Outcast by Slaskia Outcast by Slaskia
"They call themselves the strong ones...feh...how can they be strong when they are protected by four sturdy keep walls and with food always available? Their comforts make them weak and complicant, never realising that in a moment they can lose everything and become an outcast like me, forced to live on whatever nature provides, if nature deems you worthy of it.
No, they are not the strong ones, it is I, an outcast, and other outcasts like me, that know what true strength is."
- Orro, the 'Shadow'.

I've been working on this a few hours everyday (between CoH play sessions and other things) for about a week. I'm not completely happy with it, being it's very rare for me to go full blown on scenery like this and thus have little experience coloring it, but I am happy enough. I know my shadows/highlights are likely wonkey in more than one area...so do hit me too badly for that....

And yes, the mystery character I posted a bit back now has a name: Orro (unintentionally named after a Mystic from the movie 'The Dark Crystal').

Man, you can TELL he's a B.A.M.F. ... :D

First and foremost, the BACKGROUND!!! :la: IT. IS. AWESOME. Looks like the kind of thing you'd see in a rustic painting, I think? I love it, very impressive. *applauds*

And Orro there, he is very, VERY well-drawn. His pose climbing the rocks, his partially-shadowed expression from the super-epic cloak (cloaks make everything 12x better :D ) it's all awesome. And I noticed a rather non-traditional sheathed sword there on his waist. Quite a nice look, considering how most Sangheili swords have the horizontal hilt rather than the vertical one shown here. :)

And one last thing... do I smell Elder Scrolls inspiration coming off of this? :lmao:

Once again, excellent work Slask. Once again, the crowd is in awe. :D
