Mr. Andrew Ryan of Bioshock by digitallumberjack Mr. Andrew Ryan of Bioshock by digitallumberjack
"It was not impossible to build Rapture at the bottom of the sea, it was impossible to build it anywhere else" - Andrew Ryan.

Andrew Ryan. A rebel, a visionary, an engineer, a man of many ideas but most importantly, the founder of Rapture, the underwater dystopian city for the best and the finest in society.
I would like to capture the grandeur of Mr. Ryan in my new piece with the concept of geometric gold cast portrait.

Data/Credits:
Vectors of Mr. Ryan and mechanical background were both done in Macromedia Freehand MX.
Finalized in Photoshop CS
All vectors except texture.
Texture by malchick 1-stock

I have to say, Andrew Ryan is one of the most fascinating video game characters I have ever encountered. I especially love the audio logs that detail his back story, showing him starting out as a man with a vision, and then slowly descending into madness.

I also like this picture. :)

This is fantastic. It captures that steampunk essence of Bioshock. Quick Question though..what font did you use for the R? Is it a font in Photoshop CS5?

Oh, the style for this was perfect... I can see this cast in bronze or gold and hanging above his desk in Rapture. *L*
