Ah, “Lv. UP!”

I’ve been doing quite a bit with this universe, and it’s not even mine. Yet I’ve managed to create a fair number of characters relating to it. It started with Malcolm, and then after a long time both Mag and Diesel emerged. With the three of them together a separate story for them began to take shape. This in turn caused another character to appear, Marcy. If it’s to be counted, Malcolm’s cursed coat “Obsidex” was an early idea that wasn’t revealed until later.

Indeed, there was quite a lot of thought put into these characters of mine, so much so that I began to feel like their story was starting to breach the main story of the real main characters Nate and Izzy (even though Malcolm’s story didn’t involve them so heavily). So I had to step away from it for a while and focus on other things. Eventually though I was back at it, but at a fairly moderate pace.

During the whole thought process I was making “sprite doodles” of some of the characters, and not just my own. And with the doodles, there emerged some additional conceptualizing, primarily alternate wardrobes. Of the other characters’ alternate wear, I’m not sure if there’s been any potential influence, but perhaps it’s also because sprites aren’t the most detailed art form out there.

In any case, I decided to assemble the characters that were made for the universe and create similar sprite doodles for all of them. Some were a bit challenging to do. But as you can see there’s already a fairly big, colorful cast…and this is just the assortment that’s been publicly shown here in deviantART. Who knows how many others are going to appear in the future?

If anything, I’ll try not to add too much more to the list myself. X3

Not sure if I'd be ready for the full load. At the moment I've come up with enough just for the characters I've created. X3

Sure, but I didn't intend on keeping it a secret forever. :3
