A decorated soldier adorned with commendation after commendation. His will to fight doesn't come from a place where adulation is the motivating factor behind his actions but from the idealistic belief that to not fight for those you cherish is a lost battle and that idealism should be commended. The sketch for this image can be found in LEATHER WINGS, one of the illustrated artbooks published through LAMIN ILLUSTRATION & DESIGN.

I'm going to be putting together a tutorial on the process for creating this image this month so I'll let you know when it's done so you can get a little insight into the process.

This deserves way many more views!! >:( I'm bored of all the mainstream crap on the front page all the time, this is the kind of stuff that should be up there, not chibis and cats and underwater photographs! Awesome pic!

Thanks a lot my friend! I'll always try to come up with, hopefully, interesting concepts to try and get people interested in the fact that I exist in the illustration world. It can be difficult at times but I promise I'll keep trying as long as fellow artists such as yourself keep watching.

Thanks again!

Thank you very much! I tried to make him look heavy and a little worn out from battle, I'm glad that feeling came across.
