I only got into the “Kamen Rider” series fairly recently, but I’ve really taken a liking to it. The Showa-era Riders in particular are really fun, and I adore their designs. Even if some of them can get a little goofy looking. However, I think Riders 1 and 2 have really great costumes. I definitely want to do more Rider pics in the future, especially for Kuuga, which might be my favorite so far. As for this piece, I might have overdone it with the blood and grit, but I think it fits, especially after seeing some of the S.I.C. versions of the characters. This was also heavily inspired by (okay the blood was basically stolen from) a picture of Death from “Sandman” by Moebius.
