As usual, this one started with a simple sketch. I had like 6 different ideas going into this sketch and was struggling bringing them all together. Basically I wanted to take the idea of a knight and bring it into the future. I feel like knight armor and space suits share some similar attributes. That and I'm a sucker for both space and knights.
After the sketch was scanned in I brought the art into illustrator and just went at it. Not a whole lot to say about it. I am enjoying getting back into illustrator lately. I've been playing in Photoshop so much that it's a nice break to just play with vector shapes. That and I'm much quicker in Illustrator so it's a little less stressful for me.
I was pleasently surprised with how it turned out given that I was struggling so much with the initial design. Just shows that sometimes you have to keep working at something even if you're unsure how it will turn out.
