Adam Edelwine by Oneiric-Studios Adam Edelwine by Oneiric-Studios
This is my second entry for the Scott Pilgrim contest. I did an illustration of my character, Adam Edelwine - the 8th Evil Ex (alias "The Ex that Never Was"). I went with normal drawing style in fleshing him out.

Adam is Ramona's long-standing friend through all her relationships who was always there for her up until she left for Montreal. After finding her again, with a new boyfriend, he can take his "close friend" status no longer, solidifying the 8th Evil Ex.

He knows more about Ramona than anyone, including Scott Pilgrim, but unlike Scott he's never been loved by her. The sword he wields is a broken "Power of Love" sword. It's broken form is due to Ramona's adamant refusal of his love back in New York (when things were going wrong with Gideon). So adamant in fact that she tried forcing it back to its source, accidentally snapping it in half and slicing his chest. The patches on his hoodie were sewn as a poor attempt at an apology by Ramona as she left for .

"Broken swords are still swords!"
That's what I'd imagine him saying.

I feel his design has too much 'Gideon-ness' Not an insult per say, but I think you should tweak his sideburns a bit. He kinda looks like a punkish Gideon.

Not that I'm saying it's bad, of course. I think you captured a decent fighting pose and I like his bio.

Oh gosh, sideburns? That's supposed to be long hair draping over the side of his face behind his glasses.

I do see the what you mean about a punkish Gideon, but his place in the count makes him superior... technically.

It looks like sideburns. Maybe if you screwed around with his hair/glasses design, I'd not complain.
