Commission for :iconnuriamenra1:. I don't get to draw males often but this guy's design was definitely my cup of tea.

This will very likely be my last upload of 2013.

Side story: My son was watching as I was coloring this and he asked me, "Dad, why are you making that character with the powers of Faust?" To which I replied, "I'm not the only fan of the powers of darkness out there, kid." :)

The first thing that stands out to me is the difficult pose this guy is in. I tend to admire things that I have difficulty doing myself, so immediately I want to praise the good execution of the figure.

The whole image is clean and precise, with sharp and steady lines, overall aesthetic, from the costume design to the weapons, fit very well together. That said, it kinda feels a bit too generic. Perhaps some signature motifs or a bit of contrasting bright color in small areas can give the outfit a more iconic feel?

This next part is a bit nit-picky, but I want to mention that his left leg, near the ankle, is unnaturally bent. The ankle actually does make a shape like that, but the bend here is happening above the ankle, which makes it seem like his shin is broken.

This is a great piece, and I hope the customer appreciates your hard work!

Dude this color is excellent though!  lol The background (I know it isn't) but when I glanced at it looked like where the Skelly King was making his speech randommode.deviantart.com/art/… I like the shading you did on the metal. It is the same power XD (as Faust)

Thanks Mike! Yeah, the client was really specific about everything, even the way he wanted the dark energy to look. I guess I could have chosen a different shade of purple... :D

Interesting design, I can see why it would be fun to draw. What I like about this image is how he sort of emerges from the shadow, thanks to the way you've done the shading and highlights. The purple glow adds some neat interest.

Thanks! It's usually the post-work that brings it all together, just a little touch of color balance in the end unifying all the dark purples and blues.

You raise an important point- unifying the color scheme. Something to keep in mind.

He looks really cool and awesome :thumbsup:

does he resemble a bad guy or a good guy?

Forgive me if I sound like a bother

It's no bother! According to what I was told, the character is actually a demon-hunting antihero. He was definitely fun to draw!
