Huge image is huge.

A very quick one I had to draw two times because my computer dies a lot when I use that brush and I didn't save :' /
Can't trust technology.

Said brush is the ' palette knife ' one from ZhuZhu's awesome brush-set right here: [link]
(I tweaked it a little, though, for my needs )

I wanted some (other!) Mantis in my gallery that I could dedicate to :iconarok318: :heart:

Psycho mantis, could tell the moment I saw the picture, really good.

Pretty good, rather impressive game I might add.

would you mind if I used this as a sort of base, like use the pose and use the style of the coat because I think it would be good for the Scarecrow from Batman Ill tweak and change bits of it, to suit the character, if you want me to put credit to you I will ( I'll most likely mention this because I like it so much :) )

I love the style you have drawn Mantis in, it suits him well, especially with the colours being monochromatic.
