Ruler of the Shinkuyama Empire within the Eye of the Mountains and the adjoining regions of BOTH Lower and Upper Dragontooth Mountains!
Here is the inked and partially colored drawing of Crimson-Barrow Zatina, the Empress-Goddess Dragoon of the Eye and the Progenitor-Ruler of Shinkuyama!
I originally used the Berserk 2017 Opening Theme to do the pencil drawing. But since I actually KNOW AND ALREADY WROTE OUT Rouge's history then I needed an appropriate theme to ink and color Her to.
And that is when I remembered I had Dio's World theme saved.
So I simply listened to THIS while I was in the process of Inking Rouge and Here is Her INKED PICTURE;
One of the biggest characteristics about Rouge that is abnormal, BUT TYPICAL for how the Children and Descendants of Mang inherited Their Motherrace's evolutionary-ability. Is the fact that the more aggressive and successful that Mang-Child or Descendant is, then THEIR PHYSICAL-ABILITIES AND EVEN THEIR BODIES.
Begin to take on features that SEPARATE THEM from the rest of Their Kin-n-Kind.
Long before Scargill and His Plane-Companions ever interacted with Rouge.
She'd risen up through the ranks of the Nendo-Dragoon of Lower Dragontooth Mountains. And Her victories and successes in expanding and defending Nendo mutated Her Body. Her long tail and enhanced tail-emitter were Her signature physical features where Her Tail literally had become just as strong as her entire body!
Which is ultimately what allowed Her to defeat the previous Queen of Nendo and destroy and replace her. Her eventual defeat at Scargill's hands would actually push Her Evolution to even higher heights where the finished drawing APPROPRIATELY HIGHLIGHTS HOW SHE'S EVOLVED;
When I went on ahead and did the drawing for the Quwari-Mountain Dragoons.
The first thing was the fact that I'd used one of my larger sketch-pads, so!? I couldn't fit her all on the goddamn scanner!
So I had to do bits and pieces to get all of her on the scanner and saved.
So then once I got that done, of course, this is a GENERIC PICTURE. This isn't any SPECIFIC Quwari-Mountain Dragoon. She is just atypical for the Quwari-Mountain Dragoons of Dragontooth Mountains, now!?
People who saw the picture first hand immediately could tell that this isn't some tiny little tramp traipsing around the mountains with nothing better to do!
So when they asked me for some background details and I explained it to them they were like "So wait, the whole goddamn mountain is filled with these things!? SO HOW BIG ARE THE FUCKIN MOUNTAINS!?!?!"
They were immediately reminded that THIS IS NOT EARTH! And this is the PRIMARY REASON OF WHAT SPARKED THE CREATION OF THIS STORYLINE AND WHY I'VE SWERVED THE WAY THAT I HAVE!
I was LITERALLY working on the Tansoba-storyline and it is THE FACT THAT all of these OTHER STORYLINES ARE ALREADY IN MY HEAD AND NOTES ARE HERE THERE EVERY-FUCKIN-WHERE!
That caused Me to say to myself "Medusa-Godiva and the GS-Classes of Earth? They'd FIT RIGHT-IN IN UNDERWORLD-REALM! Because they're just these MASSIVE BEHEMOTH BITCHES MEANT FOR MASS-DESTRUCTION AND MOBILE-CITY MILPOL-MATTERS!"
But when you get down to the Truth of the Matter?
Earth is NOT BUILT FOR SHIT LIKE THIS!
It just ISN'T!
So to have Underworld-Realm races and regions actually coming to earth with the full-intent of waging war, it would, the planet wouldn't survive. Fuck whether or not We would, the planet, is NOT BUILT for this kind of shit. End of discussion. And it is a big-reason why the GS-Classes have been frozen since WWII on earth. Aside from the fact that they COST INSANE AMOUNTS TO FUCKIN BUILD!
Then you're talking about crewing them.
And what about the GS-Herself?
What's Her Personality going to be like?
