Have a Mind-Blowing Birthday! by StellarWind Have a Mind-Blowing Birthday! by StellarWind
So it's May 12th, and of course you realize this means birthday, specifically :iconsilvermonki:'s!

And since I am made of awful puns - here’s Goro Majima (of the Yakuza/Ryū ga Gotoku series) and Marvin-chan (a zombie and a bit of a running gag concerning the non-canon zombie spinoff, Yakuza: Dead Souls/Ryū ga Gotoku OF THE END)… doing their usual thing. I bet he didn’t expect a flag gun… and I bet even more that he didn’t expect that it can still shoot (because let’s face it, wouldn’t be a Majima/Marvin-chan pic if he DIDN’T get his head shot at least at SOME point)… Then again, Marvin-chan’s expectations usually begin and end with “Brains”, so that’s a bit of a moot point. XD

But yes - happy birthday, and have an awesome year! ^_^

Someone has to be. XD Personally I'm not a fan of the guns and have little interest in the things - but the shotgun in question is Majima's 'signature' weapon in Yakuza: Dead Souls and was referenced from both official art and the ingame model. Apparently it's some kind of a SPAS-12 that has been modified to also accept magazines or something. I have no idea how feasible this actually is - but again, not at all a gun person. XP

I saw this on my phone via Twitter (as I'm sure you're aware) but I had to see it in the grander scheme of things and wow.  Stell you have done such a great job on Marvin-chan!! (and of course Goro.. how'd you get his jacket looking so accurate? XD Man, I just chicken out and use textures.. *lazy*).  This is so cool, I love it. XD The fact that it's a flag gun and then oh wait, it can still fire bullets. XDD
Speaking of the gun.  Holy schnit, that is some impressive work on it! :faint:

THANK YOU! This picture is the D.B in Yakuza Dead Souls fan art to me. XD Sums up Majima so well and always lovely to see Marvin-chan in other styles. <3
Wah, I'm on the edge of spamming you with praise and just squee.  So...

Squee! Squee! Squee! Squee! 
Thank you! :smooch:

You're very welcome - I'm glad you like it ^___^

As for how I got the textures? same way as I got them on my last big picture - found a reference snakeskin texture, made various adjustments to it (mostly so it would be texture with as little discoloration as possible), applied warp where necessary to match the texture to the curves and prevent it from looking static - and used assorted forms of shading to get everything to mesh together. ^^ The joys of digital art saving one the need to draw thousands of dots on a snakeskin coat. XD

:icondatemasamuneplz:: ... Dots? 8D POLKA DOTS?!

I lurve it. (and you for going to this much effort/patience for lil' ol' me!)
Ahh, I see. X)  I wonder if there's a snakeskin texture for Manga Studio... xD;  Failing that, Goro Majima may be forever in that Grumpy Bear hoody.  Much to his discomfort. XD

(And of COURSE the Masamune had to add in his two cents worth. Da fuq? XD)

I dunno how textures work in Manga Studio, alas - I just dig up texture images from online sources (as a google search) import them into the image, as their own layer, and then it's a game of manual adjustments and modifications to make it blend rather than look tacked on. xD Although hey, grumpy bear hoodies are always grood.

Of course, now I'm picturing Arslan and Majima, both in grumpy bear hoodies, being vastly confused about it... XD

Haha, makes two of us.  I don't fully understand them either.... x)  Ha! You know I'm going to draw that now, the grumpy bear hoody posse.  Mind you, I have plenty of glorious hoodies in the wardrobe... I wonder who'll get what. *plotting grin*
