Wounded Warriors

A wip I have to follow threw with. It's a job I have a week to finish. It' for an article on preventing falls in wounded military (amputees).
Found some old paper patterns for the background.
I'm going to be putting a bionic leg on the left leg. Waiting for ref.on that.
Rendered the guy using a cintiq.

I kind of have an idea how I want this to look. I thought it might help me get a better idea on that if I did the face first. Instead of blocking everything out first. Plus I maybe making motion blurs, just not sure how much.

Here's the face I came up with. I more then likely will move the pencil line layer over this and change the color to more of a brown pencil line. also mess with the opacity in areas.

First off I wanna I say that I liked looking at your Portfolio- Great stuff, I enjoy your style. Second I'd like to say that this piece thus far looks great! Did you actually create the background thru paint or is that a scan- I realize you said you used a Cintiq for the actual sketch but I am referring more to the stained paper rough background image.

Anyways- I like it- Keep it up!

Is this image going to be published anywhere specific?

Thanks for looking. It's several scans. Not sure I can say the publication yet. I put the pencil layer on top and changed the color and opacity. Also modeled the face a little more.

In my photo ref. the guy has a long torso. Rule: just because it's in the photo that doesn't mean it's right. So I shortened the torso a bit.

Great work, this is the kind of thing I like to see here, showing the progress of a painting.

The only thing I would change, and you're too far along to do it, is to drop the good leg slightly, it feels a little strange so close to the body. No big deal.

I would not mention the publication until it's published, that's a rule I've followed for years as a professional illustrator and designer - although honestly I never show client work until it's finished, that's your call.

Can I ask which Cintiq you have? I'm about to drop the cash for a 24HD, and i'm going back and forth on the 24HD and the 24HD Touch.

Thanks. I use a HD. The touch looks interesting. I have not tried it but if the pen to screen has a better interaction and you have the money. I would go for it.

Here's the final. I also did a portrait of the head research doctor.
