Oooookay, I don't know what's up with my angsty feelings right now. I just... keep having these feelings for Mako and how he's had it so hard. Can you imagine being a firebender and knowing his parents were taken by one? Sigh, sometimes I wonder why people have to be so negative about him
Anyway, I FINALLY decided it was time I contribute to the Korra fandom! There's so many mistakes on this thing that I just gave up(Gah, it's a crappy feeling)
So for this assignment I was to illustrate a non-disney fairly tale or a fairy tale that was not the disney version. I've always loved how Cincerella's story can be found in almost every culture from Egypt to France to China. I chose to roughly base mine around a Russian rendition of the story known as Chernushka [click to read]
In this version the step sisters cut of their toe to fit in the boot/shoe. I chose to do the French Slipper and go the Disney way and make it Glass, so I really did an amalgamation of about 4 Cinderella stories. At some point I'd heard a version of it where they cut off both their heal and their toe, so I did that for the sake of being more Graphic
I had fun with it. I still think I need more practice at Charcoals but I did enjoy it for sure.
Another concept for my fanfic, Birds of a Feather. Here is the Pure Ones force from Guardians of Ga'Hoole, albeit this one was their modernized version. Instead of using their old battle claws, they are now equipped with mostly Israeli firearms (well, that's my imagination of this force's modernized version :v). They're going to be one of the opposing forces in my fanfic. Their appearance was slightly inspired by ArmA 3's CSAT forces. Here's the list of their classes and weapons.
#1: Rifleman Equipments: - Improved standard-issue Pure Ones helmet, now using titanium and/or kevlar material, for withstanding bullet hit but with lighter weight. Equipped with integrated communications equipment, eye visor, and NVG mount. - Russian 6B43 body armor (Standard-issue Pure Ones body armor). Weapons: - IMI/IWI & Indumil Galil ACE 22 (w/ ITL MARS sight) - 5.56x45mm NATO (standard-issue Pure Ones rifle, formerly using the standard Galil.) - IMI Jericho 941 - 9x19mm (standard-issue Pure Ones sidearm.)
#6: Engineer Equipments: - Standard-issue Pure Ones helmet, w/ additional respiration system - Improved 6B43 vest - Engineer equipment backpack Weapons: - IMI Tavor Assault Rifle [TAR-21] (w/ Elcan SpecterDR scope & M203 40mm grenade launcher) - 5.56x45mm NATO (They also use the Galil ACE 22 w/ grenade launcher as well.) - Standard Jericho 941 - 9x19mm Gadgets: - RPG-32 "Hashim" - C4 Explosive
#7: Combat Life Saver Equipments: - Lightweight Pure Ones helmet. - 6B43 vest - Medical backpack Weapons: - IWI/Indumil Galil ACE 22 (w/ ITL MARS sight) - 5.56x45mm NATO - Standard Jericho 941 - 9x19mm
i'm a bit reluctant to submit "remix" images of existing works, but here goes anyway.
this is rendered with my 4-day-old new renderer; it's a spectral (wavelength-based) renderer that can cleanly handle lots of interesting physics, in this case the light source is a black body emitter (wiki: [link]) at about 9500K. i look forward to doing much more with this renderer and letting others use it in the future (read: after my #$&*@% exams).
