In John Carpenter's movie "Ghosts of Mars" a Martian leader is the bringer of chaos and destruction upon human settlers on his planet, infecting them with a demonic need to kill, torture and destroy everything, including themselves. A sort of god of war. Fun, eh?
So this is a portrait of that guy.
Acrylics on canvas. My first painting on canvas!
Took about 2 months
Finished in October 2007
