OK! Spoiler Arlert alert. If you haven't read chapter 49 of Shingeki no Kyojin manga (oh, how I envy you...), this is a spoiler. You have been warned. There is also blood and gore here, so, you know, be cautious?
Anyway, meet Commander Erwin "Badass" Smith. Oh, missing an arm? Tis but a scratch! Forward!!!
I mean, really guys, this manga. I can't deal with it sometimes. It's like they do it on purpose, they hit us where it hurts so much, just to see us cry and wail in misery. And we're constantly coming back for more. It's crazy, I tell ya.
I needed to calm my feels after that chapter, so that's why I drew this. It was supposed to be a quick sketch, but, meh... I got carried away. l also bought a new Intuos 5 pen tablet (I had an Graphire 3, gods, it's so old 8D) and it's amazing and l had to try it out, so yeah. I had fun with this picture. I thought about coloring it but I don't have time now (and I have new ideas for pictures, and 22nd episode happened, and Jean is being his usual pessimistic self, and l have feels, and I need to draw him, like, now. So, sorry Danchō, no colors for you this time 8D).
Anyway, I'm really happy how this came out, I had a lot of fun drawing this, especially his severed arm. This sounds so gruesome, but... I kind of made it to be a really clean cut, I realize that his arm was bitten off by a titan, however, I like to think that when his soldiers killed it, his muscles were ripped to shreds and his bones were crushed, but the arm was not completely severed yet, and he's all "We need to go after them!", and his men are like "No, you are injured, we need to retreat!", and he's like "Nonsense"!, and he tourniquets his arm and then takes his sword and cuts the rest of the injured limb off and is all "Now, FORWARD!"". He's that badass. So that's why the cut is clean and there is blood on his sword 8D
That's all, I'm really happy with this picture, and I hope you'll like it too! ♥
