Chico Bento, Tiago Hoisel (2D)

Title: Chico Bento
Name: Tiago Hoisel
Country: Brazil
Software: Photoshop

This is an illustration I did as a part of the book MSP +50, which is a tribute to the greatest comic artist of Brazil, Mauricio de Sousa. In this book 50 artists made their interpretations for the universe of the Monica's Gang characters, Mauricio's major creation. My first idea was to do a scene with almost the entire Gang, keeping the character's original design. I changed my mind, after some friends suggestions I decided to make Chuck Billy's (the original name in portuguese is Chico Bento) cartoon because it portrays very well a reality in Brazil.
In this image I tried a different resource and used Photoshop's Lensblur to obtain a more realistic blurring effect.
To do that, I created an alpha channel simulating a 3D Depth field pass.

This very well

Excellent as usual.

May I ask what do you use the depth of field image for? Just personal reference or do you use it in some way?
