Galen Erso
I wanted to do a re-paint of this…  but ended up starting from scratch with the face, I think this version is a much closer likeness to Mads.

I did this in grey scale previously and decided to add a clolour layer afterwards so that I could keep all my lightness and darkness values correct and not get confused between darkness and saturation, i've also fixed up the nose a bit as on a second viewing it looked a little wonky and narrow.

A troubled man faces a difficult choice, Galen Erso is the father of Jinn Erso and critical to the construction of the massive battle station named The Death Star.

I'm currently half way through the Star Wars novel Catalyst which tells the story of Galen and his wife and child, his desire to bring affordable energy to poor worlds and his complicated relationship with Orson Krenic, I grew quite invested in this character because of the novel and i'm so pleased that Mads Mikkelsen was chosen to play him in Rogue One.
Professor Lupin
I decided to have another go at Lupin (original here…)
This time I used more references on the actor David Thewlis (who played the character in the films) and tired to get his likeness closer.
I painted this in grey scale and then added colour with a color layer. 

House: Gryffindor
Occupation: Defense of the Dark Arts (third year)
Member of the Order Of The Phoenix.
I've been spending a lot of time watching video's and gathering references and thinking about what I want to learn next and not actually doing much actual painting in the last couple of weeks, I will remedy this soon!
I've been trying to post my latest piece all morning and i get getting this message every time i hit submit 'no valid response received' it's really frustrating, does anybody know why i'm getting this message?
it's a PNG file 22mb 7016x4961 i've managed to get it into my stash but not my gallery.
