FINISHED! - Thank you all who took their time to give me handy pointers. The finished image is here in this post.
I'm working on a few illustrations for a project and I'm thinking I could use some pointers. The work is heavily WIP and I'd probably like to take it a long way (also the final things going to be color, not b&w)
I want it to be a static scene, a bar, with three characters in it. The middle one's the main dude and the two on the sides as the "sidekicks" or just secondary. I hit a wall with tonality here - trying to work the middle guys face, but I keep making a mess of it.
I welcome any and all tips 'n pointers
