My third and final submission to the
This took quite a long time, been working on it steadily since day 1 of the contest. Thought I'd give a Shinigami/reaper character a try along with a respective noise form.
The idea was to give him a sorta manic, wildboy appearance to match his berserky, yet lovable werewolf noise form(which I essentially designed first before the boy.) Was playing with the idea that he assumes his noise form upon the removal of his bandage..which is kinda dumb, but the idea that a bandage can hold back a lycanthrope's transformation, amuses me...
He doesn't use a weapon of any kind in battle, but can exhume a sort of 'halfway' form in which he can use his tattoo as a formidable weapon.
Overall this was a fun project, despite it taking so long, I learned A LOT of new shortcuts in photoshop...and kinda found out the hard way the disastrous consequences of cutting corners when it comes time to assemble all these freakin' images together...
