My own illustration of Andrei Taganov from Ayn Rand's novel "we the living." I wanted to capture the stuffy air of a small bedroom in soviet russia, around the russian revolution - early 1920's. Andrei is a contemplative, desperate yet boundlessly romantic man at the end of his rope. if you have not read the novel, you should give it a shot! its my favorite.
His head is really, freakin', LARGE!
On second look, I'd say it's a combination of both. Shrink his head and make his shoulders wider/larger.
but not a huge fan of this piece. The color scheme is great, but the anatomy, mood, wrinkles in the drapery, and overall feel is off. Her work tends to be very serious and a little dark, and the piece doesn't capture it.
"At least I'm not boring!" "Yes you are. And you're completely ordinary. And you know it."
finally figured out the photoshop problem. have been working on my thesis for two straight months. its due in december, hence the lack of art. soon though, soon! anyway, shrunk the head a bit on my character, and am going to clean up the lines and add a bit more detail soon.
