Space Pirate Emperor
If you read about the Iron Maiden job I did below then you'll know I did some cut-scene illustrations for their latest viral game as part of their 'Final Frontier' album launch.
I was asked by developers Matmi to draw a nemesis for Eddie in the form of a Space Pirate Emperor. I decided that he needed to look hard enough to f*ck with the Edd-meister so went for a cross between a Sith Lord and a death metal Ming the Merciless, whilst also referencing Matmi's cool spaceship designs as a guide to his outfit etc.
It's not everday I get asked to design a character who will kidnap Maiden's drummer and give Eddie the finger so he was mucho fun to work on. Here's one for the salty space dogs!
