Capo - student project

I consider myself a traditional artist but after several years of using only pen and ink on paper and drawing primarily in black and white, I decided to explore a new medium - digital painting. This course seemed like a good place to start, so here I am!

This is my attempt at following Hardy's course. I am far from finished with Project 1 yet, but I will update this page as I go. 

The character I have in mind is somewhat of an ambitious Caporegime in the 1930's.

After painting the eyes and brows. He still needs hair, facial hair and lashes.

Finally added the hair and a few more details. Overall I am very pleased with how this has turned out!
