Sickbed Doodles: Erzulie the Eliotrope by WishingStarInAJar Sickbed Doodles: Erzulie the Eliotrope by WishingStarInAJar
Before people start pointing at me because 'WAT, WISH MADE AN ELI0DERP OC??!', I'll start with saying this:

I do not fully support the currently known Eliotrope lore, no matter how little it is. I think it is garbage, but I have certain hope for it with it getting touched upon in the upcoming third season of Wakfu. I don't know what will be done with the Eliotropes in Wakfu season 3, but I sure as hell hope it fixes their current retcon mess. Call me harsh or vindictive with saying all this, but that has been my stance on the Eliotropes ever since they were thrown into the games and wedged into the Krosmoz lore.

BUT, there is no denying that there are some interesting Eliotrope OCs out there. I am more interested in them than I am in the (so far) released lore. Some OCS (not all, unfortunately) bring a bit of light in what I think is a straight up confusing mess. Before one forgets, one of my best online friends has an Eliotrope OC I plain out adore, so I am not fully against Eliotropes. 
I decided to make an Eliotrope OC to come at peace with the good qualities of the Eliotropes, but also to accept that they ARE a part of the Krosmoz. There is no ignoring them, they are a part of things. I don't fully surrender to them, I still got my negative opinions, but I will try and be less 'hiss hiss grr' towards Eliotropes in general.

The inspiration for Erzulie came from me trying to settle on a class in the Wakfu MMO when I was thinking of giving the game another shot for the billionth time. Shot missed, as per usual, because I don't enjoy the gameplay of the game, but the inspiration stuck. An idea began to form, a background started to fall in place for this Eliotrope I created to try out the class. She will be the key to introducing Eliotrope lore in future Wakfu fan fictions (aka Alys' story). I'll touch further on this in my next submission of Erzulie, where she will (hopefully) have a finalized design rather than some rough sketches.

So there you have it, it is official: I made an Eliotrope OC, or at least made some rough designs for her. Taadaaaah~ Saditadaaah 


Sketches and Erzulie belong to me
Eliotropes belong to Ankama

Couldn't have said it better myself- my stance on the elios is that they felt kind of tacked-on, too, but that there have been some cool fan characters to branch off of them. They feel like they were added in so that people could play as an eliatrope-esque class in the online game without contradicting the series' mythos, but the execution still felt pretty sloppy. I think that connecting their existence to the eliacube or emerub in some way might actually work better if done right. Like, they could be empty shells/specters of the eliatropes that were sealed away in emerub, with the elios being shells of wakfu that were created in the krozmos' attempt to fill in all of the sudden blank spaces that would occur from so many people being suddenly whisked away to a pocket dimension. 

Okay, so my hypothetical idea is equally crazy, but I'd accept a retcon like that over the current explanation for them. X'3

Also, I love how you drew Erzulie's face! She looks very pretty! ^v^

I'm okay with the idea of them being a part of Yugo and all, but them getting scattered around through different time periods without us knowing for how long they live, and then (presumably) disappearing somewhere mid season 2 is just hella confusing and not funny. You try and base a proper (and active) OC on that wibbly wobbly shit without having to break some rules; it's hard.

Thank you!

I laughed when I read "Elioderp". XD
When you told me more about Eliotrope lore, I couldn't do anything but feel the same as you toward this class popped out of nowhere. Though the official lore is not very developed and doesn't make much sense, I agree in what you said about some Eliotrope OCs being so good that made me appreciate this class, and your Erzulie surely is a good example of what I call a good Eliotrope OC.
Her design is good and I'm about to read what you wrote about her in your last submission, cause I'm sure you're doing a good job on her. C:

Ah, okay then. I feel bad for them and honestly I don't feel there's any point in making a OC of them. That's not targeted at you btw, but in general.

:iconwishingstarinajar:

Why is there no point in making one if the memory wipe happens after the death of the Eliotrope OC....? I am sorry, but I can't really grasp this logic.

I'm sorry, I'm not trying to sound rude, Really I'm not. I mean I just feel bad for the Eliotrope, I mean I wanted to make one too, because they looked so cool. But After seeing/reading their history, I felt like there was no point. But that's me, I'll probably still make one in the future.

