Sheet Aseo by Culpeo-Fox Sheet Aseo by Culpeo-Fox
I spent the last couple of months on updating some character sheets. I created the original ones in...i dunno...2008 or something? It was about time.

So let's start with the reboot of Aséo, an old character who is very dear to me. Back then, i knew almost nothing about him. I knew his name, i knew he was searching for something but he would never tell what it was. It took him years to reveal his secrets and there still are a lot to find out.

A North-American Red Fox who is possessed by the peculiar wish of taming fire. Fascinated by the old stories of Faces (a common term among foxes for humans) who were said to understand and control fire he is driven by the idea to follow suit and tame the flames as well, convinced of the thought that fire is not a thing but something that actually lives, that speaks, the greatest and deadliest hunter out there that even coyotes and dogs fear. A simple idea that grows into an obsession and which will sooner or later lead him onto his own perdition.
Strong and beautiful, young and determined. A rather introverted and reserved nature who also tends to stubborness and headiness.

Taming fire is a big motivation, it seems, and likely for good reason. About how he views it, I read a book in which a child had similar views when seeing a flame from a lighter. When it was on, he imagined it as a graceful dancer, but when he burned himself on it, he viewed it as a fierce soldier. Can't remember what book it was, though.

Do you draw all of these on burt/ coffee stained/ wrinkled paper for effect. Or do you hand draw the background. Or do you edit the drawings onto the background via computer

I like the drawing, and interesting character.
I thought of this poem by the person in my icon:
<----

Ja, ich weiB woher ich stamme
  ungesaettigt gleich der Flamme
Gluehe und verzehr' ich mich

Licht wird alles, was ich faBe
kohle alles, was ich lasse
Flamme bin ich, sicherlich!

I hope you don't mind me telling you that Aseo... means toilet in Spanish :'D
But that aside, I like this character. He seems neat!

Actually, it means cleaniness. :P Toilet is cien or baño.

But yeah, i figured it out a tad too late that this word had an actual meaning in Spanish. Language can be a cruel thing. :P

Aseo's design is really neat; like a typical red fox with a couple little details that make him unique. That tail is quite impressive; very long, even for a fox. His backstory is really interesting. I like his theory about fire. But to his own perdition... By definition, if I'm not mistaken, perdition is complete ruin or hell. Oh Aseo...

Overall great character. I can't wait to see his tale...

I always had this strange thought about how fire was in a sense almost alive because of its need to breathe and for sustenance. Almost like a bacteria or something.

Anyway, minor nitpick but you forgot 'fulva' :P

:iconculpeo-fox:
Culpeo-Fox Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013  Professional General Artist
Nah, he more likely is a V.v. kenaiensis or a macroura, depending on where he exactly he was born. He is quite large and has a tail to be proud of, after all. Fulva foxes are too small.
Anyway, always found myself a little lazy when it comes to subspecies. He is a red fox, that is the main thing. Duh. :P

Yeah, when I saw him then read he was a north american he seemed rather big. Somewhat dainty around here. I got my finger nibbled at work (the one I got laid off at), wouldn't be so keen with European sized monster foxes. I guess that just happens when you're at the top...

I liked Aséo a long time... He was the one of your character besides Grennian I liked the most. ;) I dunno, but I think I connected him to the character Bold from the Farthing Wood series, and he was my favourite character from the show...
