WORLD OF HENAULT

Preface:
I need an incredible portfolio (Which concerns this thread). I realized after awhile that I needed and still need artworks to create, to be able to form my portfolio... I found a simple answer to that problem: create badass concepts of my own, to show my real skills and creativity since I truly want to become the concept artist I want to become.
I've been thinking about it, and I decided to create a fantasy world on my own, first: to have drawings (concepts), to be able to make the portfolio that will truly show who I am. Second: to be able to push myself creatively and technically. Therefore, I present you, the World of Henault! This project started this winter's holidays, and I've been working on it since than... now things involved, instead of simply creating concepts for an un-existing world. I decided to actually create that world entirely as a personal project, so I could be able to use it as an other medium later on, rather make a game/books/movies out of it, will see where it will lead me.


Introduction:
Since the project is bran new, there's not much work that have been done on it, mostly scattered pages of notes and pages full of sketches, so don't worry if this is quite confusing for now, I'll fix things up, as I go along with the new work, I might completely change what have been written in the way and change information here and there, if I do so, don't be confused. Beside, you should know that 100% of this world have been created by myself (with help from a few friends for a few concepts), my inspiration comes from many things but I've never copied anything from something that I saw, so if there's a concept that looks quite like something you've seen, than it's a coincidence. I invite you to comment/critic/correct my work but if you do, please do so via P.M, also I don't want to hear ANYTHING about concepts you've made... Thank you!

A unique and hided place on Henault, Sal is one of the rarest place not known by mans due to his position, Sal is a strange shaped giant valley that was created by unknown reason, because Sal is a Land withing a land.

Hrua
Typography of the word = Means ''We'' in Hrua Language
humanoid_concept_2_by_mr_goblin-d3axoo9.png
We have a few information about these mystical people, the Hrua have rarely been met by humans due to their situation, although it did happened. The Hrua are the only known intelligent beings of Sal, living on the top of the massive rock pillars. The Hrua managed to settle their villages there for a simple reason, they are out of reached of the creatures of the lower Jungle. Each pillars are about 500 meters high to a kilometre high and can only be reached by climbing or by flying. The Hrua are survivors, they have learned by themselves how to survive to the danger of the forest that lays beneath them by following their own traditions in martial art training and hunting. It is quite impossible to understand the Hrua mentality since it is too different from the human thinking, they are over conditioned warriors that knows only their own way of living and don't accept any other ways due to their mentality.

Size =
Baby: 1-2 feet long
Teen: ~5 feet long
Adult: 7-8 feet long
Type = Mammal
Numbers of Babies it can has = 1 at the time
Nutrition = Meat, fruits, roots, flower, etc
Longevity = 100-125 years

Special qualities
The Hrua are incredible warriors that knows no limit, they have incredible speed, incredible strength and incredible dexterity, they have their own martial art unknown by man. With their four arms, no human know their true strength in combat, since they are trained to only release the necessary strength for each blow against the enemy. With their four arms, and their speed, they can immobilize who ever they want if they want to. (But since the Hrua are pacifist they never use their strength for un-justified reasons.)

Habitat
The Hrua lives on top of the high rock pillars that lays in Sal, in their circular village with their houses that looks like strange caterpillars. They live there for two reasons, the height that provides them a safe resting environment, since it's out of reached of the predators of the bottom; and the presence of a rare flower called the Galla, a flower with incredible alchemist capacity that is thought to be a gift from the gods for the Hruas.

Life Psychology
The psychology of the Hrua is quite complicated to understand for humans, because they have a different moral conception than us. Just like monks, they will try everyday to become the purest they can, which is for them: remove all the unnecessary harming of the world. They will do what ever it takes to stop things from harming each other. It might sound simple said that way but it doesn't explain at all the conception of the Hrua. There's a few events that shocked humans once, here's just an exemple: a man was tickling his wife in front of a Hrua, and the Hrua knocked down the man because he was ''harming'' the lady. Hrua have a complete diffrent conception than humans about alot of things, just like death. For humans, when someone dies, you need to make a proper ritual as a respect of that person and her body, this is a true misconception of the Hruas. In opposite, if a Hrua dies, the Hrua will simply let the body there and walk away; They would answer you: this is not the Hrua they knew, it's simply an empty jar.

