Artakha, ruler of Artakha, my artwork (Canon Contest #2: Meet the Maker part 2, Art)

So, here´s my entry for the art contest of Artakha.

As you can see I did it in more of a painting style, I think it fits the ancient look of this character better, It took a lot of sketching to get to this point, the reference came from the original bionicle movies and transformers. There was a lot of debate about how the runes should look like, I took a creative liberty and make them something different, the inspiration for them came from the Disney classic film “Atlantis” the runes in that movie have this bright blue colour which I thinks gives it an interesting ancient look, but honestly the are just random symbols and don´t have an actual meaning, let´s just say its an old language the great beings used.

The mask, as you can see, is the same mask used by the winning MOC, by @Connor_Hoffman, designed by KhingK, I just think it´s perfect, but since it is one of the three lengendary masks I decided it should be gold, as the other two masks.
Here is a closer look at it:

Thank you some much to Khingk for designing this awesome mask, all props to him.

Finally thanks to @Connor_Hoffman for creating this awesome MOC and to the TTV for hosting this contest.
I hope you like it and I´d love to hear your thoughts.

PS: if you want I can make another topic with my drawing process.

This artwork is really excellent in my opinion, somewhere between the Miramax films and the styling of MNOG. Nice work.

Amazing! I’d absolutely love to see another topic about your art style, I’ve always wanted to figure out how to paint like that.
