I love the way you use the shadows and the colors layers. I am learning now digital painting but I'm very far from this. I wonder how could you manage so many shades and tones in every detail... One of my fav digital works, definetely.

I like his posture... he looks so sure of himself. Maybe too sure of himself. Probably comes with believing one is a prophet/being a prophet. :)

screams special relativity (the coefficient below t is also equal to gamma, which makes the equation look less nasty)! always a treat to see it in art www

Have you drawn out all of his tattoos? And if so, could I request a commission for them? I'm looking for symbolistic inspiration for my own

i wonder.. what in this picture took you time? do you mean the idea development?
because, as i know your skill, its not necessarily a big deal for you to paint - in technically matter.

cheers!
