A new digital painting I really like. I painted it with the dull green background and kept all of his values very muted then thought of the blood in the background idea, which I think works extremely well to punch it with the contrast. Sometimes my digital paintings are done on the fly, on a whim, this one was a little more planned out and I think that helped. Also, initially I wanted a solid graphic shape for the hair similar to Sebastian's Tim Burton painting that was so effective. But once I got into it I couldn't stop, I really enjoy painting hair.
I'm having this agrivating problem with the blood and the red name turning fuzzy when I publish it. The jpg is sharp, sorry. Anyway, hope you like it.
