The theme for my sketch group was any character created by Chris Claremont. So I decided to head into the Shi'ar mythology and pluck out Deathbird. I had fun with this one, as rendering her armor really allowed me to mix the cool and warm grays effectively. The armor details were fun, although the cabling got kind of tedious. I wanted her to have a smirk on her face that belied her true intentions, but I'm not sure I nailed it. In the end, it was an enjoyable piece.
