Daughter of Bells by Turtle-Arts Daughter of Bells by Turtle-Arts
Preliminary character designs for a new story that I'm working on called "Daughter of Bells." Which I just came up with last night. XD Me and a friend were playing around with a random prompt generator. Like, the kind that takes set sentence structures and fills them in with random words? Yeah, one of those. And after having fun playing with it for a while, I got a random sentence with the phrases "Desert of ghosts" and "The daughter of bells" and my brain just exploded out this entire epic story over the course of like, 30 seconds. XD  So now it's a thing that I'm writing, and I had this flash of visuals with these two characters (and a few others, but these were the main two) being, the Daughter, and one of the Ghosts.

So yeah, new IP time. Tack this onto my list of stories that I'm working on. XD

This is really beautiful, and I've been looking for a good prompt generator to get my writing muse back but I havn't found a good one. What was the prompt generator you used, because it sounds like it could be quite good

I did some google-fu, and I THINK I found the one you guys were using. 

donjon.bin.sh/fantasy/random/#…

It's got "omens" and "graffiti" as options, as well as a weird name like you had mentioned. So, I'm pretty confident.

Oh I'm not only talking about this new story of yours. I've been seeing some drawing with quite interesting background stories. So I was wondering if you'll ever publish them somewhere for people to read. :)

Turtle-Arts Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Well, some of them are intended for eventual publication. But that's mostly the ones I don't talk to much about here on DA. Several of my characters were made for groups, and some of them I've adapted into stories, and some I haven't. So, I'm still kind of figuring it all out. XD

The ghost reminds me of some of the spirits in "Legend of Korra".

lol, I'll watch it at some point. I'm so bad about catching up with shows. I just finally caught up with Attack on Titan. And I've been trying to catch up on Adventure time, but I'm so far behind. >_< It's hard because I don't like to watch shows I haven't seen before while I draw, and since I draw a lot I don't watch a lot of t.v. XD  Or if I do, it's usually a movie I've seen so that I don't have to pay attention. XD

That's pretty cool!  Now I'm curious about what random prompt generator you were using.  :)

I didn't some searching online, but don't think I've found the one you were using yet.

You haven't by chance asked your friend about the site you were using?

The little girl's outfit is very well done and I love her blue eyes! The ghost's design is also very unique and I love the contrast of the red and blacks, not to mention the similarities of the two characters color scheme. It really feels like they're from the same world! I'm looking forward to seeing more of these guys and seeing more of this story as well! :)

Thank you very much! ^^ And yeah, I was going to do the girl in blue originally, but red just felt nicer and meshed with the ghost better.
