Hooray for trying new things!

I've been in a drawing funk for awhile now. I stumbled upon this and it seems like a good way to get out of it, provided I have the time. I decided to try an all Wacom image in Photoshop, as I need to get more comfortable with both. 2.5 hours ref search, sketch, and ink, quick 15 min color job.

Well I guess I'm too tired for this, it really turned out uglier than I thought. :argh:
I'll post it anyways to motivate you to do a better one: :p
wasted 45 min in photoshop on it.

Merry Christmas to all. :D

Welcome Calbar, excellent first post!

Good work folks - Michael Motion, that is CLASSIC! Have fun on the slopes!

No time for me today, maybe tomorrow if I finish making the Christmas gifts. I have a
very full day ahead of me tomorrow...or a mad dash at the last minute because I
ran out of time to finish! :)

Happy Holidays to everyone on CGTalk! Keep warm and safe!

doomdragon - this was not time wasted - very funny - esp. for those of us that are middle aged and a little overweight - hey if it can happen to Santa...
