Monarch of Duality was the excellent theme for the big CHOW (Character of the Week) #300 challenge over at conceptart.org a while back. Needless to say, I couldn't resist giving this one a go. The piece below is what I came up with.
I've also created a little GIF animation, to show how the artwork evolved from a pencil sketch into the finished painting.
