Trick With A Knife by stratosmacca Trick With A Knife by stratosmacca
Another quick-ish drawing, this time of V posing with a set of knives while some mysterious memos float round. It's comic book-ish and kind of action-oriented, because I don't think I've really seen anyone draw V in an action pose (excluding David Lloyd, of course). Colors were done (very quickly) in Photoshop, so be kind...

The title of the piece comes from a song by the New Zealand band Strawpeople, who I was listening to at the time of drawing this. Hey, it beats the working title I had in my head for several days: "Action V!" ;)

lovely, this is a great piece for a great movie.

"Voilà! In View, a humble VaudeVillian Veteran, cast Vicariously as both Victim and Villain by the Vicissitudes of Fate. This Visage, no mere Veneer of Vanity, is a Vestige of the Vox populi, now Vacant, Vanished. However, this Valorous Visitation of a by-gone Vexation, stands ViVified, and has Vowed to Vanquish these Venal and Virulent Vermin Van-guarding Vice and Vouchsafing the Violently Vicious and Voracious Violation of Volition. The only Verdict is Vengeance; a Vendetta, held as a Votive, not in Vain, for the Value and Veracity of such shall one day Vindicate the Vigilant and the Virtuous. Verily, this Vichyssoise of Verbiage Veers most Verbose, so let me simply add that it is my Very good honor to meet you and you may call me V"

What a great depiction of V! You're right; you don't see many action shots of him on devART. But you did an absolutely wonderful job of it! :)

Awesome work and great shading. Even though you added so little shading he looks so realistic and three dimensional. Great job.

:jawdrop: I regretfully waited until the movie came out on DVD to see it, and now I'm obssessed! I can't seem to find the comics at any local shops...looks like I'll have to get them online! : \

Seriously, this looks amazing. I'm jealous, really....:D I gotta post some V fanart!

Awesome job, hon! :D You're actually quite talented at Photoshop! I think that the next thing you should focus on is color blending, or a type of smudging, to give it a fuller, rounder, and smoother look. ^_^

You owe me an email, btw. ;P
