AFK and alter egos by geruru AFK and alter egos by geruru
Well there had to be a reason why such a stumpy lass like AFK could live through antics like sniper-fighting zombies at almost melee range, out running a slasher , bathing a werewolf and not getting owned. The personification of AFK's "shadow" from the prior pic, and AFK's alter-ego, simply dubbed "Von Slayer"

This one took around 4 days, I looked up Michael Koelsh's Earthworm Jim posters as reference for the painting style and went to town with the drybrush, watercolour and dry media brushes in Photoshop, I had to re-paint the face and sword multiple time before I was satisfied with it. and having characters in poses holding weapons is still one of my drawing demons, though I think I handled this one kinda well.

And yes, all Monster Slayers need whips, Simon Belmont set the standard, and the others should pay attention .

Ah, so there's the secret behind the shadow. How did she end up with this form, though?

I don't see any problems with the way you made her holding the weapons, and the painting is very nice and detailed. And that scary whip has range, I don't see how anything could escape from that.

Keep up the great work. ^^

Something invoving the hat. I'll probably do more on that another time though.

And yes that whip is supposed to be pretty beastly, something that would make a Belmont proud, too many whips get drawn as a string on a stick, this is something that could lash somebody a good distance away... though having said that Simon Belmont's whip was basically a rather long flail with a maceball on the end in a few of the titles.

Probably gonna do some fun stuff after this one, plus I have that Goemon Meme to fill in still, it's been sat half-done and I need to go finish it.

Not the best whip for working indoors, though (it'd probably be hard to use it without catching it on the ceiling and/or breaking everything in sight). I imagine that's where the sword comes in.

Oooooh, I'd love to see the meme if you finished it at some point. :heart: And whatever other fun stuff you have planned, too.
