[singlepic id=88 w=320 h=240 float=left] So I’ve been working on this for a year. I’ve never been good with drawing the male body. So I spent the last year practicing it and working on this at the same time.
Another gamer stopped me during a game over a year ago and asked if I still do that painting thing.
Queue deer in headlights.
Yeah…I said. I wasn’t sure (I’m still not sure) what painting thing he thought I did, or what he thought of my capabilities were. Even worse, he offered me wine for it. I asked him, really two or three times if he was sure he wanted me to do it. What little actual paid for artsy type schooling I’ve had is in writing, photography and graphic design. This was me, too cheap to use paint and pencil, using painting software that I save up for in one clump. At most he saw an old character pic of Bianca de Niege done in Poser. Sure I painted the hair and dress but it has a lot of lighting issues.
I will never know what he was thinking because he’s forgotten by now. He lost internet for most of the last year so I haven’t ever given him an update. Oh well.
But I did do it. Time to paint other things.
