Comatose by nazzba Comatose by nazzba
     Slowly the reality crept back to Kenji through the haze of the narcotics. With all his strength Kenji forced himself to open his eyes, but he couldn’t see anything the first few moments. Shadows danced like demons over the walls and the ceiling. Pale lights seeped into his view from the hallway through an only half shut door into his room. He could hear silent voices from far, but he couldn’t understand a word.

     His room? Was it really his room? His paralyzed mind could rationalize only with effort that it was neither his own bedroom, nor the damp, cold basement room. He didn’t know where he was, but slowly he remembered what happened.


I needed a preview picture for my next chapter and also to warm up for my next commission. ;)

Forgive me Kenji I know I treated you bad :hug:


____________________________________________________________________________

Kenji is mine :katana:

Kenji did grow up with a sword in his hand. Fighter by body and soul he did went through a hard school since the age of 4 and lived a life as assassin after he finished his education. He killed the first time at the age of eight, his fellow students during the final exam, and murdered his master at the age of 14. 
His way did lead him as beggar and homeless on lonely pathes and by that almost into his own death. 

But his path as warrior didn't end even when he laid dying in fewer and deadly injured. As vampire he wandered through many countries and found his way to the vampire Clan Torenjha. He settled there and made his way up from a plain soldier to a respected commander. He was known for his discipline and self-control and learned to choke back emotions to be able to deal with violence, torture and cruelty. 
However the only friend he found strangely was amongst his enemies. On the streets a cold warrior he was a loyal and very warmly caring friend to Sasa, the only real friend he ever had.

He looks so mellow and calm here.  I like the way the lighting is done and the shading of his skin is beautiful.  You did a fantastic job on him.  The more I see, the more I want to know the character.  I am definitely going to be making time soon. :)

Thank you so much!
For more about him I just could recommend you to read the main story, else I would say, you have to wait for more pictures with him, what will definitely come ^^
I'm happy you like this little arrogant bastard, he can be pain in the ass so much, so better to have him sleeping like this xD

There are MANY who hate his sharp tongue, there are only a few who can go along with. Like his former "slaves", his former Narusz, Jevelin and Danila, who were more his friends than his slaves. Wolf sometimes was close to smack Kenji's face, but he could always forgive him, well they are friends ^^
Sasa and Kenji as best friends are too close to mind each other's flaws and edges, just Marius who has an uneasy past with Kenji is the only one Kenji does tame his tongue with. Not only due to their past, but also because Kenji respects Marius as his leader and accepts his own lower rank.

lol It sounds like Kenji has a good sense of where he can push things and where he can't.  He also sounds like a character I would love to pieces. :giggle:

Despite his sharp tongue he always stays fair with others and he knows that he can't go with Marius like he can with others. Well he not cares what common soldiers think about him, he does have the command over them and expects their obedience, and the least he does want them to think is that he is a nice guy. However he had to learn to be like he is today, as otherwise he would have never made it to a Commander in the past, being by body a teenager and being much smaller than many of these European hunks he had under his command, so he grew into this as well :XD:

Von all deinen Bilder gefällt mir das hier am besten. Warum auch immer erinnern mich die Farben an Stillleben von Paul Cézanne. Leicht impressionistisch angehaucht. Druckst du deine Bilder auch aus?

Danke dir! Das hier ist eines meiner Speedpaints, ca 2 oder 3 Stunden, um eine kleine Szene aus dem Leben meines Charakters Kenji zu illustrieren. 
Ich habe mal ein paar Bilder drucken lassen, aber in der Regel drucke ich sie nicht aus, das wäre etwas viel Papier ;)

Naja aber ich find es viel besser, wenn man es in der Hand halten kann. Ich muss meine meistens eh als Poster drucken lassen, weil sie jemand gekauft hat. Da bekommt man einfach wieder ein Gefühl von Kunst die man nicht nur auf einem Bildschirm sieht.

Es ist schön Wenn du mir deinen Bildern Geld verdienen kannst, das kann nicht jeder. Ich sehe meine Bilder Aber nicht wirklich als seriöse Kunst, deswegen würde ich sie nie nur für mich als Poster drucken, so viele Wände habe ich gar nicht xD

He looks so vulnerable here, I love it... then I feel bad that I love it because he is so vulnerable here!))

I really like the soft glow round him it is real peaceful then.

*cuddles unconscious Kenji gently so as not to add to his injuries* so cute....

I know that feeling, I had it all time during drawing. Kenji can be annoying, exhausting and arrogant bastard and often he causes the wish in others to slap his face and beat his damn arrogance out of him.... But then seeing him like this somehow feels bad and makes my heart bleed. 

You know that scene, it was one of the hardest to go through with him... ^^;

Wow. Just... WOW! :wow: There's so much about this picture, and I have only such a small set of words to describe it. Even with the range of words I have at disposal, nothing is really fitting. :heart:

There is something about his face here that just tugs at your heart. So vulnerable...

At this point of the story vulnerable truly is the word which would describe him best. I decided to draw that scene of the next chapter as it was the most intense I had in front of my eyes, seeing him laying like this and I'm quite happy with the outcome ^^
