Legends: Sitra, Guardian of LightSitra has always been one of the more popular Guardians to praise thanks to the power of light when it comes to healing the ill and injured. Throughout every incarnation, lessons are left behind to teach those capable of harnessing the light to heal their fellow being. The understanding of the light energy that the world produces only continues to advance and many are eager to see what the full capability of it could be in the future.Legends: Sitra, Guardian of Light by GameFreak38
However, the current incarnation of Sitra has become particularly fascinating due to beliefs about her origins. Most Guardians' origins are usually never determined, but citizens from the nation of Novine are certain that they know where she hailed from.
Novine itself is amongst the most powerful nations in the world, thanks to wealth and the strong backing of a military that's used for defense. The ruler of Novine was also amongst the first to institute the ban on blood magic research following the situation with Leon Nightfire an
Legends: Leon NightfireThe Lord of Armageddon. King of Demons. The Fallen Nightfire. These are only some of the titles that had been given to the king that brought an end to the island country of Tirian, a once prosperous nation. Now, his legacy is left behind to be told in stories as well as in laws enforced around the world.Legends: Leon Nightfire by GameFreak38
As a child, Leon Nightfire was the heir to the throne, ready to take over the country that his family had ruled for the better part of three centuries. Shortly after his birth, he would undergo intense routines of studies, physical fitness and swordplay. He was going to be a great leader under the guidance of his parents and the instructors they personally chose. He would be given little time to rest. There was so much for him to learn. Military history and tactics, world politics, and ship navigation were only some of the numerous subjects that he would study. Every day left him exhausted, but he would have to keep going the
Legends: Ixir, OverseerHow he came to be will likely forever remain a mystery, but most on Espherat could say that they feel his presence whenever they come near where the dead lay. For as long as history has been written, it is known that a single entity takes the role of watching for those that have passed and moved on into the spirit realm. Ixir, the Overseer, takes pride in his work, protecting those that have made the passage from the physical world.Legends: Ixir, Overseer by GameFreak38
Ixir is considered to be immortal, as illustrations and sightings from throughout history have showed little change in him over the course of millennia. What appears to be an animated corpse, Ixir isn't afraid of making his presence fully known when the time comes. Unlike the Guardians of the world, Ixir makes his appearances frequent and often answers the calls of those wishing to summon him. This, along with his abilities, make those revere him almost to the level of Espherat's Guardians. A tower is built in every major

The door to Edge's room slid open as the commander walked inside. He examined his quarters and sighed as it locked behind him. The day was long and he was glad to finally have a moment to himself. Now was the chance to get away from the routine of paperwork, meetings and planning.
Things have been finally starting to work in his favor again. The alliance that Carson was able to help establish was exactly what Red Eye needed. Together, their forces were sharing secrets and growing together. Soon, he could finally begin what he has been planning. He just hoped that all involved will see them through the end. For now, he needed the time to himself.
"Good evening, Edge," his AI announced. He had been tweaking it, making it more advanced. It was now fully capable of having a conversation like a normal being.
"Good evening Minerva." Ed

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I have been a member here since March 29. 2006, so about 9 1/2 years.
What does your username mean?
Frankly, I know my username isn't particularly great. At the time of it's creation, it was just made to show my enjoyment for gaming and the 38 came from a combination of the numbers of my two favorite NASCAR drivers at the time when I was interested in the sport. Now, it remains since I have had this moniker for even longer than I have been a part of DA.
Describe yourself in three words.
Too, few, words. Seriously though: kind, passionate, developer
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
It's no longer part of my gallery, but it was the first chapter of the first story I wrote called Team Chaos. It was a fanfiction story that involved characters from the Mario, Sonic and Star Fox universes and myself as a character. Honestly, looking back, I'm not too proud of those old stories, but I shall never forget my beginnings. In the end, they were still fun to see to their completion.
Currently, the oldest deviation still in my gallery is one of my first entries to the Legends series.
