A Grave Situation by Altalamatox A Grave Situation by Altalamatox
Borrowed *Mangakawa's Mortimer once again for use of his badassery in a painting with gratuitous amounts of blue ghost smoke and drama!

One of my favorite things I've done in a while. Although this may well have to do with the subject matter. >_>

For anyone else who'd like to tell us Mort in my style looks like an even cross between Ben and Cornelius I have now said it for you. Peace and love.

Ahem... enough of the caps lock.... Beautifully done! I love the simplicity and at the same time, the grand monochromatic play of light. Gorgeous!

I see it too. I think I managed to put the grippy part higher than it should be and the way his hand curves around it makes it look curved. Faaar too thick a blade for the rapier it's supposed to be as well.

yea it's part which way the blade is pointing in terms of how the hand is positioned.

Even with the sight Ben/Cornelius-iness, he's still very recognizably Mortimer! I knew who it was even before I clicked on it. (Then I saw the title and I really knew who it was.) XD

I can imagine he took a drag off that cigarette as part of striking that fighting pose. Just like Dale Gribble. *shishaahhhh*

It's so dynamic and flowing, the smoke looks great and that sigarette just makes a great contrast to the cold blue.

The cigarette made me chuckle a little. It adds quite a bit of epicness to the picture. XD Also I enjoy the difference between the ghostly wispies and the cigarette smoke.

But you already knew that. :D

I think Mortimer appreciates someone out there drawing him looking all badass; heaven knows his own creator only very rarely portrays him in any kind of real action. As it is, I still need to design his sword properly (though I like what you've got here).

Mort says thanks for letting him drop by and for the great portrait, and we're both glad you had a good time with this.
He's such a ham. No wonder the old fella keeps migrating into other peoples' brainspaces.
