This is the final inking of the previous rough. After going about inking the rest of the picture, and even adding a background and other additions, I scanned the picture in.
After doing the usual cleaning of digitally getting rid of any ghost, dented in and other unwanted lines and areas, I then proceeded to improve the picture by carefully selecting the veins and other lines I found to be too dark. I also alleviated other areas that were either too busy or dark.
The head was especially busy with an attempt at doing some kind of eye markings. In the end, though I would like to keep the eye marks, yet the darkness was a bit much and I lightened the lines in the same manner as I did for the veins beforehand, alleviating the busyness while maintaining the vision I had at hand while making the final touches to the picture. ^\/^.
The background was drawn in the style of a simple dojo with mats on the ground. The picture in the background in what seems like a hallway is in the style of the fake language I continue to dabble in, the Adlerian language. The picture of the mountain is common since I picture the kingdom of Adleria to be particularly mountainous with many deep valleys and meadows, with steep cliffs and mountains whose tops are sharp and still young, geologically so to speak.
I added borders on the bottom of the wall to give it realism since many walls have those border things at the bottom. I alternated the lines so I would not make plaids. I, instead, ended up with what looks to be paneling in the walls. At the end of the borders, I drew the end lines a slight off more than the upper part to give it a sense of thickness.
At the bottom of the picture, since the foot was rather close to the edge, I added some length to the picture and used the Photoshop stamp / clone tool that I use to clean my pictures to add nonexisting paper. ^\/^.
Besides the addition of the eye markings, the most noticeable addition I made to the figure is the addition of the long ponytail with a tuft ending of long hair. Between the tuft and regular ponytail is a what I intend at being a metal hair band. I was going for a look that is similar to the long ponytails that some martial artists and samurai had at one time, but with a style and look as to make it different.
The reason is that this goat is of a species, or race, I made up called the Capricorns and are one of several different species and races descendent of the old Atlantean empire. D. Dan's main nemesis, Sanakuma, is an immortal Capricorn from before the fall of Atlantis (yes, Sanakuma is that old). However, the Capricorns are not an evil race and the one pictured is a regular mortal who follows traditions dating back to Atlantis. ^\/^.
Overall, I like how this picture turned out considering how long it has been shelved (nearly a year). The only thing I am not sure about is the right hand. Sure, one can bend it like that, but I wonder if it is even a natural movement. Also, I am not sure about any Pankration nor martial arts movements beyond what I can imagine. I just wonder if either twists the hand like that. LOL. ^\/^.
Lastly, for fun, I added a tattoo on his left shoulder to make him look more cool looking. It is a double sided axe, like from the minotaur legends and a symbol found on the palaces of old from Crete from the heroic age of Greece. ^\/^.
