Elysium - KRUGER by Sheridan-J Elysium - KRUGER by Sheridan-J
Spent about 4 weeks on this, off and on in between projects. Thank god it's over, lol (Nah, I loved it)
Anyway, "ELYSIUM" is pretty cool, and I like it because William Fichtner. But Kruger is my favorite villain for 2013. He totally owned it.

This is the only way I could think of portraying his character. Seriously :lol:

Used this as a base reference ( img845.imageshack.us/img845/15… ) and just improved from there.
Photoshop CS5
40 hours ??
Airbrush + Texture brushes.
Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches!

Cool artwork.

My problem with this character in the movie about its evolution from merc to politician.

Why after he gets the face blown away, he develops aims of conquest?!

Yeah he was pretty cool. Just destroyed everyone else in terms of acting. Well, William Fichtner was still awesome and snooty heh.

I think, Kruger was French, due to his accent.

I watched the movie a few weeks ago (in order to fill time) before I had to leave for Fruitvale Station, and I'd like to say that he was a rather enjoyable villain. 'Tis a shame I didn't get to see the rest of the film, but maybe I'll get on DVD/Blu-Ray soon, who knows? 

Also, your realism is still amazing as ever <3

Awesome work! Almost couldn't tell it was a digital piece from the thumbnail! And yes, great portrayal! It is very hard to believe that this is the same guy who was derpy Wikus van de Merwe! o.0

Nailed the likeness and the deatil on this piece is really astounding! Love the depth of the beard and the metallic textures of his gear and facial implants. No doubting the fact that Sharlto Copley completely walked away with the film and single-handedly stole the show!
