My goal was to make it look less digital and more traditionally painted. In my experience the best way to do this is to either not use a line drawing or start painting over the lines as soon as possible. Reliance on the lines make my paintings look flat. With this one, I did a very simple sketch, just to get the big proportions. After a very simple block in, I started painting over the lines. The block in contains enough information to refine the "drawing" in the paint process. At the end, I experimented with a few Photoshop filters to see if the color could be pushed even further. In the end, I just left it as it was painted.
