I'm taking a lot longer with these than I'd like to admit (they're supposed to be quick, loose, and experimental) but I'm consistently pleased with the results, so I can't chastise myself too much. Spent between 3 - 5 hours on this one, which is about twice as much as I'd hoped. The goal here was to nail the expression, but I found myself spending a lot of time working, and then re-working, the lighting of the brow and the space around the horns. In the end though, I'm gonna claim success (largely so that I can move on guilt free), and ignore the fight for attention going on between the eyes and the rim lighting of his head.
Moving right along!
