-borg! Run for your life!




Okay, so that's the general idea this time. Take any TWO, usually separate character types, and mix them all up. It can be anything, but let's keep them at least humanoid in nature. I mean sure an alien is okay, or maybe even a centaur type creature, just nothing so over the top that it might be hard for someone to recreate without pulling out their hair. If you think it would give -you- a headache, don't go there. You come up with the character; let your person come up with what they are wearing, and where they might be lurking.

Simple enough? Okay let's MIX IT UP!

If you wish to provide a history, feel free, but this time we went for something less literary and more let's just do some art. Please make sure you create a signature for your person along with the wallpaper or portrait, so they have something to show off on the board. If you have any questions at all, drop me or Lessa a note.

Desktop Size: 1440 x 900 OR 1280 x 800

Name: Sieja Allaya

In life, Sieja was a traveling bard with a mischievous and sometimes evil streak. While she regularly dealt in thievery, extortion, threats and the occasional murder, music was her number one passion. Sieja met her fate at the hands of a rival thief while she was in his territory. He garroted her with her own lute's wire. An ironic death.

Even in death, Sieja continues to strum the strings on her lute, despite having missing one. She forever stalks the landscape, searching for her killer.


I leave it up to the artist her look and clothing. She can be simply pale and ghastly or all out zombified!

Character type 1: Human
Character type 2: Cyborg
Description (please make sure to include hair & eye color here): Short brown hair, brown eyes - female. I'm completely open to whatever parts of her you want to make cyborg.

Caitlinn Conrad - Sergeant of the Outer Rim, security detail

Cait spends 99% of her time in her Therian-weave flight suit, patrolling the space station with her partner. She has a stoic ambivalence that people mistake for rudeness. More plain than beautiful, she suffers from insomnia and spends her off hours listlessly walking her patrol, staring out of the blast windows on the lower deck of the OR. Always armed, she feels more comfortable ready for an emergency than just relaxing.

Cait was the unwilling lab rat of an experiment that changed her physically and branded her a deserter. She feels no need to correct the latter, but is obsessed with finding the scientist who did the former.

Yay, my computer's finally back up and running, so I'm gonna join in this time!

Sudden movement in your peripheral vision causes you to turn your head to the left, but all appears normal in the tree-lined street you are walking along. A horrible gurgling sound makes you swing around to the right just in time to see your business associate falling to the ground with more blood than you thought the human body contained gushing from his throat. Before adrenaline even has time to kick in, you feel the brutal bite of a blade across your throat. As you sink to the ground, your murderer steps into your view. Dressed all in black, with a decidedly feminine grace, she bends down to leer at your demise. Through a darkening vignette, you catch the mechanical movement of her eyes.

"Cyborg!" you think. "No! It wasn't supposed to be this way!"

Blackness.


Cyborg/Ninja Assassin

Hair color: Long, straight, black

Eye color: Cyborg/mechanical

Appearance: Mostly Japanese humanoid, very pale skin. Hints of cyborg in eyes and whatever else you wish to throw in there. Dressed completely in black, she stays mostly in the shadows, and few have ever gotten a good look at her...at least, and lived to tell the tale.

Setting: A re-imagined late feudal Japan. Have fun blending in futuristic and/or Steampunk influences, or keep it simple with a shadowy alley. Your choice! (Least I can do after making you a murder victim, heh.)

Name: Known only as Nanashi, Japanese for no-name.

Eire D'Orakaa
Character type 1: Tier'Dal from EQ
Character type 2: Ice Elemental
Description (Tall, spare, elegant, handsome not pretty. She, a Tier'Dal made a deal with a god and was imbued with 3 ice elemental shards inserted in the following portions of her body - 1 shard in each eye and 1 shard into her heart. A cold arctic frost/snowy wind always plays about and from her body. A detailed physical description is below):
Rating: Anything Goes
Desktop Size: Standard, I'll resize to what I require.

