learning to paint (again)





fed up with the low-contrast, gross looking stuff I always do from imagination, so I'm gonna try to do a portrait from photo-ref every few days.

This was my ref. I got lazy on the facial hair and it shows :(

Looking good.
The one thing I'd recommend is to make the lighting on the eyes look as damn good as possible and the viewer will fill in a lot of the rest.
Also hopefully the spambots will stop attacking after I changed some settings.

I dig it. Only thing i can suggest is maybe exaggerating the light/shadow temperatures a little more.
