Hooray, first piece of 2015.
Okay, so basically, with this drawing, I was trying to blend the themes of both a European knight (plated metal armor, cloaks covering the shoulders and legs, ornate shoulder armor) and a Japanese samurai (overlapping plates, larger, more loose-fitting pants and shirt under the armor, the obvious katana) into one warrior.
I like to pretend I succeeded on that front. Honestly, he looks more samurai than knight, but I guess that's not all bad. I should've added a shield or something. Whatever. Point is, I REALLY like how this one turned out. It was a lot of work, but I can honestly say I'm glad I put all of the effort into it.
