Creation History of Major Luca Story Characters

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 21, 2014, 10:27 PM
  • Reading: Steve-C2's short stories
  • Watching: Star Trek: Next Generation



This is a journal showing a chronological history of main characters from the Luca Stories in the time they were created. These are their first sketches. The date of each image is shown in the titles. As all of these pictures are old, they are of much lower quality than my recent works. I will not be making any comment about the art, but will instead, be talking about the origin of each character. Also, this will only involve prominent characters that were created BEFORE I joined DeviantArt. 

Hope me you all enjoy~:heart:





Laiten 2006~

Laiten is the earliest character that still exists. (Meaning, I did draw many things before her, but I have not continued or given a purpose to any of them.) Although she has been around for a long time as my "doodle buddy," I actually only recently found a way to add her into the Luca Stories. Her ability to change colors came from the fact that early on, I couldn't figure out her color pallet. This also led to her ability to shape-shift.

Laiten FIRST 2006~ by Jestloo



Spritloo early 2007~

Spritloo was part of a series of Fakémon I created, and was actually the "evolved form" of something called a "Sprit." He was made to be "ghost type" which later was the reason he became a Spirit Being on Kotia. He was a very crazy character that could hardly speak in coherent sentences. As you can see, he's gotten much taller throughout the years. 

Spritloo FIRST 2007~ by Jestloo



Flitz early 2007~

Just like Spritloo, Flitz was a Fakémon. This time, he was a pre-evolved form and a fire type. When I first drew him, I thought he was ugly. I despised the character so much that I gave him to my younger brother. Later pictures of Flitz reflect the character my brother turned him into. If it wasn't for my brother, Flitz would have never seen the light of day again.

 Flitz FIRST 2007~ by Jestloo



Luca 3/~/07

I created Luca as a fusion between Lucario and Weavile (Pokémon) with some of my own twists. Luca Stories was not started at this time, however, my love of the character caused me to start roleplaying alone in my room as him. There were a lot of... Bizarre adventures, but I came up with most of his powers here. Rachel and Cyrus were also first created right after Luca. But, I couldn't draw humans at the time. So, those three were the first characters to coexist in one story.

Luca FIRST 3/~/07 by Jestloo



Tasha 7/8/07

She's the first of the group that finally started getting dated. I moved to Texas by this time too. Tasha was mostly created as a love interest at the time and soon after, became a means for me to give Luca children. (I treated her like a worthless baby making doll. I'm so sorry Tasha!) They weren't officially a married couple until sometime in 2009. My Father had asked about them being married, because I showed him a picture of Luca holding up baby Todd (which was redrawn and posted here). After that, I realized that I needed to marry them. Tasha got an overhaul of character development after that and has been growing since.

Tasha FIRST 7/8/07 by Jestloo



Alabac 10/5/07

Yep, Alabac was created extremely early on. However, he was originally made as an alternate form for a male Jinx (Pokémon). I really liked his design, though. So, he showed up in some of Luca's crazy adventures as a bad guy. Then, when I created the Mirror Rod, he somehow got involved with it and was shown stealing it in his next sketch. Then, I believe it was 2011 or 2012 that my brother and I resurrected him and brought new life into his character. Karab, Luca, Jestloo and the whole business with the partnership of the Motaukeh and the Guardian of the Mirror Rod was created by now. So, we decided it would be ironic to have Alabac as the first Guardian partnered with Karab. In that way there was always a fleshy and spirit being in the partnership.

Alabac FIRST 10/5/07 by Jestloo



Aaron 12/2/07

Technically not the first picture of this character design, however, the first was intended to be a creature. Instead, I turned it into a character shortly after. So, this is officially "Aaron's" first sketch. Interestingly enough, Kotia was not created yet, but we did create the Snowfoot at this point. They were later added into Kotia. At the time, Aaron was a very big character and we had a separate story with him. Now, it will be a side story to the main Luca Stories.

Aaron FIRST 12/2/07 by Jestloo



Todd 12/8/07

Yeah, I created Todd on my birthday. Todd caused us to have to give specific ages to our characters. He also started our hopping around on a timeline. Instead of playing with a character with indefinite amount of time, we suddenly had to add 8 years to Luca and Tasha. (Later we tried putting the kids at ten years later. We ended up liking their characters there and haven't went back since.) Todd's creation was for me to play around with the idea of Luca having kids. I'm currently working on Todd's character right now. I hope to bring him to the foreground again. (Tawny was created several months later, but I lost the notebook where her first sketch was in...)

