Edit, April 19th 2013:

A-hah-hah... what the fuck. Haven't really checked my dA account much, in part due to internet connection problems, then I finally decide to give my account a look tonight, and see this. Almost didn't notice the DD, either... Probably took me about ten minutes of looking at comments, and the unusual amount of requests from groups, before I finally figured it out. :zombie:

Thanks for the comments, everyone -- I'll try to respond to most of them individually as soon as I get around to it.

As for the artwork, as you can see by the date, it's almost a year old now, so there's a few things I'd do differently nowadays. But overall I'm still fairly happy with it. Also, this is my first DD on a non-collab piece, which is nice. Now, if you really want to make me happy dA, feature one of my Fantasy art originals. *hint* Heh heh.

Oh yeah, and it's also nice to see a pic of Valkenhayn featured, since he's still one of my favourite characters. Now I feel motivated to do another one some time...

It's that pink bow in his hair. All the ladies love it. ( Plus, it confuses the guys, so he can beat them up more easily. )

And thanks -- long hair can be pretty fun to paint.

ohhh i see.... >ㅅ<;;;;

I just adore the he looks masculine and feminine at the same time with the bow and hair/fangurl-ing/
such an eye candy to me, :iconhornyplz:
anyways...I'll look forward to see more of paintings of you ★

dasAoD Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013
I agree, I like how his design looks strong and masculine, but also has certain feminine aspects, instead of just being another "Hulk lookalike", like many fighting game characters.

And the bow-tie is a cute and unique detail, especially in his werewolf form. :D

Yeah, his clothing looks very well made and expensive, too.

That's weird, but I imagine it has its practical advantages. It would be a little awkward if he changes back, and his clothing is completely shredded and lying around on the floor. :giggle:

This guy is so awesome. And this picture of him is so beautifully done.
Him vs. Guilty Gear's Slayer: that'd be epic.

Yeah, I like Slayer too. That could be interesting, although I imagine they'd get along pretty well, and would just have some tea together. :)

Glad you like the art!

I'm glad this made DD. Otherwise, I'd have been forever robbed of such an awesome piece. So much going on in there too! So much to love - the hard, bright moonlight, the windy blur of the foreground, the crisp clean line work. Simpy stated... GORGEOUS.

Indeed, it can be hard to find things on dA, even when you're specifically looking for a character or theme.

Thanks a lot for the feedback, glad you enjoyed the artwork!

HOOOLLLY SH-*faints* Gawd this is beyond words dude, I mean truly. X3 This.....wow.....I don't think this could be accomplished with Paint tool sai.....within whatever time this took. How long did it take anyway?

:icondasaod:
dasAoD Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2013
Eh, the software doesn't really matter. Well, not much. You just need to get to the point where you're experienced and efficient with whatever tools you are using.

And I think I spent a pretty long time on it... Maybe twenty-ish hours? I'm quite pedantic about my art, especially when it's all my own, and not a collab. I tend to change and rework things several times.

Glad you like it!
