She’s abusing +DMG more than DeathBlade. Her RY seems to be a bit pointless tho.

Topic: Eredan Arena / New mechanic suggestion, Medal system.

Sounds interesting but a bit OP.

When it comes to STR based medals, yes we have Smite, but you may need to realize that in pirates’ case they have Powder which snowballs any STR that comes in their way, as little as it is.

And the last two are not that balanced either, do you know what Blizzard can do? Kokrem with at least 1 RRY will have 600 blizzard if combined with lvl 2 Medal.

Also, Vizir gives 30 Res to both himself and his desert nomads per RY, that translates from 30 to 90 and with your medal at max level it can go from 50 to 110 and that translates to LOTS of damage from the opponent thrown out of the window.

Your idea is good, but it needs to be taken carefully.

Looks like my world is different from yours then.

Also, it’s not pointless if this is about the card in question. This is a hero overview right?

The fuck did I just took time for to waste reading all this ? This is clearly not an art display, that’s one, second, all arguments lack all sorts of imagination towards the artist’s perspective. Don’t know her, don’t care but you do have her deviantart profile rıght here judging by the name given above: http://hioutsider-studio.deviantart.com/ and you can share there all your criticism. This coming from another designer that appreciates personallity put in ones work and the artwork here does not lack any of that.
This being said, Eredan world is a fantasy world where – anything can be possible – and I would personally care more about reading how she fits in the arena instead of how superglued her boobs are.
Feel free to disagree, I like engaging in witty debates but the subject of this discussion is ridiculous on so many levels.

>All arguments lack all sorts of imagination

Lolwut? You’re going to tell me that both OPG and I have just said what we said because shit happens? Who said this doesn’t have any personality in the first place? It has flaws, and those flaws I have shown in a constructive manner (I don’t know about OPG because I’m not him, so I leave it to him when it comes to this).

Oh and I love how you say that this subject is ridiculous where hero overviews are a place where we can DISCUSS ANY FUCKING THING ABOUT THE SAID HERO. And you’re not making it less “ridiculous” either, so good job hypocrite.

One more thing, deviantart can go mutilate it’s own asshole. I can’t understand why artists such as Elizabeth get to stay here and even pay for this piece of shit site that’s infested with furry fetishist pedos and anime-crazed fans who will shun you if you don’t suck Japan’s dick. I’ve been there myself, and I know how much of a piece of shit that site is, when it lets people who have done fanfics get away with it and even let them SELL their own fanfics while others who have done legit motivationals and such get threatened with copyright infrigements. Fuck injustice and fuck that site too for it’s injustice.

Discussing realism of a fantasy artwork is like explaining why soccer is not like american football because the ball is too round. And that was not why I decided to state my position but the fact that the discussion focused more on boobs and fake penises than necessary. I hardly believe this would be a topic of interest but then again..
Makes it even worse that I actually have to explain why it is ridiculous.

Oh so I haven’t used common sense when I tried to point out flaws such as big perspective mess on her second artwork. I know how perspective works, I know it’s rules and I have practiced it myself, and I can tell you, that is NOT how it’s supposed to act.

And just for my curiosity, you’re a designer at….what? Making shit statements?

Trust me buddy, legal or, like in this case, fictional internet regulations are the least of my concerns. We have universally accepted freedom of speech and that is more than relevant for any case. As long as your freedom does not infringe the freedom of others of course. Once again I’m calling for common sense and not for – cans or cant-does -, ain’t telling anybody what he/she can/can’t do, just merely judging a more socially related aspect concerning common sense. While I gave the example above with different sports, this falls in the same category and it is subjected to the general acceptance of the people involved.
Technically, the mercenaries in suits of modern worldwide politics have the same equivalent to internet trolls and while here is clearly not the place for talks related to the first, it is clearly a place to stomp on the toes of the second.

Oh so I have infringed Elizabeth’s freedom because of contructive criticism….And I don’t even hate Senya’s artwork, I even said that it’s beautifully done outside of the flaws that I just detected, but whatever, I guess opinions and constructive criticism = non-existent isn’t it?

I swear to Stalin I live in a world full of idiots. You keep on saying how it’s stupid criticism, while I bet that the all-mighty designer called Seffen7 knows everything about art from the birth of Jesus until the creation of Putin’s coconut plantation in Siberia. He knows it all so we should bow to his truthfull and absolute opinion otherwise we will be cursed by his pineapples to give him coffee and sunflower seeds every day, OH GOD DA HORROR!!!11111111oneoneeleven People, let’s all bow to Seffen7 and his wisdom if we don’t want him to send us to Auchswitz-Birkenau and gas us with Zyklon B, it doesn’t matter if you have an opinion or he could be potentially hypocritical, we need to bow down and go to the Church of Seffen7 so we can admire his wisdom.

Now if you excuse me, I’ll go invoke the power of Kamasutra to give me ultimate knowledge and the answer to the reason behind people like you. And pray to the Aztec god Khakalla while I’m at it.

God damn it, I was working on a breakdown of Senya’s impracticalities!! (while we’re at it, you didn’t mention that her metal cups are only attached to her spandex leotard, which in the active lifestyle of a Witchblade is a quick path to tearing imo (unless, of course, those cups are superglued on her breasts which I’m not ruling out))

That being said, Elizabeth Torque is a splendid artist, even moreso when she’s not attempting the animu. Sybelle and Lady Dynamite were both full of personality and iirc Sybelle was the only one with any anatomical errors (her hips and legs were wonky). I’d love to see her try out a Nehantist character, or even a man.

Oh? It was a she? If that’s the case I apologize Elizabeth. I will try to edit it now.

