Havrok da Smasha
Portfolio piece I completed today. Been really trying to work on my shadows lately, and relax a little more when blocking the mass colour, to be bolder, and more definite. I feel like my shadows are starting to work better now - as they seem to getting more depth and interest, I think I'll try experimenting dropping the reflected light out into total darkness in a future piece (while still retaining some transparency/reflected light in areas here and there) to punch out the silhouettes and simplify elements which I think have enough interest to carry on their own, so I can see how that works out and compare the results.
Overall though reasonably pleased with progress on this piece. Right - onto the next!...