What nation was she created by and born underneath?
What if this big-ass bitch GOES ROGUE SOMEHOW!?
The Dragoons of HELL, are SMALLER VERSIONS of Earth's GS-Classes. But they are BIGGER THAN the Capital-MADAMS that earth has, worse than this...?
For starters are able to reproduce on Their Own.
They can also, SHRINK DOWN TO GIANT-SIZE.
Like everyone else of Underworld-Realm.
Dragoons are BIOTECH-LIFEFORMS.
As you can see by the above picture that certainly IS NOT a single-seat cockpit or some shit like that on Her Back.
It is akin to an earth-style battleship-bridge or tower. So now if You WANNA FIGURE OUT SCALE THERE YOU GO!
You can also see why the Quwari-Empire and the Great Betrayers got into a LOT OF TROUBLE! When Their Dragoons withdrew and began congregating amongst themselves all across Dragon-Dynasty held HELL.
That's like the best parts of any human-military equipment, DECIDING TO TELL YOU TO GO FUCK YOURSELF AND YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN!
The tanks roll out WITH NO HUMANS IN THEM.
The Naval Ships sail off to wherever and ALL HUMAN CONTROL IS LOST!
The various aircraft EJECT THEIR PILOTS AND PEEL OUT FOR WHO THE FUCK KNOWS WHERE!?!!??
It's just NOT A GOOD LOOK.
Nor is it good for you if you're a country that's always ATTACKING OTHER PEOPLE AND PLACES!
Their equipment and mechanized-shit is behaving just fuckin fine.
Now you got a problem.
A BIG FUCKIN PROBLEM!
I intend to do an actual technical post that actually details what is what and breaks down the abilities of a Quwari-Mountain Dragoon. But My First Task is to finish the Scargill-story....
The Quwari-Mountain Dragoons of Dragontooth Mountains were at one point part of the Quwari-Empire and used to be an integral part of it. However as Tanis Dragon-Dynasty withdrew more and more of its direct command-n-control over HELL. This left the Quwari-Empress at odds with the False Empress of HELL, who was in actuality a figurehead with a figurehead's position.
As the 1000's of years wore on and the Dragon-Dynasty had all but ceased direct control, this of course allowed for the True Empress of HELL to begin pushing back from the Lower-Planes of HELL and threatening the False-Empress, whose job it was to keep her pinned down and trapped!
This in turn, however, caused the False-Empress of HELL to begin making moves on Her Own and realizing that the Quwari-Empress was now a problem since she no longer possessed the direct support of Their Mutual Dragon-Dynasty Myzama.
A power struggle broke out between the False-Empress and the Quwari-Empress, to which the True-Empress was able to capitalize!
At the same time pressures were being put on the Quwari-Empress by the various Whore Demons who'd sided with the Dragon-Dynasty, which had finally abandoned all of them and withdrawn back to Tanis Island!
The various races who'd sided with the Dragon-Dynasty Invasion had become known as The Great Betrayers. And for as long as Dragon-Dynasty support was with them they literally did handle any and everything that came up good or bad.
But with the complete withdrawal and then ultimate abandonment by the Dragon-Dynasty, infighting over what to do next took hold within The Great Betrayers. Never mind that a split took place within Their Own Ranks, as Great Betrayers in the Mid-n-Lower Planes of HELL sided with the False-Empress. While others stayed loyal to the Quwari-Empress who was safe-n-sound on the Upper-Levels!
While still even more stayed loyal to the Dragon-Dynasty that was nowhere to be found. But for this group...!?
This group believed that this entire ordeal was a test to see if they could maintain all that had been gained while under Dragon-Dynasty support and protection. For this group they would become one of the first milpol-sects within The Great Betrayers, known as the Cult of the Dragon's-Claw.
These types of military-political organizations and sects would begin to spin into more and more radically religious groups such as The Dragon's-Fang and the Horn of the Dragon. Each one having Their Own Spin on what The Great Betrayers were supposed to do in the absence of the Dragon-Dynasty.
