What if Gaius modeled underwear...?
Thanks to "Drawing with Jazza" on YouTube, I've been studying the male figure and hands; two subjects I never quite got the hang of when I took my first and last art class in junior high. (That was back in the day when there were no cell phones and digital art was unheard of.)
Gaius is graceful, and I wanted the lines to flow well. His pose is both fluid and unmoving. His clothes are both tight and loose and he's draped in light and shadow. A bunch of contradictions here, but above all this 2D character is fit and gorgeous. He's walking towards the camera like he's about to do a hair commercial and he knows he's beautiful. I'm a sucker for all things beautiful.
