On the Painting Table: The Skinsaw Man

This is very much WIP, but I wanted to at least put a stake in the ground that I have something I'm working on. The guy's coat is a deep purple, but I wanted A) to create the look of dramatic, ghoulish green underlighting (to be emanating from some mold on its base), and to B) have the coat one of those almost iridescent silk affairs. Consequently, I used a few shades of green to provide the underlighting and the shadows (which are on top). It's been an interesting exercise in using a color wheel.
