'Cause, y'know, eventually those depressed emo kids -snap- and becoming angry goth kids that.. break stuff. Something like that. If you didn't figure it, this is Diallo! Yes, after much trying times, he decided he had to have a makeover. This version of Diallo is going by the alias of Adonis, and thus.. they are easier to tell apart. <3

Thanks muchly to :iconthewhitefalcon: for help with tattoos and piercings, of which she is much knowledgeable (i'm like.. an old fogey about it). The perspective here is very.. super-wonky.. but... it's the mood! the mood is what matters, yes :D;;;

And I was supposed to draw a dragon. *shakefist!*

Also, this mister is all mine <3

Awesome! The tattoo is nicely done and I love the smoke affect. Very cool. His eyes are also quite alluring, if you will. X33

Wonderful job~

The mood here really is dark and ... well moody. The peircings really look good. I like how the smoke from the lighted cigarette and the smoke he's blowing out is mixed together. His hair looks really good. All shiney and pulled back. I love how that bright purple eye looks against the blue and darker lilac of the room. Though with it being that bright it gives it a less "dark" feeling and makes his more interesting. as always i love your color schemes. so much blue and purple is :heart: I can't say i'm fond of the name change. I like Diallo. Adonis sounds like some stuck up blonde football player. but that's just me...

Hey, long time no see! Thanks so much. I'm always glad for your comments. I'm glad you like the mood.. yet another of those things that just struck me, and I was unable to say no to. Hahaha, but yeah, worry not- I like Diallo better as well. It's more like... an alias for him. And it better suits his new persona, because, well... rather than being the cute, sad, lovesick puppy Diallo normally is... Adonis is a bit more like some stuck up football player... thinking he's all.. badass and such.

DELDELDEL TAT; I ♥♥♥ YOU~!!!
I love this one, ahh~! It's so simple BUT IT HAS SUCH A MOOD TO IT! I love the dark monochromatic colour scheme, and I love how even though your backgrounds are fairly simple they totally create a setting! It's amazing~ *0* You rock Del ahhh. ;3; And that smoke is so pretty and it, well, ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE SMOKE. How the hell did you do that?! SO AWESOME. *A* And of course this new Diallo look is the SEX. Not that I didn't love the old Diallo either. *^* Uwahhhh~ <3<3<3 ROCKSTAR. ♥

Love the piercing color of his eyes, and that tatoo is drawn very smoothly. And I just love the effect of the lighting in the room.

Wow... I really like the colors here, the blues/purples and yellows on the skin are really nice, and the red glow on it... way cool. :D I can never seem to do that right. Also, you did a good job making the tattoos conform to the body! I hate to use myself as an example yet again... but I never get that! xD always looks like a little floating symbol on my stuff. So good work there. =D Also, your character is very cool looking, his piercings look rad.

Thank you verrah much :x Yes.. I just kinda.. threw everything to the wind and hoped it stuck. I drew the tattoos on quickly, just trying to get the designs right (Falcon's tattoo designs are soo hot *_* i didn't wanna mess them up!) and then just hoped they looked conform-y enough :x Thanks for your comment!

Waaaiiii! *flails about* I just had to come on and check this morning to see if you'd managed to finish it in the night, without me distracting you. XD

I would totally bow down to him and be his slave. *giggles* I can't wait to meet him in RP.
