whats up everybody, im working this in photoshop...im just copying an awesome picture i saw in the "black and white" magazine.. the picture was taken byRay Kennedy. im working on painting it digitally in photoshop just for practice and because i really like the picture.
anyway any advise on making it look cleaner and possably more realistic?
(the way im painting it is by starting out with a %50 grey, then adding all the shadows, then all the highlits then color etc etc)
thanks guys/gals

PS: the images is much darker than on my other computer. i need to get somthing to fix that..

:UPDATE:
here are two pics i just finished..its the upper torso with some color on it, and the jacket (what have done so far) with no color..just monicromatic..

Wow definately keep going. I like the detail and attention to lighting. Keep in mind the chrome will probably pick up colors/reflections from the bike in weird places... or the driver even.

actually, because of the possition of the tailpipe, you dont catch any reflections of the driver. i think its because the tailpipe is just poking out of the back. ill have to add more detail to make that more apparent because i thought the same thing when i first started on the painting
