Thanks very much, Joe. The background was an interesting mixture of painting and textures.
Sure looks creepy,great work and i love the sun god hyroglifics in the backround
The likeness had never struck me. I may well get back to more cheery stuff soon.
looks like quentin tarrantino. cheer up)
Thanks Ivana. The background was an iteresting experiment with fairly rough painting (based on Egyptian wall carvings) and layers of textures and gradients. Glad you think it works.
Great work,I love his face!The background is fantastic too!
Thanks, Bill. I was aiming for a traditional painting look, so I'm glad it worked. I think the various textures I used helped.
I like the earthy colours Malcolm, I thought it was traditional media at first so I reckon you did great!
Thanks, Rita. Creepiness was something I was aiming for, so I'm glad it works.
Thanks very much. The eyes were based on those of a crocodile, but with round pupils instead of the reptilian slits.
Hi Matthew. Thanks for your kind words, they are very much appreciated. All the textures, including the skin, started life as photos of concrete paving slabs and lichen-covered bricks in my garden. I'm pleased you think they work.
Thanks, Kirsi. I felt the colouring was quite important, and I'm glad you think it has been successful.
Creepy - but great done
Good work. You've created a very interesting, intense face. The eyes are just fabulous; the green tint sets them off perfectly. I'd hate to run into this guy day or night.
Hi Malcolm, really nice. The wall is particularly well done and is a fantastic backdrop for the whole image. Some really intelligently used textures there. I did something similar on a recent piece of card art but it's not as good as that my friend!
Hi Malcolm! Very nice soft brown tones you got there in the skin.. Great evil looks. The background looks great too!
