If I recall correctly, I created this character during a livestream in the Amaru discord server that I helped host about creating characters.
I actually have gotten quite attached to this OC and have drawn him in several other illustrations. I’m not totally happy with his clothes so I’ll probably redesign him later.
Minimaid has helped develop this character further by roleplaying him as the investigator in our first Guild Night RP event.
Character Name: Cyrus Skyllo
Character Age: 28
Character Species: Paperdemon
Hair color: Purple

Skin color: grey

Cyrus likes to be alone. He has trouble connecting with others and often is misunderstood by others in his life. He experienced trauma in childhood, something he doesn’t talk about. So he’s often very cautious around other people because he finds it hard to trust him. He likes to spend a lot of time researching and gathering information before taking on a task. The more prepared he can be, the more comfortable he is. If he doesn’t have enough information, he can get really agitated or fearful and run away from the situation.
It is unknown which portal is his homeworld. But maybe one day he’ll feel comfortable opening up to others about it.
Jerle and Willow rappel down to investigate the rootways underneath the city. They discover a portal underneath the city is draining power away from Aridin’s orbs. Adrian, the Black Bandit is nearby and Willow suspects he’s behind all this given how suspicious he looks. But Adrian is just there to investigate the situation too.
You trace the energy drain to its source– somewhere down in the city below. The roads themselves feel rich with energy, and you discover that the power has sunk beneath the surface of the city down into the roots below. To your surprise, you discover intricate, recently grown tunnels of roots that stretch under the city in a complex labyrinth. Who has built them? Why? How are they taking the orb’s power? Draw or write about your character investigating the root tunnels below the city. Your piece must include your character and either the root tunnels or those responsible for them.
Here’s a new NPC I’ve created for the PaperDemon Art RPG. Her name is Keziah Amin. I still need to flesh out her personality. I have some basic traits written down but she’ll probably get more fleshed out through role play in some upcoming PDARPG events.
We’re going to introduce a new traveling merchant mechanic on the site soon where you can get discounts on some featured items for a limited time.
This is the original art I made in 2001. Back then my art had a lot more Akira Toriyama influence. You can see the basic concept I had for weapons in the game exited from a long time ago. The background in this art was generated by Kais Power Tools if I remember right. I wasn’t very good at making backgrounds back then.
And this is the redrawn version with a background I drew and painted myself. Jerle’s clothing was redesigned a couple years ago to look a little more interesting by having tails and an asymmetrical design. Usually I don’t draw his hair this long though.
I rarely do redraws. I’m really happy with how this turned out and may do another one.
As for life updates, I had a baby in February! I should probably make a post about that. I’m also struggling with postpartum depression. Need to make a post about that, too.
Some day I’ll make a good habit of posting to here more consistently.
