I’m so glad that I finally finished something. It’s been a while since I posted a piece that wasn’t a quick sketch. I finished a teaser from last year. I had several things that I had started, but I didn’t knew which to finish first. One of them was this:
Most lines were already there and the hair was mostly finished too. But somehow I got carried away. I just kept adding colours and effects. Not sure if I like it. It still doesn’t feel totally finished yet. But then one can’t just keep at it. I wonder what I could add or improve. Feel free to suggest something. This is version posted on my deviantart. Feel free to check it out there too!
Medium: Normal blue ballpoint, light blue gelpen in his hair, dark blue pencil for the black iron scyth, light grey pencil for darkening the shades on his skin, light and dark blue Copic marker for the effect.
Paper: A sketch paper, little smaller then A4
Time: Now and then a bit for the last few months
Subject:Aleksandr “Sasha” Nikolaevich Hell (my god isn’t that a kewl name?) from “The qwaser of Stigmata” manga (or “Seikon no Qwaser” anime) series authored by Hiroyuki Yoshino and featuring art by Kenetsu Satō.
Reference: a wallpaper of sasha and his scythe, added the effects to it but not sure if they are okay ^^;
I do recommend this ongoing manga. It is ecchi, which can annoy sometimes, but overal it’s nice. Some romance, some drama, kewl and voilent action and off course some funny situations. There’s an anime version too which is heavily censored compared to the manga.
Story: (source: wikipedia)
The story chronicles the school lives of Mafuyu Oribe and Tomo Yamanobe at the Japanese Eastern Orthodox school St. Mihailov Academy where they have endured persecution and ostracization from the other students led by the daughter of the current dean Miyuri Tsujidou and her second-in-command Hana Katsuragi. Mafuyu and Tomo’s lives take a drastic turn when they nurse the silver-haired Russian-born Aleksander “Sasha” Nikolaevich Hell back to health upon encountering him unconscious during their home commute one day. Almost immediately, Sasha begins to repay Mafuyu and Tomo’s humanitarianism as he repels their tormentors; unfortunately, this does not change Sasha’s prologue as a throw-away Qwaser from the Adepts and that the Adepts have no qualms about making an absolute war zone of the Academy in order to acquire the Theotokos of Tsarytsin from Athos who wishes to keep the icon’s existence a secret from the world.
Well that’s about it. Don’t think I can tell much more about it. Feel free to leave your 2 cents on the drawing or even the serie below. Thanks for looking and till later,
