Abdul's Facial Markings

Postby Tragic Kingdom » Thu Sep 10, 2009 1:15 am

So I figured this would be the most logical spot to ask about it and since I have no idea if it's been stated in canon or not. What are Abdul's "Sqiwgly" facials markings? Something Religious, Traditional, Scars or BECAUSE ARAKI?

Thank god someone brought this up. I doubt it has a super deep meaning, I always felt they were cool scars...Maybe from...Hmm...Cork screw gone wrong? Mmeh idk

Facial scarification is fairly common in some parts of Sudan, a neighboring country of Egypt. Maybe Abdul is of sudanese descent.

I just love how deep we're going into this :3 and that's a neat observation.

Also because Araki really likes fucking with people's faces.

Especially around the eyes.

LOL Yes. XD Yet he thats kind of his beauty mark.

Actually, I do think it's a mixture of Araki and probably something Araki researched. Of course because we know next to nothing about Abdul expect where he's from, his occupation, and that he's friends with Joseph.

So it's probably something traditional that he looked up and added to the character design.

Huh, I didn't notice that before.

Speaking of J. Geil, how'd he pull this off?

My good sir, we have a thread for this:
WTF Moments in Jojo!

Though if you look through it, I think it did come up. :)

Thanks for the heads-up. Looks like someone posted about this since then.

Anyway, I noticed that the Judgment Stand has similar markings under its eyes... probably a bit of misdirection to make the reader think it belongs to Avdol's "father."

That's a nice find. I guess Abdul's markings were just used to make him more mysterious.

So while we're at it... does somebody know what Okuyasu had in his face? War paint? Kinda school guardian gang signs stuff? Scars? Araki-adds-more-detail lines?
