The Assassin by Qinni The Assassin by Qinni
*edit* Sorry, I just fixed some stuff.

"....Another job, another city,
where no one knows my name...
i move amongst the shadows
as silent as the moonlight.
for one unfortunate fellow,
it will be the end, tonight...

This is a reupload D; done july last if you've seen it before..."orz...i didn't steal this D:. i'm just reuploading it from my old account ;_;~

i actually edited the face and according to some suggestions, added the smoke to his cigarete ^^~

I never mentioned this before, but for those who watch me, he's Sky's older brother.....^^~ His name is Hei. it means Black in chinese ^^~.

so art+character (c) *Qinni


edit: original character : D kindly refrain from pointing out how he must be *insert character* with white hair xD;. he's not.

He'd be a very interesting person for a series. :) I love his character design.

He looks like Allan Walker from D-Gray Man.

I actually strained to read those posters lol. I like the way his hair is falling into his face and hiding his eyes; goes with the whole mysterious bounty hunter vibe I'm getting although it's not doing much to hide his Mike Tyson facial tattoo. Good choice on adding the smoke since it's pretty much the only movement going on in this piece. But I gotta nitpick 1) his feet looking a bit small, I'm pretty sure men have longer feet than that and 2) the gun pointing right into his leg just does not seem like a good idea. Achilles tendons are pretty useful when it comes to walking.

oh, it took a while but i just remembered that if you want to critique my more recent stuff though, feel free :D. I love constructive critiques, seriously.
Qinni Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
hahaha, thanks lots! the thing is though this artwork is so old (2007/2008, sketched around 2006), and if i start nitpicking anatomy problems now i'd probably just redo the whole thing because i had so many anatomy problems xDD.

Venom-V13 Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2011
Reminds me heavily of Antonio Banderas' films like The Mariachi, Desperado and Once upon a time in Mexico.....did those inspire this piece?
Qinni Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I've actually never watched any of those, sadly D:. I should though >__<;. it was actually inspired by gunslinger girl, of all things, hahaha. probably not as cool as the films you listed D:.
Venom-V13 Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2011
Lol, oh i see well it seems gunslinger girl and those films i mentioned have much in common but you should see the films though, you'd love them and may get more inspiration!

Dang XD

Still love your stuff. He's pretty cute. I'd probably giggle and run off without an explaination XD

Plus if I met him, I'd probably be unlikely to survive the encounter? My timing is terrible most of the time T.T

I rather adore your character, >w> His design and those guns... *swoon? XD*
guiltone Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2011  Student Digital Artist
The assassin looks very calm, and if he doesn't display his guns, I'll just think that he is a random musician. XD
Well, he must be very agile and stealthy then. I love his hair, it just makes his characteristic more defined. Well, good job, Qinni. Keep going and good luck! ^^V

There's a slight mis-proportion between the guy and his weapons. I just sat down next to my guitar case, and I noticed that it's FAR higher than my head when I'm sitting on the floor. Then, I figured a sniper rifle should be much longer than this and then I noticed that the gun in his hand is much bigger than the ones in the case.

Sure, it's not anything you've made recently, so I can't be sure you'd learn anything from this comment, but I thought I'd mention it anyway, just in case.

Also, about the "*insert character* with white hair" bit - He reminds me of a character that already had white hair. But hey - Generic bishounen anime character is generic.

By the way, where's the quote from? It sounds so familiar.

This is one of my favourite pictures that you've done. I think it was the one that prompted me to follow you on DA. :)
I've always loved the colour and the light play. The gun disassembled in the cello case and the detail in the ground and the brick behind the character. I love his casual pose and apparent devil-may-care attitude, staring at the world as if he's saying, 'come and get me.'

It looks great! :) :heart: :+fav:
