Fate Loves the Fearless by Following-The-Rabbit Fate Loves the Fearless by Following-The-Rabbit
EDIT: Since I never finished the Reference Sheet (sta.sh/02wkma3uor4) for this guy, I am just going to use this as his unofficial bio and ref picture.
Yaaaaaaay.


Initially, I was going to go with one of my witch charaters, and make them the goddess of whatever magic they control. That was all well and good in my mind, but I couldn't think of any poses, or backgrounds for that matter. From there, I wanted to draw one of my characters for my dumb little story Binary, but who? I toyed with many ideas, like making Charlotte the Goddess of memories, Ellie the Goddess of Weapons, Gear the Machinist God, Moderator the God/goddess of travel, etc.
In the end, I went with the Admin, who I guess is kind of like a god to begin with. This seemed simple enough. He's a writer of fate, so, "herp derp, let's draw him as the god of fate!"

So, what is fate?
Noun
The development of events outside a person's control, regarded as determined by a supernatural power.
Verb
Be destined to happen, turn out, or act in a particular way: "it was fated to end badly".

If you believe in fate, it's essentially the driving force behind the entire universe. So, I wanted to draw the admin as an omnipotent being, toying with the universe i.e. being in control of it. Looks like he's having the most fun with Earth, though. There is more to play with there, after all.


"Fate will find a way" is a quote from Virgil. I threw it in there because A, it fit. Durr. B, a big white space didn't go well there below a giant expanse of stars and planets. Speaking of the planets, they took forever. Like, and hour or so to finish them all. Ugggh. They were fun, though. I can't believe I used to hate backgrounds. I have the most fun doing them in all of my pictures lately. I just really enjoy adding all the little details. I guess it just helps that I do the background before anything else.

As well as the planets you see, I also included Pluto; It's a little purple dot behind Neptune. The zodiac constellations are hidden, too. why not try to find them?

Meh, my foot is sore from sitting on it. I'm off to bed, bros. But, hey, why not drop by :#oc-challenge:, and enter that contest, eh? Only a few days left!

this is so pretty! :)

I love how the bottom is just a drop of liquid. It balances out a really detailed part above, and the words at the bottom just ties everything together.

Weeee looking forward to seeing your other stuff :D

a very well done composition that makes great use of deviantart zoom sizes so that when you view it you can see all the details vividly and with ease (longer images have always been better than wider images here on da by how you zoom). the smoke works well with the sky and comes off as it could almost be the milky way, it's a great effect you added in, and I love the dripping effect at the bottom leading to a white canvas. oh man, I didn't notice you included the zodiacs too, that's a nice touch. this was a good idea for the contest, and I enjoy the lighting you added over him
