This is another piece that's been sitting on my hard drive, waiting to be completed. It's the second of three 'Hawkworld' pieces that I started it a year ago when he was announced to appear on Smallville.
I had built my first version with Michael 3 and was never quite satisfied. This past month, I completely rebuild him with Michael 4. The bracers and boots are from Valiant, the belt is Ad Gladio, the axe is from As Shanim ("Alphaseed" now), and the helmet. mace, and chest emblem are custom by yours truely.
I created the backdrop in Vue8 xStream with native elements to the program, but wasn't happy with how the clouds were turning out. I ended up improving the clouds with sky photos from my own backyard (heavily color-adjusted, of course)
