Here is the final version. I got a lot of good feedback from ConceptArt.Org on this one. I changed the mask to silver because people were having a hard time telling it wasn't his skin due to the overall orange and yellow color scheme. Hope you like it.

I've been a busy little bee. After spending most of July sending out portfolios and the like I began working on this piece for Art Order's most recent challenge. The deadline was last Sunday, but I kept working on this piece afterward due to the excellent critiques I got on it at, and now it looks much better as a result, even though I won't get to submit it to the competition.

This piece is based off of a passage from a book called Crooked Way, hence the title.
