+The Look of Death+ by Red-Priest-Usada +The Look of Death+ by Red-Priest-Usada
Usada drew a man!!! Yes, it's almost unbelievable! I 'm fed up with my stupid blocked sinuses D: and bored with drawing girls only. That's why I drew my character Thanatos- the God of Death to cheer myself up. Yes, he is based on some Greek myths which I love so much.

The scissors he is holding in his hand are in fact his sword they transform into when it comes to fight. Thanatos uses them when he comes to a dying person. He cuts a strip of hair to separate one's soul from the body. Here you can see a red strip which means he wants to take Mizuki's soul with him *Mizuki is a red headed girl, the main character of my story*.

It's hard for me to draw men, hands, scissors (and hands holding scissors are even worse D: ) but I didn't want to give up on making the image the way I wanted. I hope you will like it.

Thanatos design by me

Media: mechanical pencil, Photoshop CS3
Credits: ~jennatalia for the skull brushes ; =night-fate-stock :devfor the texture

I think your hands are wonderful! :D And, have you heard of Gallows Humor? It's a funny web comic about Thanatos & a human girl, Alma. You should check it out since you like Greek mythology! [link] ^_^

I'm so sorry. I checked the link some time ago and I never replied to you. :_;. I feel ashamed.

Thank you so much for showing me this site. I enjoyed reading the comic. I wish I could make a comic as well to portrait my story. Unfortunately, my comic skills suck....

Mixing Greek myths with Japanese style. A very interesting mix.

Hehe, you having trouble with drawing scissors? I think that doesn't suit you very much. Your art is great but try to remember a little creativity. I would of made them scissors a whole lot bigger, shinier and sharper (but that's just me ;P). Skulls everywhere, even on weapons!

Oh my goodness!!!!!! I'm writing a book and it's about a guy name Thanatos (AKA Thana), after the God of Death. Except I didn't use much else about the Greek myths because I wanted to incorporate my own story. Thana also has wings. Amazingly, the art looks almost exactly how I imagined Thanatos. Wow, its wonderful btws.

Most sexiest Thanatos image that I ever seen. He's so hot in your art. XD


Hello, Red-Preist-Usada. I'm a fan of your story "Between the Worlds". It's a nice story. I like it.
(Don't worry about Salior Moon. You just wrote about a story of a girl who was Selene, a goddess of moon. That's not a bad problem.^^)

I usually check your gallery.
I really like to see your arts. It's so beautiful. I mean your OC's pictures. You draw very well.


Cheer up! and Have nice days!





P.S -1
:I'm first reply on deviantART(Really!)
I entryed deviantART, Because I wanna add this comment.(It's true, too!)


P.S 0
:So sorry for my poor English. I have to study more, but this time is for university test. Please understand this poor man.


P.S 1
:Do you have a plan for novelize "Between the Worlds"?
Not a commercial reason, I just wanna see more about "Between the Worlds".
That means, I wanna see more story about it. XD


P.S 2
:Do you have a plan for upload "OC Eos- chara design"?
I like her most in your OC. But there are only chara design of Mizuki, Selene and Helios...
I feel the lack of "OC Eos- chara design"and other OCs.


P.S 3
:Oh, just forget about those two articles. I'm too excited to have a manner.
(snivelling)


p.s 4
:Eh...I can give you some information of Korean Pop. I know some good songs.
Yeah, Those are songs of my country. But...you listening different song now.
Oops...What a bad timing.(Sigh)
If you want some K-pop, I can give you information of some songs. Because those are songs of my country XD


P.S 5
:I'm a rookie on deviantART. That's why I wrote these words are so long.
Is this something like a guestbook on deviantART system?
I can't find a more relevnat text on a subject and an art.
The conclusion, "I'm sorry for too long comment"
