This piece was also done for a US publisher of exclusive books… for a new edition of Gene Wolfes “book of the new sun”.
It shows a sequence in the middle of the first book where Severian, the hero fights a “unknown” soldier with a strange deadly flower…
Unfortunately this piece was cut from the project and the whole work was done for nuts ;)
I personal like this piece a lot because it is my first serious Character work, and i wanted to show it to you.
(previously featured in my portfolio as wip work)
Done with Max (default bone setup), ZB, and Photoshop (Background and postwork)
