Death's Shadow by dragonofthesand Death's Shadow by dragonofthesand
Hollows shrieked in glee as they tore into the Shinigami. They seemed to come out of nowhere, a never ending sea of white masks and bloody claws. "We're being over run!!" A shinigami shouted fearfully before being sliced in half. "Where the hell are the reinforcements??" Shouted another. "The Hollow Calvary should be here soon sir!" A female shouted hoarsely as she deftly dispatched two hollows. Suddenly a ripping sound split the air, and a shadow was cast over everyone on the ground...

Nyx looked to the 6th seat of her squad as Angelica shuffled restlessly beneath her, sensing the battle raging below. "You know what to do." The woman merely nodded before drawing her sword, waiting for the captain and the others to leap into the fray. "Alright, let's head out!" Nyx shouted before urging Angelica off the platform on Acheron's massive form, taking out a mass of hollows as they landed. The rest of the group followed suit, and Acheron rose to a higher altitude.

The masked woman raised her sword in her left hand, the blade gleaming in the light of the moon. "Ease, Azrael..." The blade shimmered before a rather large, blood red skull with black horns encased her hand. Instead of the bone like attachments that usually appeared, inky black shadows poured out from the eye sockets, washing over her titanic mount and melding with him, only making Acheron a more fearful sight.

The hollows still alive shuddered at the sight, for now Death was among them. And Death was on the side of their enemies...


Aaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnddddddddddd I'm done! |D Bout damn time too. My SAI froze so I lost most of this, and pretty much had to redraw everything. Except for the limbs...I couldn't redraw those and make them look right so I turned them into shadow limbs |D

Anywho! These are my Hollow Rider OCs, Azrael and Acheron~ Whenever Az releases shikai, if she chooses not to use it as a weapon she can access those shadows, which can conceal her reiatsu completely, and either relax an opponent into a false sense of security, or instill utter terror in them so they're frozen on the spot.

Az only uses this technique with Acheron, as it's useless during combat since an enemy could easily attack or kill her before the shadows can take full effect.

Anyways, I hope you all like it, and don't mind how dark it is x"DD They're in Hueco Mundo anyways :p

Ffffff I think Az should be a little smaller ._.' Meh, I'll change it later...

that's quite a big hollow to ride
my OC Atlas has a slightly smaller mod hollow

Haha yes, I made him with the intention of him being something like an aircraft carrier, where he could carry many of the others in the Hollow Calvary if need be. He's actually a lot bigger than how he looks in the picture though...I suck at perspective lol ^^;

And your hollow is the unicorn one right?

:iconchikararyoku:
ChikaraRyoku Featured By Owner May 8, 2012
that's right, Onkyo, the mod hollow, modified for incredible speed
i myself also suck at perspective, but if you say that he's even bigger than that
than how enormous must that thing be. it's already the size of minazuki, (unohana's shikai)
how much bigger must it be?

(btw, you haven't submitted it to the hollow riders i see, but i'm sure it'll be accepted)
and if :iconriamazariel: hasn't noticed it yet, just notify her, i did the same
such an enormous modified hollow, so, besides its size, what are its modifications?

Well, preferably big enough to comfortably carry more than a couple hollows and their riders without much difficulty ^^ I've been running through size comparisons and I know for sure he's about the size of, or perhaps slightly shorter than one of the larger gillians height wise (from the wiki I read, gillians range from 4-6 stories tall, although if you ask me they look a lot bigger in the show lol xDD)

Actually I did submit it, it's already in the groups gallery under "Hollow Riders Members" :)

Well most of them are on his sheet (which is still in the works) but the main one is his empathic ability. He can influence the emotions of people around him, and like his name (Acheron, the Greek river of woe or pain) he likes to make enemies lose all hope and feel like they're drowning in their own emotions and give up all hope ^^

well, when Archeon brings the cavelry of hollow riders, all enemies better give up hope
with size, power, speed and what not other abilities all the other riders may have
woe to all who dare oppose the hollow riders

about the hollow riders,... when i check your art, by featured in groups,...
i don't see the hollow riders,... strange
how well, who am i to say you haven't submitted when you say you have,... a fool perhaps? but i'm not
and now i almost start rambling.
well, in case Atlas and Onkyo ever need a lift, Azrael and Archeon will be available me hopes

lol sorry couldn't help myself there xDDD


Yeah you have to click Show all (15) and up pops a list of all the groups it's featured in, and you can see the Hollow Riders in there xD

Haha Az and Acheron should be, Az doesn't like leaving Acheron alone and Acheron is too big to go anywhere without clearance xD
