Insect Scout by OrmIrian Insect Scout by OrmIrian
Being a patrol is not easy, but someone has to do the job. Silently Tiara, the insect scout, listened to the report of the little flying insect. The spiders have come nearer again; war seems to come closer every day…


Tiara (the insect scout) is based on my pets here: [link]

I can't work out why I like this so much, but I do. It's exactly right for an Extat, they are lightly armoured scouts.

A very interesting drawing :).

At the first view I thought about a Nantuko. :D

There's a very interesting book series called "Spider Riders". In it, a young boy falls into an incredible land where young warriors ride on ten-foot-tall spiders and face of against insect armies. The insects, called the Insectors, desire to claims the humans' lands for their own. I think that this piece is similar to that, but giving a much nicer spin to the Insectors. You have a very beautiful way of drawing insects and insect weapons. If a movie was ever made out of the books, I would definitely want you doing the concept art.

That sound like a really interesting book series! I would love to read it- maybe I get the chance to do so one day :D
Thank you- I'm happy you think I'm would be good enough for drawing concept art for a movie :)

You are very talented. I would like to point out that there are giant spiders in the book, and it might be able to help if you have arachnaphobia. I know it helped me. There's also a version of it playing at 2:30 mountain time on Teletoon (I don't know if you get Canadian programming, sorry).

I don't suffer from arachnophobia, actually I love spiders as I like other insects as well. Still, thanks for the tip, I will keep it in mind in case I meet someone with arachnophobia. :)
Hehe, no, I probably won't get the canadian programming, but still thanks for the point out! :D

I LOVE the lighting for this one! And the trees, and grass, and glowing fungus--it's a really gorgeous picture! This is a cool concept and design, and this picture really seems to hint at a deeper story here.

Ahh, it's just so enchanting and beautiful...:aww:

Yep, I'm think of develop this story even more... I'm planing to draw a battlescence between the spiders and the insects- and maybe also some more places of this world :)

I'm really glad you like it! :)

I'd love to see this story develop, it really sounds like there's more to be told. (And having the characters as insects and spiders really makes it different and unique.) *I like the insect design*

The flora and fauna of this world looks like it would be a strange and wonderful place. Full of beauty AND danger. :eager:

Not only that beautiful atmosphere, attention to detail and lovely combination of colours; we also get a little snippet of an idea in your comment =D. A rather ideal combination.

(Did you say something about drawing the spiders too? That would be cool to see :))

Thank you so much! :D Heh, I'm trying to create more characters with some kind of story- Characters with a story normally also have more depth :) I also plan to draw more complex backgrounds: I plan draw a Half-Life 2 fanart somewhere in the future (because then I already have a good reference for the background and the characters :D )

Yeah, I really would like to draw the spiders too- maybe some kind of battlescene between both of them :la: I need to finish my commissions first though :P

Look at that, you made the butterfly land on the scout's hand! And the best of all, you created a story behind the moment, which is awesome! :la:
I liked the transition from green to blue, Tiara's head, the glowing mushrooms...and your painting style did really fit perfectly with the fantasy look!

Congratulations once again :hug:

Yeah! :D I also like it much more this way.. before that it looked so weird for some reason :) Hehe, I'm glad you like my small story here.. guess what: this little text actually inspire me to draw even more of this world: Like how their enemies, the spiders, might look. I might even draw a battlescene between the two, I think that would come out great :la:

Thanks again! :hug:

I just couldn't believe it when I turned on DA!! :la:
I'm on DA for 5 years, and I got 2 DDs in less than 4 months!! I think my "hybrid" (traditional + digital) skills are the guilty for that lol! And I really should improve them more and more :la:

But please, keep me in touch. I would LOVE to make a work with you. Seriously =)

Thank you very very much :hug:

The lighting on the scout is great : ) Just enough. Also, I'm a big fan of gradient transitions. This green to dark blue is lovely.

Beautiful work! You based it on your little pets, how great! Someday I'll finish that one... the only thing is, in the dark parts where the legs are, I can tell the outlines have just been turned white but that they are still drawn there... the lighting looks more surreal than real. Or fairylike. Very cool "helmet" design too though, and I love the claws.

Hehe, yeah- I didn't want to do a just a study (I might do that still later on though)

Yeah, I have to agree with the outlines- I didn't use the original outlines though :P Ah well, I just added it, because I thought it looks better.

Well it might be part of the theme. Still, they look a bit scribbly. Perhaps this goes for all your outlines: Try working on the lineweights and making them a bit smoother.

:iconormirian:
OrmIrian Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I tried to improve it a little bit: Basically, I just made it a little bit darker, so the lines don't stand out that much anymore. I hope it looks more smooth now :P Thanks for the tipps! :hug:

Yeah, I love weapon designs, this one in particular reminds me of some spears in Demon's Souls, a Japanese RPG, it has knights & castles etc, now If there was a spear like this I would definitely want to get my hands on it. :D

Your good at doing backgrounds, I am often pleasantly surprised by what you come up with. ^^
