"Lightning Angel"
Race: Angel
Soul Color: Green / Teal (Wind family)
Magic: Lightning

My hopes and dreams illustrated. Seta has been a part of me since 2002. He represents everything I "want" to be: taller, stronger, handsomer... he is who I wanted to become.

He is a brash, violent angel, often rushing into a fight headfirst. He doesn't miss a chance to show off in front of others and often flaunts his great physical strength to onlookers. This also makes him very arrogant and vain as being born with the powers of electricity have given him a very Very.. one-sided advantage over others in battle. Earth, Wind, and even Fire born people have a hard time resisting him. Water users however, strike fear in Seta's heart. He came close to drowning in the ocean during the First Trial and he never recovered psychologically from it. This coupled with his own helplessness to save his floating homeland- Bolas from crashing into the sea has made him very spiteful of the world, the Judges, and blue souls...

Due to his soul's powerful choice of color, he tends to step on his enemies, often tossing them about only to throw them back down again. His recklessness and lack of empathy in battle allow him to shrug off most attacks, enduring blood-loss as he plunges his sword chest deep into his foes. His recklessness and violent temper often earn him the scoldings and wrath of his lover: Satomi, which he can do nothing to defend against. Despite his violent nature he reassures her that he hasn't lost his humanity. He lives by his own mantra... "If I don't rule the world, someone worse then me will..."

On top of being an angel and having the powers of electricity, Seta possesses a great weapon called Ahura Mazda: a magical blue longsword engraved with his personal halo that can be called to him for strategic attacks. Using the wind around him to manipulate his longsword, Seta can throw his weapon haphazardly into the fray and have it return to him like a boomerang. This coupled with his inner violence let him eviscerate, gore, and tear his foes apart out of shear hatred for them.

Seta is currently exploring the ruined world with his lover Satomi along with their guild. As much as she depends on him for her safety, he protects her more so then he does himself.  Together they strive towards one thing along with killing every Judge they meet: To rule the recently destroyed world... For you see... the world has already gone to hell... Cities toppled, countrysides wasted, people plucked from the ground devoured by their invaders... The strongest can reshape the world anyway they want... And for this couple from a lost land with nothing to lose, the dream isn't so far away now that most of the work is done for them...

Very well designed, and good proportions. Could use more shading and maybe show him grounded to give a more 3D feel. Maybe less emphasis on the specular or use variety on how its applied. For example, the armor has a different texture than his hair, show that difference when light hits them. If you can do all of that consistently, then everything will improve exponentially. With all that said, I am very impressed with your character design. There is nothing bad about your work. If you applied everything I suggested, it would only get better. I look forward to all you do in the future.

I like this pic it makes SETO look tuff yet approachable. I also like the lighting u got with what I am assuming is color pencils, I didn't know u could do that. Was the armor influenced by dragonballz or just similar. Either way I like it good job Will. From your bud Zach O

Thanks Benji~ I try to balance him out, even though he's a powerhouse

A lot of OCs are, the trick is to release the power as needed as opposed to overwhelming everyone with it at once.

Keeps them humble and powerful
