Velazquez Jesus

This is my 3rd painting with the Cintiq 21 UX and Corel Painter - an image of Jesus from a Velazquez painting. Very loose and sketchy... I started this with the intention of turning it into a more finished painting but then had to go away for the weekend. I came back and thought "you know, it's interesting as is!" It betrays my comic book influences, and I like that. All the scraggly patches of brown-green in the hair was meant as an underpainting... more refined versions of the image would have included drawing tweaks (the hair needs tweaking, especially in the top left where it meets the crown of thorns at an angle that doesn't quite match up with where the hair starts falling from beneath the crown).
