Ryan by J-Harper Ryan by J-Harper
Ryder's father. Gave him different markings, since Ryder's became pretty much identical. I like it a lot more now; it's more realistic. And yes, I spilled Ginga on my style... I've been binge watching both series, so I guess that's what happens. I think it looks nice though, and it's fun.

Also, he's getting a backstory, role and personality change - so forget everything I've ever said about him. Not that I've said a lot, anyway. Mostly just the abusive thing, but I'm changing that too. It's so cliche it hurts.

So is he... NICE to his wife and Ryder, if he ever sees Ryder. Seems you intend to kill him and his wife now that he became a nice guy, making Ryder go all Bruce Wayne.

I have to say, I love this look for him, looks like a tough old bastard, military guy. That scared out eye is a nice touch too. I can see the splash of Ginga influence, I have to admit, I like it a lot for this piece.

So how is John such a emotional basketcase? Since much of his father's treatment made him who he is? :)

Actually his personality and emotions have little to do with how Ryan treated him.

I was gonna say, did you just throw Akabuto, Hougen, Gin and Riki at the guy and merge em XD
He looks so much for original now, and certainly a figure to be feared. Can't wait to see what you do with him from here,
Hurhurr lookit the grey x3

Thank you.
It's only the mouths that I apply the style to, I believe. Eyes are similar, but I was already drawing them that way.

must agree, the mouth as drawn in GDW is really unique, especially because they often have it opened like this

I'll be waiting for the backstory then. I love it when characters are "deeper" than the mary sue cliche :D

So is Ryan getting a complete reboot or are you keeping some things the same?

Well, some things will probably remain the same, but I can't say what just yet.
