It's been a hot minute since I painted a piece that wasn't animal related. Even longer since I've done a piece that demanded this level of detail. This was a real challenge for me even though it's a pretty familiar face. It started as a simple self portrait that evolved into barbarian/forest lord me in no time. haha. I just wrapped up reading "A Storm of Swords" in preparation for season 3 of "Game of Thrones"...I'm gonna blame this happening on that. Overall this was a great learning experience. I tried out a bunch of techniques I've never really used before and of course now that I'm calling it done I see a million things I'd like to pay closer attention to the next time around. Gotsta keep learning!