You weren't rude at all, it was just your way of thinking which didn't make much sense to me. It's of course tragic when nobody remembers someone after they pass away, but that's seriously something one doesn't need to worry or think about when they aren't planning on killing their character off. If your OC is alive and you plan on keeping it that, then why bother worrying about such?

Baby Erzzz!!I told you already I love her sooo much~~
I'm glad your point of view on eliotropes has changed over time, and it is true, they are a part of the lore. Whatever what you think or do, they are there, they exist! I believe thats all they wanted since the beginning tbh XD They deserve a chance in here and I really, REALLY hope season 3 will bring in points that will fix the messed up lore, because it really needs some patching up.

Anyways, wonderful designing as always, and I am a big fan of her markings :heart:

It's like a form of therapy, I guess. Convert me, Erzulie (and season 3)!

Thank you. She has some more markings but you'll see them better in the finalized design I'll be working on.

Oh Gosh! What a beauty (and sassy! ) Eliotrope! :heart:

You know, I was really angry  like you when Eliotropes came out back in 2014 , I just hated the idea, totally anti-rolistic in my opinion.
But, the creation of V , my main Oc, was a change for me xD  And the idea of the "errors and bastards" of the world was amazing and super original *-* 
Hope it will get good changes in you someday! >w<

I couldn't wrap my head around the whole concept and the reasons behind their creation (for the game, etc), and I still don't. But like you did with V, I hope Erzulie will keep me a bit more friendly when it comes to Eliotropes. I do think it/she will help a bit.

Well, this my OC Eliotrope yaminokitsune.deviantart.com/a…
He's kinda plain as you can see... so I wanted to know if I could 'use' the one you made to inspire myself with clothing and marking... and whatever can be done...
Cause, to be honest, I suck... like really suck at fashion...

I don't really imagine your guy wearing a turtleneck leotard and stocking-like boots though >.> but yeah, if you think it's helpful. Just don't copy anything, stay creative and continue to keep the in-game designs as your main inspiration (it's what I did too).

:iconyaminokitsune:
YaminoKitsune Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2017
Err... no of course not... But maybe it would help a bit for the style and the stylization of the clothing... >.>
Thanks for the advices tho, I plan too, even if the in game stuff is kinda limited :/

:iconwishingstarinajar:
WishingStarInAJar Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2017
It is limited, which frustrated me to no end when I tried puzzling Erzulie together; had to take a lot of artistic liberties there. Yugo isn't exactly the most inspirational looking guy out there either, so the designs for (especially the male) Eliotropes are a bit lacking in the games. They are fragments of him, after all, so you can use him and any known past life versions of him for inspiration as well, when it comes to clothes. Not that he dressed very different over the centuries -.-
Also, have a look at other Eliotrope OCs, particularly male ones; there are quite a few unique designs out there which still stay true to the Eliotrope appearance but aren't a carbon copy of the game models. Keep the iconic head wear, the fully blue eyes, some blue markings and pale skin and you're good to go.

:iconyaminokitsune:
YaminoKitsune Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2017
Yeah, i was super disappointed myself. They had way more stuff on Dofus!
It's true that Yugo, even if powerful and cool, isn't the most fashionable character in the Krozmoz... >.> And i think the canon Eliotrope is already pretty similar to him. They just added a belt a some decoration to the clothes.
I looked for some but the ones I found were pretty similar to canon... maybe I need to search more...
Head wear (hat), fully blue eyes, blue marking (when I made mine, i thought those couldn't/shouldn't be changed...), pale skin. Got it.
I'm sorry if I'm so annoying but you're the one who have the best wakfu design character I ever saw... Can't help myself but to ask you for advices... >///>

:iconwishingstarinajar:
WishingStarInAJar Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2017
Of course the canon Eliotropes are similar to Yugo. They are him xD Every Eliotrope, even an OC is linked to Yugo as a part of him. Literally. So it's no surprise there are so many resemblances. 

Just keep in mind I am not the only one out there. There are plenty of artists who also make great looking and well developed Wakfu OCs. Just check out the people who leave a comment on my work or go through my favorites to find them.

Come to think of it, I have drifted very far away from the Wakfu fanbase in general.
Like, I hadn't thought about that before, but I don't really... do much related to the franchise. Hum.
