Heart strings

This is an old pic I did around 5 years ago and posted on my deviantart page. I decided to redo it to show the difference a tablet and 5 years or practice (on and off, heh) can make. The thing is you never stop learning. I still learn something new whenever I spend long enough working on something.

I'll dig up the old one and add it later.

The hair is what turned out the best since I've never really been good at that part of portrait type stuff. Anyway ... Might try something completely different for the next one.

First post for 2013

Started a bit of a fan art piece. It's of Dominic West as Jimmy McNulty from The Wire. I usually just post a piece when it's done, but since I think this will take a while I'll post it step by step.

I've started out with just black and white to make it easier and faster to get the tones right, then I'll get to coloring it a bit later.

Here's what I've got for a rough sketch
