Cavalier, Colored by stratosmacca Cavalier, Colored by stratosmacca
Ahh... Amazing what a little color will do, eh?

This was colored by the ultra-talented André Swanepoel, who surprised me on the He-Man.org forums by coloring the black and white drawing of V I'd posted there (and here!). Quite a nice surprise! :D

I don't know where to start - that is so awesome. I love the colors that you chose. Virtual High Five for the bright green background. Very bold. I love it.

The artest doesn't know the actual physical makeup of a Rapier.

The general shape. A rapier is tinner then that, rarely exceeding an inch at it's thickest point. It's meant to slide in between the ribs (when V cuts off the statue's head, and most of his movements, it's actually wrong--pure Hollywood stuff) so it should be long and thin. About the length from the tip of your fingers to your opposite shoulder (if I can remember the exact sizing).

That sword is somewhat of a cross between a rapier and a Hand-and-a-Half, or Bastard sword.

The color and over all picture is actually quite lovely (save, perhaps, the shin on the mask covers some detail) and I enjoy it very much. But I felt I had to point out the sword fact, however.

Thanks for also pointing out what you liked about the piece, rather than only focusing on its flaws ;)

^^ S'alright. I'm a writer, and I like it when people do that rather then focusing on just one aspect--good or bad. And I understand about the sword detail. Maybe it was from a weird angle, or something?

On further note of compliment (I thought of this later, after the previous comment), I really enjoy how you have V's clothing. Traditional, yet modern.

I did use photos of a sword (which I assumed was close to to what V was using in the film) as reference when I drew this piece, but probably exaggerated some elements as I went.

What can I say? I'm not perfect :)

A bit late now, I guess, since I have no plans to revisit any of my V art. But thanks for letting me know.

Yay! I like this costume for V in the movie. I would probably choose to wear this costume if I was going to cosplay him.
Nice coloring job! :)

Yep! It's V from the film. I like the comic version as well, but I'm still pretty enamored with the way Hugo Weaving brought him to life on the bigscreen, so (at least for now) all of the V drawings I've done have been based on the film version :)
