Gangster-Mobster Swordsman by cpi Gangster-Mobster Swordsman by cpi
A quirky pic, inspired by the Matrix, Rob Dougan's Clubbed to Death, and one of the pics my friend :icondragonlady212: did, that triggered a muse moment for me.


When doing this pic, i felt compelled to draw upon elements from the Roaring 20's to the Early 50s, of gangster/mobster style clothes. I added in a fedora to look cool, along with other clothes from the period, along with the sleek trenchcoat.



The swords were just something that came to mind, when this pic reminded me of the Neo-Noir Look and feel that the Matrix and Rob dougan's Clubbed to Death music video inspired. And before i forget, download the Clubbed to Death music video and the song in its Kurayamino Variation, if you really wanna see where i got some of the inspirations for this pic.

The clothes are very well done, esecially the pants (I have had some difficulty nailing the realism on my own)

THe pose and blades are cool too. :D

Well, definately he is a black wearer. I would do some red in that, and as for the background, I would like it if you did something with that... either a picture for the background, showing where he is , or some kind of object of image or design that is symbolic of who he is as a character. He looks like a dark character if you ask me.

You're absolutely right. Hmmmm......I know, I'll add a pic of the Matrix Mega City landscape in the background, since the movie did inspire the pic to a great degree. And as for the color scheme, thanks!!!^_^

O_O really? You run around the urban landscape, with two swords in hand, wearing a trenchcoat and a fedora and other articles of clothes(I'm assuming you're not doing this in the nude of course, unless that was the idea....)? That's cool.
