For Christmas I wanted to do images for my brother and his fiance. While she never told me what she’d like, my brother said he wanted to be portrayed as some sort of business warrior (he’s been given promotions on a regular basis lately).
So anyway, as much as I’m not crazy about the idea, it is his request. This was a blank figure sketch to just work on pose (yes, the wrist is bent too far back)
This is the first test of outfit, but it looks a bit too rough on the details:
I redid the above, without the face, because that is not the focus of the sketch, to add more detail to the tears. I think it looks cool, but there’s more to be done on the shield and the sword:
I’ve started doodling on sword designs, but I really should go look on Google or museum websites at some intricate designs. But I’ll add 'em on the next post.
PS, this will be my second human figure, but I believe this one will work out a lot better.
