This is a personnal work with another approach of the design and the illustration, more realistic than I do generaly. thanks for comments. see ya
...and just for fun;
I dig the pose and composition, although the legs and pants look especially flat. It could use a bit more form even in shadow.
Very cool all around, but the pants (left leg in particular looks flat and disappears. it could probably just be a little bit more defined and make it so what look like brush strokes don't extend from the leg into the background. reall, though, the whole picture, upper body especially, is extremely cool and expressive.
El arroyo de la sierra, Me complace mas que el mar.
Thanks for comments. I did'nt wanted to define the legs, that's why it is so dark in this part of the image. For the pant > normally we don't see it...on my screen...
I really don't know if it's purely an artistic choice, but the body seem to be cut in half because of the same hue with the wall. Aside from that, COOL DEAL.
There are so many cool aspects to this, but I don't understand the lighting. The large shadow behind him seems totally out of place. The cast shadows from the fingers are nice, but there doesn't seem to be any lighting affecting the arm (nor is it casting a shadow on the head). The hat has a completely different light source, as well.
Just a couple oddments: the tiny space between two dreads where the eye is seems contrived and he seems to be wearing flesh-colored gloves (the fabric-like folds).
Very cool, though.
Very good. I think you may have lost some hihglights on the pants and the arm with the gun some a little neglected. finger s are a little rubbery. It reminds me of Phil Hale alot, lighting, uncomfortable pose, full figure.... good work. ill be back to check your stuff.
