After being inspired by Journey I decided to do a little art work. I used to study 3D Animation and Video Games design and used to fill pads with drawing and have GB's of photoshop pieces, but now study Computer Science and miss being creative. This also means that I have none of my art supplies at university with me.
My latest venture is using my iPad 2 and SketchBook Pro. Painting with my fingers is enjoyable and the program is easy to use with tones of depth. After 30mins of messing around here is my progress. Any constructive feedback is welcome. Also the images I used is one from Ryans wiki page as reference.
I am finished with the first "skin" layer and will add more detail to the ear and neck where needed. Next the eyes and start work on giving that manly beard the justice it deserves!
Update (again) - Redone the beard, and added the eyes. Also did some cleaning up.
