Predator: Gladiator Salute by rachaelm5 Predator: Gladiator Salute by rachaelm5
This is a requested pic for ~yen-ta's friend Troy.

The Predator is called Sinaru, but simply having his name as the title just didn't tickle my brain. I got to thinking about it, and I decided that he looks like he's in some kind of combat pose, getting ready to hack something into small, bloody bits.

The first idea that popped into my head was "Vogue", with Madonna singing in the background. But that's not very macho, is it?

The second idea, and the one that I decided to go with, was when gladiators say, "We who are about to die salute you!"

So there we go.

Accomplished with ink, watercolor and Prismacolor pencils.

Everythings just wonderful. Lively, colorful, unique. The Predators even get their own skins just like various wild animals, it's so lovely~

Thanks!

The variety of skin colors was something that I really liked about the old Predator action figures. There was a jet-black Predator, and a "lava planet" Predator all in red, and various shades of brown and green with spots. I always thought those were really cool ideas. :D

I'm glad you applied them to your art, the movies do not much bother to get colorful~

Thanks!

LOL - It's really the overabundant detail that drives these designs. I *can* make simpler armor... I simply choose not to. ;p

Thanks. I'd been wanting to play with green and silver armor for a while. I was lucky that the guy who requested this Predator granted me the opportunity. :D
