Dare to Dream I - Ghost Town Tetak woke up. It was another morning, the same as the rest. He didn't mind the monotony, though. At least, he didn't think so… Tetak's room was small; he lived in a sort of apartment-like complex. It wasn't so bad, after all, ko-matoran generally keep to themselves. There were never any major fights to be had and no noisy neighbors. If one were to listen closely enough, the only sounds that could normally be heard were clicks and clacks of writing as the scholars stayed up, lost in thought about the latest technological breakthrough and whatnot. Matoran here rarely think of anything other than the future. Tetak thought to himself. By now, he had gotten out of his bed and was on his way to his work. Tetak's work was special compared to his brothers'. He quickly stopped at the desk next to his bed to pick up blueprint ideas. I'd be dead if I showed up without these. He thought to himself, still half-asleep. With a sigh, Tetak placed them into his backpack. It was a handy little device that organized not just papers, but also small tools for his work. Without a word, he swung his pack on and left his room. The hallway outside was empty. Nobody else was up at this hour, so everything was perfectly silent. It always amazed Tetak how a place like this; a place that was, at times, filled with matoran running back and forth to and from their work, could also be so calm. It was almost as if he was alone in the world. No bothers, no friends, no Great Spirit, no virtues or turaga; it was almost sad in a way. Another sigh escaped Tetak's breath as he boarded the elevator. Empty as usual, but he was used to his solitude. With a click of a button, the elevator lowered five floors total. He could hear the gears rustle and creak all too well. For some reason, it always made him think of what it might be like to be underground. Listening to Onu-matoran as their tools picked and chipped away at the rocks, the heavy machinery buzzing in the distance while the carts went rolling back and forth. Sure, the work was far different than what Tetak was used to, but he would often fantasize on a whim. And he knew that was all it was; a whim. There was no lobby in his building. The elevator led directly outside-it was located on the very side of the building and was made specifically for residents on the upper-story. Looking directly at the building, one would see a cylindrical bulge on the right side which stretched from the ground to one floor above the roof for those who star-gazed. There was, of course, a main entrance to allow access to the first floor, and stairs in case of an emergency. Tetak started to head east, noting that it was still dark out. A slight wind blew in the air with a few flakes of snow dropping down. The mountain that they lived on was fairly large, and the location was generally an overlook of their city. As high up as his village was, however, there was one village that was up even higher: the village of lightning.Review
Yume IslandAbout the comic: This is based off of my Epic Dare to Dream and focuses on one of the main characters, a ko-matoran named Tetak. I always wrote with a cryptic style, so I decided to give the contest a try (though I seriously doubt it'll get far. There's some pretty fierce competition in terms of both artwork and stories out there).It didn't turn out anywhere near as well as I'd hoped, but I still got it all done in time for the contest. Only one page, though, and it's a bit rushed. XPComments and Criticism are very much appreciated! ^^
Update: Tetak IIThis is not finished yet. I merely lightly colored him in with colored pencil and used the burn feature on GIMP to darken it (I hope to add a background too, but I'm not sure what I'll do for that, yet).----------------------------------------------TetakI'm still pretty new to drawing, so any comments/criticism are very much appreciated. Well, I haven't really drawn for a while now, so drawing one of my characters is always fun. ^^For those who don't know who this guy is (and let's face it, I bet all of you are totally stumped XP), Tetak is a character from my epic Dare to Dream. He's a matoran of ice who wears the kanohi Iden (So original, I know, but it's actually relevant in the story. XD). All around, he's really not that bad of a guy, but he struggles with self confidence. Whenever he talks in conversation, he usually stutters and shakes nervously out of habit (and the fact that Ko-matoran aren't exactly the most social of folks where he's from, so he hasn't really developed a lot of social skills). He normally gets lost in thought and ponders philosophy among other things and his thoughts follow his own form of logic. His main issue is that he really doesn't know how to act outside of his current life. This becomes a bit of a problem when he is spirited away into a completely new universe where the laws of nature itself contradict each other in a dance of chaos. Anyway, I'm planning on coloring this one with colored pencils, and I hope to add the finished product here once it's done. ^^
So, over the downtime I spent more focus on my little project: Learn how to draw. I have a lot of Bionicle works I could share, but I don't want to flood the forums, so I'll post a little at a time (and only really the ones I think look good enough to share. XP). Anyway, onto my drawing. Laza Laza is an original character of mine from my epic, Dare to Dream. This is my first time drawing her, but I liked her design, generally. I may tweak things a bit in the future. This one was a more recent sketch done around a month ago.
