This guy, well this piece, was difficult too. I was in this weird love/hate faze with Painter and did him mostly in Photoshop. Then I wasn't too happy with the colors and shading, stopped working on it for like... a month, then went back and did him over in painter. HAHAHAH! I'm still not sure I captured him right but I'm pleased enough with it it call it done ^^.
I hope it was worth the wait. He's a fiesty one.
I have the HARDEST time doing full body pictures, ya'll don't even know. I have a lot more like this and I think you can see my improvement with each one ^^.
