0 - 10 Anti-Sue:
You might want to add a few more features to your dragon so that they aren't too boring.

11 - 20 Balanced Character:
Your dragon has a good amount of features and abilities. They don't have too many so aren't too powerful.

21 - 30 Borderline Mary-Sue:
You should take off a few features from your dragon. You don't want to have a too powerful or attractive character.

30+ Mary-Sue:
You should really think through all of their powers and abilities because your character might really annoy some people. Try not to make your character too beautiful or powerful and maybe come up with an original background if you scored low in that category.

Cynder Elements Bar by Crystal-Dragon1
Cynder Elements Bar
this is the selection of elements Cynder will be able to use in TLoC. they're all in a ribbon because this is kind of how they will appear in the game. this bar will be placed at the bottom in the left hand corner. you can scroll through the elements with the mouse wheel and select the one you'd like to use. however, the whole bar wont be visible all the time, only the element you have selected will be. i tried to set it up this afternoon but Blender hates me.

any feedback is welcome and much appreciated.

Cynder and her abilities belong to Activision.
Design and TLoC to me

Questions for me

What brought you to deviantART?
I first joined DeviantART because of a comic i noticed while looking for some reference pics of Spyro and Cynder for an art project at school. i stopped and read the entire comic and saw some other stuff on the site, so i decided to make an account.

2- Favorite childhood movie?
dose 13 count as childhood? is so, How To Train Your Dragon. if not, then probably Finding Nemo and an old cartoon called Dot and the Kangaroo.

3- Horror, spoof, chick-flick, action or other?
not sure what spoof is lol, so probably comedy/kids movies (they may be corny but i love 'em)

4- To you, what's the best time of year?
SPRING! and summer too. as long as its not cold i'm happy :D

5- What media of art is your favorite? (Traditional, Digital, Tradigital...)

6- Cookies or cakes?
ooh a tough one :D. right now it's cake because i can't eat cookies...or i'm not supposed to ;), stupid braces.

7- If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
in a little town in southern Queensland i can't remember the name of lol. all i know is that its close enough to a major city so that i wouldn't be cut off, but out far enough to own a reasonable amount of land (i can't stand living in suburban areas. all those people so close together creep me out. a city is out of the question lol :D)

8- Favorite number runnin out of ideas here XD

9- Would you: travel forward in time, or go back?
I have no idea, i'd be paranoid about going either way and messing things up XD. probably the way in the past, dinosaur times XD


Questions for the tagged
1- if you could meet any fictional character, who would you pick?
2- if you met one of your own characters, how would you react? and who would you most like to meet?
3- favorite food?
4- how did you get into art or writting?
5- sunny day or rainy day?
6- what would you most like to have access to, advanced technology (as in futuristic kind of stuff) or magic
7- what is your LEAST favorite movie?
8- best prank you ever pulled?
9- do you like reading?
10- classic, TLoS or Skylander's Spyro

I tag...
:iconmre380::icondarcykalaw::icontoa-ignicus::iconalicefox11::iconlilithedragon: i can't be bothered to tag anyone else. you don't have to do it if you don't want to :)
