JJBA: Dio Brando by cogdis JJBA: Dio Brando by cogdis
"That man is so strong . . .
profound . . .
bold . . .
beautiful . . . "

" . . . Even the evil need a savior of evil ones."


DETAIL IMAGE: [link]

Recently I watched JoJo's Bizarre Adventure . . . The imagery of Dio Brando from the back was so haunting from the very start! By the time N'doul gave his speech about him, I knew I wanted to do an interpretation of it- Try to capture the godly, dark, romanticized viewpoint that a "fanatic" follower experiences.

I've only just started reading the manga, but I skipped ahead to find the image that those scenes seem to be based on: [link] (Hirohiko Araki's beautiful work!)

So I used the composition of that to make this piece. The artwork there is quite stylized, mixed with my own . . . Strange things happened. Painting this was a very delicious experience. I want to try Jotaro too eventually. :)

"His hair was as smooth as silk... His hair was as gold as gold... his trapezius muscles tore through his shirt-"

"Okay, getting a little uncomfortable."

"Boy, shut yo' ass up! Dio Brando's a sexy man!"

What kind of arrogant asshole poses while walking up stairs when he doesn't even know that somebody is watching him. 
Oh ya, it's Dio, right.


Great Job on this piece.

Hiya, I was wondering if you'd ever consider making dA prints available of this? I've been extremely captivated by this piece for years and I'd love to see it on my wall. Of all the artwork I've come across for some reason this one stands out and above all of them. Brilliant work.
