Its been a while but I am going to attempt to enter something for the ConceptArt.Org's Character of the Week (Chow) weekly contest. The topic is of an Essedari - a war chariot fighter from gladiatorial roman times. I gathered a lot of reference for the armor and horses, there were times when I jumped in and wanted to just draw and paint straight away with little direction but in the end I had to take a step back and start again with some proper research. Anyway... I hope I can complete it in time for the competition's deadline. Annnnndddddd.... heres an anatomy study from a sculpture we have in the office.
