OC: Ranger by artastrophe OC: Ranger by artastrophe
I wanted to work on painting some original characters again but then I realized I already had some decent ones started--it's just a couple years ago I didn't really know how to push them farther so I just called them "finished sketches" and left them alone.

So this is me revisiting an old piece for fun...


Not saying it's super-polished or anything now (couldn't really find any good clothes references for what I wanted :P) but I thought it made for an interesting contrast. ^^

Beautiful work :heart: Great choice of colour palette, and brush work~ it gives the piece a sense of antiquity :clap:

Wow. Is he based on any real-life person's face?

Well usually what I do with portraits is take several different references and sort of mash them together onto my own character sketch... so they may turn out looking like a few different people and no one! xD It's usually the lighting or coloring from one picture, the angle/proportions from another, and maybe a few facial features from various celebrities or anyone I can find a high-enough-res image of that fits my character concept.

I just don't remember for this one specifically, since I was just refurbishing a much older picture... but I guess the short answer is, "kinda." xD

Very nicely executed, beautiful shading and texture plus the man is quite a good-looking one to boot.

inorite?? xD the original one is a pretty good example of how all my pieces look during the first couple hours... these days it's just a matter of piling on the extra time/attention before I get bored and wander away. x3
