This was my attempt at the challenge photo on DailyPaintworks. Before I started, I decided that I would focus on the figure only, and not try to put in any of the background details. I wanted to show how the light was hitting the man. I did this with a huge brush and about one hour, so I couldn't work it to death.
My favorite part is the legs. I didn't get the light on his shoulders right, but no going back! Onward!