And while these groups were springing up in the Mid-n-Lower Planes. In the Upper-Planes there were already such milpol-n-secret sects-n-societies! Because of the fact that it was the Quwari and Beshari who'd originally been approached and convinced by the Great Spy Myzama of the Dragon-Dynasty, to defect and betray HELL in the first place.
So while these new factions came about they were unaware that such milpol-factions already existed from the very start of even before the Dragon-Dynasty actually invaded HELL. And it was these factions that had been tasked with spreading out into the Mid-n-Lower Planes and convincing and corrupting and cajoling and disrupting!
The former pre-existing order of HELL during its Primordial and Early 1st-Age Unified state. It would be these factions, the Vudune. The-13. The Believers. And a number of other founding factions of the Great Betrayers. That were all located in and around the Upper-Planes within the Quwari-Empire. It would be Their Infighting. That would actually cause everything to crumble!
Once the Quwari-Empress and False-Empress, FELL OUT!?
The False-Empress lost Her Means to be able to even get word out and back to Tanis Island securely. She also was quickly reminded that while Her Factions were newly formed, anyone around Her could be from the Founding Factions of the Great Betrayers. Where they existed for as far as whatever reach the Dragon-Dynasty had in HELL. This helped to further destabilize and demoralize Her, making Her an easier mark for the True-Empress to attack and take down!
Meanwhile within the Quwari-Empire, open warfare began to break out, thus disrupting Their Ability to continue to function as a cohesive nation as well. And Their Problems were centered around what exactly were they supposed to be doing now that they were completely on their own and had no known future anything, coming from the Dragon-Dynasty.
In the midst of all of this chaos and bullshit...?
Sat powerful forces like the Quwari-Mountain Dragoons.
Who were not aligned with any of the milpol-sectional shit that they'd always swore would become a problem in the long run, and now...!?
The long-run was here and sure enough!?
Shit became a problem.
For many of the Dragoons, they had the capacity and ability to simply withdraw, regardless of who liked it or not. But for the smaller Dragonhorses and such, they were literally saddled with having to fight through the bullshit of the bitches who rode on Their Backs.
Dragoons, regardless of type, don't like overt displays of weakness and stupidity where the end result actually doesn't matter. To the masses of Great Betrayer Dragoons, regardless of which Plane they were on. The infighting over the obvious was a massive embarrassment that led many of them to simply abandon their posts and withdraw to wherever they could to get away from the sudden fits of violence by bitches where...?
The Dragoons knew that without the Dragon-Dynasty to at least keep shit in order, then they'd all revert back to the shitty statuses they had under the original social and caste-class system during the U-EL Age (Unified-HELL). Various Dragoons at various levels, attempted to get the rest of the Great Betrayers to simply put together a contingency to go to Tanis Island and flat out beg for Them to dispatch a Regent, which would quickly end the conflicts on all levels.
The irony was that the Dragoons were seen as naive and stupid for suggesting such things. A problem that they had when they were all under the U-EL Age. Where they were simply seen as big dumb brutebitches meant to fly into battle and ferry everybody else about and kill and destroy until they in turn were killed and destroyed!
It became obvious that each of the various Great Betrayer Factions had become full of Themselves and Their Own Idiotic-Ideology! Where all of them simply saw the Dragoons as naive giant idiots who knew nothing about the complexities of politics and power!
Needless to say they weren't happy.
And none were more unhappy than the various Dragoons who lived in the heart of the Quwari-Empire, where everything was founded at and where bitches ought to know fuckin better after all the shit they'd gone through to get what they got!
In retaliation for being ignored, the various Great Betrayer Dragoons withdrew, regardless of whatever Plane of HELL they were on. And so it doesn't take a rocket-scientist to know that this of course had horrific impacts on the stability of each Plane and the ability of its central authority to maintain itself!
