Our animation programs weren't loading in our classes today...so I drew this bad boy on our Cintique computers which are totally bad ass and SO much easier to draw on. I have three classes out of four in this Contique lab for 11 weeks, so definitely be drawing as much as I can on them.
"I don't think you want to fuck with me...I'll kill you.Letting you rot as an empty husk." Nicolai warned, his voice cracking with a slight hint of laughter yet billowing with dangerous intent as it scratched the insides of Viktor's ears. He began to circle around like a hungry vulture. "And when it's infested with the maggots laid by ravenous flies, I'll consume it...devouring everything you have. From the peritoneum inside your cavity to the sinew in your legs...I'll eat it. All of it." -
Craycray ol' Nicolai up to his cute, bubbly antics again. :3 I should point out: This is when Nicolai is early in his stages of this insane infection. his coat is fuller, less matted and he's got a bit more weight on him. Throughout the story and towards the end, he's very scruffy and very thin. His coat is very light, short and clumpy.
The two brothers made their way to the top of the snow covered mountain towards the laboratory which rested at it's peak. "Roy, why are we going back there? We just got out of that wretched place." Benjamin panted. His voice hiding something. Roy was determined to go back to the lab and rescue Argus. "We -have- to go back. Argus needs us. We're his only hope." Roy replied. Benjamin staggered behind, struggling to keep up. Something in him didn't feel right. He couldn't focus and his balance was off.
Sensing something off about his brother, Roy looked over his shoulder, "You okay Ben?" He panted. The Vallhund nodded with heavy exhales, "Y-yeah...I'm good." He lied. The corgi frowned as he reluctantly turned away from his brother and went to continue on.
His eyes lay upon a rugged, almost impassible passage which caused him to stop in his tracks. "Roy..." Benjamin's tired voice quivered behind him. Roy didn't answer. He only stared at the terrain ahead in shock. "Roy...listen to me. There's something I have to tell you." Benjamin whispered as his breath was thin. The cardigan stared ahead, trying to figure out a way they could get through, "There has to be a way to get through. If we could just-" "It's pointless!" Benjamin suddenly shouted as tears rolled down his eyes. Roy froze, shocked at his brother yelling at him. "Roy, I think he's dead..." Benjamin managed to say within the moment of silence he had. Roy felt his heart skip a beat. His legs felt even weaker then before. He could only stare ahead, in shock, as he was trying to figure out what his brother just said.
Just a bit more to my story, hehe. Benjamin finally tells Roy what he saw in the lab. But determined as ever, Roy won't believe it. He will find Argus and rescue him.
I wandered and wandered, following this feeling tugging at my heart. It was crying, "Follow me. I know where it is." 'Know where what is?' I wondered. I followed it, regardless of what would happen. I've lost everyone...my brother...my father...my master...they are all gone. No one was left. I didn't have anything else to lose, so I followed. My numb paws, reluctant to touch the icy snow with each step, carried me onwards. But then, they stopped. I felt the warmth of a candle lit room kiss my bloodstained fur. Then, a scent. A familiar...scent. It was welcoming...inviting...loving. I turned my eyes to the right and laid them upon a sight they longed for so long...Laying on a bed...old...and tired from the war. My master.
Just some more on Roy's story. After the war, losing his brother and father, Roy wanders off...not caring where he was going. Unknowingly, his was bringing himself back to his home. Which he hasn't seen in years. He comes across a hospital, where all the humans that served in the war were being treated. Amongst the chaos and panic in the room, Roy spots a familiar figure, his master.
Roy: "As the sun rose, I found him shivering in the cold mountains, dazed and confused, trying his damnedest to remember who he was and who I was and of the days past. His body was quivering all over before he lurched forwards, heaving up whatever contents he had left in him. The virus was eating him slowly...I didn't know what to do. I found myself, staring at my little brother, unable to move. Was there anything I could do to stop the virus? I am a dog...not a human or scientist. I am nothing but a little dog...A little damn dog in a huge world reeked of pain and suffering."
More of Roy and Benjamin's struggles. Benjamin uses every fiber of his being to fight the virus. His brain is telling him to attack and kill his very own brother, but his heart is telling him otherwise. The problem is...which is stronger? The virus which has hold of his brain...or his heart which has hold of his love and memories?
