Wow! :flame: revamp That is so BADASS, I can't even! It is kinda rare to see that level of detailing in cel style, and I am simply in awe of your skills and the amount of attention you give your characters. His posture is powerful and tight; I adore the clawed hand capturing the blaze of his powers and the line of his shoulders, where he's glaring down with the fire in his eyes—it's just so intense! I can't get over all the little shiny details on his wardrobe, all the buckles and straps and his mask. Great job!

I'm very impressed with the symmetry of the chain, too. Every link is an exact copy, but you still managed the sweeping coil of it, that sense of movement. And the references worked great because that background is perfect (wise how you always fade them out so the character becomes the focal point!) and the effects of the fire is awesome. But my favorite effect is the glint on his dagger
—that just draws my eye because it reflects the light with a neat lil' flame of its own. Love it!

thanks so much! :D

I can't paint at all, so I always color in cell shade XD   I'm afraid I must admit that the chain is just a brush with some layer effects along a path lol

It's absolutely my pleasure!

Oh, I understand that dilemma. I've tried doing digital paintings and it's tricky. I'm way more comfortable with cel colors too, and honestly, I prefer it; I'm always excited to find great artists doing quality cel art! So thank you!! And even with a brush it's still very well realized. Also, you said it's "along a path" and a light bulb went off in my head; I never thought about using that tool, and always did haphazard kinda strokes with my effect brushes. That is brilliant for patterns and symmetry OMG. Thank you for the tip! XD

No problem, long ago I admire his work, perhaps no longer remember me, it was years ago. I am happy to continue doing good work. Have a nice week.

Thank you for your answer.
