Hello there, I'm not new here - I'm actually rather old... well - not old. But I've had a previous account here before b the name of ikor. Anyways, forgot my password or was hacked - either way I'm here to start anew!
Out of boredom i sketched this in class, so there is a lot anatomically wrong with it, which is actually being fixed throughout the process of coloring it. I normally don't do painted images on photoshop and this kind of lighting isn't my forte either, but I decided to step out of the box and give it a go.
Here are a few images of the progress on this image.
I'm going to fix his left hand to look like it's actually stroking the dead rabbit as well as better align his right eye. I think from applying pressure on that eye, which he's doing with his right arm, you'd still see the lower eye pocket like you do in the left one. I'm going to look in the mirror and take photos of myself using my webcam to make sure that I've got the anatomical tension right in the applied areas. As for his shoulder, I actually tried out his position and I mine were more sloped, so that's what the white lines signify. However I think it would be good to have his shoulders arched to equal the eager/pleased activity seen in his lower lip.
Idk - haha. Any critique would be awesome! The background and foreground will be added in last. I know you're supposed to do either the background or foreground first (normally background) but I didn't think I'd get this involved in this piece.
Anyways, thanks in advance! Sorry if some of this is incoherent - I'm in a rush.
