Surviving by IzzyMedrano Surviving by IzzyMedrano
Another age study. Trying to do a mid to late teen this time... I had some pretty solid reference this time around, a photo of a homeless kid, I changed his expression, he had a little too much ego.

Something about the nostrils seems a bit off to me, but other than that this is really amazing.

amazing lighting and contrast between detail and rough as usual, also a very emotional and - as someone else said - compelling expression.

Wow that's pretty sad to think of being homeless as a 16 or 17 year old. You've captured the pathos well.

I would be surprised to see a man survive being homeless without an ego. The US doesn't take pity on the less fortunate, only the ones trying to conform. It's very sad but true.

I really like this piece though :thumbsup:

once upon a time my old room mate stitch and his friend were walking around Houston and a guy pulled a gun on him, being the gutter punk he was he put his mouth around the barrel and said, "do it" the guy tripped out and was like "damn you're fucking crazy you can come chill with us" then he took them to 5th ward, if you've ever heard of that. cops dont go there, homeboys with m16s on the roofs they had to radio in before they turned the alleyway corner, otherwise they'd be shot. then after they were let in they smoked pot and played wii for three hours and left.

You've really captured the soul of him! I love how his back seems to fade away in the dust and how rocky the texture is
