Luca face rendered by J1Star Luca face rendered by J1Star
So.. I've drawn um quite a few pictures of Luca but I haven't ever really rendered his face properly, and if I have it was from an old concept or he has his eyes closed or something. So here he is! Looking reasonably cheerful I'd say. ( :
Edit: thought I'd give a bit more info about why I am developing this character, I'm in the process of planning a fantasy graphic novel with elves as the centre point race. Luca is the main character and I shall be developing the others in the future too. Those who have followed the development of this character will know he's a grumpy dude with no friends and not a whole lot of luck. 
Luca is copyright to me as he is my OC, wahoo!

I can imagine him being mounted on a wall ;P
How do you do your shading? It's amazing and something I haven't truly mustered yet ^^; Also I like what he's wearing around his neck, is that a significant item of sorts?

Thank you! I started off by taking a darker shade of the block skin and applying base shadows. Then I adjusted the colour with recolour balance tool to get a slightly different hue from the block. Then I just blend with a low opacity brush and apply a soft smudge brush on scatter to help. :) He wears a lot of jewellery! The green gem was his mothers, and the other beaded necklace was a gift from a previous lover- turned friend :D

I might have to play around with shadows on my next drawing, let's see what happens :D
I'd love to see a collection of his jewellery, all stationed in a fancy cupboard.

I plan on drawing his room one day, it's messy but full of shinies!
