Sketch - Nighthawk in Pripyat. by GraphiteSTALKER Sketch - Nighthawk in Pripyat. by GraphiteSTALKER
Decided to celebrate the end of my academy exam session with an update on one of my S.T.A.L.K.E.R. OC's, the Mercenary girl Nighthawk. Here she is in Pripyat, with her "happy face". Not too many girls are in the Exclusion Zone, and even less - female S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s of high ranking. Yet Nighthawk is one of them, as she's a Mercenary commander. But do you think this girl likes her job? Not really, since Nighthawk has almost got raped about fifteen times in her rookie days (due to her being one of the very first girls in the Zone) and she is deprived of her ability to become a mother (radiation does magic, am I not right? :sarcasm:). Since Nighthawk cannot give life (bear a child), she is currently perfecting her ability to take lives away. So far, this girl has acquired over 990,000 roubles in contract money and about 500 confirmed kills.
The song "Pripyat" by ZAVOD was my inspiration for this sketch:

Another motherless child kiss a childless mother goodnight
Sleeps in a tomb, quiet in her empty womb
Oh, light reflect our life's in retrospect
Burn a picture in our retinas so we don't forget

When the countdown ends
We're all out of time
When the countdown ends
We're at the end of the line

Abandoned dreams, deserted homes
And it seems like life moved out and silence moving in
Mother
Father

Give the final kiss to tomorrow's youth
Sister
Brother
What will become of you?

The fear
The wait
The foretold fate

Our life expectancy unknown
Our self-inflicted apocalypse has been postponed
Mother
Father
Left the last soiled pieces of your future to you?
Sister and brother

Thanks! The song is a very good inspiration for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. related arts, and the clip even has the lyrics included, so you can imagine the whole picture as you are listening to the music.
I'm glad I finally managed to fix the issue with the stock of Nighthawk's Mossberg - it still looks a bit wonky, but it seems a bit more reasonable than in the very first drawings of her. :)

Thank you, but I still managed to screw up some proportions here and there... well, at least the ferris wheel turned out better than in my previous Pripyat drawings. I'm still struggling with drawing woman's hips decently (what can I do, the walls of my artistic taboos are going down rather slowly, but I'm working on it)
Once again, thank you for the feedback - it has been quite a while someone commented on my works and I was feeling lonely for a while. :icongladplz:
