God Slayer by Arylett-Charnoa God Slayer by Arylett-Charnoa
You may have noticed I've slowed down a bit. This is the reason for that. This was one picture where I really was NOT feeling it.

I originally drew Shulk so that my fiance could have a matching Xeno character avatar. But honestly, it made me realize just how much I dislike the Xenoblade character designs. They're overly complex, and Shulk's is especially symptomatic of that. Next time I draw him, I will likely be drawing my own simplified version. Those pants... they just don't make sense to me. This was one of the most unfun things to work on in a while, and I really slogged through it. So the amount of effort towards the shading and coloring is a bit low because I just wanted to finish it.

However, I think the anatomy and such is getting more top-notch. And I learned about some new tools to use to speed things up through this. As well as more human practice. So it wasn't a complete waste. And the Monado was the easiest part. As per his request, I included a different form of it. And I also put glasses on him, because that was the only thing he was missing to make him look almost exactly like my fiance. (Yes, he looks A LOT like Shulk.) This'll probably be a thing now. Just putting glasses on Xeno protagonists. Because why not? Fei's next! 

Also, enjoy my attempts to make Japanese kanji. Those symbols do look interesting, so perhaps I might make up my own symbols that resemble them. (I'd rather not use a lot of symbols from a language I'm not familiar with as I know it can look rather stupid.)
