HB - Clockwork by rennerei HB - Clockwork by rennerei
It's been so long since I've held a pencil in my hand that I wasn't sure if I even own some. Had to search for at least 10 minutes before I found one amongst a million of ballpoint pens.

Nothing's more fun to shade than leather or metal, and Kroenen's got it all! I've been wanting to draw him for quite a while anyways.
The sketch had blood all over that piece of wall, but I erased it. I guess Mr. ninja nazi bot looks creepy enough by himself.
...woah, I've read some of the comics almost three years ago, but I saw the first movie just yesterday.

Tools: cheap printing paper, blue pencil (sketch), one 4B pencil which bravely gave it's life (now I got none left), electric eraser, opaque white, chapstick (really), chalk, a wax crayon, needles, photoshop for putting it together ( background's on a separate piece of paper.) and whatever the hell I could find.

Time: 5 hours or sth. Was waiting for the moment when it's starts to look finished, but that didn't come, so I decided to keep drawing until I get hungry. I'm hungry. So I'll upload this now and go cook something.

And: I probably got his head all wrong, too lazy to search reference, my hands are black, lighting's off, ah well.

just a little curious, what did you use the chapstick for?

Nothing wrong with this at ALL. You have enviable skill!

Germany - February 14th, 1942

He peered across from his position on top of the stone, gazing intently into the building that first caught his eye exactly two years ago. It wasn't the building he admired, so much as it's occupant.
The most beautiful girl in the village truly was a beauty: five foot nine, long, soft blonde hair, smooth tan skin, curvy body, ocean blue eyes and a face gorgeous enough to make Aphrodite herself red with envy.
The Nazi assassin stared on in awe with misty eyes as the blonde bombshell moved about her bakery, locking it up for the night. Two years ago this night he had been watching her, collecting enough courage to introduce himself. They're eyes even met once about three months ago by pure circumstance.; he shied away in embarrassment and walked away as fast as possible before she could react. Since then, because the master swordsman has been itching to try again, only one thought came to his mind:
'Time is fleeting; it's now or never.'
The gentleman assassin gracefully jumped down from his perch and strode over to her residence, panic and paranoia building in every step. He stopped dead in his tracks when he came within four feet of her front door; anxiety was immediately taking it's toll; nagging at him, urging him to turn back. He curled his black leather clad fists into balls, vowing to do no such thing. If he still had his heart, if would be beating faster than ever before. Kroenen mentally kicked himself as he finally summoned up the courage he had been storing within himself for the past two years and used it to knock.
Within seconds of knocking, he heard steps from inside, but they suddenly ceased as two locks were unlatched, causing the door to open.
Much to his delight, she recognized him from the time they briefly locked eyes as only two words left her mind.
"You again?" she half gasped in surprise. He nodded once in appreciation.
When they did, only two words entered his.
'Hello, Victoria.'
The End

My heart kinda started pounding after I read this, because that's my name.
Now I'm kinda paranoid about him showing up at my door.
Because I don't what he'll do.
I would probably hug him.

The head's just fine. I love the sense of motion in this. Like any moment he's going to pounce on an enemy. The shading is also quite wonderful as is the composition.

Kukapetal Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2011
Wow, he is absolutely stunning. So detailed, so dynamic, so really did a nice job making this picture visually impressive. I especially like how you drew the raindrops bouncing off his hat.

One of my favorite characters and you've captured him beautifully. Nice job!

I love Kroenen, he's totally epic man!
great job
keep it up :)
MissizTheNemisis Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009
Simply amazing! I'm loving the minimalist-style background, it really focuses one's eyes on the subject of the picture. Speaking of which, Kroenen looks absolutely magnificent in all artistic aspects (and pretty much accurate as far as referencing goes). You should be proud, even if it was drawn for practice. Thank you for submitting this! :)
