I love this guy.


Just another character of mine.

It's traditional for the most part. I sketched it on paper then colored the hair on adobe, cleaned up the negative space on adobe, and colored his eyes, smoothed the shading on his face, and lined the outer line of his coat in adobe. So yes. I guess it's actually a good mix of both traditional and digital mediums.


I ordered Dean Koontz's "In Odd We Trust" and it came today. It's in manga format. I thumbed through the first few pages and it inspired me to draw something not so chibified (I've been on a chibi binge lately). So yay!

    Wonderful combinations of traditional and and the use of photoshop. It gives a nice sense of texture in the cloak and this matte black of the hair. The composition is also really strong, with the figure talking up 2é3 of the page and the sense of motion going from the top left corner to the bottom right as a result of the cloak

        Your very welcome ^-^ Its just my belief that its more helpful to give actual comments about the piece that are helpful to the artist versus the usual mundane "ohh well aint that just pretty?"
