Believe it or not, this is a secret santa gift for another artist friend of mine. Our private crit group decided it would be fun to do secret santa paintings based off of horrible self reference pictures we had laying around.
This is the last piece I have done for 2015. I feel like this is a good way to end the year, and also sets the bar for my work in 2016.
Watercolors and metalic paint (which you can't make out in the scan) on 140lb watercolor paper.
You did an excellent job on this one. I like the colors, shading, and the expression of the character. Two thumbs up on this one.
It was very much inspired by the artwork of Terese Nielsen. My buddy just got it on Chrstmas and is super happy with it =}
Really like the gritty texture and the strong composition!
