A Special Xmas Giftie

This year, my sister and her husband bought a new house. My wife and I thought it would be a great idea to get some practice on my home portraits and put together one for her new house as a xmas/housewarming gift. I took it one step further and painted it in watercolor as well. I'm including both versions. I have been checking out a lot of watercolor illustrations and had been dying to try it out over my pens and this was a perfect opportunity! For whatever reason, the scanner really brightened up the colors when I scanned this. I had to desaturate it a bit to match the original. It is 14"x11" and I framed it up nice.

Character Designs

Hi All, I finished another interesting assignment where I needed to create 3 different character designs: Strong, Male, Hero, Young, Female, Assassin, and Old, Feeble, Man. I repurposed a couple of ideas I had in the past and here they are! Colored in Painter with different techniques, I'm still not sure what I'm doing with it, but I like it a lot.
