Right, so I pulled out of the previous GFX round due to not being able to finish on time. Since then I've been working on the image on-and-off and now it's finished only about a week late.

The picture shown below is half the size, the fullsize one can be found by clicking on the picture.

The full resolution pic (1280xs1024) is low quality...the high quality version is 1.1Mb and doesn't fit on photobucket xD Lame. Except I feel justified with the size...this was hand-drawn from start to finish.

I should have tidied up the sketchlines more, but wasn't actually intending to spend this much effort on it. Meh.

O MY LANTA!!!!!

That's is freaking M-AZING.

Lulz I love how your signature and the date it was made is on the belt. Very creative.

And the details just blew my mind away.

That rhino drawing is amazing...

But, one small detail that caught my eye...Is his crotch glowing?

Oh my, uhm:

@ zootsuit: Yes, that is the belt. Yes, his crotch is glowing. That wasn't because I wanted to make his CROTCH glow, I swear, it was purely for compositional purposes!

However, for your viewing lulz, I will show you something from Hunter x Hunter: Hisoka gets excited, bwahahahaha.

@ Zophia: I know- I realised I didn't know the specifics of rhino dentition and when I sketched it I just didn't put as much effort into it. I think the angle's off and the tongue is in the wrong place but this is one time I don't really care. I do believe that if you look at the full size image it's not actually apparent.

@ fst6: Norris vs the Rhino? That is a wicked awesome idea...it may even be worked into the project proper!

Click image for link to full-size.

There's a story behind this one- I've always been called a ninja in some manner of speaking. Why I call myself strop/strawpony is another story but anyway!

One late October, a friend of mine invited me to her 21st- it was fancy dress. I decided that I would turn up in a home-made ninja suit, which required me to fashion a mask made from cloth. When I turned up to the party, nobody recognised me because of the mask (like duh) and since I ended up being the only guy in actual fancy dress (so much for the fancy dress party) I was thereafter known as "that ninja guy". And every time I meet the family of said friend, they all have trouble recognising me because all they remember is the ninja.

So really. Even ninja have to take their masks off someday, or face a lonely existence.

You could get a job at a hospital there and then you could meet my sister!

Practice makes perfect, and when you've got experience and skill (like Zophia, for example), you can in fact tell what I've got to improve on next.

I might actually post a couple of exercises to show you how I practice, from like scratch up to this point. I do need a bit of basic revision.

I'm waiting for my new computer to arrive so that I can actually get all the software I really want and GET AWESOME.

Or something.

You think it may have been handy if you had told me what program you use?

What type of computer you getting? Please don't tell me you are buying some DELL cheapy with Vista and 1 GB RAM ... WHICH DOESN'T WORK!
