Khaim Cel Shaded by slayerv2 Khaim Cel Shaded by slayerv2
Its the old man

'... all my life i lived looking for something...
Something or someone that would or could make me feel human again .
That would make me belong .
Looked for it in alcohol , sex, drugs ...

Little that I knew they were right under my nose .
How stupid of me to have wasted so much time drowning myself in my own damn pathetic sorrow .
I had neglected them .
But now , i know what i must do . I will do whatever it takes to keep them safe.
Even if i must kill
or even die , I will protect them . '

`Khaim's conversation with Inspector Noriko.

Just Khaim with some gun's. He is a trained killer , that after all these years still knows how to use his.
Mr. Private Investigator used to be in the military , before being dishonorably discharged for deserting .

Used some refference for this posse.

here is the link


Still Work in progress , secondary character in my graphic novel venture 'The Un/Usualz'

Next up is either lain or Annika.


worked on this a little more , by no means is it finished .
I will post the links to the brushes , later this morning .

I tried shading him , and drawing some guns , really i have no idea how to draw guns , and i guess looking at the Gungrave Visual Works helped but not the accuracy.

PS , the titles to these pieces are titles to chapters in my graphic novel story i am working on .
Usually refferecing songs that have influenced the story.
In this case , Behind Blues Eyes by The Who.
Khaim' side is important but it is more of a side story and has a darker feel to it.

any who tell me what you think

Hey good pose, I really like how the face came out.
All I can say is that Arm/hands are really hard to do.
but it looks like you've got it down just like the phote.

thank you, well the hands especially.
In animation we are taught to draw hands , since they convey action in certain cases thus they have to be draw well.

Really? So in animation classes they teach a person how to do hands and hand actions?

life drawing in part of the course , where we learn anatomy .
Sure toons are exagerated and would seem they dont need any knowledge of life drawing or anatomy.
But bits and pieces of life drawing are incorporated in to you drawing... i hope that made sense

Now it's my turn to say sorry for the late reply, my goodness!

Nice update. I really dig the shading and perspective of course <3 I think you could take it a step further and use heavy black block shading as well. I love how he looks like a badass but something about him is still cute haha :heart:
