I will start working on pic editing and will hold onto it until i read your post in my thread !
Off-topic, i shared your constructive criticism xith my son about the figurines, and he found them very valuable and i'd even say it gave him a nudge to resume painting...

Wunderschön, let the quiz game begin XD!
Really? I´m most delighted to hear that my constructive critisism was considered valuable By you son and that it has awakened the painters soul in him :D.

Get a room you two...

Lol just kidding.

Anyway, same with VC, i’m kinda tempted to sleep with Aziza... but i’m kinda scared at the same time... scared at what would the fate of my precious banana be if she goes wild in bed... i mean, look at that muscle... *shiver*

Yup, as Vilarcane said it, we do have our Private chat room XD. Though even that is not spacious enough to contain some of our conversations XD.

Hah hah XD, indeed, considering her strenght and muscles it would be adviced for partner to have certain stamina and durability as well XD.

Been eyeballing that C'tan guy :) Not much to say that hasn't already been said, but I'm sorry you ran into that "3rd ExEq" bug with Azwel's ribbons. Hope they fix that one of these days. Cool concept, and pretty much immune to equipment damage too.

PHAH HAH HAA XD! That linked picture is just so spot on XD! Visualized warning for TG for sure XD.

Thanks for the compliment on C´tan ;). Yeah, the bug is annoying, I too hope they fix it. Well, not exactly completely immune to equipment damage, as the Azwels ribbons, his mask and flame ornaments still get destroyed. Stay tuned, for I´m soon going to upload an improved version of him ;).

I don't know about you, but i find Amy extremely boring + very little new equipment to work with.
But ok, better than nothing, and i am sure we all can pull off a few cool CAS with her, starting with you HK :)

Well, I didn´t really expect any larger amount of new equipments other than her own ones. Her style, well, we basically got a bit modified, shorter range version of Raphael style and also easier to use. It does make sense storywise, since it was Raphael who taught her, but as something new, yeah, not so much. And you already created quite CASs with her as the base of them, check your thread for my review of them :).

I have been busy with other stuff so I have only managed to check and play her out storywise. I will most definetily come up with a CAS based on her style at least, but for now, check out my newest update down below ;).

[07] Duelist
Most wunderschön greetings, my fellow CAS-artists, Soul Calibur fans and friends :D! This is Herr-Krieg writing :).

It´s time for my newest update to show the results of my couple of nights of SC6 playing sessions. Now I do want to apologize if I have had kept you waiting, but I have been busy with my hobbies and other live activities that have demanded my attention, so I haven´t have time to post updates. I´m admittedly a little bit of a perfectionist and I want my updates to look very presentable and logical. This naturally takes rather long and much of my time which I haven´t have recently. Not to mention that I also wanted to wait and check out Amy DLC before posting. Now admittedly I didn´t manage to come up with CAS utilizing these new equipment and Amys style, but I will most definetily come up with something in the future updates. So stay tuned for that ;).

However, on to this update. I have a couple of remastered CAS as well as two whole new CAS to show you. Now, my dear and fellow CAS-artist Vilarcane has viewed these creations raw versions and through his constructive feedback, I have honed them to what you will witness in this batch. So, credit for suggesting these certain improvements goes to Vilarcane. Without further adjå, lets get the unraveling of this batch underway, shall we?

First I wish to show you two improved versions of my CAS shown in my previous update. Up first, I´d like you to meet the gorgeous terror of the seven seas, Anna Rafiel, Ausf D ( Aufs is a german word, meaning version ( I swear to Gott this will be the final version of her, geez XD ) :

And how she looks like in action:

60851


Darn hat clipping error, apologies XD

60852


60853


The next improved CAS is the mighty Transcendent C´tan, Ausf. B :

60854


The first improvement is tuning down her green skin to that of a bit darker green as it was a bit too bright. I also coloured his facial mask again to mimic that of the high tech living metal used By the necrons in Warhammer 40 000 Universe ( see the reference, notice the green highlightning: https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/warhammer40k/images/1/12/Annihalation_Barge.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20130330013058 ), The final small improvement concerns turning his flames under his arms to point more down for looking better that just pointing straight to the sides.

