Cowboy Bebop: Spike Spiegel. Realism. by DjamilaKnopf Cowboy Bebop: Spike Spiegel. Realism. by DjamilaKnopf
EDIT: When I woke up this morning I wasn't really satisfied with it anymore. The colours were a bit too dull and the whole thing looked flat. So I worked on it again. I hope those of you that already faved it, still like it. (:

I appreciate all of your kind feedback. Thank you so much. <3
______________________________

I've had a lot of fun with the portrait of Toph. So I decided to paint a real life version of Spike, my all time favourite anime character of all time. I need to watch Cowboy Bebop again. :3

Maybe I'll draw the others as well. Jet might be fun. :D

You can support my personal project PHANTASMA and get rewards with each new illustration.

+ step-by-step walkthroughs
+ layered .psd-files
+ artwork in high resolution

Thank you! Selling prints of fanart on deviantart is not allowed, but maybe somewhere else. But right now, I don't have anything planned.

Got here from your feature on DeviantArt's Facebook, but then realized that I was already familiar with your art ^^
I absolutely love this Spike! 
I hope you'll never stop drawing again and that you will always enjoy it. Cheers from Dublin 💛

My only criticism is that he looks a little too young. Spike isn't old by any means, but he has a hardness to some of his facial features that you wouldn't find in a younger, less experienced person. Apart from that (which is just my opinion anyway, really) it's great!

Thanks! You're right. If I were to repaint this today I would make him look as if he's been through some stuff.
