The Hills Hold Secrets by Metalks
The Hills Hold Secrets
"You never know what's out there... In this world there is no guarantee that you will ever walk back through your door."
Company of The Dead. by Metalks
Company of The Dead.
A rework of a previously done picture featuring Trance also found here.

Had a disappointing portfolio review yesterday where I was told all my black and white is uninteresting by an admissions councilor despite fitting the bill for the comic art program, as well as a few other things. So, probably wont be doing any B&W for a while. Trying to fill out pieces before the 1st.
The Forlorn - Ruon II by Metalks
The Forlorn - Ruon II
Reborn, Resurrected, Reincarnated. Choose whatever word you like. This Ruon is not the original. While she is a reincarnation of the first, she was created by mistake as the original Ruon's essence was forced away, causing the developing child to take a different path. It is debatable who is the strongest of Malaea and Tralion's children, and Ruon knows this. Being the middle child of the family, Ruon always feels the need to play catch-up with Myriad in order to "prove herself" to her parents, unable to see what she has. While Myriad is naturally gifted, Ruon must train obsessively in order to compete with her sister, always honing her skills. Viciously competitive, she does not take loss lightly in any regard, often slipping up and losing control before taking her frustrations out on her surroundings.
Inheriting the original Ruon's powers of dimensional fraying and spacial manipulation, her powers are boosted by her Tralion eye, a trait inherited from her father, allowing her to super charge her energy attacks. Like Myriad, she has the ability to enter "dream state" a trait inherited from her mother, allowing her to skew reality in her favor, appearing as twisted as her parents in the process. Yet with all that at her disposal, her self destructive nature will forever keep her behind Myriad. Almost like a curse.
The Forlorn - Johanna - Fixed by Metalks
The Forlorn - Johanna - Fixed
The reincarnation of an already otherworldly being, this sultry woman was corrupted by Malaea and given another life with a wicked disposition. Dangerous, and a flirt, Johanna is still refined. She has captured Quixotic's attention with her ways, having a tight hold on him. Johanna is quiet, sneaking, and treacherous. Her spider-themed abilities play into this, giving her high speed movement, agility, wall crawling, and superior strength. She even sports retractable spear-like limbs and toxic saliva, which can also thicken into webbing. Much like Malaea, she stalks her prey with ease, fighting as an opportunist, picking apart foes with precision. Johanna is to be kept far away should you value your life.

Edit - Fixed a few errors. Added a few shines.
Seems everyone is doing this one.

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? 

- Seven long, long years.

What does your username mean?
- It's actually a name I created way back when I first tried to play Runescape. I had a horrible moment where I made an extremely bad typo. It was originally supposed to be "Metallix." I've stuck with this typo ever since. 

3. Describe yourself in three words.
- Eager to advance.

4. Are you left or right handed?
- Right handed. Formerly ambidextrous but trained with my right hand because the world is made for righties. 

5. What was your first deviation?
- A little old portrait of a cheshre boy named Ogot.
Ogot Asyka by Metalks

6. What is your favorite type of art to create?
- Well. That's a tricky answer. Definitely cel shading. I wouldn't call my style "anime" style either because I have taken a lot of inspiration from non-anime sources. It's also not the typical anime style you see now a days. I pulled a lot of inspiration from older and simpler anime like Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon. Non-anime inspirations are like Dexter's Lab, Samurai Jack, and the original 2D Star Wars: Clone Wars series.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
- 3D rendering and animation, for sure, like the animation legend Monty Oum. Rest in Peace. 

8. What was your first favorite?
- This little gem.
Metal Sonic by SootToon

9. What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?
- Really anything fantasy related that catches my eye, or even things that give me ideas to return to later for some inspiration. I'm very wishy washy on favorites.

10. Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist?
- I can't say. I look at more of the deviations themselves than the artist, but if I must pick one, then I pick :iconprecia-t:. Her art style is beautiful and smooth. It's everything I hope to accomplish. 

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
- Another hard question, one I do not I have an answer for. I imagine it could be several different people but no one definitively. 

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
- I have met many great friends on Deviantart. I've bounced ideas off them and they've given me feedback. There are others whom I aspire to be like as well. There are some whose style I intently study.

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
- Standard mechanical pencil and printing paper, but I am getting really used to my tablet and paint tool sai. 

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
- That border between consciousness and sleep every night single night while I listen to music.

15. What is your favorite DeviantArt memory?
- As unfortunate as it is, I am unsure if I have any prominent memories, however I suppose it's always the feeling of satisfaction when you finally finish a deviation, presenting it to the world, even if you do not have many who see it.
