My entry for *nJoo's 2D Rock-Off #5. Theme is 3000 AD Gangster Warlord.

Ugh, I wish I had more time for this. It's such a cool theme! But I got called in for jury duty last week, and I'm sitting in on the trial this week. Which threw off all my plans. Bah!

I spent just under 3 hours on this. Wish I could spend some more time on it, but I really have to get my other work done before tomorrow. :(

The usual, Photoshop start to finish. No refs on this one.

Edit: Forgot to mention that in this 3K AD world, everyone's gone subterranean. ^_^

I LOVE the brush-strokes, texture, lighting, and composition!

WOW.

Ewwww...I hope the jury duty wasn't too painful.

As always, very nice textures and composition. It also lends itself to a number of ideas as to what the story is behind it. <3

very nice, the leader (I assume anyway) in the background looks especially good... good luck in the contest.

Thanks. :) I didn't place, but I didn't expect to. Not with a 3 hour sketch. But it was such a fun theme, I couldn't resist entering anyway. Have you seen this round's? "Carniverous Bunnies." :D I don't know how he comes up with his themes, but they're a riot.
Hubby-N-Dad's avatar
his themes are great, and you have a very good attitude... good luck if you enter.

!!! I got called for jury duty too! My parents were surprised since I'm a student and I shouldn't get those. o: My sister's 25 and she hasn't even been called for jury yet -_-

Ugh, this is the 4th time I've been called, and the 1st time I've actually had to serve on one. The first time I got called, I had just turned 18 and was out-of-state for college. :p

Meanwhile, my mom's been a U.S. citizen for 35 years, and she has never been called at all even though she's a registered voter and is registered with the DMV. Go figure.
