    Initial sketch,
    about time this image was put on paper, it's been bouncing off the walls in the (after)dark for far too long.

    I doubt I'll use the color scheme,
    This project is on a Masonite board, scuffed and autoborne white prepped.
    Once again starting with my special mix of AutoAir white, orange and a dash of black to rough in the skull and hands.
    Way over reduced black is being used on the cloak.

    I'm actually a few steps ahead on this MarcosD and you're right about the sepia...

    He looks like a prankster in the sketch, painted version is turning out very different.

    Almost everything is roughed in and the second stage of the skull has begun.

    I thought he might like a tattoo style cloak.

    Time to fill in the gaps,
    Mirror and clock fitted, everything has come together rather well.
    20170619_143201-1.jpg
    It does leave one question...
    If you get 7 years bad luck for breaking a normal mirror, what happens if you break this one?
