invictus by ceruleanvii invictus by ceruleanvii
This image was created for a workshop that appears in ImagineFX 57. It's about creating a male fantasy figure with a focus on anatomy and skintone, and was loads of fun to work on :) ! There's an anatomical breakdown of the muscles of the torso, how I deal with skin, color, texture, and some thoughts on painting male figures in general.

This particular guy is based on the concepts of the Greek and Roman sun gods Apollo and Sol - you can read all about my trials and tribulations with him in the current issue :)

LOL - it has just been pointed out to me that the spine of the magazine has a funny snippet from the article :) - if you have the issue check it out!

Nice work!
no wonder Roman emperors would pose as sol invidious, but strangely enough, just like the sun and arrows rise and fall in the sky so do empires.