60855


60856



Now, as for my first new CAS of this patch, since Transcendent C´tan was overall such a succes, I decided to come up with something rather similiar, yet different CAS, its original design and look also drawing its inspiration from the Warhammer 40 000 Universe.

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, fellow CAS-artists and Soul Calibur fans, I´d like to introduce you one the greatest deceivers and tricksters known in Warhammer 40 000 Universe, so deceitful that he once deceived even himself XD, C´tan Shard of The Deceiver ( see the reference picture here: https://www.games-workshop.com/resources/catalog/product/920x950/99810110003_TheDeceiverNEW01.jpg ):

How about seeing both C´tan unleashing their divine might on one another?

60872


"FEEL..."

60873


"THE DIVINE MIGHT!"

60874


"FINE!"

60875


60876


"Right...."

60877


"BACK AT YOU!"

As for my final CAS for this update, let´s get back to the ground level from the divine plains, ja XD?

I have seen some of the most brilliant CAS where my fellow CAS-artists have utilized the new equipment which appeared in the DCL 3. How one particular equipment, The Sanctified underwear, has been utilized By my fellow artists ,like Vilarcane, inspired me to also take my shot at using this particular equipment piece as the base of my new CAS, since I saw how diversly it can be used.

Fellow CAS-artists, Soul Calibur fans, ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, I present you: The Shadow Ninja Kuraikage:

60878


60879


60880


60881


60882

60883


60900


I decided to use ExEqs and create a ninja weapon for her called Kama, a traditional Japanese farming implement bearing similarities to sickle, but which can also become a deadly weapon in the hands of a capable ninja.

60884


Quiz question: What does the chinese characters on her hat and on her shoulder board armors mean and symbolize?

60904


60905


Someone is going to need a trip to the chiropractor...XD

60906


60907


60908

And that does it for this update, my friends :). Hope you enjoyed what you saw, as usual, comments, constructive critisism, opinions, ideas and conversations are always welcomed and appreciated.

And remember,

Let the tale of souls and swords be eternally retold ;).

Ok, first off thanks for the credits but you did all the hard work.
Overall, the updated versions look much better, the Deceiver is nicely fleshed out now and the face much more menacing :)
I like the C'tan vs Deceiver fight pics too.

The shadow ninja is still a wee bit crowded for my taste but she is thematically coherent and well executed, with all the symbols, the patterning which looks like a stealth camo, and the face paint, but the real highlight to me is the sickle : i see you learned from the Stielhandgranate experience (wink) and now master ExEq combination, with added pattern for blood on the blade. let's say you caught me by surprise with this extra weapon, so you are half way there striking me silly with a wow-inducing CAS :)

Oh and it's...eternally retold :)
 

Herr-Krieg

[07] Duelist
You are most welcome mon ami :)! Well, you did suggested the improvements, so I only saw it fair to mention your part in their development :).

Yeah, The Deceiver truly got live in it with the applied demonic mask coloured to shining Silver like in the reference pictures. This also fits to his deceiving and divine nature :). I applied the pattern on his chest to somewhat mimic his robe clothing. With two C´tan created, I thought it was only natural for them to fight off one another to see who is stronger.

Great to hear that I got Kuraikage right. While the original camo pattern did indeed cause to much crowding, I really wanted the underwear to have at least some sort of a pattern which wouldn´t be so overcrowding and of course, not copying your design or anything such. So I ended up with the mist like pattern to kinda mimic certain fog and camo like pattern fitting to her shadow ninja theme. With the help of the list explaining the meanings of the chinese characters in the game I decided to apply the specific chinese characters to her hat and shoulder armor for a good reason :).

