Entry for the fighting game character contest over at the 3D Total forum. We had to draw out character, their stage background and special move as well as character bio;

Years ago Noir travelled to the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii. He was to meet with a young lady called Sayre in hopes of them combining their alchemy and sorcery knowledge to create a spell, which would to make Kilauea spew gold next time it erupted! Years of research and experimentation went by and Noir and Sayre fell in love. On the day before their marriage they finally cracked it! They both climbed the volcano peak and poured in the potion. Sayre began to chant in order for the spell to work. Something’s happening! This is it, the volcano would erupt gold within the hour.
They climbed back down, but before they were out of harms way the volcano erupted early, and no gold was to be seen! The ash and rock spewed out and coved them both in an instant.
Noir opens his eyes to find himself back on the land. How did he get here? His love Sayre is nowhere in sight, but Noir knows in his heart she is still alive, somewhere...
Hundreds of years had past while Noir and Sayre were buried. It seems the side effect of the potion and spell had kept Noir alive in a cryogenic-like state, and something else. Noir found he had the ability to control rock and stone! The essence and life force within the rock which covered him had fused into his body and mind.
Noir now searches the globe for Sayre, eliminating anyone how tries to stop him with a little help from his new abilities.

Noir was also used as a male figure example in book, "The Art of Drawing Manga"!

I remember this character from that one book you wrote. I always thought he'd be some sort of character from a fighting video game like street fighter or something.

this is my favorite drawing so far. the shadeing is in the right spot and the colors are clear and simple. you can tell that he is a fight by the look on his face and the huge muscles. you can also tell by his eyes that he is imagining or day dreaming something. i really like the picture by the cya ben.

Hi Ben. I am a troubled young artist. I have been having trouble making up my own style or way of drawing manga. So i really need a perfessional artist's assisstants.

Nice. The muscles are freakishly large for my tastes, since I prefer boys built like the characters from Fruits Basket (by Natsuki Takaya), but they aren't too freaky for your particular style.
