I'm not sure if this deserves it's own upload, but it makes explaining Gale and his other identities easier.
'Gale' is a catch-all name I sometimes use for different assumed identities of the same character.
Each of Gale’s identities is distinguishable by hair length, style and colors, and most belong in a different time period. They’re all the same dude, but each is a different century (give or take) during his life. The existing identities only cover a portion of his total 2400 years (more if you count Tio). They are not reincarnations. He has lived the 2400 years in it’s entirety and has memory of as much of it as can be hoped for. He usually starts a new life after a hibernation, which can last between months to 36 years on average, or more, but he will assume new identities as necessary to function in society. He doesn't age anymore. He appears to be middle aged or into his early fifties. The only ones that show an age difference are those of his young life, before his merger with Hhoota.
Left to right, starting in the top left corner.
Active. Tio is constantly running places. He wants to see everything. He started as a spoof so I could draw interactions with Allison’s lockjaws in a more appropriate time period, now I’m pretty sure I’m keepin’ him. His hair is reddish brown with gray, his eyes are gray.
Mellow. Patient. Kindly. Goofy. Puts up with Jacky with flying colors. Plenty capable of getting extremely aggravated. Might have a slight limp on some days (years and years after Billy’s injury) Dark brown hair (darkest shade), gray eyes.
Slow moving, grumpy, seems to be falling apart. The lightness of his hair is natural graying after a period between hibernations that is more extended than usual. Gray brown hair, gray eyes.
Don’t know. I was trying out Greek hairstyles and this emerged.
(Ancient Greece, probably his 20s) He’s young and athletic, and borders on short tempered. He’s used to stepping up and defending himself and may be a little too quick to do so. Dark brown hair, blue eyes, youthful face compared to the others. Head shot could stand to look younger, but I lost interest before fixing it.
(Ancient central or northern Europe, late 20s, 30s, 40s) Both incarnations of Marmareon, Greek or Celtic, are not necessarily different from the others in personality, but the time period and circumstances may make them appear more brutal. Gruffer. More direct. Incredibly curious. Wanderlust. Dark brown hair (spiked, either with clay or resin/oil). Blue eyes. His eyes don’t gray until after his merger with Hhoota, which does't happen until he turns 53.
Recently woken from hibernation. Grumpy. His english is bad, seems to prefer speaking Greek. His eyes usually have bags under them, and he’s more or less crippled. Billy has a temper. Not sure if he bleached his hair himself or if it happened while he was hibernating. His hair is brown in places and dirty blonde in others. Gray eyes.
Depending on how long he’s out his hair will get pretty long, but it might take the full 36 years, or more, to get this bad. The growth is slower when he’s sleeping? Not sure.
The faces may look familiar. That’s because I took existing heads that looked on model and used them to create a new turn around with features matched mark for mark.
Hoping this will answer some questions I think are still lurking in my gallery about Gale that never got answered.
