"Male Fighter 02" by: :iconbobbistock:

Hey, everybody! I posted something dark! I'm so dark and something is wrong with me so I'm taking advice and I'm going to use sticks and bricks to KILL MYSELF!!! :dummy:

Anyway...:giggle:

Here is the last official picture of 2010 (even though I still have a small backlog of pieces from 2010 I need to post), depicting an old character of mine from 2001 named Shrapnel (Yes that is his real name and I'm not changing it). I originally created him to serve as a relative of a character belonging to my Ex-boyfriend, so he shares some attributes with that character (that is, if my Ex even still draws and writes stories like he used to). Thanks to ~BlackDove42 Shrapnel has some new origins. She also suggested I give Shrapnel something like a "Double Shoulder Socket," which made the alignment (or lack thereof) of his arms a little easier to draw. besides, if Hindu people can do it (a la Shiva), then so can I, right? :D

I don't see Shrapnel and *screamin-jazzy's Joshua Craig getting along well at all. Yay! Mortal Enemiesez! :la:

Shrapnel hails from a semi-aquatic and rather amorous four-armed race known as the Kardozo, who have origins via Alchemy in Venice during the Italian Renaissance. Over the centuries, the Kardozo have migrated to every [warm] corner of the Earth, usually taking residence in sewers or along shorelines in seaside caves. They never revealed themselves to humans simply because humans fear what they do not understand.

When the first wave of Apocalypse came to pass, the Kardozo found they no longer had a reason to hide, and begin work as bodyguards and concubines for the rich and powerful.

While not interested in him sexually, the Anti-Christ known as Damien Lucifer hired the Kardozo known as Shrapnel to be one of two personal bodyguards when his Four Horsemen were out culling the planet for renegade Neo-Children. He was impressed by Shrapnel's ability to immobilize his opponent with his pheromone and then flay them alive in a matter of seconds. :devilish:

If there's enough interest, I may allow people to make their own Kardozo, but you have to follow certain guidelines when it comes to appearance. :D

Real Name: Shrapnel
Designate: Shrapnel (Why mess with perfection?)
Title: N/A
Race/Species: Kardozo
Gender: Male
Occupation: One of Damien Lucifer's Two Personal Bodyguards
Birthday: October 27, 1501

Dislikes: Joshua Craig, smelling of the gutter, not getting laid.

Extra Information

His pheromones have never worked and probably never will work on Hotaru. This is probably due to her being part machine...or her Nanites.

Also, Shrapnel's pheromones will not work on Morpheus, possibly because his mutated "Metafluke" genes have rendered him one of the Living Dead. The same can be said for other denizens of the "Living Dead" such as Nurse Carla, Hughbert Gallowsmere, and Mateo HallowAxe.

On the other hand, when/if Dr. Ryan is exposed to Shrapnel's pheromones, he is driven into an uncontrollable rage (and STILL no boner; only Mel can do that) at which he tries to kill his target (i.e Shrapnel himself) as well as anyone unlucky enough to get in his way.

An overdose of Kardozo pheromone CAN kill a normal human in seconds (since being exposed to Kardozo pheromones is the equivalent of an Ecstasy trip). :la:

Is has been theorized by multiple scientists that, if Shrapnel and Felicity ever had sex, the mixing of their pheromones would create a "Super Plague" that would wipe out the entire Earth's population, including humans, demons, and animals, Most Sea-Life, and most Plant Life.

I figure Alexi's going to be pretty immune to his pheremones also, I'm toying with the idea of making him UBER dead and withdrawn from everything except BEO and Beluxi, due to the whole magical pixie episode kicking his nasty black sqiudlings into overdrive XD

Oh lord. Super Plague does sound fun, doesn't it. Watch Nazaroth and some of the Annunaki come from Nibiru and say "Have sex and destroy the word...Now."
I just got this image in my head of Morpheus and Alexi sitting in front of Shrpanel being like.

Morpheus: *to Alexi* "What are we supposed to be feeling again?"
Shrapnel: *sigh* This is impossible.
Alexi: *to Morpheus* Ah...I uh...suggest that we run."
Morpheus: Why? *sees Ryan foaming at the mouth running towards Shrapnel* Oh, I see...*crawls off*

Dude, it would be awesome if you made one! :XD: I can send you a note with the "Appearance Guide" since they have set colouring and whatnot. They're not all blue. :XD:

Sweet. I just replied to the RP finally. Do you think Shuao would try to import items from Hell to make money? :XD:

lolz. I did something stupid and traded off my Ninja Headband for some items I THOUGHT I could make a decent profit from, but no sadly. ^.^;

