Sorcerer Complete (More or less)
Well, there you go.
I do believe that it's important to try new techniques and push the limits of your painting. I feel like I did that here, but at the same time, I not 100% satisfied with the results. I suspect that I'll take these lessons and improve them on my next piece.
I'll tell you one thing, these pictures really highlight some areas I still need to work on with this.
The hand is a touch sloppy. I might need to clean it up a bit.
I'm pretty happy with the freehand. I can see errors in this picture that I couldn't see with my eye, so I'll have to go back and correct them. I think the biggest thing is that the colors seem flat. I'm not looking forward to going back to highlight and shade the freehand, but I think it needs to be done.
I tried a combination of metallic and non-metallic painting here. I'm mostly happy.
Ok, after a couple touch-ups, I'll start working on the base.
