Ah oui. Sipher being his finely-honed self. References: Christian Bale, Burne Hogarth, little $1 mirror that ~GhostNavi gave me. And for the record, that was an incredibly thoughtful gift. :D

That's another custom-made India ink splatter. Remainder of textures are from Mayang.

(Empty space is there because I was in need of an easily navigated desktop image. Just so y'know.)

So I was listening to "Lollipop" by Mika yesterday and began contemplating an important question...just what is Sipher's deal with lollipops, anyway?

How the F. U. C. K. is this in SCRAPS?! Sorry, I'll collect the scattered pieces of myself, but seriously, talk about UNDERstatement. *stops being vehement and assumes her normal state of tranquility*

You ought to put out a tutorial on how to do those nifty inkblots and cloud type effects that you have adorning a lot of your work. It's really all quite amazing- I just can't for the life of me figure out how you do it.

Great job, as usual.

that splatter's so, so niffty. the effects you've applied give it a coppery feel, what witht he colour and texture. there's also something about the way it curls and furls that feels in key with the tight, pink spirals adorning his top and it's interesting to see how this chaotic, unorganized shape echoes that. of course, that also adds to the sense of continuty in the image which is supported by the deep, rusy colours of his clothing.

the cloths, with their skin tight translucancy, really do let you show off your knowladge of anatomy. the muscles all took incredibly accurate, though maybe the scapula's a tad too promident. one thing that's perticulary groovy is the way that the arm drawing the sword just slopes into the weapon. the rendering of his skin is disturbingly life lik, though if i were to be a real nit pick, you possibly couls have put a little bit more pressure on the thumb og the hand gripping the sheath. the fingers seem to be tightly locked around it, howebver, that kinda works to contradict that.

the flow of the material covering his legs is pretty bitching. the folds just seem to drag across it, giving a sense of movvment wich reflacts the flow of his hair.

Gorgeous, I love all the little details and textures. The patterns on his suit are just awesome. Then, to top it all off the lollipop... its this classic image that would look completely at home on an ancient scroll, but then this little touch of non sequitur humor... brilliant! :+favlove:
