I Am Optimistic, Mahmoud Almakkawy (2D)



Title: I Am Optimistic
Name: Mahmoud Almakkawy
Country: Egypt
Software: Photoshop

Hi all. :)

This is my first artwork posting here in cgtalk :)
The painting is about an Optimistic guy as he tries to be a better person, learning from his mistakes, and do his best.There is some parts that needs more work, but that's how far i could go with painting for now and i'm happy with the result .
Done in photoshop cs3 with mouse, and no references were used as i wanted to test my imagination.Here is a making off animated image which needs firefox

or opera to see it animated :

Comments are most welcome.Hope you like it. Thanks :)

Get a tablet, for god sake! I've been checking out your videos and it hurts me to see you having to work so much for each single stroke. You deserve better than that.