Oh, I've heard of him...er...her...never actually talked to them though but I liked their avi.
I usually only stick around the Exchange and the Achievements forums. How did you get the "Invisibility" Achievement without idiots in CB screwing you up? O.O;

well he claims to be a male, he claims to be a male SnM expert and a big deal in the gay community ect... but he doesn't have a clue it's like WTF and he RP'd with me a it but then it was URRGH and he claimed I was not very creative but it's like O.O; do you have any concept of human anatomy!?!?
um, well I just wrote: "My Friends only" in the title at a time when YOU were my only friend, then wrote something that the average fucktard would not want to click on ...

lolz. I might just wait until the Rainy Day goes up again before I sell it. I was going for 5 million, now it's going for about 3 million. I made a rainbow RAPE avi, but I need to sell off my Fremare's Guard before I can make it. It's worth (not counting the items I already have for it) about 650k. :sweat:
I should have just old my Ninja Headband for a straight 8.5 million. ^.^;

You? Not very creative? Er...?You're one of the best I've RP'd with because you're creative and thinking of new ideas. What the Hell. O.O;
And what time would you say would be a good time to try? I thought about maing a thread that would be titeld something like "DOn't post yet I'm setting up!" or something. Do you think if would work? :D

Err... that would be weird to be killed by a super pheromone. In some way. But since you said it was like ecstasy trip.... yeah. Still quite the irony of two beings having sex would destroy all live instead of the usually repopulating it.

You seems to like blue beings too. This one looks good. And menacing. I've to say this... he reminds of Shredder... but just his blades. But he must be a great with those or he could cut himself while moving an arm and another.

Happy New Year! Again.

Well, you have to keep in mind Shrapnel's race were engineered via Alchemy and Felicity is of the same Mutant Race as Dr. Ryan, Rizo, Craven, Khloe, Van Gloria, and Morpheus. So parts of her are highly toxic. ^.^;

I'm not sure why I like blue skin so much. I guess because its pleasing to the eye and doesn't look overly alien.
As for Shredder, his weapons were inspired by him. I was original going to give him bucklers, but those didn't look dangerous enough. :D When you are born with multiple arms, it's pretty easy to learn how to move them around without having them bump into one another. :D

Happy New Year to you too! ^O^

People that are born with just two arms and legs still get pretty easily bump to their own arms and legs. Just think of the numerous show on tv about people getting dumbly hurt.

Good thing they don't have shredder weapons. They would be on ER, Gray's Anatomy or simple in the news. Yeah... they would be famous a different way... in a different show... but still the dumb way.
Oh yeah... why I forgot YouTube?

Still cool character.

But what if as you get older and you learn not to. I figure it's likes coordination when you're a toddler, you bump into things and trip as first, but as you grow and develop, you learn to well, coordinate. :D

Well... you can still trip or stumble on something. And with the number of video cameras in compacts and cellphones, people would wait that very moment to immortalize you making a of fool of yourself. Mostly if you're an martial art practiser or gymnastic. Or simply your friend. You can be coordinate, but you can be clumsy sometimes.

My pleasure about Facebook. Now you know how I look.

I'm not sure tbh! :faint: Seemed to me like that from his legs it looks like under the pants there's something with his skin/flesh. Then again is most probably the lighting and my lack of sleep. You made him..you know him better than anyone. xD.

And you're welcome! i can tell why he likes "More" he has such a dominant look at his face,the eyes are incredible!

No? She's wearing normal pants and probably combat boots. Maybe its because his pants are a bit baggy (they can't all wear skin itght leat you know. ;P ). He doesn't have any missing flesh, although Damien's other body guard has a frakton of scars. :o

You know, I'd love to show you a drawing of Helena, but I have SUCH a hard time drawing a four-armed person. >.< Makes me sad. I will show you sometime soon!!!! She's pretty fun to play as in TTGs as well. She uses ninja blades(I used to know the name of them) in her upper arms, and those serrated knifes for her lower arms, and she would stab the swords into her enemies shoulder blades, and stab away with her other arms in their chest/gut/lower regions, wherever, and she would use her tail blade to stab their face and stuff. She was fun to play I say!!

She sounds interesting. Does her particular race have a name? :meow:

You know I really don't know. The group she was with always called rat-monkey. I'd love to give her race a name, I can't think of one.

Lets see...I know she has 4 arms, a long quick like tail, long ears. Sharp teeth, retractable claws, and immunity to acids and stuff. So I have noo idea.

I'll start working on her in pro sketch thing..trail program I has.

Well done! I like how you got the arms to come out. There's something different about his face that you've managed to capture, something totally different about his face from many of your other characters. I also like that the definition under his clothes is a little muted. You know that he's ripped underneath, but it's not so obvious.

Well done!
