So I'm back to character sketches and character designs. This time I turn to the West for a cowboy.
I drew this in Corel Painter X. I'm really starting to enjoy the look of digital inks. As I mentioned in a previous post, digital art should look like digital art and not traditional, and this is another step towards creating a unique look for my work.
I created two versions to test coloring styles. For the first I used my typical painting style in Painter from the half page comic days. For the second I used a new style with Photoshop shadows. I thought the second version would looks better, but I think I like the first.
I think the background turned out exceptionally well. The figure I'm not as happy with. It's good, but not great. He feels a little stiff.
But let me hear what you think.
