Excuse Me by hellcorpceo Excuse Me by hellcorpceo
Challenge #1 for VoS

Go to Viridis and gather some healing herbs from the fields, try to play nice, we don't want to start any conflict... for the time being.

Kavus is having trouble finding the feverfew, so he's looking for someone to help him. Unfortunately, he's put so much effort into looking big and scary (and killing things, and making sure everyone knows about the things he's killed) that when he needs to ask an innocent, non-big-and-scary question, the nice people of Viridis tend to run away.

Poor Manu. :C

Manu belongs to =3712

lololololol I love you art~~~ Do you have any tips for a -crappy- young artist like myself?
hellcorpceo Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Oh man, my advice is usually pretty bad! I guess just keep drawing all the time, and practice drawing from life if you can? (That last part helped me a ton!)
NoisyBunny Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Well I'm pretty good on paper it digital that killss
hellcorpceo Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Well, that's just a matter of getting used to the tools! I spent a lot of time scouring DA for tutorials--I still do, actually. XD It took me a lonnnng time to figure out how to use Photoshop properly, and I'm still learning at it.

You can really be proud of your drawing skills. I was sure that this was a screenshot straight out of a movie.
Excellent job.

Imagine your precision in prespective, in ANIMATION. It would look 3D.
baren777 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2010

Laserbot Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2010  Hobbyist Filmographer
this should be a show love it! nice screen capture look to it well done!
Bashtal Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2010
I love the movement of this still and how you can pretty much imagine the conversation without any dialogue.

"Can you help me find-"
"-Some herbs....?"

...Why do I think Teal'c from Stargate SG-1?
Escapistam Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2010   General Artist
Loving this character! The kind that looks like a toughie who's actually a softie except he really is just a toughie xD (y/n?)
The design is really nice and clean, and it's nice to see characters with facial markings that don't stand out as looking arbitrary (this goes for both Kavus & Manu).

Real nice overall! I second the motion that the cleanliness of this made me think it might be an animation still (a fake one, but still!) I would totally watch this if it were real.
aereosa Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2010
I love the poor little dude's expression. Pardon my ignorance, but what is VoS? It sounds rather cool. :XD:

Yeah! I was a little put out at first since the preditor and herbivore places (can't remember the names at the moment) were closed since I didn't want to be a fish or bird. XD But with some looking around I found an omnivore that I really like. :thumbsup:

Oh hon, I laughed out loud. This is fabulous! And indeed, poor Manu.

That being said... I really love the lighting in this. Really nice warm light and dappled shadows make me gleeful. XD
bambi-nymph18 Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010

Valsier Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010
Man I love this.
It really does show the story you wrote. The perspective and the emotions are brilliant.
I love the way the background fits so perfectly, with the lighting of the forest. I just love this, it reminds me role plays. Wonderful work bringing a moment to life. 8D
RHPotter Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Gorgeous, gorgeous work--I wish I had half your talent at rending light and shadow in color ...
sashamya Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010
To be fair, who wouldn't be a bit edgy when someone shows up packing a SET OF GUNS LIKE THAT.

i wonder if it would be easier to trick you into drawing him saying a Worf line, or saying 'Welcome to the gun show'. hmmmmmmmm....

ps - the background is gorgeous. all of the little leafy details ~
hellcorpceo Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
...I feel that either would be equally easy to make me draw. Or I could just draw him drinking prune juice--the warrior's drink!

I'm glad you like the background! I get so lazy drawing them most of the time. LOOK, a guy standing in front of a sky! TADAAAA
sashamya Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010
i think it would be best for the country if you drew all of these things.

Man, your lazy backgrounds are well beyond anything i ever do, even if they are just sky. so i salute you! okay i'm not actually saluting right now, but i'm thinking about it.

Ugh, your lineart is just so smooth!! And the sun dappling, I like that - makes it look so awesome. Definitely on my list of favorite artists :D
Whes Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010  Professional Writer
This is the kind of art I may love to see from you most. C3 Multiple people, action poses, good facial expressions, interaction, fully-drawn backgrounds, and forest scenes! XD It's just yay all around. :heart:

Man, those characters sure are handsome. :)

...forest scenes... X3
