Hi all!

This is a quite unfinished sketch… but I’m trying to honor the rules of this challenge.
Mainly, I have no clue what he should fight with :stuck_out_tongue: Any ideas? Food? DNA? I just leave it up to you.

I made it in Gimp 2.6 in little bit less than 55 minutes.
This time I tried to focus a bit more on the colors and less on the drawing. Hope you like it :slight_smile:

The Modern Mars (God of War)


45 minutes Photoshop. Getting back into things so i didn’t expect it to be my best…


Receptor, you mentioned you focused more on color, I think foundation is more important for just sketches. practice greyscale and apply color last, heres a tut on this.

Greyscale to color.

Mars | God of War

Was going to make him holding a spear, but thought the protruding arrows had more of a mythological and immortal feel to it.
