Gen - Alt Costume 2 by TixieLix Gen - Alt Costume 2 by TixieLix
Experimentation time! Trying to do that brush calligraphy (sumi-e) style look of the Street Fighter IV art. I chose Gen since he's not in a lot of fan art, and I need some practice drawing age instead of beauty and youth all the time ;P Pretty much based his pose on his vs screen art coz I really liked that crane stance - there's just an elegance to it, which I hope I've been able to translate...

Trivia: By this stage of the story, Gen is supposed to be terminally ill. However, he's as deadly as ever being an ex assassin. I wanted to show that with a greyish skin tone, but convey strength with the pose and linework. The character reads 'Gen' in Japanese - had to do a bit of research there :P

[I have to admit, I'm starting to like this guy too, as tough and strict as he is.  Nice work, here. :nod:]

[You're welcome.  Is it dumb that I initially mistook his default outfit for a dress?]

[As if that's not enough, I personally think he'd look good in one, especially if it's long, loose, and flowing, like a princess's!]

That is awesome.

Good idea too. I'm assuming an assassin decides to have one last bloodlust-encore when they discover they're terminally-ill. He probably completes more contracts in his final year than ever in his life.
