Mantis Inks by tkpants Mantis Inks by tkpants
Psycho Mantis again, from Metal Gear Solid. Look at him, isn't he the best? He's so cute.

Inked with my trusty Pentel brush pen.

Coloured (and regrettably tiny and cropped) here: [link]

This reminds me of a scene from Wizards. I think it was called Wizards. It was animated back in the 70's and there were a couple of guys wearing gas masks. One was named Ed.

Wonderful boss fight. The first time I saw the "put your controller on the floor" scene blew me away.


I don't know if that was your intention, but this reminds me of Shinkawa's sketches for the game. Good job there - I keep trying to emulate his style with no success.

Whoa, thanks! I wasn't consciously trying for it; maybe his style is lurking in my subconscious.

I must say that Mantis is one of my favourite characters from that game, which made me like this work even more.

And black and white has it charm too. :D

Keep it up.

OMG, Mantis! This sure brings back a lot of memories.

Gah, so expressive and solid! I feel bad for I can't seem to come up with as many words for the awesomeness I'd like. I love this.

Also, Pentel brush pen is my best friend. It's fun to hear from another user. :)

Thanks! I felt like I'd levelled up after I drew him.

Pocket Brush is such a great tool for anyone starting out with brush inking, the bristles are nice and firm...I'm gonna move on to a regular brush and ink eventually. Maybe. If I ever stop loving this thing. ...so...never, basically. :D
