ravine- Mesadee ripper by nebezial ravine- Mesadee ripper by nebezial
in the old times after the fall of mergarand it became a common practice for tribes of early people to try and empower themselves with natural magic power that dragons posessed

what resulted was the drparture of old dragons from ravine lead by mergarands mate barahea, amontg the elder dragons that remained were four sons of mergarand eldest of whom was baran, it was he who taught mankind to use magic without dessecrating the remains of his kind

still in the fiva hundred years of intense experimenting new races were born, resiliant to furthen mutations their forms were stable and was retained through further breeding.

eldest two of these created races were the shivas, and sardaheim, but there were more that thrived in lesser mumbers

mesadee were a thriving race for a while till the fall of their city davana, after that they were hunted and for a while fetched high prices in slave markets. this humiliation of the race lasted for 37 years untill they raised against the humans that enslaved them and with the help of sardaheims they regained theifr freedom.

now they are mostly found in the sardaheim empire territories and have developped incredibla prowess oin battle relying on their finely honed combat arts that got them the name of rippers

now they are highly priced mercenaries and bountyhunters especially efficient in tracking mages and also the best choice for close combat save for shivas of master ranks

their weaponry is made to support their combat artsso a trained mesadee ripper can decapitate an opponent with a roundhouse kick and their handblades are most profficient in blocking and breaking enemy blades

racedefinition puts them between humans and sardaheim. some mesadee develop early stage dragontear making them a most profficient magic warriors

Any influences on Yukito Kishiro for this one? She reminds me so much of "Alita on Motorball". :)

Very good work, as usual! Keep it up!

Hey man.

Yes, you got it. Take 1 minute to search on google for "Battle Angel Alita", and you´ll see how I mean they´re similar. But inded, I know your character is original, just thought about sharing. :)

Keep up the great work!

Yup, that's it. Battle Angle Alita is both an anime (pretty good) and a manga series (EPIC!!!). If you're into manga, and have the time, I seriously recommend it.

Here's a good place to start. [link]

Mind you, there are nine volumes at about 300 pages each, so it's not something you go through in an afternoon. Set some time aside for this one. XD

Also, BAA: Last Order is the follow-up series (currently at 100 chapters), since the author Yukito Kishiro had to end BAA a little too early to start work on another series his publisher wanted him to get started on. Just so you read them in the proper order. ;)

Oh, and here's a link for Last Order, just in case you get a taste for it. [link]

No prob. Always happy to spread the word about a great series.

I'm kinda hoping for some fanart in the future, but I'm not sure how much you're into 'tech'. Kishiro's cybernetics are very different from what I've seen of your style. Especially the later series (Last Order). Still, I'll keep my hopes up.

A interesting design of weapons that even might be usable (except if the blade is not from a very light metal, she may be quite unbalanced).

The armor is SICK! I love the blades on the boots and the ones on the arms are awesome... one question arises however. If these are close combat warriors whose style of attack consists of elegant kicks and spinning arm attacks, don't the blades make it heavy and awkward? Also they look like they would be the cause for a significant decrease in flexibility.
One more thing I noticed before clicking submit, The chainmail between her butt and her back... It looks a little off... maybe try to blend it better or add a decorative sash around her waist to cover up the weird little bit there.

ah yes the weight of the metal, okay heres the thing in ravine most of the armor and weaponry is made of tellas , molten and forged dragonscales of different level of hardness, flexibility and durability

tellas it light , essentially it is the weight of alluminum, higher grade tellas loses even more weight and is usually mixed with durstone to give it more weight when making weapons. weapons usually are weighted up to increase the battle kinetic momentum cause they would be just too light for armor penetration

NobleFiveJorge Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2011
Thanks for the reply! Very interesting backstory.... but what about the flexibility? It looks as though the way the blades and platemail are joined would have a significant impact on her ability to maneuver herself. Also, Why can't I find this comic book in Canada?

:iconnebezial:
nebezial Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2011
their blade boots are actually very firmly stabilised around their ankles, most of the blade stability comes from there

now as far as tellas flexibility goes, it depends on the amount off smittery work, longer work results in stronger armor with long flexibility, this is done through so called waterforge a special method where metal is heated up in steam ritch atmosphere that constantly fluctuates the amount of heat the finished product gets and depending on the length of waterforge treatment armor can become very tough and inflexible . this is usually done to strong armors and layered segmented plates

on the other end is tellas with bery little treatment applied to it, this gives a bare minimum of protectiveness from your standard physical attack but it does offer much greater magic disrupting trait cause tellas is made of dragonscales and is actually a natural deflector of spells


now as far as why you cant find the comic yet, its cause its coming out this year, spring to early summer, were currently in the process of setting up publishing scheduling as it isnt your average comic format, each issue is trade paperback size, on average 120 pages of fulla painted materials, 100+pages of comic itself+additional ancyclopaedic material
