I am currently painting this illustration for my world Genius Loci.
I have two problems. I'm not sure my lighting is correct - one purplish lightsource for rim lighting from behind, one lightly orange from behind the viewer.
Secondly, although this is a mere illustration to accompany a text, I fear it might be a tad too boring. Any ideas how to keep the viewer awake?
I'm using Painter 12 and Photoshop. I referenced a more or less correctly lit photo of myself and made the head in Sculptris.
Thanks for any help.
