WEWY Hero: Kei by kowan WEWY Hero: Kei by kowan
1st entry for The World Ends with You Square-enix + DA Contest

Hero name: Kei
Age: 18

A silent but boastful and ignorant techie who chooses to fight alone rather than with a pair. It annoys him to know that he must form a pact with another person just so he can annihilate his enemies. He sometimes let others do the job of destroying his enemies while he listens to his music. He listens to music frequently ridding himself of the noise that annoys him so.

His past lies in mystery.


Inked on paper
Colored in photoshop


Thanks to Aya for helping me clean the lineart and for some additional design tips.

*UPDATE*
Aww, it didn't make it. But WOW!The winner was really goood! The best choice, it's complete with everything, and not only did he design a character but his own card game attack thingy too! It totally deserves the WIN. The finalists were awesome too except for one, i'm not gonna say it though. :rofl:

Anyway congratulations to the winners!:D

Hello! Sorry for the late reply. If the position is still available then I would love to participate! 
This is freelance work, yes? I would love to know more as to what you project is about. I mean is it an animated series or some sort? Also i'm more of a character focused artist so that's what I am best at. For the 3D skills, unfortunately I'm not that great in that area. 

Do you have any specific rates for how much you'll pay for the project?

Thanks so much!

You did a great job, as did so many others. It's no wonder I didn't win when I entered the contest back on my other account. You hit the style right on the head!

Your character is nice too. I was wondering was that moving animation in your icon was Kei.
