Deus Ex - Adam Jensen by HoustonSharp Deus Ex - Adam Jensen by HoustonSharp
And here it is, finally time to put this one to rest. I had a lot of fun working on it.

The full-res shot is HUGE so I might post some detail shots later on. (I went kind of crazy doing some of the little details)

Adam Jensen, the protagonist of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, from Eidos Montreal. (Incredible game; play it if you haven't done so already).

This painting was done over the course of a few days, a few hours each day. If I had to total it up, I would guess at about 8-10 hours, from ideation to completion.

Thanks for looking! Check back soon for some full-res detail shots!

Don't forget to add me on facebook! :[link]

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure his hands are "too small" in the game as well. I guess because there's no skin. It's supposed to be the size of the skeletal structure? I'm kind of just making things up now, but I do seem to remember noticing before this that Jensen's Serif hands were a little on the small side.

Nice art man, it was a surprise how this game turned out and it's good to see there's a ton on fan art for J.

Great image! The bruising around the cuts, the realistic way the blood flows, the lighting, the details in his hair and hand, the way to you got the smoke to float so weightlessly, and his eye -fierce and full of feeling behind his broken glasses... :D Just a few of the brilliant details I love about this image. Cheers!

I really, really love how the blood flows with the formations of the skin.
Great lighting on his skin, it puts good emphasis on the emotions on his face! I would've suggested his face to be more red from exhaustion, but then again, blood's coming out of his head already so...

But yeah man! It's been awhile since I've looked, but you've really improved on matching skin textures! Amazing work!
(I also need to finish Deus Ex; this was a great reminder. xD;;)
