Two in a row? Man, you’re making me proud over here.

Had to use some reference for the body, because I only had 20 min. Those with a high gamma setting might even see the síluette of someone in the window. Man, what a rush job!


30 mins ps

was dry on this one (also: the idea I had looked better in me head)
Flash 5
1 hour and 4 minutes

2 hours, photoshop.


Its like 5 in the morning so I made it quick…about 20 min in PS CS with a Wacom Tablet. This is the first time I have really ever tried anything like this. Sounds like a really cool idea though! I look forward to entering in future contests :wink:
