Tag Archives: Art Challenge: deviantART's Arcade Week

Happy Friday the 13th

So I drew Leopold with his rapier for deviantART’s Arcade Week, following the art tutorial on line weight – Leopold has his dominant hand uplifted with his rapier closer to the viewer, so I added thicker lines there. {Basically the art tutorial says you go for thicker lines when it’s closer to you, and thinner lines if it’s further away.} If his rapier looks familiar, that’s cos it is – that’s Flambert from Soul Calibur, belonging to Raphael whom Leopold is a homage to. I listened to Sting & The Police while working on this, since Sting is also a visual inspiration for Leopold. β™‘

Also – Happy Friday the 13th!, which has always been a lucky day for me and my Bros. :3 β™‘
