TTOC Meme: Falconer by LilBluestem TTOC Meme: Falconer by LilBluestem
Yeah, this needed to happen. :) MEMES ARE SO FUN! but they take soooo long...

Cameo appearance by :iconblackxcanary:! I owe her a painting. It's still not done. XD

1. Yup. That's Falconer (Josh). He started out working with the Titans East, but he didn't get along well with Aqualad at first, who was the team leader at the time. (They got off to a bad start is all...)

2. Josh isn't a "glomping" sort of character...

3. So... Two things: 1) Witches (my witches) are born with a fractured soul. Eventually it splits (usually during childhood), at which point the other half of the soul (the familiar) takes a separate physical form. The splitting of the soul also releases the latent power in it, so this same event causes the witch's power to manifest. Also worth noting, witches are usually girls... More on origins of witches and this other stuff later. 2) The creepy internal glow would only occur during special circumstances, such as when the witch's power first emerges or when the witch is especially straining. According to my illogical BRILLIANT reasoning (which I'll spare you), the soul(/powers) are associated with the lymphatic system . Hence creepy glowing organs and ducts during supereffective power usage. :D :D *shot* I only mention this now because it might be important later.

4. Behold the owl-like glory of Jeshula! As far as Josh's powers, he isn't well-trained, but he can get the job done.

5. You might remember Freyja from that character dump I posted. They were childhood best friends whose feelings kind of morphed into something else, yadda yadda, except they stubbornly refused to acknowledge/admit that they had any deeper feelings for each other. And then Josh ran off, so that kind of ended whatever they had going on.

6. Leopard Seals are freaking scary. They're like seals with the jaws of a T-REX!!! So cool. XD Anyway, that's the familiar of the "scary lady" (a sea witch). She is responsible for traumatizing poor 8-year-old Josh, and this little "episode" caused him and Jeshula to split. He definitely hates her.

7. YAY!!! My favorites!! Jericho!! Terra! (Who is now a Titan again.) I used a reference for their pose.

8. I approve of cows!!!

9. Yeah, I'm pretty sure most of you folks have done this. But if you haven't, give it a go. It was fun. :)

Original Blank Meme by :iconmissdarkshiva:

My characters are mine, other characters belong to other folks, etc.

suddenly secretshipping feels everywhere
I swear if they end up reunited --Only Jolex is keeping me from letting the SecretSHip run the Josh/Freya course in my mind XD

Anyways, this meme was soo fuuun. XD I have it like half-drawn for Dove, and it's been that way for two or three years. I should probably finish this one, huh? XD

LOL!! Don't tell aki!!! xD haha

I secretly always wanted them to reunite later... maybe Josh would even have Alex along... Haha. Ohhh the fun...

You should!!! Definitely!! Lol. Memes are fun. c: And good for learning about characters...

You went on a spree through my gallery. Dx eeeeeeeek

ohmygosh that might make the best cross-reality RP I've ever heard. I smell a looove triiiangle.

Indeed! I'm addicted, even if I don't fill out ART memes so often. XD; I tend not to learn more about them because I've spent so much time exploring every scene so in-depth and watching them in all these "everyday" scenes that are just too mundane to write out... I know my characters better than myself sometimes. <XD So it takes a really in-depth meme/questionnaire to learn something new. /^w^ But it's still so fun to explore ways to put that all down on paper! ^w^
I was frantically searching for the half-done meme papers last night, but I can't find them ANYWHERE! Agh. I hope I didn't lose them in the move... I was really fond of some of those drawings. </rambles>

Yeeeep, sorry if it freaked you out. 8DDD;;; But I needed references. All the references I could find. >w> (You'll see what they were for when I post Aki's birthday present, which doubles as a Valentine's Day art piece.)

Or, you'll see what they're for assuming you haven't already figured it out. XD )

HMMMMMMM. Suspicious. I think I might know what you're up to.... :eyes:

OMG yes, I should show this to aki hahahaha

I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEAN THOUGH. I always want to do memes, but the ones I find are so... mundane that I feel like it's not worth filling them out! The questions are silly, and I'd rather have something more in-depth. I actually tried to solve that problem by creating a meme myself, but I actually found it really hard to come up with in-depth questions. xD

I still want to make a good OC meme with more interesting questions though. HEY--do you want to help me think of some good stuff?? :la:

I hope you find your half-done memes...

