Dredd by ChaosAcathla Dredd by ChaosAcathla
My first painting of 2013 and I think i'm happy to be Judged by it! ><

This was fun, really loved the movie and thought it be a great way to practice painting shiny surfaces! This was quite experimental for me in a lot of ways really.

Only really used about three brushes just with different opacities and shaping etc.

Hands up if you want WIPS or anything! Otherwise i'm likely to be lazy.



And now on my Society6: [link]



This Me

EDIT Heres the WIP

Amazing colours and some fantastic rendering! And what a great shot that was too, eh? Heck the entire movie was one awesome shot.. The nose is kinda weird, though.. Nothing dramatic! But weird if you pay attention to it. I'm completely blown away by your awesome paintitude.. damn.. The lighting on his jaw especially! So good!

DREDD!!!

Sorry. I don't have anything really constructive to say. His face seems so realistic that I wonder why the clothing seems less finished.

:iconchaosacathla:
ChaosAcathla Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013  Professional General Artist
Thats fine, thank you for the comment anyway. I guess my answer would be that the focus of the piece is the face so I didn't want the clothing to dominate the over all image. Is there a particular aspect of the clothing that you don't think is up to standard though?

His clothing looks plastic? I guess? Less textured, maybe?
