I painted this in Artrage. I figured out how to used the watercolor brush but halfway decided I didn’t like the look of it so I switched back to the oil brush. There is some mistakes, I made the nose a bit too long. I choose yellow as the color to paint with, it made me look like vampire so after I was done painting it I opened it in Photoshop and adjusted the hue of the painting to have a more natural flesh tone. . And it looks more like a young version of my dad then me. I still liked how it came out though.
Painted in Artrage with a Wacom Tablet then minor fix in Photoshop
Time Spent 1 hour

I was almost tempted to give this post the title ‘Self Portrait as a Alligator’ to continue my silliness from my last post but decided against it.
Speaking of silliness: Deviant Art has now jump started a new dating service called ‘Deviant Heart’: A dating service for artist. This has to be a April Fools joke.. I hope..
