+DS Concept+:: Nothing to Fear by Droemar +DS Concept+:: Nothing to Fear by Droemar
"You feel these things. You know they're real. So do something with them."
"What am I supposed to do? walk up to her and say 'hey, I know you were raped'? That'll go over well."
"You'd be surprised what reaching out to another in need can do."
"You sound like an after-school special. Look, there's nothing I can do about it anyway, so why bother? I don't care."
"And what emotion is worse than apathy?"

Mmmm, not sure I like this one. Metuo's teeth look good, but doing his whole glittery-stars effect messes up his shading a lot. I think I got overconfident on this one because Metuo is one the firmest designs in my head. I was also trying to do an exercise using my lines as reflected light, which did not go over well. Weird how sometimes your favorite characters can turn out the worst.

Metuo is the dark hero of the story, a loner who was forced from his home for an unspeakable crime. He's very stoic, a tarnished knight who still tries to hold together a ragged code of honor, because it's better than being crushed by his guilt. Metuo also has a lot of faith in humanity's chance at redemption, so he often finds himself taking care of people he knows he really shouldn't, and urges others to shoulder the burden of the world along with him. Metuo has become much more three dimensional in personality since his first draft; he was kind of a one-liner badass. But my journal entry "I Steal!" goes into a bit more detail about that. Yay for stars.

I was gonna say, I really like the stars effect, they look awesome (and thoroughly glittery)

as a sidenote, sorry for dissappearing (twice) from AIM, looks like I won't be able to get back on until the monday after presidents day (hopefully) It figures the one day I really wanted to talk to someone on AIM we change classrooms for the first time. boo.

the dynamitism (is that a word?) of the pose is extremely well done, and i love how i can see practically every tendon and bone...

i definitely don't think this one turned out the worse...besides, since you two are on such good terms, i'm sure he won't mind :D

Hee hee. Actually, Metuo thinks the whole drawing thing is ridiculous ... but it doesn't stop him form posing once in a while. He's of the opinion he looks way too cartoon-y anyway.

This piece is very well made, just like the others. I can't wait to see more.

And I've been following up on the bits of the story so far, and I must say it's extremely captivating. Awesome job. =D

I love metuo's pelt even though you say the shading whent to crap, i think it still looks awesome. His muzzle seems odd tom e though for some reason..perhaps just the angle.

Great job!!
