Tobias and Elfangor Utzum by racehell Tobias and Elfangor Utzum by racehell
Oh man where do I start....

:iconpraxcrown5: made this lineart for me when I won her contest! Original lineart here: [link]

I just love the tentative relationship between Tobias and Elfangor. They only meet once, but somehow still understand each other. UGHSIGH Its so beautiful. In "The Illusion" (#33) Tobias is tortured to near death and has a vision of Elfangor. Aximili later calls this an Utzum, a mythical interaction of passed souls enlightening the new generation. Since this doesn't really happen in our universe persay and Tobias just mentions a large field I made the sky a nebula. Its based off the Orion nebula. I changed NASA's color and used a lot of the clone stamp tool in PS.

I said I was going to do a tutorial on how I made this... but it kind of got out of hand. lol. I'll probably do a breakdown of the different layers in PS.

you know that Elfangor is indirectly Tobias' father right?

and that Tobias is related to Ax.

Also, how have I not seen this one yet!? It's amazing. I don't even remember that torture scene, I guess this requires a re-read :)

looks so badass dude, though i thought he used the flat of his blade, not the edge.lol ehh, details. still pretty sick

You're right, Its supposed to be the flat of his blade. When I put the light flare in it canceled out the shadow on the bottom of his blade. I put it back in but it looked silly to have a shadow where all this light was coming from. >.< ah, you win some, you lose some.

I probably should've mentioned that.. lol. Definitely not my favorite book, though it did make me squirm the most. I'd have a hard time picking one. I also really like when he finds out Elfangor is his father and Visser 3 tries to pass as his long lost aunt or whatever. Oh gawd they're all good.

OMG awesome! Not even a half an hour ago I was just thinking, man I wish there was some good Elfangor and Tobias fanart and BOOM! This falls into my inbox! Thank you! It's beautiful! I too love the father/son relationship they have even though they've only met once. I

I must have read your mind, this has been sitting on my computer forever just waiting for me to upload it. I also love how fated the Aximili/Tobias and Elfangor/Loren relationships seem... I just like aliens loving each other I guess. :/

INCREDIBLE!!!!!! I LUV Tobias' past. I lable Tomias as the main protagonist in the series. Even though Jake is the leader Tobias does SO much more, and he suffers so much more than any of them. :D

Yeah, Tobias was always my fave when I was a kid. I wanted to heal his heart wounds with my love. But Rachel and him are such a great pair... I just can't interfere ;) lol.

lol i know what you mean. Marco is always for the taking though. XD maybe Ax to if you're in to that sort of thing. cause you know Jake is off limits. :D

I always thought Ax was a great "Spock" character to their mix. In a very sexy kind of way. Oh Ax, I'll be monitoring your frequencies.

:iconmullent169:
mullent169 Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011
Yeah i imagine Ax as being extremely sexy the way they always describe his human morph. Also i kind of imagine a pairing between Marco and Ax. My perverted fanfiction mind works up SO many different scenarios involving those two. :D

:iconracehell:
racehell Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011
I noticed a lot of people feel that way. I think Marco is too sassy to ship them. Ax would eventually have to put him in his place. Or just taunt him by saying 'your human minutes' for the rest of their lives. That could work. ;)

I'm glad you like it! It just sat on my comp for a while because I couldn't decide if it was done or not. What's that saying? If you love something let it go? ;)

I know what you mean. That's my biggest problem...forcing myself to walk away from a good piece without agonizing over it as I'm wont to do.

I totally meant what I said. The piece is amazing. I love the nebula; that really makes it.

racehell Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2011
Yeah I never really feel like I'm done. It's more like, I can always go back to it if I absolutely need to. I guess that's better than not giving a hoot. :)

I'm really really glad! It was so much fun to collaborate! I've never really done it before, at least drawing-wise. I hope I win all your future contests. ;)
