The Lone Swordsman

The Lone Swordsman

Heaven has fallen, including its Leader, Aven, thanks to the Demon King Shutendoji's new Elite Demons. Now Shutendoji has his eyes set on Earth. Can a Lone Swordsman wielding Aven's sword stand a chance against such hopeless odds? Or will the madness of the souls he must absorb destroy him from the inside?

Rated PG-13 due to cartoon violence, blood and mild language.

I dropped my tablet a few weeks ago, and I just recently noticed a few days ago that there seems to be like hairline cracks in it. It leaves like slight discolorations when I'm drawing. It's only noticeable on light colored backgrounds, but when I'm drawing it gives me no end of frustrations. I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars to get it maaaybe fixed and have to spend weeks without my tablet, but it makes my head hurt looking at it, so I'm undecided.

I had trouble coming up with a name for this chapter, so I just decided to name it for the Form name of Dark's current transformation.

While it is never mentioned in the story, each of Dark's Transformations have a name that I call them based on a Seven Deadly Sin, the one that resembles the Sin that is most associated with the soul that Dark absorbed. His previous transformation was Lust, due to Kira's lust for power that led to her marrying Shutendoji in the first place.

This form is Envy, named after Kratos' sin, caused by his constant jealousy towards his brother. Envy has been referred to as a "Green Eyed Monster" in Shakespeare (I believe) and while the green eyes doesn't transfer here, I wanted this form to be feral-like to fit that "Monster" trait, while keeping the long hair from his previous transformation since he obviously still has Lady Kira's soul in him as well.

This page came out pretty cool. I'm going to regret making Dark look like this, I assume, but for now it's fun drawing him.

I'm going to just rant into the ether for a sec. The new season of Game of Thrones has been bugging me, and I think I figured out what it is - the showrunners, without the books to kind of guide them, have no sense of pacing. Everything just sort of "happens" at once and it's always been the slow burn that made GoT moments feel even bigger.

Also, they've totally screwed up Tyrion. In the books, he's really smart, and even when it doesn't seem like he knows what he's doing, he's got a plan. Ever since they deviated from the books (around the time he landed in Mereen), he's been a moron and nothing's gone right. If he's not smart, what's the point of him? /rant

Today was a weird, unsettling day... (well, week) for Americans. Makes me glad that as a Canadian, our big political thingamajig is about a giant rubber duck or something.

This is the end of Part 5! Dark's supposed to look more feral, so I styled him more "werewolf" (with the super long creepy arms). Probably don't expect his hair to look this crazy every time.

Sol hasn't told me, but I'd guess he's got a few more transformations in him...

I did a background! I am terrible at backgrounds!

I kind of dig this page for the action poses though.
Since Kratos is gone, the party (sans Masai) have made their way out of the tower.

Which means if Siska sees Masai falling, that's... probably a bad sign.
You know those mental health tests online charge you like $9 to get results? That feels exploitative to me...
I had totally forgot what the Prince looks like lol. It's been a long time.
Ack I saved the file incorrectly and lost all the layers so I can't edit it anymore.
Yeah I dunno why I tried drawing it this way instead... the drawing was pretty fast but coloring took longer than the other way I was drawing so I'm still split on whether it's better or worse.

I'm not sure if it even looks any different, even if the entire process is waaaay different.
He's probably crying but I'm not gonna show it 'cuz cool guys don't show it.

(I realize I've totally probably drawn him crying before but whatever! Cool guy!)
Cheap goods

Playing around with lining and shading techniques.

I think this type of shading color corrects better, but I'm not 100% happy about it. It color corrected way blue for my liking, but I think it's a nice efficient method compared to previously.
They announced a new Doctor Who today! I'm pretty happy with Jodie Whittaker, she was probably the best part of Broadchurch to me.

Also, there's a new Blazblue coming! A crossover with RWBY and Persona and some other stuff, so that's exciting.

ALSO, new Game of Thrones season happening! Sad that it's a shortened season, but still thrilling.
Nothin' better than a boob window.
I thought I gave myself enough time to knock this out, but I'm spending way too much time watching Woj's twitter feed waiting for news on Carmelo Anthony
I downloaded a more "comic-y" font, but I've been using this font for so long I don't know if I should switch it or leave it for continuity's sake.
New anime season! I'm stoked for Kakegurui.
With it being so sunny out, I lost track of time and ended up reading a book for a few hours longer than I meant to... so this page is like 2 hours late haha.

Hope any Americans reading this had a good Independence Day. Any without aliens blowing up the White House have got to be considered "good" right?
I got around to finishing Gamble Fish. I had read like 80 chapters of it before I stopped for months, and it was finished and I forgot about it.

My favorite part of it is that President Obama is in it! Though they call him President Omaha, King of the World. Which is already hilarious as is.
