FILTH by Kiriska FILTH by Kiriska
It's been too long since I did blood. I forgot how fun it was, though I did try to be a little more realistic this time with the amount of blood. <_< (The last time I am refering to isn't uploaded on my devART account, so if you wanna see it, you'll have to stop by my site. :3)

Look! He's got a gun. That damn thing gave me so many headaches and I redrew it so many times. Don't ask me what it's supposed to be because I just don't know. I looked up five or six references off google and I just can't be bothered about what models or whatever the hell they are. Damn, with knives, it's so much easier...but I like how the gun turned out in the end. It doesn't look half-assed like it did in the sketch.

Oh yeah...he used to have a lower half. I drew him originally with a pelvis and legs, but as I didn't use a reference for the anatomy AT ALL...I wasn't really sure how the pelvis connected to the femurs so I just sort of..cropped it off at the end of the spine? Later, after I had actually lined the thing, I looked up a skeleton for kicks to see how horribly I had mutilated his anatomy. Gahaha..his sternum must've stretched down three inches...and half his ribs are missing and I think I mixed up his radius and ulna on his left arm, and I bet half of you don't know wtf I'm talking about...(Sternum = breastbone; radius & ulna = two bones in forearm)

Hey, now that I look at it...having his neck like that much be reaallly uncomfortable. I meant to have some of his feathers missing on his right wing to balance out his left wing being a bit torn, but I forgot about it completely until just now. Then again, I also meant to cel shade the damn thing, and look how much I screwed that notion up. His right thumb must really be dislocated...Oh, by the way, there's a spade tattoo on his spine, but you can't really tell and it looks like an ugly blob. Yes, that is a heart in his hand...I didn't use a reference and I'm sure all the valves and tubes are wrong and the aota is probably bigger than that, but I doubt any of you paid attention in bio and care.

I spent 10 hours on this bastard so by the time I got to the background, I was just out of ideas. I went through about 20 stock pictures before I just gave up and splattered blood everywhere. It doesn't look too great, but whatever. "FILTH" comes from the song of the same name by Dir en grey, because the song rocks and I've just come to like that word for no reason in particular.

And is going on in this picture. I have no idea, but here were a few ideas;

1) He's just shot a hole in himself and pulled out his heart and it's magically healing, thus the bruised redness on his ribcage where he blasted himself open.

2) He's got no heart, so he killed someone else, ripped out their heart and is going to surgically graft it to himself or something.

3) He's just killed someone, ate them, and picked out their heart for pickling.

4) ...Aymichi was pissed because I haven't drawn him in forever and so he went and killed all of my other characters and ate them. Or something.

5) I think that was it. There is no logical explaination for why he is a floating torso, only the sorry technical excuse that his creator doesn't know anatomy for shit.

Wow. I wrote a lot.

I like the fact that he doesn't have a lower half. If he did, I might have nightmares. ;_;

I rest in peace knowing he can't walk in here and eat my heart. :)

Ultra-awesome-spectacular job. :B

I really love what the tone adds to this...the veins and teeth are really awesome. So much detail overall...jesus it's amazing.

As a admirer of Hellsing anime, the guy instantly reminds of a thing called Alucard. Same kind of devilish smile, quite the same hairstyle and a big gun. Even more the fact that he's smiling just with torso left and so on...
If You don't have a clue what the hell i'm talking about, get Your hand on anime series called Hellsing. It's probably one of the best ever made. Watch it.

Now all he's missing is a hat, yar? Yeah, Hellsing is cool. ^^ I haven't been able to my hands on the anime just yet, but two volumes of the manga is enough to register an opinion.

Man, I really wished I could draw like you can. o_o; That's really awesome. If you ever get around to making that a print, I'd be tempted to buy it, yessum. :heart: the detail mucho. -nod-
Kiriska Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2004
I'll keep that in mind when/if I get a print account. :D
akumushade Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2004
:D w00t.

Wowie miss, I like blood too. Meh I don't like drawing blood from observation, found a dead birdy with its neck ripped out and its guts showing but I was too chicken to sit down and draw it although I carried it round for the day. Stupid me. Not even Jhonen Vasquez could draw that psycho glare. I love how his skin hangs off although I think it could benefit from some spine sticking out xD

I have a commission for a zombie raccoon...there will be bone showing in that one. ;D
Tanci Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2004
=| Wow... reminds me of Angel Sanctuary, what with the gory details and all. A bit disturbing, but awesome nonetheless :nod: Yesh, I likes the gun as well. Very detailed!

wrote TOO MUCH. but i like it. the veins are a nice touch, add to the zombie-ishness or whatever youd like to call it of the character. i approve.
merelylaura Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2004
Dude, that is so fucking creepy. Seriously, lmao, it sent shivers down my spine. But it is a -damn- good piece of art. ^nod^ And the gun turned out really well ^^.

Deliciously evil piece. I like how the backdrop contrasts with the little details of his body....torso....thing....*coughs*

ouch! that looks really... really painful!
Nice work tho. You got the gore really nicely done, and the work on the gun is excelent too. Also, I think your choice of keeping a graphic background with type was a good choice, dosn't distract from the monster it's self. :clap:
