An excerpt from the novel illustrations I've been working on that I've mentioned a few times. This fellow is Old Reg, the Original Insect, one of the arch-Maintypes of the Multiverse, and yet another of the extraordinary cast of characters inhabiting Carter Kaplan's novel.
Very nice colors; the rich greens sprinkled with light grays here and there, and the subdued blues in the very back. Great design and posing on him. Strikes me as somewhat resembling the old paintings and such of Asian emperors/warlords/elite soldiers/etc. [link]
