Ladon by darksilvania Ladon by darksilvania
Eleventh of 12

Ladon "The apples of the Hesperides"

Power: He posses a variety of abilities who make him a quietly strong foe. His first and main power is a super keen vision, he can shoot any targert at almost any leght withouth failing. Also, he posses eyes al over his body (198 more to be precise), so he can see in any direction at any momenth he wants. He has a superpowered smell sense, and heat vision, just like snake does, but a hundred times more powerful. If he is injured, he can heal his wound by sheding his skin, and can do it as much as he likes. Also, he can stretch his limbs. The most notorious ability is the power to release living snakes from his body, which can be both venomous or constrictor.

Weapon: "Amphisbaena"- A pair of sword-shotguns with unlimited ammo. They work bot as long range and close combat weapons. Named after the two headed snake.

Weakness: Again is a weakpoint, and it is his golden apple heart, the only place where he cant heal injuries.

I love it! It reminds me of the serpent and the forbidden fruit in the garden of Eden, I thought one of his abilities would be to manipulate his oppenents into doing what he wants them to do...to a certain exstenet of course

i can imagine this guy originally being a guy who loved snakes and one day in {prison} he wished for someway to break out of prison then suddenly tonnes of snakes start poring into his cell covering him making LADON then he just breaks the doors down fires a cobra at a guard then kicks another guard in the stomach throws him into a cell lifts him up and decapitates him with ones of his Amphisbaena ;D.

So, im thinking about making a moba (Like League of legends or Hereos of newrth) and me and 4 other guys have got the programming ready to go, but we need good art for our hereos. First we thought it would be cool to use characters from videogames like Master Chief or Mario (You get the point) But someone pointed out that there would be to many legal issues. So to the point, i showed my friends some of your paintings, and we all agreed that they looked badass, so i wonder if i have permission to use your chestpiece guys as minions and guys like Ladon as champions? Of course we will give you full credit, and if the game actually makes it anywhere (Wich it probably wont) you can expect a payment(?) in some way.
Thanks so much if you decide to help us!

I think he was always shown as curled around a tree like a serpent. TECHNICALLY he would have been a dragon, but he acted like a giant serpent. . . But that's just my guess. :shrug:

awesome design but his powers are kinda overrated...how can u ever beat this guy? even the other ones he made can't match up lol, he shoots with unlimited ammo and never misses, if u get close u get stabbed, u can't even get close because his "198" will see u before u even get close, he can release snakes and heal, he can smell ur ass even if hes asleep... HOW DO U KILL THIS GUY?!?! even his heart isn't much of a weakness lol, how do u get to it? XD

you blook his sight and smell with some kind of smoke/gas attack, cool your body to avoid heat vision, and shoot him in the apple from a safe distance, was that so hard to figure?

ok ok thats clever but tell me... HOW DO U SHOOT HIM!?! if the gas is covering him it also covers ur aim since HE is covered... good luck aiming the apple then when he's clouded with smoke, PLUS he will just release a bunch of snakes in every direction to find u and cooling ur body isn't very easy when fighting a 198 eyed man-snake lol, i'd be pissing out all my fluids from every hole i have if i was battling him...any other way? i'd be glad to hear it :)

This is not something to be said lightly, but I must say.. This is your best work ever. It's simply mind bending!! the endless amount of detail, the tail, the colours, the research behind it all, the story and of course the eeriness of it all. :clap:
And the most incredible is that it's just pen and paper ^^

Ladon, the dragon with 100 heads. Or was it 1000 I can't quite remember. Anyway, this is pretty epic and its the first practical gunblade design I've seen in a long time. It's like a gun with a bayonet that is built into the entire barrel.

Also, people who mention Squall can go fuck off. Gun blades are not an original idea and he didn't do them first. He just made them popular using a weapon model that made next to no sense. Where the hell was the barrel on that thing anyway?

So yeah, epic take on the legend and the tie in with the golden apples. I assume we have Cerberus for last, can't wait =).

Squall did not do them first he made them popular with a useless design it was only good for close range because it had no barrel so there is no way it could shoot
