A birthday gift for a good friend of mine, who I happen to base this character on although most of what's in this picture is symbolism more than anything else, some things subconscious, some things definitely intentional but I'm not about to explain it all. It's frankly no one's business, and I'm too lazy anyway.

I had a lot more to say about this piece, but don't anymore. I'm just glad it's done, took me too long and yes I did rush in the end. Felt like I had to in order to make it in time. I doubt I'll change anything, even if I find things wrong with it myself (no doubt it's brimming with errors), because frankly I'm very tired of looking at it. XP

Line art: Manga Studio
Colors: Photoshop
Estimated time: Including the thorough sketch/pencil work, about a week. Give or take. (I'm slow)

>:3 I love to see anything that has to do with playing cards, and this really did make my day.

No not really, but it really is very good, and I'm glad you did it.

Keep up the good work if you feel like it.

Wow, I haven't been active on your page lately. You need more compliments than this! I absolutely love how you've colored everything. The theme is certainly strong here with the card deck look. I really like how you color too, I mean it may look simple to some people but I find it great. Everything is so smooth & blended in so well its like you used paint.

The hat looks a little silly, but he pulls it off so good. The guns are woah :heart:

Fantastic work. Well composed, is what springs to my mind for some reason. Possibly the fact that it is helps.
