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.
"There was smoke. A lot of it. One couldn't see a thing. Suddenly, a figure emerges with open arms as if welcoming someone. The man makes an evil looking grin towards the audience and proclaims: I'M BACK!"
How's that for a self-introduction after more than 6 bloody months without posting sh*t?
Yup, the Panzer is back and ready to roll all over you. *Plays Ghost Division by Sabaton*
Anyway, here's the final project I had to do for the comic/drawing classes. We basically had to write a small story and make two comic pages applying the stuff we learned throughout the year. I got a "10 Felicitado" for this which is like 110% or an "A+" in US grading standars.
As you can see, I went with a story about the British invading Buenos Aires for a third time. I really didn't bother thinking in a complex backstory. Just made something that would be shocking and cool visually. No politics involved (I swear). But the brits did invade Buenos Aires twice (Only to be repelled away with the help of some cooking oil). So they could totally go for it again. (Just kidding, I love you brits.)
For those that don't know River Plate and Boca Juniors are two Argentine football teams and they're ht emost popular ones in the country. When both face each other, it's called the "Superclasic" and it's a pretty big event regarding of what it's at stake for that match.
The color work is hand made using color pencils. I got a nice selection so I applied some pretty fitting colors.
The shadows were made along aside the inking process though I also pressed harder on the colors to generate a more gradient like effect to simulate light. Though it did not go as good as I thought it would be.
Anyway, I'm pretty happy with this even if it doesn't really match the standars of my previous works here in DA. It's also my first time trying to work on a proper comic page so excuse the relative simpleness of it. I'm not a pro (Yet).
Ok, I still got some drawings I need to finish for next Friday in order to fully pass the course so for this week I'm all booked up. But when December arrives, I should be able to get back to work with my own stuff. I got a few projects left hanging from a pretty good while ago. I'll see if I can get to work on it. But I will also be taking comissions so here's the heads up. Don't worry, my coloring style will be digital as normal and not like this.
I will post later on a picture showing the different stages of this project. They're basically the inked versions, the versions with shadows and the final colored pages to see how it evolved. I don't rule out making a digital colored version of this sometime in the future but right now it's not really a priority.
Well, I hope you like it, I busted my ass for this.
More prints for Nagu-con! At this rate I might be able to finish them all in time TT u TT
Truth be told, I've never actually played a Battlefield game before. I just think that between that and Modern Warfare Battlefield has the more... um... iconic cover art (I dunno lol >_>)
This print will be available at Nagu-Con, August 10th through the 12th. Come to our table in the artist alley and say hi if you get a chance~!
:EDIT: So when I made prints of this for con, it turned out really dark. I mean, REALLY dark. The thing is, it looks fine on my computer monitor, but I'm thinkin' maybe it doesn't on everyone else's... If anyone feels like the drawing is a little too dark, please feel free to let me know >~>
NOOOOOO THE EEL VIRUS GOT ME TOO >.< I have no idea why it got so popular but I found it rather funny to see so many people doing this so I just felt like doing one too XD And here it is! Girly boys for the wiiiin XD I named him Yves, by the way he doesn't have always his eyes closed. his eye color is like the bg. Maybe if I've got time (what I probably won't -.- ) I will do a full body drawing of him and also make another one, but a girl next time... I'm drawing too much guys lately XD Ugh... gotta go now do my homework and learn for exams T.T
