The Raving Lunatic by Aakami The Raving Lunatic by Aakami
Starbuck: So you don't think I'm nuts?
Lee Adama : I didn't say that. You're a raving lunatic. As demented and deranged as the first day I met you.



As usually, a reference was a photo: [link]¤t=starbuckphoto.jpg

I know I fraked up the hair and there's a lot of mistakes. So probably let's better call it a "speedpainting". Though it took more than 10 hours, which probably means it can't be called like that xD But I am still quite please with the effect, so.

Oh, and, probably, it's the last piece I upload before starting the new school year and ending the holidays!


From the same, let's say, "series":

no, it's 100% made by me :) I was looking at the original picture all the time, but that's all. I don't even know how overpainting works XD

thank you! ^^ I could've done better job on hair, though, but it's the hardest part for me ;)

I understand completely. It's very hard to do.

Speedpaint or not, it looks rather nice. Especially the little details such as the shadows falling along not-rectangle places, or the soft-but-not-mushy colouring. The hair is a bit stiff as you said, but it's pretty awesome all the same :D
