A character painting (mostly lighting study) I did two terms ago.
Instructor was like, "If he's a king, his posture should be better."
Not if he's a ruthless, paranoid, scheming tyrant. Like he is.
Those shiny plates on his crown, when colored, are actually patches of red stained glass.
I think I got carried away making him look evil and aged him a bit too much, though. ORZ
