So this is an old drawing I did of my character, now named Sammacha.
(I did this back in 2007)
I was still learning to draw people at that time.
This is one of the first picture’s of her that I posted online (and one of my first digital drawings)
I know I have improved a lot more since this pic but I still like it
Even if its not the greatest picture it still holds a lot of value to me
As originally stated
“she lives in a world shrouded in miasma and flies on wings that can burn like fire.”
Why the character was created:
Sammacha is based off of me and was created when I was assigned an art project to make a character and a fantasy comic that resembles you and had X abilities that you chose from a list. The hardest part for everyone was that it had to look like you, so it had to be a person!
Everyone chose the basic and most common ones, flight, magic, and wielding of a weapon then made their character original. My character lives in a world shrouded in miasma, and flies with wings that can create fire. She can wield a sword and her can wounds excrete a toxic gas.
As well as Sammacha there were several other characters in the story and of course a ton of fantasy creatures.
The comic did get me an A, but beyond the grade, I was not satisfied with the final product as a whole.
My drawing skills weren’t that good and the story was weird because of the assignment, and there was much room for improvement. Though I did like some of the comic after it was handed in, it was basically lost forever as I never got it back. Maybe one day I will make a new one.
Anyways I used my character as an avatar all over the web and then she just sort of stuck. Though, she will never be finished, like me, will always be a work in progress…
