This is a $95 commission for Samuel D'Ora of himself, with details of the hands and a size comparison. The katana he wields has an edge that glows a royal blue, and on his metallic skin it reflects quite strongly.
This is what the ZBrush model was used for in preparation of this image after my dissatisfaction with the first attempt at this painting.
Media: Photoshop CS4
Time: up to 21 hrs
