Chernobyl-Curs Reference. by OkalianDreamsAreDead Chernobyl-Curs Reference. by OkalianDreamsAreDead
They are entered into: [link] !

Full view, please.
Personalities are still developing.
Edit: I've added the scars in the hope that it will help aid others in identifying which brother is which.

-----

Name: Nikolai - “Nik”
Age: 3
Gender: Male
Species: Canine - Borzoi
Abilities: Can feel any injury dealt to his brother, like it was his own. For example - If Viktor was cut, Nikolai would feel the pain of the cut, without actually being cut himself. Can continue to fight throughout the sensation - however, if the injury dealt to his brother was serious enough, he would be immobilized for a short time [Around 15 seconds at most].
Strengths: Fast, thick fur protects against damage, and excellent vision. If there happens to be snow on the ground, he blends in perfectly.
Weaknesses: Poor hearing, weak jaw strength, and is very visible at night. His ability could also be considered a weakness - use to the best of your discretion - keep in mind that small injuries [cuts, bruises, ect.] to his brother would not faze him much, but large injuries [broken bones, serious bites to vital areas like the throat, ect.] would immobilize him for a short time [Around 15 seconds at most].
Personality: When Nikolai is separated from his brother, he is actually quite shy and is easily embarrassed or intimidated. When alone with females, he blushes furiously and stutters. He can be surprisingly insightful. He is the more serious of the two brothers.
History: -
Likes: His brother, Imogen, playing pranks, and swimming.
Dislikes: Being alone, being teased, and being sneaked up on.
Other:
- Nikolai’s hair [on the top of his head] is curved backwards. Think of a lower-case letter “n”.
- Nikolai has a "X" shaped scar on his shoulders.

-----

Name: Viktor - “Vik”
Age: 3
Gender: Male
Species: Canine - Borzoi
Abilities: Can feel any injury dealt to his brother, like it was his own. For example - If Nikolai was cut, Viktor would feel the pain of the cut, without actually being cut himself. Can continue to fight throughout the sensation - however, if the injury dealt to his brother was serious enough, he would be immobilized for a short time [Around 15 seconds at most].
Strengths: Fast, thick fur protects against damage, and excellent vision. If there happens to be snow on the ground, he blends in perfectly.
Weaknesses: Poor hearing, weak jaw strength, and is very visible at night. His ability could also be considered a weakness - use to the best of your discretion - keep in mind that small injuries [cuts, bruises, ect.] to his brother would not faze him much, but large injuries [broken bones, bites to vital areas, ect.] would immobilize him for a short time period [Around 15 seconds at most].
Personality: Viktor is loud and obnoxious. He enjoys cracking jokes, and tries not to take things too seriously. He tends to exaggerate a lot, especially in front of females ~ [Really ladies, it was THIS big]. He claims to be the older brother, and is very protective of his sibling.
History: -
Likes: His brother, Imogen, playing pranks, and sleeping.
Dislikes: Being scolded, being ignored, and being woken up.
Other: Viktor’s hair [on the top of his head] is curved forward. Think of the letter “V”.

-----

Name: Imogen - “Immy”
Age: 10
Gender: Female
Species: Avian - Bearded Vulture
Abilities: Being such a large bird, Imogen is able to carry small objects and animals.
Personality: Imogen is the voice of reason in the group. She is usually calm, and does not hesitate to speak her mind. She enjoys chatting with strangers, especially dogs that are around her height [or shorter]. Not much surprises her after all the time she has spent with the twins.
History: -
Likes: The twins, bones [to eat], other birds, little dogs, and flattery.
Dislikes: Being insulted, or anyone insulting the twins. Losing her temper.
Other:
-
The twins will occasionally coerce Imogen into spying upon other contestants for them.
- Imogen is rarely spotted in the air. She prefers to walk, or ride upon the back of one of the twins.
- Imogen has a jagged bite-shaped scar on her left leg.

-----

Other, other:
- They are twins.
- Nikolai and Viktor occasionally talk and move in unison.
- Origin of the scars: When Nikolai and Viktor were puppies, Imogen had attempted to grab Nikolai as lunch. Viktor was able to bite Imogen's leg, which caused her to release Nikolai.

Bring it on :iconchallengeacceptedplz:. Do you want details on how to defeat them? Extra infomation?

