I know, I know. I've been doing a lot of my own stuff lately (sry to ppl who want fanart). But to be honest, I probably won't get to do much of that for a while. I have to submit a portfolio for AP Studio art and the teacher flips if he sees us doing fanart (especially manga-style). And so I'll be doing a lot more of my own characters, things, etc until my stupid portfolio's done.
This looks a lot better in real life I SWEAR. Some of it got cut off, too; my scanner's too small.
The guy is Lord Uo of the country of Sao (not a real place 0_o). He's a new ruler and still young, so he doesn't want to be bothered with running a country. He really just wants to be with his lover, Cheia Giza (right), the daughter of the leader of the Gizanga-ora: the most notorious criminal gang in Sao. The gang operates like the mafia, dealing in black market sales, etc. Recently, though, Cheia's father has been taking advantage of the romance, knowing that Uo won't try to stop him, at the expense of the citizens. Many of the bureaucrats and advisors know it's wrong, but are too afraid to step in and risk upsetting the Giza. ...It's pretty screwed up.
