The Goddamn Spiral Nemesis by Quilofire The Goddamn Spiral Nemesis by Quilofire
I love how nobody's reeeeeally certain what his outfit is lol

So I was feeling kinda down on myself last week--idk why, it's really out of character for me--and I was chatting with a friend while simultaneously trying to reread Double K, and then I felt 500% better and drew something to celebrate. It was gonna be something Double K-related but then said friend brought up pirates and then this happened. I really have to go watch Harlock asap lolololol

I'm kinda wishing Gainax had revisited/done more with/explained the original Captain Garlock, but I'm also slightly partial to the one they ended up going with, so I'm not complaining.

This was a couple days of on-and-off work, hindered by the fact that I stared at it all weekend not sure if I wanted to start or not, and that I conveniently have classes and homework. I wish my scanner was better so I don't have to go all-out with everything orz (not that I would have done a halfassed job with this one but I'm just saying)

Also I love spending 634869808462 hours on the background and then deciding that I'm not happy with it, then walking away, then realizing that I forgot to do one thing, rushing back to do it, and liking the background. Yeahhhhhh :thumbsup: (might add more to it or change it eventually, but for today/this week I'm done caring). I also ended up doing the stars by hand after trying 3 tutorials, none of which worked but looked like they would have worked if the canvas was smaller orz. (In the end the hand-drawn effect came closest to what I'd been going for)

I can also draw abs now?

Spam-listened to "Rock You Like a Hurricane" and some stuff from the TTGL soundtrack to get me motivated : D It workedddd

Garlock (c) Gainax

Yes? We think? Gainax never really explained it, but we're pretty sure that's him. o_o

Wait what Harlock
Like, less GAR DACHIKO and more (H)ARRRR MATEYS?

Still this piece is excellent. The explosions need to be more smokey and less round, but that's all the things I don't like about this piece.
ROCK ON, MAGU

HERE BE ENLIGHTENED
That's actually where the nickname Garlock/Starlock/Jerklock/etc comes from

Thanks! They were actually like that in my reference, which was a screencap from the prologue (and it's also just how Gainax does spacesplosions lol)

LAME EXCUSE I KNOW
