Today i updated the Project galleries on ga-hq and uploaded your entry here [link] i think it looks great but it would be cool if you can give me and the visitors of that gallery some informations

like, what did you use to create the entry, how long did it take? , why did you choose Bilstein and what do you think about that character and your entry?

greets, gbk

Cool!
I used Photoshop CS 5 for my sketch then imported it to Manga Studio EX to ink. When I finished inking it, back to Photoshop I went for the colors, background, and finishing touches. When I was working on this piece, I was re-watching some Batman: The Animated Series episodes and was enamored by the simplistic style. I drew some parallels between the animation-ready art style and the 'ol simple 3D graphics of Star Gladiators, both were simple but conveyed the characters effectively.
I chose Bilstein as my subject because I'm naturally drawn to powerful characters. To me, his character was very powerful not just because he was the boss (but that helps too) but because of how he carried himself. His fighting stance looked imposing and his moves were devastating.

Looks great! I really like this idea, mostly because I like picking the artist's brains.

Definitely, it's a great addition!

write a bit like that to all your works, i bet others find it interesting too and will comment your description of the image as well, i saw that many of the professional artists do that too 2dforever as example [link] that guy is a great artist, but also writes always interesting stuff ..check out the comments and you see that many people directly comment or answer what he talks about or asks in his descriptions

infos about how a iamge was created or how long it took might interest mostly other artists, and who knows, maybe one or another time one of them hints like a tool he recommends or a different drawing technique..etc

Yeah, Its great. One of the few original fighting games created in 3D by Capcom. With Rival Schools and Power Stone its one of my favorites.

Ive got the Star Gladiator 1 for my PSX and the Star Gladiator 2 (Plasma Sword) on my DReamcast. Theyre slightly different, and the character design is brilliant. Id love to see new updated versions of these games with new graphics and the same anime style. ^^
