Full view please.

This is an original character I have sneaking around in my head. He has a story that wants to be written someday, when I finally have time. So far he doesn't have a name, only a somewhat shady past. No stealing him. He's mine. :D

I'm actually really pleased with this image. I spent far more time on details than I normally do and I think it benefits from it.

Pose referenced partially from this image: www.deviantart.com/deviation/5… by the lovely :iconlinzstock:

If you haven't, check out her gallery. It's full of wonderful action and still shots of both males and females, as well as a zoo of animals and some great building and nature shots. I also glanced through some of her ship photos to figure out what a ship deck *might* look like from that angle.

I suspect, in real life, there'd be far more rope.

I don't want to steal him, but I was wondering, may I use him as inspiration for a possible scene for the book I am writing? He's amazing!!

Beautifully done. Facial expression is a bit awkward for me, but fantastic coloring and lighting.
