Tau Firewarrior, Francois Leopold Cannels (2D)

Title: Tau Firewarrior
Name: Francois Leopold Cannels
Country: Canada
Software: Photoshop

once again, a commission for not even a penny.
my "boss" wanted me to draw something for his banner, and i thought i'd give him more than he bargained for. :)

i also took the time to come up with a way to make the skin wrinklier than my previous piece, the Ork, as well as change the design of the Tau Firewarrior armour, since i think it's so hideous.

the pose and the lighting are supposed to evoke the feeling of someone looking up to a cause like "the greater good" with pride and admiration. i dunno if i succeded, but i like how i gave the piece a slightly hazy mist about- something i might use for other works in the future.

Very nice skin texture on face. Also the stainless steel background looks very well.

The white highlight across the eyes could be a lot smaller. would bring out the eyes more instead of washing them out with fluorescent touches.

Very nice and especially his expression. Not an easy task when picturing non-human creatures.

Good job man! I love the reflections in the eyes, and I agree about the background. It looks great. Oh, and I like your take on the armor. Go Tau!
