Media Controls Ref 2016 by UnknownSpy Media Controls Ref 2016 by UnknownSpy
Added information!

-Controls are genderless! But they use either he, she or they pronouns!
-When a Control dies, they respawn with a new eye.

Play: Media Control (she) is a serious and calm looking Control with a bit introverted personality. Play doesn't have powers which are negative or meant to hurt others. She has telekinesis like powers, which are meant to put things in motion. She requested to have swords made for her so she could help to kill off glitches. She hates the feeling of being useless and finds huge satisfaction in making progress.

Pause: Media Control (he) is Play's partner. They work together to fight glitches. They have become pretty close friends and wouldn't want to change that. Pause is able to summon ribbon like strings from the ground, which he uses to bind down enemies. Pause is a silent, naive and childish kind of Control. 

Stop: Media Control (he) is a grumpy looking cube, he doesn't understand sarcasm. And Shuffle likes to make fun out of him because of that. Stop is able to summon cubes which have the power to paralyze or stop other Controls and/or their abilities. He can also create shields and walls to protect him and/or his team. He is part of Cursors team.

Eject: Media Control (he) works as a gatekeeper. He makes sure no unwanted visitors travel through the portals in/out the worlds Record has made. He is a workaholic and gets stressed out a lot. He doesn't have any powers himself, so he uses a sword to protect himself.

Record: Media Control (she) is able to record her opponent's moves and create holograms which fight for her.

Shuffle: Media Control (she) is a rebellious mean little marshmallow. She hangs out with Stop, and usually teams up for missions and stuff. She is able to transform her "hair", which makes her more agile than what she actually looks like. She belongs to Cursors team.

Repeat: Media Control (he) is a trixter, he doesn't follow the rules and likes to cause mayhem. He hangs out with Cursor's team and likes to follow Reset around. He is also good friends with Rewind.

Rewind
: Media Control (he) is very loyal to Record. He has sacrificed his life fighting off glitches protecting her. Rewind has the ability to fast forward and rewind actions. But when he isn't working, he hangs out with Repeat and... Causes mayhem for fun.

Quick question, have you figured out exactly what powers Record has and what exactly she does?
Reply
:iconunknownspy:
UnknownSpy Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Well her "battle powers" are a bit hard to explain I guess, but she can project a screen which will copy the enemies what goes through it. So if the enemy is attacking, Record will throw that screen towards them so it will record the moves it made, and now the recorded move will attack the enemy. 

There was something about her creating or watching over the worlds that were created. I just don't remember the details--

Ah, okay, no problem, thanks! I just needed to be familiar with her abilities so that I can base her human character off of that.

I dont wanna copy your Play's power telekinesis, but can there be other forms of telekinesis?
Reply
:iconunknownspy:
UnknownSpy Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Other Play's can have different kinds of powers, it doesn't even have to be telekinesis.
But what other forms are you talking about?

nekocat91 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2017
well like my Play, can make little play buttons from her palms, while calm and not in battle the buttons are soft, but when angry or in battle the buttons are sharp and pointy, she can throw the buttons at the glitch like weapons, and when there is a lot of glitch she can connect them into a giant play button that she can turn with her telekinesis and it can be a giant drill, or shield when connected

Gotta say after looking at all of these not only do they seem fun as heck to draw, I also haft to say what creative designs. Finding ways to invoate and use the set button 'presets' but make them into characters is actually really neat. It seems simple but it could have been done any number of ways and I'm a fan of this one.

I came across these characters by accident while I was adoptable surfing. I don't think I've ever seen anything more clever in my life. I've seen human-inspired objects before, but I've never thought to put characteristics to VCR symbols. (at least that was what I thought of) This has got to be the most unique looking creation I have ever seen and I give props to you for your creativity.

Very nice work! I'm truly impressed. ♥
