copy paste from dA, I'm really too tired to go and write another description.

Oh wow, I can not believe I finally got my lazy butt to work and do something.

Phew, it's incredible how much of a pain was to finally start working on a real painting, instead of the usual 20 - 30 min. quicky I drop every once in a while on this site, but since I got a new tablet, and I mean, goddamn, it's an awesome Intuos4, so, from now on, and you mark my words, I'm going to (try to) make every submission as time consuming as this was.

SURPRISE SURPRISE, this actually is an OC with a backstory and all. He's supposed to be a legend amongst assassins or something like that, who masters poisons and stuff, yadda yadda, I just wanted to write it because it's taking half an hour to upload. I have so many ideas for comics that I'm pretty sure that either I won't be able to EVER do them all or I'll go insane trying to and end up on a nuthouse.


Also, bye.


I think I owe you a review! o:

First off: wow.
Did you need a reference for this? It's impressive that you're so good at the male face. I always had trouble drawing manly faces. Mine always turn out way too damn smooth or feminine. .. I think i might have a fear of wrinkes. o:

Anyway - Really lovin' the shading and smoothing.
And (i know you're probably going to want to huck something at me for saying this) but it really is a shame that you didn't feel like finishing this one! o:
I personally would love to see your full potential executed on this one. c: Even if it doesn't involve a background.

Keep up the good work!

Haha, thanks for dropping by!

At first, I did plan to use as a reference a picture of Morgan Freeman, and in fact, I was doing it when the lights went out [almost fractured my toe on my way back to my room(on a side note, I am smart)] and completely lost my progress, so the following morning I was too enraged because of having to start again from scratch and hurried the sketch so much I didn't even use a reference, although I used the photo again later for the skin tone. I miself would've loved to see this finished at a 100%, but the clothes were so troublesome and I had to draw them so many times I almost facedesked.

As for the lack of background, all the time, when I work on something for either a long or really short time, I usually say "Alright, I upload it today and update it later on with a background" and never finish it because of either laziness or wanting to start drawing something else and completely forget about it... nah, just laziness lol

oh, and by the way, don't think you owe me anything at all, I have a tendency to try to observe and point out what I like the most and the least, so I really enjoy writing reviews just as much as reading them, and I love getting nice reviews like yours, so worry not :D
