View Full Version : [Other] Umbral Tide Characters

01-15-2009, 12:43 AM
I was reading Tysyacha's Umbral Tide stories over again and was inspired to make these. I tried to stick as close to the descriptions in the story as possible.

Here we have Iyadwen Vtorym, created by Tysyacha. Our beloved Secundant, exiled from her home, estranged from her people, and with but a troupe of foundling vagabonds to call friends, she journeys to the Dark Lands of Hrauk to regain her life, her honor, and the future of her world.


And here is Haldiros, created by JediMaster 12. Midnight-skinned Ebon Elf, cursed by his own race and relentless in his pursuit of justice, he would give his life to defend his dear friend Vtorym.


And here is Bryan Borneblade, created by Rev7. A sword-for-hire by trade, this stouthearted and faithful warrior will not forsake a friend in time of need, no matter what the cost.


And here is Yradne, created by Endorenna. A powerful wizard dedicated to the destruction of evil, she will cast fire, water, and even her own soul at countless enemies to aid Vtorym in her quest.


And here, lastly, is Uulrek Nahasht, created by myself. One of the ten Minstrel Defenders of the sacred forests of Zeylon and hater of the evil in the East, he promises to guide Vtorym through the forest and onward to her ultimate goal--or doom.

Join Vtorym, Haldiros, Bryan, Yradne, and Uulrek on their quest to find out the deepest secrets of the East, where the dead walk and darkness festers.
What evil is it, the very name of which strikes dread into the heart of even the stoutest warrior? Who is this Diktat, faceless overlord of the dead, and what is his purpose with Umbral Tide? Only the dead know...

OH...MY...THESE ARE COMPLETELY AWESOME!!! THANK YOU for such incredible work!!!

No, thank you, Tysy! Your stories are such a pleasure to read! Is there anything about the pictures I need to change to make them more accurate?

01-15-2009, 07:38 PM
Wow, Anduril. Very nice!

01-16-2009, 06:03 PM
Anduril: Nope--they're perfect as they are! I might have more opportunities for you to create art based on my stories--my new series (2), that is, if you want to do so! :)

01-16-2009, 06:15 PM
Wow, I'd love to see you try some stuff from Tysy's Mass Effect fic, or if you're willing, some stuff from my RP series. Brilliant!

01-17-2009, 12:08 AM
Oh, dear, I think I've misled y'all. I didn't actually draw draw these; I used a computer program to make them. Sorry! But I'd be happy to make other characters if y'all want.

^What program did you use? Photoshop?

01-17-2009, 12:18 AM
I used The HeroMaker (http://http://ugo.com/channels/comics/heroMachine2/heromachine2.asp). Anybody can make stuff on it.

01-17-2009, 12:21 AM
Awesome! I'm gonna check it out!

Here's two other pieces "artwork" by andurilblade, of father and daughter pair Komad and Kalla Kaltas from my Sith Resurrection RP Series:

The pics didn't show.

01-20-2009, 10:10 PM
Ooh, these are very nice, Andurilblade

Okay, so I just started using the Hero Maker. What program should I save my work to?

How exactly to I get the thing to save as a jpeg instead of code to bring it back in the program?

01-21-2009, 10:32 AM
I use Microsoft Word to save mine. Just save it to an empty file. To put the picture back into HeroMaker, there's a Load button next to the Save button. Click it and copy the file back into the box. To post a picture here, align the picture so that most of it is in the screen and punch the Print Screen/SysRq button. Then go to Paint, Edit, and Paste. Then Copy To, and put it in your Pictures. From there, trim with Photoshop, upload to Photobucket, and post! (I had to have this explained to me step by step, so the rest of you out there who can actually use a computer, just bear with me.:xp:)

EDIT: Sometimes when I reload a file into the program, either the background or the object in the left hand doesn't reload. It seems to happen randomly, and I can't for the life of me figure out why it happens. Just replace the missing item, and it'll probably reload the next time.

These are all very good.
