With the new Afro Samurai Resurrection out, I thought well since everyone loves the original I'd go and revamp it; since with the original I feel it has alot of glaring flaws and it was only my 3rd ever digital painting.
Requested by I've changed the title of the project from "Chilling in A-stan" to something cooler.
AFO Wolfpack (US Army), AFO Neptune (US Navy), 1t Battallion 75th Ranger Rengiment and the Afghan National Army (ANA). All posing ala Modern Warfare 2.
This is basically a Medal of Honor (2010) fanart. Or so I tried to do.
In the HIGHLY likely scenario no one knows who is who in this pic (Because of my still low capacity at replicating original non-manga faces): From Left to Right And Up Down: Panther, Deuce, Mother, Vodoo, Preacher, ANA Soldier #1, ANA Soldier #2, Vegas, Dusty, Sgt. Patterson, Spc. Hernandez, Tsgt. Ybarra, Spc. Dante Adams.
MoH2010 players will notice the absence of Rabbit. This is because the reference I printed didn't include Rabbit's name and I only knew about the existence of this character when I was far too advanced into this project. My apologies. I'm also sorry that the faces of the characters aren't 100% accurate. I had to improvise a little bit.
The reference pictures I used helped a lot but did no quite helped me portray the characters as they should have. It wasn't a problem of the pictures but it was more a problem of the printing quality.
I've made a number of mistakes in this project. The most noticeable are the slighty different and contradictarory sizes of the weaponry. Hernandez pose went to sh*t. Honestly it looked far better in the sketch but when I draw it, it turned out pretty bad.
I hope you can forgive me for that And also for the over three months delay on this. But no worries because I'm finally back into drawing
Aramis is an actor/model. This career choice satisfies my need to constantly create new characters and side stories.
In one of his movies he plays the role of Ronnie, a quirky freelance assassin.
Ronnie is mellow, doesn't talk much, likes wearing nail polish (black or dark blue).
Ronnie carries out his assassinations with the skill and panache of a man on drugs (even when he's not on drugs).
That's some incredible skill and panache. Accordingly, his services are very expensive.
Ronnie uses two handguns and a knife in battle. Whatever he's not using, he holds in his mouth (usually it's the knife, as guns tend to make his jaw ache after a while).
He often lights a cigarette without realizing he already has one in his mouth, then he'll just smoke both of them so they won't go to waste (like he's doing right now).
He does not appreciate people pointing out that he has an oral fixation.
As for the actual plot. Ronnie fails to kill a man on his hit list. Ronnie's pride won't stand for it. Ronnie tracks man down and they have several spectacular battles across the nation. Eventually the sexual tension gets out of hand and they fall in love have babies the end.
This movie is full of innuendos.
Aramis doesn't like being the victim of homo innuendos, but his face makes it difficult for him to get normal roles.
