Currently working on an attempt to improve my character design/development skills.
Im Re-Designing Joe Dion's newest character Bleak, to start. Her first design is a Mercenary/PMC Soldier. Other design directions include Samurai/Shaolin Warrior, and a slight fantasy inspired Medieval look. Much fun. Stay Posted!
Joe Dion AKA Joey Zero or “copperthistle” (for those old school cats, or biters still jackin’ his older work). Created a boss-ass character named Gorusai. Who basically controls the power of a demon in his left arm, after it was possessed and tamed. Also he wields this badass Shaolin Spear, and Wakizashi blade.
The homie threw up a throw back piece he did back around ‘03, and i had to jump on it. The design and concept are hella sick, which is usually his MO.
He’ll be adding colors to this in the upcoming weeks/months, so stay tuned.
Did this up the other week. Guess i never posted it here.
LeSean Thomas’ Philly Tha Kidd, from his upcoming graphic novel Cannon Busters. You can check out this cat’s amazing work here and here. Honestly though, if you don’t know who LeSean is you’ve been sleepin’ quite a bit.
Partially and importantly a bit of a tribute to Ugetsu Hakua’s original version of Jo, with the badass gloves. I left out her tats too, in case anyone was wondering. Once i get my new setup going i might go back and add it in.
I want this piece to rock hard. Which is why im waiting to get my new setup before going further and finishing it. I may however add inks sometime this week or weekend. But colors just aren’t possible with my current equipment.
I wanted to add a bit of… something, to these lines. Without inks/spot blacks my lines tend to be stale, for lack of a better word. Hence the texture work and composition.
