This illustration is another one of my personal favorites. It's an illustration of a futuristic, cyborg, elite warlord who has an air of elegance about him and combines styles from th new and the old. He is partly inspired by Metal Gear Solid art as you would probably guess if you were a Metal Gear Solid fan, and particularly by one of Yoji Shinkawa's depictions of Raiden, especially for the pose and the sword - rifle combination.
(You may also notice a Palestinian flag colored in the drape, which is something personal I added as a Palestinian)
This model landed me a few features such as a CG Arena Excellence Award, a Making Of Warlord tutorial, and a zbrushcentral turntable gallery entry.
