Vilu Dasker Concept Art by Kelaiah Vilu Dasker Concept Art by Kelaiah
I am well aware that I'm a bit ahead of myself here, but I figured, what they hey?

A long time ago I read a fanfic depicting Badrang the Tyrant and Vilu Daskar as brothers, which I thought was an interesting take on them, considering the many similarilities between them.

Then one day I wondered if Nelvana had gone on to do "Legend of Luke", how would Vilu look? And would he look like how they designed Badrang? So I decided to draw him myself to see how it'd look.

Just for the record, I'm well aware that some people don't like how Badrang was animated in the TV series, but I do. I think they way how he looked was epic. :D

So anyway, yeah, I guess that's all for me to say right now. Hope you all enjoy, and God bless. :)

Oh yeah, one more thing! I do not own Vilu Daskar (property of Brian Jacques) or technically how he looks, as Nelvana originally created Badrang's look. That is all. ;)

He's so CUUUUUTE! Misaki Kamiigusa (Jin Fangirling) [V1] 

And he also looks like the main villain of my Redwall style novel Tanzanite. :D

I never understood why Nevada made the stouts look like wolves in the TV series. I guess that in real life, stoats and ferrets look the same so they wanted originality.

:giggle: Its "Nelvana", though technically they only made one stoat (Badrang) look like a wolf. My guess is they wanted to make him look totally intimidating, and I think they did a good job. :)

This is really cool and i like how you took the stoat look from the tv series and used it on Daskar Who is one of my favorite villains from the redwall series :) . I did my own picture of Cluny from the tv series and now im working on pictures of the rat shadow and a drawing of Daskar based on his original drawing from the cover of the book right now. I also wish they had kept going with the series after Martin the warrior cause it would have been so awesome and this could totally be Daskar's look for it.

With that helm on a middle east country comes to mind for some reason.

LOL, very nicely done! Yeah, whenever I pictured Daskar, I always kinda pictured him to be similar to Badrang, but more elegant looking, in a kind of Middle-Eastern way, if you know what I mean. I think it's the scarfed-helmet and bone scimitar that does it.

Yay, thanks! :D Heh heh, yeah, Badrang is the more rugged of the two whereas Vilu is the elegant one. Yeah, the scarf/helmet/bone-scimitar does it. :)

Badrang and Vilu Daskar may have been... brothers? :O
Good Lord! I never thought of that idea! That actually seems plausible!
Both alive in the same timeline - both stoats - both corsairs in their careers - both total a**holes! It fits! :XD:

Must admit, he looks pretty cool and epic like this and in this style! :thumbsup::D

Now that I think of it, if the fic has Vilu and Badrang dying on the same day,then that means that Luke(Martin's father) and Laterose(Martin's girlfriend) also died on the same day.

As for my story, I think that I should post it on Deviantart, once I can remember how it went. Nothing(besides school work)is stopping me from being able to do so!

Vilu: Mama, when will I be able to play with my baby brother Badrang?
Mama Stoat: I don't know, Vilu, you must be pantient.

Teehee. Can you find the story on Deviantart? I really want to read it now!

I looked for it, but couldn't find it. Guess it got deleted, sorry. :(

But thanks, and you know what? That little scene you just described, that actually did happen in the fic.

I remember the story went that Vilu and Badrang's father was like them, and there was also Clogg's father in there too.

Clogg also had a sister who was Vilu's age.

I can't quite remember, but I think during a storm Vilu and Mavannah (Clogg's sister) are washed ashore, and are taken into the care of an old weasel hag. Vilu and Mavannah grow up and get married, but one day Mavannah is slaughtered, and Vilu becomes a corsair.

And the fic had it so that Vilu and Badrang died on the exact same day. ^^

Good picture! I too have always imagined Vilu and Badrang being brothers...with Vilu being the older brother, and Badrang being the younger one.

:iconkelaiah:
Kelaiah Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2010
Yep, naturally. :D The fic that featured them as brothers had Vilu as the older one; there was this one cute scene where a very young Vilu was asking his mother when his baby brother would be big enough to play with him. :XD:

Wow! I never thought about it much before, but Badrang and Vilu really could be related.

Nice picture too, I assume you based his clothes on his picture in Redwall: Friend and Foe...?

Cool, I like the hat. It looks vaguely Mongolian, I know I've seen the kind before, I just don't know the name.

Just an fyi, you spelled Daskar wrong in the title :ninja:

I could never understand people disliking Badrang's TV show looks! He does have stoatish qualities... the long neck, the black tailtip... sure, he does not look 100% stoat nor mustelid, but he still is the most beautiful and cool stoat ever. :)

*cough* Now I have to admit I don't know anything about Vilu Daskar, though I heard about people drawing a connection between him and Badrang. You did a nice job with him, and forgive my long rambling D:
Reply
:iconkelaiah:
Kelaiah Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2010
Yep, he is. :D

Heh heh, Vilu Daskar is the stoat who is responsible for the murder of Martin the Warrior's mother. Martin's father, Luke, went with a small crew to hunt Vilu down so innocent woodlanders wouldn't have to fear for their lives anymore.

Vilu Daskar was the owner of the biggest slave vessel ever, it was... I forget how many stories it was, but it was like four or five levels, all filled with oarslaves. The ship, known as the Goreleech, was painted red and was most feared out of all corsair ships.

Welp, that's all I'll tell you for now. ;)

Thank you, and your rambling wasn't long at all! :)

Yeah. I always saw him all slim and slender. Like the sneaky, smart ass, wise guy he was. Also. The split open tunic? ..... No. He was too fancy acting for that. Although he did not dress in silk (Other than the white scarf thing on his head) i believed he did at least dress clean and proper compared to the mercenaries, thieves, murderers and scum on his ship. xD LOL!

Actually, that's how his tunic was drawn in the "Redwall Friend and Foe" book which is what I based this pic on. :) And in a way, he still is dressed clean and proper, I mean his tunic's not stained or ripped or anything. He's just showing of his chest muscles - not that we can see any muscles. ^^ ;) :XD: Heh, but I do get what you're saying, though. When I first drew this I thought it looked a bit odd.

Cool! I always pictured Vilu Daskar as being thinner, but this is a nice drawing. Pretty helmet :)

Thank you! :D Yes, I suppose I pictured him being a little bit more slender, but meh, I suppose its possible he was a bit bigger than some.

Heh, and thanks, I was afraid the helmet would look weird. :)
