FEZ Warrior by Luches FEZ Warrior by Luches
Bardanes Rex a former captain who served in one of faction within the Hordaine Army during its many years of internal strife. He disappeared after the conflict was suppressed and his faction defeated and disbanded.

After years of wandering he had since came to serve the Royal Alliance of Cesedria, swore to protect the Sacred Queen Tivarece after she rescued him during his years of wandering. But unknown to the Queen, while the hero Winvene protected her in the open, Bardanes strive to root out any opposition and threats in the shadows.

And he take great pride in his muscular physique, he believe all man shall strive to be strong.


Art Note

Hahaha initially I had thoughts of doing a female character...but I just felt that I had been doing too much females for the last year, and if I am going to be a character in an MMO I will always choose a male warrior type character :D

So here you go, a male warrior, and not the typical pretty boy warrior that will dominate a japanese rpg, but instead a more matured seasoned warrior who had seen more the world than most.

And I decided to present this like what you will find in a normal artbook. Oh yah if you like it, support me by +faving it XD

He's a man wearing a woman's armor? Why the fuck are his thighs and abs revealed?? And why is there a piece of cloth instead of armor to guard his groin?

Isn't that how all armor work?

Giving up certain perks so that you can gain others.

And also if you studied martial arts, you will also realise that, the abs region is very
important in executing moves, keeping it less restricted will give you a higher degree
of movement and speed.

But but..without the pretty boys, how'd you bait the girl gamers :P

The fur and intricate details are a nice touch, though more variety with the metal colors would be better.

Yeah. Just based on the armor and weapons displayed here, you immediately think MMORPG. And how you built and bulked the character definitely fits the bill for "warrior." I notice he has gray hair and a brown beard, but other than that he looks fantastic. Like you said, it's better that he looks seasoned to give off the impression he's experienced other battles.

Nice work.

I love your style, more specially, the metals. I dunno, but for some reason I love how you do metals, the train in the race, the armor here. I think it makes it look like... I don't know how to explain, but it's the way you do the highlights, I think.

I see that you made him a different kind of "manly", I mean, a armor like that is not exactly what a normal "manly" character would use. The hair too. I think he's a... mainly metrosexual perhaps?

Anyway, good luck in the contest, I'm rooting for you! =D

well~ this is a character design competition afterall :)
so if I had choose to go all manly (Kratos-style) there
wouldn't be much costume design to play around :D

While choosing to go with a character like that can really blow your chances, I think it's probably much better for you, as an artist, than to make generic looking ones.
But again, best of luck for you!

Beautiful job! His armor is intricate, his weapon awesome, his pose powerful, and the colors brilliant! You made him quite dynamic, with several unique elements, and your choice of an older man is both more unique, impressive than most people like to be! Good fortune and blessings with the contest! I know you drew a real winner here!

Nonsense! There's already hundreds of thousands of female fantasy characters, so a male one is a nice change, particularly since you chose to do an older man! I think he's quite original, and an excellent contender for the competition!
