Vigil Villains: Nest by Kostmeyer Vigil Villains: Nest by Kostmeyer
Another entry from the Vigil Villains competition, in which I was so impressed by the entries that in a rash moment of weakness I said I'd draw thenm all! That was over two years ago now, but I'm going to finish them one day!

This entry is by the prolific and talented :iconspeedslide:



He didn't provide a background to the character, but I think the picture speaks for itself, doesn't it!

Hope you like it Seb!

Don't worry - it's not taking SW drawing time :) I've been tinkering with this image for a while now. Glad you like the edit!

Nope - a little photoshop tinkering. What do you think? Better? Worse?

better! I think it's cool how Nest's face is a bit unclear. It wasn't like that before was it? lol

No - I thought a distortion effect there would be nice since that's where the psi-tendrils are coming from.

I just noticed (or rather, paid close attention and started thinking) that those psy-tentacles piercing Vigil look like they hurt like hell. very, very nice work on that one man.

Thanks for the kind words and the :+fav: - Seb designed a really nasty character here with powers specifically designed to take down Vigil I think! Incidentally, if you like the character, Seb did say that he'll be drawing Next and Vigil himself fairly soon - it might be worth reminding him!

Great image man and really well executed with the colours. Does look abit like one of those manga tentacle things just because the purple lights under her costume. lol But awesome picture man, the villain looks great.

Glad you like! Hmm - yeah I wasn't aware of any scary manga overtones to this - scary manga is something I've mercifully avoided up until now! No more tentacle pics for a while I think!

Amazing. I love the way the tentacles go under her psychic armour. Is that a reflection of what's going on in her mind?

Well all of these characters were designed to be credible threats to Vigil (well, maybe not the little elf clone, but the others!) and it wouldn't be much of a reward for the artists who submitted them if I just drew Vigil kicking the crap out of their creations, would it! Glad you like the pic and thanks for the :+fav:!

Ouch... I don't care if it's Vigil, that HAS to hurt!

This was EXACTLY how I imagined that Nest would handle it's victim - Brutally rupturing Vigil's telekinetic armour and munching on it like cotton candy in a both physical and mental manner, forcing itself into her body and mind (Forgive the unintentional choice of words, given those tentacle rape comments earlier...) for the mental energy inside.

Now for the artistic praise... This is brilliant! Although I didn't give her that much curves to start with, intending to make her 'skinny like a corpse', I know see just how great it works out. A hot corpse sustained by mental energy... I guess you're correct, I AM a genious! :evillaugh:

And the glow... Aw heck, it's brilliant. 'Nuff said!

To be fair, I was planning on putting this character in the public domain of another creator if I lost the competition, but since you're that fond of her, then by all means, keep her.

And just to make one more thing clear... I swear that I never had any thoughts about tentacle rape when I designed her (or it, depending on how you see it) ... At least not until you guys mentioned it! :stupidme: Thank you so much for putting that in there to remain etsed into my brain! :lmao:

Really pleased you like this! In retrospect I should have made Nest more skinny and corpse like - but maybe she gets more 'healthy' as she draws energy from a host? I don't know - she's a great looking character and I don't think you can be held responsible for what some people read into it -it's a superhero pic - thats it! Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar...

Thanks a lot for the :+fav:!
