Some coolness, Heaven... by EmbracedByDvorovoi Some coolness, Heaven... by EmbracedByDvorovoi
...The third take on this (which is formerly this...) made for this contest. (EDIT: Didn't know fanart doesn't count; but at least Razoff looks nicer now.)

The idea behind it? The summer in 2010 was TERRIBLY hot at our place - it even caused smog in the capital, but small towns like mine didn't feel better either. Almost every night, I wished it would rain, as it was impossible to sleep even with a fan on its highest speed.

So, at one of those days I thought of Razoff saving himself from the heat like this. When it's THAT hot outside, sleeping in a mansion with many fireplaces would be a real curse. Especially when you are, in fact, more a water being with quickly drying skin. And there's no better remedy than a plain wet towel and a prayer to Polokus in hope that he'll finally send the blessed coolness onto the sleeping Glade.

In both previous versions he had a glowing halo over his belly; here I replaced it with a glow all over.

Acrylics on watercolor paper.

Miniaturka odruchowo skojarzyła mi się z Alicją w Krainie Czarów, aww. I w pierwszej chwili nie rozpoznałam Razoffa, tak udatnie wtopił się w tło. :XD: Piękne, genialne wykonanie! W życiu nie powiedziałabym, że to traditional, gdyby mnie kto nie uświadomił ;__; Pogratulować!

I love the cool colors and glowing effects in this piece!

I've been spoiled with air conditioning. :ohnoes: Do many people in your country have it?

This pic is now officially my favourite rayman fan art on deviant art!

It looks fantastic, and it also brings me back to the times when I played the first three rayman games and would feel fascinated by the rich and well-crafted world in it.

Fanie, że Razoff wrócił do Twoich prac. Miło jest zobaczyć coś w klimatach spokojnej nocy czym ten rysunek wręcz kipi.

Godness. I already thought the first one was already beautiful, but here this is even more gorgeous! The colours... Damn, those colours! It gives such a warm feeling! X3

Good luck for the contest! =D

See, white paint can make wonders. :) I was afraid to use it at first (because didn't know that acrylics are harder to mess up than watercolors)...

I hope so! And even if I won't win... at least I tried. Revamping things is already fun on its own.

I also did a "draw this again" meme quite recently, but I won't participate. ^w^' By having a look at the entries, my art has got no chances. 'XD
But I think you can have a chance. Your painting skills are awesome! =D

I've re-read the comments and whoa, fanart doesn't count. Well... :shrug:
Not that big of a loss, I wanted to re-paint him anyway.

OK, so after all it wasn't a bad idea to don't submit my "draw this again".
I'm surprised, considering that most of the entries were fanarts... oo'

Oh well. After all a drawing is never made for nothing. :3 At least you could paint him again, in a better way! ♫

Yeah, I checked the comments after the deadline. Many people asked "does fanart count?", to which one of the judges replied "no" - or else it'd be a profit from third party creations. :confused:
Well, no regrets. If anything, I can buy a premium by myself :) Maybe Ubisoft will open a contest like it did for RO release and then I'll throw them a Raz-bomb. :XD:
