Royalty

A painting for Avalanche of a king. I like how the colors worked out. I was nervous about the drawing early on, but it worked too. I am really trying to give my paintings more depth and more complexity.

I can't imagine how huge you will become if you add more complexity to your works,
really, you also f****** rule!!!

Hah hah! I really like this guy's face. I feel like I caught him doing something and he's calculating an excuse. Great job on the crown too.

That has to be the greatest visual documentation of a Burger King crown in the history of the world. Top notch work as always.

Thanks for the comments.

samwise I do use reference almost always but for things like this I use one or more basic references of an old man's face just to see all the subtle muscles and bumps on the face.
