late wip, any last minute ideas to make it better??
not happy with the necklace and wristband. colours still to be edited

 Beaten to the concept but tried my own spin on it, used mr kenneth fejer's fighter portrait as inspiration (> and all his other lovely work !!!)

A different concept for the Gems weekly. Didn't really like where it was going so left it unfinished.

Ended up trying my hand at a more rendered and sci-fi style
