+Rutto+ by Tankero +Rutto+ by Tankero
Title means "Plague" and it's this characters name.

So...I had a dream about him at last autumn. In that dream we were playing hide and seek in a weird house. I just kept calling him: "Rutto! Where are you?" Thus the name of this character. :'D

This morning I had to draw him. I sketched and painted like mad! Really, my right hand is aching now! D: This took about 2 hours and now I'm shaking. 8D Need some food...

Used: soft black needlepoint pen (wich I absolutely loooove<3), white ink, watercolours and white & sepia chalk pencils.

This is really interesting. My dreams are usually what inspire most of my creations too, although I've barely tapped into bringing them to life visually.

It's really hard to capture right feeling in the picture, if it's inspired by a dream! thank you for commenting! :)

Your use of the word "Know" confuses me. Do you mean "no"?
And why are you angry with your wonderful pictures?

Tankero Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ooops! a spelling mistake! :'DD "Now" is the right word.
It's just...there is nothing in them, they are just nice and pretty. I want to offer more different art, something that gives them feelings; they might feel disgusted or then happy, sad...etc

Ah. That clears it all right up. :)

I look forward to your more emotive pictures, though I always thought that any artistic works had some emotion in them. After all, unless you just pull ideas out of thin air, and don't involve yourself with your creation at all, there will always be some of yourself there, some emotion.

This was only two hours of work? That's a frenzy! It's amazing! The red sky is so strange. Despite it's bright color, it is eerie. There's no sense of joviality from that bright sky, only dread!

Yes, this is certainly creepy...and your dream sounds creepy as well. :faint:

Yup, I was like possessed when I drew this. 8'DD It was very liberating though!

When I look at that sky now after scanning, it reminds of some kind of disease.

I have creepy dreams often! :'D Don't know why really...it's so strange.

Hahaa, I have to say that everytime when I think this guy, this music comes in to my head also: [link]

Wowwie!!! This is so freakin' cool Tankero!

Augh, but it's like a contradiction or something, no? He's got the plague, but he's got a plague doctor mask? Hmmmm. Fascinating; I'm trying to come up with an explanation in my head. ... I got nothin'. :U
Anyway the contradiction isn't a negative; I quite like it!

Also dig the trees. And his stitchy-mask. And his wild hair. The shading on the cloak AND ESPECIALLY HIS FEET. Those little stencil-y flower-y things? So much to look at. *3*

Hahaa, thank you! 8D

Just that contradiction is so weird! X'DD I remember when I woke up from that dream and immediately thought that...THE IRONY
I just can't think a good explanation for that detail.

And this character just keeps bothering me! It's like he's lurking in my brains in some dead parts or something like that...8'DDD He's driving me crazy!

It is extremely ironic! Like what if he was plague doctor and got the plague, anyway? He must've felt like such a loser, hahaha!

Oh, it sounds like you've got a fever, and the only cure is... more Rutto! Well? Get to curing it! Haha! I'd love to see more of this guy.

this is so cool i dont even know quite what to say about it. the graveyard is so simple and creepy. it's all perfect and full of heat and mysterious. i love how you shaded EVERYTHING. the rocks, the sky, his legs.
i cant help wondering what it's like under the mask...or why i would want to see something that may be creepier than the outside <3

Thank you dear!<3 I must say that I really don't know how he looks without the mask. It's so strange when characters are born from a dream; especially from really weird and threatening dream. I seem to have those dreams lately...last time I had a nightmare about deformations in my face, mostly in my mouth! God that was a disgusting dream!
