Realistic Guts: The Black Swordsman
« on: February 07, 2019, 04:29:44 PM »
Colored and did some post-production work to one of my favorite pieces of Berserk fan-art out there. The original is a black & white piece by David Müller. However, I wanted to try my hand at making Guts even more realistic by removing brush strokes whilst preserving the original art, and adding a Berserk logo on top to make it look more like a promotional piece.

For fun, I've also ordered a framed print of the art to see how it will look next to all my Berserk collectibles.



It's also over on my DeviantArt, here: https://www.deviantart.com/pixelsbecrazy/art/The-Black-Swordsman-Colored-784503213
And here is the original: https://www.deviantart.com/kopfstoff/art/The-Black-Swordsman-622688923

I'm thinking of trying my hand at his Griffith as well, to have the pair, of course.

I wouldn't call it photorealistic but it looks great. Good job!

Looks fantastic. The minimal presentation with the logo also really works in its favor.   :ubik:

Wonderful work, Yummy! I think you really built on the original without taking anything away from it. I like how you worked in some spots of yellow and pink, it definitely helps it feel more fleshed out. :guts:

This enhances the more washed out aesthetic of the original piece, making everything pop nicely. As far as shading and color palette goes I think you've done an amazing job.

Thanks for all the feedback!! :iva: I actually ordered a print of it to see how it turns out. I'll share for sure when that comes in.

Are you thinking of doing this to David Muller's Griffith drawing?

Yes! I'm definitely thinking he needs a companion piece. I'm always a fan of series work when it comes to art. A lot of my own artwork I try to do in series form. Griffith will be what I tackle next when I can.
