monocle glare by len-yan monocle glare by len-yan
2010-11-02

since this work is going to be featured in our club's artbook i was asked to edit it. the changes are quite big (anatomy, perspective, almost completely redone face, readjusted contrast, touched up details...) so i decided to reupload it and spam your inboxes;; hope you don't mind;;;

----------

another armor design. i'm not very satisfied with this one, i think it might have to do with the fact i worked on it longer than usual. i seem to have learned a thing or two though so all is fine.

didn't pay too much attention to the sword, don't be too harsh on me. i do plan to work more on weapons in the future but for now i try to focus on armors.

i hope next time there'll be less of a failure TT^TT

on a side note, free cookies for those who know what i'm refering to in the title~ :cookie:

You're so silly. This not a fail. This is beautiful! Seriously. And if it needs tweaking, it needs tweaking. So what? Not everything's perfect the first time round.
I applaud your gorgeous work and the guy's monocle. ^_^ lol. I love it!

Heehee, old spice.

This is incredible. Easily my favourite yet of these designs. I love the way you've worked together the waistcoat and so on with this amazing armour in such a natural, credible way, when the two styles could easily have clashed.

I am just in awe.

I want a model of this for my desk! XD
