Ryona Karuzina, Guardian of Wisdom (2014) by Guardian-Ryona
Ryona Karuzina, Guardian of Wisdom (2014)
A long updated version of Ryona. Though the appearance is pretty similar, there are a couple of major differences to the character:

Seraphim Broach: Decided to tone down on its appearance to make it simpler than the previous version, though it still functions the same.
Millennium Disk: Decided to scrap the Millennium Puzzle because it was too crowded by Ryona's chest/neck with the Broach and Dog Crystal included. Instead, Ryona uses an off-cast Millennium Item (my own creation) known as the Millennium Disk. It takes the shape of a band worn on his left wrist and takes the form of a Duel Disk when a Duel commences. Likewise, because it is a lesser known item, it holds the powers of the Shadow Realm, and thus, Ryona can use attacks like 'Mind Crush', though not to a powerful degree like the original Items.

There's more "updates" to my character to come, such as a newer appearance to the Crystal of Virtues and its polar opposite, the Crystal of Vices, as well as a new appearance to the Sword of Light, which after doing some mythological research, is actually called the 'Claíomh Solais', a mythological sword in Irish folklore (That's not to say that Ryona is part Irish XP)

Byakko no Kogenta by Guardian-Ryona
Byakko no Kogenta
An all pencil sketch of Kogenta of the Byakko from the Onmyō Taisenki as he appears in the Anime.

I was able to get this done thanks to the abundant downtime I often come across at work. Since I cannot bring my laptop anymore to write stories (except on days where I work alone on a certain day), drawing is the only alternative. At first, I wasn't sure who to draw, and so here I am with one of my favorite Shikigami characters.

Kogenta is a Byakko, one of the three Shikigami of Trust that govern the Autumnal Equinox of the Lunisolar Calendar. Byakko means "White Tiger" in Japanese, and is associated with one of the four Great Gods of Japan; the other three being Genbu (Black Tortoise), Suzaku (Vermilion Bird), and Seiryū (Blue Dragon). Kogenta's appearance is youthful and his personality boastful and cocky. In the Manga, his appearance is different, which I may draw for comparison later; how he came to the way he appears in the Anime? I won't tell. XP

I should draw this guy more often; not only will he (and the Onmyō Storyline) have some kind of place in my Battle of Fantasies story, but his design is actually simple despite comments by the writers of the Manga.

Hi everyone. Forgive my absence from DA for the long time...it's been very hecktic and busy in my life as of late, especially with my job holding me down.

I'll be able to come on here more often now that I finally have someone else working with me at my job.

For those who don't know, let me explain: I got a job working at Advance America back in February of this year. In May, not long after I completed all my training, my boss resigned for a better job, leaving me to operate the store by myself for the past 3 months. Now a new manager has been hired and now I'll be able to have days off again. During my loneliness at work I've been slowly breaking the creative block that has diminished my artistic output. Eventually, I hope to get as active as I was back when I started.

So yeah; just to let you all know, I"m not dead XP

Hey, another friend of your mate, ~Shdtfh. He isn't mad at you and it never was you. He was just frustrated with his laptop and also his tiring day after work probably added to his anger with it. It happens, I did the same thing accidentally to my mate too...

I know how Wolfger feels. He is genuinely sorry. It was a mistake, that is all. Please at least send him a note or something. He is VERY worried about you. :( He loves you dearly. Give him a second chance?

Hiya, i'm a friend of :iconShdfth:. I can understand how annoying it is to use MSN, but it worked for me and I guess it didn't work for him, so that's why he yelled. He said he's gonna use Skype/YIM, and he's afraid he might be losing you. Hope you can forgive him.
