In the distant future,  society treats both magic and science with equal respect.  The benevolent Council oversees the teaching of magic with equality and care…or so it seems.  In reality, some on the Council are using magic to further their own sinister ends, and eliminating those who get in the way.  There is one who stands against these rouges–Gareth Hauser, once a valued advisor to the Council who left.  Striking out on his own, he plans to disrupt the plans of the Council and protect the powerless.

About the Author ()

Hello everyone, I'm Marc McKenzie, and this is my second year taking part in of this challenge. I've been a freelancer for the past few years, working in animation and creating commissioned work for clients including the New York Times. There have been ups and downs, but...that's life. Honestly, though, I enjoyed taking part in the challenge last year, and I hope to do my best this year...but I hope that everyone does their best and has fun! Ironically, I never really set out to do art at first. I studied something completely different in college and it was only because of an art teacher that I changed gears. Currently I'm living in Hillsborough, New Jersey, working on commissions, trying to find full-time work, and being a doting uncle to my niece.

    I like his coat thing, also those shoulder and elbow pads/guards/whatever. He looks like a scrapper to me! Another thing, what’s with those three golden shapes there? Are they significant of anything or just there to create a visual effect?

    • Thanks! Glad you liked it(or rather, him!).

      As for the shapes…they’re pretty much just for the background, nothing more. It’s something I sort of ripped off from Patrick Nagel’s works….

  2. I like the angle on this. Great job with the profile of his face and the folds on his cloak.

    Ditto with the angle, over the shoulder “Don’t you dare try anything back there.” look with a smirk makes it very cool!

    I would love to see this character and my character Excalibur go into battle. 🙂
