Let me come too by joulester Let me come too by joulester
Future Templar knight Nico is preparing to head out on his patrol rounds once again with his faithful steed, Eliab the Ostride. Not wanting to miss yet another opportunity to tour the fascinating but bleak world of the future, knight Jael tags along.

This is a collab art with aimee5's artwork here ---> [link].

Background is entirely done by her, with credits to :icondavid-holland:'s texture brushes. The Ostride is also aimee's brainchild---> [link], which i butchered.

Trying to nail down the colouring style for Templars as well as Squad. Been looking through many artworks on dA for inspiration and lessons. Almost a breakthrough this time, though not yet fully happy with the economy of the style. Still got much to learn, and a long way towards finding that look which i can call my own.

A Templar's comic =) - [link]

I've been wondering why Templars from the future would want to travel back in time to retrieve someone from the medieval ages. Because you know, with the massive difference between culture, technology, and social norms due to different time eras. So I'm guessing that Nico and Jael operate like Sanforn and Deimos www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxPy2h…

Hey, thanks very much! =D

Hmm...Danger Mouse - the characters, you mean? If so, probably because they're bug-eyed and white furred =P

Yea, thanks to aimee5's suggestion, the pic turned out much more interesting with her BG painting than just a flat colour I was going to apply.

Thanks again! =)

Yeah =D

That's the plan - everything in this world is supposed to be strange and redundant, but high tech nonetheless.

Thanks!

What catches my eye is the fascinating design of the robot. I am surprised on how you mix both the sensation of simplicity and complexity:XD: Eliab is sure a shiny character:aww:

Hey thanks! =D

Hmm...interesting comment and observation. Yeah, I heaped extra details on every part of the robot in drawing and coloring. I got lazy in the end and before I realized it, just splotched everything. But glad it somehow worked out. =)

I have been thinking that it may be fun if you draw a sort of blueprints for all your contraptions and robot:la: I still think that they all could be built!

This I feel is one of the best things anyone had ever said about my drawings! =D It makes me relieved and happy that some of my design process and thoughts were able to be communicated across via my handiwork. Imagination for now takes precedence, but a blueprint would be awesome! That will be the next step, if it will at all happen! :la:

Another SUPREMENESS PIC..the filter in that light/dark green-yellow background....the many building bars (must've been damn hard)...,and many awesome things...

The thing is..i tought that,in a beginning,these BUNNIES OwO have a Medieval Era clothing (the Cross at their white clothing) and tought that previous pics of them were ...from the past

But the mix of Future Robots with that is also an interesting thing,unless they wear really protectice stuff down their clothing

Once again,this is an amazing pic...Yes,maybe someday i'll draw that couple (or more of your Sarge Kitty X3) for Fanart ^w^.

Keep up the amazing work =D,i know this is a collab but DAMN GREAT IT IS!! X3

Hey thanks for the awesome comment! =D

Indeed it's the future - this story takes place in the 23th-24th century. Jael however is from the past. She's a genuine knight Templar from 11th century, brought forward by the future guys to become one of the executive mentors for the future knight Templars. The world is in such a state of turmoil that the Templars are desperate to do anything to attain balance - even bringing in spiritual help using time travelling!

Yea, Nico is Jael's bodyguard and assigned colleague. He's a sheep, and she's a bunneh ;)

I truly appreciate you wanting to do fanarts for this. =D I will look forward to it!
