Week 3 Is Looking for Adventure...

...or whatever comes its way. I wasn't going to try and use that part of the line in a title by itself.

Something is still off about this lovely man's lips, which is why they aren't inked. They'll probably remain that way and just be implied with shading and color. I'm still undecided about the rest of the car interior but I really don't want to draw it. Maybe a nice medium gray background will make it unnoticeable how lazy I am.

Also, here's more or less the big reveal of the painting. It's a cover for Watership Down by Richard Adams. The rabbit (Hazel) won't be black when it's done, but with oils the key is to start dark and build up the light colors, so black seemed like a good way to sketch him in. He might also need to be larger.

I also added some more realistic trees in the background and put highlights on the roots, though they might need some toning down. They're a bit distracting.