Legends: Team DragonTeam Dragon is a famous team that is known worldwide. Their abilities are incredible and vary from each member. Each member comes from several unknown locations. The team used to be under the command of Iso the Dragon, but he gave his commander position to Ella the Dragon. The team always travels together in their quest to protect all peace. Recently the team took part in working in several operations with Team Chaos and the Nintendo Agency. They worked for the agency part-time for a couple of years and took part in some of the most famous operations in history. When the team was deployed to combat operations, Ella and Iso were always made the operations commanders for all combat operations in the region if Team Chaos was not present. The team's use of elemental abilities provided them large advantages in combat. They always worked in major combat operations against Dr. Eggman while they
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Writing, of course! It used to be be nothing but a hobby, but it has turned into a passion. Be it working on my own novels, creating new characters or establishing worlds and their lore, there is so much to do and enjoy!
Midnight II: Abduction
The roar of a humvee's engine pierced through the surrounding tranquility as it drove deeper into the forest that sat outside of Jatia. Its all-terrain tires proved to be a worthy challenger to the bumpy dirt roads, even as it drove at high speed. Some small animals quickly flew, leapt or ran off the road before they could be smashed by its tires.
Inside the vehicle, three soldiers, all wearing sunglasses and standard forest camouflage, were sitting quietly as heavy metal played from the speakers. The soldier in the back seat, Jason, pressed a nearby button to roll down his window and tossed his cigarette out. He then proceeded to roll the window up again.
"You made sure that thing was out, right?" Matt, the driver, asked in a slightly annoyed tone.
"Yeah, yeah, I did," Jason responded before rolling his eyes. "What are you, my mother?"
"Wouldn't it just have been easier to leave it in the ashtray then?" the commanding officer, Reaver asked as he turned his hea
Legends - Crystal NightshadeWith Earth becoming little more than a barren wasteland that constantly was losing any sense of life, there were only pockets of civilization that remained. Those who chose not to go to any of the many planets that had been colonized in the centuries struggled to maintain an ability to survive. However, for many, it was also the source of a thrilling lifestyle. Even as a government still claimed that it had control of what life remained on the planet, most citizens took it upon themselves to do whatever they placed, confident that the government had no power to control them. Earth was now a haven for bandits, the allure of the life managing to successfully entice others to come to the desolate planet.
Crystal Nightshade lived at one of the remote settlements. Like many other outlaws, she was a troublemaker from a young age. Throughout her life, she would have run-ins with the law and was arrested on a few occasions. Her stints in whatever quali

Chapter 4: Moon's Fate
This was the first time that Zira got to walk through the torch-lit halls of Moon's Fate. Hopefully, this would also be the only time. She took deep breaths on occasion, feeling the intensity that was building the air. She could feel her heart thumping against her chest. Was it uneasiness? Excitement? Some combination of the two? She couldn't be sure.
She turned around to see Cassandra looking over everything, still keeping her famous smile. Zira envied her for that. Even in a time like this, she remained as positive and cheerful as ever. She was glad to have the wolf by her side. Together, they will succeed and finally leave Vaz.
The hallway ended at a large, wooden door. Zira took hold of the handle and pulled it open. It made a terrible sound as it moved, just like all old doors. Inside, there was only a single individual, the quarte

Requiem Resort and Spa, Veron Mountains. March 5, 2017, 1951 hours.
The air felt brisk as Laura and Midnight stepped out from their respective changing rooms. It was still too early for the warm spring temperatures to come in, but the lack of wind allowed them to enjoy some time outside anyway in what they felt was flawless weather. It was the perfect time for the two to enjoy a nice, quiet moment together. Clover was kind enough to watch Xavier and Lindsay for them so that they may enjoy this evening.
The Requiem was recently opened a couple months ago to serve as a luxurious, yet affordable resort. Midnight had instantly decided to treat Laura to this place after learning of this place a couple weeks ago. He had managed to reserve a private pool, ensuring that they have their peace together.
