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!
