Software: Painter, Photoshop

This was a commission for Black History Month 2004. I wanted it to look traditional and it comes really close, this is one of the 1st times I used Painter extensively although Photoshop was used for about 50% of the job. I went for an oilsy look, time to finish is approximately 15 hours. It was fun and I hope to do more soon.


excellent job! almost looks like pastels. my only crit is that the lips appear a bit too red


the ear looks like a small elf ear. Maby you could change the background too, i think with all the colors it looses its colorscheme…

otherwise it looks great, really got that canvas feel to it.
