Was a bit of an experiment with this one. In the past I would block in the colour then paint up the highlights and shadows. With this one I decided to start with the shadow as the base and just build up the highlights. I think I prefer how this works over the old method.
I also experimented with some more textured brushes to give it more of a painterly textured feel.
The face still feels a little basic, but it turned out better than I expected, I left it last with the view that it was probably going to ruin the piece. I may go back and fix that in the future.
[update]: Of course I posted this image, and then realized I hadn’t finished the gloves.
So I’ve just re-upped the image with that fix and few other fixes to the ammo belt.
