+Anima OC Sketch by samyo123 +Anima OC Sketch by samyo123
Here's the ref I promised you guys!

I'm not sure what to name her, so I'm calling on you guys for help! This girl is a Hawk +Anima. (What's a +Anima? What's the OC for? Clicky clicky--->[link])

I'd like some original, unique names. For example, the four original characters from the +Anima series are named Cooro, Husky, Nana, and Senri. So please suggest creative names, because I'm probably not going to name her Suzy (no offense to the Suzy's of the world! ^^;)

So, character description (don't want to spoil too much but):

:bulletpurple:She's pretty tough, and isn't overly friendly to strangers. In fact, she has a hard time trusting people in general.

:bulletred:She doesn't have any parents anymore.

:bulletpurple:She grew up in the mountains, in a mining community.

:bulletred:Her +Anima mark (sort of like a birthmark for +Anima people) resembles a hawk's wings, I guess. But feel free to suggest something else. The mark would be on her back, between her shoulder blades, or if I come up with a new mark, on her shoulder. Here's some +Anima marks for you to get an idea: [link]

--------------
This is really a beta-tester sort of thing. I'd love your guys feedback, because ultimately, it's you guys who are reading it, so I think you should have some input.

So, things I'd love your comments and suggestions on:

:ibulletpurple: This OC's name!
:bulletred: Costume design!--This OC's design, Boy's clothes, girl's clothes...for all sorts of characters! (because I'm no fashion designer. :) ) This is sort of the time period's style:[link]
and [link]

:bulletpurple: Places for the characters to travel to! (Like a desert, or a forest, or on a mountain...)
:bulletred: +Anima you'd like to see appear in the manga! (Like a Shark +Anima or something! Just please don't suggest Cooro, Nana, Husky, Senri, or any other character that's appeared in the original books...OC's please!)
:bulletpurple: Any other plot advancements!
:bulletred: ANYTHING ELSE YOU CAN THINK OF! I want to have lots of variety and be very open-minded to all of your suggestions! Please don't take it personally if I don't want to use your idea, but don't hold back from asking!

Hmm... If I'm to draw her... What abilities does she have (if any)
I think I might want to incorporate them into the drawing.

:icontearyguyplz: You'll draw her?

Well, she can fly (duh XD) and her wings are completely retractable. I haven't really decided on any weapons for her.

I the story, she is the "protector" character (looks out for the others.)Therefore, she is almost passive-aggressive.

Did this help in the slightest bit? What sort of abilities are you looking for?

I see... does she have any form of elemental ability?

No, not really...

I was thinking about throwing the elements into the story, but what I'm really trying to avoid is having it turn into a "magical girl" type genre, so giving them magical powers wouldn't go over so well...

Are you still looking for a name? I was thinking Taka ^^ and, you've seen my +Anima OC, you can use her in your manga if you like, just make sure to give me credit! :P ^^

That's a great name, Taka! Another one I was thinking of was Calyx (from Pocket Fogs lol!) What do you think?

And you know what's really cool? My friend (who's also my "editor" :) ) said that I should put a shark +Anima in the manga. And then, when I'm looking for some +Anima clothing refs, your OC popped up! I'd really like to use it, if that's okay. :) (I'll be sure to give credit!)

Calyx is a great name too! :D (no one has to know it's from pocket frogs :P hahaha!)

and thats an awesome coincidence xD, there's a reference-type picture of my OC too, with bits about her personality and stuff, if you want to look at it ^^ No worries, I'm glad to help ^^

I think I'm gonna call her Calyx, with her middle name being Jane...(after much pushing from my editor...:iconorzplz:)

And yes, the ref sheet was very helpful! ^^

-The whole kind of "having no parents" is kinda cliched don't you think?
Making an OC
Okay, hold on.

:iconsamyo123:
samyo123 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012
Ah, yes, but it all ties in nicely with the story. How the OC loses her parents influences her outlook in life, changes her personality, and therefore creates a round and dynamic character, critical traits for a protagonist!

