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

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..

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.

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...

Love the details in his kneecap, scythe handle, and clothing. The shadow stuff makes it even more mysterious. The elongated proportionls and whipping chain really help the motion of the drawing.

You can't tell by the full image (because of the size), but the close-ups show great use of brushes. Very natural looking. However, his limbs are way too lengthy. Perhaps it is your intention, but it looks a bit odd.
