Vallicious; the destroyer
Creatures of many shapes and forms of fallen souls from the inferno come back. Burdened with eternal pain and unworldly bereave, they travel and destroy all they see and encounter. Some have the consciousness to hold conversations and tell their story, however, very little can see past their bereave and cannot grasp compassion any longer. Thus many are known simply as The Destroyers.
I never see female monsters in games, and when I do they are usually spin-offs of a normal woman form or at least the top half of the body. Thought this would be a good opportunity to draw a more female inclined monster / not medusa monster.

Gotta respect the world building to accompany the art, really adds a whole other dimension to it.

Wow nice

I really love how you have a "GROUP" of characters here nice deep textures and color tones and good details I could see you making some sort of web comic out of these guys, You have some very nice efforts and ofcourse most impressive details some things could be touched up but thats not too much to be honest. This was pretty Grand and Mythical my Overview Appropriately shows that you have great talent that puts you in the Spotlight and you have an Energetic and creative style about this piece and all of your art pieces. So besides all that said it was a nice entry to have seen and review keep up the brilliant efforts.

Such dark backstories,I would love to see a game with these characters,one where you switch between each character's story,and the choices you make change the events and ending for each character. Good job.

Really cool how you've taken the meanings for the names from not just one but multiple languages here, and even Sioux! Seems unusual. Each character's rife with personality already in the image, but the descriptions really add a lot, and all seem to have a personal loss or tragedy in their pocket. Amelia seems familiar... guess you might've posted some of these before? Also if this is for a game, comic, something else...? Seems interesting! Nice work.


Zakuga responds:

No they were an art challenge to come up with the quickest coolest characters in a Wild West theme. So these aren’t drawn very well, but thought out well. Lol
