I painted this character last year and hated how it turned out. So I redesigned him, and am much much much more satisfied with the result... this is exactly how I imagine he would look.

It was designed to be more expressive so I could explore the different brush options that Painter has and learn how to mix those tools with Photoshop to my advantage. I wish I�d done this sooner; I adore how the two programs complement each other and my process has been sped up considerably. The colors are a bit bolder than I normally go for. Trying to expand my horizons and all that. I had a blast with those skintones. :] Sat, 03 Nov 2007 15:08:27 -0400
