Counter piece to --

This would be Urchigi [Urchigi (yur-chee-gee)] -- fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/f/201…
He's an old character of mine and he's meant to be something of a transforming [African] Shaman and a head hunter (even if he turns into a wolf... the hell? It made sense in my head) and he has the power to control and make others into real zombies (not the Hollywood kind) through dark practices.
Hence why the title is "Obedience".

I kind of guessed on the bones and looked in a book as well as online for references soooooo, if they're wrong, sorry :XD: Anatomy forsakes me sometimes.
Last image with my old watermark on it... next image will be a commission with my new watermark on it :D

I wouldn't have actually searched for something like this, but I saw it on the home page and was confused by it. The picture was so small I couldn't tell if it was a wolf or a human or....a monster. lol
So I had to come here and blow up the picture to see. I gotta say, I love how its wearing that human skull. And how its all chained and stitched together. Like the jaw. 8D this is some amazing stuff. You've got one hell of an imagination.

Hey Ninja! Just curious, but, in your opinion, If you used Gimp do you think you would be able to make your art as awesome as this?

NinjaKato Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2013
Hey, I have used Gimp but it's not an easy program to work with on a laptop as it seems to take up a lot of space and lags like crazy. I actually just re-downloaded (and then uninstalled) it the other day to try it out again but it just lagged too much. 
Anyway, to be honest with you given the right time and patience anyone could make a drawing 10x better than this with Gimp, heck, I'm sure people already have! Could I? Maybe, if the program didn't lag like crazy and I had the time to learn it :)

oh alright! Thank you for replying! 
I have no other option to use Gimp, as Sai is not downloadable on a Mac. You're to right about the lagging, it overheats my laptop at times as well. 
I was just very curious, as I have heard Sai is a much better program.. Figured I would ask a professional! Thanks again for replying :D

No problem, I try to reply to questions when I can catch them ^^; 

I think SAI is available for Macs now... my friend has it so I'll ask her where she got it. 
Ugh, it just makes my laptop sound like it's going atomic or something ;_; I had it 2 times now and it almost killed my laptop and lagged something fierce. Not sure if it's just my laptop or what but I got it from the official site so... who knows, haha!

SAI is a really good program, simple to use but very nice. 
There IS a free option that should work for a Mac, ever heard of FireAlpaca? -- firealpaca.com/en it works pretty similar to SAI and doesn't lag like Gimp either. It's also free!
Give it a try, you may like it :) I've got it on my computer and I use it sometimes.

Ah alright! 
Gimp is nice that it's free and all, however my computer is so small, it's not really meant for big laggy programs like Gimp. It's been slower since I got it as well.

And dfkjgdhkf holy crow I adore this Alpaca download! I've never heard of it, but this GREAT. My goal was to find a program with tablet pressure, as I couldn't get that to work on Gimp. Thank you so much, this was a huge help! <3'

The texture and colour on the bone is fantastic. It gives the piece a real rustic feel, along with the vibrant natural colours of the feathers. Overall a very nice piece. Very shaman-like xD
