Hi all been working on this one over the last couple of days. It started with Corel Essentials, i got an under painting from out of there, with the auto painting feature. Then i took it into AR tonight and started laying down the foundations for some more detailed painting, i'm not sure how detailed at this stage but i'm hoping to be finished by the end of the week, so far i have the base complete :)

Oh and i'm painting from reference from a photo downloaded from stock.xchng (http://www.sxc.hu/)awesome place for gathering photo reference material :)

Lookin good Silentman! Keep pluggin away at it. I have learned (sometimes the hard way) to let the painting evolve into what it wants to become and not so much what you want it to become. Sounds kinda silly but my outcomes are always better when i listen to the painting. Keep us updated! ;):):D

Makes Perfect sense to me Sketch, hmmmm that's strage huh lol

I figured after looking at it a 100 or so times that i need to smooth those strokes out, so tonight i'll begin with just that and start adding the finer details, i am really looking forward to a detailed rendition of the photo i'm painting off, which i will post at the end :)
