Digital Art

This is a steampunk soldier digital painting in Gimp of Atonis Trogade, a Captain of the Suborean Guard and one of the characters from my digital comic project.  I’m not sure how steampunky this is though, I’d love to know what you think. Here was my process.

I’ve just added a Free Desktop Wallpaper of Umia to my wallpapers section. The darker muted colours should hopefully be easier on the eye over extended periods of computer use.
