Predator: Bowhunter by rachaelm5 Predator: Bowhunter by rachaelm5
This piece was inspired by the marvelous Uruk'hai from the first Lord of the Rings movie. I loved the ogre-critters' armor and I thought that it would translate very well to a Predator's muscular frame.

I also don't do a lot of detailed backgrounds like this, so I found the landscape (an amalgam of various nice spots in Colorado and Utah) both challenging and enjoyable.

I drew this with my Zig pens, and it took close to 30 hours to complete. I worked on it almost exclusively over my lunch periods at work. :D

Edit: Big thanks go out to :iconankewehner: for the very informative article on how to properly grip a bow and fire an arrow without causing yourself serious injury!
