Illustration work in progress

This is a small section of illustration I started working on a few nights ago, its still pretty rough round the edges but it’s getting there. It’s loosely based on a random picture of an old man I found in my images collection, I referenced the picture for a rough idea of light and shadow and the rest is imagination. My aim is to create a weathered look, like the face is a huge monument formed of twisted wood, rock and other natural materials that have been blasted by the elements over time.  It’s to be part of a larger landscape image, I won’t give too much away at this point, but the finished image will be posted soon(ish).
