Berserk by Jackolyn Berserk by Jackolyn
"In this world, is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcendental entity or law? Is it like the hand of God hovering above? At least it is true that man has no control; even over his own will."

--

New obsession time! And this time it isn't a movie, or actor, it's a manga! I know, I'm totally out of my element here, but holy $h!t, I love this manga.

It's called Berserk, and this fellow you see above you is known as Gatsu (or Guts) the main character of the series.
I would go on to describe him, but it's a little difficult to explain to the average viewer of my artwork, so I will just suggest that you read the manga (or watch the anime) yourself to find out.

This is on scratch board, the PERFECT medium to work with for this manga, imagine every panel looking like that. It's epic. So I had one hell of a time finding which image I wanted to start off with, and I went with this one which you can find here: [link]
It took me just under 3 hours, a really short amount of time, considering I haven't done any scratch board in FOREVER.

So, ranting and raving aside, here it is. Please comment and let me know what you think! =D

Scratch board + Berserk = a perfect combination. You are incredibly talented. Nicely done.

And I know, that anime left off at the worst/best part of the series. I get upset every goddamn time I watch it for ending where it does.

Berserk is the only manga that I've ever read, and probably the only one I will ever read.
But it is amazing :XD:

This is cool. You copied Miura's image extremely well, so hats off to you!

I have been wanting to redraw a few panels myself, in a cartoon-y style, haha. Like when Guts first busts out the Dragon Slayer, right after the Eclipse.
