Very impressive work--love that steely-eyed stare! It really makes me think of Mr. T too, and not just because of their similar hair styles.

How is the lighting inconsistent? Is there some rule that states that in paintings there is only 1 light source? I always wondered about this.

ask nes.
to me it looks like two light sources but a little inconsistent with the absence of
one or two highlights.
I really didn't even notice till he pointed it out.
still looks koll.

I thought so too until
a fellow forum member pointed out that it isn't consistant though.
still like it though.
I guess you could say that the left shoulder and chest shouldn't have that bit of light...maybe...it's still debateable, other than that excellent work on the rest of the lighting.

...ok the neck too, and maybe even a bit under the arm by the rib cage, but man you really have to stare at it for a while, the image still has a nice flow to it though.

yea. I think it's pretty good.
it's pretty natural look to it for computer work.

hey everybody thanks for all the comments :) i like to read my mistakes too, every single time I start a new paint, i do a quick render in poser just to check out the lighting, as I know for photography classes at school, (Im not saying that is the only true) is always better to use 1 principal light, one fill light (about 1 third of the main light in the opossite direction) and 1 backlight this light has an special property, of giving that rim coming from the background, this is the most of the times very strong, this light helps to separate de character from the background, this is the basic ilumination for portraits in photography and film, thats why always like to put that extralight coming from behind, :) thanks again for all the comments, as the title says is just an sketch, but i like to put my best always, so thanks for watching.
