Rust This image was created for a contest on artorder.blogspot.com. We had to interpret the phrase "A sword, a spade, and a thought should never be allowed to rust. So I came up with a character that embodied what this phrase meant to me. I imagined a veteran soldier, remeniscent to the crusaders, that fights for what he believes in. His body and armor tell his story. He has seen many battles and will see as many as his duty requires him to. It was done in Photoshop from scratch. It was worked in grayscale first, then I added the color and textures to bring the character to life.
