We all have struggles within ourselves. Which persona will win? Completed in 2015.

This started out as a ref sheet for a very complex character. To be honest, when I did this (started about 2 years ago), I’m not sure that I was really up for the task. I love challenges but this one was ridiculous– a fantasy species, 4 different action views of the same character with complex armor and a very particular patron. I went through dozens of drafts and struggled with most every aspect. Finally I had to put it aside for about about 6 months while I took care of other priorities. Eventually I finished it with just 2 of the planned characters. As with everything I do, it was a learning experience. As with the two versions of Kyper fighting each other, I fought myself through much of this piece. By the way, Kyper is a sergal, a fictional species created by a Japanese artist that goes by the pen name of Mick39. He has created several planets, species, and races with a rich history in what he calls the Vilous Universe.
