Clutching at what is mine
No control, left to lose
Bridges I've been dreaming are coming down
They're changing my future
Visions I have buried underground
Return us our futures
- "Crush" by Pendulum
Anakin Skywalker from Star Wars (sliding into the Dark Side here...), with another quote from the ROTS novelisation that seemed really metaphorical and foreshadowing - the full line is from Count Dooku's inner monologue ("There was a thermonuclear furnace where his heart should be, and it was burning through the firewalls of his Jedi training. He held the Force in the clench of a white-hot fist. He was half Sith already, and he didn't even know it.") idk, I just really liked it!
The concept looked a lot better in my head before I actually started drawing... sigh... =_= but also experimenting with some custom Painter brushes (this Zen Watercolour set, it's really awesome!), no textures were used this time to make the background/textured effect!
And a lot of Pendulum songs fit Anakin pretty well, ahaha... <falls into lava pit of feelings AGAIN>

"lava pit of feelings?" That part of the description fits the character pretty well XD
COME JOIN ME IN THE LAVA PIT WHERE WE WILL BURN IN FEELINGS AND CRY FOREVER

also... I love how he kinda looks sad. (((
SRSLY THE AMOUNT OF TIMES I'VE FALLEN INTO IT WE SHOULD JUST INSTALL A DIVING BOARD
and thank you so much!! omg hands actually are a massive headache for me and I have no idea how to do them either (so I'm glad it looks okay!! XD) - I always have to use my own hand or grab someone else's hand for reference ahaha (so basically stay away from me while I'm drawing if you don't want to become a conscripted hand model... ) HANDS HOW DO U WORK
(and yes... I always end up drawing Ani looking a bit sad ;_; I AM A TERRIBLE PERSON)

And that book is one of my favorites, so any quotes make this deviation even more awesome.
Everything just looks awesome.
