I the Merchant by Kirbopher15 I the Merchant by Kirbopher15
Alias: Merchant Doesn't really consider either of his forms 'aliases'. He's very open in combat, and has an equal amount of power in his two forms. If one fails, he'll just revert to the other.

Power: In his blue form "I the Merchant" he is equipped with many powerful weapons that he pulls from his backpack shaped body. Swords, Saws. Spears, Daggers, Rings, Poles, Guns, you name it, he's probably got it. He can also absorb projectiles into his body and fire them back through his gun with more power, unless it's too much for him to take and it results in him losing HP. Meanwhile, his black form "U the Unbound" is also just as dangerous. Equppied with an ultra-power laser, fire bullets, flamethrowers, and a wave of slimey shots from his giant ring, U's a monster!

Origin: In the Season 2 Art contest, the winners were Coraxus, Cailen Crow and Betatronic. Betatronic got fist place, and also now my new hoster for TTA, he also created the site where the movie lies. "The Merchant" is a character that he created for when he won, and he made all of I's sprites, as well as U's, from scratch. There were so many, I couldn't use them all! Several weapons that had gone unused for I, and even more different shapes and powers for U that I never got to use, I felt really bad...

Voice: The Merchant was, of course, voiced by his creator, Betatronic, who used a robotic monotone and "salesman" attitude for I's vocals, while U he used a monstrous bunch of sounds. Again, I didn't get to use all of them due to time :<

Art: Okay, THIS one I really liked. I know I got a lot of details on I and U wrong from the original sprites, but I still liked how it turned out, especially the shading. Only thing I was pissed about was that I couldn't find the godamn gradient tool to help out on the 'inside' section of U, the rainbow patterns could've looked so much better...

Somehow, I don't think he'd be out of place saying 'Hello, stranger. Whattaya buyin'?'.

I could picture him saying that.

I liked the second form a lot better. For one just because it was all black and runic/tech/apocalyptic looking.

Two for the originality, especially in the sprites. Only the head could I recognize the base sprite for, which I believe was the head of an N.O. beam virus, but i'm not entirely sure. Came out very well, even if he was a little too annoying to bear in terms of dialougue. But hey, you can expect that since he was Nail's opponent. >.< XD

anyways, good job, I liked seeing a drawn version of the second form a lot.
