Claymore - WIP1 by Robaato Claymore - WIP1 by Robaato
I haven’t done a full-composition fanart piece in a while. Figured I’d hack away at this bit by bit until completion between work breaks. I'll update this as I go along finishing each stage~!

I only watched the series recently, and I instantly became a fan, practically overnight. The anime's ending was weaksauce so I'm all up in the manga now. I rarely do that; only when something really resonates with me from a storytelling standpoint. And the art by Yagi is so much love. 

TOOLS: SketchbookPro6/Cintiq24HD
MUSIC: Claymore - Anime OST

Great that you got to the manga right away. The anime ending isn't bad for what it's worth, just bringing some closure, but the manga's arc ends up waaay more awesome and then goes on to be even better. You're going to really dig it.

truly a great work of art man awesome awesome stuff I feel the same with berserk somehow this show and story almost seemed the same for two characters hell bent on vengeance and some sense of justice. love them both, they bring carnage and bloodshed;) :thumbsup:

Claymore is really great and the manga is so much better than the anime (mainly because the anime end was just bad and non sense).
Otherwise, your drawing starts great but the position of Claire's symbol is a bit awkward.

I didn't really follow the series at first, since this one's first volume was just really bland. I just went ahead and caught a recent chapter and went on from there, and it's been pretty good. But I have no qualms of just brushing in backstory to fill out the parts I've missed.

I can't believe you got just about every single character in there.  This is going to be so awesome when it's finished, Rob!  Can't wait to see you finish.

I always read the manga first. I love it! I'm about halfway through. My other faves are 20th Century Boy and Monster (both by Naoki Urasawa). Keep up the awesome work! ^_^

IKR? It ends so abruptly and with literally no closure at all.

They need to reboot it. It's a fantastic series.
