Revisited an old piece from my senior portfolio. I'm getting a better handle on a digital painting workflow for myself, at least for mostly character-based stuff. Things are feeling less...mushy.
I'd like to think that my skills have improved since I graduated college, and there were so many things about the original that bothered me over time. But looking back, while the technical execution was lacking in the original, the fundamentals of the value structure and colors were relatively sound. I'm sure over time I'll look at this and it'll bother me just like the original gouache version, but for now I'm mostly content.
