Supposed to be entry for
's DJ Goh Goh Art Contest. I wasn't able to submit it though because when I was still finishing this a day job popped out and I got accepted, it grabbed most of my past 3 months hence also the time to finish this.[ WALL OF ART EXPLANATION in 3...2..1. ]Yeah, what you're seeing there is a male gender bender of DJ Goh Goh
When I caught wind of the contest I just knew that most of the contestants will play along the sexiness of the given subject, so what I did was take a different path and went on to play rather on the background of the character.
I took design cues from the original female DJ Goh Goh. Since she is a ninja i thought of GOH GOH being a clan name more than a name of just one person hence the additional materials for the idea. As cheesy as it sounds I was having this idea that the title "DJ" is like some sort of a high rank that you need to attain in the clan and only one can have it. So I was thinking that this design can either be used as the male equivalent of DJ Goh Goh or a ninja from the Goh Goh clan that is still on the path of attaining the rank of "DJ".
I felt awkward to the realization to use pink but then I remembered that saying I heard some time ago from some clothing company ad: "Real men wear Pink..." so I still incorporated the pink although I toned down the lightness so that it won't look too girly.
Anyway I did enjoy doing this, although it got too long winded coz work affected my available time.
Nevertheless I learned some stuff here and there (e.g. need to practice weapons/subjects holding weapons!
) and experimented on some stuff (thin lines!). It's always nice to discover things to learn when it comes to art. Art, idea © Original idea, DJ Goh Goh ©
