About: King Darmuul Daelot III was in all senses a man. He was flawed, human, and very emotional. He loved his family and did his duty to instill peace and civility in his kingdom. Those who carried the name Darmuul before him were some of the most respectable and renown names in Thuulian history, however Darmuul III did little to immortalize himself in history. In the years he ruled, he was respected for his humanity. However, treachery among the Noblemen shattered the Kings precious life and family. His wife mysteriously taken ill and passed away in her sleep, his first born son was burned alive, and all he had left was his second son, Aaron, but he too could not escape his fate. On one day, Aaron was accused of witchcraft and he was burnt at the stake. Darmuul, overwhelmed with grief, tried in vain to save him; embracing the flames, he untied his son and carried him... Aaron died and Darmuul was alone. At that moment his heart finally broke, and he too died... with his son at his hands he was ready to reunite with his family at the other side... but Darmuul awoke... alone in a forest... his family gone and his body scarred. Darmuul lost his mind and wandered aimlessly in the forests, over the years he has slowly been recovering and now realizes the beautiful kingdom he once ruled is now at the mercy of a demon. Darmuul turns to his deities for guidance, perhaps he was never meant to die, perhaps he now has the chance to earn his name and save his kingdom.

Pfft, I'll buy it! Its all just.....BRILLIANT....just BRILLIANT MAN!
To me, the most convincing aspect of Darmuul III's anguish is through your details on his hands.

Thanks. :) Since Darmuul is wearing a mask I had to pour most of his emotion in his eyes and hands.

Thanks. And with a story like that, would you believe he isn't even the main character in the story? :D

I love drawing hands! They are very expressive and can show so much about a character.

I've been writing, not much, but before I actually never wrote anything down on my story. Since it is a long story, it won't be done for a damn long time!

Practice practice PRACTICE! When I was in high school, I would draw on my school work all the time, hands were something I drew almost all the time just so I could really nail them down. I've done quite a lot of practice with feet as well, which some people have an even harder time drawing! :D

Very true. So you have a story too? What is it about, if you don't mind me asking?

Practice makes perfect! And I always find it humorous to draw on my schoolwork. :) Really, you like feet more so than hands? :D Hell, most people try to avoid drawing feet altogether, in fact, some comic artists do just that! As for practice, I practice just about everything; I still draw hands, feet, faces, and try some perspective, dynamic poses, etc. I always feel like I can practice more. So I do.

yeah ^^; its a slow process, but its in the future, and the british goverment has created a massive underground city in a expanded (aquifer), all the parents and anyone over 18 goes to a war that no one in my plot knows why it happens they just know that they live in a city of teens with few adults to rule them. with Will and Lana , they each are dragged into events that happen in this new 'ideal' society , living deep underground living in unexplored areas has effects on some humans such as will who has a issue with the pressure on his ears, later he's experimented on with various drugs expected to die (but escapes) and he now has these misleading visions and memory loss. so essentially (before getting carried away) its about the way each person deals with this new situation/life without family and these new issues...sounds dumb ^^;

haha its great apart from now were actually doing a art course so were kinda doing what were meant to aha, well in real life no! but i find them far easier to draw, even though hands are way more expressive. ha with that confidence your'll go a long way :D i try to find as much time also, its the dynamic poses that i need to do !

It sounds as though either you aren't telling me the whole thing or this is a very fresh story... or that you may also be trying to keep particular details to yourself... Either way, interesting concept, almost like a tale of self exploration... after all, in most stories where a character is taken out of his/her element and placed in a new/different world they change for the better and learn more of themselves... which is also the basic plot of damn near every Pixar movie...

I still haven't figured out what to say, but I want you to take all of these old ideas, write the story and then illustrate the entire fucking thing.
Make a comic book or something...
I'd buy it.
Hell write a novel first, comic book second, then direct an animated version...


Yesssssssss


DO IT!

That is actually my plan. Well the part about making a comic book out of it... not a novelization or an animated movie... although that all is very cool. Damn near all of the characters I have been drawing all belong to the same story, so it's a big one. I have put quite a lot of thought into this and I still have more to do before I could illustrate this. There are well over a dozen characters I have yet to draw a definitive look for and there are some that need fleshing out.

He looks to be burning with a raw determination to rectify the suffering of his lands. The hands are trembling with anguish as his once broken mind has allowed him a newer, more brazen clarity

So, how is it in Canada? From what I've heard it's a beautiful place.

I know XD I just couldn't resist an old gag

Well for me it's really London-ish and cold, which is a bummer for me because I'm most at home in really hot weather. You know that feeling where you're sweating while you're driving. Love it.

Scenic city, its a bunch of urbia surrounded by suburbia, that's how i'd describe it. Actually i'm originally from Southern California, so i'm not like a full-on bleeding syrup, haha

Fuck, I hate the heat. Wanna trade places? :D Strange though, it seems that people hate the general weather they live in... know what I mean? Though, that is not the case for every one. I know some people like the weather around here, in fact, around winter time there are quite a lot of 'Winter Texans;' people who stop by to get away from the cold weather.

why did you tell me such a spoiler D: (or isn't it a spoiler? :slow:)

Oh, that really isn't a spoiler at all! That is one of the first things mentioned in the story. :D Aaron is the main villain in the story; he is the new King of the Daelot Empire. He is possessed by the spirit known as Dimoneus. I'll tell more about him when I submit his profile!

Ha, I know, same here! But, I have to restart actually. Although I made just a few pages, the story I was telling (The Red King) is not the beginning and is a story that occurs much later. Originally, I planned just to draw and illustrate a few stories here and there in no chronological order. (Done for the sake of practice rather then telling the story) Well then, now a good few people have genuinely developed an interest in the story so now I have to restart it again, but this time I'm putting a lot of planning to it so I don't feel like I messed up when I get started. The story is big and there is so much to tell, but I can't tell it all at once so I need good pacing.

I really love his story - it really helps when you write these descriptions, as it allows you to sympathize with the character and in general just helps you understand the piece of art.
