this was sort of an exercise in using reference. i decided to push towards a more realistic result by observing photos of sunsets, perspective from below (for the face), jellyfish, and hands. i think that i focused on this too much and the picture turned out too static, but it was good practice.

drawn in photoshop CS3 with an intuos3 tablet. textures from cgtextures.com , tips on how to use textures can be found here - [link] and for other tips check out my f.a.q - [link]

EDIT: resubmitting, because apparently it did not show up in poeple's message centers. wtf?? sorry to those who commented and faved on the other version.

hey! i actually stopped selling mouse pads because i wasn't sure of the quality. I can offer this one as a mouse pad temporarily so you can purchase one though, that's no problem :) could you send a pic of your old one to loishh@gmail.com?

I love that you draw people with dreadlocks. As a dreadie myself, it's pretty rare that I see them depicted in the artistic world.

I love this; I've been looking for a reference for sort of a looking-up perspective of someone and this is perfect. I love the colors as well.