I was holding off replying to this message till I had a question :D, How hostile would you say Victor and Nikolai are, as in would they straight out try to kill my doggies? Or just knock them out or cripple them? Or even just do what they have to do, with minimum contact and try to evade them as much as they can? Big message sorry :)
Reply
:iconokaliandreamsaredead:
Killing would be their last resort.

I believe they would evade as much as possible; and try to attack either vital areas, or legs to try and immobilize the other dogs so they could get away safely.

If that needs to be elaborated, just ask. I'm not used to planning out "fighting strategies" yet. :3

Thanks so much, I really wasn't sure how vicious they would become, I got a plan in my head now.:D

Something thats been bothering me is people might not of noticed Cu sith's tail. It's actually plated from top to bottom, similar to the mythical dog I based him on. I sorry if I sound picky but I wasn't sure if I made it clear enough on the reference. :oops:
Reply
:iconokaliandreamsaredead:
I suppose I have the same question; would your boys outright try to kill mine, or have minimum contact? Ect.

Also, I read on your reference that Cu Sith doesn't actually like to hurt others - so would Buckshot do most of the fighting?

Now that you pointed out the braiding; I can tell. I might have missed it if you hadn't said it, though. :3

Buckshot would normally try to avoid killing his opponents, but would do his best to defeat them(render them unable to battle or complete the challenge; by knocking them out, trapping them for long enough to win, crippling them, scaring them silly, ect)

Buckshot WOULD do most the fighting, but Cu sith would follow any order given to him by Buckshot, and most especially Shotgun. He might be told to use is special powers from a distance while Buckshot attacks with that advantage, or be sent in full force while Buckshot completes the mission quietly or acts as backup.

While Cu sith doen't like to hurt others, he will when defending himself or if he was told to, though if he causes someone obvious pain and suffering he would hesitate, falter, mumble an apology or two or even begin to stir up his dibilitating mental issues.

I might have to draw another reference for each dog :D

Sorry to give you such a big message, I've been spending alot of time thinking about this :D

You chose the names at random right?

It's kind of hard to tell if people are upset over the internet or not. I haven't heard anything besides the "wow".


Yeah, I asked my friend for a Russian name and he said Nikolai.

I googled Russian names and picked Viktor from a list because I liked the whole: Nik' and Vik' aspect.

Welcome to the OCT! Your characters look great (except for the aforementioned part, as something as small as that can easily be overlooked or made impossible to tell do to stylization or pose) but there is one thing with the ref. It's kind of hard on the eyes ^^; The dogs are a very, very faint off white, their outlines are light grey, and the background is white. Maybe you could darken the outline or change the background color? Sorry that you've had so many comments ^^;

(also, if you don't mind me asking, why are you hiding all of your replies?)

:iconokaliandreamsaredead:
OkalianDreamsAreDead Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2011
Thanks.

I'm still trying to figure something out to add to them physically to help the other competitors.
Once I figure that out, I will probably darken the outline - because I have no idea how to darken the background without starting all over! Haha, I'm terrible with computers.

Nah, at first I was a little taken aback at all the comments - but I realize that everyone is just trying to help. I've never had to consider other people drawing my characters before, so it's all a learning experience.

[On a few comments, I accidentally double posted. I thought that the few that I hid due to double posting looked silly by themselves - so I just hid them all. If that makes sense. :3]

Building off of what Shinkoryu said, I'd try and add a bit more individuality physically than just the hairtuft. Even identical twins look different! I know a pair, and ones got a little scar on her cheek from the curling iron. Even something as simple as a scar, a bandage, bandana, different eye color, or a misplaced marking could make them a bit easier to tell apart.

I've never done anything like an oct before - so I really only took myself into account, but just because I can easily tell them apart, doesn't mean that other people can!

Thanks for the advice! I'll do my best to act on it.

The characters look balanced, just keep in mind that if people have to be forever checking the tiny hair tuft as the only way to differentiate the characters it will be hard to get into the story. We look for originality so the characters should display very clear differences from each other so that they are distinct individuals and not simply "the twins."

That said, we'll go ahead and add your reference to the group, and we look forward to your audition.

I will also try to think of something else to physically add to them to make them more like individuals.
