Why is her head so big... by leonaheidern Why is her head so big... by leonaheidern
I know, I'm not good giving a title to my pictures... But the title reflects a lot what I think of this picture. It could be a great one if I hadn't drawn her with such a HUGE head.

I know too that you might be sick of seeing goth girls in the World of Darkness and that dark doesn't mean goth... but Chiara is a goth, and I'll draw her as a goth.

Actually, when I created her I had not thought of her being a goth. She was just that calm, introverted and utterly weird Philodox. Then I thought of making her a goth as some kind of joke, because too many people seem to play a goth in WoD games... In all of them but Werewolf! Now I'm glad I've given her this image, because I love it. Nobody would think that she belongs to the tribe of Children of Gaia, I guess, but then she was born in a Black Spiral hive, raised to keep the Dark Litany and then rescued and re-educated to be a Gaian Philodox. You wouldn't be an archetypical Garou after that, I tell you XD

As you might imagine (or not), she's a metis. Although she doesn't have any visible deformities, she is far from being sane. She works hard to keep herself from losing her mind, but too often for her own good, she suffers from madness attacks, which might have any kind of effects on her. Just as something curious, when she suffers from one attack, I choose randomly one of the 12 Wyrm impulses and make her suffer something related to it: dellusions for Pseulak, paranoia for Sykora, etc.

Blah, I've already written too much. I tend to divagate.

I hope you like it (But WHY IS HER HEAD SO BIG???)

Hahaha, what a coincidence! I think I have more pictures of her in my gallery.
Chiara is one of my most old characters and also one of my favorite ones. She's been through so much.
I think your character really looks cool. The only big difference I find is that yours is wearing trousers, and Chiara wouldn't because she thinks they are unconfortable (as she is a metis and was raised in her crinos form and with no clothes). Aside from that, they are really similar. Might they be cousins? XD

you never know Xp

the GM/Storyteller just sprang the weirdest thing on us a few games ago.

He's kinda been droping these semi sublte hints that I only recently figured out, since im new at WTA.

First time I shifted, he told everyone that my fur is a luminescent white.

My C.O.G. found this old tree with cave drawing in it, there were black and white wolves fighting, the black began to outnumber the white.

one night as a was looking around the sept/cairn I over heard the sept leader and rites master saying "she's a White Howler, she has all the marking"

when I did some OOC research on White howlers, I realized any wta vet would kill to get that status XP

Head looks fine to me! (You could always say it's another metis deformity)

I really like this. As a player of Garou myself, and as the player of a former metis, I like anyone who plays them, especially if they have as much artistic talent as you obviously do.

Great work.

And I also love metis. I think they have a lot of roleplaying opportunities.

Best darned characters in the game in my opinion. I managed to pull off being Alpha Metis in my home sept for two years before Padraig died....and nobody ever found out! *Woot* Metis Pride! *LOL*

xD No, si te entiendo.

Bueno, ella es un personaje de Hombre Lobo: el Apocalipsis, un juego de rol, no sé si lo conoces. Es una Philodox, una guardiana de las leyes y tradiciones de los hombres lobo... Aunque como nació entre los Danzantes de la Espiral Negra, una tribu de hombres lobo corruptos, aprendió las leyes de una forma un tanto retorcida XD Aunque ya no está con ellos, es una Philodox bastante atí;pica.
Además es metis, fruto de una unión prohibida entre dos hombres lobo (se supone que deben aparearse con humanos o con lobos, nunca entre ellos), por lo cual posee una deformidad, como todos los metis... Ella en concreto sufre ataques de locura.

aaaaaaa algo de eso se, pero la verdad es q no estoy tan familiarizada con hombre lobo, pero pato siempre me anda explikando cosillas XD

pero lo de la deformidad lo sabia , asi q en vez de tener una deformidad física tioene una deformidad mental? por decirlo asi?

La deformidad no siempre es física. Los hay que, por ejemplo, tienen ataques epilé;pticos. Para crear deformidades creativas puede ser una buena idea echar un vistazo a algún texto simple de medicina acerca de enfermedades congénitas o genéticas, porque dan muchas ideas.

Chiara, por su parte, tiene una deformidad algo más metafísica... Cada vez que se altera corre riesgo de sufrir un ataque de locura... Y este está siempre relacionado con uno de los Impulsos del Wyrm (pregúntale a Pato qué es eso si no lo sabes, que si no me eternizo explicando), es decir a veces le da un ataque de lujuria, a veces de ira, a veces de megalomanía, a veces de desesperación o de miedo... Por lo cual es bastante impredecible. Ella odia que le pase eso, y siempre trata de mantener el control, por lo que da la apariencia de ser muy pasota y de no preocuparse por nada... Aunque los que la conocen saben que es hiperactiva y que siempre se preocupa por todo el mundo.

O ya veo, q bueno q te documentes para los juegos eso les da un toque de originalidad a lso personajes :D lo digo por lo q dijiste del libro de enfermedades y todo eso.

Me parece estupendo, tienes buena creatividad para hacer personajes y eso complementa aun mas los dibujos :D

Felicitaciones *O*

Wow!!! So it's true! You exist! I heard rumors about people who actually read the descriptions, but I thought it was an urban legend.

I'm glad there is people who still read the descriptions, because I have a hard time writing them in English, and I sometimes feel it's not worth it.

Thanks for the praise too ^^

Am I the only one? Well, I was anticipating that for some time now.. :D

And I know what you mean. For a person who's native language isn't english, it can be sometimes pretty hard to translate what's in (my)mind at the moment.
...And then no-one bothers to read my artistic comments! T_T

I don't translate too often. I try to think in English. But my vocabulary in English is not as rich as in Spanish.

And yes, you're the only one. I have some friends that read my comments... But just because they're my friends, I guess.

Yo creo que la cabeza esta proporcionada; quiza es la perspectiva y su peinado lo que la hace parecer mas grande. Aunque sea así, el pelo te ha quedado genial, y la expresion de la cara tambien.

A mí también me sorprende lo bien que me ha quedado el pelo... Lo cierto es que me pasé bastante trabajo con él. La expresión de la cara también me gusta como me quedó... Generalmente la hago con expresión de tía dura, pero aquí quería reflejar también una cierta melancolía, que aunque no se le suele notar demasiado, es parte fundamental del personaje.

Puede que sea cabezona porque es una mente pensante y elucubradora, conocedora de muchos misterios que en un cabeza normal no cabría :D Así que, su cabeza está bien ^^

Me gusta mucho el dibujo, sobre todo su pelo, el trabajo que has hecho con los colores es impresionante.

Vale, es cabezona, pero la cara es perfecta. Me encanta el maquillaje a lo cuervo o Razor, los piercings están muy chulos y el pelo te quedó muy guapo.

Lo dicho.. Misa gutta!! :P
