Some Anthone Jones/Adrian Smith/H.R. Giger inspired character
nice, i like that arm
how on earth do you achieve the more coarse brush strokes that look like acrylic paint? Example: The whispy highlights at the almost look like hair on the back of the mask.
Smudge! I use a grainy brush at the beginning, then smudge it out with a bristly flat brush to make it look like paint being moved around. Then i detail with the basic hard round on top.
