The Conqueror by Xezansaur
The Conqueror
Just a character I invented. I imagined him to have a story of moral decadence like Darth Vader. This warrior enters the battlefield only when it's time to finish the job, or to retrieve specific hostages from the field. He stays on the mothership and quickly gets on the planet where the battle is going through a gravitational field that, as an elevator, brings him on the ground. His mind was corrupted by the war trauma (in which, in his last fight as a normal field soldier, he lost his real legs and his ability to breath autonomally) and mostly because of the persuasive ways of some politicians that he now serves.
Xiuhcoatl version 2 by Xezansaur
Xiuhcoatl version 2
A second version of the costume I worked on. However, it eventually came up to be a mix between the first and this verison.
I am disappointed.
Those three words must have been pronounced by some other people out there that care about dinosaurs and their look to modern society. 
I admit I had still hope for this film, that gave us (or at least, me) the illusion of a changing. Some day ago, when I read the film has been dubbed for young audiences I understood this was going to be just another animated movie to entertain children. I don't know why I wasn't so scared when I saw the second trailer in which the voices were already there. Maybe I hoped it was just the trailer to attract children and force their parents to watch it.
:iconsmnt2000: 's article, that you can read here ktboundary-smnt2000.blogspot.i… , gives more clues that feed my sadness. I actually feel like someone punched me in the stomach. And now that the movie is drowning in bad reviews, it's a real pity that it could have been a great thing just without those voices. 
Small features can modify drastically the look of anything, even the biggest thing.

This film is even worse than I expected. I thought it was just the voice-acting that ruined the experience, but I was so wrong. Pop music, the facial expressions (mostly eye expressions), the plot itself, the extreme antropomorphism of the characters, the way they act and interact in the envoirnment which is completely unnatural and typical of humans; it deeply disappointed me.
And it's not just that: the film itself is boring and dumb, one of those films in which you get bored and you want to do something else in the middle of the film, when you start thinking at something else and you're looking forward to ending it as soon as possible.
I am so sorry for that. I am so, so sorry.

I was born and I still live in Rome. I draw since I was 7 and just in 2009 I started drawing seriously, making progresses every day. I learned the technique of the shadows during the 2011's summer, thanks to a friend I knew in Dublin. Anyway, I've ever had the passion for prehistoric animals, sci-fi and stuff, so I'm looking for new ways of drawing them better.
P.S. Sorry for possible mistakes


Sono nato e vivo a Roma. Disegno da quando avevo 7 anni, e solo nel 2009 ho cominciato a disegnare seriamente, facendo progressi ogni giorno. Ho imparato la tecnica delle ombre nell'estate 2011 grazie ad un amico che ho conosciuto a Dublino. Comunque ho sempre avuto la passione per gli animali preistorici, la fantascienza e cose del genere, cosė sto cercando nuovi modi per disegnarli meglio.

I've been drawing some stuff this summer, but I moved house and I don't have internet yet, nor I'm able to use the scanner :P