I didn’t noticed the spandex leotard, then again, if what you said about it tearing it’s true, then it’s either that her breasts are basicly glued to her metal bra or she just doesn’t care.

I also love Lady Dynamite and Sybelle, Ashtra is also quite decent although she has her flaws just like Senya does.

Topic: Eredan Arena / Hero Overview: Senya

Ok, now that I have looked more clearly, I noticed that, artwise, she has very big flaws on each of her levels. I will point them out as we speak…

But before we get on going, I will have to let everyone know that I will only talk about art, not skills. I still stand by when I say that she’s balanced and decent enough to win a fight.

Now, let’s continue:

lvl 1 art

This one has flaws that are quite…..freaky. Her corset (or swimsuit I guess) makes it look like she has a dick and she has a torpedo breast (her right breast) as you can notice. Her thighs are also too enlarged, even for a girl that supposedly wears a corset or swimsuit armor thing that lowers her waist. And yeah, we do have to notice the shining effect that’s present on both her skin and her clothing (such as her leggings and her armor)…that is a big flaw because it gives the illusion that Senya is made out of the same material her clothing is made of, which she isn’t (right?)…that’s not really how human skin shines, due to it’s organic structure, thus this kind of shining effect is quite impossible when it’s present on BOTH her skin and her clothes. Also, her left arm is way too curvy – where is her biceps and triceps respectively?

lvl 2 art

This is where I get bothered with the most, because, according to the rules of perspective the handle of both her rapiers should be oriented downwards since they’re part of a plan which is the rapier itself, not TOWARDS THE VIEWER, that’s just not how perspective works. The shading and shiny effects don’t make it any better, and that’s why I cringe whenever I see her lvl 2 artwork. Since the handle of her rapiers are half-circle shaped, we should see that more easily, but right now, it gives a very weird feeling, at least to someone like me. And according to her lvl 3 artwork, the grey endings of both handles should be visible due to perspective making the rapiers themselves go downwards, but they aren’t. It makes me feel like her rapiers are slanded, unfit for fighting simply because of this. Another problem is her right hand – as it is right now it looks like her rapier is about to slip and fall to the floor. Maybe the artist didn’t bothered with it because she didn’t wanted to put additional detail, but right now it seems to me she either has no hand here or she may do, but then the handle may be unusually bigger than expected and that’s what is shown on her lvl 3 artwork but NOT her lvl 1 artwork. Also another perspective issue that I think it’s not that bad is the fact that her right leg seems to be less thicker and smaller than her left leg. I think it’s more of a coincidence however, since perspective can make the artist get away with it, but I feel like her left leg is way too thick in comparison with her right leg. I mean, if that’s what her left leg REALLY looks like she would need the body of a chubby woman just to make sense for such a leg to have. And yet again, we have the odd shining effect on her body which makes it look like she’s made out of latex.

EDIT: I go back to her lvl 2 artwork and her other artworks back and forth and notice that her bra is not the same gray, metallic color that her bra on both her lvl 1 and her lvl 3 has. It is the color of her clothing, which is purple. Yet it does have the screws (you can see two of them), so with this said, the only plausible explanations I have are that the artist either rushed her lvl 2 artwork or got so annoyed that she couldn’t bother with it anymore. Or maybe she just forgot.

lvl 3 artwork

As OPG said, her breasts seem to be resistant to gravity. And he’s right – according to her dynamic position, it looks like she was caught in mid-leap, which means her breasts would go up. And it doesn’t matter whether she has a metal bra or not, that’s how it works. But then again, this is not the full picture, so judging by her right leg I can’t figure out if she’s jumping or running, if she’s running then her breasts are normal tho. Just like in the lvl 1 artwork, her corset/swimsuit thing makes it look like she has a dick and her arms are way too curved out (missing biceps and triceps respectively). And YET AGAIN, the faulty shining effect that makes her look like she’s made out of latex (which is weird, because she’s human after all).

Besides the flaws that I’ve mentioned, I find no faults at all with the artwork – the shading is done well, the colors are beautifully done, Senya herself looks alright. However, the artist needs to work on perspective. I hope that the artist won’t take this as a rude comment or an insult, because it wasn’t meant to be this way, it’s meant to be constructive criticism, seeing as I am an artist too, and I know how to paint and draw so I’ve got the experience for it.

It’s animu; what do you expect? She already has the gravity-resistant breasts, so all Senya needs now is about six more redundant buckles.

You’re right about the pants, it makes her look like she has a dick.

As for anime, not all girls there look like they’re latex, or plastic.

When it comes to the artwork I have a feeling there’s only one flaw – the shining effect she has on her body (such as her legs)….it makes her look like a plastic woman. Otherwise I find no flaw, it’s just beautifull.

When it comes to skillset she’s actually balanced. Marauder, Nox and Human traits give her LOOOTS of buffs to choose from, which means Blanche, Bloodsword and Telendar. :D Basicly, RRRRBS with Telendar can give you the damage trophy, just make sure you don’t get spellbreak’d.
Her skill may not bring anything new, but it’s quite a good mash-up of shock and multi-hit. Crits work on Senya flawlessly seeing as shock can’t be modified and the second skill only pumps up more damage.

All in all, she’s very decent and I want to have her at lvl 3 this week. I’ve already got her at lvl 2 today so that’s quite something.

SPOILERS If you haven’t played the iTCG version at least then ignore this comment SPOILERS

Can I get to know what happened with Toran? I see in iTCG that he’s both a Crow and a Tsoutai, but there’s also another version of him called Toran the Faithless that looks quite weaker – his Flawseeker looks more dark-purple-ish in color and it’s only 1 too, and Toran himself looks quite unhealthy. What happened to him and why did he lose his faith? And in what, in the first place?
