“I loved cre­at­ing the char­ac­ter for this project; study­ing the Na­tive Amer­i­can tribes and cul­ture was some­thing spe­cial,” ex­plains free­lance char­ac­ter and prop artist Aidin Salsabili. “I gath­ered a ton of ref­er­ence with lots of de­tails. It was es­sen­tial to make the char­ac­ters feel soul­ful. Ac­cu­rately mim­ick­ing the Na­tive Amer­i­can war­rior’s make-up was very im­por­tant.”

The im­age was cre­ated as part of Art­sta­tion’s Wild West Chal­lenge, which gave artists two months to sub­mit their work. In or­der to im­prove his ren­der­ing, Aidin has been study­ing light­ing and com­po­si­tion. “I sug­gest black and white movies for ev­ery­one. They are in­cred­i­ble for bet­ter­ing your un­der­stand­ing of lights, shad­ows and com­po­si­tion,” he says.
