This is rapidly turning into a two-weekly feature, isn't it? The irony is, it's not the time it takes to render the image--it's the time it takes to render it again, and again, and again, until the lighting looks good and as little looks weird as possible (which in my case is the most time-consuming part; I always miss something).
Still, it's a good thing I enjoy it!
Today's pin-up is Admiral Fayth, the protagonist and all-round force of nature from The Rose Queen.
Fayth lives his life from his shuttle, quite literally: he eats, sleeps and works from it, hunting down property that is, if not already lost, then is likely to be in the foreseeable future. Fayth is a thief, and he'd like to think he's damn good at it too (as well as being the hottest misappropriator of goods this side of eternity, of course). That's why he gets hired for obscure jobs... like finding a certain gardener and returning them to their rightful owner.
Shame it all goes horribly wrong, really. Still, every cloud has a silver lining, right?
As to the gun? Well, he wouldn't want to brag... too much.
