Carlitos (2) May 2009 Wacom Intuos 9x12, Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0
Whoever said artwork was easy? To draw this picture, I started with a photo, then sketched, inked, and colored a full picture over it. I hated that picture, so I flattened it, stretched it, and distorted it until it looked more like the Carlitos I was familiar with. Then I sketched, inked, and colored on top of that. And even after all that, I still don't feel like it's good enough for the Portfolio section! But at least Carlitos now has a good picture for his Characters page entry.
