|Give me one good reason.jpg
Obsidian Original Characters 2015/8/28 8:18
|I begin my search for Nechronos by first hunting down Takashi's killer, and it doesn't take long to |
find my little clone, holed up in a warehouse yet. I decide to handle this old school and begin making my way through the vents. Fortunately for me this warehouse doesn't house anything sensitive so they don't have any sensors in their ventilation shafts. I don't make a sound and it impressed even me how silent I have become. My new powers grant me a level of stealth I have never known before, I mean it's one thing to not make a noise come from you, but no noise comes from anything I touch this means even if I rolled around in these vents nobody would hear the metal buckle. It's creepy actually but as an assassin, dear gods it's frightening. I spot my quarry below me about 30 feet down and he's discussing his report with an Hadean underling who I let leave without incident...no sense killing when I don't have to. I slowly descend upside down on a single strand of webbing, it doesn't creak like rope or cable and numb nuts doesn't suspect a thing. I am taken bu surprise when he speaks, seriously.
"Come to finish me off?"
He says as he turns to face me. I'm dying to know how he knew I was there but I play it off like it's nothing.
"Word is you did Takashi."
"I did. He was interfering with Nechronos' plans so i was ordered to pay him off or dispose of him. He wouldn't accept the money so..."
"So he basically signed his own death warrant."
"Exactly. I'm surprised you're here, I know you didn't care for him..he was so very pushy."
"Don't get it twisted cloneboy, I'm not here for vengance, I'm here for answers. I want to know what Nechronos is planning and where he's hiding."
"I don't have those answers and if I did I'm certain he would compel me to keep them secret."
He draws his sword, to my utter disbelief. The last time we met I spared him, and gave him his free will.
"I grant you your freedom and this is what you do with it? You do know I'll not be so forgiving this time right?"
"What are you talking about? Until now we have never met. Ah you must be talking about 7, he was...disposed of as well...In truth none of us wanted to do it but that damned compulsion."
"I could free you like I did him. We could use your help and two of me would be incredibly formidable."
"The master has thought of that...he has an eternity crystal...and none of us will be free so long as he lives!"
With that, the moron lunges with his sword, presumably to catch me off guard. I repay his stupidity with a well place fist upside his forehead which sends him flying across the length of the building stopping only when his body meets the reinforced walls. With a flick of my wrists I secure the exits with a powerful webbing that would be difficult for me to cut. He begins to visibly panic scanning the room quickly for an alternate means of escape. There isn't any and he knows it, now he'll fight like the caged animal I just turned him into.
He assumes the standard Djinok ninja fighting stance, and I laugh.
"That's not going to work you know?"
"I'm compelled to do whatever is necessary to complete my mission or die in the attempt. I can't let you stop me."
He lunges for me again but this time I head butt him sending him reeling from the impact. he swings his blade even more fiercely again and again locking swords with me in this form is practically an exercise in stupidity and tantamount to suicide, I catch his arm under mine pinning him. With the tip of my blade at this throat, I ask him just one question.
"Give me one good reason not to shove this blade straight through your skull."
"One huh? How about this: I hate Nechronos as much as you do."
The answer is really good and I ease my grip...just a little.
"Say that again?"
"We all hate him. We're you...we remember everything you do. We know he caused 7 to kill Moonshadow...and there's nothing we can do about it. We have to obey him...but..."
"We are somewhat rebellious, we can act outside his orders or twist them..when he's not careful we can do a lot of damage to his plans."
"What do you mean?"
"If for instance he tells me to kill someone I can choose when so long as he doesn't specify. Right now in this situation, I can negotiate my way out if I deem it necessary."
"Because you're compelled to do WHATEVER is necessary to complete your mission."
"Precisely. We are compelled to obey him, but..."
"If he were no longer in a position to give orders, like say if he were stone dead. Then we would all be free."
"You keep saying we, and all, exactly how many of me are there?"
"In total thirty seven were created. Thus far twelve have been sacrificed for whatever this plan of his is."
"Holy shit!!! All that from n arm?"
"There's more. Five of us have your technology and armor."
"Fantastic! Well at least I know how to dispose of them if I need to. How did they get hold of my technology though? I mean that is a lot of Absorbium-80 to make 5 suits, we usually recycle ours."
"Nechronos has a man inside the Black Mantis's ranks who has been funneling resources to him. I don't know how he contacts him or any details but I have overheard him speaking to someone he calls Shadowmaster."
"Okay so lets assume I believe all of this...what exactly are you proposing?"
"Nechronos never once told us to be loyal, he told us to obey, and we do. If you promise to kill him and set us all free I'll deliver information to you that will help you stop him...think of me as a mole. If he finds out though he'll wise up and correct the situation. In which case you'll be screwed."
"If that happens i may have no choice but to kill all of you."
"It's a risk we're willing to take, for her. No matter what though, you make that sonofabitch pay for Moonshadow."
"I'm going to risk this, just this once, I know you're not lying, but if you go back on this agreement of your own free will..."
"I know the consequences."
I release his arm and he walks over to a nearby computer. He taps a few buttons and waves me over.
To my surprise he holds up a data storage chip. Then adds.
"This is a copy of the information I was sent here to get. I was ordered to destroy it when i was done recovering it but he never said I couldn't make a copy for you before i recovered the data. Like I said...We all hate him."
With a wave of my hand the webbing sealing the exits dissipates and he the clone nods.
"Just one last thing Obsidian."
"You're gonna have to do some damage..or he'll never believe a word i tell him and he'll make me tell him the truth so if you want to this chip you're gonna have to pry it out of my fingers."
The words no sooner escape his mouth when I send him crashing into another wall with a single blow. I take the chip from his unconscious body and check to make sure there's no permanent damage and take my leave. Dissension in the ranks? I'm actually flattered that even a clone of me would still find a way to be as much me as they could. Not sure what'll happen if they all gain their freedom, but I'm pretty sure it's gonna cost me some contracts.

