My newest deviation is not finished yet.
I just have a problem with the forehead, I don't know how to make a bald head very detailed (with wrinkles and all). Tried everything but it's still so blurry... :(

Any smart people who can give some usefull advice?? Or any usefull tutorials that you know?
Would appreciate it a lot :D

I would suggest first starting in grey scale, as your values are way off. And having some kind of photo reference with decent lighting in order to GET the values down, then add color later.

Values are the most important part of how an image reads, and this piece simply doesn't have a correct range of values that would make your forms read correctly.

Thanks, I'll try that. and I defenitely will use some references now ;)
This might be a very stupid question, but... what are values exactley?? :blushes:

Cant really help ya there but draw the dude and lightly put the wrinkles in and see how they look and what shadow or you might need to put in for more detail. Look pant or some kind of cloth and work on that til your comfortable with it then move on from there.

I would advise looking at pictures of old people to see how forehead wrinkles can sit.

Yeah I've done that a bit, but it's still hard to draw it myself ;)
Thanks :D
