The hero by FelisGlacialis The hero by FelisGlacialis
The siderian (a big northern feline) guy Goran in full speed to save his mate and friend from a hostile confrontation with humans.
Finally he gets his lazy ass moving....

----------------

Some background about Goran:
He is usually known as that nonchalant oversexed macho-dude and the not-so-well mannered, sometimes little-too-provocative brother of Stian (the white one, you find everywhere in my gallery). Many siderians who fight in Stian’s Fjordland Force (a big organized group of many siderians, who fight against invading humans), see Goran as rather annoying with his flirts and his lack of personal space. But when things get really serious, they realize that then can’t without him. Goran may appear lazy, careless and always with his mind on anything sex-related, but he has quite a soft heart. He was the first one in the Fjordland Force, who would go back and pick up the wounded siderians during- and after missions. Stian would have left them to die, but Goran risked his life to get them back. Finally, he could use his muscle power for something useful… Thereby, Goran was the initiative-taker of the Fjordland Force’s equivalent of Red Cross. He continued to save fallen siderians until he was too old to carry them anymore.

Goran Sketchdump by FelisGlacialis

Story behind this drawing
The siderians of the Fjordland Force had gathered and were preparing for a scouting mission in a new area to investigate potential conflict areas between humans and siderians. They were unfamiliar with the terrain yet. However, or course they had to hunt for food and that is exactly what the two sideresses Rubi and Mineuh were doing. I see the whole scene on the following music

www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCO8l2…  (cliché I know, but it works)
They were chasing a herd of reindeer, when humans
suddenly appeared on snow-scooters, apparently hunting the same herd. Overwhelmed by the sudden confrontation, the humans began to shoot at the siderians. Goran was nearby and realized how this went out of hand. He ran as fast as he could to the place of commotion to keep his mate Rubi and her friend Mineuh out of danger (that’s this drawing, and the music at (0.32). At full speed, he tried to catch up with the snowscooters and knock them over (0.56-1.11). He managed to distract the humans enough so that Rubi and Mineuh could escape to safety. However, in the chaos, Goran had become the target and they were after him. He ran towards a steep, tree-covered slope that was far too steep for snowscooters to follow. In the jump, he got shot through his upperarm and tumbled down. When the humans left and the situation calmed down, Rubi and Mineuh found him unconscious, half hanging in a tree. Fortunately, he was quickly back to his senses and was able to limp to the healers of the Fjordland Force himself. No vital organs were hit and after a little recovery period (he may have had a mild concussion too), he was back to his old funny, flirty self (and yes, he may have flirted with the healers too…who knew very well, where to go to ‘silence’ him…mahaha)

Ahh Goran running, that's an unique sight! Poor Rubi has to sit through his flirtations with the healers, after he saved her life and that of her friend.. and now I deeply hope that Yava is not one of that team of healers xDD (she'll give him the Sætansen death glare if he talks to her like that)

Yeah quite rare indeed. Maybe only during missions, when he goes out to rescue one can see him in action (and of course when hunting, but even there he just sits and waits in ambush). Hmm good question, Yava may have been around but maybe directed the work to someone else. I don't think he would flirt with his cousin hehe.
Though, I don't know to what extend Yava wants to treat close family members? Fortunatily, the situation with Goran wasn't so critical as soon as inner bleedings were excluded.

Very cool, with a lifelike sense of movement, and good work on the texture and giving the coat a nice texture and sheen. The snow spraying around is very nicely done. The facial expression is also really well done.

Ah so happy to see you finally posted this one! I sure am glad it wasn't completely lost when your computer went ka-poot. I still really love recalling the emotional impact of this scene personally... it goes from dramatic and really scary for their lives, especially Goran when he is hit and falling... and then classical Goran, ends in humor and flirtations lol... I can still feel him knock the breath out of Mineuh giving her a pat on the back to help her calm down and stop fussing over him hahaha... But yeah, something in this image just evokes the sounds too... I can hear the snow churning beneath his feet as he pelts forward with all he's got... and almost feel the wind whistling through his fur. So you really pulled it off here. Really awesome to officially see Goran in action. 

I hear him now "in action uuuuhh... tired now. zzzzzzZZZZZZZZZ....." lol...

Hehe, it was quite thanks to your motivating talking that I finished this drawing 8D Thanks again! It was quite a challenge to draw over a one-layer WIP...
But yeah I think this was one of the most 'scary moments' in Goran's life. He had seen a lot and risked a lot to get the fallen and wounded ones in safety, but he was always careful not to risk his own life. Here, he went very far to the point that he was lucky not to be dead.
But yeah the nurse-flirt afterwards might really annoy Rubi....and indeed, this action may have changed Mineuhs feelings about him, but maybe not her opinions as he nicely goes on flirting with her. She may as well hit him in the face again Wink/Razz
Haha lol, after this action...damn yeah he's gonna be sleeping for daaayyys in a row.
