Part one of a two bookmark set for the Industrial Smash Prize Pool of Cool.
This particular ladelful of Awesome Stew goes to second place winner
; bookmark #1 features their character, Jack Masterson, in a fantiddlyastic action pose surrounded by ancient Japanese painting scroll overtones, complete with cherry blossoms! Also features three interchangeable tassle tokens with chibi Jack, ~Ransak-the-Reject's character Kid Kamikaze (the first place winner) and the main boss of Industrial Smash, Neuro!
Originally I was going to have the cherry blossom petals form into blips on a radar screen to emphasize Jack's utilization of futuristic weaponry and strategic thinking, but I think the simplicity of this particular design captures his character better, and is less cluttered .
Apart from some costume discrepancies (because I was an idiot and did the whole thing from memory instead of just looking up a photo reference) involving hair color and Mr. Masterson's trenchcoat, it turned out a heck of a lot better than how I'd thought.
Here's to you,
, I'll try to get the second set up as soon as possible - unitl then, enjoy saving your place in any book by squashing your character between the pages!
