Lightning Returns: Dark Bahamut Exosuit by LongJh Lightning Returns: Dark Bahamut Exosuit by LongJh
My cyberpunk-inspired entry for the Lightning Returns Contest. With 1 and a half hours to spare!

The last two nights were a blur of painting for me. I wanted to refine it even more and add more detailed front and side view drawings - but kind of ran out of time in the end. Inspired by  Katsuyada Terada and Tsutomu Nihei.

Edit (28 Mar '14) - Now that the contest is over (congratulations to the winners!), I decided to re-upload the image. The original banner size requirement for the contest didn't really go well with the composition (due to me not accommodating it very well) so I hope now it can be viewed the way it was intended. Full resolution please!

Thanks for looking!

Free lancing is not too bad!  Perhaps you should knock on Lucas' door? I guess he has thousands of concept artist under his belt anyways...
Hey, so what do you do by day?  CAped crusader? LOL!
I work as an engineer by day and try to get into my hobby by night... unless I have to play Diablo with my kids!