I too find the sickle to be one of the highlights of her design. Oui, the experience with the Stielhandegranate was truly helpfull and to make the stick (horn) and the sickle ( moon piece ) synch together did take its own effort XD. And at first I did try to paint the stick to look like wooden, but wooden stick just didn´t fit to her otherwise metal dominating gear that well, so I painted it metal, with of course utilizing camo pattern to give it more depth as well as to blood on the blade. Oh I´m most delighted to hear that I managed to suprise you with the Kama, should spell something about my progress :). Not to worry, my silly striking CAS is still to come at some point ;).

And the writing mistake is now fixed. Verdamnt me and my english XD...

Well, i like C'tan and The Deceiver... they look somekind like an evil deity... look simple yet menacing and evil. For the first time attempt of male CAS, you did pretty good :)

As for the shadow ninja Kuraikage, agree with VC that she's a bit too crowded. But if that's the concept design you're going for then it's fine, and she still looks great.

Yeah, i really think you're getting better n better in every CAS you created... and i think you may be surpassing me now. So keep up the nice work HK :D
 

Herr-Krieg

[07] Duelist
Oh thanks so much for the compliments my friend :D! Before C´tan and The Deceiver I didn´t really have any solid, inspiring idea which would act as my jumping platform to start uploading male CAS as well. With my miniature conversations with VC and me realizing how I could execute both of them exactly gave me the boost to try them out.

Yeah, I still agree with both you and VC that she is still a bit too crowded. I could come up with something simpler pattern design for her Sanctified underwear, as I kinda see it as the source of the overcrowdning problem. So, improved version coming right up ;).

Thanks for beliefing that I´m improving ;D. Really gives me the boost to keep on creating :). Well, surpasing you is kind of a strong phrase, we are all fellow CAS-artists here expressing ourselves. No need to make it any serious competition. Nevertheless I appreciate your praise :).

I should have my next batchs CASs ready after tonight, so stay tuned for a new update ;).

Musta wunderbar und wunderchön greetings, my fellow CAS-artists, Soul Calibur fans and friends :D! This is Herr-Krieg writing :).

I´m psyched to present you my newest update containing the results of my couple of SC6 playing sessions CAS-creating from the period of one and a half week. First of all, I would like to officially apologize for my lack of overall absence and updates from the forums, compared to how active I was about a week or so back. Some of the reasons for my absence are my other real life activities which constantly kept getting in my way, and also perhaps some tiredness. I admit this tiredness is mostly due to my questionable sleeping habbits XD, but also perhaps some will in the back of my head to take some freetime from the forums after writing so many reviews about other peoples creations. I hope you understand my point and reasons. But now that I have taken some break, I will try keeping my activity high in this otherwise not so active site :)

With that apologize out of the way, on to the update itself :). For this rather large update, I´m proud to present you some improved older CAS, alternative attires for regular SC6 characters, hole new created CASs and something rather special as well. Without further adjå, ladies and gentleman, lets get ready to RUMBLE!

Up first, I´d like to intoduce you an improved version of my shadow ninja Kuraikage from my previous update:

61088


61089


The main improved is the changing of patterning on her hat and her Sanctified underwear as both Vilarcane and TopGun87 critized her looking too crowded ( credits for suggesting these improvements to both of them ;) ). I considered the shadowy patterning to be the main reason for this fault and decided to change the patterning to look like strings on her hat and more importantly on her sanctified armor gear. This made her overall look much more clealer and less crowded and I´m very pleased how much better she looks now :).

61090


61091


61092


61093


Yeah, some fanservice, deal with it XD.

61094



Up next, I´d like to show you some of my created alternative attires for the regular SC6 characters. To pave a bit of a background for them, out of all the both regular and new characters introduced in SC6 when it was released, Groh ( alongside with Azwel ) was a character with the design that caught my eye. The modern looking attire, cool fighting style and a rather intrigueing personality and story storymode WISE made him one of my favorites from the bunch. So for this update I decided that it would be most appropriate time to make some alternative attires for him. While most of the inspiration for these alternative attires do come from my very positive experience with Hilda Braum, I also considered that they would kinda neatly fit to Grohs cold and militaristic personality, not to mention his northern, scandinavian Denmark-Norway origins.

