San's Sketch of 'The Glyph'-Ace of Spades' Colours by Estonius San's Sketch of 'The Glyph'-Ace of Spades' Colours by Estonius
Since I really dug :iconstevensanchez: Steven Sanchez's killer sketch of my original character "The Glyph"… , I decided to get it coloured by a few cool colourists with different "The Glyph" colour schemes.

Here's the third one as coloured by the awesome :icon00aceofspades00: 00AceOfSpades00! He made 2 versions of it; 1 with normal eyes and 1 with glowing eyes. I liked both; so, I made them into an animated GIF. Check out his gallery!:…

Also, here's the first coloured version:…

And here's the second coloured version:…

So, The Glyph, he's a character from a comic/story your making or going to make?
I've seen this guy a few times and now I'm kinda interested in who he is ^^

Thanks for your cool comment and question! =)

"The Glyph" is based off of a random doodle I drew years ago. "The Ankhgorians" were created even before that, based off of another random doodle. I combined elements from both of them to reach their current designs. Some of the things that influenced their designs and origins: ancient Egypt, sci-fi, cartoons, comic books, video games, and steampunk. The Glyph's name is tied to the ancient Egyptian(hiero)glyph(s) on his costume [the ankh on his belt buckle, the eye of Horus on his cybernetic palm, and the winged scarab on his back], which symbolize his connections to ancient Egypt and have direct ties to his still semi-mysterious origin. I have an origin story, and a few other storylines, but I am still developing the characters. I hope to do something with them in the future.

As far as basic origins go, thus far we know:

"The Glyph" was once fully human, but he was genetically altered into an "Ankhgorian"/human hybrid. After being genetically altered, "The Glyph" eventually lost his left claw/tentacle arm in an epic battle. "The Glyph" decided to get a cybernetic replacement that resembled a human arm, to honor his past, but he added an extendable metal coil tentacle to it, so it would semi-function like the lost "Ankhgorian" appendage he had become so accustomed to. Besides the usage of his claw and tentacles, "The Glyph" can shoot his cybernetic hand off like a missile and control it remotely, shoot plasma from the eye of Horus symbol on his cybernetic hand, teleport, and jump very high. "The Glyph" is also trained in martial arts (his weapon of choice is a khopesh, an ancient Egyptian sword) and acrobatics. And "The Ankhgorians" are an ancient alien race that have some similarities in both looks and abilities to "The Glyph".

Sounds awsome, I'll looking forward to seeing this come to life ^^.
In what way will you make the story? Comic? Book?
(Besides those curved swords, he likes a red lightsaber right? XD )

Thanks! =D

Most likely in comic book panel form.

And, yes, you are correct, sir; when co-starring in Star Wars' fanart, "The Glyph" does prefer a red lightsaber. ;)
