The Grammaton Cleric - comic - by wallace The Grammaton Cleric - comic - by wallace
Hi all!:)

I finally had some free time to do some of my own stuff,
and this gave me the opportunity to do what I really like: line-art/ comic style.
After all the painting this is a welcome return for me:)

This is a drawing based on the movie 'Equilibrium' (2002, courtesy: Miramax Films)
A nice little gem that got overlooked.
it features the awesome Gun-Fu (or Gun-Kata), a combination of martial arts and using fire-arms.

For those who haven't seen it you can find information about this movie here: [link]

Inked with 'ordinary' multiliners and coloured with PS

Please view fullsize thanks!:D

Those weird looking T shaped gun flares are an essential detail throughout the movie.

Progressions steps can be found here:

I love this movie!!!!!!!!! Equilibrium was sooo good. It reminded me of the Matrix for some reason, but I liked Equilibrium so much more.

This style is completely different from your normal art, I like it! The guns are awesome.

I dig that movie, but like you said, almost no one seems to know it, for no obvious reasons. So thanks for spreading the word!

that's an awesomely complicated pose to pull off but you have managed it! I'm afraid I haven't seen the movie so I can't comment on that aspect, but I like that you're trying out different things!

Good work, I like the cross hatched shading -- adds some texture and richness to the piece.
I would say that his choice of position for the right arm is quite odd...looks as though he's being unnecessarily fancy. I can't see how that'd lead to a good shot ;)

Thanks Mike for your comment:D

About the fancy swancy move, I dunno if you've seen the movie but these grammaton clerics incorporate mathematics into their gun fighting.
I know sounds a bit silly, but looks cool.
By throwing his arm over his head he can make himself more 'flat' towards the opposing figthers. less mass to shoot at and thus getting shot has less er chance...or somthing like that:P

Well it's a theory:D

Thanks!

Makes sense. I imagine one would need to balance the need to be harder to hit with the need to be able to make a decent outgoing shot too.
