De primeras, este dibujo se viene a favoritos. El tema de los conquistadores y los tercios me gusta verlo en dibujos. Aunque, te comento que la espada, te hubiese quedado mejor una espada ropera o un estoque. Como dato curioso. Me gusta el toque añejo y desgastado, sin más ¡que viva el imperio! Un abrazo :hug:

Muchas gracias.Lo de la espada es una buena acotación. De hecho no he usado referencias históricas, por lo que seguro que su atuendo no es muy fiel al de la ápoca.

El atuendo en sí es fiel. Coraza, casco y vestimenta renacentista. Los soldados castellanos de aquella época iban armados con una espada toledana/estoque/ropera y una vizcaína [link] un modelo de daga española que se hizo muy famosa entre las tropas enemigas de Castilla y del posterior imperio.

Thanks for commenting. Yes, it's pencil based. I usually do the drawing on paper, then scan it, and then the digital color. You can see some stpes of the proccess here:

What a wonderful portrait! I love all the little details on his equipment and armor. It gives the impression that he's an old pro looking to get enough from his next adventure to retire comfortably.

awesome artwork, and the detail and materials in it brings this character to llife, and such items that match is age seems like a veteran if not a champion conquistador
