Taiidan Emperor by DeepChrome Taiidan Emperor by DeepChrome
I showed you guys the Crazy Portrait I did after much wrangling with the age lines on him.

This is Riesstiu IV the II from the first Homeworld RTS game. Crazy as hell, more paranoid than mental patients, and evil to boot. The game information said he was 400-some years old, so I had to make him look aged, but not so old that it didn't make sense for him to be 400 without some kind of regenerative technology keeping him alive and rejuvenating him.

The red and yellow striped background is the default Taiidan color scheme from the game.

The 140 by 140 pixel size is because I had designed it to be an avatar for the Relicnews.com forums. :D No takers there yet, but who knows?

Done in Photoshop 7.0 with Aiptek digital pen and tablet. I went through about 9 WIP versions to get this this final one, with a lot of helpful advice from two friends, one of whom was ~MK01.

Homeworld, Homeworld 2, and all their characters, ships, and whatnot are copyright Relic Entertainment and Vivendi Universal.

He was, in the game. Evil, paranoid, and UNfriendly. Killed all his potential heirs so he could live on in his clones. Ruled with an iron fist.

You know, the Emperor Palpatine type. :fear:

Hehe, thanks. :D It was my first real attempt at digital portraiture, so to hear that is a good sign. ;)
