So I was lookin around my pictures for somethin to experiment with when I came across my color study pics of this guy. I took the red version and tried a few things and came up with this. I want to make this a poster.

weeee! Awesome!I love the lil dragons on his armor and everything! Totally awesome! I love it! How do that faded image "copy" or whatever of the picture in the background? Can it be done in Photo shop?

:-) Trevor Mathis replies: "Yes the faded image was done in photo shop. I took a copy of the original and blew it up 200%. Then when I pasted it to the background I set the layer to opacity of 50% or less and had another background, the black layer, behind it to make it more noticeable."

I didn't even notice the head in the backround.

13 Trevor Mathis replies: "Yeah it's a little hidden but I was going for that as the head is not a focal point."

Great detailing on the armor!

:-) Trevor Mathis replies: "Thanks. I have in the past two months begun to hate what I have posted when compared to what is going to be posted. But I guess this one still is comparable."

i have to say again that your clothes and armor designs are very nice. Realy inspiring. Keep up the great work man

:-) Trevor Mathis replies: "If it's one thing I know I can do it's design some interesting fantasy armor. I'm trying to get it to look more realistic by using better shading techniques and light usage."

This is good! only thing id say is that the font doesnt really suit the image but the drawing is terrific expecially the details! Well done!

:-) Trevor Mathis replies: "It was a bit experimental. Now-a-days I'd do much more with it. Maybe I'll make another poster pic like this and do a better job."

I really like the threatening colour scheme in this one...It really helps to create a sense of mood.

:-) Trevor Mathis replies: "Thanks I'm working on a new "poster" piece right now."

:-) Trevor Mathis replies: "Thanks I'm glad you liked it."
