Here is a painting i started today. i wanted to know what everyone thinks. I am planning on fixing his right eye (on your left), and cropping the image more. as for execution, design, lighting, texture, etc, what do you guys think?
oh, no references were used in the making of this painting
If I was doing this piece I'd have a lot of fun with all the little stretched and fused skin and muscle in the scarred part of the face. I'd also add some light to the scarred area, whether it's reflected light or the rim light wrapping around a bit to give the head a nice volume and bring out the texture of the scarring. I really hope you are also planning to do this instead of leaving everything smooth. It's the funnest part
