to draw his character SSS Ziro
into a normal human being.
The guidelines for the contest is quite tricky, specially the "Do not stray off from the design of SSS Ziro but don't stick to it either"
Thinking that other possible participants might go the route that i was thinking they might go i swerved and took a more oriental approach on thinking of a design. The thought of going oriental was fueled by the barb wires from the original design which i then turned to that part on the top clothing. I included an easter egg on that part too (which got lost in resizing the image), the top clothing fastener spells S-S-S-Z.
I was supposed to do something different with the background but i am out of time due to the other things i focused within May and yet again experimenting on coloring styles while doing this.
The name Ling
is Mandarin for "Zero". I was originally going to use Zhi Ro
to make it sound like Zero but look Eastern... however i just went with the Mandarin one coz Zhi Ro might mean something derogatory in Chinese or something.
