Zer0 - Borderlands 2 by PhaseChan Zer0 - Borderlands 2 by PhaseChan
"Assassins never die."


Woaaah I'm in love with Borderlands 2 at the moment. I must have spent over 70 hours playing so far. Zer0 is, of course, the coolest and hottest character ever and I love playing as him. :3

This is for the competition held over at

This is probably my favourite piece this year. Props to whoever can tell what the Kanji symbol stands for. :P

Also, here is my take on Lilith~

Wow, this is really good. The shading is fantastic as well as the line work. I also like how the background isn't empty. Really, the only thing I notice that I can really criticize is that his armor isn't exactly like it is in the game, if you're going for "Zero's Sneaking Suit," which is what I assume you were going for. The plating is a bit of a darker shade and there is a bit more of it. I can hardly give you crap for that though, I've tried drawing the MJOLNIR from Halo, and I completely butchered it ^^; That's really the only thing I can think of to criticize. All in all, it's an amazing piece that you should be proud of!

I love this it's one of my favorite Zer0 quotes since my play style involves a lot of second winds and Murder my advice for bloodshed tree Zer0s is get the Law or better yet the rapier, don't underrestimate the health regain of resurgence and invest in another tree for when melee isn't an option (I recommend Sniper so you can whittle down enemys for killing blow)
