Eagle Knight by Calmari Eagle Knight by Calmari
I quite like the mood of this one. The setup might be boring and still, but it's because my original intention was simply to do basic armor study/design. Got exited and carried away and this is what I ended up with.

With the armor design I had multiple resources and models in use but still I wanted the helmet to have an original eagle-like shape to it. Also as a fan of native indian culture, I took reference from their war paints and feather headpieces.

EDIT: Now available in the Prints shop!

You're one of the most talented artist (or maybe worker in Ministry of Silly Walks?) I've ever seen.

Love this, the engraving on/in the metal makes it look so cool! Although I was wondering... any chance of a front view? :)

Onpas hieno design. Etenkin pään ja olkapään kuviot on mielenkiintosia. Kovasti näyttää että on jonkun kulttuurien symboleita joka tuo kivasti syvyyttä ja tarinaa tähän.

Viitta ehkä pikkusen iskee silmään liikaa, tuo kirkkaan punainen kun hyvin kerää katseet. Tosin maskin punainen väri kyllä tasapainottaa hyvin.

Ei kyllä hirveesti sulta tuu näitä uusia töitä, koulu vai intti? =D

Tänks! Jepa, koitin noilla yksityiskohdilla just kerätä katseet tohon hahmoon, pois räikeestä viitasta.

Joo ei tänne tule hirveesti enää laitettua töitä! Ei vaan tuu tehtyä enää niin paljon kun on just koulua ja töitä. Eikä semmosta graafista suunnittelua oikee sit tänne laita :D

I like this a lot. And you did a great job of incorporating a Native American influence in a way that that was not an appropriation but comes through as an inspiration for an entirely new design.

I dont think the setup is boring at all on the contrary it´s classic and tasteful. The light also compliments the character very well and the details give a very good sense of texture. And the red cape gives a passionate finishing touch.