Fellow CAS-artists, SC fans, ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, I give you Hauptsturmführer ( rank used in Waffen-SS, equivalent to rank of captain ) Groh from the dreaded SS :

61095


61096


61097


61098


61099

61100


Now, while admitedly his outfit is mostly the same as his original one with a black dominant colour theme, I tried to bring certain originality to the idea By adding the famous and familiar Stielhandegranate 24 to his belt, the infamous yet politically correct looking armband and an officer cap which I modified with the use of ExEq to look like the visor cap used By the SS officers during the nazi era Germany. Should be rather easy to figure out what ExEq part I used. I just thought that Grohs orignal equipment design looks so fitting to the concept with some properly added details.

61101


61102


61104


61103


61105


61107


61108


61109


Quiz question: What small detail did I add to his skin and to what historical detail relating to Waffen-SS it is related to?

61110


61111


61112


61114


61113


61115


61116


61117


61118

Now, while this attire "somewhat" relates to his origins of birth, as nazis considered the northern scandinavians to be somewhat "racially proper and equal" to their racial ideas, ( even minding them at best as heirs to their viking past ), Scandinavia is rather known for its cold and harsh environment. Inspired by this, in addition to the fur in his jacket and experiences with Hilda Braums winter attire,

I give you, ladies and gentleman, SS-schütze Groh in winter attire:

61119


61120


61121


61122


61123

61125


Yes, his attire is very similiar to his original one. Yes, it does look like Hilda Braums winter attire to which it is heavily based on. But hey, it´s a male version, and I tried to make it just a bit different with small details, like his fox fur, some differing use of patterning and different colouring andpatterning ideas considering his googles as well as his boots ( one of the screenshots down below ). Plus, I admit that Groh with his serious and killer looking personality makes him look like a total badass in it XD.

So yeah, the fur collar looks like foxs fur. Yes, Groh himself accuired it through his hunt as his own addition to the suite and for a better cold resistance. Yes, the fox made puppy eyes when Groh was about to kill it. And yes, he didn´t feel even the slightest bit of compasion or remorse when he did it XD.

61126


61127


61128


61129


61130


61131


61132


61133


The character creation area really doesn´t do justice to this winter based attire now does it? How about seeing him in action in a bit more convenient and fitting environment?

61134


"Which is the supreme champion of the Reich in the north ?"

61135


61136


61138


61140


61139


61141


61142


61143


61144


61145


61146

That´s it for the alternative attires, time to show you some hole new CASs I came up with about a week and half ago. After the succesfullCASs Transcendent C´tan and C´tan Shard of the Deceiver, I have been paying a very close attention to my miniature hobbys Warhammer 40 000 franchises miniature designs in search for new sources of inspirations to my next CAS creations. And couple of weeks back I got such an inspiration and idea that I realized how to execute rather efficiently.

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, fellow CAS-artists and SC fans, I present you: Skitarii Vanguard Leader from Adeptus Mechanicus faction in Warhammer 40 000 Universe:
mk2501:  Warhammer 40K - Adeptus Mechanicus - Skitarii



61148


61149


61150


61151


61152

61153


Considering the patterning and colouring of the blades I wanted to make them look like electrically powered up like the usual Skitarii weaponry:
Skitarii melee weapons

61154


61155


61156


61158


61159


I tried to make the backbag look like the metallic radio or the electronic contraption seen on the back of the Skitarii Vanguard with a radio antenna sticking out of it. Backbags look and structural essence gave me propblems, but after some consideration, I decided that it would be worse without it so I stack with it.

How about seeing our brave, mechanical Skitarii Vanguard Leader banishing some xenos filth?

61160


61161


"Fear not before the xenos menace!"

61162


61163


"FOR THE OMNISSIAH!"

