Barbarian Portrait in progress

Switching gears for a bit and trying my hand at painting a self portrait with dramatic lighting (as a barbarian of course) :) Totally motivated by reading "A Storm of Swords" haha. Blocking in tones and rough colors right now and hoping to wrap this up sometime soon. It's been a while since I've attempted to approach any kind of realism. Definitely a challenge but fun!
