Markvember 25: The BlackFist by suicidalassassin
Markvember 25: The BlackFist
Markvember entry 25!

Featuring the leader of the BlackGuard, Eli "BlackFist" Mercer! The first iconic African American super hero during the Civil Rights era, BlackFist played a major role in uplifting the morale of his people during that time.....before being "assassinated".  Taking a nap for nearly three decades, Mercer is awakened to find his people and the super hero community in general in a flux.  Intent on bringing morals back the image of a super hero, Mercer ironically bands together four convicts in hopes of showing them how to be REAL heroes for people to look to for hope.

However, he has not even come close to achieving that, as the BlackGuard are considered a threat and a laughing stock in the super hero community.

The hip hop culture, which he loves so much, can easily be seen in his somewhat graffiti inspired style of art. Go ahead, take a look at the gallery of the Suicidal's to die for.

Hey there! I was just wondering if you take requests for your art?
suicidalassassin Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I can't make any promises due to my schedule.

But, what did you have in mind?
retro-gamer Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well I absolutely love your art style, and if you don't have time or don't want to that's fine...but I'm a youtuber that plays Mario games and I was wondering if you could draw Mario, Luigi, peach, and toad doing kind of a "gangster" pose. Maybe some more in the future...but I understand with a busy schedule it's hard to do things. Just thought I would ask!

That actually sounds like fun to draw.  I'd love to take a crack at it, but I've got a lot on my table at the moment.  If you could private message me, that would be awesome.  That way, I could have time to come back to the idea and be reminded of it :)
