The Storm Breaker is a crow-faced creature that resides at high altitudes, mediating winds and clouds with an oar it keeps on its back. It can't fly, but is light enough to use the winds to glide from place to place. It mainly concerns itself with limiting storms to a certain size by breaking up the currents with its oar.
If any of you have ever watched Sunabouzu
before, you'll probably think this dude looks familiar. That's because I drew this guy right after thinking to myself how cool Amagumo was. Looking back on this, I may have borrowed a bit too much from him...
Oh well. It looked cool anyhow, and in the end isn't that all that matters? *is sued* Originally his name was going to be "Stormy Breaker," but as neat as the combo sounds, who goes around with the alias "Stormy"? It sounded a bit too...cute.
This marks the first time I've used Flash's bitmap filters and blend options for lighting effects. I have to say, it's pretty pimpin'.
Oh yeah, and that's not a hood - it's a triangular hat. 'Cause triangle hats are the best kind of hats.