Todd FIRST 12/8/07 by Jestloo



Rikky 1/23/08

Rikky was created as the rival of Aaron. Only, Rikky out performs Aaron in everything he does. He also started out as something of a friend to Aaron, but later I added more to his character and he lets evil defile his soul.

Rikky FIRST 1/23/08 by Jestloo



Zango 2/9/08

Finally one of the gods gets created. Thanks to a picture of a dragon ax that came in the mail, I created Zango. Zango's character hasn't fundamentally changed. He isn't a character that is meant to change throughout a story, so he just stays the same. The orb was to be some kind of show of his divine power.

Zango FIRSTS 2/9/08 by Jestloo



Ixx 2/10/08

Ixx was created the very next day. Suddenly having two gods on my hands that were created to be opposites, an idea for Luca's origin began to form in my mind. This origin also gave me a purpose for Luca and a reasonable explanation of his powers. At the same moment, the beginings of Kotia were born.

Ixx FIRST 2/10/08 by Jestloo



Niko 3/13/08

Niko was drawn after his creation in the story. I've been wanting to redraw this character. He has been one of my favorite Snowfoots. He is the top teacher of sword fighting skills in the Snowfoot tribe. Anyway, I love him.

Niko FIRST 3/13/08 by Jestloo



Daggertail 4/16/08

(Like many later characters, the Daggertail existed before their first sketch.) The Daggertails had been around pretty much since Aaron was created. They haven't fundamentally changed since their creation. However, two characters from the Daggertail, known as Goldtooth and Cisbo, have yet to be drawn and have extensive character development. (All of the Daggertail sketches were based off of Cisbo's basic design.)

Daggertail FIRST 4/16/08 by Jestloo


 
Lucas 4/25/08

Lucas' was first created as an evil clone of Luca. However, while we were waiting for him to grow in the test tube in the main story, I played with the story a bit on my own and ended up changing it (to the early dismay of my brothers), creating the Lucas you all now know and love. His purpose was going to be similar to Negro, except he's less powerful. So, I felt he was futile in his original design. Instead, I used him to bring some more humanity into Cyrus. :D

Lucas FIRST 4/25/08 by Jestloo



Mr. Benny Bunbun 7/24/08

My watchers should know how Benny was created, but I'll repeat. The character was created from a very simple, cheap, stuffed bunny we got one Easter. My youngest brother, Xian, creates interesting characters. So, he turned the little Easter bunny doll into a French terrorist/mercenary. XD We ended up having him show up in the Luca Stories.

Mr. Bunbun FIRST 7/24/08 by Jestloo



Luraino 4/20/09

(Luraino has been in the story way before I attempted to draw him.) Originally, Luraino was just a Lucario (Pokémon) early on before we decided to make everything our own and cut off or change all ties from other franchises. Since he was viewed as a Lucario for the longest time, his early designs looked very similar to the Pokémon. It took three more years before I finally created a design that we accepted and no longer looked anything like a Lucario.

Luraino FIRST 4/20/09 by Jestloo



Jestloo 11/10/09

(Look! His date counts down! :giggle:) That's right, Jestloo didn't come about till several years later. He was created on the day of the picture. His creation was really an upgrade of Spritloo's design. However, instead of completely replacing Spritloo, I came up with the Guardian of the Mirror Rod title and gave reason why the two were one and the same. I've loved Jestloo ever since.

Jestloo FIRST 11/10/09 by Jestloo



Karab-Amabo 10/~/10

(I have yet to finish a picture of just Karab.) Like all my human type characters, he was created in the story before the sketch. Karab was created a little bit after Barak Obama became president. Originally, Karab was gonna have some awesome long hair, but I drew him bald instead. XD

Karab-Amabo FIRST 10/~/10 by Jestloo



Darling 10/28/10

Darling was created about the same time that Karab was. I actually don't remember much about her begining. Besides her back story, her personality really hasn't changed...

