felt like drawing again, but got stuck in a dead end on my previous WIP, so decided to start another on the side... stilll need a lot of practice with this new technique but i feel a little bit more confident now...
I'm losing the shape of the head, good thing i saved the original sketch to correct it. I think to add a little something to the right with the smoke from the cigar. Well, hope to be able to finish this one soon!

Hi Stalk, thanks for replying! I'll be extra-carefull with the overal lighting and colors... now i'm thinking that the stones of the bridge should be lit by the red light of the sun as well, killing the contrast i want to achive between cool-warm areas... I'm open to suggestions...

I like the lighting so far. Good colour range.

I think I just noticed something that I didnt notice before..are you planning on putting him in front of the wall..I was under the impression that he was leaning on the wall from the other side..It might look good with him in front of the wall and that would totally be your decision but going along with the title I think showing that even visible barriers keeps him away from the thing he longs for shows that nothing is going right for this guy..also visually i like the long horizontal created by the wall..But if you werent planning on putting him in front please disregard everthing I just said..:thumbsup:

Hey, wow. Really nice job with this. His expression and body language are perfect, and the colors so far are gorgeous. Can't wait to see more progress. :)

Here's a samll update. Big thanks to Goro for his generous advice. I will finish this one, so i can go and finish the tiny warrior too! yes i will!
Oh, and a little poll: please help me decide wich logo do you like the best and why? can anyone easily spot where the Patroclo features are in some of them?
I'm liking "e" the best so far...
ok, good night

I really like this. Not sure if it's intentional but I can't help thinking this is Charlie Brown all grown up, still standing behind the same wall and still waiting to ask the little red headed girl for a date. I was liking the dark sky you started with, as though it's clear to everybody but him that he's been stood up but now I'm not sure. There's a wonderful optimism about the sunset -- this is the moment where we wonder if Chuck finally gets the girl after years of longing for her.
What's better, showing Chuck preparing to kick the football or seeing him fly through the air after Lucy's pulled it away? It's a similar question IMO. :shrug: I'm eager to see what you decide.
BTW, I prefer "e" also. The chunky, curved letters are VERY Patroclo and the flourish above the first "r" looks quite dashing. "c" is also good but I prefer "e" because of the way the "S" has an incomplete tail.

amped up the size of the canvas to begin detailing, but not so much so my computer doesn't explode (2000px width x something height)...
Hi Ilikesoup, thanks for commenting, your words are always welcomed! I'm really impressed with your idea about Charlie Brown, couldn't thought of that. It brings a whole background story one can think of...
Thanks for your input about the logo, I think E it is too.
P.D.: by the way, I'm very curious, how is it that something can be VERY Patroclo?? what are the features of patroclism?
'Till next update...