|Her command over the Undead is absolute.|
I have posted several images using iray, but this is the first to render to a complete 100%
It is worth noting that this was done on a system that is pushing 8 years, in a 673 x 621 resolution, Only the character, clothing, hair, and 3 lights. This took my system around 26 hours to render. The results are worth the wait for me. So if anyone is thinking of working with iray, here are results of my own work.

Obsidian Sci-fi 2015/8/23 22:13
|Obsidian's quarters are accessed to the right and left of the main view screen on the bridge, Obsidian's quarters surround the bridge on both sides and were it not for the bridge itself would take up all of deck one in the bridge tower. As the Lillun's bridge section has been replaced so too have his quarters. The Captain's quarters are now more spacious as well as more luxuriant and are equipped with essential interfaces and a great deal of personalization, such as the four burner stove-top that Obsidian enjoys cooking on, and his coffee maker. The quarters come complete wit what is essentially a spacious home complete with personal restroom with Jacuzzi, shower and sauna, a large sleeping area with entertainment system (full 20th century videos and audio are in the master library), there is also a personal laboratory for private R&D. Since becoming the God of Shadows and Intrigue Obsidian has gained many skills and intends to have a Skill chip set implanted upon relinquishing his powers. While he won't be able to improve upon the skillchip's database they will nevertheless grant him a few specialized skills he has yet to master.|
I love creating interior rooms I can get lost in them for hours tweaking this or that until I have just the right look and feel. This one took the better part of two days to refine and 2 hours to render...well worth it for just a shot of this gorgeous living room IMHO.

|Yvonne Craig Tribute #2 Batgirl
Dragondack TV and Movies 2015/8/21 15:49
|Sorry guys I just couldn’t let this go.|
I gave it a lot of thought & found the rightful credits I need.
After remembering the original Base by Heroglyyph.
It did not have Yvonne Craig’s Head.
I thought it should, so I did a redux.
It took awhile to find the original.
Taking the original, I coloured the Background,
Then I adjusted the uniform colours,
Then found the appropriate Batgirl head,
Cut&Paste and resizing it and fitting it in.
I hope I don’t get in trouble for this.

