DJ Redux by MeMyMine DJ Redux by MeMyMine
His name is not exactly DJ, but other people were referring to him by that in the chat channel when I played him in a now closed  MMO 5 years ago. Acting in ways and shaping the character in terms of how he was interacting with other people's characters in real time made a certain persona that I quite liked and wanted to be able to reference in other contexts and settings, especially given how it's impossible to play him anymore.

I took some of the elements I found interesting in the original designs and took them in a different direction. more notably- wearing a skirt-robe-thingy; having a hood; having bird motifs (I put a lot more emphasis on that part here, because I wanted moar birds on the original than the paltry few there were); having some bone motifs (human in the original but birds are cool, i wanted moar birds, I wanted to have all of the birds, mwuahaha); being maaaagic; a smirk. I added some bits that thought are cool, like disembodied wings and disembodied wing monsters (these sort of just randomly came to my thoughts before starting the picture, but, you know, birds), thought it would be a cool visual to have him have many wings that can actually be commanded to detach from his outfit and attack people. The original just kind of could summon one bird that was removed after one patch and didn't do anything except mark a debuff. And the rest is whatever I thought would look the best.

As far as the character goes, for all the posturing he's pretty harmless given how he's a highly specialized healer.

I really love your design concepts.  It's so clever and the wings really make him stand out.  I love the hoody too.   Excellent concept buddy.
