Yes I realize this picture is a little bit violent/morbid/whatever compared to my normal ones. But I had a good reason for doing it. I wanted to test out the inking tool... When I was doing my Elven Bandit picture I tired to use to use the ink tool to 'ink' my outlines. That failed miserably, it looked like it was bleeding all over my picture. So I stored that tidbit of infornmation in my memory and moved on. Later when I was trying to think of what to do next I thought, 'Hey! I'll just do a simple little picture and see if the ink tool really does 'bleed.'' Well the picture turned out far more complex than I orginially imagined and I almost think it looks better without all the blood... err red ink. Some notes about the character design: Yes, this is Cody again. There's aboslutly no reason he has horns or a tail, besides the fact that I like them. The pose was based off of my photo reference and it actually is part of some martial arts form. The costume is distictly asian for a couple reasons. A: I think it looks cool. B: I was doing some artwork for the actual project Cody is in (while closely zoomed in) and when I zoomed out the first thing that came into my mind was 'Geeze, he looks like a asian, ghetto, punk.' It seems I had made some mistakes that weren't noticable at close zoom. Well after talking to my partner in crime, Adrain Reyes it was decided that Cody is now asian. (although the ghetto part died a quick but painful death) Well I hope I've covered everything, comments please. PS. Just for the record the picture *is* colored thank you very much. PSS. I used a wacom tablet and Photoshop if you actually care.
