Odessa by DameOdessa Odessa by DameOdessa
Something I totally forgot to post ^^; Shame on me :(

This is my very first drawing of Odessa! :)

Tagged by :iconkanako91: :giggle: About Odessa this time!
1. Her real name is not Odessa actually. She took her after a terrible ordeal she had to go through... She decided to named herself Odessa, a kind of female version of Odysseus.
2. She is the leader of the Eight Knights of Chaos. The Eight Knights do not appear a lot together: they are too dangerous, unsteady and mad for this, they can destroy a city just because they decided to play and fight each other.
3. She is the favourite disciple and priestess of God Urdryamnash who gave her most of her powers. In exchange, she allowed the cursed God to possess her own son's corpse for his reincarnation. Yes, she had a son and even a husband: he was an elven erudite who wanted to learn the dark arts and magics from her. He considered that his training couldn't be complete without this (he was a bit... suicidal :D) Her husband was killed during an attack in her castle commanded one of the Gods of the Asuras. Her son were killed by a man who formerly hired him as warlock (other story, too long to explain everything ^^;).
4. The tattoos on her body tell the story of her life, her pains, her joys... They are living, with their own will, so they can change a lot, considering Odessa's will, feelings, wounds... they can also totally cover her as an invicible shadow armour.
5. As she is devoted to the Chaos, her powers are really diversified: pure chaotic, shamanic and linked to the Nature (that's also why a lot of her tattoos look like flowers), elemental, linked to the Darkness and she also can change her into a panther, a crow... In fact it seems that she has not a lot of restrictions :D But being a disciple of Chaos also means that she is really open-minded and tolerates a lot of things. She does not like a lot laws and wish that freedom could be given to anybody on earth. She also protects artists, poets, authors and musicians (she is herself a very good harpist) and can be considered as a sponsor as she can help them with a home, money or a "job" in royal courts.
6. She has a "familiar"! He/she is named Fripouille dameodessa.deviantart.com/art/… and it is a little living gargoyle :D She also have a black horse named Galen and a crow, Lioja :)
7. Not only the fact that she uses magic but she is also very good with a scimitar! :D She learned this by herself and developed her own style, which looks like more a dance than a real fighting style. Recently she also discovered that a whip is really interesting ;)
8. At the beginning of my story, she only lives in her castle in the Succor-Benoth the Realm of Asuras. But she slowly decides to discover the world as she begins to make friends. She does not seem very talkative but in fact she is just... very demure :D If you want to please her, you can offer her black roses (she will probably put one in her hair) or pastry ;)
9: if Odessa has to be voiced by someone it could be a mix of Nicola Goodchild (Queen Aino in Primal), Melissa Lloyd (Malikel in Primal), Simone Grant (Karla in Lodoss, my favourite ;)), Judith Gibbins/Keeley Hawes (Lara Croft) or Grey DeLisle (Natla).

I look day after day at this wunderchschöne portrait of an Odeliske.
It is a source of the inspiration.
It is a tower of the beauty.
That far illuminates over the sea.
It is a secret. That deeply in the soul lives.
It is the monument for a worship.
It is the definition of the feminine and beautiful.
It is the symbol for the secret full seduction of the senses.
It is gives me no quiet.
(sorry for my doble Post to this Picture)

Amazing costume and coloring. The tiara is queenly yet demonic at the same time (it's so spiky). The combination of her toplessness with the elaborate skirt and hose is alluring, sorceress-y, and exotic.

It's amazing that this is your first drawing, it shows that Odessa sprang from your mind as a detailed, rich character. I can see how this inspired your later works (as well as my writing).

Thank you very much :)

For now, Odessa is truly my favourite character among all those I created :) I don't know exactly why but I suppose this is maybe because I'd like to look like her and to some extent she has part of me in herself :)

Once again thank you very much for this comment and for all your lovely writings :)

I am glad you are about to use her as a medium to express your own thoughts and feelings and dreams. It must make her very interesting to draw or write about.

She is very young. Not even two years... Somehow I was under impression she was a concept of longer development you carried with yourself... But maybe it is just a question of age, dare I ask how old you are?

She is a beauty. Yours and Andre's pictures make me wish to try an Odessa cosplay one day...

DameOdessa Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
A cosplay ? really! That would be such an honor!! :wow:

You're really right by analyzing the concept as a long development. It is the charcater I created I prefer, the maturest as well :)

Concerning my age, since I don't like to tell it in public, I'll send you a note (ok I know this is typically feminine right ^^;)

And cute avatar by the way :)

First, thank you very much for the favs, an encouragement for my amateurish photography skills...

Regarding cosplay, yes Odessa has this strange impact on me, the more pictures I of hers I perceive... in addition I believe there are similarities in appearance between the both of us. Even if only a dream it is to compare to her slender curves and redness of hair. But I think I indeed shall try the dress-up once there is some time, that is holidays... (I am quite overworked at the moment :(

You are young... are you still studying or what kind of occupation do you pursue? (indeed I am a curious creature). But your age explains the depth and dynamics behind her creation.

I decided to change my avatar into a representation of myself, that is a black cat...
