Hoplite. Just had fun, dint really care for the background haha, and trying to economize my layers, i.e. limiting myself to 5, this one had 4.
Gr8 job, gotta love how he holds his spear!
nice translucency in them arms with the veins bro, and THEM HANDS
Amazing work, man. Really great feel, keep it up!
When you say "layers," do you mean like PS layers? So do you keep one layer as a sketch and then do a gray one, and then colors on top? I have worked in PS a little bit but not enough to develop any sort of technique.
yeah 1 sketch (dropped to 30 % opacity, on top of the whole stack), 1 bg, 1 painting, (on top of bg) and 1 for some post process stuff//blur. PS is pretty fun when you get to know the ins and outs of it. id suggest learning it just by playing around with it. theres tons of tutorials here on DA
