MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM ELENA EDEN AND DSNG!

This is a fan art poster that I was working on yesterday, while watching some NBA games...

Elena Eden is one of the sexy female characters from the DSNG Sci Fi Series; her personality is upbeat and humorous. Elena is a trusted ally of Prince Azzar and she made her debut way back in DSNG Book 1. And even though she often acts like a dumb blonde, she's extremely intelligent. More pics of Elena are archive in this past blog article, over Here.

To all the true DSNG fans, I hope you had a Merry Christmas!
And Thanks again for all your support!

EXPLORING DSNG PART 24 - CONCEPT ART OF THE OGRES AND DSNG BOOK 14!

When you hear the term "Ogre", chances are, your mind will drift to the World Of Warcraft and their green monstrous-looking beings. That can be viewed as one particular artistic vision. And even the classic cartoon from 1985, Disney's Gummi Bears, had a host of Ogres, while the 3D character "Shrek" is also an Ogre. And in the DSNG Sci Fi Megaverse, the Ogres do exist. But they are completely different, in terms of their genetics and appearances.

Here are some sample concept art posters showing Ogres that I gathered from around the web: 

 



So what is an Ogre? Simply put, the Ogres in DSNG are hybrid beings. Remember, in the DSNG tales, there are 7 major planets: Erion, Avera, Taran, Macur, Scalata, Planoris and Entrados. If you're familiar with this blog, then I'm sure that you've already met the four-armed Scalatans in the former articles; and you've also seen the Entradans in another archived blog post.
 
So the Ogres are actually a genetic mixture of Scalatans and Entradans. And this is where the unique style of the DSNG Ogres comes into play.
The Scalatans have horns, four arms, four eyes [or even six eyes] and sharp "dorsal spikes" on their backs that can sprout to yield Gargoyle-like wings. Plus the Scalatans have red, purple, magenta and even pink skin. Conversely, the Entradans have just two arms and two feet, while they can be endowed with mystic abilities; plus some Entradans are Lizardians. And the Entradans have red, blue, orange and golden  skin.
So when aliens from those two disparate races mate and produce offspring, the hybrid child ends up being stronger and tougher than his/her parents. And that mixed Ogre child may have multiple horns, two arms, four arms, four eyes, three eyes, or even just one central eye, etc.

Some Ogres are giants, while others are regular-sized humanoids. And they all have teeth that can morph into sharp fangs, at the speed of thought.

In the latest ebook DSNG Book 14, one of the main plots is an adventure that involves a small band of Ogres, namely Sokov Schwarz, Odesa Montegra, and Go-Ran. Two other Ogres introduced are named Zandin and Zamrah.

As you can see in the sci fi poster / wallpaper below, the DSNG Ogres are far more sophisticated in their appearance than the standard Ogres that you find in other video game and entertainment franchises. Remember that DSNG is set in a sci fi world; thus everyone and everything created has to fit, in terms of the technology that exists.

Most of the Ogres are usually considers as Entradans. and their home world Entrados is referred to as a Steampunk World, where dragons and draco-hounds exist like roaming wild horses, in certain regions. But of course, the magic spells projected from law enforcement units keep those wild creatures in check, so they don't wreak havoc on the populations within the city districts.

 As hybrid beings, the Ogres are not dumb and clumsy; instead they are extremely sharp and gifted. And whenever you see the word "gifted" in the DSNG tales, think of it as an acronym for: "having one or more super abilities".

Standing at 6 feet 8 inches tall, Sokov is a former high-school basketball player. And currently he's an ex-con and an independent mercenary. Odesa is Sokov's sexy girlfriend [although she calls him "Master" and the reason for that issue is explained in Book 14]. I know he looks cool and she looks sexy, but I must inform you that these two characters are actually.... ruthless villains.
Honestly, Sokov is a bad guy with a good heart; he's a villain, but he is a father and a thinker, who considers his opportunities very carefully... so he'll even work with the good guys, if he views such a partnership as a means to making immense profits.
Odesa is much younger than Sokov, while she has 4 eyes. They both have super-strength, plus some other special abilities. For instance, Sokov can see in the dark, while he has a mystical Super-mode ability tagged as Wild Coyote Reign.
 