Midnight turned to the side to see his wife standing nearby. She was examining herself, hands on her distended st
Character Creation TutorialCharacter creation is one of the most enjoyable aspects of being an artist or writer. This is where creativity can truly thrive as a person's imagination shines at its brightest as they form an image of a character that they find special. No matter what kind of art interests a person, characters tend to bring the depth needed to hook the viewer is looking for so that they can focus on the visual or literary piece.
Anyone can create at least one character if they put their mind to it. This tutorial will assist you in setting up your own character(s) that you may enjoy for as long as you wish.
Why make a character?
As previously stated, a character serves high importance in creating a memorable piece of art. Of course, this is not always the case, but that varies depending on the genre that you, the artist or writer, specialize in. Character creation is also an effective way to keep the creative juices in the brain flowing as
The Fiddler on the RiverThe sun had set outside the Gold Koi in Witway, a pub that had become the most popular destination within the town. The thick walls of the structure were constructed in hopes of keeping things quiet for the neighbors built along the river, but even they failed to contain the noise that was erupting from within. The pub was overflowing with patrons, an occurrence that has only increased in frequency. Citizens of the town kept moving in and out as the night went on. The ruckus of celebration echoed into the silent night air.
Inside, the bar was divided into three distinct areas. Most of the space was dedicated to the dining area, while the bar was positioned along the southern wall. Back in the corner of the dining area, a small stage had been constructed, joined by several long tables to allow patrons to enjoy the nightly performances. Tonight, a regular performer was on the stage, one that had been playing every night in recent memory. Ky
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Anthro art (probably digital), either in a cartoony style or semi-realistic with a unique style to it.
What was your first favourite?
To be able to comment on her art was among the reasons to get me involved in this site. She wasn't the only artist I watched immediately upon joining, but her art was the first to be faved.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Hm, of the thousands of pieces I have faved, most of them would have to be either anthro or fan art. I'm not particularly picky about what I fav as I tend to fav things from a variety of genres, as long as I like it or think it looks good.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
This is pretty much impossible for me to say. There are too many fantastic artists that I have gotten the pleasure of knowing over the years.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I have gotten the pleasure of meeting several people from here thanks to this site, which can be reviewed in the following journal entry.
DA ReflectionsIt's been a long journey so far here on this site and today, I feel like looking back over everything that has happened during the years that I have been here.
I still remember why I joined this community back in March of 2006. I had been browsing it for months prior, primarily taking in the fan art made by artists in the Yoshi and Sonic communities. There was so much to see, so much that could be done. Before joining, I was only on fanfiction.net for about a year or two. I had decided that I wanted to try and reach a larger audience, to showcase what I had at the time. Soon, I was a member and immediately started submitting my work, faving art and meeting people. Among those that I first I watched were :iconanjilasaurus: :iconardwick: :iconrowiehz: (on their old accounts) and :iconDaxxe:. Naturally, I was a bit nervous at first, but as time went on, the desire to become an integral part of the community would grow. They may have been the
However, there are still many more that I would love to actually meet one day if the chance shows itself. This includes the likes of users that I have known for years, such as , everyone else that I have mentioned in the above journal and more I'm sure!
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
The biggest impacts from fellow deviants probably came from outside the site. Thanks to some, I found my passion for helping as many as I can.
However, to see all these great artists and their unique creations, it only furthers my drive to make a legacy of my own with my creations. Yes, literature isn't the most popular stuff on this site, but I never let that stop me from continuing to do what I love doing.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Wordpad/Microsoft Word, Adobe Creative Suite, game engines such as UDK/Unreal Engine 4, Cryengine 3 and more.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Inspiration can come anywhere, anytime for me. Be it at home, at work or elsewhere, a random idea can appear and I find myself developing it. Things like other people's art and music tend to also help get me inspired as well.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Probably when I was most active here (2007-2009). The community was especially lively back then and it was that time period that I got the chance to meet many of the friends I still talk to today!
