Reckless Deck Challenge

Another art challenge from Infected By Art. This time, it's a character concept based off of a randomized set of attributes generated after clicking this link. My character had to be wearing a half mask, leather/goth attire, cyborg/robot parts, and carry a bullwhip as their weapon. With such competing characteristics, I tried to think of a background for this character that would bring them all together. I decided to start with his bullwhip, which is something of an unusual weapon. I thought of the original use of a bullwhip (herding cattle) and went with a western-inspired setting for the character. The desert environment he would be subject to seemed like it would work great with incorporating the optional "inherent nature" attribute, which in my case is reptile attributes. Every addition to the character would in some way reflect that setting. The shoes underneath their Gothic belt-embellishment are, for example, cowboy boots.

There's still plenty of time to enter! Check out the details on the website.
