Nice detail! But I want to know, is that a mask the guy is wearing? Or is it all part of this story I'm hearing so much about?

To be honest, I'm not sure if it's a mask, or if it's his actual face, or a bit of both. I'm leaning toward a bit of both. If that makes sense at all. I don't think he's entirely human....

The lighting effect on the blue character is amazing! In fact, I love his(?) whole costume - there's something very ethereal and just a bit creepy about a) those blue/green colours you've used and b) the way you've used them together, it's quite captivating to look at! The armour's impressive too, and even though you said it's a character piece I also love the background :), so all in all I'd say it's a wonderful piece.

Is there a background story/setting to it? Just looking at it seems to convey a sense of some untold story, which is quite unusual for a character picture...

Thanks! Glad you like his costume. It was the main reason I did this pic. ^_^ And yes, he's meant to be creepy and otherworldly.

I rarely have full stories to accompany my pics. If there are any story bits, they're usually very loose and unformed, just a scene with no backstory. I'm glad you get a sense of story with this though.

He's a cold warrior, not entirely human, sent to protect her. She appreciates his help, but he scares her almost as much as the bad guys do. As for who they are, exactly, I have no idea. Feel free to make something up.
