Alright, so I'm trying to capture the feel of this faceless assassin following clues to his target, or something along those lines.
Alright so this is where I'm at. This is only a couple hours in. I'm going to render out the sword on the guy's back next to give the impression that the one in his hands does not belong to him. I'm also going to put blood on the blade he's holding and maybe some blood and scratches on the nearest tree in the background, tying the sword to the location.
I'm wondering though what you guys would do to give the impression that this guy is a hunter. I put him in black and made him faceless to give an assassin feel, but I really want to express that the sword is a clue in an investigation, and not have the painting be just some guy holding a sword. So, if you have any ideas feel free to blurt them out.
And of course feel free to critique whatever.