The Number 3
As said before, the Hrua cherish the Galla, the ''secrets of the gods'', they based their whole society on the number of tree, based about that flower. For the Hruas, since the moment they are born, they follow a strict and complicated structure of life based upon the traditions of their ancestors following the way of the Galla. Since the Hrua are born they are raised in a number of 3, and they will spent the rest of their life with their team. Every single Hrua in the team have a special field of expertise that will be greatly appreciated and used for the rest of the team. In number of tree, they train every single day of their life to become the strongest they can. In tree, they will learn how to protect themselves in a 360 degree radius, in tree they will learn how to hunt the dangerous creatures of the jungle, in tree they will learn how to climb the rock pillars without tiring themselves.

Diablo has something very similar to your Hibass House. The difference is that in Diablo swarms come out of it :p :D
Never mind that, I really like what your doing here and It's great stuff, keep it up. Respect!

oh, you mean those wierd breathing organ thingy that looks like some weird Zerg Building but desaturated? o_O

never thought of it, but yeah, the ''sphere'' IS ZOMG LOOKS DAH SAME! D: (yes I'm kiding) :D


but yeah, enough trolling, I believe you are right at some extend, but this concept definitely came up after I watched on TV a Cuba publicity with coconut drinks XD
 
you should also try monsters that looks like vehicles or something, you know from elder scrolls? :)

If you mean tameable beasts that can be mounted, than yes! I'm definetly going to include that in my World, just like the Equa'losk, that are uses as mounts for the Mok'notöhrs.

anyway, added a first WIP of the Hruas and a first Plant of Sal called the Galla..enjoy and feel free to comment!

Not sure about that last part, do you even have humans in your world?

Yes I will do have humans in my fantasy world, not sure yet about their ''look'' but I will...

I might do something in the kind of Diablo, so Humans in a fantasy world, but there will be different human race, etc.

Thanks for the grammar fix by the way :D

Anyway, what would you guys like to see me update next?

More beast? More Flora stuff?

More drawings?

More regions?

More information about the races?

etc,etc,etc

I'd like to see a map and some *dragons!* :D
Would love to see you do dragons, but remember to post a without PS version. :)

Negative I won't include a map before I have significant development of my world, which might take a while.

Beside, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but DRAGONS won't exist in my Fantasy world, there might be some flying lizard-like creatures, but they will surely not be named ''Dragon'' and they will surely not breath fire, because it's just illogical that a mouth and internal organs can 1 produce fire (isn't that impossible) but that can also survive to a incredibly high temperature without melting (Impossible) so yeah...

but don't worry, you will see highly exotic creatures that will make your drool :D:goblin_good_job:

Concerning the Mok'notohrs = information will come soon about them.
Concerning the ''Giants of the Mountains'' = I might after-all not include them in my fantasy world, but that is no sure yet, I just find an over proportioned creature abit too RPG dumb. Like Females with plate breast armour.

wow, this is amazing! *¬*
maybe, when you develop enough of this world, would you mind if I map a RPG wc3 map based on it?
the concepts are wonderful, and would be really nice to give them live in a playable world! ^^,
Obviously, I can make it all by myself with your agreement, but if you want you can join the fun and make some textures or whatever you want to do :D

"Henault" seems too french to be part of a fantasy world IMO try changing the name to something more "fluent".
Otherwise it's good that you kept a part of realism in it.

I got a concept about different races living in totally different regions (aka lava/water etc...) and who adapted to their respective environments via evolution due to a progressive transformation of their former ecosystem. This would be caused by a global cataclysm that happened millenniums before the current world.

And i agree with oziris that a map would be great, if not a global map, a separate map of each current region.
 
Eeerrrmmm, okay but no, I'm definitely keeping that name, and concerning the world map, I cant make one right now, because if I did that before the race/beast concepts, I would impose myself with "creative issues" I would have to create beast that works with the region, blocking myself from creating more unique concepts. That's why I will come up with beast concepts as I come up with region concept... And hopefully, at the end, I will put everything together! :D

This is a great fantasy your doing dude, i am very interested to see more. Got a suggestion.. why not make some industrially-inclined races or some spiritual ones? Like dwarven and elven counterparts. But your originality is really commendable.

I'm making some lore too, just too intimidated to post it XD
