ATR Reference Compilation. by Endling ATR Reference Compilation. by Endling
I'm not entering ATR. :|

All right! Now that we have that cleared up. XD While thrashing about in the throes of art rut over the past few weeks, I decided on a lark to create some reference material for the characters I would have used if I were entering the Artists at the Ready tournament. (Seen here: :iconthereal-oct:)

This quickly got out of hand, and you see the result here. (And in the previous faux teaser I uploaded a bit before this.) But hey, art is art so why let it go to waste, eh?

It's a bit of a challenge creating ref sheets for characters who already have them, without sounding like you're telling simply the same information over and over again. And if you are, making it at least entertaining. Though one of these days I think I should make some sort of proper introduction for Oliver since he's never really been fully explained.

Some last minute details that didn't make it in:

Ree is from a story of the same name, no, it has not been released/published. Her song is "Ohne Zuschlag" by Din Stalker. She is a young girl possessed by hell itself and, in the ATR universe, would more than likely be mortified knowing that there are so many other characters in the 'young girl + demons' vein that she'd likely be begging me not to write a story about her.

Oliver is from no story, to clear that up once and for all. He was created for an OCT that never ended up happening. Now he is an orphaned character looking for a home with what is possibly the most frightening puppy dog expression a human being could make. (Yes, he's human.) His song is.. hell I dunno. Vindaloo? Look it up on youtube. XD

Rigg is from an old, old old storyline of mine entitled Jaoh or City of Jaoh. It never got too far along the lines, seeing as how futuristic stories aren't entirely my cup of tea, but he was a good character I enjoyed very much, and would definitely like to show more of him, his companion the Bug, and their buxom overseer, the Psycher Victoria. His song is the Hell's Laboratory theme from FF6. Haha.

Anyway. Back to work.

Ree W, Oliver A, Rigg `Endling

in my opinion, you should really enter these 3 in some future OCT's. Especially Oliver, a real interesting man he is.

And I had a felling that Ree might have been able to enter in Godfall

Such a lovely character sheet! I love how original and dynamic your characters are, and the sheet displays their personalities very well. I particularly like the overall layout, and the questions at the bottom.

May I perhaps take a leaf out of your book and have a similar layout for a character sheet of my own? The overall skeleton of the ref is what I am talking about, and where everything is blocked in. :)