Welp, it's been revealed. Was your hunch correct?~

Same! I usually end up going through a dozen or so before I find one I want to do...

I can try to help you come up with in-depth stuff, sure! 8D Heck, I tried a flippant meme and it came out in-depth. 8F So if questions like this or this are a decent base value for "question depth", then I can definitely help. XD

The secret to making it deeper is to not only ask the WHOs and WHATs, but the why. Even if you make that another question, it adds a layer of depth and thought!~ "Who does your OC like?" *answer* "Why does (s)he like them?" *more in-depth answer*

Aaahhh, thanks. So do I...

Sure, those are a decent base value for "question depth." xD The sad thing is that "deep" questions can be hard to illustrate. -_-;;

WAY TO USE THEM DEDUCTION SKILLZ.

Good to know. :3
Ahhh... Yeah, I usually default to "drawing him/her with a vivid expression that tells all about what they're feeling and say something to explain."
What about asking questions about SCENES? Like "What scene had X impact on their life?" That counts as deep, right? o.o

Cows! Josh is like "Giddy up!" but the cow is just ignoring him...

I thought it was the lymphatic system! I couldn't be 100% sure though, it might have been an organ that only witches had or something. :)

I love how you drew the leopard seal, I know they're scary..but they're also so fascinating. You've probably heard of this, but National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen kind of swam with them in order to photograph them...and it actually brought him dead penguins to try and feed him.

I giggled so hard at Josh's last predicament...eating Star's food. He should probably give it to Terra, she doesn't mind.

Yeah, especially their teeth!! Did you see "8 Below"? Even there, the leopard seal was an antagonist. xD;;
I saw a speech he gave about it, and he said he regretted giving NatGeo the idea right before he hit the water, but he had to deliver. xD

Yeeessss!! Or that movie with the blue and pink penguins!!! Ugh, what was that stupid thing called... The Leopard Seal in that movie gave me nightmares as a kid! *one quick google search later* Scamper!!! Scamper the penguin!

Anyway, I bet he did. I certainly would. :I Eeeeekk....

HOLY-CRAP-I-JUST-REALIZED-SOMETHING! By any chance, are your Witches and such inspired by His Dark Materials book series?! I literally just put two and two together and realized that they remind me a lot of each other! But you may have no idea what the book series is so...yeah..random.

...Anyway, leopard seals seem terrifying. Holy crap. And I love your jokes in this, for some reason, seeing Falconer ride a cow is hilarious~ Probably because of how random it is.

:iconlilbluestem:
LilBluestem Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2011
Once again, you are SO COOL. XD On Falconer's profile I mentioned that they totally ARE inspired by His Dark Materials--though they're admittedly inspired by a lot of other things as well, and their story's evolved to mash together a LOT of mythology from cultures throughout time. (Apparently "familiar" animal spirits have been recorded as far back as ancient Egypt. Blows my mind.)

HDM=so random, but so awesome. I definitely liked the first one most, and from then on it got... stranger and stranger. I pretty much stuck around for the characters (especially Lyra and Will). I don't know if you've ever heard of the "Mark Reads" blog, but he totally just finished reading and reviewing that series, which made me very happy. :)

Thanks. XD I want to ride a cow... so bad... You have no idea. Although stalking birds in cow pastures all summer kind of scarred me a bit. Cows are very strange and sometimes terrifying. (But so curious and cute!!)

You did? I missed it, but it was so obvious, I really shouldn't have. With Imagine, I must admit she is inspired by so many things it's hard to peg one as the major inspiration. Egypt? Amazing. It's cool you've done some much research, makes me feel lazy. XD

Exactly, and no, I have no heard of him, but I'll go look him up now! That sounds cool.

I'm going to be honest here, most animals that are bigger/same size as me I find terrifying, even horses which many of my friends love. :D I love birds though, I've always been around them because my dad loves them so much-He has loads of books on them.

Egypt is set as the origin of magic and familiars in my story. :D They were obsessed with immortality too, so a lot of my themes are tied together in that culture. Yay! (Iceland + Egypt is a very strange combination, but somehow it all works... haha)

Your dad sounds awesome. I approve of his animal preference!

Awesome. Lovely drawing as always. =D Josh does not look nearly as worried about the alien creation he's eating as he is about what Starfire's doing to Jeshula. :XD: (Although that makes sense; I'd be more worried about a super-strong emotional alien dancing around with half my soul than what the alien food will do to my insides.
