Oh lawdeh, one of those typical "music themed" pieces :o

Yet another old WIP I've picked up recently to finish. This dates back all the way to last Summer, so that should explain why the artwork looks so dated compared to my recent deviations. I had a MAJOR artblock and I had no will or motivation to draw a thing and it was infuriating. All of that changed when I stumbled across this song from an SF3:Third Strike tutorial video on YouTube:


Ever since then, this beat has been stuck in my head and it motivated me to finally draw something! So I whipped out my tablet, opened up Photoshop, then proceeded to draw my butt off. Alas, I stopped immediately after making the lineart and dropped the project for an entire year at the mercy of college studies and all around more interesting projects I had in mind at the time.

This is basically a simple illustration of all 3 of the main characters from my non-existent martial arts story: Ghost *coughmecough*, Jamal, and Darrell. I'm extremely satisfied at how well this turned out even though the background may look a little blegh :D It seems Darrell's been long overdue for a design upgrade, so I gotta keep in mind to work on that :ninja:

So if you'll excuse me, I'll head back into my corner and head bop to some good old fashioned hip hop beats instead of the crap that festers my ears in this post-2000 generation. Because this is how we chill from '93 'till :toocool:

"This is how we chill from '93 till"

Now I feel like kicking myself for not knowing who those guys were until now. Granted, I was already surrounded by great hip hop from Bone Thugz to Nate Dogg back then, but dammit there's no excuse for me now:chainsaw:

Glad to see that you finished what you started. It WOULD be pretty awesome if you somehow managed to work on that non-existent martial arts story since these characters deserve their own canon story to tie everyone together.

As for the background, I think it looks pretty good from here. Or if anything, you did an awesome job with the colors since you used just the right ones to create the illusion of an actual warm sunset on an ocean.

Man, I'm in the exact same boat as you. I've only discovered these guys last year after all the old school hip hop I've been listening to. We can both bear the shame on our shoulders, because we're bros like that :toocool:

I've been working on this story for as long as I can remember and I can never seem to get enough ideas formulated to conjure up a properly structured arc. This is either some pretty difficult stuff or I'm just unoriginal and lazy :lmao: And thanks for the compliment about the background. It took juuuust the right overlay color on the entire thing to capture the warm mood. Glad I put more effort into the background more than I usually do :D

That's nice picture I say! I wonder do you heard of Hollywood Undead?

Hollywood Undead is a rock/rap band. Maybe underrated but they're one of the best band you must listen to. Just ran into them after a trailer of Street Fighter X Tekken, you should listen to them, here's one of their songs, and you may find others as well. [link]

This sounds pretty hardcore, but not really my cup of tea. I'll listen to more of their songs some other time however :D
