Hey guys! I'm a new guy here and this is my first post. I've been trying to study digital painting for the past years and couldn't seem to work on it consistently. So I decided to sign up on here so I could track my work and have audiences and critiques as well.
Here's my first WIP, El o El the Mexican Comedian:
One quick glance and anyone could see the irony in El o El's career.
He rarely smiles,never laughed, yet he is a standup comedian.
El o El settled on this career not by his choice,but because it is dictated by his family's long line of comedic actors and his own long line of credit with his neighbors.
As such, he has an extremely distorted view of things. In his mind, he perceives himself as someone extremely muscular,handsome and lathered with baby oil. Maybe this self appointed adonis complex is the reason he hates his job, thinking he is too manly to make people laugh.
He hates every minute on stage.
Sadly, the audience does too.
For now I am working on values and trying to have that painterly feel on it. I seem to have a hard time rendering the clothes' folds, it always ends up looking odd. Another problem I see is the rendering of the stains, I don't have enough experience yet about doing those so this is a big jump for me.
Comments and suggestions are really appreciated. Thanks for stopping by!
