I did it!

My first real concept painting finished!

It was hard. It took long. Too long, but that's okay, it was my first time. I realise now the importance of really making an accurate sketch. You can only polish so much before you run into problems that take ages to fix.

I'm proud of this, and I'm proud of myself. Totally DIDN'T intend for her to look asian :P

Hard work over.

It's almost done, just need to add the colours.

The really tough part in finishing up this far has been battling my own self doubt and facing the real pressures of someone telling me I'm no good.

I can do anything. Won't be long now :)

God made the liquify tool for me.

I really came through today, despite so many things changing in my daily routine.

I managed to remove (hopefully most of it) the chipmunk cheek problem and started detailing her upper torso.

I really moved things around until I was happy with the overall balance of the image.

More Updates

Got my Wacom Intuos 4 JOY!!! :D

Le Capi TON! Part 2

Collapsing layers and working more flat has really helped me break away from rigidly painting layer by layer. It also helps me focus on the entirety of the painting.

2D Struggle

I'm painting my first 2D character in Photoshop.

It's my first time not relying on lines to guide my process.

I've never struggled so hard with my art as now.

I can only improve. THANK GOD for that! :)

The first.

This is it. This is my humble start to something I hope will grow and inspire those that come after. That is my goal, to prove that keeping a record of your progress can result in the most amazing acheivements.
