A creature that brings despair when it hits the table but nice and simple to alter.

An anime I watched lately, after a long time, is Shingeki no Kyojin or Attack on Titan in English. I have to say that not only has intriguing story and action but also some of the most terrifying villains in all mediums. Funny thing is that these villains don't even talk, they just eat people alive...asides that they have the creepiest faces you'll see in any anime.
 Anyway, I watched all the episodes so far, read the manga and here is an alter on my favorite Titan.

I really wanted to do a fan art of Mikasa Ackerman on a forest, just to use the mana for summoning the big guy. So here it is.

And the original sketch I made on paper.

With Death Note being one of my favorite anime, it's strange I haven't done much alters themed after it. The first is one I've done recently and the other one of my very first alters.

This alter was made for an altered art contest in back in March. The constest's challenge was to alter a card with manga or comic style but I ended up using both styles. The manga part is based on manga version of Chandra from the Japansese Chandra vs Jace box. In the comic part with Jace. I tried to have the 80's Marvel comics look. This is the link to the contest where the alter won the first place:
