Know Your Enemy by Tuooneo Know Your Enemy by Tuooneo
Inspired by the song "Know Your Enemy" by Hybrid: :star: [link] :star:

A drawing that was lying around forever (at least a good two months or more. @___@) that I finally finished!

Trying to draw better concepts of my Iolarian race. How I imagine them and how they end up getting drawn is totally different. XD I imagine them to be eerie, yet beautiful glowing artificial beings, that almost look like they are made of ice, but still retain that "disease" looking form.

Anyway, fact time!
Iolarians can shapeshift and change sizes (to a point), though usually staying in a small skeletal-like state to reduce energy usage. Iolarians are Noisulli that have had their body taken over by a type of self-replicating nanotechnology (making them nearly immortal), and are extremely intelligent due to infinite brain compacity. They're pretty much walking doomsday devices. Oh boy. :I

No real story behind this drawing, just one of those "pointless Noisulli concepts" again. XD
And just an excuse to use fractals I made in my backgrounds again~ :'DD
Enjoy!

Etinifni / Iolarians / Ranul / Drawn by (c) *Tuooneo

Goodness, this is vibrant. I love how the environment twists into the characters, and vice versa.

The composition and colour of this piece were what caught my attention... and the detail kept me- I really like the moire patterns around the two central figures!

My first thought regarding the title was the Rage Against the Machine song over anything else. Love the combination of colours and artistic styles. Congrats on the DD.

What genre do these creatures fall under, sci-fi, fantasy, or sci-fantasy?

The colors on this are pretty amazing and it has an almost realistic quality to it although its so clearly fantasy O.o Don't know how you pulled that off, but I'm happy you did. This scene in particular reminds me of a scene in Avatar: The Last Airbender (anime of course) when Aang comes face to face with the "Face-stealer". Again, really cool piece, you did a good job.

Surreal and beautiful, the use of the palette gives the piece a very mysterious vibe, as does Iolarians, such a strange design with great execution. Well done Tuooneo, keep it up.

amazing work. the background is so fascinating to look at. Congrats on the DD!
You said you want them to be eerie. You might try getting rid of the eye definition. maybe a barely visible eye on a glowing eyeball or something. I find that always makes my creatures look dangerous. Then whispies and half solid half not....idk. Just a thought. I really love it though.
