PS painting from pencil sketch
asked me about entering this contest her BF Demogrim
was doing for his OC Grimstone fav.me/d7eujl1
This one is my first two entries - the kopesh and the scythe-axe. The styling is in the direction of what I felt the character required.
For my own personal tastes I would have done the handles as more bone-like, in color, but I felt that wasn't what he was looking for.
The red was definately based on his choices for his OC so that too is character based. But I like red so no problem there.
It is an interesting thing to design based on perceived notions rather than specific information given to you.
