Well it had been almost exactly 12 months since I painted "the Ranger" for Anchora Games last year. check it out: [link]
Since then my skills have increased significantly, and I thought it a great opportunity to go back on one of my old favourites. I strive incredibly hard to improve on my skills every day and am unrelenting in my pursuit of my dream: to become a full time illustrator/concept artist. To those who have followed me on my DA journey so far, thanks for your support and comments, its always fantastic getting a compliment when working hard, I hope you like what I put up in the future.... The best it still yet to come!!
The piece itself, I wanted to be as close to the original as I could plus all the new cool things. So I kept the colour pallet deliberately de-saturated and the pose pretty much exactly the same for a better comparison.
