Smooth!, Gabriel Vera (2D)

Title: Smooth!
Name: Gabriel Vera
Country: Mexico
Software: Painter, Photoshop

This was my 'STRANGE BEHAVIOR' Pic, It was some sort of All-fun thing to me. I tried to add all the things I like to draw the most: Cute girls, funny animals, stepped on gum, many different textures and a hidden ghost face. (Damn, I didn't think of it until now, That would have been so cool!)
The fur texture was done using a scattered brush for the random look and then painting over it to add volume and color, Rita's jacket and skirt have a texture sample overlay at some 30% opacity, the rest of the characters is just Painter's least fancy brush I could find and some minor smudge.
Anyway, My goal was to make the bison look really big and heavy, and portrait the action as clear as possible, I also wanted to show a 'V' shaped composition following the lines of the crushed bench, Please let me know if it works for you.

Thank you!

Very nice and solid piece. I love the lighting and the attention to details (like the bison fur). The color palette is also beautiful.

Congratulations on the great image!
