Sylar: First Rule of War by Phoenix-Cry Sylar: First Rule of War by Phoenix-Cry
If you enjoy please comment or fav or something, I never beg for such a thing, but I've put sooooo much work into this!!

I have been working on this painting for over a week. This is 28 solid hours of painting. I'm fairly certain that I could keep doing touch ups until I died of dehydration, but I think I'm going to call it quits.

I barely even have energy left to even think about this, let alone give witty comments. This is the MOST work I've ever put into any painting.

Sylar and all his barely contained rage!

There is a short story that goes along with this: [link]

Detail of the face and chest: [link]

This one scares me a bit, in a good way. Looks like someone is trying to breed Sylar who's just getting ready to break out for a killing spree. *Fans brow* Your hard work has paid off, m'lady, and this proves it.

You've gotten his hair right and his eyes warn, "Ready or not, here I come!" *Runs and hides*

I loved doing this one. There is a story that goes along with it and they guy who captured him is about to be in a WORLD of hurt. One does not just try and keep Sylar as a pet. :giggle: The hair was sooooo much fun!

"One does not just try and keep Sylar as a pet."

Awww, but I want to give him a nice warm shower, dry him off with fluffy towels, and feed him cookies!

OMIGAWD.

You finished this and I forgot to look back and check!!!! ^^;

It looks AMAZING, though! Possibly the best Sylar pic I've seen on dA, no kidding. It looks so smooth, and I love the little energy burst in his outstretched hand. Not to mention he looks really, really good. ;P

Thanks! :hug: I'm stupid proud of this painting! I spent a good four hours on that damn flame alone!

Sylar doing what Sylar does best: look sexy and evil.

I'm so thrilled you like!

Omigawd, believe me when I say I KNOW THE FEELING. One time I spent about an hour on a hand. A hand. ONE. STUPID. HAND.

And then I changed the pose of it anyways. xD

YES. He always looks sexy though. :heart: Evil.. most of the time. ;3
