eek, the other entries here are blisteringly good. Anyway I reworked the composition and lost the clothes. Just a quick sloppy digital version befor I start painting.

I'm trying to get back into painting after years of TD work, so I thought I'd try to keep the idea as simple as possible while trying to convey all the emotional content I could. In my initial concepts I was perticularly drawn to the idea of a physically powerful slave being dominated by a physically weak master. That the domination is psychological and social rather than physical. The idea became centered around the concept of a very powerful but uterly defeated slave. After playing with some concepts I thought I did not need the master in the image after all and felt their presence would be implied enough by the whip marks on slaves back. I wanted to try and keep the composition as cramped as possible to keep the slave trapped in the frame of the image.

So far, you are doing a fine job conveying a man whose spirit is definately broken.
Nice job so far.

I really like it that you're not going to show the master. It makes him seem even more powerful. It makes me think of when a slave is ashamed of getting beaten and doesn't want anyone to know.

Thanks for the replies, I'm a little intimidated by the quality of work here so the encouragement is definantly cool (Not that constructive criticism isn't appreciated either). It's good to know that the ideas I'm trying to convey arn't getting lost (yet).

A quick tone sketch to try to establish some base tones/lighting. Trying a few other things yet though... also playing around with some different framing.
