Finally, back to it. This is the guy I was using to do some blending lessons for friends a couple months ago. Now I'm going to go back and finish it up. That's going to involve painting the cloak...not bright blue. I have note-quite-blacks of purple, blue, and at least one other color. I'm going to use those and see what happens.
But for now, I just did his face and hair. I made the skin on the dark side and kept the highlight to a minimum because his face is in pretty deep shadow under that hat. I'm probably not going to highlight the hair at all.
