Not far until my 4th anniversary on AnimePaper (16th July) so I thought that a wall would be perfect for this ocassion. Actually started a another one - should be beach themed, but after some arguments in shoutbox, I entered a walling duel with Maria-Sakura. Since that one was not fulfilling the duel requiremnts, I made this one instead.
Since it was missing some parts, I vectored Ikaros in full. Lineart was kinda hard, due I needed change my usual straight lineart style and do a more random lineweight, to simulate the beaten-up armor feeling. Used countless of radial gradients to make it less-flat. Background made with modified asphalt pattern and the perspective changed to make a more deep prison cell. Light also changed to light blue to more match with the armor itself. Colors washed out a bit, of course on purprose :3
