Opacity by MelissaFindley Opacity by MelissaFindley
A speedpaint of sorts, because I really wanted a new background for my Twitter page. I like to think of this guy as a brother piece to "Devilish". Will I ever color him? Who knows. I kind of like the silvery grayscale.

Incidentally, this is my first "painted fully in Photoshop" piece in several years. Normally I do almost all of the painting work in Corel Painter. Also... he might be the first blonde guy in my gallery, aside from Jareth.

The shading on this is fantastic. And his face is quite well done. I sure as crap can't draw human faces this well. His horns are also very well done, as are his eyes. His expression is very nice as well. this whole piece is just very well done. I like it.

I like the grayscale, it makes it seem more ethereal.

There's something about his mouth that adds such depth to him. I feel like simply from the picture I know what kind of mask he puts on for the public. Cocky, but not overly so because he can back up his talk.

The detail is amazing. and I just want to lick the hollow of his throat.

I normally prefer color, but I don't know as color would add anything to this one. Grey tones seems to suit this piece. I love the mysterious hint of a smile he has!

Gorgeous. This is an odd comment on one of those elements of the image you may not have even intended, exactly, but if he's "Devilish"'s brother... this one strikes me as wiser, and the other wittier. He'd be easier to trust, perhaps even easier to like, but by no means do I think it'd be a good idea. Beautiful lines and I like the very controlled contrast.

Is that what happens when a farmer spends too much time with his sheep? Just kidding...it's very nice. I like the grayscale...maybe up the contrast some?

Yeah, you should color it.
There's something weird with his right eye (at your left), it is out of place, when it should be towards and closer to the nose, in my opinion. It is awesome still.

Oh, he looks awesome, Mel!! I love the silvery look, so I vote no on coloring. Well, maybe. He's very yummy too. I love his eyes. You did an amazing job on those horns too. Incredible!! :clap:

Just fabulous. Did you use a reference for the horns at all or just by memory?

:iconmelissafindley:

Just memory. I think the only thing I referenced in this was the curve of his eyes at that angle.

I think it would be interesting to see a color version, but it's great as it is and I think it would almost have more life as a black and white compared to colored. Thanks for sharing this great piece with us. =)

I love this piece. He does look wonderful in grayscale, but I can't help but wonder how he would come to life in color. He has such a devilish come hither look.

Wow, that's awesome. I love how you did the horns. Too often people f them up. And it looks like pencil but it's pure digital, that's hard to pull off.
