I'm actually have to pat myself on this cause I have never thought I would was able to color this. Even though I know this pic isnt perfect and I know that I a lot of small things could have been fixed due to being impatient and wana just dive in the coloring but I'm learning at least. Everyday I am and I hope I can get exceed my expectations without rushing in the wrong places.

I'm guessing you guys wana know what's Gage's Story or at least a little about him.

Gage is just a project name from founders of a drug that was originally design to control the population in the 1940s. But what they founds was that through testing of the project that the results came to the exact opposite creating something that there was no longer a life expiration and had rapid brain cell growth in certain parts of the brain.

The project then took to a different turn to create a drug to make a private army that could immortal with certain changes to actually control them. Dimming emotional senses and programmed to just follow orders. Other side effects are memory withdrawn with a chemical reaction in the brain if the subjects tries to remember to discourage any emotional break down.

And that's where Gage comes in as a guinea pig. The drug had certain side effects of skin cells deforming and through certain subjects, having withdrawals. Ofcours trying to shut off emotional senses never worked on the subjects and Gage escapes with the prisoners and then realizes that his father cells helped create the drug and was tested on the public already creating a new species.

Sorry if the story doesnt sound worded right xD It makes sense in my head and it's in a WIP.

Btw the other cahracter is Xav who sorta plays Gage's conscience and moral guide through out the story.

Anyway I'm tired, enjoy xD

I have to say bro, the combination of this stunning new take on your art style combined with a very deep back story is simply amazing. It's also somewhat inspirational.

The characters designs and posture shows how much consideration you take in making your characters look less "two dimensional". The intensity on their facial expressions just adds to the dynamic feel of the drawing. You also have a good use of texture effects on the clothing and weapons.

I only wish I could see these two within a very active, chaotic background. A war scene or the middle of a stand off would make sense in a way. Regardless, its amazing work like this that reminds me why I watch your work and inspires me to take my illustrations to a whol new level as well. Keep it up, bro.
