Borus. (edited.) by Suzanne-Helmigh Borus. (edited.) by Suzanne-Helmigh
*Edit, made the image a lot lighter and added detail, gave him a facial and a haircut :P. (It's now ready to get printed for the comic con convention! :D) !



I've livestreamed it : www.livestream.com/helmighs
I can show the progress images as well if people want to see it. It started out quite different with an entirely different angle. Than I redid most of it.

i like the updates, though the hair and beard almost look too neat. ;-)  It certainly gives him a different character.

But I can't help but feel that there isn't enough texture in his face.

Middle aged, scarred, bearded man: a winning trio as far as I am concrned. I especially like teh sneer like twist of his lip and the angle taken to depict that piece, it's unusual but you pulled it perfectly!

I like this version better than the old one, even though it was really cool too! I don't know who he is but I like his looks, and that blueish glow coming behind him is just amazing. :)

eyes need a little work, not quite facing the same way.
Also I seriously don't recomend thumbnailing this, the eyes are really light and it makes him look kinda stoned.

Cataracts can have that effect too. The light may be blocked from the sufferer's eyes, but the viewer can see light diffused across the cornea. The effect may even make the eyes seem to glow a little and makes for a very fierce looking dude.

Excellent detailing, especially with the scars. Under his eye, is that a tattoo or a vein?
