Was introduced, via a friend from the old Montreal Game Artisans group, to an informal portrait session near my place.
It’s always inspiring to find a cluster of talented artists. These guys are a mixed fine art / illustration / game art crowd, so seemed like a good place to get back into digital.
Was trying to keep it painterly. Been a while since I painted for pleasure in photoshop. The day job has been mostly drawing oriented work lately. I almost forgot how much fun this kind of digital painting can be. Last week’s attempts with the iPad only served to show me how much better it is with a full-scale system on hand.
