So this is Alpha. A new character I had designed by the amazing Omocha-San. She is not a replacement for Cassie or anything like that so don’t worry. She’s not going to be a site mascot either she’s just a character I really wanted to see drawn.
If you don’t already know I am a creative writer and coming up with characters is something I do a lot of as part of that. In the last six months or so I’ve come up with dozens of character for my novel which is now over half finished. Cassie is one of the character from that novel and she is the only young girl from that story.
Alpha is a character from another story i’d like to eventually write. Again she is the only young character in that series. Now you might be wondering why I get the young girls drawn and to be honest it’s because I feel these two characters are my most creative and interesting to look at. Plus it’s easier to explain to an artist a more unique character then a simple one. Guy with armor and sword or women in regal dress can be interesting character on paper as they have personalities and do things but when seen as an image they can be boring to look at. At least for me anyway and I don’t really want to put a face to characters from my novel as I picture them as humans and not anime characters.
Sorry I went off on a tangent about character design there for a bit. So let me explain a bit about Alpha. She is a robot that takes the form of a little girl much like characters from Chobits or Time of Eve. I’ve come up with a story and I’ve even written a little bit but I better edit it before I upload it anywhere. When I upload that her personality will become more clear but for the time being I’ll say she is quiet, awkward and friendly for the most part. The other character in the story outshines Alpha at almost every way so this makes Alpha a bit jealous and competitive at times.
I know this post won’t be to everyone’s liking but I love doing this kind of thing on occasion as it mixes up the normal anime posts.
You can expect more art of Alpha in the future as well as some more Cassie stuff.
