I experimented with a few backgrounds on this picture but none of them looked that good.
In the end I opted for this, I know it's straightforward but I think it makes him look better. It looked good with a black background as well, but he would of sunk-in to it a lot more with his skin colour being the same as the background.
Winding down the long weekend with a bit of fanart. Remember that old show Ben 10 that used to be on Cartoon Network? No, not the 'Alien Force' or 'Ultimate Alien' nonsense, I mean the good ol' original, back when the show was fresh and new and original.. I loved the show back when Ben was a mischievous kid, before he grew up and got really, really boring. Ah well I'm rambling. XLR8 was always my favorite of his alien heroes. Speedy and slithery, and with awesome legs, and I've been putting off drawing him for years!
Another pic that I drew a long time ago and just colored today Since I drew a profile of Ditto I figured I'd draw one of XLR8-who is my 2nd fav alien of the old Ben 10 series ~~ *Kineceleran from Kinet *Voiced by Jim Ward(Diamondhead and Wildvine as well) *Omnitrix on chest *Thick, black mouth with sharp teeth *Visor lowers to protect face when running *Helmet for extra speed *large, green eyes w/ cheetah-like tear streaks *Bladed elbows for added aerodynamics *Speed streak(bad coloring on that part DP) *Long, skinny body resembles a velociraptor *Long tail for balance that can also be used to knock out enemies. Has speed stripes in black/blue pattern *Has claws that can slice through almost anything that is open while not running and closed while running *Has kangaroo-like legs *Fast reflexes for powerful kicks *Wheeled feet=faster movement.Can go on ice,mud,and water *Has super speed and the ability to go into the mythical Speed Zone where time freezes.
