Mental Conflict by Octeapi Mental Conflict by Octeapi
There was a long period of Vortx's life where there was nothing but an internal conflict for him. On whether he should follow his duties as a Irken Armada solider, or if he should follow his heart. Most of his life he had been a loyal member of the empire, and never thought twice of his orders. But after a chance meeting, he began to see things differently. Thus a mental battle began, and the stress and worries that came with it.

That is kinda what I was trying to depict in this image, and thus this became born. I hope you all enjoy it, it's kinda gift for a dear friend of mine ..I went a little over board... five days of work made this appear so enjoy!

Vortx belongs to :iconalison-lynn:

well it is because this character per say was a solider that was growing in ranks in the empire. but after a few chance meetings and lots of scenarios. he began to question this.. and think about his rank and wonder if the irken empire really was the right people to be supporting.

(nods while looking at the art)

Fans really do make nice stories.
Trying to stick to the canonverse exactly makes
things too comical or scary. I remember the Irkens
holding a world festival or something called the
Foodening.

:iconshaplz: I always love seeing images before and after, which kinda applies to this one sense you got to see it before it was finished.
;3; thank you so much for saying so, I really was working hard on this image. I Think for five days or so I have been working on it.
I suppose I was going for a more melancholy feeling, but still somewhat stressed mainly because of the conflict that as going on in Vortx's mind.
I'm glad you like it XD :icongreenheartplz:

I usually don't do backgrounds, So I actually was really proud of this one. I don't quite believe i made it appear like a Irken city but ya know, you win some you lose some.

Emotion is what makes the drama build between the watcher and the image.
