I just noticed I need to add the zipper under Masurao's kneepad things on his left pant leg. lol. It was something else I had forgotten when I drew this initially. lol. I'm too tired to do it now... will do it later. zzzzz :dies:
Thought I might as well submit this in progression shots for the hell of it lol. Since I'm really freakin' tired, I will not be saying too much.. but I might come back and edit this more later.
Some updates since the [lineart version]
are, I fixed Zetsumei's right foot- now the sickle claw is on the correct side. X3 And obviously I have the flat colors done for this so far. I'll be putting in a BG towards the end probably or maybe next time I sit and work on this. I wanna set interesting lighting to try something new since my lights and darks are usually so black and white (as in, normal nothin' special). I wanna put them on a rocky cliff type thing within a jungle somewhere. I'll probably make the image canvas size a lot bigger so I can have a lot of fun with it. This image might be one of those longer projects.
Anyway for those who don't know, the characters are all my friends' characters except for Masurao (the red one).
From left to right:
For more info and backstory on these guys and my friends etc, visit the [lineart version]
. I don't have the energy to explain it all again lol. I'll probably write more in the final submission of this pic some time later on.
But anyway... there they all are. ^^
So far... around 6 hours or more. O_o
