Lue'maar the Decimator by TitusW Lue'maar the Decimator by TitusW
Now this is the side of Lue'maar he is known for throughout the kingdom- the murder side XD
He has always been a skilled soldier just as his brother Ti'maar, but he always preferred a more "Direct" and "Hands On" role in the Civil War and fighting in general than his brother who prefers more of a leadership role. It really just comes down to Lue'maar genuinely loving killing and fighting :P But not just fighting soldiers, he also loves when he is ordered to butcher innocents. He loves the thrill! [he is a horrible person] He has become famous among the higher classes as an extremely honorable, skilled, and loyal soldier; but to the lower classes he helped enslave and butcher, he is feared and known as the Decimator :P
______

This is that other drawing I mentioned in the Sketchdump #8 :P  I have wanted to do another traditional drawing for a very long time now but didn't have the time! [I still don't haha, oh well :P ] Also coincidently it is halloween today... so this is my halloween drawing! XD 

I finally got to use a new inking tool I got :D a Zebra G-Pen dip pen nib! It has quickly become my new favorite for traditional inking XD [even if this is my first drawing with it XD ] The dip nip is a lot easier to handle than the ink brush, but has far more freedom than a multiliner :P Having to dip it in the ink is annoying to a lazy person like me [as well as having to clean it XD ] But I think the control and the results are worth it! :D 

And I also finally got to use my watercolors again haha. I think it turned out pretty good! XD [especially since I think it is like the 6th time I have used them... yes I am still counting haha] That blood color was a true pain to find a good looking mixture for, but I found one that looks good in the end :D It was a very slow learning experience with the colors the whole way XD [and being sick while coloring it didn't help at all XD ] 

I'll have to do more traditional drawings in the future! I love how they look and it is a great change in pace from digital XD I think it would be absolutely awesome to get good at it too :D

______

So I hope you like the drawing! Let me know what you think about it! ^^ This is truly uncharted territory for me XD

Ah, I love the way you handled traditional media - something seems to be slightly off with his hand, though I can't pin down what, but I love greatly Lue'maar's face and especially his armor. There is so many details and decorations on it, I can tell his wealth and high rank at once. :)

Lue'maar as a character is pretty intriguing to me, since he appears to be a dual person, combining genuine love to his brother with complete disregard to the lives of 'lesser' classes and courage and bravery with cruelty and sadism. Honestly, he seems to be a very messed up person, but for some reason I'm more prone to interpret it as part of the Be'vaal culture rather than outright malice, though I may be wrong in that regard. Anyways, kudos for creating such a memorable and thought-provoking character. :clap:

Glad you like it! :D And his hand is a bit strange looking, I still am out of practice when it comes to hands :P 
And I have needed to draw him with his rank more apparent for ages haha, but I have been lazy and only drawn casual clothing XD I'll try to do armor and stuff more often ^^ Thanks! :D

Ah happy you think so! ^^ He is a strange one for sure! I think a lot of it is just his culture and how he was raised at the top of society, but he does have genuine feelings towards those he loves. It is indeed disturbing his disregard to "lower" people, but I think it does good to show how that can happen in real life too, the disregard of people that upper classes think are lesser than them [which I hate] He'll be a fun one to write for in the future for sure! 
Thanks again! :D

You've outdone yourself this time! :la:
I've already said everything, but I absolutely love this drawing, the lighting is perfect and the details simply mind blowing!

It's incredible considering you've used watercolours so few times. You should definitely practice more, you have a lot of potential with this medium. :D

I actually surprise myself sometimes XD And I'm honored you think so! :la: I will try my best to! :eager:

Well I feel sorry for his brother being related to a sociopath by your description, only thing that bothers me is the sword....something not right about it.

TitusW Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Haha so do I XD He tries his best to deal with him though :P

And I know what you mean XD I kinda... winged it and came up with some random design in my head.... probably could have done better :P What 0laf linked below is kinda what I had in mind, but I agree I didn't make the base seem thick enough [it is much thicker than towards the end of the blade] But also like Chiletrek said it is just a extra side weapon, for more personal executions :P  
I'll have to pay more attention to the design next time XD Thanks for the input! :D

"Luee? Yeah I'm related to him" 

Eh you did what you could, and that matters, you grow with the learning experience and as time goes on you get better. But no surprise personal executions, but who or why? Then again with Luey, it doesn't matter who he's in for the thrill of the kill. 
You're welcome, always glad to help!

I'd say it looks a lot like a xiphos. i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o…
It is possible if the base is thick enough.

TitusW Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Indeed that is kinda what I imagined XD And even though I sucked at showing it, it is quite thicker at the base of the blade :P   Actually was kinda based on a bronze sword I remember seeing, but here it is more steel XD

Hello:
 About the sword, maybe it's about it's lenght? I was guessing that is not his primary weapon, but maybe is the weapon he used to execute someone (a war prisoner maybe?).

I think its where the hand guard stops, where the base is, it just to me seems kind of thin.

:iconchiletrek:
Chiletrek Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2016
 Well, maybe it is, and that could be another reason about why that cannot be a primary weapon.. maybe even more of an ornamental one... just Lue'maar is crazy enough to actually see if he can kill someone with it o_O .

I believe it is XD And I'm happy you like it! :D [I have quite a bit to learn with them still for sure though haha] Thank you! :D
And I'm not exactly sure since I was sick most of the time I made and and working super slow XD [also slow since I was learning the new inking tool and watercolors XD ] So probably like 6-8 hours or more spent of solid work XD Most of it fiddling with paint mixtures and such haha. I'm sure it will all get faster with more practice I'm sure XD [And I hope to get to practice more indeed ^^ ]

I feel bad for Ti'maar, knowing that this guy is his brother. Makes we wonder if there'll be some amazing (and amazingly satisfying) brother-on-brother combat later on.

Ti'maar is certainly not the happiest with his brother's life choices [and his interests XD ] But his brother is still very important to him, and they both love each other still ^^ [even if the relationship is a bit strained XD ] We shall see how it plays out in the comic for sure XD

Hello:
 Even if that in uncharted territory for you, I think that you already made yourself with enough experience and technique that you will have a greater rate of success while experimenting, just like we can see here :) .

 And yay! Lue'maar is then as evil as I thought he'd be; I did have the impression he'd be more of a fighter at the very moment you've mentioned that TI'maar is more of the leaderly-type, and it makes sense.

 Also, the armor design is awesome, I hope we'll get to see a more complete view of it someday :D .

Good point XD I guess it is more just the medium I have to deal with and my problems mixing paint XD The rest of the coloring is about the same as I'm used to :P 

Indeed he is XD Very VERY evil haha
And that is cool! :D Glad you think so! 

And thank you! :D And indeed XD I need to get out of my bad habit of just doing portraits! XD 

Thanks again! ^^

Hello:
 More things change more they stay that same? ok, no, but I am glad you can get used to new mediums :iconlaxdplz: .

 I am glad too, specially because Lue'marr is evil but he is also interesting at times, not knwoing exactly what he might be actually thinking.

 Hehehe, that's fine, but it makes me stil lcurious because you make cool armours :D .

 You are welcome :D .
