Edit 05-04-13 - I've updated a number of pieces to get them up to snuff in my portfolio and this one underwent some heavy revisions so I thought it'd be worth updating on here.
Check out the walkthrough for this piece here: [link]
Here's a piece done for our illustration class as well as for the Diablo 3 Portrait of a Champion contest.
Had a ton of fun working on this one and think it's quite a benchmark for my work in terms of complexity.
Will post up a walkthrough for this soon!
Also if you feel so inclined, feel free to vote for my piece in the official contest gallery! [link]
