Steampunk Centipede by Hideyoshi Steampunk Centipede by Hideyoshi
Here is my Steampunk Challenge entry.
I chose a japanese myth about Hidesato, an archer who went and slew the giant Centipede by shooting an arrow which was dipped in his own saliva.

Dunno, how long it took.. I know I was using more time staring at the image without painting anything. It's a bad habit of mine when I work on 'bigger' paintings. It looses intuitiveness and swiftness in a painting which is bad.

I didnt have any reference, but looked at photos for the sky colors to get the time of the day right.
Some parts of the Centipede were quickly modelled and pasted in, overpainting.

here is some 75% detail shots:

FROM THE CORNER OF HIS EYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111

Great design on the archer's suit (uniform?) and on the centipede itself!

I know! It's a Medusa centipede - if you look straight at it, you will be turned to stone.
PS
Nice pants, mr. Archer. :icontehestareplz:
