Took me ages to finish.. well.. 2 and a half evenings actually.. That's a lot for me..
And yes, i'm still learning realism XD Think i did quite a progress while painting this one.. at least i hope so.. it taught me lots about lights, shades and stuff..
few references used to get the proportions and stuff correct.. painted entirely in opencanvas, no photoshop brushes and tricks ^_~
well.. hope you'll like it?
i might update later with some close-up's and tutorial.. *EDIT* - [link]
here it is
btw.. i really wanted to add some blood here.. but thought it would be just ridiculous XD
