Mokkan and Gelltor by 1-Renaissance Mokkan and Gelltor by 1-Renaissance
Requested by :iconkelaiah:

It's foxes this time! Mokkan and Gelltor from Marlfox. Mokkan's the one in the back and Gelltor's in front just so you know.

Sorry if Gelltor appears a bit smudgy. You see my hand was going everywhere on the paper so that was bound to happen. But hey, a Marlfox is supposed to blend in with their surroundings, right? I haven't sketched foxes like this so here's the first.

So there you have them! This time I won't go into a full explanation of them like I did with some other sketches. :D

I'm open to criticism so feel free to point some things out that need attention. I know there's always something. :D

===========
Yeah here's the legal stuff. I don't own Marlfox, Mokkan, Gelltor, Redwall or any of it. Redwall (C) Brian Jacques.

Nice, I like Lantur better since I think she was clever and I like her name. It was sneaky of her to take advantage of her siblings' departure to slowly torment her mother, then kill and become Queen with little competition, just a shame her rule was not long. I like Ziral and Vannan too, but mainly because of their names.

But nice scene. You draw some good foxes as well as other animals (like mice, squirrels, ferrets). I hope you do more fanart soon...

Sometime can you do Vilaya and Zwilt? the two sables from the Sable Quean (I love sable martens) and maybe Zaran the dark otter?

Wow. This is really cool. :D I wasn't expecting a full Marlfox family pic, but it would be nice to see their bro and sis's. Otherwise, really well done. Here have a Llama XD.

The whole family? I should do that. In a royal family portrait style. Thanks for the llama! And just in time for dinner, too! :D

Whoa, that's great!:D:D:D

I really like the shading a backround on this one, great foreground as well. Gelltor looks like he had a bad day:XD: yet when didn't he? Mokkan looks great, it seems as if he has an "air" of command about him.

Thank you. :D

Yeah, poor Gelltor. I know they're supposed to be identical but Mokkan seems better-looking while Gelltor looks rabid and pissed off.

Welcome! :D

Rabid fits him, "I'm a crazy rabid fox! And I want my COOKIE!!" (Sorry I watched Over the Hedge today...) And Mokkan should look a bit better, he's supposed to be the leader of sorts.:P

Whoa, amazing!
I read the book ages ago and I can still remember it so well...
>-> How the hell squirrels actually managed not to get eaten is beyond me but hey, that's irrelevant.

I'd imagine foxes would have longer tails, but then again foxes aren't supposed to stand on two paws either so... Chea.

WHOA, *AWESOME*! :D :D :D I love it! :D :D :D

Heh, I love how the forest that they're emerging from is all dark and black and scarey; its like they're coming out of the world of darkness and evil that spawned them to pray on the land of the light.... creepy good. :D

I actually do like how Gelltor is all smudged up; like you said, it adds to the whole "Marlfoxes can disappear!" thing. :)

Only 2 real critiques: their bodies are kind mustelid-ish (but I imagine that's only because you're more used to mustelids in the first place ;)), and Gelltor is a little bit too much smaller than Mokkan, they were actually the same size.

But you managed to capture their personalities very well: Mokkan is handsome and sinister and yet somehow cordial-looking and slightly charismatic, whereas Gelltor is snarly and savage and has a bloodthirsty look about him.

I was surprised at first at the style you chose for their axes, because I recall that their axes were double-bladed, but you drew the ones in your sketch so magnificently that I really don't care. :D

Background's awesome too, love the shading, just an all-round good job! Thank you for doing this! Excellente! ;) :D :clap: :clap: :clap:

Dang that's a lot of writing. That's GOOD!!

I guess you're right about the mustelid-ish bodies. I've drawn too many ferrets, weasels, and otters and not enough other creatures. I'll practice sketching other species as well.

I suspected that Mokkan was "handsome and sinister" but I didn't worry about that, so I was proud how his face turned out. I couldn't believe that I actually took a liking to him. Same thing happened when I was sketching Ublaz. Jeez.

Double-bladed axes, eh? I recall reading "single-bladed axe".

But thank you so much for that and you're very welcome! :D:D:D

:XD: Heh, thanks....

But yeah, it is easy to get into a grove when drawing, I know I've gotten into Nelvana's style maybe a bit too deeply to make my species look their own species, but fortunately I've received some good advice on that. :)

Haha, that's good. I suppose its easy to take a liking to a character if they're pretty to draw. ;) :XD: Heh, if you've read my fics, though, you'll notice that I tend to torture (in a humorous way) characters like Mokkan and Ublaz. But at least they deserve it. :evillaugh:

Hm, now that I think about it, I recall reading that too... maybe some of them had single-headed but others had double-headed... that's an interesting factor, it would help when we get around to making "Marlfox" a movie. (For some reason "Marlfox" is the one project I'm looking forward to the most ^^).

And your welcome. :)

Looks good. The one in the back's face is a bit too close to the same shading as the tree, it blends in a bit, though that's the point of Marlfoxes, as you said.
