“Warrior” was painted in Photoshop as Promotional Art for Nox, a RTS Video Game by Westwood Studios and EA Games. Initially the promotional images started out fairly serious such as the “Hecuba” illustration but as the tone of the game was more light-hearted, the images became less sinister. The pose for this image was adapted to parody a well known  promo shot in the sword and sorcery genre for Cinema.
