Soldier by OchreJelly Soldier by OchreJelly
Another Planescape portrait with a rather uncreative title. This one is of a regular guy...he's the youngest in the unit, and the least experienced in terms of battle. Of course, he's not young anymore, but he's not too old either. He's got a wife back home, waiting for him, but he's uncertain if he will make it home again to see her.

This one was done, hmm, late last year again probably. I don't remember. This is probably my favourite of the group of soilder portraits I did, though there are some holes in the technique that bother me.

I like this - still a young face, but with that wary/weary tension in the facial muscles that I've seen in a lot of veteran friends.

Wow, this is brilliant. I love the amount of character that comes out in his face - old but young, of course. Really like the frayed look to his torso armour as well - nice touch!

His face is gorgeous and the emotion is very nice, the metal detail jus adds to this piece so well :)

Thank you very much. I got a lot of practice with metal when I was working on that project. :nod: It was good practice I think. Anyway, very glad you like it, thanks.

GUh. *melts*
Your metal texture/colouring just gives me SHIVERS of AWESOME every time I see it.
Beautiful dark glow to the whole thing... his face is coloured beautifully. Great job on the subtle cheek scar!
Such great work you've been doing lately, OJ. <3
