I began by making numerous moodboards to give me a good idea of how to approach the idea.
I then moved on to producing some character sketches using a Britsh actor (who's name escapes me now) as a basis for his look.
I then made some digital interpretations of my character's face with different hairstyle and a full-body pose detailing different clothing ideas.
I then moved onto the final piece which I admittedly rushed due to time constraints. I tried to give the piece a sort of aged look, not disimilar to the photographs in the moodboards I had produced earlier. I believe spending more time on this piece would have been beneficial; my lack of knowledge on photoshop and digital painting in general made this challenging.
