Portrait of The Heavy Weapons Guy

I was in the mood to paint a game character. What better character face to paint then the ‘sandvich’ loving Heavy from Team Fortress 2? My first portrait painting in the series that I experimented with two light sources, the main light from above, and a softer neon light on the right side. Since I made up the lighting, if you see anything I missed, ex a shadow or highlight, let me know. In the future I will paint the remaining eight characters. I used to play TF2 before it was invaded with silly hats. speaking of silly hats..

I didn’t use a single photo ref this time for the heavy but just typed “heavy weapons guy’ in Google Images (gasp) and looked at the bunch of thumbnails to get a idea how he looked. I made up the pose and lighting for this painting entirely by myself and kept it somewhat simple.

Update: Fixed eyes

I painted it in Artrage 4Time Spent: A little over a hour
