How Rtas Lost His Towel by Etoli How Rtas Lost His Towel by Etoli

The result of a very odd conversation with lots of nekkid. . . I was inspired.

A lil' sketch for our dear AtomicChocograph, who turns 19 today. :3 Happy Berfday, woman! I told you I just had to do this, and. . .well, there he is! Nekkid Rtas for you. XD We may have to tell the whole story now, you know. . .

heheehee. . .and I think I've never had so much fun drawing Eto and Icca. There's naught much funner than dancing away down the halls with towel in tow. :evillaugh:

pencil sketch + photoshop

Instead of those red things it should have been a huge exclamation point and with the startled noise from metal gear solid

That's Awesome! lol! Love Rtas' Expression!

I don't think I'd be brave enough to do that....Don't think I'm fast enough to get away from him, if he chased me. xD

Thats sooo funny! The dancing elites in the background make me LOL so hard.

Even though he doesn't have a towel he can have a makeshift loin-cloth
LordMegatron64 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2009

Poor Rtas, he just can't get a break.

Don't worry commander, i shall make the heretics pay.

This pic inspired a little scene in a fic I am writing with the Arbiter...only in this case he was talking to a female 'friend' of his when a sneaky character of mine came up and snatched it right off his waist...*evil*

Now why isn't this pic showing up in my favs? *whines*
Everything on here looks so undeniably cute! xD;;;

Must fav.
Omega-Orga Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2008
I can see it now Master Cheif trying to escape the covenant city and ducks for cover in a hallway (hot tub room) and turns around
Master Chief:The hell?!!?
R'tas: Don't ask and go beat the crap out of those two and get back my towel!
Master Chief: I have a better idea you stay there and I escape later!
R'tas:Get back here bastard!

...You've inspired my character to have a vision...and to go through with said vision. (She has a naughty friend who can inspire her to do...things...and my character's a psychic, to boot. XD)
Etoli Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2008
Do eeeeet. >D
NeoInformer Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2008   Writer
...Oh, she did. She did.

She stole every single Shipmaster's towel. Including The Arbiter's...and she even stole Xytan's.

And inhaled their scents and rubbed them against her face.

...Until a certain Shipmaster caught up with her...*winkwink*
RiahRiddle Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2008
How will he get that towel back? I highly doubt that a man of his stature *Cough* Could use that little tiny washcloth. Did they steal his floaty chair too? Oh, wait. That was the arbiter... Are you planning on putting Rtas In your next fic? (Which we are waiting patiently for?)
AeonReclaimer Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2007
Hmm...going through your looks good.

I also know :iconatomic-chocograph:

The question is, Etoli...Is it you and and Icca in the background running for your lives?

Etoli Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2007
Oh, running with glee! >D
AeonReclaimer Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2007
Eh, I wonder:

Will Bungie ever make a side story for Halo?
Something that allows us to know a bit more about the Covenant?

OOOH! Rtas is gonna be pissed now!
Aveoxus Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2007  Professional General Artist
lol. I've been looking for a funny sangheili piece for a while, and I've found it. XD
Rtas is like,
" !.. What the!?.." turns around. "HEY!!.." looks at the miniscule towel thats left and realizes "Aw.. crap.."
That's atleast what I think he's about to do. Probably. I just noticed that the only towel he could use now that the elite's stole his large one, is smaller than his hand!! XD A great presentation to be sure. The mischevious and prolly teen elites skipping away with his towel made it just that much more hilarious. Great job, and a :+fav:
Aspide Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2007
Ha! Very funny, and incredibly well done. Excellent work.
gharia Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
And suddely, I come out from behind the corner, carying a towel, with an evil smile, and I say to my dearly beloved Rtas,
"I have a towel you can exchange for something....I want....A HUG!!!" :evillaugh: Seriously, Etoli, you make all elites uber huggable! Its an awesome thing to be able to do, cause it means I love all you stuff. I especially liked Siblings. This, if it had to recieve a rating, would be something like an 11/10! >.< But, Im pretty sure all Sangheili are supposed to be slight variations of a mottled bluish gray skin color...
Sangheili-riser Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh god, if Mre'al (Rtas' daughter in my story) saw this, she will go totally balistic.

Anyway, this is a fantastic picture, love Rtas' expression.
707MerK Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007
Haha, poor Half-Jaw, Kehahaheh.
Specter01 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007
The famous Covenant SpecOps Commander Rtas "Half-Jaw" 'Vadumee... naked. That is beyond humerous. That and those in two the background jumping with glee at the accomplishment of their dastardly deed.
I will not envy those two when Rtas catches up with them.

Hah. If only the UNSC marines knew of the antics of those "blood-thirsty" aliens.

Great art. Favorite much.

Etoli-semapi, what kind of photoshop technique did you use here...Air Brush...with blur...?
Etoli Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2007
Hard round airbrush, with some softer airbrush burning and dodging in just a few areas.

That is why you should never use communal bath-houses.

...Especially if you're a good looking alien.
