This is Mitch he's a character from the comic I'm trying to make(yes I am still working on it) called Spirit of the Animals, It's main characters are able to connect to their spirit animals and change into said animal. Mitch doesn't show up for quiet some time though but some info about him is he's about two years older then the main character Riley and becomes his best friend as well as act like a bit of a mentor when Riley first learns about his abilities. He grew up on a large ranch for the first 12 years of his life, he loves hiking, climbing, and swimming, and teasing Riley and flirting with Kristy(another character that I will draw at some point). He returns to the ranch every summer when he's not in school (he was home schooled till like 6th grade) He's a very cheery person and loves to make people smile, just don't hurt those he cares for, he is a wild cat after all, he's goes for the jugular.  (he's supposed to be like 18 in this picture)

I really tried to push myself with this picture to really make sure I didn't get lazy when it came to the background especially, for what I'm capable of right now I feel I did a good job. I'm still working on perspective drawing, lighting, and just backgrounds in general. I didn't use any references for the background except what I could recall from pictures I've seen in my head. I'm very proud of my mountains I think they are my favorite part for the bg, I think Mitch's expression is my favorite thing about him, it just fits his character so well. I did use a pose ref for him, but I had to fiddle a bit, as it was a picture of my (at the time) 8 year old cousin and an 8 year old's dimensions are a bit different then an 18 year old's. But I think I did a decent job. With ever picture I improve just a little and learn something new, and that's satisfying to know. (edit video posted)
