Eli'maar by TitusW Eli'maar by TitusW
Character concept of one of my new characters in the graphic novel I am writing! ^^ His name is Eli'maar :D Not much to say right now about him, due to most of it being in the story, but I will explain him a bit XD 

Eli'maar is a younger brother of the twins Ti'maar and Lue'maar (who I have posted drawings of already). He was disowned by his father and family several years before he became a legal adult at age 12. He then "left" them to be trained as an advanced scout for the military instead of a soldier (slaughterer) and military leader like his father and older brothers were. Due to this, he is a relatively solitary guy who is always traveling on some sort of mission. Personality wise, he is a lot like Ti'maar with only a few differences. Also he is quite young, but I won't say exactly how old he is :P

As I was writing, this character really grew on me, and now he is one of my favorites! (though he has been around for a few months now XD ) He will now be a major character in the story, so I couldn't resist getting a drawing of him made! ^^ Here he is shown in his normal clothing and equipment he wears on a day to day basis while traveling for his job as a scout. Also, as you may have noticed, he has the rare King Cheetah fur pattern! :D I've waited a while for the right time to make a character with that pattern, and it fits him perfectly! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! (I think he is adorable haha) 

_____

---[COMIC PROGRESS UPDATE!!!]--- I'd also like to say I have made some amazing progress in writing the last week! I hit some artblock after my last drawing and decided to write instead XD I spent hours and hours gathering ideas I have written down and thought about the last few months, story outlines, and notes, and I forged them into the final story! Where I am now, I am MUCH happier with it overall than I ever was with the past version ^^
SO... now I'm very happy to say I'm actually at a point where I can begin to draw and post pages again! :D I will probably polish up the script a bit more before doing so (finalizing dialogues and scenes more), but I thought I would like to let you all know the status of the comic XD If you randomly start seeing pages again you know why! I'm so excited! :D ---

Let me know what you think of the new character! Comments, suggestions, and critiques welcomed as always! ^^ Thank you! :D

That's very nice, and cheetahs happen to be one of my most favorite kinds of animals as well. :D

He seems more trustworthy than Loony Lue' (hope he didn't hear that), I can imagine as a scout he's very valuable. So would he be somewhat of a survivalist due to his occupation?

Oooh I love his outfit! (Makes me realize I need to research fashion more :P ) I can't wait to see more of him your graphic novel to see what role he'll play. I'm so happy to hear the writing is going well! :la:

The unique design was what caught me eye first - I love how his attire is different from what we usually see in your setting; while Lue'maar wears military clothes and Ti'maar has more of official clothing style, Eli'maar looks like a read desert nomad, that with the cowl and a lot of layers of cloths. :) The king cheetah pattern makes him look especially cute. :love:

That backstory, though... Did I get it right that he was disowned just because he chose a 'cowardly' way of being a scout instead of a more war-like profession? I never realized that Ti'maar and Lue'maar were twins - I knew them to be brothers, but I always got impression that Lue'maar is older. :plotting: By the way, how fast does anthros age in your setting?

Hello:
 I knew hw would be a relative to Ti'maar as I saw the "maar" in his name. I think you mentioned him once. I like a lot his clothing and fur pattern! quite interesting and different to normal cheetahs :iconcheetahlaplz: . the name is also cool, but ouch about his story, I guess we'll have to wait to know why he was disowned :( .

 Keep it up!

Hello:
 It must have been ages ago, but I do have enough memory to remember some of the bits you spoil :D .

 I know by now that there are far worse fates for the poor kitties, hehehe.

 You are welcome! :D .

All the detail too. Down to the texture of the leather pouches and scabbards to the knurling for the grips on the knives and sword. The pattern looks rather like a spatha or gladius?

And I agree! There are FAR too few of them in the anthro genre! 

And I will keep it in mind, thanks! :D

Not only anthro per se, but stuff that has the courage of showing new species and cultures people can relate with, something new and fresh that allows us to explore new realms of possibility. When I look at your cheetah folk it is not only their (great) looks that catch my attention, but also their clothes, their culture, I even imagine what their music and art may look like. It makes me excited to see more. 

Hey, I know first hand how hard is to come with stuff like this, so I'm always eager to help. I want to see more stuff like this around. ^^
