"Otacon, what can you tell me about this guy?" "Well Snake, I gotta say, he looks like a real badass. And that gun he's carrying is really effective against living things." "Please don't make game crossover references... especially to that one." "Well hey. I'm not the one staring at a character from another game universe now am I?" "Jus- Just tell me how to defeat this guy." "I don't know, Snake, Turians don't go down easily. They've got eyes like a hawk if you know what I mean." "YES I know what you mean." ...*Awkward silence*... "But yeah, a stealth approach is gonna be hard. You could always try a distraction, you know, like take your bandanna off and chuck it som-" "You know what?! I don't have time for this, I'm just gonna take the sho- *WHUNT! skuffle skuffle* GUH! ARGH!" *static* "Snake? Snake?! SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!"
Gosh this is amazing. I love the colouring of this picture, and his pose. There's something very powerful about the way he's standing and how his jacket is moving. I think I like the smoke coming off the gun the most. Kind of gives it an old time-y Western feel in a sense.
I definitely wanted the picture to have MOOD more than anything. I'm actually very happy with how it turned out.....I definitely looked at a LOT of trigun pics before drawing this, and I'm glad 'cause they're what made me think of the gun smoke. The bullet holes with the light was my idea though XD. Pretty proud of that one.
I was SO thinking Trigun too. I really enjoy the over all presentation of this piece and I am really excited to see what you do next. I mean you have such an evolution to your art and even the simplest poses have emotion in them. It's why I followed you in the first place.
it actually DOES resemble TMcF Spawn a bit......though his spawn had 1000 more tatters XD. I actually used trigun as heavy influence for this one though. As SOON as nimtai said duster jacket, my brain went "Vash" and wouldn't say anything else. Tried to make it not look like Vash's coat, but the flowy gritty feel I wanted to carry over from the anime art.
hmm. NOT rough enough to be on par, IMHO hahah. MGS artwork just has SUCH an amazing gritty feel to it......I'm flattered that you'd draw a comparison yourself, but I personally feel my style is still too cartoony lolz. So glad you like it!
Oh My God! This is Overflowing with Awesomeness and It's so fucking full of win that it explodes! And when it Dose Explode it creates it's own universe full of Awesomeness that it even makes Chuck Norris tip his hat to it before he roundhouse kick the Sun into oblivion!
Eeeeeeeee!!!!! Riiiiiiiikkkiiiii! How do you do these things *shakes you like a baby* I still wanna chop you head off Highlander-style and absorb your powers. There can only be one?! Can we make that happen sometime? Sword fight over the misty moors of Canada on a stormy night?
Nimmy's desperado daddy <3 You got the roguish vigilante look down man. The light coming in through the bullet holes in his duster ... ALL MY LOVE. The lighting is just freakin' amazing period. His expression and the general tone of the piece is so perfect for him. His handkerchief and the smoking gun .. absolutely magnifique. You pegged it, once again woman <3333
Old as hell character, and he finally has a picture worthy of him. You should use your new watermark on this lady lady, this shit is too good. TOO GOOD.
Why is it that the more you seem to like me, the more you want to give me shaken baby syndrome and cut my head off? We should have had a highlander battle today. It SNOWED. In MAY. FUCK YOU THE NORTH. Bah. This pic is one of those rare examples where the lighting worked with me quite well, and it didn't take copious amounts of time! XD. Lucky! hahahaha. I'm actually very happy with how it turned out, considering it's a sketch commission hahah Uuugh I GUESS I SHOULD watermark it. SO MUCH WORK. There. it is done. You still have the full size unwatermarked version thought right?
Because you always pummel the ones you love? Nim smash?
Dude, I wish it was still snowing here. My allergies have been kickin' my ass. ALL THE THINGS NEED TO BE FROZEN AGAIN.
Thanks for the watermark and everything else lady <3 It turned out so perfectly *gazes at it for the billionth time* And yeah man, I saved the shit out of that full-sized version the second you linked me (and I slapped it on the wallpaper of nearly everything digital that I own )
I'm not a huge fan of drapey, coaty, roby or skirty things in general on turians. The look suits them, but it's kind of hard to pull it off well; in my personal opinion that is! You have to get that flowy cloth look just right, and I think you've mastered this rather... kick-assedly!
Hats! Hats on turians, I just thought of those rather tacky old, yellow waterproof fisherman's hats on one... ah... ahhhh my mind...
