'77 Reminisce by GrungeTV '77 Reminisce by GrungeTV
More painting practice - this time using a photograph of an Imperial Stormtrooper I googled as reference.

The title comes from the fact that StarWars was for me, as with many others, such a groundbreaking event in the seventies, and also a source of inspiration for decades to come. So a little tribute if you like to the StarWars universe.

Fantastic! It's an iconic image to be sure, and such a part of so many early memories for so many people.

Hey James again :D I think this is very well done, with some very fine details in the lighting, shadows and reflections xD but if you want some constructive critique then I'd just say that the reflection of the black chin thing just below the base of his mouth looks slightly unnatural since the chin is darker than anything around it while the reflection is lighter - sorry for picky if you may forgive me I just seem to see things like that ;P

Hi Dom.
I always appreciate feedback, good or bad! However, on this occasion, the reference image I used will show the lighting is fairly accurate, based on the original photo. I think it looks confusing in my painting, as it goes dark just below the neck, and the surface creating the reflected light in the black section of the chin is almost missing. I hope you get what I mean! :)
