deep within a bamboo field by theCHAMBA deep within a bamboo field by theCHAMBA
So when the mighty :iconcheeks-74: asked me if was hook him up w/ a Kuta card, I just had to do it.
I remember reading about the contest he had set up for it.
It gave me a great reason to draw him up, but then what with my computer dying on me those few weeks back, I had missed the deadline.
So i thought that was done and that I would eventually draw Kuta when I found a chance.

Til Sean hit me up and asked, which I knew I couldn't turn down.
I was going to alter his face to make it look more like an east asian mask, more detail heavy. But figured that would lose the touch that Sean designed him as, so I went with this.

Very nice work on Cheeks character. I've been so interested in this character since his debut and actually want to vocie over the guy for animation. He looks like he'd be so much fun to play.

I don't know if, long ago I told you this before, but you, should be, an anime movie designer. You deserve to see your style put into a movie someday. You have more pencil detail in your art than anyone else I've seen.

wow, it's rather simple, but still kind of compellig.... It gives the feeling that there's a story to it. That something is happening, that he's moving.
I notice others have been seeing likeness with animated stuff. Really interesting.. in such a calm picture.

This work is truly amazing, even by your standards.

Can you tell me a bit about your colour selection process? Do you just go by instinct, or do you plan the hues (as in the effect of the hue of the light, chroma etc.)?

i kind've wish alot of shit was pre-planned
usually i have an idea in my head, but usually whilst working on it, it takes a life of it's own and changes.
so i just simply ride it
