Moakole - Work in Progress

Work in progress,

this character's name is Moakole (Moh-Ahk-oh-lay), and I want to create a portrait of something otherworldly. I feel like I am not there yet but I just need to continue to render the face and keep refining the light and shadow to generate the believability that the entity is looking behind them, which I am struggling with currently. The anatomy in the image was hand drawn with graphite and then scanned to my computer for color detailing and more design. I do intend to make a traditional gouache painting with my sketch once I can find my freaking white paint, then I will do another scan in and then a redesign.

let me know what you think!
