Notes: The contest was sponsored by LaLunatique over on deviantart.
For the contest we were supposed to use one of her stock images and turn it into a video game character. It's not easy and I can honestly say that the main thing that held me up was just the pure openess of this task. I mean, there are literally thousands of female video game characters out there.
I'd have to say though, that I finally did it! I played to my strengths like my fiancee has been saying for quite some time and drew it all out first, and then proceeded to paint right over the pencils. That used to be one of my major blocks and I think it was a block for quite a few reasons, the first being a not very good under-drawing. Couple that with my previous lack of digital painting skills. All-in-all I'm counting this one as a success!
It was fun to do, and I can't wait honestly, to do more!
