Bad Day at Work
The composition and idea were huge time consumers. I also had to study many photos with rain which was much harder than I initially thought. For example, because the tuxedo absorbs water, there wouldn't be droplets, while the face and, to some extent, the tie would have them sliding on the surface.
Please click for maximum resolution. The textures cannot be seen in the thumbnail. Took around a week of studies and 6 hours of drawing and painting. No references on the man himself.
I'll probably have to do a more interesting lighting next time. There is a good chance I will be enlarging this and putting his entire body in. The composition doesn't sit well with me.
