Clad In Black by ArtMagix Clad In Black by ArtMagix
Guy, I heard you like to protect Dark Dragon Blades, so we sent someone to take it from you.

I like Doku, he's the coolest, so he gets painted, bye.

Photoshop CS + SAI

Oh my gosh this is amazing! Doku is by far the best and coolest villain ever, and this is a fantastic rendition of him! I quite like the purple qhost stuff pouring out of his faceplate (very similar to how it did that in the game). I kinda want to play Ninja Gaiden again just to play against him.

He looks particulary here with that evil face you added. Amazing job, Doku was so badass and charismatic, Ninja Gaiden villains deserve more attention! (except the NG3 ones...)

Ninja Gaiden 2 villains are garbage as well, not one was memorable compared to the Xbox version.

Well I appreciated the Ninja Gaiden 2 villains for their design but unfortunately the story too linear to enhance them.

Doku was perhaps the toughest video game boss, ever. In fact, I never beat him in.... I borrowed my brother's Ninja Gaiden and just never quite could get it finished. I finished the later games in the series but Doku stands as a testament to how Japanese games are not for the weak!

I love the picture, BTW! Epic as usual.

Doku was a joke, you gotta know what weapon to use against him and how to beat him.

Shohndon Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Now I'm curious. How did you beat him?
Reply
:iconartmagix:
ArtMagix Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
EZ. Best weapons are either Flail, Lunar, Unlaboured Flawlessness. Just gotta know when to dodge, block, and when to hit.

Ghost Doku is even funnier. Just use lighting to kill the ghost fish, then use circle + Y(charge) with TrueDragonSword when he comes charging at you and you'll take off a third of his health.

Easier said then done. And I hate those ghost fish. Good advice though. Ninja Gaiden can be summed up as getting perfect timing.

Hey, I never thought I'd see you revisit any Ninja Gaiden art. The skull silhouette in his fire-face looks a lot more interesting than his samurai faceguard. I always liked how he looked without that thing and I think this would have looked really cool if it had been in the games.

Personally, though, I always thought Doku was a douche, but to each his own.