Darling FIRST 10/28/10 by Jestloo



Sikkic 4/5/11

Although, technically a creature, Sikkic has become an important character in the Luca Stories. He's very useful to Luca in many of his adventures on Kotia. Originally, he had a different facial design than his current look. The current look came about when I was trying to draw him from the front. The face turned out different and I liked it. I still really like his old head too. What do you guys think? Sikkic was the last character I created before joining DA. (Not that I wasn't drawing much in between. I created lots of creatures and have books full of sketches, but these are the staple characters that have shown up in the main series.

Sikkic FIRST 4/5/11 by Jestloo







Well, that's all for now. Hope you enjoyed it. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask. :) I was wondering, would it be better if I showed a current picture right after the originals for each character?


*Also, 9 days until the Halloween contest ends!*

Puppy Eyes Scarlet sketch - 10/21/14 by Jestloo
Puppy Eyes Scarlet sketch - 10/21/14
:iconsteve-c2: Steve-C2 asked if I would do his character, Scarlet, with Bambi eyes. By the looks of this, I obliged. (Although, I didn't answer him back. Sorry about that. Decided it was best to just do it right then and there, instead of dwaddling around.)

Scarlet is so cute. I've always loved drawing her. I noticed that I keep making tweaks to her body structure, more specifically, her legs and feet. I'm pretty satisfied with this current body type. 

Anyway, I'm glad he asked. I've been rather bummed by my lack of finished sketches as of late. I often suffer from the opposite of an "Artist's Block." I call it a paralyzingly over active imagination. Instead of settling on one project at a time, I tend to think of new ideas that get me excited and suddenly lose interest in what I'm doing. This is one reason why I have trouble finishing anything. So, it was nice to draw this quick sketch for simple fun.

In other words, thanks Steve. :)

Last night, I had a humorous thought for a short comic.

Luca runs to Tasha and places his hand on her arm: "Quick, I need to get ill!"
She smacks his hand away: "I have our divorce papers!"
Luca stares at her for a moment in disbelief, then turns away while covering his mouth: "...I think I really am gonna be sick..."
Tasha reaches over and tries to comfort him: "I'm sorry, was that too convincing?"

Don't ask me why. You people know I just want a reason to draw some emotive faces.  ;p

Hi! My name is Alyssa. I'm a self-taught artist, and I've been drawing seriously since about 7th grade.

I have a wild imagination, and a love of story telling. I love drawing, and do it anytime I can. When I'm not drawing, I am having stories with my made up characters running through my head. I don't write down these stories as often as I should, cause I find it boring and difficult, and I'm a perfectionist. But for now I will draw about them. My dream is to one day write about and share my world and it's stories to everyone.

Please comment on my pics! I'd love advice, as well as just a good job! :D

Creation History of Major Luca Story Characters

(Figure start with the heavy stuff, then work to the "candy".  ;))

Sweet!  I figured, "well, she's giving me the 'puppy dog' face in the OC discussion, I want to see what that looks like. :D

I really enjoy that comedy sketch.  Ever since I heard a pastor say, "Just because we speak the same language ..." I found that after, and I appreciate it on a whole new level.  :)

I'll comment on the piece later, when I have more time.

Aside from your thoughts on the recent stories? ;)

(Which, I would recommend you read Diner, then Journal of Last Person ..., then OC Discussion ...)

I was wondering if you could draw Scarlet with a puppy dog face.  :)

Just because we speak the same language, doesn't mean we always understand.  This, for example ...

Oh goodness! I can't seem to understand what you type lately! :iconfacepalmplz:

Now I really am surprised! (And after what you wrote in your OC story too! XD)
Alright, what is it you wanted to ask? :)

Really? From who and about what? :lol:
(yeah, I am suprised. Not saying it's because of your skill, but, you know, I always thought of it more as an art thing.)

Cool.

Would you be surprised if I said I had a small request, by the way?

They're both still in my messages. :)

Ha! Don't worry, I will. 

Thanks.
I'm currently out with my family. (And I forgot my pencil!! And my fingernails are to long to draw on Procreate! :crying:)

Ah, okay.

So, just don't forget, then. ;)  (Or about Diner)

Eh, sorta ... :blushes:  Did I mention I'm curious about which points may have made you laugh? ;)

Well, get rest, and get better. :)

Morning.

Yeah, I had some time to read before church, but not enough time to comment.

I know you are. ;p

Oh, it most certainly did! It kinda felt like you wrote that just for me. Lol! XD

Thanks. I'm feeling better than yesterday, but I'm still sick. ^^;
