"It was in this moment that Genji Ryu's torso were sliced apart, as well as his hand... Trying to counter the demon, which by such an unfathomable speed, managed to acquire the high ground... And kill the legendary Samurai..."

This is my entry for :icondinmoney:'s "Kill Genji" contest.
I find Genji to be a quite interesting character and I decided to create a completely new OC to finish him... Siros...
An incarnation of darkness, an ancient evil, forged into this dark metal body, a living armor, a demon with a core of such fiery evil it burns trough all!

I didn't get the time to complete what I originally intended to.. so that might explain the somewhat illogical scene.

But anyway, Siros is added to the lines of murderers claiming the price for Genji's head! =D

Any opinions?

I'd love to use this image as the "banner" for a discussion forum about martial arts... for our more controversial and inflammatory discussions!  Would that be okay with you?  (It's a non-commercial group on Facebook.)

One of the most artful examples of stylized violence I have ever seen in a piece of still art. You, sir, deserve a medal.

is this an interpretation from the book or is it from an anime(this version of genji)?

Btw this looks amazing, for lack of better words :]

Thanks, it's based on :icondinmoney:'s own illustrations of Genji.

oh ok yeah, lol i actually just looked at his page and figured that out XD. Nonetheless, superb job! You don't by any chance have any video tutorials or just a live demonstration of you working do you?

Unfortunately I don't have any tutorials or similar guides to present my techniques :(

:[ any advice perhaps? Do you usually outline before coloring, or just paint from the start? I really would like to learn how to paint without having that anime outlined feel.
