Does that look like a wolf? I don't know I've never drawn an animal before.

This critter came to me very VERY vividly in a dream a little while ago. It was a bit different, simpler, but same idea. In the dream it was like I was at a party with a bunch of people I know but haven't seen in a while, then some how the party morphed into a Dark Souls level and this guy was the final boss. It had the same bronze head but its body was hulking like a gorilla and it was completely encased in loose clunky chainmail. On the mail which was beige there were like Aztec patterns in black all over it and there was a sort of cape or drapery coming out from under the bronze head. This was a super scary dream, but when I woke up I thought "dang that was cool!" so I wrote down all the details. This final design changed a lot but I like this more.

I was about to ask how much it would take to buy this model, then I looked and saw it was just digital art.

You are hereby dubbed a phenomenal artist.

the joints remind me of the puppets use by kankuro in naruto's early issues. Nice rendering, though I can't say I understand what is the material of the cloth.

It's supposed to be fine chain mail.

ok, wasn't sure cause I saw the heavy chainmail and your annotation about a chainmail brush in your step by step.
