.:Night Life:. by Rhylem .:Night Life:. by Rhylem
Let's start off the year with the character that spawned the Meta series into existence. If it weren't for Bate, I probably wouldn't be drawing about MK's past...or have any of my other characters, for that matter. x) I remember when I didn't even have a name for him; I just called him 'the flight instructor.' It's strange how one comic, and a stupid idea changes everything. :XD:

Nice work on the night sky.I really like the smile on Bate's face too as he's watching the sky for stars.

Sir Bate will probably kill me for saying this, but he looks absolutly adorable in this! He's really starting to grow on me, kind of like my own puffball OC, Dusk, but of course, Sir Bate is one of the good guys.

You know, for a guy that doesn't like to much violence, Bate sure is good at it. XD But that's why we love him so much! You're welcome.

Pfff- you don't need to waste your time drawing me anything. I feel bad if anyone takes their time away from their art just to give me something. :icondragoncryingplz:

No no! I said that I wanted to draw him! ;u; Please don't feel bad. If it's something that I enjoy doing, then I'll draw him, darn it! :XD: That is... If it's alright with you~ >u<

how did you come up with "bate" anyways? its a cool name

Oh, gosh...how do I put it in a nutshell.

His name wasn't originally Bate....actually, he wasn't even a flight instructor when I first made him. I dunno what happened, but I drastically changed his character one day. I gave him the role of flight instructor instead of another role he was originally going to be. I was looking up different bird meanings, and the word Bate came up. Apparently it means 'to flap wings wildly.'

Anyways, the name suited him quite well and yeah...the rest is history. C=
