Portrait of an Antagonist by Mikenestin Portrait of an Antagonist by Mikenestin
My first proper digital painting, all done with a mouse. Please forgive the sketchiness of it all - damn my wrist hurts - ... PS, 5 hours

Subject: the unfathomable I want to ask him a million questions - The first of which is, 'What is your name?'
Brushes and textures: the ineffable genius

Edit: I changed what I didn't really like about the picture. And I'm quite proud of it now. I hope you all like.

I feel kind of stupid, because I have no idea what you changed. But still--this looks amazing. And I still want to jump him . . . *scurries off to remove clothing*

Awesome! I think the sketchiness of this is actually a plus regarding the overall effect of the work.
Anyway, he's got some amazingly done hair. And that coat thing he's wearing-Spiff.
Its amazing how much you've improved. XD

Your very welcome. Hey, you deserve it--you're an awesome artist with a lot of potential!
Good luck on the DD!
I know I'd rather see your work up there than an insane amount of female nudes. *sigh*

I'm somewhat leaning on the 'omgplzdont' side, but then again, if you did one, I wouldn't be surprised if you got a DD.
