Holy CMYK Batman! My first big cover!

The original piece of art, though beautiful, didn’t really fit into EGM’s new lemon-lime clean and punchy style. I did some massive color work and lightened up Misturugi’s face. Underneath that red Kabuki eyeshadow lies a pretty intense Japanese man waiting to be unleashed… if it weren’t for those darn muddy shadows! I cleaned up his face, whitened his eyes, and slapped on a crystal glow onto his sword. I believe the crystal glow was modeled after the sheen of Soul Edge… so at least I’m within the boundaries of accurate lore.