On the other hand, Zandin is a hefty fierce guy and he's about 6 feet 10 inches tall. He has distinctive horns on his forehead, which help to make him more intimidating to his foes. Zandin is married to Zamrah, and she's a beautiful blonde four-armed female Ogre. As shown in the poster above, Zamrah is voluptuous and muscular. Plus she has a diamond-shaped birthmark in the core of her forehead, while she has golden skin like an Averan [and Zamrah gets to meet Azzar in the latest Book 14]. Zandin and Zamrah own a weapons manufacturing firm called Trigun Lancer Weapons Systems.  And they are both villains, who parade as corporate executives.
 
[Prince Azzar is shown on the right, manifesting his Super-mode ability, slightly similar to the Super-saiyan ability in DBZ]

Often my loyal fans forget that there are four different Scalatan clans, who have slight phenotypical differences. Plus there's an archived article that you should also check out, which shows another concept art poster with three female Scalatans, who all look different [HERE]. That blog link will open up in a new window, and the poster in that article helps to reinforce the fact that the Ogres can have a wide variety of appearances, due to the vast diversity within their ancestral gene pool.

[ Shown on the left is Prince Azzar and Lady Lizbeth, from the latest ebook. Lizbeth is a female Newteron]

Now you can see that the art style and concept of Ogres in DSNG completely differs from the Ogres that you find in WOW, or any other MMORPG fantasy world!

And remember, DSNG Book 14 is available now! --> Over Here!
[The ebook is 750 pages, Rated M for Mature]

1980s NOSTALGIA - THUNDERCATS VS HEMAN & SHERA!

Since I was born back in the 1980s, I was introduced to a host of cartoon series that were linked to techno-fantasy and anime themes. I've done blog articles on the Thundercats in the past and I even did some redesigns of Liono and his gifted anthro-pride.
There are lots of posters on the internet that put Liono against Superman and HeMan against Superman. I even saw a long discussion thread on "SheRa VS The Hulk"; and the fanboys just could not make up their minds on who would win.

Yet today, I was thinking about what would happen, if HeMan and SheRa were to take on all of the Thundercats in an all-out brawl! Thats the sort of Epic Battle you could turn into a hit cartoon series or even a blockbuster movie. Of course they are all heroes and in general, heroes don't get involved in death matches... not unless you're a team of Avengers or Xmen and you live in the Marvel Universe and you have nothing better to do.... then you just start a Marvel Civil War and kill each other for nothing :)

I've heard that The Avengers movie franchise will be heading in that direction eventually... its rather pointless to me; but hey, when the Marvel editors and writers run out of ideas, they do sh*t like that LOL.

Btw, the image on the left is from a Spanish Wildstorm comic series titled "Thundrecats perros de guerra" which was not released in the US.

Now back to Heman & SHeRa Vs. Thundercats. Picking a winning group in this battle-royale will be easier said than done; after all, HeMan and SheRa both have mystical swords, but Liono has the Sword of Omens, which has mystical powers of its own. Most fans always believed that Liono's sword could do more than he was aware of, peer the air of mystery that surrounded it. Plus the rest of the Thundercats, when they fight as a singular force, can be pretty hard to beat.
But if I were to really pick a winner, I'd have to go with... the guy who wears the hairy underwear: HeMan. He just comes across as a more experienced fighter, with elite level combat skills - as opposed to Liono, who is actually a kid at heart. Of course Prince Adam is a youth as well, but Heman has always been more mature than Liono.
His sister, She-Ra, will probably take on all of the other Thundrcats [Cheetara, Panthro, Tygra and WilyKit & WilyKat]. SheRa may get beaten up pretty bad, but she'll probably survive with the aid of her sword [which can change form into anything that she wants].
The other T-Cats [like Lynx-O, Pumyra and Bengali] are left out of the mix in this scenario. And their presence would probably change things significantly. And Honestly, if old-man Mum-Ra joined the fight with all the Thundercats... then they'd dial up 1-800-Ass-Whoopin. And Heman would definitely lose.

And in the words of Kurt Angle: Oh its true... its damn true! :)
