Some great work by many of my favorite Deviants.

Shayerra by ConnerKonEl
This project came about actually as a school assignment and I have to say that I am surprised with how much I was able to get done in just a period of two days. I've been wanting to create a more muscular female hero and aside from She-Hulk or Wonder Woman, Hawkgirl seemed liked the best option given her warrior background (at least in the Justice League show). I can definitley say though that I'm very happy with a lot of this as it is. Sure there are a few things I could do but for what it is, it works. I'll put the extra time in on the next one...
So its time to deliver the bad news first... I didn't get selected for the semi-finals in the Odyssey Card Contest. It kinda sucks but I'm not at all bothered. These guys were all significantly more polished in their work so they definitley deserved it more! Also, I made colossal improvements in my own methods so I'll definitely be trying again all too soon! 

Thanks to some tutorials by SakimiChan I think I'll be kicking out a new one before the end of the month for sure!
Four days until the announcement of the winners for the card contest I entered Bastrada into... 25 chances to win out of 200+ entries last I checked. I have a good amount of confidence I can score at least one of those slots but at the same time I'm seriously sweating bullets here! Having never gotten a DD it'll be a hell of a surprise if I do become a semi-finalist!
Bastrada - Elding Heift by ConnerKonEl
Bastrada - Elding Heift
Bastrada, a genetically engineered hybrid of a dragon and a giant had wandered the mountains for nearly 300 years before finally venturing into the unknown 'civilized' world. Standing eleven feet tall and a weighing a colossal six hundred pounds, his scaly red body stood out all too well. He cloaked himself in later travels until fate lead him to a Barbarian in need of companions. They set forth and in time formed a ironclad bond of brotherhood. In one of their first adventures, they come across dragon-like creatures similar to Bastrada only to discover that they are slaves to the geneticist that created him. He is a 1st generation. A failed experiment thought all but destroyed. Enraged by their words and cruelty to his kin, Bastrada charges forth coming face to face with a creature identical to him and yet horrifically scarred and battle worn. He stands undeterred by the sight of Bastrada and issues the challenge. Both barbarians charge forth with their party barely causing a scratch in his scaly hide. All looks lost until a moment of fury pushes Bastrada into cleaving the dragon's tail clean off while simultaneously saving his friends. The dragon stumbles back, blood pooling from his wound and reveals he is in fact Bastrada's father. He throws his tower shield to the floor and demands that Bastrada deliver the final blow. The moment is daunting, confusion and rage cloud his thoughts until in a single thrust he pierces his father's heart. The battle is won, he takes the former slaves to his friend's homeland where they make a new life for themselves. Meanwhile, Bastrada's adventures continue.  Learning of a mineral declared fallen from the heavens, Bastrada embraced the barbarian ways and grew a thirst for battle all the while determined to forge the otherworldly Elding Heift. Eventually collecting all the pieces, he forged the blade himself (thus the crude appearance). In his first battle with it the Gods themselves shuddered at the sight as he unknowingly summoned lightning from the heavens and in a single swing devastated his foes. He is now an unstoppable tank with allies unmatched... and yet, there is an entire world yet to be discovered. 
Bastrada the Boulder by ConnerKonEl
Bastrada the Boulder
This is my D&D character, Bastrada (Boss-trah-da). I came up with him on a whim about a year ago and I plan to enter him in the Odyssey Card challenge but this original pic just wasn't epic enough so I'm starting over as of last night. Anyway, he's a half dragon/ giant standing 11ft and weighing in around 600lbs. He grew up isolated in the mountains barely seeing a sole for all of 300 years and now fights alongside his barbarian ally in his quest to restore his crumbled kingdom. Like any barbarian he loves battle, drinking and women (and yes he can use a special gem to take a human guise).

As of right now I'm 29 years old, I have a beautiful girlfriend and am something of a contradiction to stereotypes. I'm very much into anime and comic books so you could definitely classify me a geek yet I also love hitting the gym and am very into bodybuilding. Recently (October 2013) I competed in my first two competitions. I dieted for nearly 3 1/2 months to get ready for them and in all that time I lost almost 60 pounds. Sadly, along with all that excess body fat went some muscle. That loss hurt me a bit and I ended up in last place for both competitions but thats not a problem. Now that I've lost that weight I don't have to worry about so much dieting for next year's competitions! In the meanwhile I'm very happy drawing and writing my own creations.

So what are you actually asking me to draw? Obviously you want something with Sailor Mercury and maybe this OC but I don't fully understand beyond that. Do you want me to re-draw the linked image?

You take requests?
ConnerKonEl Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You would actually only be my second request on DA so yeah, I'll try and squeeze you in. Just understand that I have a very full plate with school, the gym and work. With all the priorities taking up my time I can't promise that I'll finish your request anytime soon. But I will try. 

So what is your request?

Just so you know now, my skills are obviously in people and anatomy. I can do animals somewhat but cars and other technical items are out of my reach. I'm too much a perfectionist and they're far to precise.
