lovely work- I like his age and his attitude but the 'lighting' makes it.

P.L. Frederick said...

Jeepers but he's a wonderful character. That pride in his expression and body language are wonderful. Especially that 'stash. Your skill with the brush and character development is awesome!

I love the Popeye arms, makes seeing his miniker easier. No eye strain. Crash is his first name isn't it? Reflected light is the best. You make it look easy.

Your artwork is great...I love the characters.
I'm just finishing building my own house and I'm at the painting stage as well...Yeah.."real fun!"
I looks like you've done a great job though. I built my entire house in maya as well just so people could visualize it better and I gotta tell ya..it helps.
GOOD LUCK MAN!
