Holly-character sheet by Ryanide Holly-character sheet by Ryanide
Wehheheheh...this is the main character for my Sheezy exclusive series about high-tech ninjas. You here at Devart will get the character sheets, but not the actual drawings or anything else that's related to the series. Don't worry, Sheezy doesn't get Dendyn. So it's even.

As usual, my inspiration points are as obvious as anything...I'll admit that the style was greatly inspired by extvia's beautiful works.

The concept is a different story altogether. I was playing Metroid Prime hunters demo the other day and I thought: "Hey, Samus is a lot like a ninja! I mean...she fires a lot of projectiles, she looks a bit like a ninja, she can wall jump, air jump, curl into a ball to hide from enemies, climb walls in ball mode, uses bombs and fire...has night vision and stuff..." It then got me thinking about Shinobi (the game for playstation) and how cool those ninjas were. I then I was still recovering from extvia's ethereal techno style and I had this weird vision of all these bubblegum high tech ninjas running around a huge city and just had to do something with it.

What you get is something that looks like a cross between Shinobi, Metroid, some MMORPG, Naruto (not that I've ever seen Naruto mind you) She: The Ultimate Weapon, Starfox and Xaiolin Showdown. The thing about this series is that it's going to focus on the aesthetic qualities of ninjitsu rather than the actual fighting. There's going to be a lot of friendly fun between the ninja guardians that include them playing little games with each other such as base jumping and Follow The Leader...only ninja style.

But there will be plenty of fighting, but not necisarrily violence. Hard to explain, but I have big plans for this.

Holly is (C) Ryanide, do not distribute or steal.

She seems pretty cool. All spells must say "ninja" or "ninjutsu." Freaky eyes and great pooly tail. Love the long white scarf, definitely resembles Shinobi that way.

Never played or even seen .Hack before. This character wasn't created with that game in mind.

Ooh...really? I hope it doesn't look like I'm copying or anything...

heheh, you know what? this is a total case of coincidence in a way cuz some of the promos they had for the game even uses the same style BG you hav there, Right down to those honeycomb shape. Not only that but our other character is named Hack, right? Its freaky! :XD:

Meh, there's no need. The visual style and one character's name isn't enough to make this a "rip off" of anything. And H@x doesn't make as much sense, a Hax is a cheater, not a computer whizz.

Why thank you. It's not supposed to be a christmas theme, just the colour sceme based off the holly plant. You know, because the leaves are spiky, but it still looks lovely when the berries are there. Just like the character, she's pretty but she can also be thorny and tough like the leaves on a holly bush.

Thanks! All the ninjas in this series are going to have uber bubblegum high-tech armour. Holly's is actually the most basic type: there's a hacker ninja who can traverse cyberspace, a ninja who has posessed armour, a ninja who has living armour, a completely cybornetic ninja and many more! I just have to take time to design them.

And the element thing is nothing like Pokemon: the elemental unity is a real thing I got out of an old ninja book my friend gave to me. It basically determines mentality and fighting style. Wind ninjas try to stay moving and outmanuvre their opponents through motion and speed, Fire ninjas continuously try to overwhelm their opponents with graduating power, Earth ninjas stand, defend and deliver and water ninjas use thier flexibility and cunning to outsmart their enemies and punish their mistakes through mind games and foul play.

There's a chance I could have gotten wind and water mixed up, because they're very similar, but I'm absolutely sure of fire and earth.
