Sven Portrait

In Sweden on your last day of work you get.....a portrait.
Well I'm happy with some of the colors. I tried to use as much color theory as I could. There's a few things I'd like to fix but its gone now. Thats what you get for doing something the day its due. No time to make changes.

A little of that. Mostly what I tried to use is the cool and warm part of color theory. In the darks of the hair I didn't use dark brown I used very cool dark blue/greens, and some blue in the hair to help contrast the light. Also I used blues greens and purples around his jaw and in the shadow side of his face instead of using a darker flesh color.
Hope that helps
