Aqualad's makeover... by cheeks-74 Aqualad's makeover... by cheeks-74
...or not! HAHAHA

Actually this is my Darkstalkers' tribute.
I love this property so much it hurts.

Out of the slew of characters his design was visually striking to me at first glance (of course I love all the other designs, too!!! :)) due to the color combination, and huge-@$$ fins everywhere. HAHAHA

I couldn't resist drawing him as my tribute.

The Darkstalkers Tribute Book is dropping at the Anime Expo in Los Angeles so that means we all get to post the work we did for it.

You can pick up the Con-Exclusive Hardcover from the UDON booth at any of the following Conventions:

July 2-5 - Anime Expo in Los Angeles
July 17-19 - Otakon in Baltimore
July 23-26 - Comicon International in San Diego
August 28-20 - Fan Expo Canada in Toronto
September 4-6 - Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle

Here's the [link] for the juicy scoop.

Hope y'all digs!

Wait a sec... You're the guy that my professor told me to emulate in my character design class, and you're requesting a critique? Everything I've seen you do is either pure gold, or the kind of happy mistake that makes your art awesome to begin with. Keep on truckin', man.
