My Existence by Shei99 My Existence by Shei99
YAYY~~ RUNNER UP~~ i think it's like 3rd place? still happy though lol

anyway this is for :iconnyiana-sama: contest Original Character at their best. So i had alot of thinking about which character i can do.............and i wanted to draw Mika cuz i like his character. I went with the scenario "shoot-the-target-then-plunge-out-of-the-top-floors-with-broken-glasses-around-you-while-trying-to-safely-escape-and-land-on-the-ground-without-any-injuries-scenerio" :P He's also a character in another manga project i though up lol. I think i'm going to focus on that one more than the old one cuz i like the storyline better. This is like a good practice for BG drawing too lol..first time i drew city :P

Anyway Mika is an assassin but he wasn't borned as one. He's actually not really a...a person in a sense. He actually come from another world, a world that exist side by side with human worlds and many other worlds. He's was "created" as a "replacement" for a woman that lost her son by the husband who can't watch his wife suffer anymore. The son name was Michael, and Mika is the perfect copy of him, down to his face, personality. But when the mother saw him, she rejected him and called him a monster, saying no one can replace her son. So because Mika was rejected he was sold and sold away on the black market as slave to a rich politician because that's something that's common on the other side.
Because Mika's existence was to be Michael, he didn't know what he was living for and hated that he was created. But one day, when his master had guests, Mika met Izumi, the head and the daughter of St. Luchas family, the most well-know among the families of assassins that have influences in both the human world, and the other worlds. Izumi actually is the next head of the St. Luchas and when he met Mika she know he's was "created" because he doesn't feel like a normal person. She told him that instead of lamenting your own fate, carve out one that will make you happy. Even though his role was to be Michael, his own existence now is for himself, not for anyone else. Izumi was the one that gave Mika his nickname "Mika" as to signify that he's not Michael but himself. She also asked her father to accept Mika into the St. Luchas family because she felt that he have great dormant powers inside of him. So now Mika is an assassin that work in the human world, eliminating targets that his clients want. make it short if you don't like reading that long summary lol~ The thing Mika do the best is assassin because when he's in the St. Luchas family, he feel like he belong, that his existence is his own, that he's himself ^ ^

Awesome character design. The background gives a feeling of what type of areas he'd be in, and the constant checkered pattern effect gives an odd sense of misplacement in a way.

The bright blues in this picture are awesome. It really catches the viewers attention and I like how it stands out against the bright reds and yellows. The attention to detail in both the clothing and the hair is also impressive!