Detailed Description of Eire D'Orakaa
Deep within an arctic fortress a figure encased in ice, rests in standing repose. Closed eyes rimmed with hoarfrost lashes, set in an austerely elegant face. One divided by a patrician nose and completed by full lips with which no laugh lines have ever graced. Tall and spare, as though time has pared away all that was dross upon that body, leaving an individual as elegant and balanced as a master crafted blade. Falling in long heavy waves, lapping in a pool around booted feet, is a veritable waterfall of hoarfrost coloured hair. Hair catching occasionally upon a bevor, rerebrace or poleyne left glittering rivulets of hoarfrost.
Abruptly, disconcertingly empty colourless eyes open and one elegant eyebrow arches. A mirthless smile pulls full lips into a sneering caricature, as those desolate white pupiless orbs scan her arctic home, left sealed off and inviolate while she retreated to slumber in the embrace of ice. One hand rises effortlessly through the ice encasing her, flashing briefly upon ring of platinum and carved bone, raised in bas-relief. As she starts moving forward through the ice, it retreats from around her figure, resealing as she passes until she stands in her inner study/workroom.
Absently she removes a dagger from somewhere upon her body and hauls the long waterfall of trailing hair around; a sudden flash of movement and a pool of radiant icy hair lies on the water worn slate floor. Catching up the remaining hair in quick economic movements; a long waterfall of hoarfrost is braided, the thickness of a man’s wrist, falling to rest in the small of her ramrod straight back. One hand resting atop the pommel of her icy hand and a half blade, the other gesturing to her ever present frozen dead in a familiar but long since unseen command. Scuttling, creeping and rattling they leave; off to reopen the home again, now that their mistress was awake.

Darsa 11 years ago
Character type 1: Barbarian
Character type 2: Phoenix

Description: Darsa is the product of an encounter her scouting/hunting barbarian mother had with a phoenix who was exploring the world in human form. She has her mother's dark green eyes, though they sport splinters of gold and overlarge pupils, bright and glittering; her skin tone is fairly pale, and there is the suggestion of what could at first be mistaken for freckles, but upon closer inspection look almost... sparkly. She sports her father's coloring in her hair, varying shades of red, orange and gold, worn long and loose usually, sometimes in a loose braid or carelessly pulled up. She has an fondness for feathers, wears them in her hair often, either braided directly into the hair, or hanging from headbands and other jewelry. She is sturdy and tall, taller than most average human females. She is following in her mother's scouting footsteps, also provides her home city with meat, leather and furs as a hunter; the townspeople return the favor with clothing and provisions that are ideal for her daily trips among the trees.

Character type 2: Demon
Description (please make sure to include hair & eye color here): 17 years old, small, black hair and eyes, wears a blue girl scout uniform when she hasn't accidentally caught fire and ruined it. Likes the outdoor life, campfires, long walks in the rain (keeps that whole fire thing from happening), and making new friends (while keeping the old).

Steam rose from Maki's skin as she walked along the ditch on the side of the dirt road. She was glad of the rain, as it kept the heat inside her from turning into flame, but she realized that she must look like a drowned rat to passersby. Her hair clung to the back of her neck in wet clumps and her nightgown, the only article of clothing she had left that wasn't scorched or burned, was soaked through.

The Girl Scout Jamboree wasn't going very well. Maki's cabin mates had only agreed to room with the scary demon if she did all the kapers. She'd spent the morning picking up trash, cleaning up after the other girls, making the cabin neat and tidy, and when she returned from leadership meetings that afternoon, she'd found all of her things packed up and stacked by the door anyway. She was used to it, but it still stung. Mean girls were going to be mean anywhere, she supposed, but she'd always sort of held out hope that girl scouts would be different. More campfires and singing and cookies, less politics and petty rivalries. They were trying to bring up future female presidents and all Maki wanted to do was eat marshmallows. And souls, of course - but not the whole thing! She just needed a bite every so often, and souls grew back.

None of this was her fault.

The rumble of a car on the dirt road interrupted her musings. She looked up in time to get a face full of dirty water; the jeep had hit a puddle and the resulting splash had towered over her head.

Maki was mildly surprised when the jeep came to a stop a few yards ahead, and a tall, big-boned girl hopped out. The amazon, who Maki recognized from leadership meetings as being a leader in training and unofficial troop mom, came running up to her, shouting over the rain. Maki could only make out bits and pieces through the rain and the white noise that seemed to surround her, latent demonic senses running constant interference, but the girl seemed concerned. Did she know what Maki was? She must - it seemed everyone had known from the first that she was the demon girl. It didn't seem to matter; she just ran up, babbling about 'soaked through and through' and 'you poor thing', picked her up as though she were a small child, and carried her to the jeep.

Her soul tasted like trefoils, all buttery and wholesome. Maki could have torn the bigger girl limb from limb, that's how demonic strength worked, but here she was, curled up next to her in the jeep, a uniform jacket thrown over her by one of the other girls. Later she would sit with her new cabin mates, wrapped in a fireproof blanket, and eat s'mores toasted to perfection.
