Handsome Devil by eternalsaturn Handsome Devil by eternalsaturn
which is insanely long for me... I think it shows though, or at least I hope it does :P

Anyway, I've been wanting to make a Jersey Devil-based character for a long time, since it's one of my favorite mythological critters but I never could settle on a design I really liked until now. And yes, this is pretty much what the monster is SUPPOSED to look like, sans the frilly suit of course... well, I don't think the "real" thing had antlers but yeah, artistic license and all that. >_>

So what's this guy's deal? Well, his name is Trenton Leeds (haha, capital of New Jersey + family name of the Devil according to folklore, aren't I clever?) and... um... I guess he's some kind of "creepy rich recluse who lives in some old dilapidated mansion" judging by the look of this picture... originally I envisioned him as some sort of freaky cult leader, which I might still do... even if he doesn't particularly look the part anymore, hm. And yes, he does exist in the Spider Bubblegum universe and will appear in the comic WHEN I ACTUALLY START IT UP AGAIN I KNOW WTF (sorry, I'm lazy). He looks kinda vampire-like but I don't think he's really a vampire... those are sorta overdone anyway :D

Heeee I think he kinda looks like von Karma for some reason... see for yourself~ Not entirely intentional, though I can't say I wasn't somewhat inspired... maybe... a little >_> <_< Lol, this is 666 pixels wide... that WAS totally intentional :P

Brushes (ab)used: [link]

Anyway, stupidly long description aside, I'm OMGPLEASED with how this came out, which is kind of a rarity for ANY picture I do nowadays... of course my opinion will probably change in a couple of days (it always does) but for now, I'm quite proud of this. ^_^

Hah! Whenever I spend more than one day on anything, I end up feeling like it's horrible and I give it up. You have more patience than I! I like this guy! +fav! The brushes you used look great, I really need to get more into using things like that. ^^

I know, I never used fancy brushes before and I just threw some onto this for the heck of it and now, I can't stop using them! XD

Woah, so cool! Love the details and coloring. He looks at the same time both trustworthy and shifty. Cooooool. Something, however, just looks so very slightly off about the hand that's holding his wine (or, considering its particularly vibrant hue, blood). Not sure what, but I do see it.

Heh, he looks awesome. The vampire like look is easily forgivable, Dracula (if I remember right [memory fuzzy, just woke up]) was actually supposed to mean "son of the devil".
