The Collector

This is another piece of character art for a project that I’m currently working on. The setting is a large township in a fictional 1800s type era. The township is run by a council which is trying to maintain peace among many factions and guilds that threaten the prosperity of the city. This character “The Collector” portrays the head of one such faction. Using his primarily the Automaton bird from a bygone area, he collects the debts that others have accrued from the borrowing of his immense wealth. However if his bird returns empty, his immense size often does the trick in “encouraging” an on-time payment.

I used Blender for the initial sculpt as well as the lighting, and then Artrage and Krita to do a paintover, background, and effects. It’s been fun using different programs to get the look I’m going for, since I’m really not a master at any of them and it’s faster than me trying to achieve such a result in only one of them.

I plan on there being more images in this series, so keep an eye out.

As always, critiques welcome and appreciated!
