He's not REALLY on a crucifix, I just couldn't think of a compelling title.
Working on a previous piece I was struck with the sudden desire to paint something a bit more personal. This is only my third painting in Corel Painter so I'm still sussing things out, though I think I have the basics of the program down. ^___^
The act of digital painting itself however is pretty new to me, so I'd appreciate any feedback you can give me! He's mostly finished, though I may yet repaint his lips/ear/face because something there doesn't look quite right. His hair also is bugging me. :s
His chest has actually already taken me 4 paintovers. I've been REALLY struggling with portraying the subtleties of his anatomy realistically; the first try looked like something out of the movie 300, ridiculously buff and over-the-top. The latest is the only one I was happy with.
I was trying my best to get the blending perfect, but I think perhaps I overdid it a bit, because he seems a tad too smooth now.
Thanks for any help you can give!
