Next up inline, Here a concept I got a few weeks back. It's just my redesigns of the ancient Greek gods with a bit of a 'Modern' feel to it. Each have their own weapons & I'm seeing this from a toy line perpective.
Well yesterday, the results for the Animax Pan Asia competition were announced & unfortunately The Beast Legion didn't quite make it to the finals. I got to agree I was dissappointed as I had a little hope. Anyway this has only motivated me to write a new much better script for it the next time the competition is out. The only drawback being that it may not be animated by A1 Pictures. so I guess better luck next time.
I'll have the first part of the first chapter posted here on my blog itself in a few minutes.
The Doppelganger is perhaps the Shadow Legions most prized warrior. Haveing the ability to manipulate the form of any one he chooses, he is a great threat to the Defenders of Light & their quest. His ability to transform requires no special armor. Nobody has actually seen his true Beast form although it wil be shown later during season 2.
This is a pic I did for the "Practice Makes Perfect" Art Jam we have going. The concept was to focus on expressions in the most natural way. I can't say I nailed it but i was quite satisfied with the final pic. Took me about 20 mins to do the pencils & 45 min to color. I chose a marshlnd as the background for this pic to indicate that the Tree was all alone in the center of the Marshes.
I wish I could post the scripts online, but I can't until the results of the competition I enter are out. Anyway here he is.
Tuskas is the ruler of the
Being the oldest member of their group, he often provides Sound advice & strategies which prove of great use. He has the power to turn liquid into Ice. Standing 6 feet 6 inches tall, He’s a force to be reckoned with in battle & is highly trained. He already has control of his Beast armor when Xeus & gang find him during their search for the armor.
Ironically, this contest started only a few weeks after I started drawing the Beast Legion & I kinda see it as a message from above. So I wasted no time & got to writing the first episode & ended p writing 5 . Just sent the scripts along with the character designs yesterday & heres hoping something comes out of it. I'll keep you guys informed as more updates are available, so stay tuned.
Wraptor- Evil Mumified Snake Wizard.
Ickthia - Monsterous daughter of Merman
Brilight is a gentle creature & is refered to as the 'Light Gaurdian'. But when time comes he can be as ferrocious as ever. Brilight emit & powerful ray of light from its bdyl which can instantly vaporize Shadow Legion Minins & hence is impervious to their attacks. It helps the heroes to sniff out the different Best armors the come their way .
As short & frail as he may look, Master Surya is one of the most powerful wizards in Lithopia & the only remaining survivor of the 'Union of Wizards'. It was he along with his apprentice who tricked Dragos & sealed him in the Hell Hole void. Rescuing Xeus, Doku trians him in the art of battle to fight Dragos & hiss minions. Doku uses the wing on his back as a mode of transport that allows him to maneuver out of the toughest situations. he is also the owner of Brilight.
These are Shadow legion Soldiers I have planned for the latter half of the series. These brutes are slower but more stronger & deadly then the regular Shadow legion minions. Their stell bdies make them impervious to swords stabs . Their weapon includes Two vertically rotating arm blades, thats lice any object that comes their way.
Tazmonak is an evil bounty hunter, who'll do anything for the right price. However due to an attempt of betraying Dragos, Tazmonak is now forced to serve the Shadow legion, under Dragos' spell.
Tazmonak's Beast form, a Tazmanian Devil, looks small, but his agility & speed is incomparable. Once in his beast mode he goes on a viscious rampage against his opponents till he pics them.
The sole survior of the Krios tribe, inhabitants of the forests of Greenak, now known as the Tomb of the giant, Poka is a 14 year old who's dream is to become a Hero one day. As to how he is the sole survivor will be exlained when i releae episodes. Since he is the last survivor of his tribe, he is given the the Shell of thorny Spines , a back armor that allows him to transform into a Hedgehog-like Gaurdian Beast. His weapon includes a specially crafted Krios boomerang that multiplies when thrown.
The problem is Poka hasn't got the experience to use it which often creates a number of blunders usually getting him into trouble. His constant sneezing, allows his best form to trigger on & off & throw his spikes randomly. But all in all., Poka posseses goodness & often provides a bit of humor in the lives of our heroes.
As to why he is named the Giant killer, I assure you time will tell.
The Evil Levaitha has an iron grip over the Sea of Dregnaut. Imprisoning all the the other undersea dwellers of Dregnaut, Levaitha forces them to work for her or suffer the consequences. Serving the Shadow Legion, Levaitha would never miss an opportunity to attack Xeus & his comrades whenever they cross the Dregnaut sea.
Transforming into a giant undersea Eel-like creature Levaitha can pass electric surges, that stun her opponents & allow her to move in for the kill.
This is the for a basic Shadow legion soldier. They can actually transform into shadows & hop between shadows & hence constantly spy on all that happens . They are actually created from shadow. However they cannot survive in bright light which gives the good guys th upper hand. But these fierce creatures are known for their deadly claw strikes & camaflouge.
Fyre is a young woman & the sole survivor of her tribe. After the Shadow Legion invaded the world for a second time, her people began to fight against the growing Evil but they did not prevail. Fyre still lives with the guilt of seeing her parents die in front of her when she was young & thus protects the other villages from Dragos' wrath in a disguised form.
Now allied with Xeus, Fyre is on a path to set things right & avenge her parents death. She posseses a band she wears on her right arm, given by her mother,which allows her to transform into a Pheonix, I bird said to be made from Fyre.
A set of regular Horde Scouts seen in the episode 'Origin of the Sorceress'. This is
one of the challenges that I had won.
He's a villian from the New Adventures of He-man.
The residence of the Evil Wizard Dragos. This abomination of a structure holds all of Dragos' dark secrets & its Gaurdian rock Dragon comes to Life when The Fortress is under threat. Situated in the Blood feilds of Despair, the tower is extremely hard to access. But before reaching it Drago's opponents must cross the dangerous Cursed Woods, a region through which none have returned except the Shadow legion.
The concept is based in a mystical land of peace & prosperity until the day an Evil Force know as the Shadow legion attacked under the Evil leadership of the Wizard Dragos, a being of immense magical power. In order to retaliate against Dragos' attacks the ancient wizards created mystical armors that allowed the person who wore itto transform into a mystical Guardian Beast. With these powers the forces of good stood a chance , until a defected ancient gave Dragos the secrets to make the armors for his evil minions as well. After years of struggle, the forces of good managed to banish Dragos to a parrellel universe known as the Hell Hole.
But now Dragos seeks to return & rule the land , & only a guardian with the Royal bloodline can defeat the forcess of Darkness, as per the Prophecy.
