Commissioned for :iconlinka06: of her original character Kassian Iskander.

This character was described to me as "the captain of a huge spaceship called Obsidian. He is cold doesn't speak a lot and seems to be heartless but he is not. He lost one of his eyes at the beginning of the war and he has an eyepatch. He is of course a great fighter and carries a very special saber and a gun."

This commission gave me a chance to do more of a sci-fi looking drawing. I haven't had a lot of experience doing that, but I enjoyed the challenge and over all I'm quite happy at how it turned out.

No Critique desired
Painted completely in Photoshop.
A few references used.

I love how you seamlessly combined 16th century with sci-fi tech. Awesome! Though what's with the weightless belt?

very nice, I really like the costume design. Nice work while painting it too, it's dark, but not too dark that you miss out on all the detail and layers on the clothing.

He has a Date Masamune (Sengoku BASARA) meets sci-fi feel. Cool looking character, and you did an amazing job rendering him.
