Tears Be Gone

Posted Nov 1, 2007, 5:57:07 PM
Kuro was born into a happy family and lived a great life till the age of three. That was when everything was taken away from him. His parents were murdered and he was taken in by an evil man he called 'The Red Demon'. He was beaten by the red demon day and night being told that he had great powers and was to use them. He never learned how to use these great powers until the age of 16 in which he use them to destroy the red demon. After that he became known as the dark emperor. His goal was to destroy this world and create a new one.

At most times Ken's expression is a sad one. Though he is never seen crying his eyes tell of great sorrow. However he dies have a hot temper. If his plains are spoiled or he happens to be in a bad mood and you talk to him... watch out! He might try to chop of your head. As for smiling? Nothing makes him happier then getting his own way. He loves picking on innocent souls and has a habit of smiling when doing so.

Its in colour now! Took me about 2 hours and Im happy with it. Though if anyone knows of a better way to do the wings please let me know. They were a pain in the ass. Really they were.

Edit: Lightened the background

    Lovely character, I really love the soft sad look of his eye. The background frames the subject nicely without detracting from it. I would have gone with some darker values in places, especially in the hair and clothing to make the lighter values pop, but overall this is a very well done piece. Thanks for sharing it.

      More where the shadows are? Hehe I kept brightening up the picture because people were telling me it was too dark. But brightening it just didn't seem to work. I want to give your suggestion a try. Thank you!

        Yes, cast shadows where the clothing lies on top of his shoulders, under his arm and along the side where the light would not be as strong. Putting some darks in the hair will also push the highlights forward for more contrast. Good luck. Smile

          Ive been attempting this. Its is making it look better so far though Im still working on it. Thank you again for the help!

    Your colors are great, and I love the way you do the leather ^_^ The shine makes it so convincing. What made me stop and look twice was the way you show such emotion in such a straight body. His shoulders are squared, and his body language is so strong, but then his expression is so pained. Its a beautiful contrast and says a lot without words. Well done!

      Im glad you like it ^_^ I put allot of effort into it and love it! But I haven't gotten allot of feed back compared to the rest of my artwork. Thank you!

        Well, sometimes things that are super popular aren't as impressive as some of the less popular things, I mean, when I spend days on a piece, that I put symbolism and my heart into, I get zero feedback, but I swear to god I do a scribble and people swear its the best thing since sliced bread. (Not that that's necessarily true for you, just a personal observation) I'm really tired, so what I'm trying to say is that some of the unsung stuff can be the best ^_^

          Lol Actually I know exactly what you mean. I did a quick scribble of Link and a chicken at around five in the morning. It seems to be loved by everyone who sees it. *Wants to kill the picture*

          And thanks again! ^_^
