Tubed by InvdrDana Tubed by InvdrDana
Roz: Let Sor-Mel go!
Atlas: You want her? Then you and I must duel!

Although I rarely draw pictures based off rps, especially the ones I *ahem* play act, there was no way I wasn't going to draw something from this one. I actually didn't intend to draw Sor-Mel and the Smeet, or the background in the first place, but my pencil wouldn't let me stop. ;)

Long story time!

This scene takes place around the middle of the story in which Atlas has taken Sor-Mel to be one of his test subjects. The story actually begins during a war between Irkens and Vortians, Irk being the main battlefield. While Roz and his buddy Rotor were patrolling the area around the base, they happed upon a pregnant Vortian struggling under some debris. Even though they were at war with the Vortians, Roz wasn't the kind of heartless Irken that would just leave anyone in Sor-Mel's condition to die. Plus, he's also been somewhat different from other Irkens, and Rotor has always known this, so it didn't take long for him to agree to help Sor-Mel. Sor-Mel didn't take kindly to being helped by Irkens, and wasn't too thrilled with the idea of her furture child growing up in a society where Irkens enslave Vortians.

After plenty of bickering, Sor-Mel reluctantly allowed the two Irkens to take her to the infirmary where she could recover. The wounded Irkens weren't happy about a Vortian among them, but the doctor (who'd rather have a peaceful end to the war) wasn't one to turn away anyone in need. Through talking to Sor-Mel, Roz learned that her mate left her after finding out she was pregnant even though they had plans for marriage. Sor-Mel was more or less thrown into war because there was a shortage of Vortian soldiers. Though she had been trained in combat, she was mostly a researcher on Vort's science team. She also had resentment for the Vortians that had left her for dead in the lastest battle. Roz ended up falling in love with her and would go out of his way to see her, asking Rotor to cover for him. Sor-Mel too began to have feelings for Roz, even if she didn't want to believe or admit it. And Rotor continued to try and talk his friend out of doing what he was doing, but it was to no avail.

Eventually, Roz decided that the only way they could be together was if they left Irk and found somewhere else to live. Roz was able to convince Rotor to come with them by asking him if he ever wanted to be something more than an Irken soldier. The doctor found out about the plan and prepared a kit of medical supplies for when Sor-Mel would give birth. He also taught Roz how to handle the ordeal. So they wouldn't get caught, Roz came up with the plan to fake his and Rotor's deaths by remote-controlling Rotor's cruiser to crash into a building. After this was done, the trio left in a different cruiser when the battling quieted down. The next phase was to go to Food Courtia for enough food to last them for a long time. When they arrived, Rotor stayed with the cruiser while the others went to get food. When Roz wasn't paying attention, Atlas (who was keeping watch on Sor-Mel) kidnapped Sor-Mel and took her to his lair where the above scene takes place. He had left Irk long ago so he could perform strange tests in peace. He kidnapped the Smeet long ago and needed a Vortian so he could do the classic villian thing of switching bodies and stuff. He, like most villians, isn't very bright (his machine is broken, haha!), but has his moments of victory.

So Roz trailed Atlas and the rest can be seen in the pic. He gets trapped as well after a fight; Rotor comes to help with others who dislike Atlas; Sor-Mel is rescued; the Smeet is for comedic effect (like the blob in "Abducted"); they leave Food Courtia and head for Devastis; other stuff happens that involves adventure-like stuff that I haven't thought up yet; etc.

End long story time! :lol:

P.S: The inspiration for this was my Titanic soundtrack that I listened to in my car one day. Some of it also came from Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms, which I read a few years back. My story reminded me of that book in some ways. My story's not as depressing though. XP

Self-Critique

I absolutely LOVE this picture and worked hard on the coloring and some of the shading. I don't see many problems with it except for Atlas' head being kinda' big and the Smeet kinda' poorly drawn...it was a last minute idea to put him in. Anyway, I'm really happy with this!

Most of the rps I do are actually in real life, either with my sister or myself. My brother and I do them too, but it mostly involves AU characters based off people we know in real life and characters, haha. You should read his Insantity Variety Hour story...it'll give you a look into our world. XD

Usually, my form of rp is talking to myself. I will never grow up! :XD:

The doctor should have a name. His name is Krake or Krillio/Krill. Something that starts with a K.

You know, I think he may have had a name, but I can't remember. K is an interesting starting letter. Not sure about those names though. Krake sounds like a crazy asylum dude or evil genius; Krillio sounds like a hippie or one of Biz's friends; and Krill would be perfect for a girl who has a strange eye-twitching problem. Ha, you should draw them! XD

The doctor's name isn't important anyway...not unless he would've gone with them...that'd be an AU though. He did work with Vortian doctors on Devastis so he'd have connections. :)

Do you have something against doctors? Story time: Krake escaped from the asylum with Krillio who was put there for of his hippie crazyness. Krillio is trying to get Krake to find his inner flower child so he's just as crazy as Krake. Krill was put in the asylum too since they thought she was crazy because of the eye thing and tags along with them and is the only sane one among them. Should I continue?

So purdy! I love how the smeet is like please get me out too and how Sor-Mel seems more annoyed than angry. The floor is really neat. This so full of detail. What I'm wondering is why Atlas has pink walls and what that says about him.

Thanks. ^^

Wouldn't you be annoyed to be stuck in a tube with some weird evil guy blabbing on? Atlas is a talker...the kind of villian that explains the whole plan. XD

You probably like the floor highlights. I kinda' like to think that there's more light in the back. I still have to work on shading like that.

I actually considered the wall thing. I was torn between two similar colors and I ended up going with magenta because it was a better contrast. Plus, it has a more IZ feel. There's lots of purples and dark pinks in Zim's world.

Atlas' favorite color is blue anyway. XD

Great job, it's rare we see a fully colored scene like this. I must say out of anything, I appreciate the fact that you color everything and draw full backgrounds.

Thank you! ^^

My favorite part usually is coloring. I've been drawing more backgrounds lately, especially since I have a smaller space to work with. I haven't touched my big sketchbooks in a while. :lol:

Thank you again! ^^

I carefully chose the color for this one. I'm in love with the colors myself. ^^

His expression was really creepy when I first colored it. But now it's more of a mix of evil and stupid, haha! Which is what I wanted anyway. I mean c'mon, what Irken, let alone anyone besides Yugioh say "duel"? :lol:

Yeah, but I don't think it'll bring any harm. It's more for dramatic effect.

I mixed a bunch of colors too. 50 colors isn't enough. I need more. MORE!!! @_@

Thanks. Roz's gun is a bit dramatic too, but only if you look at it from far away since it hardly looks like one. I also like to think that Atlas will just pull out a sword. He has issues. XD

I thought about that a while back. I sort of acted it out in the basement when I was skating. While Atlas does have a saber of some sort, his main attack is having robot arms come out of nowhere and grabbing the victim. A cool scene would be of Roz trying to attack Atlas by jumping up and grabbing a hold of a tube and landing on him. *imagines trying to attempt drawing that* XD
