"Eban is a somewhat-innocent-looking 15 year-old boy, with red hair, freckles, an angry and slightly lost look in his eyes..."

That was the description that Eric Skillman, the script writer, gave to me. I felt in love with the character from the very first momment.

This started as a panel for the comic pages I am doing, but the bishiestalker part of my brain turned it all into this. It didn't work as panel, but as standalone illustration I am quite happy. I owe one to my brain for this awesome kid :D

"The end begins just as it starts,
And leaves me wondering what we left behind.
So take a step back, will you?"

What I was listening: [link]

DETAIL/close-up of Eban's face HERE:[link]

NOTE: The background wall is a wood texture I barely painted over (sorry for lazyness). Lots and lots of references used. And yes, I've changed my signature AGAIN XD

Tecnichaly the draw is's easy receive the style of the artist mixed with big creatives inspirations. Realy great draw.
The colors too. They were choosed in a right way - the pallete is beautifull!
I specialy liked the orange tones on the hair, and the bullet holes on the back's wood.
Together with the color eyes, a eraly clean blue, that creates a mystique atmosphere to the art.
The exploration of clean and lighted colors shows the talent of the artist, meaninga stylized rewhriting of Barroco's time.
Only the finalization of the hair have sined a little...but thas apologizeable - it's a part of the real artist's style.
Realy great art!

:heart: Yay!
¡Llegó la primavera a tu corazón! XD
Me gusta mucho el personaje y la forma de pintarlo. No creo que el fondo quede mal; es simple, pero yo creo que para este tipo de ilustración ya funciona.
Se nota que te lo has pasado bien haciéndolo... se nota MUCHO. Y eso para mí es muy positivo. Aunque me parece que no es fiereza lo que transmite el personaje... Ya sabes que pienso que transmite yo :iconirapeitplz: XD

Ahora a moverlo por todos los grupos que te he recomendado esta mañana... el siguiente paso será que pongas dos nenes en vez de uno. Pero bueno, por algo se empieza XD

(estoy escuchando la canción que has puesto en los comentarios, me gusta :))

Ea, ¡¡a seguir!! :iconfeelingfreeplz:
