as u can see on the sig, i drew this way back in 2010. i dont get told very often not to post something, but when i do, i know its super top secret. so top secret, that to this day i have no idea what this was used for. i think national geographic or something. but after 2 yrs i thinks safe now
im actually happy with this one. i always say there's a sure fire way to tell if an artist is good at their craft...if that artist can draw a figure standing still not doing anything and make it look cool.....then he is a master at his craft. not many can do that. and the reasoning is, there are no special FX to gawk at or extra eye candy to distract ones eye...just pure drawing skill.
i drew this in 5-6 hrs cause thats all the time they gave me. and when that happens u have to rely completely on natural ability. it was a lil challenging cause i had to design him at the same time, and that slows one down A LOT! but its fun for me cause i do it all the time.
i love getting the chance to draw deep shadows, i dont get to do it very often, drawing all the cheese cake i am asked to produce day in and day out. i think shadows and blacks is one of the most valuable tools in an artist arsenal.
