“For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
I started this somewhere in december 2011 and haven't worked on it until last week. Finally, I finished it. This time I didn't focused on drawing realism, because I knew that if I would set that goal, I would be somehow disapointed. I still tried, but not in a way as in my usual drawings.
The hardest part was definitly the guy. Why?
1. I usualy don't draw guys.
2. they both have smaller face than my usual drawings (which I need to practice on).
3. he's not an average guy you see in real life (Well, maybe some of you can see through guys?) I had too keep in mind what parts of the bg should be lighter or darker etc.
and 4. I did use a reference but tried to alter the looks of the guy...why? Because I based this of a reference of Robert Pattinson hehe... I did not want a celebrity in this drawing, but this reference had the exact right expression and position and I couldn't find any other reference. I tried my best to make it not look like Robert, but still have the same kind of expression.
Also I'm too impatient to draw trees
I imagined this scene with a snowy tree background...I kind of regret that I decided to go with it

The guy: based on this [link]
Coats: random google references
Feedback is appreciated
I will try to enhance the realism of the guy, once I'll find out how
