That moment when you think you´re dying but some creep-ass plague that usually kills people renders you immortal
aka "I´m not the only one seeing all that black goo on my face, yes?"
Because guess what, the first time this sh*t happened that must´ve been freaky as hell. Surviving things humans shouldn´t is one thing, looking like the Bloody Mary doing it is another. And yes, who would´ve guessed, I get SAI back and still all I do is drawing this piece of trash. It´s 4 am and I regret nothing.

Ardyn Izunia belogs to SE
Speedpaint took about 42 min. Does that still count as speedpaint? Where do people draw the line?

Look at all that goo. And that pretty hair. Tumblr´s here: osahirao.tumblr.com/post/16046…

This looks soooo good!  I love how you did the hair!  :)  (42 minutes!?  That...that's a speedpaint, all right! XD)
Ardyn just needs some makeup remover, I'm sure it'll be fine!

Science dictates the more smudged your eyeliner the more capable you are to catch whatever the protagonist throws at you. Guess Ardyn didn´t want to take any chances XDDDDD
Thank you so much for your kind words! I´m always a bit unsure when it comes to speedpaints since everyone´s tempo greatly differs, so it´s possible that what might seem like a speedpaint to me is "usual" drawing time for others. One can never know XDDD Some artists here at DA are crazy fast with their works :).

Hm, maybe this is why he's the villain that actually got what he wanted in the end.  Perhaps he should use this knowledge to help his fellow Final Fantasy antagonists out.  "Pesky heroes keep thwarting your takeover plans?  Then ditch the Final Form(tm) transformation routine and try Ardyn's longer lasting beauty regime to give yourself the death metal look that's sure to send them fleeing in terror!  Tutorial now available on YouTube!"
You're very welcome! ^_^  You're right about the differing speedpaint times.  A lot of people pump out these beautiful sketches in just under ten minutes and I'm over here like "...How?"

Dito - it´s incredible what some artists are capable of. Which is why I really like this site. Watching the progress of other artists is incredibly inspiring and encouraging.
I think you should go into advertising-buissnes btw - looks like you´ve got quite a knack for that :D :D :D Funnily enough tho, no one ever saw Ardyn´s make up of terror, so I suppose the only ones he sent fleeing with it were some poor bastards trying to rob him at night or some kind of other NPCs who he just wanted to fuck around with. :D :D
