Backstory From My Old Comics: Gionne is a lion-like man who works for CRASHER. He is very loyal to Lord Ghestov and serves as his personal bodyguard. Very strong, serious, and proud. He will only work for those with power, because power is what he respects. The other members of CRASHER don't quite like or trust him because he is not one to socialize, and they suspect that he keeps secrets about Ghestov's true plans and intentions from them.
Gionne's weapon is the Leo Lance, a staff with a lion-like paw at the end. The paw has many claws that stick out like spear tips. Gionne is about 27 years old.
Character Design Notes: Gionne originally was drawn as a normal human with long brown hair and a 5 o'clock shadow. However, something about him looked kind of "lion-like" to me, so the more I drew him, the more I turned him into a man/lion creature. (I don't have too many Gionne pictures yet, but I will eventually add more.)
Gionne in the RAU Gallery: Gionne has not made an appearance in the current series due to the fact that he was killed in the original.
Gionne head and sprite. (Please forgive my utterly vomit-inducing color scheme on Gionne's armor. I don't know what I was smoking when I did that. I didn't want to convert this to B&W because I like the way I did his hair and the red tattoo on his face.)
First of all, I apologize but I had to sponge out two characters that were not created by me, but rather by someone else who worked for The Minerva Project. Technically, that Aridian-looking priestess isn't mine, either, but I can tolerate her. The others...for personal reasons, I'd just really rather not have them associated with my characters at this point. It was either remove them or not post this picture at all.
Anyway, this is promotional art I did for The Minerva Project, but I made the stupid mistake of drawing the image so large, I couldn't scan the whole thing back then. But my ArcSoft Photostudio 5.5 has a feature that lets me stitch two images together, and thus, I was FINALLY able to scan both halves and combine them into one image. Years later. After The Minerva Project folded. >_> I'm also not too fond of the way Daris Wolf's expression is that of a puppy that's excited to see his master just came home from work, but I'm so picky that way. Anyway, their names are:
Wyvern King, Saber, Jack Sheen, Wildclaw, Serpentina, Lukyan Degorah, Daris Wolf, Raya (?), and Gionne.
This is probably the best sketch of Gionne's head that I have.
