Cafu from the videogame Sudeki.
Cafu is the Aklorian counterpart of Elco, or, as they say in the game, his "darkself."
Cafu is the one character of the eight that you never play as during the game, which makes me a bit sad, but I understand why he couldn't fit into the gameplay. I drew Cafu nearly a month and a half after completeing Nico, delaying the finish of my project significantly. -__- But Lo and Behold! Here he is!
Oh, and in explaination of the title: Cafu was a painter before the darkness became more and more significant, and since all the light and color faded, he lost all his ideals for painting and art. He expresses to Elco about how distraught he is over losing his passion.
I chose a simple pose for him, because I wasn't exactly sure what to do with him. He's never played, so I can't say I understand his character as much as the other seven. Also, his clothing really proved to be difficult to draw and color, because everything in Akloria is so bland and grey.
Cafu marks the end of my project, but I feel unfinished. Perhaps I'll draw more characters from the game, just to keep myself busy and to keep my juices flowing.
Hope you like it!

One last thing: I prefer comments without faves than faves without comments. PLEASE tell me what you think.

Cafu is (C) to Sudeki.
Sudeki is (C) to Microsoft.

random_guy2It's too bad you never get to play as Cafu, he looks awesome. I really like his outfit and weapon. Although, his right knee looks a little off. In this drawing, what I like most is the background. The iron fence like in Alexine's picture is so cool. Plus the crumbling pillars and crawling plants, it adds up to a really neat decaying look. I'm glad you were able to find a reference for his face markings, they're very cool. They suit him. And again, dark colors, etc. You've heard it before. :p

Good job, and I hope you draw the antagonist next!

OricalcossHa ha ha, again, proportion issues. Those'll grind out sooner or later. I'm glad you like the detail so much. It sucks that you couldn't see it for yourself. But no worries! I shall re-create it for you! :3

Thanks for the com man.

random_guy2Yeah, I'm still disappointed about not getting to play it. Oh well, these are awesome enough to make up for it.

You're welcome! Can't wait to see more.

DementorThis is pretty kick @$$ my friend. The only thing I have to say about his is that his right hand, the one holding the gun, seems a bit on the larger side compared to his head or face, but that could be just me. Everything else is pretty fantastical, the detail of course is always amazing. I can't do that to save my life, I try but fail. TT-TT So I leave it up to you. ^^ LOVE IT!!!!!!!

Favs ^_^

OricalcossI go to excrutiating efforts for those details, my friend. All I can say is PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE! Hopefully my future pictures won't involve such hardcore backgrounds, then they'll go up faster. . .
Yes, I admit there are proportion issues, but those issues will have to be hammered out! RAAAAA!
Thanks for the com and the fave! :3
