tribal warrior by len-yan tribal warrior by len-yan
design of a warrior, possibly half-orcish?
inspirations include native american and african tribes, lineage2 orcs and a little bit of voodoo.

this work along with the 'black general' will go among the second series of pictures for my diploma project (i got stuck with the previous concept so i got an okay to do two series). both of those works will also appear in SPECTRUM 2012 artbook (korea only).

from the same series:

I love the design. Even if he is not massive, he seems powerful. I like how you draw his muscle.

I always have trouble when it comes to inspiration when drawing guys XD I don't know why but it seems I'm lacking inspiration lately... guess I just need to open my eyes a bit. ^.^

All your characters for diploma project are INCREDIBLY COOL!!
No art from PW can compare with this. I just love this theme with such world and such characters and everything.
I love them so much. I hope you live a long and happy life.

You know, looking at this guy again, I'm suddenly picturing a slight variant of his jawbone-spear thingy as a catch trap; you jam it over your victim/captive's arm, head, neck, whatever, and the fangs are all pointing back toward the shaft, so it goes on easily but they shred themselves if they try to get out.

Maybe I need more chocolate. ;)

I thought it was a woman at first and was proud that someone would actually paint a cool woman, and not just a sexy one. So I was a little disappointed that it was a man and there was a link to the sexy woman.. :( But you've got some skills anyway and I really love the design of the character.
