First picture of 2010 XD

I was going to post something else but this is the only picture I have finished for now with a snowy scene ^^

It's always a challenge to draw a character with about as much facial expression as a rock and still manage to give the piece a sense of presence but I actually had a lot of fun with Shade. There is just something about his facial features which I really like so I hope I’ve done him justice.

And I still can't draw lips but maybe there is hope for me yet <__<;;;

Happy New Year Everyone XD

EDIT: Some major lighting and detail changes on the face and the mask cause I just thought it could do with more work ^^

I actually love how this looks, the facial expression does justice to the background with the picture itself. Fabulous work. :D

first comment: oh shitz O.O

second comment: i really think his mouth and the slight disapproving frown really complete the image.

I faved this a long time ago but I just saw it pop up in my faves on my page again and... this is so fucking beautiful. The character's design is lovely and you've really brought him to life.
