I just realized that I haven't updated my Journal in forever, and I figured that if I'm going to continue to do so, I'd at least prefer to have a more generic journal with less outdated information it it.

Maxilla Draco by Blaze-Drag
Maxilla Draco
I decided I wanted to give the classic 'big sword with a gun on it' style another go since I felt my last attempt wasn't that great. 

Main: The default state of the weapon. The width helps block ranged attacks and provides light cover from area effects like small blasts. In this mode combat is mostly focused around either blocking attacks or using the weight of the weapon for crushing slashes.

Gun: 2 heavy caliber guns emerge from the blade, good for mid-range fire. They're slow-firing and have limited ammo, (not to mention I think I forgot to draw a way to reload it...) but they fire explosive rounds to maximize impact. The blade has a handle on it for a more stable grip when firing.

Saw: Well the blades retract over the main housing to reveal the chainsaw blade beneath. Obviously this runs off a limited amount of power, so it can't stay activated for very long without being able to recharge it every few battles or so. As opposed to the main mode, in this mode he uses the weight of the weapon to maximize contact with the beast to allow the chainsaw to go to town. This is typically used when the armor of the enemy is too tough for more 'traditional' attacks.

Also the chainsaw can be lit on fire with red dust. (not pictured)
Hidden Thorn: Dust revolver by Blaze-Drag
Hidden Thorn: Dust revolver
I was somewhat inspired by both Weiss' weapon, and also kobolds for this one.

The main line of thinking for this one is that the user's semblance would be similar to Weiss' but instead of having the glyphs basically act like spells, for this weapon they act like traps. So for example where Weiss can cast a fireball or ice spell at someone, this creates an invisible glyph somewhere that triggers based on proximity; so an ice shot from this would stick in the ground and wait for the target to walk near to it, then explode in a blast of ice to freeze the target in place. However each trap takes a few seconds to fully set itself, so it's important to lay out these traps ahead of time, or at least kite the enemy long enough for them to take effect.

The main part of the weapon is a normal revolver with 6 powerful shots meant to be used for general combat and self defense. Obviously the fun stuff is in the second chamber where 4 dust canisters are stored instead of bullets. The user can use more or less dust each time a trap is cast, and the more dust used, the more powerful the trap and the wider an area it covers. The types of dust and the traps they make are as follows:

*Fire: Basic damaging trap that causes a large explosion.
*Ice: Generally does little damage but freezes anyone near the trap when it goes off. Generally a smaller area of effect than the other traps unless more dust is used.
*Earth: Creates a large hole to be used as a pitfall trap. This one has some utility to it though as for instance it can be shot at walls or obstacles to create openings.
*Lightning: Largest area of effect with a strong electric burst. Generally non-lethal trap meant for subduing or weakening enemies. Also tends to bypass armor and other defenses.

Each trap takes several seconds to set up, so if shot directly at or near a target it will have no immediate effect. The main advantage of this delivery system is that traps can be set up at virtually any distance provided you can shoot it there. The gun is also relatively quiet when firing traps, which makes it perfect for ambushing Grimm and humans alike. 

Also I'm trying to come up with a symbol for this guy because I feel like the gun could use some more details. Like I said this was inspired by kobolds so maybe something related to that? I can't think of a good symbol for stealth and ambushing though...

Trindle 'Salvo' Salvador
Oh hey, I didn't lie about coming back and doing a full-body! Although I did this much faster than I expected, but hey, I need the practice. This girl is a Tengu Gunslinger that carries a shotgun and a double hackbut, as well as insane amount of gunpowder at any given moment. Also I was only recently made aware that Salvo is a girl, but luckily for me, Tengu are bird people, and thus are completely androgynous.

This is actually my friend's character in an upcoming Pathfinder game: Salvo the Tengu Gunslnger. I'll probably do a full body version later; this was just a random quick sketch for the fun of it.

I'm also still learning how to use my tablet fully, so this served as a nice little practice session.
Ninja Glenn by Blaze-Drag
Ninja Glenn
Another random quick sketch. This is actually a grippli Ninja character I'm playing in a Pathfinder game, and he's totally not based off of anything in particular... Especially anything related to pokemon or old-school SNES RPGs. He just sorta happens to have a long pink scarf (the most stealthy kind of scarf) and a white headband that I'm pretty sure is impossible to actually tie that way. After all his old companions include a Kitsune Witch named Daphne and a Oread Druid named Chester.
