Enter the Dark Prince by Wulfsbane Enter the Dark Prince by Wulfsbane
I wanna thank my friends Kelley, Luke and Belle for their encouragements, the members of Eatpoo.com for their invaluable critiques, those that mentioned I needed to give a glow to his runic tattoos thing, Stardragonblue for suggesting this as a DD, Aeires for featuring it, Ubisoft for creating such a fun cool game and interesting character, Jordan Mechner who started the Prince of Persia game. Finally to all of you for the positive response and support :) I'm still open to critiques, even though this is an old piece. Just don't mention what the hair is "supposed" to look like, capice?

Just so you all know I used a 2.5 by 3.5 inch cheap tablet that was a nightmare to use compared to my current Wacom Graphire. Never. Again.

Daily Deviation

Given 2006-03-18
Enter the Dark Prince by ~Wulfsbane shows more of the dark side to this character, but if you look close, you can see the inner turmoil that fights for control of the prince. ( Suggested by BriefLeaf and Featured by Aeires )

Absolutely awesome, my friend! And one of my top favorite PoP pictures on dA!:love::love:

The shading is so perfect and realistic! I love how you made his muscles! (Especially in the torso area!:nod:)
You've made the daggertail with perfect accuracy! Drawing that thing kills me!:faint:
And the environment is gorgeously made!:heart::heart:

The Prince is an absolute hottie, and you certainly got him down pat!:clap::heart::heart:
It is an amazing job!:worship:

In ancient Japan, the weapon of "the hammer" was a chain with a weight on the end, it could be launched --yet held onto for retreival; hurled, or swung; -- but the common use was to throw it so quickly that the opponent could not bring his guard up, and then the weight would cause some damage to the area aimed at.

This character seems to have something similar, (I don't have any idea how it might function) .. but it certainly did make me thing of the Japanese Hammer of the Old Days.

Well, back when I did my Prince of Persia piece (my featured deviation) I was searching DevArt for other art that could inspire me... and voila!

Haha I think I did the same with this, although there wasn't much at the time so I stuck with the actual concept art from the game.

You captured his character struggle perfectly! I'm a fan of the first game myself, but I thought the character twist of the third game was interesting.

Hey, thanks very much. Glad you were able to get that part about the hair, as it seems not many people have at first glance. Though, for the most part, I have myself to blame for that.

But really thanks again for sharing your thoughts :D

Now, I don't know Prince of Persia so I can't tell what about this is your design and what is from the game, but needless to say it is an awesome picture. The tatoos and shoulder spikes, the glow of the knife, the nifty organic-ish chain weapon (what is that exactly?)...wow. And it's needless to say that the anatomy is awesome.
