Navy Seal Character

No I have not forgotten to post. I've just been busy! I did however fall off the daily portrait wagon due to scheduling issues but I'll get back to it soon.

However, today we have a new character to share. A good old fashioned Navy Seal. Recently a client asked me to whip up a character design that incorporated specific gear elements etc. The focus was both on character and technical precision. So without further adieu, here is my version of a modern US Navy Seal.

Another Cap'n

Here is a page of studies that I did back in May but never posted. They are of the newest Enterprise Captain, Kirk 2.0 played by Chris Pine.


Not the best likeness. This time I used just a Bristle brush. 30 min.

This one was 20 min. I'm playing with brushes right now and trying to stick to just one for each image to get a good feeling for each one and what it's capable of. This was with the Charlie Bowater Custom. It paints nicely if you like to use washes/glazes to build up color.
