Hokukage, Stacy Michalcewicz, Hoon (2D)

Title: Hokukage
Name: Stacy Michalcewicz, Hoon
Country: United States
Software: Painter, Photoshop

Hokukage is one of the many who are leading the Sullens, the army of dark ninja. This primitive yet well organized community began before any civilization, but it is slowly losing its territorial power.
Hokukage's greed and fame eventually grew out of proportion, and he took his roll in the eventual ruination of the army. His political advancements in the community gave him considerable influence, disapproved of by most.
I used Photoshop cs, Painter 8, and wacom for this piece. Lineart by HOON, painted by Juji :)
This particular character is designed as iconic "NINJA" character for the story of Ninja Talkshow. To confirm that NINJA talkshow indeed have ninja characters in the story
Keen project, Ninja talkshow Character concept series. All characters and concepts, copyright mess studio / HOON

Nice work! Interesting details on the shadow part. It has a realistic look, but the proportion seems kind of stylise & exaggerated. Is that a particular style you are aiming for? Cool..

very nice

This is a great picture, i love how you put catoons into some of the deatail shots, great work, you have a good sence of humor

The dawn of shadow arises, spreading darkness over the land like a flood of despair. None can escape that tide of dread none can outrun it...

great concept. nice details throughout. i like how you feel led about when you look at it. the one critic that i do have is to do with the right leg (his right). It seems a bit too lengthy . very nice overall though!!! 4 stars

Just great! I like the motion of the picture.
Maybe you should blur the reflection.

Great work Juji!

( I don't even come to CGTalk that often if I'm not posting art... I must have really good timing here, hehe)

hey Juji - this is lovely as always. You're not posting on renderosity.com anymore...?... :+(

does Hoon have the lineart to this one on his DA site???

Nice job! I really like this image. Oh, and ninjas are totally sweet!
Old 01 January 2005   #13
Very cool style.

Thank you everyone.
SeanE: I do once in a great while, but I've been pretty busy. Maybe I should for old times, eh? :P I don't think HOON is giving out the lineart to this one, since it's part of a project that hasn't been released.
Again, thanks for feedback guys! ^^

Great illustration...

* Maybe a little bit of motion-blur on the chains, (not much! I like the chains detail...) just to give more motion to the scene... Anyway, nice work...
