Champion Before Dawn

Was spontaneous after another shoot like it, as I wanted one for myself. but later found it nice and applicable symbolically for me in my life.
I went for more warrior body paint than the others. As I'm a warrior in the army of God. And Im fighting so many things in my life. I dont like to hurt a soul but I do love punching a punching bag amongst other things. "His hand uplifts me"
The harsh contrast and darkness can be symbolic for my depression and trying to be a light and overcoming it. I chose champion because I'm going to conquer this part of my life, and I chose before dawn, because Ive already started the fight and I know I'm close to winning it. But the dawn hasn't come just yet.
Enjoy the piece.
