In 2008, I has several online art buddies who I painted with. This was an art trade. I took a ton of shortcuts. It was my first drawing with a tablet. I used soft brushes for shading, a ‘toothed’ photoshop brush add something like texture to the shirt, and a modified brush meant for painting grass for the stubble. More shortcuts than I’d used before, or have since!
Photoshop, waccom bamboo fun tablet, 20 hours.
