Great image!, really like the textures , lighting and the steamlined/androgynous feel to it, the bird mask adds to that (have you seen the masks doctors sometimes wore in renaissance times?) I like your other works,if this is a change for you ,it's definitely a good one
Magnificent! I love the reflective qualities on the armor and the decorative "sigil" trim on the cape. The helmet is particularly striking, making me wonder how much it follows the contours of whatever sort of head is hidden underneath. I even like the dusky color of the background; it seems to nicely fit the mood of the piece overall, but just light enough that I can make out the silhouette of the non-armored parts of the form.
Wow wow wow! This was so different from your usual style, that I had to do a few double takes! Absolutely wonderful rendering on the armor and feathers. i love the lighting and rim lights on his armor. @_@ Can't wait to see more!
Thanks Laura!! I'm glad we've been friends long enough for stuff like that to be apparent, haha! I tried to go back to some of the detailed work I used to do in junior high school (like the embroidery on his cape), plus trying to bring my art to the level I want to be at. And stuff! Thanks again!
