On this commission, the client wanted the body to be very dark, with a light purple "glow" coming from the cracks. I went with a very dark blackened steel for the armor, and a bright gold to compliment it.
The blood dripping from the hand started out as very thin strips from a plastic sandwich bag. I drilled a hole in the hand and glued the pieces inside. The drips were built up with super glue. A mixture of Golden polymer varnish, magenta ink and red ink was used to build up transparent layers.
