I forgot I even did this... about this time last year I was making new artwork for my minecraft texture pack and this is one of the ones I ended up keeping.
The bottom is the original picture. I don't remember where I got it, it may have been some old clipart and images pack from years ago...either way, I didn't take the photo nor do I know who did, but I've included it below my work as reference.
As for my version? Well, what can I say... My wacom tablet and a mind numbing amount of layers later, a few
filters here and there, and this is the end result.
I realized that in all the time I've been on DA, uploading crafts and zelda stuff I've made, character and anime drawings and photography, I've never really uploaded anything I've painted- real life or digital. So I thought it was about time I share something totally unrelated. :3
