I drew thisages ago, and I knew it was ridiculously poorly drawn even back then, but I posted it anyway. Well, on the 4th of July, I was watching 1776 again, and I figured, what better day to try again?
Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, before Independence and the Constitution, liked each other fine, but throughout their entire political careers they hated each other's guts and were constantly at each other's throats. And then apparently, once they retired, they didn't mind each other anymore. They died on the same day within a few hours of each other (the 4th of July, ironically enough.)
Historical figures are historical. However, the color schemes are loosely based on 1776.
Test for marve!!l, haha kidding. Soon though after the comicon I'm hopin for some art jobs
this is how spiderman 3 should have ended, this was a more in depth piece where I concentrated more on the background then the character itself. I wanted him to be in an environment that is feasable. THe speed painting I have been doing has helped alot and the brush pack I had makes doing buildings pretty easy. I did use some stock photos of the cop cars however those were a last minute addition. Everything else however is totally hand done.
Can you guess who's excited that Black Bullet has finally started its anime run? It was a manga/light novel I started reading in early 2012 based on the recommendation from a friend and quickly became one of my favorite reads ever, and I'm not one to read much manga. I've been looking forward to the first episode since the first previews started to air back in December.
Synopsis: In the year 2021, mankind was defeated by Gastrea, a parasitical virus, and is forced to live within a wall made of Varanium Monoliths, a metal that is able to subdue Gastrea. Soon, the "Cursed Children", children born with the Gastrea virus who are able to control it—which gives them superhuman abilities—were discovered. Due to the Gastrea virus' intervention, the Cursed Children could only be female. Civil Securities are formed to specialize in fighting against Gastrea, operating with the pair of an Initiator, who are cursed children, and a Promoter, serving to lead the cursed children.
It's a rather vague overview but it tells you the jist of what you'd need to know to jump in and watch the anime or read it and not have anything spoiled. The story follows promoter (and main character) Rentaro Satomi (16) and initiator, cursed child, Enju Aihara (10) who fight to protect the protected Tokyo area from an outbreak and subsequent pandemic of the Gastrea Virus. The latter character is completely ridiculous and definitely adds a much needed light-hearted element to the story for balance.
The character above is the story's primary antagonist, Kagetane Hiruko, one of my favorite villains of all time, insanely warped and incredibly powerful, you get a glimpse of him in the first episode, and he makes quite the entrance.
There is an Attack on Titan-y (2009) feel to the show, but Attack on Titan as a manga was never well received until its anime began its run, while Black Bullet (2011) has been a highly regarded media for some time now, which is probably one reason why it made it from paper to syndication in a much shorter time span, I love both shows but if it lives up to the light novel series, Black Bullet will blow Attack on Titan away, especially once it really gets rolling!
Solly, Solly, Solly. I promise I have a Spy and a Pyro on the way. Soldier, however, will not be denied. You know how pushy he can be.
I've pretty much come to accept that I can't quite get the TF2 style, but I think they work pretty well in my own. As for the doodle at the bottom there, I play Medics most of the time and I usually end up piggy-backing any Soldiers in the general vicinity.