Never mind the fact that The True-Empress and Her Forces weren't having this problem. However she wasn't without being infected by the same Stupidity-Bug that her opposition was being mercilessly bitten up by too!
On too many occasions she would attack Dragoons after defeating Great Betrayer cities and planes and find that unlike when they were dispersed amongst Their Assigned Planes, some had actually gathered in Planes they had no business being on and it wasn't like anyone was really trying to stop them when they passed through the gate-portal, IN MOST, instances.
So these types of blunders would also play a hand in Her ultimately meeting Her End alongside the False-Empress. As for the Quwari-Mountain Dragoons of Dragontooth Mountains?
They have made it Their Business to keep people off Their Mountains as best as possible. Their biggest enemies have been the Ryotahn of Killgutt-Forest. Who used to be the region known for functioning as their soldiery, support and commanders. A number of wars have taken place between the two sides with Killgutt-Forest usually abandoning their campaigns due to attacks by Lankshaw-County and Kapanga-Queendom, exploiting the fact that they are once again trying to retake the mountains and reclaim the Dragoons for Themselves.
The 10's of Thousands of years have made the Dragontooth Mountains Quwari-Dragoons extremely non-cooperative to what they now call, "domestication".
Much of their biotech-systems and weaponry have become suspect thanks to the fact that they do not have the advanced sciences and biomedical-skills needed maintain themselves. Since they are in actuality, living ships.
They have devolved into a bunch of territorial War-Queens and Empresses within the mountains where it is all about taking territory from one another and subjugating each other with alliances made only once one War-Queen or Empress has proven herself stronger than another or others. Territories that are on the outermost parts of the mountains are held by the weakest war-queens and empresses and oft times change hands internally when a Dragoon evolves enough to dethrone and destroy the current ruler. It is through this madness that Scargill and His Plane-Companions had to travel to try to reach the Eye of Dragontooth Mountains and make Their Way to Frontier-Fort Ta-Nang in Lankshaw-County.....
I made sure to include the original drawing and inking because I spent the majority of the day coloring this drawing, mind you...!?
The Dragontooth Mountains are crawling with Dragoons and it is the primary reason why nobody uses the mountains to invade into one another's territory.
The biggest thing to note here is the FACT that Scargill does actually cross the Lower Dragontooth Mountains and of course he ends up loosing most of the army he entered into the mountains with! And it is because taking on hoardes of Quwari-Dragoons is NOT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by everybody.
I've had 4-hours of sleep today.
I got up at 5am EST.
Did my stretches and workout and headed out to the day-job!
While I was there I was about to start working on Chapter 2 for the Scargill-story.
When I decided to draw what EXACTLY a Quwari-Dragoon looked like living in the Dragontooth Mountains.
I started at 1pm EST and barely finished inking ENOUGH of the drawing to bother to post it now.
But here she is and I decided to use Blackout's Attack as the music I drew Her to;
As you can see I did not finish inking the tail, because it was already time for me to get up out of there and I was running on fumes as it was. I thought about doing an entire landscape, but that would have to be removed when the drawing is converted over for merchandising on My Webshop.
I've still got to work on my drawing skills and especially when it comes to drawing animal/beast-type creatures and hybrids with humans. This was another reason why I went on ahead and even though I was and still am, dead-tired now. I said lemme push it like I said in my post pushing my drawing abilities. I'm looking to IMPROVE MY ABILITIES as an artist and only by constantly practicing can I accomplish that, but all-in-all, she turned out better than I thought!
Which is always good.
Tomorrow I'll finish inking the tail and color Her in. And as usual, the drawing is more than meets the eye. And I'm not gonna spoil that, what I will TYPE IS THIS;
Dragoons are of course bigger than dragons which are of course bigger than dragonhorses. Also this is a Quwari-Dragoon. I already have A LIST OF THE VARIOUS DRAGON-N-DRAGOON TYPES!
Either way, that's the INKED drawing.
I'll post Her FINISHED PIC TOMORROW!
