Character Cards and Modifiers
Character Description: He is a poor Dutch painter who struggles with mental illness– which may hint as to why he cut off his own ear. He’s not famous now, but he will be when people realize how crazy cool his art is.
I created this character using a combination of Illustrator and Photoshop. I chose a highly intense background to offset Van Gogh from his maniacal “Starry Night” background. I wanted to make Van Gogh look crazy since he cut off his own ear.
Character Description: Ancient Greek poet credited with writing down The Illiad and The Odyssey. He has put these incredibly long epic poems to memory and written them down for us to cherish always.
I wanted to make Homer seem more alive since he is a historical character that has no concrete evidence for his actual existence. I also wanted to make him look powerful, which is why I added lasers.
Character Description: A former chinese prostitute, she now roams the sea kicking ass and taking names as commander of nearly 40,000 pirates.
I created Ching Shih to look ghost-like since she was almost an omnipotent leader that commanded 40,000 men.
Modifier Description: With an extra ear, you can really gain some serious knowledge, thus allowing you to defend against any opponent better. ADDS 3 (defense).
I decided to create a bouquet of ears to echo Van Gogh’s lunacy in cutting off his own ear. I subdued the intensity of the background to make the ears seem more morbid.
Modifier Description: Helen’s beauty launched 1,000 and the Trojan War has broken out! Greeks have declared war upon the city of Troy. Double life points are taken from opponent. ADDS 4 (attack).
I wanted to make Helen seem like a strong force since she launched a huge war, which is why I put an alien-glow to her.
