Ok, haven't done one of these in a long time and can't promise they'll be coming back with any regularity, but this picture needs to be showcased.
Obviously, being an AMS picture, we must talk about the shading, because it is excellent, especially on the face, chest and stomach areas of the character. It really accentuates the non-standard skin colour and gives an unnatural glow that makes the character seem to be made of some sort of plasma or similar substance. I also really like the costume, the red detailing on the top and leggings are very well executed and I love how the boots have been done. Making use of solid black on a costume can be very difficult to get right, so using it in such a confined area really grabs the attention. And of course, as one should expect from AMS, the face has such character, which is accentuated by the powerful and confident pose. Sublime.
