Looks stunning! The shadows and the lighting for this gloomy photo are astounding. Those lips and the naked shoulders are a great combi...

MY ENTRY FOR THE GLASS HVV CONTEST





Let's start with the fact that I'm a HUGE fan of the M.Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable Universe (No joke) I had no idea about Split when it was coming out but boy that trailer hooked me! I watched the movie and became a HUGE fan when it turned out it was the sequel to the old Unbreakable movie in 2000. So as soon as I finished Split I came back home and watched Unbreakable. Oh boy, I couldn't wait for the third entry in the saga. And when it was first announced it was the first movie that I was hyped in 2019. When I watched the movie I reeeally, really LOVED IT! Especially ending although it was a very unpopular decision but I loved it.

In such a saturated superhero market the Glass was a breath a fresh air in the comicbook movie industry. I love the M.Night's unconventional superhero genre and his style of it. Hands down my favorite movie of 2019 so far along with "Us".

When approaching the creation of my original characters in the Unbreakable universe I knew that going into this required the maintaining of the artistic style present in the movies / promo posters. As you can see all 3 of my characters sport the colors and themes that mirror the movie Glass. I wanted them to be equivalent to the main trio in the movies and be the exact opposites of each of them in some sort of way.




THE RUNAWAY

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Runaway by FotusKnight

An inspiration for this particular character was first and foremost a character piece instead of a walking pack of superpowers. I didn't focus on her costume, look or style this time but rather her emotions and her strong will despite  into what she has become.

Her superpowers are very simple and not too bombastic. She can't punch a baddie or show everyone how cool she is because she simply doesn't need to. Her powers make her uncatchable and let her get away with stealing food and to survive.

This is a classic orphan child-runaway trope that is as old as time (think of Wolverine, Spider-Man, Shazam). But for my character I wanted to show her growth in her darkest times that led her to where she is now. The point of this artwork is to show that there is always a bright light even in the darkest realities of this world. And I hope I accomplished that with this art-piece and synopsis.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________




The main trio in the movies have Green, Purple and Yellow colors which led me to picking 
Red, Blue and Orange as the color choices for my characters. Blue representing the mood and the world of the Runaway, Orange representing the ancient and dreamlike feeling of the detective's powers, and of course last but not least - Red representing the vast power and control of the main villain.




THE OBSERVER

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Observer by FotusKnight

Observer was the first idea of my entry that I had. I wanted to make a dark mysterious character shadowed in mystery. Not every character has to be explained and this is a prime example of that. I wanted him to be very simple, with no backstory, no biography and almost no description at all.

The artwork and his name speaks for himself.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________




NOTE
Orange ghosts and red particle effects is a stylistic choice (Like spider-sense effect). They wouldn't actually look like that in the real life (or a movie in this case) and aren't visible to any other person. I look at it as a viewer's glimpse into the character's mind and soul. At least that's how I think they would view it themselves any way.




THE EXCERPT

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Excerpt by FotusKnight

The third and the last hero I had in my mind was the supernatural detective with the most unique ability...

As you can see his ability is very reminiscent of David Dunn's Touch which lets David examine the events and deeds of a particular person after touching him or her. Sam's ability on the other hand lets him examine the events and deeds of people at the place of a crime. Sam called it a "Snippet of the Past".

When coming up with this ability I was inspired by and hologram recordings in many videogames (Halo / Mass Effect / Doom). Although there were a lot of characters who could see glimpses of the future in the history of fiction (Jedi for example) there was never a single superhero who could see snippets of the past. There was never a superhero with this kind of ability ever both in Marvel and DC universes (:o) Kudos to me! (lol)

I would imagine Sam teaming up with David on few occasions in the years between Unbreakable and Split. Sam would be very useful for finding out what happened at the scene of a crime, while David would find those people and eventually take them down. These two would solve crimes like no other and would be true heroes in the mythos of this universe. He is like Shazam to Superman / Robin to Batman / Spider-Man to Iron Man.

All three of my illustrations depict the happening that occurs at the same time as the events of the film Glass.

The Excerpt
Status: Hero
Gender: Male
Age: 29
Family: Alive
Residence: Philadelphia
Superpower: Experiencing the past events

Sam discovered his unique abilities very early in his life. At the age of 5 he started seeing ghosts in his room. Sam's parents believed him, but nobody else did. Later Sam began seeing them at kindergarten and on regular streets too. He realized it was his ability to experience the events that happened in any location that Sam was in. But it only happens at night. Reason behind this remains a mystery.

With time Sam learned to control his ability and improve it. Now he can examine the events from the past in vivid details. As long as it's happening in the place that he's in.

When he was 10 Samuel decided he will pursue the path of a detective. These abilities of his made him an expert detective. He solved more crimes and murder mysteries than any other detective in history.

But one day he stumbles upon something he can't fight alone...

Gender: Female
Age: 19
Family: Deceased
Residence: None
Superpower: Enhanced Speed and Stamina

Miranda grew up being orphan on the streets of Brooklyn. Miranda's parents died in a train crash. She had to grow up in the orphanage until she gets adopted. Unfortunately, not all adoptive parents are as nice as they seem. She escaped her new abusive family when she was 7 years old. Her adoptive parents and nobody else could catch her. She could run for hours upon hours without stopping. Nobody could outrun her. Miri realized it was a gift.

Since she ran out of her house she never trusted anyone. Her past reminds her to keep going. So she just keeps running. Miranda eventually chose the path of exploiting her powers for her own benefit which inevitably turned her career being a thief. The life of a runaway doesn't provide a luxury of having a home so she wanders around the world for years in hopes to find that glimpse of light.

Years after the incident she was kidnapped by the unknown bald man along with some other girls. Somehow she was able to escape the encounter without a scratch. Was it thanks to her powers or because of the kidnapper's sudden change of heart? We'll never know.

Lately some events shed more light on the details of her past with a help of certain someone. And the Runaway finally has a purpose in her life...
