Here’s the next character portrait. I shot some new reference a week ago, because I was having a hard time making anything work from the pictures that I had. There’s something that gets lost in translation between a man in a shirt and tie, smiling while brandishing a long sword and a brooding elf hell-bent for revenge. But that is the life of an artist. I still had to adjust the features slighty to imply a darker mood hopefully the resemblance stays intact, normally I wouldn’t care but I am painting it for the “model”. I still may add tattoos or jewelry to flesh him out some more but overall I think it’s on par with the others.
By the way I’ve added the Ice Dragon and Wizard to the gallery so check them out too.
