NO NO NO NO NO

I TRIED TO PAINT A PORTRAIT TODAY for the first time in quite a while. Coulda been better, but neh.

I finished the latest episode of The Walking Dead (yeah, yeahhhh, I know...) and I decided that I miss Merle. Been a while since we've seen any of him.

Michael Rooker did a delightful job of playing Merle. Loved his character. Hope we see more of him in season 5. heh

Season 5 edit: :C

I never go over my m.o. here you go!

Time: 1h45m
Layers: 1
Brushes: Photoshop default hard round transfer
Wacom bamboo fun small

Used a limited palette from a screen of the show and rendered using shadow shapes. Proportions are off all over the place, but this was good practice regardless.

Didn't like Merle at first, but then around season 3 he became my favorite. Yeah hopefully see more of him 5th season >.>. Great job as usual dude glad to see more than just ponies ^^. Thinking about breaking away myself, I'm just trying to finish my series. I had something like this in mind as well but with Breaking Bad cause Walter White is a bad ass. :D
DeerHooves's avatar
Yeahhh, I know right?! He was difficult to sympathize with in the beginning, but they did well in letting him achieve some personal growth towards the later episodes. And thanks, Silva! ^^ Glad ya likey. It'll be very nice to break away from ponies, y'know? I feel like drawing them isn't really getting me anywhere fast. But yeah! I'm eager to see what yo come up with. I still haven't quite seen much of your series yet >_<
SDSilva94's avatar
Right, he seemed to have redeemed himself in the later episodes ^^. Yeah I will agree I usually do some new stuff on paper before I go digital. I had some stuff in mind that I thought would be fun ^^. Drawing the same stuff over is like stagnating progress I think. I've seen more improvement in my skills when I draw something completely different. Don't worry I'm not forcing you to read it or anything ^^'. Read it whenever you want :>.

:D Yeah! still waiting on season 5 Merle, heh. :P And ohhhhh, yes, good good, nice nice! It's much better to have strong foundations in traditional art before you go into digital. Nice! o: And yeahhhh, when you try to draw other things, you need to think differently and approach them another way. Then you improve! c: And yeahhhhh, no I know, but I do wanna read it so I can give you feedback xD So many things I want to do but keep forgetting to :c
SDSilva94's avatar
Yeah, I may not exactly have strong foundations in that at the moment, but I'm sure with doing a bit of traditional before doing it digital I could build it up. That's right! Brings in new challenges and ideas and if im not mistaken can help build a unique style by putting together those ideas into one. ^^ I certainly love me some feedback on my work ^^. I understand you've been busy with school stuff like that portfolio so don't feel bad about it. What you do for your future is most important :D.

It's better than good, my Deer!
DeerHooves's avatar
Oh, thanksessss, Pibbles! xD I've invested far more time into drawing people than into drawing ponies.
BadMillennial's avatar
I'm serious, it's great!

Ooh, I wanted to ask the great iconjollyjack for a commish; it would be of me and the bird!
BadMillennial's avatar
You must see the classic, "Night of the Living Dead".
DeerHooves's avatar
I haven't seen it yet ._. plz don't hit me i kno it's gud ok

Also! you should try not to reply to your own comments so often. I see you doing it a lot and it's hard to see them sometimes because it doesn't pop up in my inbox xD
BadMillennial's avatar
The reason I do that is so I don't take up space; I gotta show a little more consideration for others, y'know! ;)
DeerHooves's avatar
Yah but then again, your comment will very likely get lost in the sea of other comments!
BadMillennial's avatar
Meh... I'll just do what you ask.
