Just admit like me by Saimain Just admit like me by Saimain
", you're lyin' on the battlefield with an arrow for a decoration, and everybody homes in on it like a beacon and they start pryin' it out WHILE you're conscious, and you're thinkin' "Ahh! Don't trouble yourselves, just leave it in there for goodness' sake! I got it first, it's mine! Don't touch it! I can use it to hang stuff on and--aahh!" And then when you finally faint from all the pain, they shake you and shout your name and try to wake you up, and you're thinkin' "Heeeeeeell no, I ain't comin' back to that! Why d'you think I fainted in the first place?!" Then they get all frantic-like and such and start hollerin' "Don't die on me, man!" and you're thinkin' "The only one gonna die here is you if you don't quit shaking me!""

-Jason, on getting shot.

Hee, Jason is one of my favorite characters, and I somehow haven't drawn him since 2003. o_O; I discovered this criminal fact when putting together his art-progress chart, and had to remedy it immediately. Painting this took far too long, but it was very good anatomy practice, hee. The words "Mine- Leave it be!" are etched in the wood of his crossbow, if you're wondering what the letters are. XD The background is actually from another pencil piece I was working on, but never finished.

"Heeelll no!"
Too funny.
This is brilliant and wonderfully done. I feel absolutely humbled looking at this.
Great character,by the sounds of it. And a cheeky one at that! Although he's rather practical too. I mean, yes an arrow would be a great picture hanger once it's cleaned up and all...

ROFL! That excerpt along with this fantastic piece, makes it one of my top-most favorite deviations by you... XD
Mattkemis Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2010  Student General Artist
don't you think the dimple over his lip is a bit deep, or, at least a little too pronounced? it keeps reminding me of a mustache... *shrugs*
Diseux Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2009
I just decided this character is the epitome of awesomeness. 'Nuff said.
