This steampunk portrait was a comission for ImagineFX magazine, and accompanies a full workshop (including brushes and video) on the creation of the illustration. So if you're curious about the process, check out the February 2013 issue of ImagineFX .
A private commission for a client... The client wanted a medieval/fantasy take on those stonewardens with a touch of ironman/sentinel look
so I hope I delivered just that :)
