JUN2 by HOON JUN2 by HOON
second illustrations/ Graphic novel cover done for JUN project.

the background space on left meant for wrap around cover.
this image is cropped for this presentation ^^

the center piece of this painting is most certainly Kingo, the thief boy holding up a holy calligraphy (부적, 符籍, a talisman or an amulet) to repel the creeping demon ninja. facial expression captured on the boy is what makes me enjoy what i do.

JUN first of its series: [link]

Michael Ojeda, HOON, Reigning pictures, mess studio

That face is what makes you enjoy what you do? It's awful... just awful. It is so two dimensional. I couldn't draw it but considering your level as an artist I wold not be proud of that face.

this particular one reminds me of an excerpt from The Forgotten Realms Series. the warrior looks a lot like Drizzt except the one depicted in this picture is too large and muscular to be him. great job. it caught my eye

Very nice. I would never be able to critique this in a sense that would actually help the image technically.

My only reservation that I have is that the warrior in white is quite bloodied and tattered, but has no assailants injured and/or dead in the area around her. Other than that amazing work :nod:

she may have had to fight to get where she is now, and to the right of the picture would be a stretch of dead, laid to rest.

as a standalone picture, the composition could be better. but then! I read that it wraps round. So i just looked at the right half, and it works. Well done!

Howdy HOON, I was trying to find our earlier commentary, with the "Dark and Brooding" comment so I could reply on that section... but seems this piece has been overwhelmed with comments. Just wanted to let you know that even though it seems your work doesn't require features for folks to be able to find it, I've featured it in my journal anyway seeing as how it's one of the best pieces I've seen recently. Keep rockin man :horns:

As a side note, or /trivia/ if you like, ninjas never actually wore black outfits.

There's somethign about the way the shredded robes fall ont he upper right arm of the female character which makes her arm look short off her shoulder. I also believe the grip on both swords could be firmer ...

Otherwise it's a stunning image.
