I stuffed him in chainmail. I put him on a horse. I even managed a few little pieces of armor here and there. And yet I couldn't get rid of those sunglasses. They are Dave. There is no Dave without the glasses, I swear.
Also, only Dave could raise a sword in a rousing salute on a rearing horse with dramatic lighting streaming in behind him and maintain such a deadpan expression. I mean, he's just... :l with invisible eyes.
This was a full day project. I'm not sure I ever want to draw chainmail again, at least not without first studying the hell out of it. How do those links fit together?!
That said, enjoy, and check out my other artwork! I've got fanart, original art, scribbly art, prints available on dA, and I'm considering commissions (feel free to PM me any time to discuss this if you're curious or interested).
