Capital Flu Commission by ShawnCoss Capital Flu Commission by ShawnCoss
Haven't done a digital painting in a long ass time. But it's hard to turn down some much needed cash so here I went and painted up one of the Drop to Zero characters for a fan of the band.

Took roughly 3 days with 4 hours each night working on it. Hardest part was to come up with decent colors. Still not sure if I succeeded.

Added a leather texture on top of everything to kind of make the whole thing pop with fleshiness =D

i really think you did a great job on the colors. i think that any set of complimentary colors can be used successfully and you did a wonderful job. i really like your painting/coloring technique too.
but as my drawing instructor always states, a good drawing comes from the beginning sketches. i browsed your entire sketch gallery and it really blew me away. great job.

Thank you. I use to never really sketch in the beginning but I find it helps to flesh out my final pieces much better

agreed. i hated gestures, and i kind of still do. most of my gestures are scribble after scribble over each other on the same page, but it really helps that my drawings are kind of sketchy (not in the bad way :D ) though. i can take my "sketchy" drawings and then flush them out later into really blow out jobs.

The color and all is just good old fashion photoshop with a leather texture.

you know I cannot for the life of me remember what you mentioned. You should restate it. I have a horrible memory sometimes.

Very well done :)

"Still not sure if I succeeded."

haha, rest assured, you most certainly prevail :)

The character is very well rendered, and I do love the textures and details.

Thanks Tyler, where would we be without textures to make our art look less crappy ;)

We would be bleeding on the canvases ourselves, assuredly!