And now, for my final, new CAS creation of this batch, I´d like to give some background info about it. Since my gorgeous and powerfull african warrior lady Aziza was such a huge success as a CAS ( I simply outright love her XD ), I enthusiastically wanted to create a CAS rather similiar to her design. As the idea, concept and inspiration as to what I would create came together in my head and I started to execute them, I faced a problem. My equipment choices for the new CAS became dangerously similiar to Aziza, in fact almost identical. After a bit of a desperate headbanging, thinking ( as I didn´t want to chance any of the equipment choices ) and discussion with Vilarcane, I decided to stick with the design and instead make the decisive difference between the new CAS and Aziza By concentrating on making other features in the new CAS different to Aziza: concept, idea, skin colour, stickers, colour theme and especially the facial features.

And now I´m proud to introduce you the fruits of that work :). Hope you like it ;).

Fellow CAS-artists, SC fans, ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, I give you: The strong female orc warrior lady, Shagarina:

61164



61165


61166


61167


61168

61169


61170


"WAAAAAAA...."

61172


"....AAAAAGGGHHH!"

61173

61174


"Stomping like a proper orc"

61175


61176


61177


61178


61179

61181


"WAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHH!"

61180


61182


61183


61184


61185


61186


61187

And since greenskins are usualy famous for being capable of using different sorts of weaponry:

61188


61189


61190


61191

Orc warriors also need to keep themselves in prime condition for the future stomping:

61192


61193


61194

Now what would be a better way to show her in action than putting her up against the very CAS that inspired me to create her :)?

61195


61198


61196


61197


61199


Not quite sure wether Aziza should feel pain or enjoy the moment XD

61200


"Time for some back braking"

61201


61202


61203


"Bow in shame humie!"

61204


61205


61206


"Ah, this is gonna hurt."

61207


"You betcha ass, humie!"

61208


61209


61210


"Ya liked dat, humie?"

Since Aziza is getting her ass handed to her, it would only be proper for her to return the favor:

61211


61212


"How´s the view up there?"

61213


"Or down there?"

61214


61215


61216


61217


61218


61219


61220


61221


61222


"Right back at ya, greenskin!"

61223


61224


61225


"How does it feel to be on the receiving end, greenskin?"

In order to end this update with a proper bombshell, I have something truly special to show you. How do you know when you have truly fallen in love with your creation? For me, it´s when after several weeks, even months after its creation, you can´t help yourself but to keep admiring and loving it. One just wants to expand the concept of your creation even further and show one way or another to others just how passionate that love for your creation is. For me that has happened with Aziza, and in order to show you people this lasting passion, I present you this true work of art.

Fellow CAS-artists, SC fans, ladies and gentleman, boys and girls. I´m most proud and priviledged to present you: the most gorgeous, powerful and wild beaty warrior of the African Savannahs, Aziza:

61226


This most stunning and buffed piece of artwork of Aziza has been done by the most skilled artist know as Osmar-Shotgun as an art commission work asked by me naturally. With his buffed art style I just had to see how Aziza would turn out with his drawing style. You can check more of his most buffed and intrigueing artwork from his Devianart-site through the following link: https://www.deviantart.com/osmar-shotgun


So, TopGun87. Are you still in for that bedtime with her XD?


And with that Tsar Bomba of a bombshell, this update has reached its end. Hope you enjoyed what you saw, as usual, comments, constructive critisism, opinions, ideas and conversations are always welcomed and appreciated.

And remember as always,

Let the tale of souls and swords be eternally retold ;).

Holy sweet mother of jesus... that artwork of Aziza... uhhh no thanks, i’m good. lol

Anyway, both Skitarii and Shagarina look awesome. Skitarii looks quite close to the original art, like the radio backpack, the helmet, the stickers and patterns. Overall he looks pretty unique.

As for Shagarina, well, not a fan of orcs... but she looks as awesome as Aziza. But i still prefer Aziza (no, not that last Aziza art! *shivers*), cuz i’m scared of that orc teeth. lol
