FanExpo 2013: Predator 1000 AD Commissioned Art

Of the 11 pieces of artwork I have from FanExpo this year, 10 of them were based on Predator: 1000 AD series custom figures I've made. 4 of these were drawn by David J. Cutler ( 

Using the actual figure as a reference, he and other artists created their interpretations of these Predators. It was an exciting thing to see character designs I've put together reinterpreted in another medium.
