Tides of War by Spectrum-VII Tides of War by Spectrum-VII
My half of an art trade with *Starwolf-ftw, his persona character in "classic battlefield armor". I had already finished the sketch when I realized he may have misinterpreted my words to mean a historically accurate suit, but I was thinking more along the lines of classic fantasy stylization. Sorry dude, hope you're not disappointed or anything :XD:

I spent quite a bit of time on this one to fulfill my personal motto: "make every new thing you draw the best thing you've ever drawn", so I challenged myself to work in greater depth than usual. I've more or less conquered my art block and drawn up redesigns for a couple OCs as well.

So there you have it, folks. Character (c) *Starwolf-ftw, art by yours truly ;)

I like it how you make the composition simple, yet add so much detail to the character. I had a bit of problem getting poses like right, sometimes.

This is so amazing! There is nothing I can find wrong with this picture at all. The lighting, the shine, the radiance that's just shimmering out from the chosen design, pose, and background. This is beyond what I was hoping to see and it just made my really crappy week have such a great ending. It's inspiring really. You did such an awesome job, especially that chainmail, love that addition. I hope my part of our trade is just as good as yours. You really outdid yourself. Thank you so much and I hope to have your portion out as soon as I get finished settling into my new apartment. :D

Glad you like it! Exceeding expectations is exactly what I set out to do, and drawing your characters has given me the opportunity to venture into unfamiliar territory and discover new ways to expand my personal style. This piece here was no exception; next time I sketch up a pose for Scotty he'll have a little slice of "Tides of War" in him ;)

Take your time amigo, I totally understand if you're busy with important stuff. I'd love to see what you can pull off, when you get the time and energy to do so. Good luck with the apartment transition :)
