Cullen Bohannon (Hell on Wheels)


This is a study of the main character from AMC’s Hell on Wheels  I am pretty happy with this one, as it took me only about an hour last night, and it was all drawn on a single layer. What is even better is that I did this one using a mouse and not a tablet.  If I had the tablet, much of the detailing would have been sharper, especially around the eyes, but I may not have experimented with splattering the image with those “dotty” brushes that give this piece a nice grittiness, and help mimic pores so the skin is not as plastic looking. I did however spend another 20 minutes or so the next day (this morning) darkening areas around the neck and collar, since converting to jpeg lost colors again, and there was much shading transitions lost making those spots blotchy and muddy.
