first illustration assignment in progress

This is an illustration for the short story "Until Gwen" by Dennis Lehane. Basically it is the end of the story and the main character in it just whacked his dad over the head with that shovel after he found out he killed his wife while he was in prison. Pretty tragic all around but in my illustration he is leaving all of that behind and heading out to start again.

I still have a lot of work to do on it.

Um...I like. You continue to amaze me. Why was the shovel handle broken? Did he brake off where his finger prints would have been and then burnt the chunk that had his finger prints, because that's what I would have done. I hate when I leave finger prints.
