Feeling so hopeless by Octeapi Feeling so hopeless by Octeapi
This is for Zerna's music contest, finished last minute too. A few more days and I don't think I would of made the cut!
Anyways the thing i was going for here is how after loosing his crew Tex turned into a completely different person. Kinda seems like he lost a lot of hope after everything.
When you loose everything that you had built up all of your life, and along with it your friends. Almost like your entire family, it really must be hard to let go.

Breaking Benjamin - Hopeless

The Tex's belong to :iconzerna:

Art belongs to :iconkohan-the-akatsuki:

Ahh this one is really impressive--the colors and mood hit me in the face as soon as I saw it. I've actually been meaning to draw something like this for a good while--guess you handled that for me. :XD:

Really love the poses here, very impressive--and the BOOTS. Boots. VERY impressive job. =w=~

And Aahh Breaking Benjamin..always inspiring.

I feel kinda like it could use some tweaking but i suppose that is just trying to be a perfectionist coming up again.
Overall though I am pretty happy with what the finished product is.
When I saw how much Tex had changed when he entered blood sport I just had to draw the two different sides of him together. ;3 and the IDea to draw him with himself in the ship where his crew died was too irresistible
I guess i did! XD But I would still love to see what you had been thinking of drawing.

The poses were a pain to do, i quite literally spent a day walking around my high school looking at how people were sitting around the school for ideas. Sketching down stick figures and finally i found two that went together the way i wanted them to. So here we go applied to digital art.
The boots were teh devil, i love boots, love how they look, love how they feel. DESPISE drawing them...

I really am pleased to enjoyed this, i look forward to your judging XD Good luck with that by the way it seems to me that you have quite the challenge ahead of you.

Breaking Benjamin is one of my favorite bands, along with Hoobastank, and Red.

Everything we do can use tweaking, so no worries in that department.

Quite sad, how much he changed. ;w; <3

I may still draw it, one of these days. -w-

Oh wow. XDD That's really impressive. I did that in high school too and I got weird looks. |D BUT your references really paid off.

Agreed. Boots. :icondothisthingplz: Just. and woo Hoobastank. X)

<33 Thanks. Judging is finished up tonight.

There really never is a end to artistic improvement out there. XD It is the sad truth we all must come to cope with. ;-;

It really is :iconcryforeverplz: BUT! On another note One Tex can be used for comedy and the other Tex can be used for intense Blood Sport bad ass behavior. So it all works out in the end

one of these days? My that is quite a dangerous statement XD

I actually got kicked out one of the class rooms XD I slipped into one that was just kinda study hall but the students eventually got creeped out. >-> so the teacher asked me to leave. I actually find it really amusing the reactions you can get, some people will pose for you, others will stare at you awkwardly. And then there are teh few who will just start avoiding you like the plague the rest of the year. Amazing how it all works.

Fortunately Ican be as much of a artistic creeper as i like this year. Seniority strikes again!

:iconraegplz: The thing we hate we love...

What kind of music are you into? Personally I am not one for heavy metal or like any screamo. I vary from Hoobastank to Two Steps from Hell.

I can't wait to see who you select, truthfully if I was in your boots having to choose I believe I might just die. There is no way I would be able to decide. ;-;

True that.

And yes, Tex is a versatile character.

<XD LOL gotta work on being sneaky that way.

I'm into all kinds. World, classical, techno, pop, soft rock, VERY LITTLE RAP, reggae, jazz...:iconallthethingsplz: Aw yis.

<33 All done now. Late reply is late.
Octeapi Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012  Student Digital Artist
sorry for late reply.

Yes that is something i have to work on, i don't think that i can sneak around so stealthily. At least not yet, it is a skill i must learn to polish! XD

wow you are all over the place! I am kinda the same way, it all depends on the song really.
Zerna Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
yeahh definitely not a problem.

X3 Same.
