Art of the Ninja by kilala97 Art of the Ninja by kilala97

Being the art obsessed child I was, I made up these characters and this concept. They all represent different types of art. They are able to become ninjas and harness the power of the art they represent and use their skills to fight off art block creatures and inspire people XD I drew out some these characters for the first time when I was around 10 but now that I'm better at drawing, I decided to start drawing them again and maybe develop them more as well as redesign them :D These six are the main ones but I have a few more.  I also have a sculptor, actor and writer who I will design later.

From left to Right:

Paige, Digi, Palette, Cameron, B and Crescendo


The hero/chosen one of this world.  She represents a blank page/canvas.  Potential, the beginnings of creativity, freedom and unlimited possibilities.  She finds herself in a world filled of artistic ninjas not knowing how she got there.  She is found by Digi who recognizes her as the chosen ninja.  She is capable of using all kinds of art forms but needs to be taught.


A digital art ninja.  She is the youngest of the group and a very skilled fighter for her age.  She has a giant stylus that she fights with.  She uses it to draw out anything she wants and brings it to life.  She uses a keyboard to control what she creates.  The stylus is also pretty great for whacking monsters with XD

Digital ninjas are quick, intelligent and efficient.


A traditional art ninja.  She is the oldest of the group and the self proclaimed leader of them.  She fights using her paint brush sleeves and she can summon a giant paintbrush if she wishes.  She uses both of these things to draw whatever she wants in a similar way to Digi.  She is probably the most skilled of all the ninjas.

Traditional ninjas are precise, graceful and strong.


A photography ninja.  He is rather inexperienced compared to the other four but the most experienced in his clan which is why he is the head of it. He's quite clumsy but an amazing fighter when it counts.  Unlike Digi and Palette he cannot summon things that he can control.  He usually fights like a typical ninja would but he has a unique ability where he can temporarily freeze his opponents.  It only lasts for a couple of seconds but it comes in handy when it comes to trying to dodge attacks.  He likes using a flash of light to blind enemies for a while.

Photography ninjas are very precise and have amazing aim. 


A dancing ninja.  B is the twin brother of Palette.  He relies on strength and physical ability as a ninja.  He is very agile and light on his fight.  His favorite type of dance is definitely breakdancing but he's pretty great at ballet too XD

Dancing ninjas are known for their strength, agility and balance.  Some say that these ninjas never fall unless completely knocked out.  They are also great at predicting the movements of their opponents making them very difficult to hit.


A musical ninja.  Crescendo is a quiet one and he prefers to speak through music.  He fights by primarily using instruments as weapons.  He can use them either physically or by playing them.  Each instrument has a unique use but most of them are used to hurt enemies' ears by playing them loudly.

Musical ninjas are weapon masters

Imagine a ninja that was the ninja of colour
like she could fight by using colours as emotions
for example: 
Red: Anger
Pink: Love
Green: Envy or Brave
Yellow: Happy
Purple: Sly/Manipulation

And she had rainbow coloured hair

Will you make a comic? Or a vidya game with these characters? (Assuming you know programing, but you probably don't because programing is hard.)

Is there any room for a word ninja on your team? If so I have an idea.
kilala97 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That would be the writer mentioned in the description. I've been working on him for a while. Still haven't decided what kind of fighter he'd be but I imagine him being a very technical sort of fighter
AZREAL258 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2014
I actually have an idea to offer if you like.
ArilPhrost Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2014
You've got some real interesting work going on here! I look forward to seeing more!
