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

I like it, any wilderness setting its awesome to me, being an outdoors-man. It would be interesting seeing or even challenging oneself (A human) to survive on Sangheilios. Nice work! (Btw what is CoH?)

Reminds me a bit of Ther 'Vadam's story, I think that's his name. How he was forced to abandon his keep when it was overrun by a rival keep's warriors and lived in the wild for some time, gathering support from other outcasts, and then returned to his keep and slaughtered the invaders.

Orro seems to have the mentality and spirit to surive and even thrive in the wild. Perhaps he'll share an equally glorious future?

Oh man ... is that the movie I'm thinking about??? Yes it is! That was the movie memory of a lifetime for me ...

Orro pretty much doesn't want anything to do with keep life, after the hell he was put through as a kid due to his condition. So on that matter, it's not likely he will rise to take over a keep anytime soon.

Aye, that movie was, still is, one of my big favs :)

I see. His condition? I'm missing something here. I'll probably find the answer in your latest fan fiction, won't I? :)

I remember I was in hospital at the time and we were gathering in the TV room one evening to watch a movie. The nurses called it a doll movie so I was like .. feh, silly. But even the fourty year olds said it's an amazing movie so in the end I watched it. I'm glad I did.

[link] That's Orro (though at the time of posting I didn't have a name for him).

Anyway, I do want to write a fic for him (as I really want to write a male/female relationship story again...too much male/male from me lately, lol) and while Orro is largely set in terms of his background and such, the other main character can't make up her mind....

Argh! I see. I did see that piece, or perhaps it was in its WIP stage because I didn't notice there was something wrong with him? ...

Hm, that's a shame, on the other hand it might give him a unique story and life's tale? It makes his chosen way of life all the more impressive as well.

Ah ha ha, so that's what you've been up to? :) I have yet to read your latest story obviously. Well good luck with filling out his life's story and getting the obnoxious character to fall in line as well. :D

If I can get my writting muse back that is. It's run off somewhere...I think it's hiding somewhere in the City of Heroes game (which has been sucking hours of my freetime as of late).

Thanks, I'll need it!

I'm sure it'll come back sooner or later. Like another DA friend told me a while ago when mine was off somewhere: call her on the phone! :)

Very nice But why only 2 mandibles? :?

Slaskia Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
He has four: I use the The Duel style for their mandibles, where the upper two are almost completely hidden by 'cheek skin' (for lack of a better phrase). Plus, that his face is in shadow makes them harder to see....
