Ugh....how do you say over 80 hours of work and STILL not done????

Anywho, stuck this up since I'm off to "band camp" (actually, orchestral summer program) for a month and a half, and no art. T_T

Not finished, and there are SOOO many little things I need to fix/redo/start on with this piece (hair, proportions, background, wall, metals, etc), but it's coming along 'well', so I'm still smiling after slaving away. :) <--smile!

Extra info- this IS a more major character in my novel series, and though he's still in the beginning of his evolution phase (in terms of being developed as a character), he's fun to draw. ^_^ Hopefully I'll get to post up the original sketch of this picture, and a collage of detail shots.

Enjoy!

Wow! This is amazing. Do you do commissions, because this is the style I always see my characters in. :eager:

80 hours, huh? Talk about commitment to art. No wonder you're so good. =) I love the background, it's very unique and futuristic. I also love his armor. It's old school yet futuristic at the same time. :love:

Okay, I'll stop being a fangirl now. ^^;

It's a futuristic building of sorts...though I'm planning (when I become a bit less lazy, haha)on making a different background soon.

:nod: Imo looking at his dress you should make it a bit more in the fantasy direction. A castle, perhaps Arabian inspired. Becacuse I got a slight 1001 Nights feeling when I saw this first, and if you want to strenghten it an arabic styled structure would work. + there's not that many works of that kind out there for some reason, because I think it's a great style. (Look who's talking, I haven't done one myself...)

Maybe- that's a really interesting idea, and I hadn't thought about it before. When I redo it, I'll definitely take that into account. Thanks! =)
