This little picture is the result of playing too much Jet Set Radio, buying back Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, a childhood memory of mine. Jose Bendera was actually the created skater of a friend of mine in 5th grade. I fell in love with name immediately. Since it was my game, I took over his character design, and I've been making him in every skateboarding game for the past 12 years now. I've redesigned time and time again and I consider him one of my early brain children.
I took after the concept art of Jet Set Radio when drawing this, not cleaning up my blue lines and keeping the look nice and gritty. Enjoy!
