I started this back in the summer as a �learning experience� piece for Painter�then I overloaded myself with so much work that I had no time to sit down and finish it until now. 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. :]
