Project Altara - Halloween 2017 Originally I wasn't going down the 'pop culture' route for this Halloween, but I was too pop culture it is! From left to right:

I went through my Netflix history and ran into Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Most everyone else had been decided, so Saewin happily took that costume choice.

For Shade, I wanted to find a horse from pop culture that wasn't just a different colored horse (ie Epona, etc) so he'd actually have some sort of costume. Found MLP:FiM characters on a list of pop culture horses and thought it paired nicely with Saewin! Again, I didn't want Shade's costume to be "dump a ton of hair dye on Shade" so I went with the Changling Queen. Couldn't get the wings to look right, so I figured Shade was just being uncooperative (can confirm, have tried putting a costume on a horse).

I've been addicted to Puzzles and Dragons recently, so wanted to pick a monster I owned from that. I choose Wise and Moral Goddess Sarasvati because it seemed like a style Vivvia might actually wear.

Onno's costume was decided before I really began planning costume ideas. He's just a sheet ghost. So spoopy.

I love Dark Souls so have to do that of course. Jumped around before settling on Taru as the Old Dragonslayer. Taru would find the Old Dragonslayer cooler than Ornstein based on name and dark powers.

Again, Moana was in my Netflix history so Kat is a 'princess' again!

Zyre originally was the Nameless King from Dark Souls III until I remembered Game of now he's the "Father of a Birb". Benu Rhaegal over Drogon so his colors can pop more and not just blend in to the people around him.

Crystal as Mewtwo is just a nod to her previous role in Pokemon comics. Flip flopped between Mega Mewtwo Y and regular Mewtwo, but MMY as a costume looked too boring from this angle.

Ante is the Grim Reaper and was from back when I was going to put everyone in 'sterotypical Halloween costumes'.

Happy Halloween everyone, have a fun and safe night!

Madoka Magica is so good. There are three movies, the first two is just a retelling of the anime series but the 3rd is it own thing. Personally I dislike the movie and like to think of the anime ending to be canon but it is still worth a watch nevertheless.

Also I just became aware of something, your original characters have so much fan-like official art done of them but still kinda lack a story. Once people become aware of what type of characters they are they might want to go back and revisit all of the art you done of them pre-story. If this was tumblr you could had just tagged them but I'm not sure how easily it would be to go back and find all of the art you did of them over the years on Smackjeeves.

@Zelkova: Ah I love it. Seen the anime, "rewatched" it via the movies, and saw the third movie. I didn't hate it as much as the internet seems to, but I can see why people like to treat it as non-canon.

Yeah I keep meaning to do little comics of them while I solidify the main comic ideas...but then I need to do sketches to figure things out or a holiday comes around.

Actually I go back and organize the pages on this comic from time to time. If you look at the Archive or the jump feature, there's a section called "Original Characters" where all of these are eventually put together. Though I do have these uploaded to other websites as well (which are linked above) where there is a tagging system and whatnot.
