Drill Towards Tomorrow by Hardedge-Maelstrom Drill Towards Tomorrow by Hardedge-Maelstrom
"Your drill is a drill that will pierce the heavens!"

Yet another watercolour painting! This time of Gurren Lagann in its most iconic pose from the anime, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann! Freakin' brilliant series, probably the best I've seen in a long time :) Had a lot of fun doing this one :P

I originally wanted the spiral flame to spiral up further, but my sheet of paper was too small xD Should've used a bigger sheet ^^;

The drill that will pierce the Heavens, the Earth, and through to tomorrow. There's no time to mess around in the past --

-- The future's not very good at waiting patiently.

Awesome work. Simple badassery.

The flaming spiral of manliness really makes this piece pop. Great stuff!

I personally enjoy how the spiral is cut off x: it leaves some to the imagination and really helps fill the composition of the picture

but yes, the best pose <3 and there's so much energy in this too..watercolor always adds a certain fluidity to images

Impressive watercolor skills. I'm playing around with watercolors right now (for art class) and I think it's one of the best media, in terms of paint. Of course, pens and markers are always the easiest to use, but, your painting looks really good.

I love watercolours and acrylic, although I don't use the latter that often anymore, not enough time to devote D: I find markers harder to use for some reason xD haha.

Anyway, thank you! :D

THE MAGMA OF OUR HEARTS BURNS WITH A MIGHTY FLAME~
BROTHERLY COMBINING...GURREN LAGANN!!
WHO THE HELL DO YOU--ALL OF YOU--THINK WE ARE?!?!

Sorry, I'm done. xD This is BEAUTIFUL, man! The Spiral flame is fantastic. I love the expression on Gurren, too. x3

Now, if you'll pardon me, I'm going to run like hell before I'm hit by a giga drill breaker.

O_O... SNAP! When I saw the thumbnail I was thinking, "Aw, some tablet action here, *click*" but no! That's pretty damn impressive man! I love how you've done the background and spiral flame so that there's a texture to them and not just a solid colour like I've always thought water colour was limited too; the light and darkness to them. Obviously I haven't seen enough water cooler xD.

Gettin' me all psyched to see the cottage one, nicely done xD.
