okay I'm sure not nervous as hell to submit this wow this is my first time doing this hahahaha -curses under my breath

Mmmmm, OK! This is my entry for the :iconoperation-requiem: contest and my theme is: Victory
The piece was created by my fascination towards Eren's anger about fighting to break those walls and those chains that bind them to live in fear yeah cool

Insight: (note: okay I love snk too much so this is a bit long so refer to the accentuated parts)
Well, it was a bit hard to choose the theme mainly because I find that Eren is the embodiment of hope, but I envision hope as an immense amount faith and strength found from despair; which means to say that this piece is a borderline between victory and hope.

After many days of drawing (aka tears, blood and sweat) this piece, it seems more fitting to place the theme of victory to the most degree there - not as a successful resolution of the conflict, but more of an advancement towards victory. Obviously the flag, the sun rising, and walls crumbling are pretty straightforward since that all sums up to what humanity desires, and that is to live in harmony with the outside world. Like mentioned in the story, the only way to achieve victory is for humanity to work together as a whole, which is where Eren comes in (yay) - he's basically an asset towards this goal because him having to fight for humanity comes with a huge amount of trust and belief from the society; in other words, a Messiah (in reference to 30 seconds to mars - This is war) which is why he's the flag bearer. I'll leave the rest of the thinking to you, because it can vary.

well that was lame

But this is why I love this anime too much: the irony - but that's for another day.

Please consider buying a copy of this fanartbook though! All proceeds will go the Charity: Water group!
I know for a fact that the guest artists participating in this project are amazing!  i really look up to a good portion of them ahhhh

I don't know why but I've been drawing too much Erens it needs to stop
Probably not going to draw him for a while haha 
I had a a lot of fun drawing this - and also a lot of self development so that's a good thing
ummm (I have a lot of things to say but I can't express it at the moment haha)

Haha thank you so much! ; v ;
I believe I used a picture of a grunge texture found online that was for free, overlayed the layer and clipped it to the colored area. From then on you can possibly filter it and edit it to camouflage it with the clothes :>
It works for any textures as well!
(I hope you understood what I said, this works for both sai and photoshop ><)

Ooh, that's cool! I would say I would try it out the next time I draw fabric, but I would probably blank out and completely forget everything. Sweating a little...  But still, thank you so much for telling me! Love  If I manage to remember, I would definitely try it out! :happybounce:

Well it's pretty simple once you get the hang of your program :>
You can do a lot of things with the layers and the hues, so I recommend just testing everything out at one point *0*
No problem! Glad to be of some help ; v ; good luck!

Looks like he's about to bite his hand in order to transform, wich is unnecesary since it seems that he already has some wounds.
Still an awesome picture thought.
