Roman by corelila Roman by corelila
Huzzah for contest entries!
Here's my entry for :iconflaming-spirit:'s contest. I didnt expect it to turn out this way, but it did.

So this is Roman, the subject of the contest. He's a vampire, hence the blood, and I dont know what happened with the pocket watch (or locket, or magical item or something) but it looks cool and I thought the peice was missing something, so there it is. (of course, if it should be changed to something else with meaning, I can change it.)

I dont know how many hours it took, and i listened to The City of Bones by Clarissa Claire while painting it. I used a bunch of refs, none prominently enough to link to, though. His face is a mix of Heath Ledger and River Phoenix, I looked at a bunch of leather jackets on google for help on lighting and the cracks, and I looked at a shot of the moon for the moon. The clouds are random, again, I looked at many things. I found an interesting shot of a guy with long black hair, and since Roman has long black hair, painted him that way.

Should I put up a mature content filter? I want to, just because it's the first bona fide gory thing I've drawn... and my gallery seems like wholesome oatmeal without it. :p
Wondering why my grammar is sucking? It's late and I'm tired.

I really like the way you rendered the jacket- it's very detailed and the folds look realistic. :]
