Anatomy study turned political...
I should of course have made a quick sketch first, but what started as an anatomy study, soon took on a life of its own. There are many issues here, but what bugs me the most is the “rendering” of the flames and the figures head that seems a bit small and poorly constructed. Also, the skulls are of varying size, some are floating in mid air, the chains could have been a bit twisted to make it more interesting, etc. This whole thing turned political at some point, and if I step on someone’s toes, that’s just too bad. Get over it, it’s only art! 😂 The man is a symbol of USA. Burning up from the corona virus, trying to break free from racism and conservative Christianity. C&C are most welcome!
I really like your neck. Very well done. I don't think that your rendering is bad. I guess it's the light that could be improved. Maybe a more dramatic lighting and more distinction between light and dark. But that is just my opinion.
