This piece was originally done for a cover contest for a magazine with an issue focused on the video game Destiny. I actually misread the deadline so I wasn't able to submit, but the point really was to focus on art again, and to celebrate a game I've spent quite a lot of time enjoying. Destiny is a great mix of FPS and MMO, without the big time commitments that other MMOs can have. It's also a game that's built up a fantastic community, who some members of which raised over half a million dollars for charity
by streaming the game recently.
I was particularly proud of this piece; a good chunk of what I wanted to accomplish appeared on the page which is not always the case. I sometimes find myself just hoping for 'happy accidents' and not sticking to the script. That can sometimes result in great pieces, but not always push you to do more interesting things or to stick to your guns when it comes to the vision you had for something. As always, feedback is welcome.
