Iguana Portrait, Front Facing

For today’s portrait I painted  the facing view of a Marine Iguana. It looks quite monstrous and alien when it is facing you directly. Me just drawing the face and not the entire body doesn’t help.  It reminds me of Jabba the Hut. It has some errors, but I’m too tired to fix them. Painted it entirely in Photoshop with a wacom tablet. Time spent on the artwork, about 50 minutes

Here is the photo I used as a reference :http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Marine_iguana_on_rock.JPG

  1. Even though you say it has some errors, I think it’s awesome! Way better than what I could’ve done. I need to get a Wacom tablet. :)

    • thanks. A wacom tablet is a great investment. I recommend if you get a bamboo to get the Create, it has a much bigger drawing area. the Intros is the best but is very expensive.
