Dark Jedi by Inkthinker Dark Jedi by Inkthinker
For the MESS Studio competition over at HOON's homesite: [link]

Check out the pencils over here: [link]

And if you want to take a whack at coloring these yourself, a decently-sized version is available here: [link]

I'm not a great colorist, I think that goes without saying. But then again, this is about 2 hours of coloring... so I can't swear that I put in everything I could. It's really more of a color comp, but that's all I managed to find time for.

This guy has no hands or feet, but is wrapped into a bionic limb system. His legs are based on these real-world spring-boots I've seen footage and still of. You can really bounce around on those things, and so I imaging this guy leaps and somersaults and cartwheels around while he fights.
:D

-EDIT-

Well, there's a twist... I actually won the competition. Color me shocked, 'cause I really didn't expect that.

-EDIT II-

Found a site for the actual stilts that his legs are based on: [link]

In addition, I notice that a lot of stiltwalking performers at theme parks wear these things now, as well. I suspect they must be more comfortable than the old construction stilts.

They're not that far removed from the "Cheetah Flex-foot", which is an artificial spring-like leg for below the knee. Turns out that people with cheetahs attached really can outperform natural humans, though they still need to be highly athletic to do so.

This is awsome. He should have his own story. I wouldn't want to fight him.
