I've wanted to tackle this guys awesome face for ages but didn't think I could pull it off. Anyway I sat down today with four references and a bad cold for inspiration.
My inability to move resulted in me finishing this in one sitting!
EDIT Changed it to a copy without the red in the background.
WIPs available if anyone wants to see some progress steps.
Painted from scratch as always using PS CS6 + Wacom Intuos4 Medium.
