CotWK: Iwazaru

This is a sketchy character design I did a while ago for another story of mine: Curse of the Winged Koi (that I'll be working on after I finish Knite and WE)

Iwazaru is the name of one of the 3 wise monkeys; it literally translates to "don't speak".

And yes, those are hands tattooed around the mouth :D

Drawn in Paint tool SAI, colors added in Photoshop. Font is hand written.

This is really cool. I love how the face paint is two hands covering the mouth, stating that he does not wish to speak.

this character seems like an assassin, ninja, person with a dark past, or supernatural being. Epic
