Jackal X by falingard Jackal X by falingard
This is an entry for the latest random generator contest over at Seventh Sanctum. This time the theme is Bishies Versus Kitties!

The description, from the Bishotron, was:
"This gentleman gives you the impression of a prowling jackal. His slanted eyes are the color of blooming violets. He has shoulder-length, thick, wavy, midnight black hair. His physical form is very sleek. He has a pointed nose and elegant hands."

The Bishotron is somewhat less detailed than other, more recent generators, so I wasn't getting results I really like! So I asked a friend (a girl! who likes bishies!) to generate a good result for me. And... it worked!

I put the close-up behind him to really show how BOOMING VIOLET his eyes really are. Yes, booming. BOOM. And he's got claws because... that's so elegant!

Ever since I drew him I've had this nagging feeling that he looks similar to an existing anime character, but I can't seem to puzzled out who.

Sweet. He kind of reminds me of a cross between Uryu from BLEACH and Leslie from your Flaky Pastry.

To be honest, the hair and glasses really remind me of Alucard, from the anime Hellsing. Really awesomely done, and congrats on both Runner Up in the contest and the induction into the Hall of Fame over on Seventh Sanctum. ^_^

He looks to me, kinda like Anthy from Utena. But male. XD. Maybe if her 'older brother' dyed his hair darker...I never did end up seeing the rest of the series, so I have no idea what was actually going on there... <.< >.> But yeah. Can't remember his name, so if anyone wants to volunteer, feel free.

I need to start entering Seventh Sanctum's contests...

Anyway, that was slightly off-topic...Congrats! This deserves it! ^_^

Yeah, I hope you understand, but I've realized that even as the scope of entrants changes and grows, I need to make sure that there's some "exit point" for people who win a lot so people feel they have a chance to win.

I do hope we'll keep seeing some "for fun" entries from you. I've so enjoyed following your art from your first entry, and you've only grown in quality and skill over time.

Guess what! You're runner up in the contest! Send me a Note so I know what email to send your gift certificate to!

Also, you are the first person to win my contests three times. So I'm creating a "Hall of Fame" for folks that manage to do that, to acknowledge them and their works.

The only downside is I decided Hall of Fame inductees can't enter future contests except "for fun." That's a way to make sure we keep getting new contestants and the competition changes.

Clever to get his face in close-up in the background. Faces hold so much expression and you can lose that in a full body shot. Nicely done.

Fantastic job! I can definitely picture him as the main character in his own show. =D

The main rule of Utena - you can use your nose to cut glass or open cans!

I also know what oyu mean about the resemblance - because I swear he DOES look familiar. Maybe something in YMN.

I'm not aware of any Utena character with hair and glasses like these, and those are the details that remind me of someone I can't place XD
I agree, though, that his overall design is Utena-ish!

I THINK I figured out what he remidns you of - he looks like some of the characters from Revolutionary Girl Utena.

If I were superstitious, I would be tempted to devour your soul to glean your coloring skill.... 'S good thing I'm not :lmao: Instead, I'll look up this w/ envy and think, "One day... I'll pay someone to be that good for me." =D

He reminds me of someone, but then again most bishonen look the same to me. Still, I really dig the look of this one. It's got all the elements that definitely make it one of your creations. (The pointy nose is especially nice.)

Good show, good sir.

(I haven't completely forgotten that we need to trade sometime. I've just been going crazy with my new job. Sorry! ^^; )
