This is the sketched unedited version (the original) of "Dust Warrior". On this one it's clearly visible why it's not finished.

It's called "Steel Tower" because of the following backstory:
"In an alternative world, where people are still bashing others around with swords, axes, hammers, spears, you know what I'm talking about, some guy (a king? Lord? At least someone important with an astonishing amount of money) wanted a new kind of unit in his army. He wanted fierce heavily armored soldiers on foot, and this is the result: tanks wearing armor 2 or 3 times the weight of normal full plate armor (so we're talking about ~50-75 kg), having no weapons or shields but rather using their steel-clad fists to pummel down enemies. While the normal people (farmers, craftsmen, etc.) started to name these soldiers the "Bloodless", the "Gray Winds", the "Unyielding", whatever, nobles and lords called these men "Steel Towers", or simply "Towers", because the fighting technique of these men in a battlefield is mostly just running at maximum speed to get that momentum with their huge mass and then just crash into the opponent, which reminds the nobles of the towers in chess, who move only in straight lines."

But wait, this guy's definitely wielding some kind of shield right?

Yeah... That wasn't part of my plan when I started drawing, but when I tried to only draw the fists/knuckledusters, something went wrong, and it looked horribly out of place, the proportion was completely off, so then I decided to just draw a shield and was I planning on drawing a semi-huge double-bladed battle axe...
