I continued to develop the original concept by making him look like a warrior king whilst still focusing on making him dynamic and interesting. This, however, was starting to look a little too human, but I still really liked the face so I kept that from the original design (Fig.02).

After looking carefully at my painting I decided that I wanted to put more of the focus on the blade, to make it look more like an important part of the image. I also wanted to change the overall appearance of the character so he looked more like a monk or mystical character than a conqueror or ruler. I kept everything in black and white to start with to work out the general appearance of the character and establish his new pose (Fig.03).

In Fig.04 you will see that I started to add some color tones and darkness to the image. I also refined some of the details. The changes that I made are subtle, but I was starting to form the idea of using warm colors on the armor, to avoid making it look too knight-like. For all of this process I used standard Photoshop brushes.
