Blade Under Mask Portrait: Tetsuo by White-Mantis Blade Under Mask Portrait: Tetsuo by White-Mantis
The fifth in a series of portraits featuring the Blade Under Mask characters I did to practice some techniques I've been studying from western animation. It's been amazing to draw them all!

This is Tetsuo, a Japanese moon moth (oomizuao) kabuki actor.

I like this one because of the strength (or lets say you just know, the movements are the way they should be :P I don't really know how to express what I mean, sorry :S ) in the shown movements, and the colors are great.
May I ask anyway, what exactly kabuki is?

I love the entire series! Each painting is just magnificent but...I'm such a Tetsuo fan! I love this!!!!
So graceful in the movements and the entire character design! I really like all the warm lighting and the soft shading.
So very professional like the concept art of a animated movie! No even better: MOVIE POSTERS!
Really all your characters are so unique and this is such a fantastical idea! This whole series of illustrations has blow.me.away!

'seriedade'... oque vejo no rosto dele.. cada vez que vejo alguma arte mais vontade tenho de saber sobra a historia! TwT
mas se fosse o definir apenas pelo visual diria que me parece serio,bem disciplinado,focado.... mas nao posso julgar nada so de olhar...
Akari-Akazaki-(Smirk-and-Cries)-[Yuri-Yuri]  um dia! saberei mais sobre sua historia
