Hi guys, just thought I'd post a work in progress.. took around 4 hours so far, what I would call my second stage of doing an illustration.. the next stage would be to blow it up, add colour and detail.
I posted this because I often think it almost looks better unfinished.. and It might be an interest to someone out there since nobody ever gets to see this stage.
well I hope anyway :)

... hey ...

Nice one, the face is almost looking like a photo. But where is he looking? Shouldn't he keep his eyes on his opponent?

hey.. thanks guys!! :) Well spotted with the eyes, I kinda fixed it a bit for now.. thanks.
Here's a small update, did about 2 more hours on his face just after I uploaded the first pic.. before I was forced to go out and drink lots of Coopers Red.. hmm.. won't have time to do anymore for a couple of days but I'll post as soon as I'm done!
by the way, my main objective in this excercise is to achieve a believable skintone.. translucency etc..

lol i don't like the way his skin shifts color!
it's almost disturbing, like those aliens. :D
other than that, i love it!

did a few more hours.. don't really know how long I spent, 2-3 hrs I guess. I always start working on something and then I decide to browse thru cgtalk.. then I lose all track of time and I wake up on my couch.

Well, I think this is finished.. I guess I could blend the edges a bit more but i'm calling this done... plus I didn't draw the pants for the guy on the right... too tired
hehe, just stuck it on and blurred it.

man that looks sooo sweeeet.
But i hate it!
Would have loved it if Kostya had landed one instead of missing one!!!
Looks 98% like a photo.

thanks fellas!, I think the skin needs to look more.. oily? I might work on it some more to see if I can get it photoreal just to see how far I can push it...

I think think it looks awesome. i would like to see a final render in black and white maybe like a old photostyle, just to see how it looks, that might just be me, but great work on the pic, man.
