I get to post something new again. And about time too.
The post-work was obviously the biggest portion of time, the tattoo being the biggest time hog. This is also the first time I've got my figment, Tora's hair right. Gingery/ coppery red hair is very tough to paint, but with a bit of help from some reference, I think I finally got it licked!
Here we see Tora, my Caucasian Japanese Yakuza, when he was a bit younger. Obviously deep in the jungle on some military mission or another, having done something rather nasty to someone and likely about to continue to do something even nastier to the person he's gazing at rather... er... intently.
Loads of fun details in this one (I had fun doing all sorts of splatters and blobs), which you'll see if you click to make it larger.

Reposted comment: The Hair - spot on perfect! Every luscious bit of this lovely plaything is glorious, reason I love me some men! Yes I do! Hey, not a whole lot more to say other than, you ROCK and dangit, you know it! Arrogant brute, turning out nothing but total masculine beauty! I love it!
Well worth the wait and as stunning as I knew it would be. It's great to see Tora developing into a real, emphatic presence and your attention to detail is just the best. That tattoo work is the best I've ever seen, truly. Well done my wonderful friend!
Thanks to everyone that has commented. It's very encouraging. I am rather happy with how this came out. For something that started more as an off the cuff sketch, it blossomed into something more than I ever would have thought. I'm not done with Tora by a long stretch, but I think something with less tattoo next! n_n
