Oh my dear lord. I hated doing this, the drawing, position and proportions especially the face are terrible and I had to fight against not finishing it. The end result and the experience as ever are worth it. Far better to get this stuff done and move on to the next piece which of course will be so much better. I've learned how to at least fight through not finishing a picture. The image is part of a bigger project for an online game.

Paint practice! I've been taking a look at a paint tutorial by Marta Dahlig published by ImageFX. It's a good technique that involves starting with block, contour and gradual refinement with softer brushes. Don't know who the face is, just a study from a random pic of the internet. This took around 7-8 hours from simple pencil sketch. Still a bit flat in places but I've learned enough to move on.

It's been rather a long time that I uploaded something. Thought about Illustration Friday last night couldn't resist. Shades, the first thing that poped into my head. Probably playing to much Skyrim. Very rough and only about an hours work. Maybe I'll finish it who knows.
