City Knight by NakadaiShimada City Knight by NakadaiShimada
The body of this was made by following an armour tutorial in this months (December) issue of IFX.. Though I created and applied the gilding differently (using free stock stencils). I also extended the image to incorporate the whole character and beyond, giving him this setting against what I imagine to be a wall within a celebrating city, hence the petal confetti.
Loved painting this, I learned a lot following the tutorial, as well as through adapting it for my own means. Also a lot of fun developing the character up and rounding him out a little more.

I think this was about 6(?) hours on and off over a few days. All done in PSCS5 with a Wacom Tablet.

As always comments etc. are much appreciated. Thanks for checking it out.
Please let me know what you think.

Ed.

He kind of looks like Liam Neeson, in a good way! He really came out great, I like his melancholy expression. Really fits the mood.