|I walk into my new quarters aboard the refitted Lillun, and I head for the shower but as I remove my helmet I catch a glance at myself in the mirror...and then on reflex I put three rounds into it. I didn't recognize my own reflection, and why? Because my skin is as black as ink. What in the for real fuck? I call the only person who can offer any insight into this sudden transformation...The Black Mantis. In a flash of lightning he's standing before me and the son of a bitch immediately begins to snicker.|
"This is funny to you? Are you serious?"
"Yeah" he laughs..."just a little."
"Well would you mind telling me what the hell is going on? I'm not a Drow, Daakalfar, or any other kind of dark elf."
"Is there um, something wrong with being a Drow?"
The tone in his voice suggest he thinks I might be racist..he's got to be kidding.
"Don't be an ass. Your insinuative tone is seriously uncalled for."
"Heh, you're really starting to loosen up, that stick of yours might actually have made it all the way out of your ass. Seriously, that quiet terror of me was getting old, still don't get too carried away. Okay I'll tell you what's going on. It's simple actually, didn't you ever notice how dark Moonshadow's skin was, I mean her skin was like, seriously black...even for our kind."
"Well, okay maybe a little."
"She was goddess of shadows and intrigue, and now you are. Being a Drow, and change in her skin tone would have been nearly unnoticeable by outsiders. However, on you...it would literally be a change of night and day but look at your eyes, they're still the same so I'm guessing the change is just cosmetic...Heh heh"
"So I'm stuck like this?"
"I'm afraid so...well at least for as long as your remain Lord of Shadows and Intrigue. Just be glad those spider legs come out of your back and not your waist. I don't think you'd do so well as a half spider. Ha Ha!"
He leaves as quickly as he came and I go back to the bathroom. With a wave of my hand the mirror is reassembled so I can get a perfect view of my now jet black skin. I need a nap.

Obsidian Original Characters 2015/8/14 22:35
|I finally get some semblance of control over my "Divine Form" and begin looking more like myself, yeah like myself if I had a baby with a spider. Sheesh. The hardest part about all this divinity stuff is all the extra BS you have to get used to, you know like 5 pairs of eyes...that actually work...3 days of vertigo was the price for that one but in combat it's kind of a plus since no one can sneak up behind me, or to the left, right, above etc etc. In any case I get things as close to normal as I can and I've been assured that my emotional rages will subside after a while (probably after I eat someone or something close). The black Mantis has had his crew hard at work redesigning the Lillun to the point that we re-designated her the Lillun-A. Her weapons are upgraded with Phase modified, variable frequency cannons with instalock, meaning "Shields? Fuck your shields." they go right through shields that aren't in phase, and most aren't. We can now move through hyperspace as well as Space-fold and FTL. Honestly I thought Space-fold and hyperspace were the same thing but apparently they're not, one opens a portal across space and time allowing instantaneous travel, and the other is a short cut through space and time...same principal way different execution, and until recently we had no need for hyper-drives. The ship is immensely larger, by at least 30 percent and is now a light cruiser class with the firepower of a full blown battle cruiser. The bridge and all major systems got a complete overhaul, and I got new quarters, a new office, and an XO's office...never needed one of those before but Harley is welcome to it.|
I would say we are more than prepared for whatever Nechronos throws at us.
A bout mid afternoon I get a call from my clan, but it's not Master Takashi, it's some Oni Jonin named Maeko, who informs me that Master Takashi was found dead in his home, apparently murdered.
"As of now Obsidian Mask I am leading our clan and I we have yet to hear from you regarding your Chunin's marriage."
Up till this point I have been reluctant to accept my divine appointment but this bitch is, being kinda pushy and I don't like her tone...So.
My image on her monitor vanishes suddenly, and she becomes Irate.
"Obsidian! Do not walk away while I am speaking! You are bound to this clan and to it's leaders, I will not..."
"Will not what...Mortal?"
My countenance is frightening when I wish it, and right this moment I do. She may be an assassin but she is still mortal and I can generate fear, the shadows in the room seem to darken, an ominous red glow takes the place of whatever light remains...and those spider legs and ten eyes will really put you off your game...they're just unsettling.
"I-I-I What is this? What trickery?"
"No trickery mortal, a god was slain and that god's power is now mine. This I would say seriously alters the dynamic of our...relationship, don't you think? Therefore the next time you speak to me in such a disrespectful manner, will be the last time you speak....at all. Am I making myself perfectly clear?"
"My lord I had no idea, please forgive my ignorance I meant no disrespect."
"Of course not, in any case the two chunin are to be wed. However, the time is at my discretion, until then I will keep you apprised of any changes. As for the clan, does anyone know what happened to Takashi?"
"It was an assassin, and a good one. at first we suspected you since he left all the same tell tale signs you are known for, but our contacts assured us you were in the company of...him."
They don't speak the Black Mantis's name, superstitions that he may come for them, and apparently on at least one occasion he did. I digress, the murder sounds like the work of my clone, I'll send you the details. Good day Jonin."
Now things are really getting interesting. Why would my clone kill Takashi? That doesn't make any sense. I shadow slide back to the Lillun and prepare to get underway, we have at least three leads and I intend to follow up on them all including Takashi's assassination.
