"By your divine guidance Commander..."
This is a MASSIVE tribute to one of my favourite kids TV shows: Starfleet
The character here is Captain Orion, right handman of Commander Makara, the bad guy (well girl in this case) and the feckless moron of the show to be honest. But, I figured, hell, lets make him a little more scary and zillafy him a little.
There were several things I wanted to have spot on, firstly the centipede biomechaniod symbiote had to be there in all it's glory and secondly he had to have that downtrodden look to him.
I think this show must have had a HUGE impact on me as a kid, as really a lot of my dark art can probably be traced back to this.
As far as speedpaints go, this was another good go for me. This was achieved in three hours over one evening. I'm immensely pleased with the result which again is a good thing for me. The only reference picture, apart from my memory, was HERE
All done in Photoshop with my wacom. There are several textures used on the face to add detail, all from my own stock (in this case of molten waste metal from a tin mine, interesting fact number one....)
