Steve Maximus: Origins: Chapter Thirteen
Chapter 13: Devastation
The magical storm continued to grow with devastating power. Lightning strikes of arcane power struck the towers of the ruined fortress, leaving hardly anything left. Few would dare be outside when such power was devastating the area, but even less would dare go further into it. The young Wolf lord was that said figure.
The werewolf was determined to take down Moriana for what she had done. Having to endure years of torment from the witch, he felt anger, hate and a desire for vengeance; feelings he had long since been connected to long before the two met. Nothing was going to get in his way, not even the force of the magical storm that was pushing against him.
He slew many of Moriana’s creatures that attempted to stop him. They were but leaves being blown by the wind that was Steve’s wrath. What was left were mounds of corpses of those that tried to get in his way.
As he drew closer to the epicenter of the magical storm, the power of said storm

So...laptop isn't working. Diagnostics say something's wrong with the hard drive. Don't know the exact problem nor how long this will take to be resolved. :(

No deviations for the next little bit I suppose...not that my interest in drawing and working on stories being down already for some reason wasn't a problem to begin with. :(

I'll provide a better update when I can get more information. Will contact professionals and see what can be done. Hopefully it won't take much.
Hello, and welcome to another segment of "A Few Minutes with Zorzathir" and I was once a mighty warrior...until I took an arrow to the knee.

So, it's that time for an update. I had not been doing much in the last little while because I was hit with a massive art block back in May. It's mostly gone, which should hopefully mean that I can resume doing some of my projects and all that.

Before I mention about some future stuff, I want to talk about one of the comics that I did not get to finish in May. This is, of course, was for a challenge for :icondeviantuniverse:, which was hosted by :iconclockwerksoul:. Now, if you're not interested in reading this next bit, you can skip to the part which says "Future Projects/Ideas".

The challenge involved having your character in a dream sequence. This was one challenge that I found to be a good chance to show off some insight to one of my characters. More specifically,  Deviant Universe - Steve Maximus by Zorzathir, as it could show of some hints of his mindset and emotions. Of course, the art block came along and interrupted that. Originally, what I had in mind would take, if no more than, ten pages. While the challenge asked for five pages, this was rather interesting to explore and add more to Steve's character.

This was the starting page:  DU: Dreams of Rage: Page 1 by Zorzathir

Now, I have completed the comic, but not in the way in which I intended. It's only five pages and only contains just bits and hints to what I wanted to explore. As such, I won't be submitting to my gallery. However, I will still show them to you on my sta.sh. What I am thinking of doing is redoing this comic in the way that I originally envisioned it. This means "extended scenes" and visuals that are presented the way that I wanted them in the first place. So...I guess you can say that the "proper version" will be a Director's Cut...or a Deviant's Cut...huh...what do you call the DA equivalent of a "Director's Cut"? :confused:

Anyways, I will be working on this in between my other works, because I have other projects and commitments that I must attend. Hopefully I provide the comic which is what I originally wanted.

Now, I am going to provide a commentary on the pages that I have done. So, here's the link to the pages: sta.sh/2ka2ib5sjs9?edit=1 and let's begin.

Page Two:  DU May 02 by Zorzathir

In this page, we transition from Steve sleeping in the real world to having him in his "dream". He is confronted by malefic creatures that throw some insults at him before attacking him. Steve seems to dispatch these creatures. Over right? WRONG! It's only the beginning.

Now, things to note on this page. The fiery background is generic. Because of the time that I had left (or lack thereof), I did not have much time create an environment that would speak specifically to Steve's "dream world". In the proper version, I would think a ruined city (one ravaged by war and rage) would be a proper environment. So, expect to see a lot less stuff "burning" in the proper version.  Ba-dum, CHING 

Now for the malefic creatures. Again, pretty generic, but you know the reason why. When I do the proper version, I was thinking of showing figures that would most likely have appeared in his past, such as his people or victims. As such, don't expect to see shadow demons in the better version.

The one thing to take note here are the insults that thrown at Steve. The ones especially important are "freak" and "abomination". Now, those who followed "Steve Maximus: Origins" will probably know exactly why something like these insults are said; in fact the answer is in the first chapter. So yeah, that's the big part of this comic, which I hope the be enhanced properly in the proper version of the comic.

Page Three:  DU May 03 by Zorzathir

So, it seems Steve has killed a few of these creatures, but they don't hold much relevance, not yet at least. However, someone has arrived...someone that Steve truly despises: Moriana. Now, whether anyone thinks this is the real Moriana coming to pay Steve a visit in his sleep, you're welcome to that idea, but I think my idea would be more...character driven. So, Moriana's asking if Steve's having any fun yet, probably referring to the creatures that he killed.

Steve, on the other hand, seizes Moriana by the throat, who is only smiling as this all happens.

Again, firey background = too generic. Will be better in the actual canon comic.

Page Four:  DU May 04 by Zorzathir

This part is where things get a bit more interesting...well as interesting as it can be with a comic created with an artblock to interfere. So Moriana points out Steve is not having any fun yet based on the lives that he has taken and ruined, as well as those individuals that he betrayed. She says that he should really enjoy what he's doing. As they're talking, those shadowy creatures transform to reveal corpses. Now, the idea here was to the many victims of Steve in the past, including showing on figure that was featured as Moriana mentioned the people that Steve "betrayed". Now this one figure, which you can see in the third panel, is a character I have yet to reveal, but has been featured in the "Steve Maximus: Origin" covers:  Steve Maximus: Origins: Cover by Zorzathir  Steve Maximus: Origins (Cover 2.0) by Zorzathir (Again the pale-skinned woman). Now, I am not for one for sharing spoilers too soon, but I think would be lenient and show off this little detail.

Now, I also wanted to show off a pile of bodies, but again art block results in just black piles instead. -_-'

In short, can do, and will do, better.

Page Five:  DU May 05 by Zorzathir

So, Moriana begins to vanish, taunting Steve as she leaves. Then, we cut back to Steve in the real world, who seems to be very angry.

Now, the idea in all of this comic is because of Steve's rage and negative attitude, he's reliving some past experiences (because that can happen when you're feeling certain emotions) and may give the impression that he's mentally torturing himself (as evident with Moriana, and yes that's not the real Moriana but one created from his memories and his hatred of her).

Overall: Because of the art block I did not get to fully flesh out this idea as much as I wanted. Again, I do want flesh this comic out some more. So I will do this whenever I am not working on any of my other projects.

So, hopefully this comic was not too disappointing, as I feel that this idea could, and will, be expanded on. Now, I may have missed mentioning some details so I will edit to include them if I have to.


--------------------------

Future projects

Esentially, going to be working on my current stuff, such as "Steve Maximus: Origins", along with other commitments that I have to do.

Now I was thinking about doing a comedic comic series, which I mentioned a while back that I titled "Zorz's World". If you guys want me to do something like that, let me know in the comments.

I was also thinking about making a return to doing reviews and top ten lists. Again, let me know if you guys are interested.

I might also do some fanart over the course of the next few months, but what exactly, I'm not sure. Don't want to do too much and burn myself up with everything I need to do.

Anyways, that's stuff to think on.

This has been, "A Few Minutes with Zorzathir". I'm Zorzathir, and I will hopefully not take a block to the head again. ;)
