Finally final...

Here is my beardman final. This was a tough assignment and I spent a week in frustration trying to get this dude done. He looks more like a Turkish sultan now than a hippie biker. My first attempt was a 3/4 view and it was an utter disaster. I'm not very happy with this one either... I keep finding little things to niggle over and it'll never seem done to me, but I had to get it uploaded. In retrospect, I may have had an easier time with Kathy (her face was really fun to sketch), but nooooo... I had to do the hard one. Oh, well, that which does not kill me makes me stronger.

Next week is going to be even more 'fun'. I think I will do a value painting of Bruce to get more practice and then colorize him.

I think you've done a great job. My favorite part is the hair. My only critique on that would be that it looks uniform in depth all the way across. The reference has sort of a chunk of hair on the chin and as the beard goes back around the face it recessed. You could show this with lighter and darker areas. on the sides.

I agree... it needs to have more depth to it.

I think you did a good job of capturing the skin tones of that guy, again like before, it looks better when viewed zoomed out. Dont worry about losing likeness, at least you followed instuctions of trying to exagerate, even Jason has to work a lot with a sketch to pull out likeness.

This is really good. I love the way you have textured the beard
