+DS Concept+:: Finximmani by Droemar +DS Concept+:: Finximmani by Droemar
"What's it like ... to not have a soul?"
"It’s like ... walking around with the feeling that you’ve forgotten something. Something really important, or you left behind something that belonged to you that was really special. And then you just realize that you haven’t forgotten anything, you never had it in the first place. But even knowing that doesn’t make it go away; you’re still looking for that special thing. Nigh says we’re born knowing we’re incomplete, humans and daemons. We’ve got to find each other to make ourselves complete.”

Yay! It's Trounce, everyone's favorite hero from the Monster comic! Better known as Vindex. He needed a huge revamp of his concept work, namely his warform. His "normal" wolf form sat in my sketchbook for a long time because I wasn't sure if I liked the design or not. Then I found myself using it as reference all the time, so inked it, and said when I had a decent warform to put with it I'd color it.

Finximmani is a daemon word derived from Latin's "finxi" - to fashion, mold, or form and "immanitus" - savagery. It means "warform" directly, "to shape savagery" literally. Some daemons are gifted with a natural shapeshift for the purposes of battle, which has led to huge monsters like the behemoth, leviathan, and hydra having a place in our myth. It's a very rare gift, and seen as very powerful. It's the reason Vindex got picked up off the streets by Nigh's quarum.

This is also the first drawing I've completed completely at home, not at work. Yay for drawing at home! And yay for 5,000 pageviews! Wish I coulda gotten the screengrab. Thanks to all who watch me and like my work. *bows*

did you make that quote up? that's so cool, nice art too, it's figin awesome!
Droemar Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2007
Yeah, the quote is from the novel that these characters are from. But I don't think that version will ever see the light of day again.
Unknowncreation Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2007
that's sad, I liked the comic, must have been a pain to ink though XD well anyway it's awesome, so congratulations!

Man, that's an awesome character! The design is really unique, I like it a lot!
Sehvrin Featured By Owner May 10, 2007
Cool, and it looks very good :clap:

Though his frontlegs in his non-warform seems at an little od angle, otherwise it's nice :nod:

Dynamic and truly impressive work. The textures you've incorporated here are absolutely refreshing compared to much of the digital art I've seen on dA. The lineart in itself is gorgeous, and I love the line-width variations.

I really enjoyed the short-story comic you did for Vindex, and his forms are beautiful. Inspiring work for a hopeful / wannabe graphic novelist. :)
Droemar Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2007
I bow to the patience of graphic novelists. I've had absolutely no patience for extensive comic work!
JillianLambertArt Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
My patience could use a lot of work, too; the comics I've made over the years have been one-pagers!

Just thought I'd let you know that when I full view the picture, it comes out as blank with a red X in the corner, and when I right click the picture to try to get the link so I can see the full-sized picture by linking it--it comes up as 'blank'.

Maxrunn Featured By Owner May 22, 2006  Hobbyist Artist

smoldering075 Featured By Owner May 22, 2006
cool! like the difference in coloring...the warform feels darker, a side to Vin we usually don't say...i also like how you placed the characters...

nice effect

the warform looks pumped compared the to tiny, normal the nerd that grows up to be a body-builder or something :D
ShoeboxJackal Featured By Owner May 22, 2006
Beautiful! Stunning detail and colouring work! I loved those comics, I hope to see more sometime :D

The warform is amazing, got to love those horns.

Sweet. His warform looks awesome, there's just no other word for it. I espescially like those back feet, with the little floaty feathers and the fur on the back of the ankles and the paw pads? Definitely :+fav: worthy.
