    Thanks! I’m not too sure about the shading on the face but the helmet, rifle, etc. seemed to work.

    Very cool. It would be neat to see a series where you show a drawing get built step-by-step, eg scan it several times as you work from pencil to pen etc.

    K. I really like this A LOT! I can see your strokes and subsequent layers in this. His clothing flows and the light is so cool.There is no problem at all in seeing his form built in this wash. I really like Matt’s ideas of seeing this develop stepby step.This might be as valuable for you as pleasing for us because you may see something you like better in each step that you don’t see while you are rendering it. This guy emotes soul and I think it is yours showing through.
