HERO: The Serpent by nylvatheel HERO: The Serpent by nylvatheel
meet the Serpent, from ~elledupomme's HERO which I've told you many times you have to read.
and those of you who have read HERO would recognize the Serpent much more easily if I didn't fail so grandly at so many things.

brain hurts, need to sleep _now_

i'd love to draw more HERO fanarts, but actually each time i draw these characters i see how far away i am from the original comic, and i lost the motivation to finish it ^^;
but i'll try again!~

D: I'm the same.. I really want to draw a lot of HERO fanarts, but I really hate drawing bad fanart, so more often than not I end up giving up... still, practice makes perfect! both of us have to work harder, don't you think?
(and then we'll rule the world, :mwahaha: )

Serpent is indeed beautiful.

nah :p it's one of the prettiest only cuz there are very few! (I wish you had some to show, I bet yours will be beautiful like there's no tomorrow :heart: )

I wonder if we made a HERO popularity contest, who would win.. some time ago I'd bet on Valentine, but now it seems the Serpent has the bigger fanbase *adds to list of fanclub activity*

That's really wonderful. Just.. impressive.
I like his long-long and pale fingers. That's just :heart:
And a little bit scary, you can feel danger and smell the blood.

beautiful people, just like beautiful things, are often dangerous, and I believe he is no exception (:
thank you for the nice comment! please remind me, have I tried persuading you to read HERO? and did I succeed? xD

Np. ^^

You haven't persuade me, but I've started to read it already. It's not that I understand the story (I feel like I don't understand everything at all), but like it. :heart:

Would you mind to explain me the story?

nylvatheel Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2008
<3 yey~ so you like it? why not come join us at the fanclub? :D

mm the story... well, it's a bit complicated since at this point many things are still a mystery and open to interpretation and speculation n__n; and I don't think I understand everything either.
but my guess so far is that during the war Valentine tried to protect Eira from something using demon magic, which conflicted with the golem magic and resulted in the destruction of Eira... so now Valentine is trying to fix things (but Eira's 'family' won't let him). or... something like this. or it might be nothing like this at all orz
this is the reason why I'm always excited about updates, since each page is a bit closer to the solving of the mystery. I guess we can't be 100% sure about anything before the last page is finished. until then everything is pretty much a guess (:
^^; I'm sorry, I know this wasn't very useful... if you wish, we can have a chat or something and exchange speculations? xD

Wow, that's an invitation? *^^* Yay! I'll be really glad! :heart:
Offcourse I'll draw some fan-art, the style of drawing in HERO is really close to my heart. Think I'm really in love now.

Yeah, that's a big mystery. It's really unusual that everything in HERO isn't explained like in ordinary manga or something like this.
Thank's for explanations, now I understand a bit more. ^^;

I think it's one of HERO's charms that things aren't explained (: When characters stop and start explaining things to each other for whole chapters it's really tedious... it's all going to make sense in the end, so why destroy the story with explanations?

I'd really love to see you fanarting HERO <3 hope you will have enough free time to draw :smooch:

your colours! I believe I go on and on about them every time I see a picture of yours

they're so soft and deep. Diggin the sort of desert scape background

nylvatheel Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2008
<3 thank you! I had planned a desert/wasteland type of background, but ended up halfassing as usual ;___; it's relieving to know it's not entirely lost!
and oh.. you're giving me too much credit xD I'm happy you like the colours, but still they are sort of accidental.. I didn't have the slightest idea about what and why I'm doing. it's a miracle I didn't create a rainbow disaster ^^;

Oh no, the nice thing about the Serpent is that his crazy design makes him very very recognizable right away. You did a fantastic job, especially with his fangs and tense, pensive expression.

:iconnylvatheel:
nylvatheel Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2008
thank you (: you're right actually... but him being very recognizable makes it only that much easier to mess up. I mean, we've all seen these really messed up Naruto fanarts where you know what you are looking at, but it's just so so wrong.
my only hope is I never go there, especially not with HERO fanart ^___^

Haha, no joke! About the Naruto fanart pieces, I mean. Those hurt my soul.

I don't think you would ever do that, though - your style works very well with the original artist's characters. :)

:wow: this one is great! I love the color scheme (so you hid the character's face, heim...) Really nice, I love the weapon :heart:

thank you!
but well, no, actually I didn't 'hide' his face; the Serpent with his mask on is canon (: I just thought it would be inappropriate to draw him without it~

So~~~ pretty:heart: A :heart: (Though perhaps pretty isn't quite the right adjective for him but nonetheless)
The soft colours really work well for him I think:)
Big sword/ shading/ hair is fantabulous<333

I second him being pretty, although "drop dead gorgeous" also seems to fit :aww:
thankies! <3
