    Bootleg draws Fan Characters (my own and others)

    **UPDATED WITH MORE ART BELOW--PLEASE SCROLL DOWN!!!**
    MANTICORE created by Bootleg ADDED May 5, 2008
    KACTURA created by Super-MunkyBoy ADDED April 24, 2008


    I decided to start a new thread for miscellaneous fan characters that I draw, including ones that I've created, and for original characters from the 'Org that I've become a fan of.

    Here's the first one... As a companion piece to the Horde Prime redesign that I posted earlier in the week, here is a fan character that I created, Ifreet (named after the mythological entity):



    The idea here is that Horde Prime and Hordak's race have a symbiotic relationship with Imp's race. Ifreet is one of Imp's kind--but where Imp is still a mischievous adolescent, Ifreet is a fully matured specimen. Further explanation in the overly detailed bio:

    * * *

    PROFILE: Horde Prime is infrequently seen without the zealot IFREET at his side. And one can be certain that if Ifreet is absent, he is carrying out the orders of his master. Unquestioning in his loyalty, Ifreet plays a role for Horde Prime analagous to the role that Imp plays for Hordak--something of a cross between pet, valet, yes-man, messenger, and herald. But where Imp's diminuitive size gives him the added role of spy, Ifreet's imposing stature instead allows him to perform the function of bodyguard. He stands at close to nine feet tall, is capable of breathing hellfire, and has the natural shape-shifting abilities of his race (but unlike Imp, his shape-shifting is focused on combat rather than disguise). In addition to his innate abilities, consider that his regular armament includes a stun trident and an elite Horde bowcaster, and you will realize that there are few warriors in the galaxy who could prevent Ifreet from executing his master's will. However, Ifreet essentially has no identity outside of his servitude to Horde Prime.

    HISTORY: Having been Horde Prime's trusted servant literally since before Hordak was born, Ifreet has a unique and envied position within the Horde, in spite of lacking "official" power within the Horde hierarchy. Even Hordak resents Ifreet, much in the way that Hordak's underlings resent Imp. Now, in the wake of Horde Prime's regeneration and rebirth, Horde Prime is himself leading the invasion of Eternia, which means that both he and Ifreet are more visible and present, resulting in further resentment amongst high-ranking Horde officers. All in all, Ifreet refrains from abusing his advantaged station, however, those foolish enough to defy his master earn Ifreet's eternal enmity.


    * * *


    Comments and crits welcome, thanks for looking! Next up will be Super Munky Boy's Kactura.

    Cool concept. I really like the idea of a symbiotic relationship between Hordak's and Imp's races.

    Man - your work just gets better and better. I love your style.

    I'm still waiting to see you put it all together into a story arc. Even a 5 page story would be cool!

    Ifreet is cool - I'd love to see him in scale relative to your Horde Prime (which I enjoy, by the way).

    I'm eager to see which fan-characters you do in your style!

    BlueStreak: thank you so much! i'd like to eventually do some pages in the style of the first few mini-comics (in other words not technically comics, more like an illustrated storybook). that's a long way down the line though--all the sketches i've been posting on the 'org are sort of like model sheets for my version of the motu/pop world, and i'm a long way from having just the main cast filled out (can't believe i still haven't posted a he-man or teela!)

    ZvedaFire: honors?! you're too kind, man. i don't want to divulge my list of characters to draw just yet, simply because sometimes i'm so slow at getting around to what i want to draw (for instance, this thread has been marinating in the back of my brain for months now). i will try to keep this thread in regular rotation along with my variants thread and my "standard" motu/pop thread. as for an imp-blue version of ifreet, i'll see what i can do.

    BlueLobster1979: honor?! there's that word again! ... thanks man, honestly, i'm just glad people are following this thread.

    gatchagrey: i appreciate it!

    j-bird: thank you--a scale chart is an excellent idea, i will see what i can come up with.

    Patreek: thanks dude! i'm going to try and switch off between my own characters and other people's characters to keep people's interest in this thread.

    Hordaks Henchman: you're like clockwork with your customs! i'm glad you like ifreet. can't wait to see what you come up with.

    oICEMANo: glad to hear it!

    Today's post is Super-MunkyBoy's awesome character Kactura:



    A cactus woman with built in spikey tonfa, thigh-high platform boots, and an an elegantly crisp color scheme? I was instantly won over the first time I saw this character. Read about Kactura here, and then do yourself a favor and check out Super-MunkyBoy's deviant art page--right here.

    super-munkyboy: it's always a little nerve-wracking when one tries to do justice to someone else's character, so i'm really stoked that you like how kactura turned out!

    Patreek: thanks, glad you like the pose!

    j-bird: thank you... i have a tendency to tack on pointy ears any chance i get. same with bat-capes.

    Warpigs: i'm glad you like ifreet. i think its the grizzlor-like harness that really makes him horde-like.

    gatchagrey: thanks--i think the colored lines help take the edge off of my linework, since i'm a little heavy-handed sometimes.

    galaxy warrior: thank you GW!
