Artistic portrait of Stephen King done during Kris Costa's Fly on the Wall online workshop.
This was an incredibly tough exercise, and I can't thank enough the awesome feedback given by Kris and my fellow colleagues.
Also special thanks to my brother in arms Ruben Valente (https://www.artstation.com/rubenvalente) for pushing me and all the great feedback and insights!
There is still a lot I would love to rework or improve, but I think it's beyond time to finish this and move to other projects.
Everything was hand sculpted in Zbrush and no external alphas were used. I used HD Geometry to get the fine detail, and all the maps were hand-painted with polypaint.
