DAO: Sten sketch by rooster82 DAO: Sten sketch by rooster82
I previously had a poll on who from the Bioware universe I should do a modern photo shoot style painting on. Sten was the favorite!

This is one of the sketches. I'm still looking for a right pose for the painting. I don't know if this works, seems a little stiff. But I guess Sten is a stiff guy? Also, I didn't know what to do with his hands. :XD:

I want to put some effort into this piece as I tend to rush through a lot of my work... therefore, don't expect this painting to be done so soon. This is a little personal project to see how far I can push details.

I love it. I think it's a different take on him and it's beautifully drawn. I would love it if you would add it to "The Sten and Warden collective". (see my journal)

Again, exquisite work. Truly.

Yikes. I'm sorry for the late reply.

I'd be honored to be included in your project. Anything to spread the Dragon Age love.

btw, I really enjoy your interpretation of Sten. He looks like a beeftank- I would not want to get hit by him. Excellent work :)

Hmm... this is good, but the face doesn't scream Sten to me. I looked at some Sten pictures and I think I know why. His brow bone seems too... heavy and rounded? I think it's more flat like in this picture: [link]
And his cheekbones may not be round enough. Just putting that out there :) Everything else is awesome, especially the build of his body and his lower jaw lines, and the tattoos are a fun touch. Good work!

Oh! Thanks for this pic! There aren't that many pics of Sten I have access to. Darn firewalls in this country. :D

Yea, he's a little too bulky here. Need to do more sketches.

When I saw this in my message box, I thought he was holding some sort of controller for a video game. Now I keep picturing Sten playing the Wii. :lmao:

His expression, as mentioned before, is really great and steely. The shadows on his brow really help draw your eyes away from his broad chest and up towards his gaze. And I love his hair. :D

Great job! :highfive:

I agree with swordofthelight - put his sword in there! And a goatee sounds hot. :eyes:

The goatee! Just like in the trailer! :D

Great job, looks really natural. Might I recommend having him pose with his sword; he considers it an extension of himself after all. Also, you might want to add hair to the sides of his head an why not even a goatee? ;)

I love this! His expression is wonderful, especially those narrowed eyes of his. I love the shape you've given his face, and his naturally large build rather than GAR SOLID MUSCLES. Sten always struck me as big and broad without looking like a body builder. :heart:
