'Come on! See if you can make me bleed by the end of this!'
Many ages ago, Tungen found a scared pool with waters that preventing his body from aging, but after living for many decades watching everyone around him grow older, his mind snapped and he began to wonder the world in search of a battle that would finally end his life. With his body eternally growing stronger without the decay of age to limit him, Tungen has to set his own limits by using a special axe he calls 'Atlas Sky' which can kill a man with one blow, but is extremly difficult to weild. Is there a single warrior on this earth that can slay this fearsome maniac?

I know I said these were going to be colour, but my time is being eaten up by so many other things lately so I'm going ot have to post these sketches as they are for the moment and leave it at that. When I first saw these key words, the image that came to mind was a muscle bound warrior with a thick red beard and an axe on his shoulder...then I realised that image was just a taller version of Master_42 from Cyber Realm, and I wanted to move away from that.
Also after getting three request with the word 'crazy', I didn't want to make him a straight madman, so I decided to mix it with the scar idea and make him a battle maniac who didn't care how many times he got hit as long as he won the battle.
Also to avoid being obvious I decided to go with the idea that the word 'huge' didn't have to refer to his size, and then I came up with the concept of 'an axe equivalent of a Buster Sword from Final Fantasy 7' and went with that. Part thinks the axe could have been little fanicer, but apart from that, I'm happy with Tungen as he is for now.

On a side note, the other two request are on their way; Doc's needs to be inked in and Goryu's keeps going through several design changes (it's a tough challenge to say the least), so look forward to them soon.

That'd be a big axe.
