Roller Jousting

I wanted to include a Fantasy/Sci fi IP to my portfolio, thought it'd be a good chance to execute an idea I had for sometime, I love creating fake sports and magazine covers so I did some foolin around to come up with this, where medieval knights joust in wicked rocket booster armor, and weapons of their choice, at the same time sponsored by all these big modern day brands we know. Just quick explorations for now, have a couple of other ideas I'd like to paint so hopefully these are the first of many!

Love this! It's exhilarating, fantastic. I imagine a movie with this character, and it's, as I said, exhilarating :)

Very interesting idea! It's great
Hmm, is the gun used for jousting or is she just standing with it for sponsoring. It would be a very odd and very short match of jousting with the sport constantly having to find new participants unless the armor is just that strong or the gun is not the type to shoot penetrating slugs but slugs or energy that cause knockback.

For all the impressive detail, what I find most impressive is still the grain on the breastplate.
It is all too often one sees highly accomplished artists painting "realistic" bare steel armour with an immaculate mirror sheen. No such thing here. You've shown amazingly well that steel made to stand up in combat is very grainy. Very rough. Steel, per definition, derives strength solely from impurity - and is all the more beautiful for it.

Well done, and thank you for sharing.
This is so cool !  I wonder what type of gun this is.It looks nice but I can not find the name of the gun.

Armour and Gun made by BMW. Sponsoring by Allianz. I work for neither, but I am sure they will be thrilled that the artist thought of them...

I like the whole "sci fi knight" part of this but not the "jousting as a sport" part.
