Wrath of the Axe


Author Comments

In a future where the world is ruled by the tyranny of a corrupt empire, a man, decides to rebel against the system.
He was knowed and feared between voices as "Nero the Executioner," the coldest and best paid mercenary, with the record of more deads in the name of the Empire so far , until one day he suffered an accident that condemned him to become a partially bionic man.
After a while he recovered and tried into business again, but his place had already occupied. Betrayed and dejected, he experienced a moment of weakness, where he realized the harm he inflicted on so many innocent people in the name of the Empire and his egocentrism.
Remorseful he sought to redeem himself by joining the rebel group of the Steampunkers, whose objective is to overthrow the tyranny of the Empire. Once within the resistance, to control his energy imbalances, he decides to develop a technologically advanced axe that would feed on the energy that his own body emanates, allowing to balance it, thus creating a vital symbiosis between the possessor and his weapon. But the axe was much more than a simple weapon, also it was a symbol of rebirth and hope for him, and soon became in a symbol of the uprising.
Nobody knows where he came from, or who actually Dennard Waters is, nobody trusts him completely, but there is something that is true: his presence changes everything, and his motives are very clear: CUT OFF ALL THE HEADS OF THE TYRANTS OF A CORRUPT GOVERNMENT.


This was a real Challenge for me!!! XD


I love the color scheme and the background story. The details to the different textures with the metal and the hair and that blue light being so vibrant. Overall this is a really cool piece and my only very very small issue is with the girl near the bottom of the artwork. My issue with her is that one of her arms are hard to see, which might be something you did on purpose to show the blurred quick movement of the piece, but it's still a really good piece and I commend your skills :)

I'm glad you liked the story and the Illustration!!( I was thinking about the story ....mmm..... like 2 weeks maybe?, I wanted to develop a good character XD)
About the girls arm.... The blur is for keep the movement and create an Illusion of deep, because she is in second plane.....but I see I could give it some lights to contrast the color and make it highlight a bit more!!
