SMITE - The Price of Betrayal by Dante-Aran
SMITE - The Price of Betrayal
"Stories claim she was beautiful once. A priestess of Athena. Loyal and devout in action, but Poseidon was determined to make her his own. It was the fairness of her features, the golden of her hair, that attracted the Sea God. Medusa, a mortal maiden, could not refuse.

When Athena learned of Medusa's betrayal, she punished the priestess. Those fair features were hideously wrought and those golden locks twisted to hissing vipers. Anyone that met her eyes was petrified – a statue for all eternity..." 


WELP. I sort of went all out on this. 8'D Okay not really, but nevertheless I was testing a new coloring and art style with this so it required a lot more effort than I'm used to. x'D And all the scales. I actually drew all of it... //sobs internally//

Anyway, this week's art challenge was to draw Medusa, and naturally I really couldn't pass up the opportunity this time since this image has been stuck in my head ever since I knew about Medusa's lore. x'D I've also always wanted to draw a SMITE character according to their story at some point, and Medusa's lore was a pretty good place to start for me considering how she's a beautiful human turned gorgon. If there's also something I absolutely love about SMITE's version of Medusa, it's the treatment they did with her face. The stone mask especially was a great touch for me. I should probably get to drawing it sometime in the future in fact. haha x'D

And the more I look at this, the more I actually remember how as a child I used to have pretty graphic and traumatizing nightmares of Medusa. :iconmingtearsplz: It's great though that I've gone way past that since it's been roughly 16 years since I had those nightmares, though I admit, the fear did resurface for a bit while drawing this. It acted as a good enough drive for me though when drawing the expressions at least. It's no wonder I'm pretty happy with the end result. |'D

Ethernitas - You really had to say it did you? by Dante-Aran
Ethernitas - You really had to say it did you?

"Alright--- Go into some caves; look for some clues- all the jib jab and what nots to fix the Ether shortage."


"What? A little darkness never scared either of us. I mean... Come on, Gatz! What's the worst that can happen?"



And here we have Roku being his usual overly calm self regardless if this place screams hazards and death. :iconpoker-faceplz:

At least he's always got a partner by his side to watch out for danger!
Now it's just a matter of how long Gatz can take Roku and his antics before finally cracking. :iconbadpokerfaceplz:

Also decided to start moving my quotations into the black areas of these screenshot type images since lately they've been blocking details on my artworks. :iconmingplz:

...Wow look at all the meme icons. :iconimsotiredplz:

Roku, Gatz and art belongs to me.

FNAF3 - MY NAME... by Dante-Aran
Wooooh- since when do I do Five Nights at Freddy's fanart. |'D And I know I fricked up a couple of details on his face. Still pretty new to trad art and pens tbh. 8'D

Admittedly, Golden Freddy was my favorite animatronic, but Springtrap ended up really taking the cake for me in terms of creepy design and concept. 8'I

I mean... Jeebus, if all the other animatronics gave you the fear of being shoved into one or got you creeped out by the thought that there could be a kid's body inside of them, Springtrap actually goes the distance by showing you on occasion the dead guy's FACE. I don't know man- I just... love how creepy and human-like this animatronic is. :iconpapmingplz: It was also important that I kept the face detail underneath the animatronic's head. Just knowing what's underneath the head honestly makes his stare x10 creepy for me. Really, try staring at springtrap's face long enough until you only see Purple man's face. You really no longer see the smile on Springtrap's face.

Tools used: Pencil, Watercolors, Artline Drawing System and Calligraphy pens

CT - M1 P2 From the Waterfall by Dante-Aran
CT - M1 P2 From the Waterfall

After retrieving the crystal, a wild Mandragora appears. And as the rocks held up by the crystal fall and create a sturdy ground, the fighter is caught in a stare-off against the monster while the water current washes next to them.

Points Earned [ 1440 (720 Fullbody x2 if monster is included???) + 700 (Environment fully shaded) + Star! 750EXP ] x 2 = 4420 EXP

EDIT: Changed line colors because I realized brown wasn't really looking great against the mood. x'D

Namnco and art belongs to me.
