This is an old picture I started more than a year ago. It's one of those things I'd poke away at from time to time, and I've finally decided it's finished.... I think.
Really cool ! the shield is great
Awesome! Makes me really want to tackle painting metal. That brushed metal effect on the shield is especially sexy.
Thanks, Var. The shield was a real struggle to design and I'm still not entirely happy with it. But oddly enough the brushed metal effect was a snap. It's all about rocking the brush mode, particularly Overlay, with a well-textured brush.
Also love the subtle details in the etching.
He's really cool, your characters have real personality!
Love the pose, and awesome shield! So cool!
Thanks! I'm glad the shield attracts some attention. It's the magical Shield of Shields, which can contract to the size of a buckler or expand to the size of a pavis.
