Sefu, The Sword of the Sands

Author Comments

Keep clear denizens of the desert! it's Sefu the Sword of the Sands!

Sefu is a battle worn Mantisman who has survived a Mantisman mating ritual. Mating rituals are usually quite fatal to Mantisman males as the females are insanely powerful and violent and out weigh the males by a good 400 pounds.

After surviving the coupling ritual Sefu barely escaped his colony and clipped off his antenna, severing his link to the swarm and forever ostracizing himself among his own race. His mate was a notoriously cruel female and continues to hunt him down to this day!

Sefu is a renowned Martial artist who specializes in breaking techniques and has several retractable spines that are housed just under his exoskeleton. Mantismen exo-skeleton's never heal so older Mantismen typically have scars that are years old and are bound together with wraps and staples.

Sefu is also a cigar aficionado who eats the but ends of stogies because of his love of tobacco leaves.

I know i've done a mantisman kind of character before but i wanted to really nail him this time. Hopefully i can take this guy a little further as i'm a fan of his simple design.

Sefu wants a 9

Sefu wants a 9 he even broke a brick so that it would look like a 9 on its back, but i'm gonna give him a 10.(hope he doesn't get mad and rip me to pieces)
Great work and Great background story.

jouste responds:

thanks pal!

he appreciates the 10 and is not going to rip you up, he's actually a nice guy. especially if you pass him a cigar!


Great character!

This is awesome, not only the art (that is impeccable) but the description behind the character is also great, just one question... you have an online comic or animation based in this kind of characters? I really like to see it!