Sorry, in English class today we were talking about character types so I couldn't resist. :D

Oooh, you're making an OC?? :la:

Hmmm...
Erasmus:
A bio chemist who has the ability to morph into a platypus to use its poison as a weapon but is trying to find a positive use for it. He has many white lab mice in underground lab he gained from his parents. (Think: Steampunk.) Well, he has a lab coat, black hair, a tie, and glasses. If that's too modern, sorry. I'll work on his character.
Serious, Miser, arrogant (thinks he's smarter than everyone else although is respectful to his superiors AKA anyone better than him) And more.

Thanks for the quick reply! I'll try to use this OC!

But you're forgetting the +Anima principles: a +Anima does not simply morph into their animal, they gain certain traits (example: wings of a bird) so Erasmus would become part platypus. (A platypus +Anima...omg!)

I don't think it's too modern (his design), so that's good. I'll see if I can incorporate a city with a lab into the plot...can I change the bio chemist part to geologist? (The reason being that there is a legendary stone in the plot and I need a character who is an expert in geology...he could still keep the mice, and the Steampunk would work, too.)

And since he is arrogant and a Miser, would he still want to find a positive use for his +Anima abilities? Or would he be secretly sensitive and caring on the inside, and hard and emotionless on the outside?

Thanks for the OC idea! I'll see what I can do!

Apologies for the spam:
He is also willing to betray the team if the price is right.
He really doesn't care about the team and the only way he gets back is that they need his abilities.

We can definitely have him betray the group, but I think he's only going to be a secondary character...

Oh and uh he has a Ph.D in farming, and has bachelor's degrees in all sciences. (so we can put that he's a biochemist as well. Why a Ph.D in farming? Don't ask. Okay, it's joke material)

This would be good joke material!

Hawk +Anima: *examining his profile papers* Let's see...he works for privately owned lab company, keeps pet mice, and has a Ph.D in...farming? What the...? XD

And a chekohov's skill.
Who knows, maybe Hawk could get so hungry he could acidentally pick a poisonous plant and Erasmus slaps it out of his hand telling him he almost just died (and sadistically saying which would've been funny to him, not to mention he would get his money too.)

:iconblazingguns:
BlazingGuns Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Okay, I didn't know XD I guess he would have the claws for the poison, the fur for warmth, and the feet for swimming. He doesn't believe in waste and tries to use everything to its full potential, leading him to be hostile to people as he believes their abilities will not be helpful as they're not very diverse.(PLATYPUS MAN! Although platypus's are esstiently a combonination of a bunch of animals, which is what Erasmus tries to be. A combonation of different fields of educations)
Sure! it's your story.
oh and he's a con man as well, using deception and legal contracts, he cons a bunch of people out of their money. He would just use it to make a bunch of money...at first. He's hard and emotionless but can carry a soft spot for people he really loves but other then that, watch your wallet.
Okay! Thank you for accepting it!

samyo123 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012
It sounds good! I could always use a little deception in the story! XD

I'm not sure about incorporating all the physical traits you mentioned, but I'll try!

btw, I like how you compared the platypus's physical variety to Erasmus's educational variety. It makes sense!

:iconblazingguns:
BlazingGuns Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Try? Do or do not but do not try(XD Star Wars reference) sure! It's going to be hard but he's pretty diverse,he also can hold his breath up to 8 minutes by just laying still in water.
I know right? that's why I thought of the platypus from this T-shirt![link] XD

:iconsamyo123:
samyo123 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012
So...would he have claws at the tips of his fingers, webbed hands and feet, and the tail?

Because remember, he has to have some traits of the animal, but not all. Like these: [link]

Lol she didn't trust them at first! (She trusts them now cuz they're her friends!)

500 pages?? :iconsurprisededdplz: Maybe I'll get working on them some time...but first, takoyaki!

And oh my god, when I was writing about how I didn't want people to suggest names like Suzy, at first I was going to write JANE. But then I was like, well, Jane isn't such a bad idea, but I'm probably not going to name her that. When I first read your comment, I actually freaked out a little because you completely READ. MY. MIND. :icondramaticplz:
